I love how people are trying to make this only about Snowden. Who gives a **** about Snowden? If he broke the law, great. If he didn't, great.

Let's not forget that the US government has been spying on it's own people. This is very against...everything. None of this pussyfoot ******** of "Oh...well...technically it's legal because Congress passed a law to fight terrorism and"--no. "Yeah...well...they said they're only going to use this information if they have a warra.."--no. If you're naive enough to believe that *********, you need to get your head examined.

The 4th Amendment of the Constitution clearly says "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

It's "shall not be violated", not "shall not be violated unless it's convenient to do otherwise."

I mean, seriously, what the **** type of country are we--and how dare we try to impose our values on other people--if we won't even stand up for our own values in our own country and just roll over whenever someone tells us to?


Sorry, I got a bit ranty there. Here's a kitty to compensate.

your federal bank is privately owned
your congress is made out of criminals (litterally, a large portion of them have been charged with serious criminal charges)
your top government is in the pockets of big corporations
you're fighting useless wars for petty causes
you wage a "war on drugs" with no effect

what kind of country are you?
you're the kind of country even the corrupt-to-the-bone Italy laughs at.

you know what corruption even means?
corruption is when non-political parties can buy politicians
all making the federal bank private does, is skip the part of buying the politician, and give the power to the ones that would've bought them, directly.

Again,

Because they are appointed by the president, but not controlled by him. You elect your house and senate who in turn vote for the president who in turns appoints people to things such as the Federal Reserve Board( which can be challenged by the senate ).

I also love how people forget that the information Snowden released isn't just about what the government does to its people, but also information that could harm US' relations with other countries. Not forgetting that all of it was premeditated and he just so happens to be connected to countries that have zero tolerance for free speech.

Didn't anyone find it weird when China supported his actions - the same China that openly spies on its people and has huge censorship issues?

You dumb ****. Hong Kong has one of the greatest policies of free speech, Hong Kong is completely autonomous from China, regardless of being a part of it. It is a city state holding its own sovereignty due to their struggle with Great Britain.
He chose the countries he went to specifically, not because they're threats to the U.S, or anything of the sorts, but only because they have no extradition treaties with the U.S. Of course the idea of Snowden giving harmful information away remains, but by his own words he has no intention, he only wants to use his information to try to fix what is so wrong within the U.S.

No **** it makes america look bad on the global scale, the government was spying on its citizens!

That's like saying you should feel bad for tattling on a bully because he will look bad to the other classmates. He SHOULD look bad for doing that. People should be fired, hell people should be arrested to fix this. Snowden just exposed the truth.

Because in Funnyjunk's mind, Barack Obama is the sole cause of every government action, and that this speech reflects his personal opinion only- because no one else has any say into what he does. He isn't even in charge of the courts that would convict Snowden of espionage/treason.

Here's why I believe it is important to be against the NSA and Obama's actions. Many of you think spying on citizens is just a way for the government to keep us safe, and so long as we don't partake in illegal, "terrorist"  behavior, why should we be worried?    
   
Well, it's because it violates the Bill of Rights, as well as our fundamental rights as free citizens. The Bill of Rights was specifically established to protect us, the citizens, from the inevitable event that the government uses the Constitution as a way to limit individuals' rights and in a sense, "take over". Come on guys, Thomas Jefferson KNEW something like this would happen, and so he, along with a handful of anti-federalists made sure that we would still have rights.    
   
So how did they violate the Bill of Rights? The fourth amendment, guarding us against unreasonable searches and seizures:   
   
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized"   
   
There have been numerous landmark Supreme Court cases where victims of these same violations fought and argued so that today, us citizens could maintain a sense of privacy and discretion in our daily lives. I honestly don't want to live in a world where every word I type is recorded, and being lulled into a false sense of security by the government is awful. Learn your constitutional rights and fight for them when the government tries to take them away.

sorry to break your bubble son, the bill of rights was written by the government, just an older one.

Well, the Bill of Rights is pretty much the first ten amendments to the Constitution (which, as you said, the "government" wrote). They ensure that the national government is limited and protect our natural rights to life, liberty, and property. The Bill of Rights was guaranteed by Anti-Federalists who feared the government's central power and wanted a "backup" in the case that the government spirals down into tyrannical rule.

I am careful about what I say on public profiles because obviously, it can be easily read. However, the NSA has access to our phone calls, private messages, and encrypted data (the purpose of which was to protect data from being seen by no one other than its designated audience).

The Bill of Rights has never been altered in any way. They are constitutional amendments and none of them have ever been repealed, except the 18th amendment (Prohibition - Volstead Act). In most cases companies do have a right to give private information to intelligence agencies if they believe that the user is suspected of some kind of illegal behavior. However, I find the idea of recording and sending everything from our e-mails to phone calls, and even worse, encrypted data (meaning PGP-encrypted e-mails where lawyers handle confidential, attorney-client ONLY communications, medical records, etc.) a horrible blow to society. Encrypted data was MEANT to protect people's privacy, data which the government nor the NSA have ANY right to touch.
