    Missouri report on militias, terrorists draws criticism

    The Associated Press

    Columbia, Mo. | A new document meant to help Missouri law enforcement agencies identify militia members or domestic terrorists has drawn criticism for some of the warning signs mentioned.

    The Feb. 20 report called "The Modern Militia Movement" mentions such red flags as political bumper stickers for third-party candidates, such as U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, who ran for president last year; talk of conspiracy theories, such as the plan for a superhighway linking Canada to Mexico; and possession of subversive literature.

    "It seems like they want to stifle political thought," said Roger Webb, president of the University of Missouri campus Libertarians. "There are a lot of third parties out there, and none of them express any violence. In fact, if you join the Libertarian Party, one of the things you sign in your membership application is that you don't support violence as a means to any ends."

    I don't know..... is it really all that much of a stretch to say that the tinfoil hatters and Ron Paul supporters are a bunch of fukcing whack jobs that are just as likely to join some kooky ass militia group? Pretty common knowledge I'd say.

    Present company excluded of course. :singing:
