I don't care what they think about it. The court has been altering original intent for a long time. I'll chose the words of our Framers over the "living Constitution" that was written on rubber as per the Jefferson quote above. This is whey we currently live under a tyranny with relentless spying etc.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
