During an interview with FOX Business, former Rep. Ron Paul explained that he was concerned about the well-being of National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden.

“I’m worried about somebody in our government might kill him with a cruise missile or a drone missile,” Paul explained. “I mean we live in a bad time where American citizens don’t even have rights and that they can be killed, but the gentlemen is trying to tell the truth about what’s going on.”

Paul added that there were no signs of Snowden defecting to a foreign country, which meant that he was not really a threat.....

Where is your outrage

I'm not the emotional type. I look at things with a wide lens and a discerning eye. I'm more concerned with Benghazi, the IRS and what the traitor stole. All this spying crap that most of us have known about for years is a distraction. It has pushed Benghazi, Obamacare and the IRS on the back burner if not off of the stove completely.

It means exactly what it says.

I'm an American first I believe the ideals of America are far more important and greater than any allegiance to political dogma no matter what side it comes from.

I have no use for folks who don't place the Defense of this great Country above any other considerations.

Did Snowden break the law? Yes. Is he a traitor? I don’t know. I think it depends on intent. Right now it seems he intended to inform the American people of a serious and clandestine attack on their civil rights by the govt. I don’t think that’s treason.

And you agree with Putin on this subject.

Maybe you need to step back and come up with a better argument to support your point (assuming your actually have one).

Careful, because labels (in your case dumb ass) can follow you around for awhile ‘round these parts...

Put the shovel down, you're just digging yourself in deeper and making a bigger fool of yourself with each ridiculous, stupid assertion.

How do you like this, slick? So you don't care about the illegal invasion, amnesty, Behghazi, the IRS, Obamacare or a traitor stealing US military secrets. You love Obama, don't you?

Nobody except the government.

Your argument is self defeating. By your logic, if I chose to tell you my bank account number, the government has a right to it, even without a warrant.

Why would you tell me? I never stated the government has a right to your personal information. The fact is that most of it is available to anyone with a desire to get it. It is a result of the computer age, credit cards, mortgages, insurance and contracts. Have you checked out your residence on Google Earth? I could count the number of vehicles parked in my yard and the positions which allowed me to figure out when the photo was taken.

Typical histrionics from Ron Paul. Why would it make any difference how the government killed this guy? Is it worse if a drone was used?

If a missile hits in the middle of Hong Kong or some other major city then this administration will have alot more to worry about than this spygate. No I’m thinking something more suttle like poison in this case.

I don’t believe Snowden’s actions involved treason, either.

Many FReepers have decried that there is no one willing to stand-up and call-out the facts of this criminal administration operating from the White House that is intent on destroying the United States. Well, now we have one.

Jonathan Pollard definitely is a traitor. He spied for Israel. Some of the intelligence he stole ended up with the Peoples Republic of China. To me, in Pollard’s particular case, there is no doubt that the law was violated and treason occurred. Not so with Snowden.

Our government, it is claimed, now collects information on citizens to protect us. Bull****. Here are some facts: 98% of all terrorist acts over the past half-century were committed by Muslim men between the ages of 15 to 55.

We’re not screening for terrorists; BHO2 has ordered this from NSA for political reasons. He is using anti-terrorism as a smokescreen to destroy his political opponents and our liberties.

snowden handed over docs to the guardian. and even with that, it doesn’t seem like a problem for Obama. so, what do they care what he says. I don’t think they need to kill him.

If this country now considers spying on its on citizens, intimidation and threats to citizens that are of the wrong political party, or are Christians, or are conservatives. that practice intimidation of the press, intimidation of Supreme Court judges to blackmail them into voting a certain way, and other communistic activities that are prohibited by our constitution, to be legal and okay, then what makes it still a great country? It has turned from the once great land of liberty to a statist tyranny. It may still be called America, but it is not the land of the free anymore, unless we stand up and put a stop to this now and return America to what she once was.

We CAN defend this country without giving up our freedoms. Sealing the borders, profiling of groups that actually cause danger, intelligence gathering of FOREIGN threats, but NOT indiscriminate spying on citizens with no warrant,not using the IRS and DOJ and data gathered from the NSA to threaten and intimidate citizens and judges.

Like I said on another thread—all I need to know is who is vilifying Snowden. Did he break the law? Yes. Who gives a fuck. He stood up against an unconstitutional act perpetrated by the Clinton/Obama cabal.

With a few outliers on both sides, the democrats hate him.

Therefore I am on Snowden’s side. ALL I NEED TO KNOW!!

Absolutely agree with that. And they probably have used it on judges, legislators, etc. in addition to giving it to the IRS.


It wouldn’t surprise me if the NSA got “intel” which caused the IRS to target conservative groups. I wonder what the totalitarian “conservatives” would think then?
