Most of the regular readers to this site are probably aware to Cliven Bundy and the situation his family is currently facing in Nevada. For those unaware read this submission to CopBlock.org posted earlier today or this piece written by Christoper Cantwell titled, “5 Things the Bundy Ranch Teaches Us.” If that doesn’t work, use Google to get caught up on the this insane situation.
My blog post today is NOT a background story to help you understand the standoff. My post here won’t be a call on action (though I believe as many people who can, should get to the Bundy’s Ranch) or a solution to the problem, I believe even if I had those, it’s not my place. How this interaction between government agents and the Bundy’s ends, is up to them.
What I want to do, is ask you a simple question. As the world watches another perfect government storm unfold, with all the similarities of Ruby Ridge and Waco, have you ever thought about what you would do of (but more like, when) the government pushes you to your breaking point? In the words of William Wallace (played by Mel Gibson in Braveheart), “Will you stand up and fight? Or will you run?”
Now I can already predict the responses from my friends, the CB trolls and most any statists. Yet, I urge you to really think about this. Sadly we live in a world where government agents regularly (whether as a mailman, censuses worker or full on swat team) come to your door (most the time under the pretense of helping you) and end up either taking everything you have and if you don’t give it to them, they’ll back you into a corner. Afterwards, they’ll blame you for fighting your way out and justify the overwhelming slaughter that will follow. Regardless of the outcome you should seriously consider your options if the man decides to take certain actions toward you. Don’t leave yourself with only two options, fight or run, when men with American flag patches and AR-15’s show up at your door. Being caught off guard and without a plan of action is a recipe for certain slaughter.
I wish the Bundy family the best. I hope the men in costumes who go out there to enforce these BS laws quit their jobs or prepare to risk their life for a paycheck. I’m sure the Bundy’s have more to fight for than just (worthless paper) money.
