quote: I'm going to show the people of Gotham that the city doesn't belong to the criminals and the corrupt. People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy. I can't do this as Bruce Wayne. A man is just flesh and blood and can be ignored or destroyed. But as a symbol... as a symbol, I can be incorruptible, everlasting.
quote: Revealing intelligence to our enemies that will only make it harder for us to know what they're doing though is stupid, dangerous, and wrong.
quote: What I don't understand about this guy is why didn't he just stay anonymous? He could have leaked the information anonymously and still be fighting the system from within.Or he could have leaked the information and quit if working for the NSA bothered his conscience that much.But maybe he wanted to be a hero?

quote: Please tell me how giving the Chinese that information was helping to protect me as a citizen from my Government? Answer that, and I'll shut up.
quote: What I do know, is that the US government trampling on the liberty of individuals worldwide is something I want shared with everyone, because only the severe and punishing backlash of an angry citizenry will stop it.
quote: The NSA and US Government violates your Constitutionally guaranteed rights
quote: You allegiance should be to you country and it's constitution, NOT tot he government.
quote: Not debating whether what the NSA is doing is right or wrong but saying they violated my Constitutional guarantees is nonsense.
quote: and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized
quote: Does that mean what's been done by the NSA is perfectly fine and well ? That it meets some Constitutional muster ?
quote: As for the harm that's done ... do you really believe that this power, left unchecked, won't be abused by some future administration?
quote: We have possessed nukes for almost 70 years why haven't they been abused? You have a knife in your kitchen left unchecked how can we trust you won't stab someone
quote: Sorry that's a nonsense argument and again lacks an understanding of where US Government power is derived.

quote: The only violations of my Constitutional rights i have seen is Colorado's recent guns laws that directly infringe on my 2nd amendment rights, laws that are obviously illegal. Where is the outrage for that?
quote: Do you also support any person owning a gun. ie felons or the mentally ill? It is their right after all, right?
quote: Full disclosure, I'm a gun owner and licensed for concealed carry.
quote: What disturbs me is that they keep chipping away at that right. We've seemed to lose the importance of that word - right - in modern society.
quote: What's happening in Colorado is the worst kind of anti-gun fascism. This representative Fields is an out of control Liberal wacko with an anti-Constitutional agenda, and must be stopped.
quote: As for your Gun, what part of the constitution did they violate? Have they taken away all your guns? Or just restricted you from some (sorry not up on this new CO law)
quote: So Show me were in the constitution it says what type of gun you can carry or even that it says you can carry any type?
quote: Unless there's some specific clause given in the Constitution that allows the Govt to restrict the item, or it can logically be derived from some clause, then the Govt has no legal ability to make any restriction. The Constitution does not grant rights !!!
