Our "government" needs to stop living in, and promoting, fear of what "might" happen and get back to the business of building a better country. Unfortunately our representatives have taken to the idea that they know what is best for us without the courtesy of telling us.

Snowden might not be a traitor, but at best he is just a misguided narcissist who arrogantly chose to attack the security of where he worked because "my bosses ignored me" and "we all could use the information do do bad stuff." I've got news for you. There are lots of information gatherers who can and do use their information to do bad stuff. For the convenience of using credit cards, banks, hospitals, and even paying taxes, we all risk some of our security. Should we eliminate police...

Snowden might not be a traitor, but at best he is just a misguided narcissist who arrogantly chose to attack the security of where he worked because "my bosses ignored me" and "we all could use the information do do bad stuff." I've got news for you. There are lots of information gatherers who can and do use their information to do bad stuff. For the convenience of using credit cards, banks, hospitals, and even paying taxes, we all risk some of our security. Should we eliminate police records from crime scenes, criminal records, and education information? How about security cameras in stores and high crime areas? All these things invade privacy and information from them could be used against us. If Snowden actually could name a case where someone was damaging a citizen by abusing the information, by all means, report it, Real whistle blowers do this all the time. Fools like Snowden just develop paranoid fantasies about what people "could do

(Oops, mistakenly hit "enter" before finished.) My point is that if Snowden really wanted to help anyone, he should have waited until he had a real case of abuse and only blow the whistle if superiors covered it up. His screaming about the agency having the necessary power and secrecy to do its very serious job for no reason other than to make himself a "hero" to wacko right-wing conspiracy theorists and try to supply more mud for the bigots to sling at Obama is probably about as close to...

If terrorists succeed in killing a few thousand more Americans because some hands are tied at the NSA, not only will those touting Snowden as a hero be screaming for his head, the NSA will gain carte Blanche to do whatever it wants. After another 9/11, congressional show-boaters will expand the power that NSA has today to nearly infinite proportions. If you want to limit the NSA's power, you better let them do all they can to catch the bad guys.

snowden should be promoted. crooks he exposed shold be criminally prosecuted.

immediatly fire gov workers who want to fire or press charges agianst people for searching and seizeing gov's property with probable cause of find evidence of gov-crime or gov-misconduct(crime includes gov searching and seizeing non-gov's property at large w.o resonable suspcion).
immediatly fire gov workers who(or think its ok for gov to:) search or seizure w/o probable cause of crime

its impossible to prevent/stop all bad things from happening. HOW could
hypocritically spying on everyone prevent crime? DETAILS? EXAMPLES?! even if it could, the risk of people being punished for speech is higher than the chance it would prevent crime. gov spying on everyone could be and has been used to murder(might blame it on defense, suicide, make it look like an accident, or frame someone), disappear, abuse, arrest, and punish people for speech ,political and reglious beleifs, and association. gov can more easily get away with and conceal crime.
if gov thought spying on everyone was good for national security, gov wouldnt have a problem with publisizeing everything about gov and being 100%transparent, w/o non-gov even haveing to ask. it doesnt, becaues it just wants to punish speech.

plans, plots,and funding "terrorist groups" arnt illegal. freedom of speech. first fire gov workers who plan to commit crimes(exspecially murder)agianst innocent people.
some corrupt gov workers wrongly lable law-abideing average people terrorists based on speech or political/religious beleifs, because corrupt gov is terrified of law-abideing people that want to expose and stop corruption.

gov who hypocritically searches and seizies w/o reasonable suspcion is a traitor who betrayed their oath to defend the consitution and supreme laws of the land.

they're a tratior for betraying the public lieing to them saying they are there for national security when actualy they breach national secuirty, and only secure gov criminals from being prosecuted.

gov workers who hypcoritically spy on the public at large w/o reasonable suspcion, are the enemy.

only criminals would say exposeing/leaking evidence of crimes is aiding the enemy because law-abideing people that try to stop crime are a criminal's enemy.

gov is subject to transparency laws that non-gov isnt subject to

its legal to share (gov info that is legally sapose to be published) with the public

public sector(gov) is sapose to be the public's employees and be publicly viewable(w some good-reasoned public approved exseptions)

non-gov is the private sector-

meaning non-gov has the right to privacy. everyone is the public.

corrupt gov says: top secret criminal intel gathering programs and gov's classified crimes if exposed put national security at risk.(actually its the oposite, ...its good for national security to expose top secret criminal intel gathering programs. it puts national security at risk for gov to spy on the whole public- it puts criminals at risk of being caught if their crimes are exposed)

corrupt gov says: its to keep the country safe.(actually its to keep criminals safe from being legally and rightfully fired and charged)
corrupt gov says: were takeing phone records and spying on non-gov at the same time punishing anyone who spys on us. its well known were only collecting info w the intent to use it agianst people, and there's a high chance it will be used to punish people for speech and association-because it happened before(like the irs scandal(punitivly taxed for poltical beleifs), and punishments could get much worse inlcudeing murder torture and imprisionment for diagreeing w gov)-no need to worry its for your saftey, your dum enough to beleive that right?
the only reason to collect info(speech/words) is to use it(in this case to discriminate agianst people based on it)

when gov collects unnessicary info-people get punished for their speech and association(irs scandal)

gov isnt more moral than non-gov.

w/o liberty your not safe. the only point of saftey is to keep your liberty safe and to be safe from haveing your liberty taken away from you. w/o liberty and freedom, whats there to keep safe?nothing.

when we have the freedom to do what we want with our private property and bodies as long as it doesnt touch or endanger others private property w/o their permisison, our property is safe from being stollen/taxed, controlled, kidnapped, restricted, trapped, physcially abused, or murdered.

gov's job isnt to collect unnesicary info or search w/o probable cause
gov has alot more serious crimes it should be going after(like violent offenders, kidnappers) instead of spying on everyone

gov's job is to protect people's right to not have their private property searched or seized w/o probable cause.

see something say something-report gov's suspcious activity
whistle blower law-cant legally get in trouble for reporting crime/gov-misconduct

its gov's job to report and try to stop crime/gov-misconduct, and protect everyone=under the law=not letting some get away w the same type of misconduct you dont let others get away with, =no spying on everyone while at the same time disallowing everyone to spy on you

require gov workers report gov-misconduct and gov's activity that is suspected to be misconduct or else get fired and owe wage refund. (exsept in cases where your likely to be punished if you reported-however you must still do whatever you can to report in a safe way

allowing criminals to go unpunished puts everyone at risk.

require gov workers immediatly investigate reports of gov misconduct and take minor complaints seriously

put gov under 24-7live public video survailence(exsept w detailed good reason presented to the public to keep certian info secret). reasons for gov secrets shouldnt be secret.

make gov delete all info it illegally collected, and info collected that isnt freely accessble to the public(ex buying info from bussiness's), w/o at least reasonaoble suspision of a crime.
