On the flip side - the lawmakers constantly break the laws with impunity and then create new laws making it illegal to point out their tyranny.
Hell of a conundrum - ain't it?
Snowden stole 1.7 million secret documents and escaped to China! From there he went to Russia. It is pretty clear Chinese and Russians have gotten all the secrets he stole by now.
He didn’t just leak that the government was spying, he TOOK millions of additional files worth of information. I don’t think it was just about the spy program, but those files must contain VERY valuable info about more than just the NSA spying system. Over a million files of info isn’t at all just about a simple spying system. IF the Chinese let him stay and then go on to Russia he must have something considerable.
As for the rest, he is trying to sell info to Brazil in exchange for official political asylum. Please explain to me WHY that is patriotic? How is that standing up to tyranny?
