#1 he can live without "persecution from the empire,"

Which leaves the rest of us here to sort it out with Champ and the regime. Nicely done Eddie, you little pric*.

Wherever you decide to go, please take your feckless father along with you.

#2 Well, it doesn't look like happy happy for Snowden.

The outcome should be apparent soon. How would YOU like to be Snowden? It must be about like the rim of Hell.

You want to be his kind of role model patriot hero? He is looking down a deep black hole and even if he does find a place that will take him...what has he got to look forward to? And after he gets there? And then who can he trust? And if we know where he is does it matter if he puts a strong lock on his door? yeah?

#3 I think Snowden is going to have a heck of a shock. Here he expected to be welcomed by our enemies with open arms and treated like a celebrity.
Instead he's going to be regulated to some sh*thole in South America where he can live out his life in imagined fear that some U.S. agent will add something interesting to his food.

#4 So let's say he goes to Venezuela.

Three months pass.

What's he going to do for money?

He can continue to release secrets, and perhaps he'll pick up cash that way. What's that say about his 'motivation'?

If he doesn't take cash for secrets, how's he going to live? It's not like the Venezuelan intel service is going to employ him as a systems administrator.

#5 Snowden hasn't realized yet that nobody's going to hire him for anything now. A traitor can never be trusted again - with anything.
