6. and how far is it
to them just being able to 'randomly' search your home. Or just search every home in a particular neighborhood, without a warrant?

If they can search everyone getting on a train, which otherwise goes against the fourth ammendment, because the search is 'reasonable' because there are people who would bring bombs on trains in backpacks....

How far is it from there to the searching of everyone's homes, whenever they want, without warrant, because terrorists are building bombs in basements, or hiding homemade dirty bombs in a basement, so it's now 'reasonable' to just search anyones homes whenever they want...

That's the problem. Allowing this basically nullifies the entire fourth ammendment.
