I am sure that you have been waiting, anxiously, for my take on this whole situation.
Out in Nevada (Harry Reid's home state) there is a rancher named Cliven Bundy. His family has farmed on the land for 100 years. For the past 20 years, the Bundys have been in violation of federal law for not paying grazing fees to the federal bureau of land management.
The Bundys have refused to pay those fees to the federal government. However, the Bundys have paid all of their grazing fees to the state of Nevada.
During the past 20 years, as the Bundys have fought with the federal government, every other rancher in the area has lost their battle with the federal government. According to Bundy 52 (or 53) other families used to live and work the land nearby. But, they have all given up their fight with the Feds.
The Bundy family is truly taking a stand against our tyrannical government, alone.
But, why? He is in violation of federal law. What is his point? Why doesn't he cave in, too?
Because he has a constitution - the federal government has no jurisdiction over state lands and the federal government can't infringe upon states' rights.
When the federal government was set up, the founders of our country feared a tyrannical government more than anything. They had personal experience. States have the right to govern themselves.
So, in this case, Cliven Bundy is right. He has paid his grazing fees to the state. It doesn't matter now many federal laws he has violated, the federal government doesn't have any jurisdiction over a land matter in Nevada.
Do you see what I am saying?
And, now, I just read that Harry Reid may have an interest in that land. He could make lots of money from taking that land. Well, if that isn't true, I can just retract it. You know, like he retracted his false statement about Mitt Romney not paying taxes. Oh, wait, he didn't retract that false statement. Or, like the way that he apologized to all of those people hurt by Obamacare that he called liars. Oh, wait, he didn't retract that one either.
Well, look it up. You can form your own opinion.
