We must defend our rights

April 21, 2014

Now really, aren't you tired of the government's overreaching?

If you are, it's time to read the U.S. Constitution and challenge your representatives and senators to do the same. Live up to their oath of office or quit. Our rights are God given, not government given. We put these people in office to protect us and our rights - really, nothing else. They have usurped powers that 'We The People' have never given them, either through abrogation or legal legislation. There is a tremendous amount of what our founders would call "pretend law and pretend legislation" out there.

Our legislative, executive and judicial branches of government have made laws that are against the U.S. Constitution, the citizens of this country, and the law of nature, thus they are "pretend law".  It is our absolute right and responsibility to challenge these so called laws.

Just look at the conflict in Nevada. The Bureau of Land Management was instituted to use the ranchers grazing fees (a questionable regulation) to help manage and improve the land. That stopped soon and the monies no longer helped the ranchers, but grew the agency. Now the land is closed to protect the desert tortoise. Well, the desert tortoise was there long before the BLM, and actually survived when the land supported tens of thousands of bison or buffalo. I believe the BLM is necessary, but so is common sense.

What is the real reason?  Is there a company controlled by a member of congress or their family that wants the mineral rights?  Has a member of congress promised the land to a developer?

As citizens, that land belongs to all of us, not the BLM. We need to quit selling our votes for so called entitlements and cell phones. Stand up, take control and responsibility for your own lives. Return to being 'proud Americans' instead of whiny takers.  Defend your rights, all of them, before they are gone forever.
