SayUncle: Potential Terrorist
The blogs are running amok and angry at the notion that the state of Alabama thinks libertarians are akin to terrorists. I take it as a compliment. Not the notion that I may be dangerous but the notion that my ideas are a threat to the state. That state needs to be challenged to keep it in line. Otherwise, it will run amok. And those ideas should come from the inside. AC has a good round up of it and notes:
So, it seems Libertarians are akin to terrorists now. The State of Alabama apparently believes that libertarianís point of view threatens the state.
Indeed, they do. But, the fact remains, they are just ideas.
But, and here’s the scary part, it’s not just the state of Alabama. The Phoenix FBI training manual tells would-be federales what to look for. Like:
Defenders of the U.S. Constitution against federal government and the UN
Groups of individuals engaging in para-military training
Those who make numerous references to the U.S. Constitution
Those who attempt to police the police
Now, I’m no expert but one of those things is not like the others and might raise valid concerns. The rest are personality quirks and things responsible citizens should do.
