Hopefully someone else points this out as well, but just to be certain: the IRS works for the Federal Reserve, not our government.

How many people read his manifesto
First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me.
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

During the French revolution innocent people were killed. Sheep to the slaughter. During the American civil war innocent people were wasted to gain an upper hand. during the first world war innocent people were killed. during WW2 millions of innocent people died. every war has it's casualties every action be it good or bad has it's consequence. If this man's actions end up being the shot that starts the war then so be it. If not then let his act at least stand for the way the big business takes from the lonely worker who helps them build their empire. 100 years ago we would all work in a factory to make money. Even then it was a sad amount of money. Then came the unions and they changed the world for a short time. Sadly they too were corrupted Now it will take someone new to fill their role. We need people to stand up and say "we aren't going to take it anymore". People willing to stand in the streets chanting that until others wake up also. People believe they are all alone in the suffering the go through day by day. If they see(as in this case) that others suffer the same problems they wont be so afraid to stand up with them and chant. One voice in the dark only makes people think that person is crazy. However if 100s of voices in the dark start chanting the windows open and lights come on and maybe even more come out of their house to see what is going on. Some may return to the sanctity of their homes and the life they live. However maybe some of them will join in the cause. The more people that stand up and fight back the better the chance of winning.

excellent, i agree, but the only thing taht can change the system is unity, ants work together in a colony all as one, each has a place and they make it work flawlessly, they are insignificant mindless insects, but humans the most advanced species on the planet cant even get along, unity not violence is the key to change

It's good to see Americans stand up and give the government a giant middle finger.
I foresee more of this as things get worse.

Anyone that thinks violence is the answer is delusional. Violence is the last thing you want to think about when going up against the most powerful people on the planet. They will destoy you. You simply can't match them with force.
Any violence against the government would be quickly squashed and the vast majority of the people would support the government crackdown. The government owns the media and they would make any one that is against them look like a bunch of crazy extremists. You can't win that way.

You know, this whole scenario was played out a little too perfectly for my liking. The house on fire, the symbolic plane into the building. The fact no one was killed except him (so it's alleged), and this perfectly written manifesto that happens to be posted on the Internet.
