I am deeply saddened by the Obama Administration, or the regime, if you listen to most of the people I know. Most of all, I dislike them for how they have changed me. I am law abiding to a fault. Since childhood I have always done the right thing. I tithe 10% and then I give a percentage of time to whatever the cause. I have never had as much as a parking ticket. I respect authority and have helped police sometimes when it actually endangered me. However, somewhere between the multitude of Executive Orders designed to circumvent Congress, the encouragement of quantittative easing, continued bank bail-outs, the Solyndra mess, Fast and Furious, Bengazi, the pushing through of Obamacare which cannot possibly be Constitutional, the NSA monitoring of America, the use of drones to monitor the domestic US, and the failure to control federal spending, and the IRS scandal, I lost my way. The regime now intends to give citizenship to illegals, and will find some way to dodge a permanent fence on the US Southern border. They also are working to take guns away from Americans, Constitution be damned !
When Edward Snowden, a thirty year old who probably doesn't even recollect the wonderful country I grew up in, tossed his livelihood, his family, his reputation, his freedom and quite possibly his life, to speak out and tell the rest of mainstream America, what those of us paying attention, already knew, then I couldn't see him as a traitor. No matter how many times the spineless members of Congress, and Jay Carney call him a traitor to the United States, most of us just don't see it. If he were a traitor to America, then he would certainly have a lot of company. Congress has failed to rein in an administration that routinely ignores the Constitution, as if it is a quaint historic document. Many of them have folded like lawn chairs when pressured by the Obama regime. And why not ? The regime likely monitors all their phone calls and e-mails. They probably know a lot of dirt.
Edward Snowden is not a traitor. A traitor sells secrets of his country for profit of some kind. Snowden lost everything trying to bring evidence of a police state to the American people. The regime has said that Snowden has committed espionage by bringing information enemies of the United States. He brought KNOWN information to the American people. So, are the American people an enemy of the present regime ? I can't say I would ever be so courageous. I hope that Snowden finds a country that will give him asylum and that when this regime is out and gone, that Snowden can come back as a member of Congress ! That is, if the United States survives all the changes the Obama Regime has implemented.
