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.
