I'm sure you think you are a "patriot" whatever you feel that means. If being a "patriot" entails standing up for the power of the "state" to secretly monitor every activity of the "citizen" then count me out.
It's time to drop the affection for "America" and realize that we have become worse than "Russia". Our people no longer fight the power of the "State". They embrace it. They long for more long as their own goons are pulling the levers.

We now know why his son is like he is. They both have not studied History. I love our country. I just don't like some people in the government.

It is time to stand up peacefully against these crimes. If you would like to do that consider THE MILLION MASK MARCH . ORG. Many collective grass roots movements including Occupy and Anonymous will be protesting that day. Please participate and spread the word.

He is a hero in my eyes, and I am retired USNavy. Mike, above me is right on. I am glad he is safe, and I pray that he remains so. The traitors in this country ARE our problem, the ones who chose to try to enslave us, and the rest of the world. They will lose, their days are numbered, and we all know what that number is!

Stay there, Edward, because America is no longer 'land of the free.' You know that, Edward, this country is a police state, a trap that beneath the surface supresses its own citizens like never before.
The middle class is wiped out in favor of the super wealthy and the soup kitchens are getting longer and longer. It is a fascist state, where the rich constantly creates new laws to protect their wealth and their 'investments' while the rest continues to get less and less, in income, in quality of life, in education, in housing, etc, etc.

Political commentary sites are typically monitored, and infiltrated with counter disinformation! Nevertheless, in a free country, people like to voice their opinion.

Wh en 32 million Egyptians took to the streets with cell phone cameras, and world news cameras, there was no way any leader can order the extermination of such great number. The same thing here, there are millions who have some opinions critical of our foreign policies! The NSA could not arrest all of them. They are mostly good citizen with valid opinions as why they think different from our political elite.

I like the situation where Snowden has put the NSA and the CIA. These people are whats wrong with our country. They flout their authority as if they were above any laws and shove it in our faces because they know there is little we can do as a population. If you think they would hesitate for one second to put a bullet in your head then sadly you have bought into this movement to remove our liberties and tou are now part of the problem.

Thank You Russia!


Philo Michael 17.10.2013 08:27

Russia is doing a remarkable job to harbor Snowden! Iam a royalist of Russia

Why do I have the terribly uneasy feeling that sometime in the not too distant future we're going to be reading a news report about the death of Lon Snowden?

As the US under its' present leadership is eroding, its' freedoms under the constitution being lost, its' citizens becoming subjects with absolutely no privacy or power, and the government legally able to assassinate its' citizens, Russia on the other hand is a shooting star on the world scene. The citizens in Russia have made great strides in their freedoms, the country is respected on the world scene, Russia has competent leadership, and is economically stable. I wish I were a Russian now and could enjoy some of their freedoms that they have since gained since Reagan.

we should thank this man, he gave up job, family, friends to give us true and valuable information. instead of killing him we need to protect him so the next person who wants to disclose, can. bless the snowdens of this world
