    Snowden gave all but his life to expose lies and corruption. He is a patriot.

    Yes, he's absolutely a traitor, and I for one would like to see him extradited to the US to stand trial for his crimes.

    Yeah, that's why he had to run to Russia like a total bitch. If he was truly standing on principal he's come back and face his charges.

    The ones in the NSA spying on Americans are the traitors and those who continue to allow the NSA to spy on Americans are the traitors.All those elected officials and military personnel violated their oath and ****ted on the constitution. Not the man who told the world what the NSA is doing. If it wasn't for Snowden anyone who said your government is spying on you was seen as being part of the tin foil hat crowd. I understand why he fled to Russia and tried to flee to China.They are not going to turn him and have the force to keep our government from coercing them into turning in Snowden.This idea that he should come back and face the consequences if he is doing the right thing is ****en moronic.Ideally no one should pay for doing the right. The same government that will spy on you can easily do anything to bury you.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Why should someone be punished for doing the right thing? He would probably be in prison or worse right now if he stayed in the US.

    Seeing how the Constitution is the supreme law of the land that means any lower level laws that violate the Constitution are illegal and therefore no one has any obligation to obey such illegal laws.

    Yes and that's where a traitorous douchebag belongs.

    Laws criminalizing giving over sensitive national security secrets to foreign countries are illegal?
