It's sad that people like Snowden are able to expose agencies like the NSA to dramatically that he had to flee to other countries and is now sleeping in a moscow airport due to persecution. How the government lies, and maybe the freedom and the independence that we are so known for, may not be as liberal as we thought, and before you go ahead say "MURRICA GOT NO FREEDOM" about 90 percent of countries out there probably have it worst, but that's not the point. I just think this sad that this guy exposed this truth for all of our knowledge, lost his job and his life in freaking Hawaii and we are all sitting back and not caring. Government should be afraid of it's people, not vice-versa.

They are afraid, that's why they go after people like snowden and shelter us from information. Because if we knew, we might take their power away from us.

You know, if the internet managed to have a country he'd have full asylum there.

I'm thinking that his story and others are starting to turn the apathy we've felt for so long into outrage, and outrage is the most powerful thing we have when it comes to changing the government. If only though there were a way people would do it peacefully instead of doing what people in Cairo are doing, then other countries might decide to help us and people like Snowden.

In fairness he broke his contract; he absolutely deserved to be fired. The rest is the government running scared because its been exposed as the evil enemy the Founders knew back under King George.
