Snowden: The truth hurts...

Is Snowden a "traitor", or just a whistle-blower, a man who courageously did the right thing, in spite of the cost to him personally?

Regardless of our opinions, Snowden has tipped the hand of our masters. Not only do they not respect our "right" to privacy, they have no intention whatsoever of ever doing so.

Try to remember this the next time you hear people singing about "the land of the free". It just isn't true anymore, and sadly, hasn't been for quite a few years now.

And while we're at it, what are your feelings when they get to the line "the home of the brave"?

I, for one, stay silent these days while others sing the old patriotic hymn. It would be hypocritical of me to stand there saying words that are no longer true.

If you still believe these words are true, please comment, let me know why you think so.

A final thought: What if we all stopped singing along?
