Fending off a Super Highway



Pace's latest cause may just attract some anti-government types to Mount Carmel. The state of Texas is considering building a north-south superhighway through the Waco area, part of a massive statewide project known as the Trans-Texas Corridor.
"Yes, we're going to fight it," he said. "They'll have to carry my cold body off this place. Or bury me here with the rest of them."

The waco thing, is in the news again i see. For me people ask when it all went wrong for america, and i will always say. It went wrong for america the day american public let there government do such a horrendous thing, like waco. I could not see how anyone would laugh at the government killing 4 year old kids, and the public just said "so what". So when your kids ask you in the future when did america go bad, just tell them when the american public did not support the waco family and there rights.

For me it was the turning point, but it took about 10 more years for most of you here and elsewhere with the 911 truthers to wake up. Sorry but what happened in waco, and by the fact the american public just laughed it of, ended your constitution and bill of rights forever.

Well now the government want to build a road over the ruins of waco, so what do you guys think?

The government certainly handled the Waco situation wrong, but I would not necessarily call the site of the Branch Davidian compound sacred ground.

Granted in America, people have the right to have odd and cooky beliefs and they should not be subjected to violence for those beliefs, but nevertheless the Branch Davidians were odd and cooky. Furthermore, David Koresh and his followers were not entirely free from blame in that they did not make any reasonable effort to prevent the tense situation from escalating. Martyrs tend to be innocent and have a reasonable and well founded belief in their cause. Since the Koresh and company were not innocent and lacked a well founded belief in their cause, they lack martyr like qualities, which makes the place of their death non-sacred ground.
