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?!
POLL: What do you think Obama was doing while Americans were being killed in Benghazi?
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
