When people think of terrorism today, they often think of radical Islamic groups committing atrocities against the populace. Although these are horrific events, governments are also capable of actions that equate to terrorism, and they usually have more resources available to do so. The United States has become an imperialistic force by bullying other countries and people and requiring submission to its policies. If Americans want to keep their liberties and see their country viewed more positively in the world, a change of policies is required.
This website promotes the ideas of anti-war, transparency in government, and liberty. These are concepts that the United States was founded upon, and it is up to the people to decide whether or not these principles will be cherished. Although this website and the related book are extremely critical of policies and actions set forth by the federal government, one should not mistake this for hatred towards America, but rather, it should be looked at as a warning and a way to change the direction of the country. Be engaged in political issues and do not be afraid to criticize the government. Patriots are not sheep that blindly follow the politicians' rod and staff to destruction.

from the United States Constitution

"Everyone's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's really an easy way: Stop participating in it."
"How can you have a war on terrorism when war itself is terrorism?"
"We’re under great threat because we occupy so many countries. We’re in 130 countries. We have 900 bases around the world. We’re going broke."
"When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."
(some argue that this quote should not be attributed to Thomas Jefferson)
