    Snowden’s actions were illegal. The surveillance programs he leaked — while highly controversial — apparently were not.
    The Patriot Act, passed in 2001 and reauthorized as recently as 2011, expanded on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Once again, the people — through their elected representatives — opted for a compromise that reduced personal privacy and governmental transparency but increased security. Many disagree with the law, but it was not haphazard. It includes checks and balances that involve every branch of the government.

    The people of our country are fine with giving up their freedoms in exchange for a perception of increased security. The framers of the Constitution foresaw our day and lamented our choices. We are no longer a free country; we are citizens in a cage built out of taxes by an increasingly fascist government. The current president is merely one of the evidences of how corrupt we have become as a people. We will all be like California and New York soon. Say goodbye to your personal freedoms and hello to Big Brother.

    Blaming this on Obama is like blaming the rain on having washed your car.

    Maybe the sainted GOP should have voted to cancel the surveillance, eh?
