Snowden defends democracy

Obama's pathetic attempts to make cosmetic changes to the spying on US citizens and foreign nationals which Edward Snowden has brought to light will not convince anybody.

A democracy would give Snowden a congressional medal of honour and put the NSA traitors on trial. The US is not a democracy. Its spies flout the constitution every day of the week. And they justify themselves because everybody they spy on "might be a terrorist". How long will that childish lie work?

Our homegrown MI5 wouldn't dream of doing any such things of course. They would get the American spooks to do it for them!

"I would love to put a bullet in his head," one Pentagon official told BuzzFeed. The NSA leaker is enemy number one among those inside the oddly named "intelligence" world.

And let's not forget that their lies helped Bush and Blair commit mass murder in Iraq.

A party of the working class would give the people a hope of justice. Democracy has been described as a society in which "The People Distrust the State." Politicians are our servants not our masters.
