    The Bill of Rights says:

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    A question for you. Would you consider your email and documents to be "papers."

    Digital Documents are still documents.

    The Government would like you to get tripped up on that word "paper". But "paper" in old English also means, document.

    It still means that in modern English as well, but if people are allowed to re-right history and The English Language ..... They'll have you believing something else.
