Let me expose you to a discussion we had on my social site about this topic. People can write articles and then ask questions that we respond to. One of those articles was titled: Will the Obama Nightmare put an end to The American Dream?

Commenter 1 said: America was designed to defend against obama 200 years ago – all we have to do is cling to the truths that are already there.
Commenter 2 said: It is imperitive that we do something to disrupt his plans!
Commenter 3 said: Osama Bin laden, even so , saying the next attack will come from within, and with what is happening to our rights, right now, makes his agenda seem more predictable. it is so funny how we conservatives, can see this but these liberals, are still so blinded.
Commenter 4 said: If that is what I have to do then so be it!!! I have been in combat before, and I am not afraid to go through it again. I was in the Army from 2002-2008, did three tours to Iraq, invasion ’02-’03, Sadr City ’05-’06, and Arab Jabour ’07-’08.
Commenter 5, Judy (me) responded back by saying: Good for you. We do appreciate your service, I hope it doesn’t come to needing you though.
Commenter 4 responded back: I appreciate whatever support is given to us troops. Thank you. I hope not too. However, I am concerned with the fact that the DoD has recently classified those of us who have served, and believe in Christ as “Homegrown Terrorist”.
Judy: What? Homegrown Terrorists? Why?
Commenter 4 responded back with: If you check it out on the internet, the DoD started looking at us OIF/OEF Veterans who are strong in our faith as possibly going to extremes against the current admin.
So I did check it out on the Internet and was shocked. It’s true! Can you believe that this administration really does see our return servicemen and women as a possible “homegrown terrorist” threat because they are Christian and are thus, right-wing fanatics? There is nothing about being Christian that makes a person a right-wing fanatic and a threat to this nation.
What is ridiculous is thinking these brave people, those who offered their lives for this country, are being categorized with those who bombed the Trade Center on 9/11 and McVey (who bombed the Federal Building in Oklahoma City)?
This is why I decided to do a report and tell you what our government thinks of those who served, those who are Conservatives, and those who belong to the TEA Party.
WorldNetDaily.com did an exclusive report on April 12, 2009 about this subject: A newly unclassified Department of Homeland Security report warns against the possibility of violence by unnamed “right-wing extremists” concerned about illegal immigration, increasing federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the loss of U.S. sovereignty and singles out returning war veterans as particular threats.
The report, titled “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” dated April 7, states that “threats from white supremacist and violent anti-government groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts.” <<MORE>>

Homeland Security Classifies Returning US Veterans as Potential . Apr 14, 2009 … The suguestion that our own returning veterans be classified and potential…. Now I am a terrorist?!? I don’t have exact statistics on hand but I would …. TRUE THAT BROTHER! 82nd Airborne SAPPER OEF 02′ OIF 03-04′ …
This is what the Department of Homeland Security thinks about our military men and women who are overseas fighting on our behalf:
the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks
That is unforgivable. To suggest that some of our troops will come home and form or join terrorist groups is beyond reprehensible. And why suddenly is the Department of Homeland Security suddenly using the “T” word again when talking about our troops when they refuse to call the actual terrorists what they are?
The report continues:
Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists,” it says. “DHS/I&A is concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities.
http://papundits.wordpress.com/2010/03/26/domestic-terror-threat/ In April, 2009, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), headed by Secretary Janet Napolitano, sent out a secret 10 page report to law- enforcement agencies nation wide warning about a potential homegrown terrorist threat from rightwing extremists. The report and other statements by the DHS describe these groups as “anti-government, hate-oriented, paranoid, dangerous, and violent”.
The DHS has placed these extremists on the same threat level as the 9/11 terrorists. They espouse radical policies on gun control, abortion, illegal aliens, and nationalizing the economy. The movements can be broadly divided into two categories, those primarily based on a particular religious doctrine, and those mainly anti-federal government, rejecting central authority in favor of state or local authority.
These dangerous individuals number in the millions. There is nothing secretive about their meeting places. They usually gather on weekends and sometimes Wednesday evenings in buildings they call “churches” or “synagogues” and they call themselves “Christians” or “Jews”. Some assemblages are small, while others are called “mega-churches”. Many are American military veterans who belong to militias, and we all remember Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing. Secretary Napolitano is right to have DHS monitor these groups. Now doesn’t that make you feel safer?
How do you feel now about our wonderful administration? This was so shocking to me that I hardly believed it.
Since when is it anti-American to be Christian or Jew or because we espouse such radical views on gun control, abortion, illegal aliens, and nationalizing the economy? Yes, there are millions of us who feel this way. And yes, the Founding Fathers felt this way also; thus, the Constitution.
When is it anti-American to be against abortion that takes the life of the unborn? Somebody needs to give them a voice and protect their rights to live! The choice a woman has over her body ends the minute she allows herself to become pregnant (and considering special situations)!
It is at that point that there are bodies of two people to consider, not only hers. Worshiping the god of lust and pleasure does not allow women to discard the product of that lifestyle. It is like times in the Bible where people were sacrificed to the gods in order to have their approval and protection.
When is it anti-American in wanting to defend our nation against anyone, even our President, from taking down our country? It is anti-American to ignore the threats against this nation and do nothing.
I am NOT suggesting that people need to rebel against our current administration unless the President or any of his administration tries to usurp control; the Constitution has made provisions for such a situation should it happen.
It would NOT be anti-American to fight a government that tries to usurp power and control of this nation, as established by the Constitution. In fact, doing so is very much American. For example, read the except below from the Declaration of Independence.
We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
Please use the link Declaration of Independence and read the Declaration yourself. Then please use the link at the end and sign the petition to recommit to the Declaration of Independence for 2010. You never know, we may again be required to establish a new Constitution under the ConCon, which is also a report I’m working on, and perhaps suffer a new revolution. Time will tell for sure.
As always, I welcome anything you have to say. If you want to tell me I’m full of BS, that will be fine as well.
