We hung a lot of folks after WWII for doing things they were”ordered” to do.
Saying he had a contract seems a lot like follow orders blindly to me.
I consider myself a staunch conservative ( except for the religious part),definitely no Liberal but this NSA thing strikes me as a load of C***.
Ditto for most of the TSA,definitely the IRS malfeasance.
Guess I’m going to have to become a TEA party guy.
Sometimes someone has to make a stance against all that is powerful in order to make a change.
(I know this has been discussed already in some aspects). Anyway, Edward Snowden to me is a hero of sorts and will go down in (my) history book(s) as one for as long as live. The fact the United States is charging him for treason and espionage is down right immoral.
Sara Palin said it best (I know Sara Palin made a point, I was shocked too!) She said “Let me get this straight…
- Person A: Violates the Constitution
- Person B: Tells everybody that Person A violated the Constitution
But Person B is the “traitor”?
“That’s what’s backwards about this”–Sarah Palin. It’s our leaders that should be charged for violating the constitution. What the government is doing is wrong and immoral. This is not America or the meaning it has is no more.

while I do believe that Snowden acted with the best intentions, I also think that he broke the law and that his heroism is pretty conditional…
I mean, the government has its reasons for “spying” on people, its in the interest of national security. if you are a normal citizen, its unlikely you have anything to worry about. Snowden breached security, and I think its unlikely we will see any major repercussions, but who knows?
no, I don’t think the government should be messing around in our private records. this is more an issue of principal than anything else though, because I doubt they were too concerned with whatever your doing in your private life anyway, unless you seem like a terrorist.
especially with regards to the internet…i mean nothing on here is really private and you should keep that in mind if you post anything, even if it says “private” on top. Not to mention, private companies like google and yahoo and facebook have probably already sold any information of yours that they had!
Wondering if all those calling for Snowden to be tried, will line up to also demand that Clappper be tried for contempt of Congress?
