Mr. Snowden, As a veteran of the U.S. Navy let me thank you with all my heart for making a real sacrifice for true liberty and freedom in your home nation. A sacrifice that was so great it required you to leave it. I can’t imagine the struggles you have faced and will face — but please stay strong and stay safe. Despite what Mr. Obama may wish us to believe I’d like to quote a much better President on the American government’s hypocrisy… “I should prefer emigrating to some other country where they make no pretense of loving liberty – to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, without the base alloy of hypocrisy.” ~ Abraham Lincoln
