Edward Snowden and The Real Traitors
By Perry Willis

Please take action to defend Edward Snowden. Send Congress a letter using our “You did wrong” campaign.

If you doubt it will help, please read “Six reasons you should write to Congress.”

Our hardwired “You did wrong” message says...

I deny my consent to “government” criminality.

You may copy or edit these additional comments...

You are committing a crime, when you make it a crime to expose a crime.

This is exactly what you are doing in the case of Edward Snowden.

Edward Snowden exposed criminal “government” actions for which you are personally responsible as my supposed representative. You must take immediate action to reverse these crimes. You must . . .

— Repeal the Patriot Act

— End the NSA’s warrantless surveillance

— Ask President Obama to pardon Edward Snowden

Please empower Edward Snowden to return home and give him the hero’s welcome he so richly deserves.

To avoid confusion, please understand . . .

The NSA isn’t violating just the Fourth Amendment, it’s violating basic human rights that existed before the Constitution was even drafted — pre-Constitutional rights. But INSTEAD of condemning these abuses . . .

Many politicians and pundits are calling Snowden a traitor and even advocating his execution! This in an incitement to murder! And it will be just as much a murder if you coat it in a veneer of due process.

Snowden is not the traitor. Those in Congress who permitted these crimes are the traitors.

Do you think this is an “anti-government” rant? Far from it. I’m PRO-government. But what Congress is doing isn’t “governing.” It’s the opposite of that. It’s pure criminality.

I deny consent!

Please issue a press release making a public commitment to support the three things I asked for above . . .

— Repeal the Patriot Act

— End the NSA’s warrantless surveillance

— Ask President Obama to pardon Edward Snowden
