    It may be legal but, at its core, it fundamentally undermines the Constitution in many ways.

    Then what do you call all these terrorist and their agenda to our nation and around the world? In our nation our constitution is being under minded by thugs who violated it on 9/11. So where does that leave us? This is an honest question here and we as a nation can't have our cake and eat it too. It has to be one way or the other and not we it's convenient to use.

    If it undermines the Constitution, then it is, by very definition, illegal. You can't have it both ways.

    If it doesn't specifically violate the Constitution how can it fundamentally "undermine" it? You could just as easily say it fundamentally protects the Constitutional rights of Americans, especially the right to not be murdered by savages. But then again, people like you don't believe anyone has a "right to life".

    It does specifically violate the Constitution.
    It goes against the 1st amendment, ensuring freedom of speech (ask the American Library Association's office for intellectual freedom); the 4th amendment, protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures; and it goes against the 6th amendment, ensuring fair and speedy trials, legal counsel, and the right to liberty (ask the Tipton Three).
