Liberty is hunted around the globe: What Snowden taught us about American freedom

Friday, July 12, 2013

Earlier this month, as Americans celebrated our Independence Day holiday, the true scope of American independence became visible.

The American people fully recognize the threat that the U.S. security state poses to American liberty; according to a national Quinnipiac Poll released this week, 55% of Americans consider Edward Snowden a whistleblower, not a traitor.

Yet who will protect this whistleblower, deemed a traitor by Pennsylvania Avenue, and a hero by most Americans?
