This is a far more complex issue than many of the posters here will even try to understand. There are more than two sides to this story. The Rancher, Bundy, did not decide to suddenly go rogue 20 years ago (after his family had toiled on the land for over a century) – there are arguments on both sides of this issue, yet most will sit contentedly behind their party line and simplify the issue to a few easy to understand sound bites. I think it boils down to states rights and how powerful the federal government should be, but even that is an over-siplification. One thing for sure, it doesn’t have anything to do with some desert turtle.
