My Thoughts On Edward Snowden

    While I am in support of the public being aware that our government is spying on us, I disagree with Edward Snowden’s actions. Although this has upset many Americans, I feel as though they need to ask themselves if giving up some of their privacy in order to increase national security is worth it. I believe it is. Citizens who are abiding by the laws and have nothing to hide should not by bothered by this as long as the motives of the national government are indeed for national security. I think Snowden is a coward for seeking asylum in Russia and justice should be served. It worries me about what other secrets he has exposed to Russian or even Chinese government authorities. If exposed to these governments, our national security is at risk.
