    Well, there you go. Looks like I'm a terrorist. :spit:

    If studies like these begin to be taken seriously by the government, it looks to me that a 'legal' basis could be provided to arrest any right-wingers who don't support the government on suspicion of terrorism. I'm not a radical conspiracy kind of person, but that article scared me.

    Wait, when did being pro-state rights become an extreme viewpoint? I always assumed that was called being an American?

    Edit: I just realized that's a blog, so I'm not going to take it too seriously. Obviously, they are NOT targeting conservatives and libertarians in general, but are referring to 'far-right' views like white-power groups, anarchists,militia men, etc. Honestly, I doubt Homeland Security would prefer this to be news. Don't we want ANY fringe group to be monitored for our own protection?

    Yes, indeed. I was wondering that myself. Didn't we fight a war over the goverment trying to take away states' rights back in 1860? :yes:

    They mostly seemed to be talking about the McVeigh types, who we may see a resurgence of in response to the moderate-liberal swing of the majority of the voting public.

    Anyway, Rick, it seems to me that what goes around, comes around. You weren't at all bothered by domestic spying when you thought it was just targeting liberals. :D

    Lol.

    And thank God, too! Sorry, Lee fans. Chattel slavery is more objectionable than "larger government."

    Don't play coy and pretend to be shocked. They're not saying that everyone who believes such things are terrorists, but that those are issues that domestic terrorism is often committed in the name of. You know, like neo-nazi separatists who bomb federal buildings, black churches and abortion clinics,for example. So obviously those would be areas of interest if you're trying to keep an eye out for potential terrorism. Unless of course you're claiming that such acts actually reflect the sentiments of your average conservative. Just like environmental issues could be a hotbed for terrorism. It would be totally silly to suggest those concerned about the enviroment to be potential terrorists, but it would also be silly to deny that there have been etremist who've burned things in "defense" of animals and enviroment.

    I wouldn't mind allowing Texas to secede from the union and form it's own sovereign nation if the rest of the religious conservative nutjobs in the country all moved there.

    Ah, the fine fresh scent of using racial stereotypes to make a point.

    My deepest apologies. Maybe I just didn't understand the joke. Could you explain it?
