    Here's the story from the Christian Science Monitor:

    There you go. There's your folk hero standing up to the big bad federal government, you know, the freedom fighter who has been compared to the revolutionaries of '76.

    What a guy. What a role model for the RWENJ!
    If you think this way of Bundy, I wonder what you think of Washington, Jefferson and some other Founding Fathers. Bundy talked about slavery, these others actually owned slaves.

    Times have changed a bit since the 18th. century, at least in most places.

    Perhaps not in Eastern Nevada.

    Right, they would have just confiscated his entire ranch.

    Let us know when Bundy starts his own country then you can compare him to the founders. As it stands, he's just a free loader.

    The BLM has the authority to enforce federal law on federal land which includes nabbing poachers, marijuana growers and even busting vacationers smoking a joint around the campfire out in the middle of nowhere.

    Not by use of para-military units.

    I remember the shock I had when learning that Obama's former Treasury Secretary Geithner owed thousands in back taxes! And they called Romney a tax cheat? : Disingenuous at best, since you can be certain Romney was careful to the penny on his taxes! Disgusting hypocricy!

    Well, ahem, he did try to pay an agency of the state of Nevada, which is akin to you going to your electric company or other utility and trying to pay your mortgage-lease-rent to. They don't want your landlord's money, they want theirs. See, he doesn't recognize the US Government but he recognizes a state which is in the Union

    Most of us didn't know that Nevada seceded from the union, but ssshhhhh, don't tell anyone, especially the constitutionalists roaming the thread, and especially those bringing up the 1700's to 1800's they'll be celebrating. Me, you and Bundy know Nevada is no longer a state in the United States, please, keep it under your hat, very top secret, hush-hush and all that.

    I love how Bundy claims to be following in the footsteps of the Founding Fathers, ignoring the fact that Washington used federal forces to crush the whiskey rebellion which was over taxation as well. Read your history Bundy, the swat teams are nothing compared to washington's use of the army
