You can think for yourself and say it on the internet.
Actually, you can classify each of those (save for Ted Kaczynski) as Militias, well Militias as they are classified by ATS Members.
Ted, was a nutcase singularly, and his manifesto could very well be copied and presented as the TEA party platform.
1. The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race.
They have greatly increased the life-expectancy of those of us who live in "advanced" countries, but they have destabilized society, have made life unfulfilling, have subjected human beings to indignities, have led to widespread psychological suffering (in the Third World to physical suffering as well) and have inflicted severe damage on the natural world. The continued development of technology will worsen the situation.
2. The industrial-technological system may survive or it may break down. If it survives, it MAY eventually achieve a low level of physical and psychological suffering, but only after passing through a long and very painful period of adjustment and only at the cost of permanently reducing human beings and many other living organisms to engineered products and mere cogs in the social machine.
3. If the system breaks down the consequences will still be very painful. But the bigger the system grows the more disastrous the results of its breakdown will be, so if it is to break down it had best break down sooner rather than later.
. We therefore advocate a revolution against the industrial system. This revolution may or may not make use of violence: it may be sudden or it may be a relatively gradual process spanning a few decades. We can't predict any of that. But we do outline in a very general way the measures that those who hate the industrial system should take in order to prepare the way for a revolution against that form of society. This is not to be a POLITICAL revolution.
As the Tea Party movement continues to drum up support, we believe it is important to provide ongoing education and support to individuals interested in taking part in the movement. This includes sharing current national news on Tea Party activities, as well as insights into events and policies which will shape the direction of our government and economy. We believe everyone interested in promoting the ideals of pro-freedom, pro-individual government should stay informed of national and local events and when possible learn how to clearly articulate the arguments supporting these ideals.

But on the subject, You know you are a terrorist when.....
You plan to kill your fellow Americans, you want a violent revolution, you want to destroy the Government, rip up the Constitution and want to instill a Conservative/Fascist government that would make Hitler's Nazi Germany look like a PTA Assembly.
And the Far Left want one filled with a tyrannical nanny state where we must adhere to the almighty Government for our marching orders....
So it is okay for 'the people' to hold beliefs and convictions but politicians are to not be human and be robots for 'the people'?
So I ask then, what do you think of the principles and ideas on a whole, of say Ron Paul? Who would you champion as someone most politicians should model themselves after? How can you expect people to drop all their convictions and become neutral once elected? They will still hold those convictions....
