    The virginia news source recently discovered a Virginia state training manual on terrorism. Included are descriptions of terrorist groups and their motivations and activities.

    Look at the document for yourself by clicking here
    Welcome to the new America...

    The document lists domestic terror groups:

    The document goes on to discuss what terrorists are after...

    So, are you a terrorist?

    Are you beginning to see the danger we are in?

    I have---the administration won't admit who the real enemy is in the WOT. It's a war on Islam. Pretty hard to sell a war on a "religion".

    Do you understand what this is saying?

    If you are a property rights activist, a person who strongly believes in ownership of their private property, you are classified as a terrorist.

    Do you like to speak out about social problems, do you question the government? perhaps you point out things that portray the government in a negative light?

    You must be a terrorist!

    This document is horrifying in its broad implications, where is the raging response?

    Your government is using the WOT to crack down on legitimate dissent!

    Show me where a property right's activist has been jailed.

    Back up your claim. Not what something says...show me where it has happened.

    Sir, when the government puts something on paper, the next step is implementing it. If you saw a piece of legislation saying that gun owners will have their legally owned firearms forcefully taken from them, would you wait for the first case of illegal confiscation? Or... would you take action to throw out the bad piece of legislation before the power is abused?

    Do we still value the freedoms we hold so dearly enough to boldly speak up when they are abused?

    I don't need to back up my "claims." I am not "claiming" anything, I am showing you a government document classifying law abiding property rights activists as terrorists!!!

    I understand completely what you are saying.

    But I will give you another analogy.

    If a city passed a law that receiving a parking ticket could be punishable by death, I'm not going to worry about it until I see someone hung in town square.

    I will make sure I don't get a parking ticket and wait to see what happens to the first person who does.

    When the government uses that piece of paper to consider "terrorist" charges against someone who does one of those two things, then I will worry.

    One small problem with this whole thread. It is taken out of context.

    Terrorists are terrorists because of the methods they use to achieve their goals and NOT because they are activists or try to influence a political outcome. Someone is making mountains out of mole hills.

    For some reason this thread had been bugging me. I have finally figured out why: The original poster has taken the listed goals of some terrorists and tried to present them as the definition of the word 'terrorist'. Interestingly enough, the definition for the word is given right up front in the pamphlet. The original poster either did not read the entire thing himself, is being deliberately deceitful, or is illiterate...possibly all three.

    I do not appreciate being called deceitful, or illiterate.

    Read the manual, read underneath "Terrorist organizations" and what do you find?

    "Property rights activists"

    Why should we even be seeing our government do this? let alone accept it...

    If you cannot see this for what it is, I am sorry, and there is nothing else I can say.
