[quote][b]2dollar[/b] - @ppensyl: I was referring more to a right to privacy, not welfare, but I agree with you nonetheless.
Agreed, one has a right to privacy so long as what they are doing privately is legal. If you are doing Cocaine privately the law supercedes that right to privacy.

I would argue, and I think we are on the same page, that once you accept public funds they can apply certain things which they can demand in exchange. You can still have your right to privacy just not under those stipulations you voluntarily give up in order to accept the funds. In essence you have agreed to waive those rights in exchange for the funds. I support that 1000%
