    I feel the same way about the First Amendment. Only words/phrases/idioms/metaphors/etc. that existed at the time, as well as types of communication (spoken word, hand-written letters, etc.), should be protected. Something like "the internet" would not have been in the minds of the Founding Fathers when writing the 1st amendment and thus should not be protected by it.

    And the 4th. When they said "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures," they had no idea about iPhones or computers, so they should be able to be searched without a warrant. And nobody had cars, so they should be able to be searched too.

    The operative word being unreasonable, which is a word that seems to fit the american conservative to a tee.
