    Water wars have been a fact of life in the west for many years, and show no signs of ending. Still, so far no rancher has refused to pay for water deliveries, then assembled a militia to protect his supposed right to free water. At least, I don't remember such a thing actually having happened.

    I think it's relevant, after all, the militias supporting Bundy were armed. Makes the US government wonder what else they're capable of. It makes me suspicious of his followers.
    How is it relevant then?

    Most farmers in the Rio Grande valley work with the state and federal agencies.

    With that being said, whenever the Rio Grande river levels go down, farmers & ranchers south of the dam I mentioned before are at the fate of mother nature. Their locks for water are set to a certain height, as agreed to by all concerned parties. Most ranchers and farmers know the risks of being at risk of not having enough water, but none ever go the the Dam with weapons and demand more water.

    As I understand it, the ranchers around Bundy have already voiced their displeasure with the man, which sent a small signal, but their message got out there, none the less.

    It's relevant because the government doesn't really know what militias are capable of, or what they're planning next. Call it fear of the unknown, and expecting the worst of a circumstance.

    I believe the federal agents backed off from the militia in Bunkerville wisely.

    You know, that's uncalled for. If you have an opinion, state it, and let's debate it, cut the crap please.

    or at least pay your bills.

    Here's another supporter of Bundy. He's even written a folk song for the folk hero.

    Tell you what, you go to another country, break the law, and then find out what happens. Than come back and whine how bad the U.S. is ok? God some righties are idiots.
    No, not a hero... just a guy fighting an injustice made to shut him down to free up his lands for further projects that will add to corrupt politicians wealth.

    It was against the law for Rosa parks to sit at the front of the bus... doesn't make it right. ..

    But no, in the end this guy will be shut down, along with all others who will get shut down if they are not part of the select few that get exemptions from all these in just laws.

    Don't worry the government will eventually get the guns to, piece by piece until nobody will be able to stand against injustice...

    Then once the government gets the monopoly on power, then we'll be able to live like they do in north Korea.

    Yes that horrible government. One wonders why you are even here, I mean there are soo many utopias to choose from, why do you remain here in this hell hole that you despise so much? Maybe you would be happier in Iran.

    Comparing a guy who is not paying his fees that every other rancher does, to Rosa Parks just shows how intellectually dishonest your comments really are.

    Join him then. Refuse to pay your electric bill, your water bill, your rent/mortgage, and your taxes. You'll be a patriot just like Cliven Bundy.
