If I am fighting for the freedom to create the government I want. Then yes I am a freedom fighter to me and all those that believe in what I am fighting for.

The term 'freedom fighter' doesn't literally mean somebody who is fighting for freedom. It' just a synonym for insurgent, and in the media/common usage that definition is very loose as well.
I do find it disturbing that while our leadership was getting us all focused on the terrorists attacking freedom and our rights...we were actually being "pick-pocketed" of the very same while our attention was turned.
So who is the bigger terrorist against freedom?
This reminds me of some of the famous quotes by great people (Presidents, Einstein, etc.) years ago who talked about how the real threats will be in the guise of fighting a foreign threat.
