The one document that could bring the Green Party and Ron Paul together....

So, Missouri sent out a "Modern Militia Movement" profile (I know they say it isnt a profile, but seriously, it is)....

Many of us have read the articles - where it lists things that "Domestic Terrorists" could be involved in....

Its a hoot - really. But lets get one thing straight, this profile DOES NOT describe MILITIAS as the CONSTITUTION describes Militias. The 1st 10 Amendments address rights of INDIVIDUAL persons - meaning that the Founding Fathers call a "militia" any able bodied MALE (and certain really cool chicks ;) Therefore, what this Missouri Rag calls MILITIA is INACCURATE and should be called PARAMILITARY GROUP because that is what it is describing....

Ok, so now that we have that straight, lets proceed. Here is ACTUAL DOCUMENT Read it for yourself and dont trust what news articles say, or me for that matter.

So, if you can nod your head with anything below, the State of Missouri could and may already have, classified you as a "Domestic Terrorist"....

1 - Christian
2 - White Supremacist
3 - Sovereign Citizen
4 - Anti- Abortion
5 - Hate the IRS and believe they have no power to collect taxes
6 - Anti-Immigration (This one pisses me off....People who believe there should be a fence and we should enforce the laws of our Country are NOT ANTI-Immigration - we are ANTI-ILLEGAL-Immigration. Learn the difference Washington.)

We know how to use guns, practice using our guns, are into Survival, Shortwave Radio and try to get people to join with us.

Some of us talk about our beliefs and some of us dont (really, Govt? This was the best you could do?)

We fly different flags - Dont Tread on Me, Molon Labe....

If you are registered to a party other than the big 2, vote that way, display a sticker or anything....

If you have forwarded a cartoon that displayed the Government in a not so flattering light or made fun of a political person or even put a political bumper sticker on your car, you could be a DT.

Ok - so now you have the list....I bet just about EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THIS COUNTRY can check at least one thing off this list....

It would be easier to check the things I AM NOT on this list... Skinhead and Shortwave Radio....

I could shorten this list down to 2 lines:

1 - If you are tired of being screwed by the Government, you might be a DT.
2 - If you are breathing, you might be a DT

There....I just saved Missouri a ton a paper....they can thank me later.

Hi Pearls!

I, for one, am glad someone chose to define 'Militia' as the Constitution means it...

Very good post, Lady! (er, Cool Chick!)

The Constitution actually does not define Militia outside of saying "a well-regulated [one] is necessary to the security of a free state." Militia is actually defined in the US Code, Title 10, §311:

§ 311. Militia: composition and classes

(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are—
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

(Emphasis mine) So that means that *every* male between 17 and 45 is currently considered part of the Militia according to US Code, even if they're not in the National Guard.


Title 10 was last updated January 3, 2007, so one could assume that this is current.

The MIssouri document is disappointing as it shows that profiling is alive and well, be it racial or otherwise, in our LEO community.
