Letter: Bless the patriots who fought for Bundy
First Published Apr 29 2014 05:02 pm • Last Updated Apr 29 2014 05:02 pm

The Bundy issue had nothing to do with grazing fees. It was about government intimidation. It was a warning to anyone who would cross the feds, no matter how minor, that they would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. (No matter how unconstitutional that law might be.)

They spent $3 million as a "show of force" over grazing fees that are coming down from the million dollar figure to a 5-digit fine.

The point the feds were making to all of us was that they would spend as much money, use as many personnel, label, marginalize, document and target anyone who would dare to protest their power to enforce their will upon the nation.

(Only citizens have "rights." Governments have "powers" granted to the government by the governed.)

They were baiting the country to see who, among the "folks," would actually come out and fight and who would roll over.

Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck rolled over like a Big Dog! They failed us.

The patriots that answered the call will someday pay for their love of the Constitution. Bless them!
