Grandest and most astonishing non-sequitur of the year: Because I use a cell phone and leave a trail of information about myself on the Internet, I should not object when the government secretly collects and stores information about me.

Reasoning: If you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide.

Response: You may think that about yourself and your own privacy. On what grounds do you suggest that others ought to think the same way about this matter?

Conclusion: Government has no privacy rights. When it wants to keep something secret, it has something to hide. Citizens do have privacy rights, which government cannot abridge. That’s why the Fourth Amendment instructs government about what it cannot do in this area. The question of whether a citizen has something to hide is entirely irrelevant.
