Say what you want about Edward Snowden but in my eyes, he is a true American hero. It’s apparent that he has struck a nerve with millions of people throughout the planet testimony by the fact of his Twitter following in less then 24 hours.
If you have not seen the documentary about Mr Snowden entitled “Citizenfour” I highly recommend that you do. It is a riveting expose’ of what this Patriototic Hero went through to expose the injustices being perpetrated on the American people by the NSA.
I will leave you one of the greatest quotes of all time in regards to freedom: Digest it because it is what is happening in our country right now and has been since September 11th, 2001.
“Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens’ lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons.”
― Ron Paul
