    the pragmatic citizens of the U.S. deem this as necessary and an acceptable trade-off for the intrusion of privacy.
    We don't even know the extent of the domestic spying -- and it apears with the revelations regarding the NSA listening in on Angela Merkel's private cell phone conversations, the Congressional Oversight Committees and The President aren't aware of what this trade off entails -- even though they continue to reassure us that everything is on the up-and-up and that there are very few abuses occurring and limited infringements of our 4th Amendment Rights.
    Snowden, who didn't want to live in a world where the NSA reigned, moved to a country where it is even worse.  
    It was either that or a lifetime of asshole-stretching sessions in a federal pokey AFTER being tortured a la Chelsea Manning at the hands of our beloved leaders.  Not much of a choice, yes?

    all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
