Anti-government sentiment is not cause for fear, a sign of insanity, or a precursor of tragedy. Quite the contrary. Anti-government sentiment signifies attentiveness, understanding, and a love of liberty.

How difficult if not impossible it may be to clear your name. Citizens must have the right to quickly appeal before their lives are mistakenly destroyed.
How does this differ than what Hitler did for Germany? This has nothing to do with terrorism but everything to do with the systematic replacement of the the Constitution and the Bill of Rights with the Nazi handbook by people who want to destroy our great country.
Even if a small, draconian no-fly list should legally exist because of people proven without a shadow of a doubt to be involved with terrorists, government must publicize all the reasons why people are blacklisted.
