Well about a month and a half ago I as well as my friends thought I was being watched for about 3 days. There was a civilian tagged vehicle in my parking lot at my shop that had a man in it in plain clothes. This vehicle would be in my lot till I left and would move around the lot through out the day. Some people thought I was kind of crazy for thinking I was being watched but then the truth came out yesterday.
Yesterday about an hour after I opened my shop the OSBI or Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation came and payed me a visit. The guy showed me his credentials and then said he needed to ask me some questions.
1. What are your political views?
2. What is your view on our government?
3. Are you anti-government?
4. What are your views on the military?
5. What do you think of other races?
6. Do you consider yourself a patriot?
With these questions there were several sub-questions but you get the point. I answered all of them with my true feelings on the subject. Turns out that back in the end of October I was turned in by some one for my radical views of what needs to be done to fix our government.
I told the agent that I do feel change is needed. I feel that those who have done this to our country need to be held accountable. I want them arrested and put on trial for their crimes. I am not racist at all. I support our military. I am a true patriot wanting us to go back to the original form of the constitution and start from there of course with the needed amendments to womens rights and black rights to stay in place. I want the corruption and greed taken out of the government. I want anyone to be able to run for office if they don't have a criminal history. I want less government involement in our lives.
So I guess my views are now subject to investigation. I find humor in it knowing that even as I write this and post it they will be reading it. Guess its a good thing that I don't do anything illegal knowing now that that they have been watching everything I have done for the last couple of months.
Now what do ya'll think of that.
Edit to provide a more descriptive title.

Isn't the government supposed to be a voice of the people for the people?
I would think that with this premise that I have the right to voice my opinion of a currently tyranical government without having to fear being investigated.
How can a government of the people for the people be intimidated enough by one of the people to begin investigating them with no cause? I'm just one person a vocal one at that but still just one person.

I was trying to figure out why would they be investigating you? So I thought maybe you posted some things here at ATS that got them suspicious. Lets take a look at some of the threads you have posted in the past that may have raised a redflag.
Hong Kong reports bird flu outbreak Nope!
New regulation eases ban on guns in national parks Nope!
Indonesian AIDS patients face microchip monitoring Nope!
Grassy knoll witnesses think conspiracy. NEW News. Nope!
US-bound private planes and Terrorism Nope!
OUTSOURCING USA: Austal shares surge on $1.6 bln US Navy contract Nope!
Somali Islamists seize port as insurgency gains Nope!
North Korea: No sample-taking at nuclear site Nope!
German parliament moves to increase police powers Nope!
Iran successfully test fired a new missile Monday Nope!
Dr Pepper to deliver on its free-soda promise YES!
That's it it’s your anti Soda defamation they are really hot on the soft drinks critics ever since they passed the new home land security bills. I suspect Pepsi and Coca-Cola will be after you next I suggest get a new cell phone, shave your head, change your name and move to Zimbabwe.
I've often wondered if they monitored sites like this for possible information on anti-government activilties.

1. the government is the reason why you live so comfortably. So when you COMPLAIN about them you are not observing reality.
2. WHo needs to be held acountable for WHAT? How are BUsh or clinton or any of their cabinet members at fault for anything? no one can explain this coz it makes no sense.
THink about you...YOU HAVE A BUSINESS. You are safe. you go to sleep in a cozy bed. you get to work.
3. you are saying that you are not appreciating what they are doing.
I think that people, like you, forget that planet earth is not a UTOPIA....meaning that there is lots of crazy things out there.. the government DOES protect you and your loved ones from these crazy things.
and when you dont show your appreciation for them..it bothers me.
its not about republic or democrat or what not..its about showing respect.
coz those people up there WORKED hard to get up there.
that is WHY THEY are up there.

Dude, they're just doing their job: checking you to make sure you're not a nutjob. If they thought you were a nutjob, they would have taken the investigation further, and probably hauled you off for a better inspection.
It sucks that privacy is invaded like that, but they wouldn't have to investigate if there wasn't any crackpots about.
There is probably a (post 9/11) policy in place from higher up, that dictates they have to investigate all claims, no matter how trivial they may seem.
