Taxpayers victimized by Nevada rancher

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

Imagine rallying your friends to take up arms against your landlord because you refuse to pay rent and trespass and defy the courts to pay past-due charges.

Imagine stating that “I abide by all of Nevada state laws. But I don’t recognize the United States government as even existing.” Then you mount your horse, carry the American flag and chant your Second Amendment right of the very same country you disavow.

That’s exactly what the welfare cowboy, Cliven Bundy, did. Letter writer Joseph K. Waltenbaugh champions Bundy’s efforts to use the threat of violence to continue stealing from the taxpayers (April 24).

Bundy has stolen far more than any hypothetical food stamp cheat ever did. Of course, it was Ronald Reagan who imposed the grazing fees Bundy refused to pay.

Bundy only became a hero to Waltenbaugh and the Tea Partiers because he was standing up to President Obama. To further the Tea Party racism, Bundy suggested that “the Negro” would be “better off as slaves” in an April 23 New York Times interview.

The Nevada constitution, (Article 1 Section 2) states 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.

Meanwhile, letter writer Russ Hall claims President Obama has issued 25 executive orders dealing with gun control (April 25). Hall would be credible if he cited at least one specific example.

Cliven Bundy and his supporters should be sent to Guantanamo with all the other terrorists.

Nah, it's not for me.
