It's not that extreme. it's not as though he was using something really dangerous (not to mention un-American) like www.fsf.org
I actually clicked on that too, just to make sure

Incidently, did you here about our 'King Leonard' of the Hut River Kingdom ....
It actually exists in Western Australia, he was the Mayor, but declared himself King around the late '70's to mid '80's sometime. And then declared war on the Crown via a letter to our Governor General. Seems there is an old statute that says, if the Grown doesn't respond to a declaration of war, then it has conceded defeat.
He eventually, got himself arrested going through customs in New York. His passport had his occupation listed as sovereign, and the passport was a fully fledged Hut River Kingdom version (grin).
He did manage to get, i think, a half page article in the N.Y. Times, that also discussed Hut River, pointing out its' aspects as a tourist destination. And the charges were all dropped of course.
How could the Americans prosecute someone who claimed to be King by right of winning the Hut River war of Independence in the early '80's ...
Besides, do you know how much advertising costs in the N.Y. Times (grin) ...
The guy is a true genius
edit: can't spell sovereign
