Thanks to Edward Snowden for blowing the whistle on those who want to make our country a police state.

formergop: "Let the whole Snowden family have a nice permanent vacation in the USSR."......Snowden is or at least was in Russia not the USSR although with your strong support of authoritarian governments, the former USSR would have been a great place for someone like yourself.

So if I were Russia, wouldn't you be afraid Snowden might be a whistle blower for some of the human rights abuses you(Russia)have going on in the country? As for Snowden, I see another Sara Jane Olsen aka Kathleen Soliah, where in 20 years we find he's moved back to the states only to be pulled over by police, in a minivan (with his kids)and taken into custody.

spillguy: "Don't let him back in and seize all their property. They are suspected enemies of the USA.".......How do you seize someone’s property in a free country without a trial simply because you suspect them of wrong doing? What enemies did Snowden aid? He aided me by confirming my suspicions that our government was violating our constitutional rights. Does that make me and every other American an enemy of yours?

Why do I suspect these anti-Snowden people are the same people who yell about too much government, "Keep the Government's hands off my Medicare," and the IRS being the bad guy? Snowden outed the government for secreting monitoring our lives, and the IRS was actually only doing its job of enforcing the laws against granting non-profit status to political entities. You're watching too much Fox propaganda that you don't see your contradictory views.
