Our lawmakers are the real traitors

Every day new revelations come out about how big a dragnet our government has used in gathering private information from, on, or about American citizens; as well as how our government has violated not only our trust but our constitutional rights, and I for one am angry. I believe Americans are in for even more shocks as the Guardian publishes more information given to them by Edward Snowden, and there is going to be hell to pay.

Some of our elected representatives are calling Mr. Snowden a traitor, but they have that backward. Familiarity breeds corruption, and now we know why our elected representatives refuse to institute term limits. Every single one of them who knew the government was breaking the law and violating our constitutional rights in gathering this information is a traitor and should be not just impeached but thrown out of office and into jail to pay for their crime.

The old saying, “absolute power corrupts, absolutely” has never been more true.
