I know that conservatives may leap in to insult, but many people, including me, consider him a hero.

He speaks very well, so I'll be curious to see if he writes well, too.

Why would you say that.

Snowden exposed the war mongering Obama and Joe Biden for the liars they are. I agree. He is a hero for exposing Obama and Biden's extensive spying of Americans.

Oh, so you think the surveillance began under Obama? Have you forgotten all about Bush?

According to Snowden it was hugely ramped up by the war mongering Obama/Biden. Snowden pointed his finger straight at them.



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

Thanks for heads up, OP. Another good book for those interested is No Place to Hide by Glenn Greenwald. He's a lawyer and journalist, and was Snowden's close confidante who guided him through the rocky shoals.

I consider him a traitor for divulging extremely damaging information concerning the U.S. From a political perspective, the left should hate him more since he exposed all the illegal spying that was going on during the Obama-Biden administration.

He is a traitor and needs to be shot on sight.

On March 15, 2013—three days after what he later called his "breaking point" of "seeing the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, directly lie under oath to Congress"—Snowden quit his job at Dell.

where have I hear that Clapper name over the last couple of years

I'd volunteer to pull the switch on the electric chair myself. The man is a disgrace who stole information and then fled to hostile territories (you know the Russians have access to all of that information, which Snowden took with him, even if Snowden doesn't realize it), exposing many lives to risk in the process.

Erase Lincoln and Teddy from Mt. Rushmore and replace them with Ed and Julian.
