Those tempted to write off the standoff at the Bundy Ranch as little more than a show of force by militia-minded citizens would do well to reconsider their easy dismissal of this brewing rebellion. This goes far beyond concerns about grazing rights or the tension between the state and the federal government.
We the People are the opening words of the preamble to the Constitution. Many patriots glory in that name, “We the People” holding it aloft as a banner against the encroachments of an ever expanding central government.

They were always deadly serious about criminalizing Christianity and killing free speech, but now the American left has stopped pretending otherwise.

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in a rather scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice (remember Alice in Wonderland), “whether you can make words mean different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “who is to be master – that is all.” Perhaps Alice can give us some insight into what the government is doing right now in Bunkerville, Nevada.

Militias are reforming and retraining. Citizens are cleaning their guns and counting rounds of ammunition for them. Why? The government's heavy-handed way of dealing with a Nevada rancher whose cattle are being seized by the federal government at the point of a federal gun. Are we looking at another Ruby Ridge or yet another Waco? I certainly hope not. But the truth is, America cannot continue as the police state she has become.
Our leaders are unlawful, the social landscape is in a state of decay, and half the country is oblivious.... Welcome to America in the year 2014!
