We Deplorables don't approve of either of those presidents. They are as bad as each other.

The book I want to read is the one Julian Assange will (hopefully live to) write.

We should not put up with the likes of Clapper and Brennan who lie to cover their misdeeds. Those that are career bureaucrats and not elected by anyone. And now people are lapping up what those two miscreants have to say like it is the word of God himself.

For the record, our government revoked Snowden's passport leaving him stranded in Russia.

I, for one, am thrilled that we learned how dirty our government is. They were lying under oath about what they were doing and not a damn thing happened to them.

And let's not forget Obama's list, for God's sake.

Change just means more of the same with different faces and names.

There is the 'When Google Met Wikileaks' book, which is quite good.

The US isn't a collective.

Maybe you'd prefer Cuba? Venezuela perhaps?

I'm agreeing with you. Snowden was a hero for exposing those warmongers. Don't you agree?



No surprise the Trump hating OP did a runner on her own topic.

That's just something you made up and have no proof. Conservatives aren't the ones backing big government. People like you are so its strange to see you on the correct side for once. Granted the dishonest comment about conservatives is to be expected.

He's got more balls than almost anyone. He's right and he's a hero.
