Personally, I think Joseph A. Stack is a hero. He did something that has been in the minds of many outraged Americans for years, and I agree that
things have gotten to the point that violence will be the only voice heard.
Joseph A. Stack wasn't some moron that didn't know what he was talking about, he was an engineer and a well informed citizen capable of expressing
his thoughts clearly and accurately. I'm not saying that people without formal educations should be overlooked, I am merely pointing out that he was
intelligent enough to realize the sorry state our nation is in and take the only course of action left for many of us.
Some would say "Joseph was a wealthy engineer that could afford an airplane, so he couldn't have been too bad off". The truth is, despite the
assets he had, he was backed into a corner by the same institutions that propose to govern us. These same institutions have backed many of us into
similar corners by controlled manipulative consumerism or strong arm robbery on their part. If you don't believe me then consider the home
foreclosures and outrageous credit card debts a majority of Americans have been plagued with. If you don't believe me then consider the outrageous
gas prices and tax hikes we have seen lately. Sure, they would appear to be unrelated...but aren't they all governed by the same greedy corporations
that work in tandem to rob us of our value as human beings?
I have read posts by several people in other forums calling Joseph A. Stack a coward. He was not a coward, he gave his life for something he believed
was right. No coward would do that. I have also seen some people call him a terrorist. Perhaps that is true, but remember that the difference between
a terrorist and a freedom fighter is all dependent on which side of the fence you are standing on.
I have seen some concerns posted that imply that our government will be imposing more control over it's people. I honestly don't know if that will
happen or not, however if it does happen it will only fuel on a cause that has been burning in the minds of many American citizens for decades now. I
find it interesting that there are people trying to label him as some Tea Party maniac. The truth is, that everyone in America can get behind this
cause, it doesn't matter what their skin color, economic status or political preference is. Our government would love to see us divided on this. They
are probably sweating bullets right now hoping that this doesn't escalate any further. I urge anyone and everyone to take this to the next level and
let our government know that we mean business. I just ask that the innocent be left untouched.
The bottom line is, it is time for our government and the corporations that run it to begin fearing and respecting us as American citizens and as
human beings. I would prefer that they listen to us under peaceful circumstances, but they have shown that they are unwilling to do that. All of the
voting, demonstration rallies, and letters of complaints written to congressmen that have been ignored for so long have proven this. So, logically
speaking what is the next step for us as a nation and as a people?
I think Joseph A. Stack had the correct answer.
At any rate, I have expressed how I feel about this. I know that I am not the only one thinking this either.
In reference to "Fight Club"...
His name wasn't Robert Paulson it was Joseph A. Stack
