    Just like you saying the Right hates the Federal Government. Hyperbole much?

    Of course the right hates the Federal Government. Hell, you ancestors on the Right fought a war to escape it. It was in the history books. Look at the period 1861-1865. Nothing much has changed, other than most - but not all - of you have given up on outright secession and forming your own little Fiefdoms. Now you're content to attack it from within. That's why you guys love Snowden so much. You and the Far Left - a marriage made in heaven!

    Actually there are people from every political persuasion and no political persuasion as well as men women, whites and minorities, LE, attorneys, professors and plumbers and on and on, if you get my point, across America that feel strongly about their Bill of Rights and they are always going to raise hell if they are violated. Or if they think they've been violated. Or! If somebody just told them that they have been violated. Thats just the way americans feel about their civil liberties. In other words, the Federal Government is the one that has to err on the side of caution when it comes to our civil liberties, its a short succinct list and its not that much to ask, and, we won't have it any other way. Now then you're aggravating me by insisting that because of that we hate government and want to crown Edward Snowden.

    Dude, please stop equating those who disagree with illegal government spying to closet Confederates. You sound like an ass.

    Beating me up for something I didn't say. I believe he escaped to China. Russia was where he found asylum. The fact that it is secret information is irrelevant. Government classifies documents primarily to protect itself, not the classified information. I don't hate the government but I'm mightily disappointed in it. I'm certainly not a fan of Russia.

    And just which specific secrets did Snowden leak that pose a direct threat to the sovereignty of the United States?


    Oh, and btw, what 'guys' are you referring to?
