Nevadans (and others) who hate Bundy don't understand that this isn't about Bundy or grazing rights, it's about the Constitution. It's about states' rights, and a galactically overreaching federal power, with supporters like Reid who should be representing their state but aren't.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
It is one thing to stand up to your government, in fact it is your duty and responsibility under the Constitution. It is another thing to cause violent revolt and threaten force.....the obvious reaction would be a terrible slaughter backed by legal Government actions.

Trying to equate this situation to the revolutionary war is rather pathetic and just plain silly. If you by chance, do not see the differences or believe for some reason that a population revolting against foreign powers is akin to an extremely small part of the citizenry deciding to take up arms against it's own Government....there is not much to discuss here.
schedenfreude attached to watching the cowboys beat the Feds.
