If what the government is doing is unconstitutional by gathering information like this, then why isn't there an uproar by the citizens of the USA to put a stop to this? As i see it, Snowden is a patriot not a traitor, for exposing what the government is doing all in the name of anti-terrorism. Or am I wrong in my opinion of the situation?

Whistle blowers are heroes if the government is being run by Republicans and their secrets are exposed (Watergate) but traitors if the government is run by Democrats and their secrets are exposed! It depends on what, is, is!

The latest news seems to indicate that Snowden admits to being a spy - he took the job at Booz-Allen specifically to get the data he was looking for, which most likely is now in the hands of the Russians and/or Chinese.

If / when we get into a Cyber-war with China or the Russians, and we come out on the short end of the stick, remember the great patriot Snowden, who blew the whistle loud enough for everyone to hear.

It’s no great mystery. As you surely know, not everyone shares your view that the work the NSA does is unconstitutional. Snowden himself voiced no objections or qualms in four years of feathering his nest with a $200,000 per year salary. The first indication of any problems he had with what he was doing came only a few weeks ago when without warning he fled the country one step ahead of the cops.

Make something wrong into a law, than it becomes right?

Political leaders spying on its people than classifying the information is flat out wrong, and the IRS has no business knowing my political, or religous views.

Didn't do very much with the Boston bombers, or guns to Mexican cartels, did they? Have they stopped the killing in Chicago, or slow drug trafficing? No! But it's ok to spy on innocent people?

Snowden is a patriot!

Strongly agree with VST that "Snowden violated criminally established law". A criminally minded state imposing and enforcing criminally established law needs to be resisted in the name of morality, democracy and fairness.

In a free, and prosperous society, laws are made on moral values.

Take away moral values, and laws become corrupt, and chokes a civilization.

Our people have become confused, and argumentative with defining the word "moral", and our country is decaying. Look around you! It's very obvious.

Political leaders spying, and punishing the people they serve is wrong. Making it a law to spy doesn't change that.

It becomes our duty to speak out when laws are wrong. If not, we'd still be a part of England.
