    Anyone want to venture a guess why the G wants this barren land so bad, now.

    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.

    I think you just answered your own question.


    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.

    This is the very definition of bringing a knife to a gun fight.

    Yea, that's what they said in 1776. Guess who won.

    The Government won...and in fact was born from it.

    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.

    The British won? Really? We were under King George III law at the time. That was the government.

    According to Infowars it's a Chinese funded solar power facility however Infowars isn't credible. I've read other news sorces, either Brietbart of the Blaze, who said that project which was being pushed by Reids son had been canceled and was a hundred fifty miles from the Bundy ranch. I'd believe Breitbart or the Blaze before I'd believe Alex Jones, however the Inforwars video of the confrontation was entertaining and there was a lot of
    schedenfreude attached to watching the cowboys beat the Feds.
