The more I learn about the situation the more I know that Cliven Bundy is taking his stand because we today have a government that is not only uncaring about her citizens, but is also determined to control our every thought and action. The justifications that have been used by the BLM are not valid, they are in fact falsehoods, and finding out where the money goes, right to Harry Reid and his cronies makes it even clearer why this is happening.
It was learned yesterday that Harry Reid was working on a deal with a Chinese solar company to use the land in question for development of a solar plant. So here we go, more Solyndra types of spending, but this time so much worse since we as a government are going to put the interests of a Chinese company over those of an American citizen. What's more, the government's excuse for the action was that it was saving land tortoises yet it was also found out yesterday that since they have too many on site they are euthanizing them. Harry Reid, a Nevadan by birth, is once again showing not only his disdain for his country but also for the good citizens of the state he is supposed to be representing.
Meanwhile, Mr. Bundy and his family fight on even though one son has been arrested, a pregnant woman has been knocked to the ground as well as his sister who is battling cancer. Two supporters from Utah were jailed just for trying to find out what is going on.
Oh, the jack booted thugs of Amerika in military style uniforms. What brave guys they are in front of decent law abiding citizens with their high powered weapons and ammunition. I'll bet their families are really proud of them displaying their blind support for tyranny against our own citizens. Is this the future of our country now that so many agencies are creating little fiefdom police forces? It will be unless Americans unite to take their country back with non-violent opposition in all places. Speak up often and loudly and let your voices be heard.
Today the feds have upped the pressure one more notch. The FAA has now made the Bundy Ranch a no fly zone, meaning that the feds can do anything they want in the airspace without curious news choppers being able to watch. It's probably so that they can take out the brave cowboys who have saved some of the Bundy's cattle. If anyone gets hurt, it's all on the government, remember that.
Rancher Bundy was on the Hannity radio program yesterday and he made some interesting points. He stated that he had no problems paying any fees he owed to a legitimate government. He further stated that he considered the Clark County, Nevada government and the Nevada state government legitimate in this matter. Since he never entered into any contract with the feds, and since his family has used this land for grazing since 1873, it would seem that he has a very good point.
The entire issue brings up several of questions that should be used to open a conversation about the reason for this issue. Why does the federal government own 28% of American land and why are they trying to gain control over more land? What is the benefit of doing this for citizens? More importantly, what are the negative consequence of this? I think we need to have the conversation now since this issue is unlikely to go away. With a government that thinks it is all powerful, it will only get worse.
Think about it and pray about it, America. I hope you will join me in questioning your own elected representatives about this and I further hope you will join me in praying for the safety of the Bundy family, a freedom loving family under siege by a government that is becoming more despotic every day. God help America.
