Something drastically wrong in America--- The Final Word About the Bundy Ranch Situation.

Is this the final word about the Bundy Ranch situation in Nevada?

I doubt it will be the final word, but I found this in my archives, and it really fits the recent situation at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada.  For those who have just crawled out of a 100 year sleep, there are dozens and hundreds of stories about this from both the right and the left perspectives, but the basic issue is this:

A rancher in Nevada had been allowing his cattle to graze on public land for years, generations.  Until 1993, he paid his grazing fees to the government.  In 1993, he stopped paying those fees, but continued to let his cattle graze.  He now owes the U.S. government.. us, you, me, your family and friends.. over a million bucks in fees.  The federal government has taken him to court and he has lost those cases; as he refuses to pay up, the feds got the right to take his cattle and sell them for back fees.  Bundy got the word out, and the anti-government "militia" people came by the hundreds to "support" him against the "jack-booted federal government".  The federal government has now backed up, fearful of someone getting shot or seriously hurt, but I'm sure there will be a Plan B, C, or D.

I post the following with one caveat:  The Republican Party itself does NOT seem to be directly encouraging people to take up arms in this particular situation, but most of the people involved in these militias do appear to support the Republicans and their extreme candidates.

From the folks at Occupy Public Office, perhaps shared from elsewhere, as I can't read the credit in the left corner.  That word on the top line should be "something" (of course):

Vote Them Out of Office! Period!

For the past 40 years Congressional Republicans, well-organized and financed by the Koch brothers and a few other mega-rich guys, have created chaos in the country and in the government.  They caused the recession, forced the sequester on us, and shut the government down --according to the plans designed by these Koch brothers.  Do not be blinded by Koch money under the subtle disguise of Jeb Bush, Issa's scandals, patriotism, Christianity, "prosperity", paid experts, think tanks, unrelenting corporate-owned media, or 5+ years of Fox News' 24/7 propaganda.  Understand the impact of the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, 5 Republican Supreme Court justices, 30 Republican governors with gerrymandered districts and voter suppression. 

The GOP-TP has conned enough Americans that they believe they can actually take over government AGAIN and again pillage our country (despite the damage done by two unfunded wars).  They believe they can legislate their twisted morality; they believe they can (with the help of Lyin' Paul Ryan's austerity budget) privatize the three trillion-dollar Social Security system, voucherize Medicare, cut food stamps, end job programs, repeal without replacement OBAMACARE (52 times),  establish MORE  tax giveaways for the rich and MORE loopholes for corporations-- And then claim all of this is done in the name of "Liberty, national security and job creation". 

American, how can you be so blind as to not see what they are up to? How easily you forget GWB's financial crisis, nationwide and worldwide, which resulted in more than 25 million jobless Americans struggling for survival? Republicans hate Americans; they hate real Americans who work everyday and raise their families.. struggling to get by even as their wages, jobs, and benefits are cut.  Republicans worship money and hide it in the Cayman Islands-- not to mention many other things that Republicans do that you and I don't know about.  

Vote them out of office!  All of them!  Period!!
