The biggest problem with going after domestic terrorism is there is no clear definition. A Homeland Security-funded START report defined being "reverent of individual liberty" and "suspicious of centralized federal authority" as indicators of terrorism. A Missouri Fusion Center defined the gadsden flag, the symbol of the tea party movement, as a terrorist symbol. FBI brochures identify having "strange odors" and "not being willing to give their social security number" as indicators of terrorism. Our "War on Terror" is really a war on fear. We don't want to be afraid, so we ask the government to protect us. The problem is, it eventually turns into a war on opinions the public defines as fearful. We have statutes that define criminal acts. Murder, assault, and other harms caused by "terrorists" are already punished under our criminal code. The only reason to add "terrorism" on top of those charges, is to punish people for the political opinions they hold when they commit those acts. Giving government the power to punish political opinion is an incredibly dangerous act.
