The 4th Amendment has been ignored even longer
We have not lived Constitutionally for years, decades in fact. Only Congress can declare war, yet Congress has abdicated that responsibility and handed it over to the Executive who now sends troops wherever he wants on the planet. This has been happening for at least 30 years, probably longer.
The Supreme Court has desecrated the notion of Constitutional rights by declaring that Corporations are persons who should have Constitutional rights (and fetuses are not).
Since the "war on terror" began, our government's answer to terrorism is to treat everyone like terrorists and totally ignore the Constitution. Habeas Corpus has been ignored for over a decade now. The 4th Amendment has been ignored even longer.
