This makes my blood boil. In a much smaller scale – at present – it is a bit like Russia vs. Crimea/Ukraine. It is an over reach of the US Government against the citizens of the USA. If you saw Fox’s program “Enemies of the State” fits the bill. We continually see the Federal Government doing continued over-reach of it’s powers and begins to border on tyranny of the people instead of a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
In the middle of the article you can click to see a video of what was happening as videoed by many individuals also by TV Channel 8 in Nevada. The Governor has also spoken out against this over-reach and its trampling the rights of the citizens of Nevada and violating the US and Nevada Constitutions. As seen on the video, after tasering some protesters and sicing dogs on them, they realized that the people knew their rights and the Feds fled the scene.
It is a sad thing when we are seeing the US Government that had, in the 1700’s fighting for the rights of the people, now having to be the ones who are now in the same position as the English were in opposition to the colonists.
When in the Course of human Events it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent Respect of the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impelled them to the Separation.
WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness – That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed,
“… That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive to these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shown, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security.” THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
