Cliven Bundy’s son Ryan told newsmen that the Sheriff of Clark County, Nevada, and all county sheriffs in all 50 states, should disarm BLM agents and all the other bureaucrats who command the vast array of alphabet soup that governs so much of what passes for business as usual in America.
As such, this is an historical document, a shot heard round the world in its own rite.
It is a clear iteration of an idea that is gaining currency and momentum throughout the nation, backed by citizen militiamen who insist that a strict construction of the 10th amendment would eliminate huge portions of the federal government that are not only unnecessary, but undesirable. Their holding is that such bureaucracies diminish the freedoms and thereby the quality of life of Americans.
It is Bundy’s opinion that according to the U.S. Constitution, the County Sheriff is the only real law enforcement officer in any of the United States. He also ventures the opinion that the government is merely regrouping, preparing for a more elaborate raid on his family’s cattle ranch, upon which his father has refused to pay grazing fees since 1996. Federal authorities have no right to collect the estimated $1.1 million in unpaid fees, according to Bundy.
