    The idea that someone doesn't have a right to "freeload" on unused, public land that serves no other purpose is inconsistent with the idea that one has the right to "freeload" on American society for subsistence simply for living in the country.

    I'm not ignoring it, I'm saying it's wrong, which it is.

    I understand that that is your opinion. Luckily, the early Americans didn't hold that opinion.

    No, they disagree with federal control of the land. That is not wrong.

    It is when they start acting ILLEGALLY. If THEY don't like it, they are free to fight it in courts. The simple fact is they didn't get their way and are throwing a temper tantrum illegally.

    Those that support Bundy are supporting freeloading. Don't EVER talk to me about welfare recipients when YOU support one.

    And what moral justification is there for it?

    I agree, they can take it to the court. Or they can do this and let elected officials respond.

    No, they're protesting...and I'll talk to you about whatever I want.

    Oh they are going to get their elected officials to respond alright, though I doubt they are going to like the end result of it.

    No, they're protesting...and I'll talk to you about whatever I want.
    No, they are not just protesting. And go right ahead and I will call you out on your hypocrisy each and every time for it when you bring it up.

    The right is already hypocritical, because they believe they can act against the government for anything they don't like, but when the left does it they accuse the left of being traitors.
