My Confession to being a Homegrown Terrorist
To the United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and the President of the United States:
Pursuant to the Enrolled Bill H.R. 1955, (Short Title being “Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Protection Act of 2007”, passed by the United States House of Representatives, I hereby wish to spare the unwitting, docile, brainwashed sycophants who support the despotic police state known as the United States the time and trouble of investigating, charging, trying, convicting, and punishing me under the looming thought crime legislation cited above as H.R. 1955, and hereby confess my crimes to the world and the now-extinct free and independent American Citizens, as being guilty of fostering, promoting, and engaging in homegrown terrorism, to wit:
Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 (Engrossed as Agreed to or Passed by House)
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the `Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007′.
SEC. 2. PREVENTION OF VIOLENT RADICALIZATION AND HOMEGROWN TERRORISM.
(a) In General- Title VIII of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (6 U.S.C. 361 et seq.) is amended by adding at the end the following new subtitle:
`Subtitle J–Prevention of Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism
`SEC. 899A. DEFINITIONS.
`For purposes of this subtitle:
`(1) COMMISSION- The term `Commission’ means the National Commission on the Prevention of Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism established under section 899C.
`(2) VIOLENT RADICALIZATION- The term `violent radicalization’ means the process of adopting or promoting an extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically based violence to advance political, religious, or social change.
(Make no mistake. This can be construed to include self-defense or opposition to unlawful authority)
AS TO VIOLATING SEC. 899A DEFINITIONS (2) VIOLENT RADICALIZATION – GUILTY AS CHARGED:
I plead guilty to adopting and promoting the extremist beliefs of other Homegrown Terrorist, such as Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Patrick Henry, and the Founding Fathers et al. I believe in the extremist sentiments promoted in the words of the Declaration of Independence that say “That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it….”. I believe that the government is subordinate to the People, is supposed to be responsive to the protection of life, liberty, and property; and is deserving of revolt or other forceful measures should it fail to perform under the enumerated and limited duties imposed by the consenting governed or other free inhabitants subjected to its authority. My actions, thoughts, words, and beliefs constitute “adopting or promoting an extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically based violence to advance political, religious, or social change”, as defined in Definition (2), as I hope to advance righteous violence against an unresponsive and tyrannical government that attempts to suppress the right to rebel and throw off unresponsive despotism. I hope to advance political and social change by rallying People to defend themselves should such government forcibly compel them to act in manners inconsistent with the free exercise and enjoyment of liberty by whatever means necessary, be it through fostering Homegrown Terrorism in such a manner as I hereby admit to, or resorting to arms or other means for self-preservation.
`(3) HOMEGROWN TERRORISM- The term `homegrown terrorism’ means the use, planned use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual born, raised, or based and operating primarily within the United States or any possession of the United States to intimidate or coerce the United States government, the civilian population of the United States, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.
(You don’t have to use both, just either/or. If you plan or threaten; use force or violence, then you are engaging in terrorism. What exactly is “force” if it is not violence?)
AS TO VIOLATING SEC. 899A DEFINITION (3) HOMEGROWN TERRORISM – NOT GUILTY PENDING FINDINGS OF FACT AND CONCLUSIONS IN LAW:
I do not claim to be, nor can be proven to be, an “individual” who is born, raised, or operating primarily within the United States or any possession of the United States, or intimidating or coercing the United States government or the civilian population of the United States. I am a man who was born and raised in, and operating primarily within, one of the several state Republics, party to the Constitution of the united States of America. The United States is a foreign, corporate entity predisposed to imperialism, militarism, oppression, violence, tyranny, robbery, and murder. If that foreign malignancy attempts to engage me then I will retaliate in-kind. Overt acts of war notwithstanding, whatever ideas, writings, speech, thoughts, or other perceived “Homegrown Terrorist” acts I may engage in will speak to the atrocities, intentions, actions, and dangers of that federal malignancy and hopefully put free People on notice that the encroaching metastases will be identified, addressed, and barred from harming-further the freedoms of sovereign People. I fully support the use of “force” or “violence” in defending against aggression or assault by a despotic or tyrannical government.
`(4) IDEOLOGICALLY BASED VIOLENCE- The term `ideologically based violence’ means the use, planned use, or threatened use of force or violence by a group or individual to promote the group or individual’s political, religious, or social beliefs.
AS TO VIOLATING SEC. 899A DEFINITION (4) IDEOLOGICALLY BASED VIOLENCE – GUILTY AS CHARGED
I admit to using “force” to promote the political, religious, and social beliefs of myself, and other freedom-loving People who have contributed to the ideas of liberty, popular sovereignty, and limited government. I admit to using my words, my speech, and my body in promoting such radical beliefs. I arm, educate, and prepare myself in all ways necessary to ensure my liberty and life are secure and enjoyed. I support the use of whatever means necessary in promoting the radical political and social beliefs that strive to keep all People free and government small.
`SEC. 899B. FINDINGS.
`The Congress finds the following:
`(1) The development and implementation of methods and processes that can be utilized to prevent violent radicalization, homegrown terrorism, and ideologically based violence in the United States is critical to combating domestic terrorism.
(Congress realized their game is coming to an end, and in order to prepare for their fallback position in defending their bastion of despotism, it is first prudent and expedient to act against the words of the promoters of all which is antithetical to their usurped and abused positions of power.)
`(2) The promotion of violent radicalization, homegrown terrorism, and ideologically based violence exists in the United States and poses a threat to homeland security.
(I believe King George believed the same before our Founding Terrorists revolted against their “Homeland” and fostered a land of outlaws, terrorists, murderers, and other disparaging words of honor.)
`(3) The Internet has aided in facilitating violent radicalization, ideologically based violence, and the homegrown terrorism process in the United States by providing access to broad and constant streams of terrorist-related propaganda to United States citizens.
(I assume the Internet, as the printing press, has proved a formidable foe to ignorance and deceit; and therefore must be regulated and quashed at every turn before the minds of revolutionaries-in-waiting are awakened to the call to arms.)
`(4) While the United States must continue its vigilant efforts to combat international terrorism, it must also strengthen efforts to combat the threat posed by homegrown terrorists based and operating within the United States.
(While the United States is suffering the backlash of its imperialistic, militaristic hegemony abroad it realizes it cannot fight a war on two fronts and finds it expedient to quell the rebellion at home in effort to stifle dissent abroad.)
`(5) Understanding the motivational factors that lead to violent radicalization, homegrown terrorism, and ideologically based violence is a vital step toward eradicating these threats in the United States.
(Congress realizes that ideas promoting freedom, liberty, and responsive government are anathema to its perpetuation so they must move quickly and decisively to snuff ideologically inspired dissent and promote acquiescence, complacence, and apathy under duress.)
`(6) Preventing the potential rise of self radicalized, unaffiliated terrorists domestically cannot be easily accomplished solely through traditional Federal intelligence or law enforcement efforts, and can benefit from the incorporation of State and local efforts.
(Congress realizes the tools at its disposal are not effective enough at stemming the growing tide of dissent, so this overt and bold move towards a fully ensconced police state is necessary at a federal level.)
`(7) Individuals prone to violent radicalization, homegrown terrorism, and ideologically based violence span all races, ethnicities, and religious beliefs, and individuals should not be targeted based solely on race, ethnicity, or religion.
(Congress will not discriminate in who they will target. Everyone is now their declared enemy if they dare to dissent or foster dissent.)
`(8) Any measure taken to prevent violent radicalization, homegrown terrorism, and ideologically based violence and homegrown terrorism in the United States should not violate the constitutional rights, civil rights, or civil liberties of United States citizens or lawful permanent residents.
(The best thing to do is not be a United States citizen or lawful permanent resident, but instead expatriate and resort to either your state for protection, under its original organic constitution, or resort to a state of nature and defend all you hold dear at whatever costs. Constitutional rights, civil rights, and civil liberties are watered-down platitudes finding their source or origination in words on paper. Those who cherish and protect Creator-derived unalienable rights hold the moral high-ground and are the true authority.)
`(9) Certain governments, including the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia have significant experience with homegrown terrorism and the United States can benefit from lessons learned by those nations.
(Brace yourselves for the one-world-government and New World Order, brought to you by the union of co-opted, oppressive, collectivist and corporate-whoredom nations.)

Therefore I, Mark McCoy, profess my guilt in agreeing with the ideologies, professing the means, and promoting the furtherance of all actions, and using whatever weapons, in the struggle for liberty, as originated by the progenitors and predecessors of past, present, and future “Homegrown Terrorists” who have stood defiant in the face of tyranny and despotism in proclaiming their sovereignty and defending their liberties; and in doing so thus throw down the gauntlet and eagerly await prosecution under the Short Title, as defined by myself, of H.R. 1955 to be “The Government Must Be Really Scared And Desperate In Order To Go To This Extreme, So Why Don’t They All Just Give Up Now Before We Show Them The TRUE Meaning Of Terror in 2008”
