VST: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.
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
VST: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!
liahona,"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?...."______________________________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.
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.
Maybe he got snowed in.
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!
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?
