    Pretty sure he is just making reference to what was done to other people convicted of treason in this country(see the Lincoln conspirators). I'm sure if you thought about it for a moment longer you would have come up with that on your own.

    and they wonder why people use the term "reactionary" liberals. sheesh

    Imagine that Nimby.....although not really. I don't want us to take care of him. Feed, cloth, and treat him medically, until the day he croaks off and dies.

    I rather have him face what he knows.....now has to come. Then maybe when he gets to the other side. He can leak us some info from there.

    Far too many people do not consider what Snowden has done to be treason at all! But obviously far too many would rather see a man who has exposed wrong doing of a government agency hanged than the agency embarrassed and reformed as SOOOOOOO many are calling for!!!!

    To speak to the Rand Paul side of the NSA and Snowden, the Liberal Dems also have a problem with Drones and transparency..
    The Amash amendment cut across both parties, barely lost, and is a rare libertarian coalition these days in Congress..
    Neo-cons like Boehner and Feinstein want to hang his ass..
    Btw, Amash is getting primaried by a RINO in MI .

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    There's a lot of people in the USA who are fine with the federal government engaging in unlimited spying on their citizens without cause. I bet that number coincides with the number of people who have never read 1984.

    In his letter, Snowden, a former NSA contractor, writes, "Today, if you carry a cell phone in Sao Paolo, the NSA can and does keep track of your location: they do this 5 billion times a day to people around the world. When someone in Florianopolis visits a website, the NSA keeps a record of when it happened and what you did there. If a mother in Porto Alegre calls her son to wish him luck on his university exam, NSA can keep that call log for five years or more. They even keep track of who is having an affair or looking at pornography, in case they need to damage their target's reputation.

    As the Brazilian president chided the US, without privacy, you have no real democracy. If security trumps privacy **** security, I ain't scared of ****.

    Unfortunately it's worse than that, were so ****ed. Just two or three generations ago would never have stood for this. Now listen to them calling for Snowden's head!

    I read it back in school, late 50's or early 60's. Good book.
