As citizens of America we have the right to know what those in government are doing. It is our duty as the final check and balance to monitor all public servants whether it be Congress, the President, security agencies or our children's educators. We have a right to this information that was uncovered. It is our duty to police the police.
We have betrayed our country by shrugging these duties. We have betrayed our country by letting those who are ruining our country through the propaganda of national security and terrorism, destroy all that those before fought and died in order to have this great country. We are betraying our country in support of those who hid their crimes under the national security banner.
Mr. Snowden's bravery will be history's affirmation along with a few of us that live now.
