Personally, I do not believe the erosion of our privacy has made us any safer from terrorist. I do not believe that the privacy of our email should be any different than regular mail. In other words, law enforcement should need a warrant to access it. Unfortunately The Electronic Communications Privacy Act states that they do not need probable cause to search email.
It is time to change that. Take back your privacy, contact your representatives and tell them to cosponsor HR 1852, The Email Privacy Act. You can find out how to contact your representative at usa.gov. You can also track HR 1852. It is important that we make some noise about this issue for it currently only has about an 18 % chance of passing.
