The Face of Our Nation


The right wing extremist nationalists that were involved in the Bundy occupation in Oregon are not the martyrs holier than thou freedom-loving believers they clam to be. They are violent gun loving gun toting white nationalists whose fanatical anti-government beliefs make them a threat to our nation as was a Timothy McVeigh. They are killers and we DO have a federal government. The federal government is not the enemy because there are channels one can work through to perfect change.

Further, there are lands that are so beautiful, filled with threatened wildlife necessary to our ecosystem which should be off limits to private ownership or commercial development that would eradicate all life in it. The Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, the Grand Tetons, Cape Cod National Seashore and Yosemite are but a few examples of federally protected land. These right wing extremists cannot be allowed to usurp these priceless natural creations that should be federally protected and controlled.

Without a strong federal government we are 50 states of national anarchy left to do as each one wishes ruining not only land but tromping on the true civil rights of those who deserve it. Moreover, there are times when FDR-type leadership is needed to ensure a strong federal government step in when human beings and the institutions they create step out of control and if so a strong preemptive federal government must restore a fair and just peace that should be the face of our nation.
