It's up to each and every one of US now to make a difference #Snowden #NSA

Despite what some people are saying Snowden did NOT sell out.

He could of sold his secrets for an absolute FORTUNE.

He didn't.

He put his life absolutely at risk, turned it upside down when he was earning $200k a year, in order to follow his MORAL PRINCIPLES and tell the TRUTH about what the government is doing.

There have been half a dozen previous whistle blowers on the NSA's mass surveillance programs - Binney & Drake to name but two.

None made a difference like Snowden.

Snowden told the truth at great personal risk and to his own great detriment in the hope that the American public might wake up to what is happening to their country.

We will see if his sacrifice was worthwhile.

It's up to YOU now to help make that difference.
Get out there and inform some more people, persuade them to also do things to help save their country.
I am trying to do my bit.

See my recent blogposts for ammunition.

Nothing will change unless each and every one of us, help make it change.
If every one of us persuaded 5 more people, we would soon have the numbers to make that difference.
Get out there and inform and persuade some more people.

Probably the best practical way to help right now is to get

your work mates & your friends to sign the WH petition to "Pardon Edward Snowdon".

Another 40k signatories are required to get past the thresh hold of 100k.

I know nothing tangible will come of it.
But it will demonstrate the level of support and embolden more people.

I would like to see a million signatories on it.
That would make the statists start to worry.

The only way things will change is if more people are persuaded.
This is a practical way of making a start on that.

The petition :-

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."
