    I don't support the law, I feel the BLM is corrupt beyond repair, and the whole " that is our land, he owes us rent" argument is nonsense.

    BLM enforcement is up to the highest bidder, always has been.
    if there was no one in the wings trying to get that land, the BLM wouldn't ever touch the guy.... i don't know about other places, but that's been proven time and time again in Nevada.

    the BLM is trying to run over the guy to make way for developers.... he is, however, making it easy for them to do so by not paying his tribute to the Gods ( which does not go to maintaining or imp[roving the the land, btw.. nor does it go to you and me)... but that doesn't change the fact he's in the way and some folks in government want him gone.
    It's government land; therefore, the government can do whatever it wants with that land. They don't owe Bundy a reason he likes for making him pay rent to use their land.

    He was using others' land for his own gain. Freeloader. Theft.

    Supporting someone being a deadbeat piece of **** who refuses to pay his bills makes one a libertarian?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
