Well, not too shabby I suppose. Results could be worse..
Looks about the same as the last poll where 24% said it made them feel more 'secure' to know the NSA was snooping on them.
More secure from what? You are about FOUR TIMES more likely to get struck by lightning then be a victim in a terrorist attack. You are MUCH more likely to be murdered by an agent of the government than be a victim in a terrorist attack. Until you realize that there is an entire agenda behind all of this big government madness, and until you realize that neo-conservatives are actually neo-Trotskyite Communists educated by Leo Strauss of the University of Chicago in the 60s trained to emulate the values of our society in order to get political power, and until you realize that the left who is in power is no better than they are and that they are all a common enemy of freedom, liberty and the American people... well, you still have more to learn.

Next poll: Who thinks investigative journalist Michael Hastings was murdered by the FBI?
Incidentally he was investigating the NSA leaks and is said to have been in contact with a Wikileaks attorney hours before his car careened into a tree at nearly 90mph on a residential street in Los Angeles and exploded into flames.

I don't consider myself informed enough to weigh in on Snowden, but I do know that neither appeals to me: a terrorist attack nor being struck by lightning.

And your point is what?
The truth is that the government spying began long before 9/12/01. The even bigger truth is that you're much more likely to be killed by some trigger happy LE "hero" than by any "terrorist".

Here's something that really grinds my gears..
People in our government knowingly or unknowingly lie to us, and when they get caught in their lies they are so disconnected from reality that they forget to start telling the truth!!

such truths as War is Peace, Aerial assassinations of American citizens [4 so far] are legal, and the American Empire loves peace.

I wish Clark were in charge.

Ron Paul on Snowden - "My understanding is that espionage means giving secret or classified information to the enemy. Since Snowden shared information with the American people, his indictment for espionage could reveal (or confirm) that the US Government views you and me as the enemy."

Wow, more than 15% in the wrong direction. I am disappoint.

loonpt - The risk of being killed by a police officer is 8 times the risk of death due to a terrorist attack. Journalist Michael Hastings - one of many, including, of course, the Reuters journalists murdered in the tremendous breach of national security that could have been videotaped by any 10 year-old on the public street & ended up viral on the internet that's shown in Collateral Damage and cost Bradley Manning his freedom for life.
