    FBI Attempts to Make 'Libertarians' the Poster Children for Domestic Extremism

    As the definition of a domestic extremist continues to expand to include activists for peace, animal rights, currency, natural health, liberty and other noble causes, the FBI is ready to make an example out of one group in particular: Libertarians.

    The FBI held a press conference Monday to "increase the visibility of the threat" that people who oppose taxes and regulations, government intrusions into their private property, and the desire for sound money allegedly pose to local authorities.

    Although the FBI vaguely attempts to label this group as "sometimes known as 'sovereign citizens'", the description sounds an awful lot like me, and millions of other liberty-minded people in America that don't associate with any group.

    They also sound like Ron Paul supporters.

    According to Reuters:

    Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday.

    These extremists, sometimes known as 'sovereign citizens,' believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference.

    The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard.

    Notice the resolute use of the word "extremists" but the vague description "sometimes known as sovereign citizens." Yet the description that these "extremists may refuse to pay taxes and defy government environmental regulations" sounds more like General Electric than average liberty activists who the FBI clearly seems hellbent on demonizing.

    These "sovereign citizens" are not libertarians.

    Interesting that you're cheerleading for criminals.

    Want Libertarianism?
    Move to Somalia.

    It's run ENTIRELY by enlightened self-interest.

    Sovereign Citizens kill cops and think themselves above the law.

    "Legal convictions of such extremists, mostly for white-collar crimes such as fraud, have increased from 10 in 2009 to 18 each in 2010 and 2011, FBI agents said."


    A whole 18! Folks we have a major problem.

    I think what really put them on the FBI watch list is the two incidents that involved shooting at police officers over minor traffic violations, which lead to the death of two cops.

    Notice the blanked statement
    And remember who was lately called terrorists. Returning Vets, Pro -Life people, second Amendment supporters, people who don't like the UN, Supporters of the Constitution etc

    Classic American ideas are being listed as terrorist ideas.... Seems the Commies have taken over, well...its really the Banking class who funded them the whole time.
