If I'm honest (as I tend to be) you sound as if you have a reason to be fearful or paranoid. That is troubling, there is nothing wrong with being affiliated with this website, it's a great alternative news source that I'd recommend to anyone.
Let me put it this way, I don't have anything to worry about by being a member of ATS or my comments within it. Maybe you do?

A light hearted ...yet dark comment.
If the FBI came for you...they would get you.
If the CIA came for you...they would get you.
The tactics could be radically different.edit on 21-12-2011 by TDawgRex because: Stupid Keyboard

little less known fact CIA has no jurisdiction in the USA, can only make arrest out side of the USA, this does not mean they can not spy on you, get Intel on you, or know who you are.

Oh geez. Well first I'd not say anything that would prompt such a situation...
But if they did show up I'd invite them in for coffee, cooperate and go if asked to go.
The law is the law, whether you like it or not,
and if you're that fed up with the state of things I'd encourage you to visit another country if things are so bad for you here (assuming you're in the US). Or try to change things through legal means.
But if you suspect someone's going to show up to your door and you're ready to "fight to the end", then maybe a visit should be in order. Maybe there's another issue that needs to be addressed.
So far some responses are... Disturbing...
who's dreaming now? the link to CIA www.cia.gov... any more questions?
6. Does the CIA spy on Americans? Does it keep a file on you?
By law, the CIA is specifically prohibited from collecting foreign intelligence concerning the domestic activities of US citizens. Its mission is to collect information related to foreign intelligence and foreign counterintelligence. By direction of the president in Executive Order 12333 of 1981 and in accordance with procedures approved by the Attorney General, the CIA is restricted in the collection of intelligence information directed against US citizens. Collection is allowed only for an authorized intelligence purpose; for example, if there is a reason to believe that an individual is involved in espionage or international terrorist activities. The CIA's procedures require senior approval for any such collection that is allowed, and, depending on the collection technique employed, the sanction of the Director of National Intelligence and Attorney General may be required. These restrictions on the CIA have been in effect since the 1970s.
