The "Demand Clemency for Edward Snowden" petition includes the clip below, Paul calls on supporters to sign the petition in an attempt to bring Snowden home to the US safely before his temporary visa in Russia expires in July.

    On the heels of his son Rand Paul's lawsuit against the Obama nd the NSA seeking to stop its collection of phone metadata, Ron Paul states "Edward Snowden shocked the world when he exposed the NSA’s illegal and abusive spying program. Instead of applauding him for his bravery and patriotism, the U.S. government labels Snowden a traitor."

    Ron Paul doing something stupid? How shocking...

    Without Snowden, the NSA would have continued increasing their surveillance of everyone and everything. If you think that being watched is necessary for your safety, then Snowden was a bad an. If you think that the NSA and other agencies should respect the 4th amendment and the other constitutional protections, then Snowden is a hero.

    I think most people would rather be safe than be private. After all, only a bad person would care about being watched. Good people commit no crimes so their life should be an open book.

    Do you realize that if the police could search everyone's home from time to time, you would virtually eliminate all crime and terrorism. Who would dare operate a meth lab or a bomb factory if they could be searched at any time? What do you ever write in your letters that you would care if it was read for the greater good of the nation?

    Hilariously, constitutional scholars seem to disagree with you.

    Snowden deserves a bullet to the head, frankly. Even if you think he should've shard the information about phone metadata, he still shared so much more- stuff about spying on other nations. Why are people cool with that? Why do they ignore that?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    When you realize he took more information that he himself didn't understand. Then decided to share with other countries. Put others at risk. Despite his argument of wanting to show what the NSA was doing. Then you will realize like most others that are in Special Ops and other Clandestine agencies. How he is classified as a traitor.

    Well, seems Snowden was an enemy to his friend who he used to steal information from......causing his buddy's life to be totally destroyed too Since he discovered that Snowden his pal was using him and password to access more than what Snowden was assigned to.

    How would you feel if your buddy who you worked with. Set you up to take the fall with him?
