"Governments only derive their powers from the consent of the governed to secure rights." Please do not omit the word "just." Governments only derive JUST powers from the consent of the governed. The governed to do not have the authority to grant unjust powers i.e. the majority may not deprive the minority of there natural rights. That would be unjust and there illicit vis-a-vis the natural law.

Whether or not he is guilty depends on whether or not the NSA program passes 4th amendment muster. Snowden has the duty to protect and defend the Constitution, that is the bottom line of the job. He would also run afoul of Federal Statute by violating a citizens Constitution rights. The NSA will think twice before they try this guy, because if he can show probable cause that this program was unconstitutional (Eric Holder has already asked a district court to keep secret a decision of this nature) the subpoena power of the defense could cause the NSA to cut their loses.

Securing our unalienable rights is the purpose for which citizens have an obligation to fund the government. Seizing the property of citizens for purposes other than this violates our unalienable right to own property. Government can only derive it's "JUST" power from the consent of the governed. Governments do not now, nor have they ever had authority to exercise unjust power. Theft cannot be rationalized by a majority vote. This country has twice fought a civil war over this issue. Will it take a third to get this idea through your thick skull?
