NSA Whistle Blower Edward Snowden Fears We Will Do Nothing About What He Exposed.

I was impressed with Edward Snowden after I watched this interview. 10:48 on is what I consider the most important part when he talks about what he sees this leading to at some point in the future.  His greatest fear is not for his personal safety, it is that “…..people won’t be willing to take the risks necessary to stand up and fight to change things to force their representatives to actually take a stand in their interest…..if they don’t….. the flip of a switch…..it will be turnkey tyranny.”

Who do you trust, the guy who controls the Government that has power over everything you do, or the guy who pulled back the curtain  allowing us to see what the all powerful OZ is up to?

Mr. President, it all depends on what your definition of due process and the rule of law is. These words mean something different to you than they do to me. If words are not specifically defined, we will talk past each other.

Edward Snowden is taking a huge risk to reveal the truth, can’t we take the baton from him and beat our representatives over the head with it?

Here is an after thought, who is more courageous Jason Collins for coming out about his sexual orientation, or Edward Snowden for what he brought out into the open? When you know the president, the media, and the political elite will support you’re position, how much courage does it take, if any. When you know you will be disparaged and possibly destroyed by these same people when you uncover what they are up to, that’s shows real courage.
