It Depends on Your Perspective

The Department if Homeland Security has identified right wing extremists as:

Napolitano points to a footnote in the document that defines “rightwing extremism” as “groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

“Rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat.”
There is great fear among the liberals that the "right wing extremists" are domestic terrorists.

This parable may help you see the ridiculousness of the above idea:

A man that rapes 3 dozen little girls would see someone who looks at pornography as simply a moderate. The rapist would see a monogamous man, who is faithful to his wife as an extremist.

The liberals have spent their time raping every line of the Constitution, but have the gall to brand law-abiding citizens as the terrorists.

I suppose it all depends on your perspective.

What does the law say?

Does the federal government have unlimited power? It seems so these days, but the law (the US Constitution) limits the power of the federal government. Any power that is not explicitly granted to the Federal government is SPECIFICALLY granted to the state or people.

At new bill (HR450) has been presented on the floor of congress to enforce this Constitutional mandate. A short paraphrase of the bill goes something like this:

Each bill passed by congress must have the line or phrase from the Constitution that specifically authorizes Congressional power in the area of the bill.

For more information see the WND article.

If this inspires you to do so, please contact your representative and encourage them to vote for this bill. From this link, type in your zip code near the top and find your congressional representatives and send them a message.

It's our country, let's not let the government snowball us with gargantuan stimulus bills that are unconstitutional and other surplus garbage.

In a related note, many states are now stepping up to their constitutionally mandates powers and suggesting that the federal government get its nose out of state business.
