Edward Snowden, Leaker Of NSA Documents, Is A Ron Paul Fan

Ron Paul speech 5 SC Edward Snowden, leaker of NSA documents, is a Ron Paul fan

Turns out Edward Snowden — the former CIA employee and NSA contractor who leaked documents revealing top-secret National Security Agency programs tracking terrorist communications — is a Paulbot.

The Washington Post reports: “According to campaign finance reports, Snowden made a $250 donation to Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign in March of that year.”

The revelation is of particular interest because one of the harshest critics of the NSA since the leaks began has been… Senator Rand Paul. Taken in isolation, the fact that Snowden supported the elder Paul’s presidential bid should not necessarily tar the senator. Politicians can’t be held responsible for all the actions of their supporters. But in addition to his campaign contributions, Snowden’s comments explaining his reasons for leaking are virtually indistinguishable from Senator Paul’s criticisms of the NSA program.

In an interview with the Post, Snowden goes on a Paulian rant about the dangers of the “surveillance state.”

He rails against “the dangerous truth behind the US policies that seek to develop secret, irresistible powers and concentrate them in the hands of an unaccountable few.”

    So now the liberal loon left has an attack against those who wish to live by our ruling document, the Constitution.
    Just how does the 4th Amendment fit within this overreaching power grab by our government?
    Obviously our government has been keeping an eye on the public for some time now. This brings the question how did they miss the evidence that the Boston Marathon would be the subject of a terrorist attack?
    The gubermint must be more interested in those who want us to return to a smaller and controlled gubermint. That is they'll keep an eye on the Patriot that has a garden, is a veteran and keeps more than a weeks supply of groceries instead of the guy who flew to a foreign country and lives on welfare. Oh and just happened to build bombs that killed 3 and injured hundreds in Boston.

      You know Seeks even back in the old west according to movies and books I read that indians sent smoke signals to inform tribes that the long knives were on there way to shaft the indians.Now if one tribe knew this and didn't warn the others ten that to me would be neglect for not warning them.

        Through all this, two things keep coming to mind. Waco, TX and Ruby Ridge.
        The government had been 'monitoring' the group in Waco and DECIDED that they were a threat. So much so they felt the need to kill them all. Same with Ruby Ridge.
        As it was said, you may believe your actions to be innocuous, doesn't make them so in the mind of a government official.
        What is the difference of that agent knocking on your door for info or invading your private emails?
