I've been following the Bundy Ranch situation from the beginning. And, though I think the BLM was way too heavy-handed, I don't think we'll ever know the entire truth about either side in this. I applaud conservatives and to a degree, even the militias who stood up for The Constitution and the rights of we the people.
But, now it is time for tempers to cool. And, though I don't trust the BLM in any way, shape, or form, I'd like to voice my concern about the remaining militia people in Nevada. I'm seeing reports that some militia members are operating checkpoints on public roads, demanding to see people's I.D. to prove they have a right to be there. Excuse me, but can someone tell me when the Soviet Union was restored and Nevada became its newest province?!
If Mr. Bundy wants the militias to remain on HIS property for his own reasons, that is one thing. For the militias to appoint themselves as the guardians of public highways is another matter entirely, and THEY are now the ones restricting the free movement of innocent American citizens.
Have we traded one set of bullies for another?!
Don't get me wrong. I too, support The Constitution, and swore an oath to defend it. And, given the right set of circumstances I would also take up arms. But is this the right time and circumstance? I do not believe that it is. In my humble opinion, the militias made their point; A legitimate one I might add. But if they continue with their present behavior, they run the risk of undoing any good that has been done. It is time for them to stand down, go home, and let cooler heads work on reaching a resolution for Mr. Bundy

You need to READ what I said. I have NO PROBLEM either with the militias being on Bundy;'s ranch. MY concern is if the reports are true that the militias have set up checkpoints on PUBLIC roads NOT on Bundy's property. Please read what people say with your BRAIN instead of your emotions!
This is how WARS get started!
I believe the reports that the militia are stopping people on PUBLIC roads and thereby are taking the law into their own hands. It does the TEA party movement no good.
But I do understand many either agreeing with that illegal and dangerous conduct or needing to deny it's happening. God forbid some regular citizen refusing to be stopped by civilians and showing ID and is then shot.
I know I wouldn't stop and show ID. I'd consider the possibility they were cartel members.
Jonathon, the report DID NOT state that those setting up check points were FEDS, it clearly stated they were militia. You may not want to believe that but until you get definitive proof otherwise, please don't post unsubstantiated suppositions. It doesn't help our cause.
Now it you asked me, could it be FEDS posing as the militia, I'd say it could be quite possible. But I have no evidence of that other than prior behavior by government agencies.
So much for my whipping you across the eyeball with a wet noodle. Capiche? :-)
I would say ,the Bundys should be the Judge of this, as my knowledge of Harry Reid, and his viciousness, and his greedy son, who learned how to lie, cheat and steal from his Good Old Dad. We have not seen the end of this. Five Billion, they are not going to give up, and they will be back, in some form or another. I hope people stay there, to help protect this American in need. I applaud the men and women ,who continue to care for their Fellow Man, and thank them for their Goodness.
“WE WANT GOD” is an answer to the political stress in our country. The stress exists because organized atheism is bullying Organized Christianity. When this same stress existed in the Soviet Union, Christians began standing up to atheism on June 2, 1979, by saying in unison “We Want God.” Because of that stance, they caused the Soviet Union to collapse within ten years, marking the end of organized atheism in the governing bodies of Eastern Europe. Peggy Noonan documented that story in the Wall Street Journal under the title “We Want God.”
The regime of organized atheism ruled in Eastern Europe for more than 40 years, using oppressive bureaucracies and armed forces to impose its rule. In the United States of America, the many factions of organized atheism are abusing the rule of law to chip away at the religious freedoms traditionally enjoyed by Organized Christianity. This process of ‘death by a thousand cuts’ is sanctioned, even encouraged, by a regime that is imposing the rule of Big Government on our country through the use of oppressive bureaucracies. So far, this process does not include the use of armed forces.
You and I and all like-minded people in our own country can also stand up to the bullying of organized atheism. We can say in unison “We Want God,” and we can say it as we decide whom to vote for on November 4, 2014. This November, elect only those candidates whom you can trust to become servants of the people, not bullies of the people. Elect only those candidates whom you can trust to take Big Government Bureaucracy out of our homes and out of our private lives.
Stand up to the bullies. Tell them “We Want God.”
I like you. EXCELLENT comment!
Like the 101st Airborne said in WWII Germany, edge of The Black Forest: "We are the devils in baggy britches, and this is as far as the bastards are going".
First of all, freedom is not earned by standing down or by peaceful means. Second of all, I believe those reports are propaganda. Hitler claimed the socialists and communists burnt down the Reichstag (false flag), then he declared martial law. So I believe if you want to win a war you attack and attack and attack, not stand down so the enemy can advance forward. Remember, offense is best defense!
Thank you for your balanced and thoughtful response. I realized after I wrote my piece that I communicated very poorly regarding some of my thoughts. I hope to redeem myself in their eyes in the very near future.
You are ok and will survive this.
