The real patriots aren't flag-waving hypocrites, but those who risk their livelihoods and lives fighting injustice.

Noted. Thank you, Cal. An excellent list of courageous patriots. I noticed that many were either in their 20's or early 30's, or seniors. The story about the 88 yr. old nun is remarkable! A very fitting article for the 4th.

Standing Ovation here for each and very one of them, plus the thousands more not named.

Some of these folks are commendable while others on your list are far from being patriots unless you have confused TRAITOR with patriot. manniung and Snowden two cases in point. Both violated several oaths so they are hardly truthful, honorable men. Both suffer from narcissism and a very exagerated sense of self importance that crap like this bolsters. Sad to see your post.

I agree 100% with John Gregoire. It is sad to see the post calling those who give OUR secrets ( not their's alone) without permission patriots. They are publicity seekers and traitors. If they wanted to protest there are other ways to do so that doesn't hurt this country and put other people at risk.

Very courageous patriots. I hope to see more activism as this united states falls into hell. Where are the people on the streets like we were in the 60's and 70's ? I am an armchair activist, I come here and vent , I sign petitions in what seems like all day long and send letters to the white house. One day is made disparaging remark about Bank of America and Google. I was not allowed on any activist sites for six months. Small Beans to what these heros have done for US_A.

Hardly truthful ... honorable ... suffers from narcissism ... very exaggerated sense of self-importance. OMG, for a moment thought we were talking about someone else.

Sorry ... my post was in response to John Gregoire, 5:25 am (forgot to mention that).

John and janice, you are certainly entitled to your opinions. Mine is that you are wrong, and while I am sure you are both good people, your attitudes are part of the huge problems in the United States today. Illegal and unconstitutional surveillance and blatant war crimes are no secrets of mine, thank you. If they are secrets of yours you ought to be asking yourself why.

John Gregoire. I believe it is mandatory for an American citizen to expose any crime of which they have knowledge, and notify the people or their justice agencies. As in both the cases, of which you spoke, the exposure was about ILLEGAL activities undertaken, without the approval of the people. Can you vindicate, in any way, why these illegalities should be protected from exposure?
