Cliven Bundy and his selfish and ignorant views of the constiutions

Let’s forget for a moment that Cliven Bundy has said that he does not recognize the legitimacy of the government of the United States of America. An increasingly common view among the selfish fringes who care nothing about anything but their own self centered corners of this world.

But let us not forget Cliven Bundy is a resident of the long time libertarian and increasingly tea-party stronghold- the state of Nevada. A states whose very own constiution reads, in part:

All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for the protection, security and benefit of the people; and they have the right to alter or reform the same whenever the public good may require it. But the Paramount Allegiance of every citizen is due to the Federal Government in the exercise of all its Constitutional powers as the same have been or may be defined by the Supreme Court of the United States; and no power exists in the people of this or any other State of the Federal Union to dissolve their connection therewith or perform any act tending to impair, subvert, or resist the Supreme Authority of the government of the United States. The Constitution of the United States confers full power on the Federal Government to maintain and Perpetuate its existence, and whensoever any portion of the States, or people thereof attempt to secede from the Federal Union, or forcibly resist the Execution of its laws, the Federal Government may, by warrant of the Constitution, employ armed force in compelling obedience to its Authority.

I, for one, am tired of the selfish, self centered Ayn Rand worshipping among our nation claiming they have the moral high ground. It is this very attitude that has lead to the downfall of societies great and small throughout our worlds history.


About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.

    As I understand it, he was paying the fee, then stopped while others continued paying it. This sounds more like a deadbeat to me than an infringed upon person. I also do not care for people and the press seizing issues to show as lightning rods for some cause.

    My friend Barney likes to ask people who want to do away with things to walk with him down a list of things and usually they like the many things he mentions and want to keep them. He and I also contend people confuse bureaucracy with regulations. We need to guard against excess in the former, but understand fully the need for the latter. Doing away with the EPA is the not the smartest of ideas, e.g., but making sure they do what they need to do efficiently and effectively is a reasonable question.

    The man is a bully, plain and simple. Why the rednecks rallied around him I think can be laid at the feet of FAUX News and Shaun Hannity, who will say or do anything to belittle the government. The BLM I do believe was acting a bit heavy handed in all this, but they were still in the right.

    Excellent post.
