SEN. RAND PAUL: I think there’s an opposite thing to what Harry Reid said, and that’s that the federal government shouldn’t violate the law. Nor should we have 48 federal agencies carrying weapons and having SWAT teams.

Cruz is 100% is correct. There is no need for brown shirts in a free society. That is what the FBI is for. This is where the communists take over a government and dictatorship start. The maximum weapon should be a side arm for certain agencies for public protection for these 48 agencies.

It’s becoming obvious the Bundy’s have the huge majority of the American people supporting them...Watch for talk show invites...

No doubt all kinds of politicians running for office will try to fly into the ranch wearing flannel shirts, for hand shaking photos with the Bundy’s....cow branding photo ops..Followed by steak dinners.

Then again the BLM could hold a swat style night raid operation at the ranch and slaughter them and all their supports who are camped out.

Hooray for Rand!

Rory Reid in an interview decrying the rule of law against Bundy proclaiming, “you can’t just have anarchy.”

My question to the Reids, You have been supporting anarchy since the 08 election and enabling it, with picking and choosing which laws to enforce. Tell me how weaponizing and creating Obama Brownshirts out of all of our goverment agencies is’nt tyranny!

A country cannot exist without the of law, but even if Bundy is grazing on public land, there is no harm being done. There may be a violation of a regulation here, but the libertarian in me says the BLM should “just look the other way”. If every federal rule violator were held to the same standard there woudln’t be an empty courtroom or jail cell in the country.

Farmers and ranchers were the first “environmentalists” after all - there’s nothing that sharpens your awareness of the land than to depend on it for your very existence. So, Mr. Bundy isn’t damaging the public land, he’s not committing any crime, he’s just disobeying a federal rule that was created by a bureaucrat in Washington DC. Regulations have to be balanced with equity and common sense.

The U.S. already jails more people than any other country, let's take it all the way!

Well that’s because most of those countries just kill people rather than bother putting them in jail.

First politician to publically stand on the side of liberty; that takes some brass ones. Dems and GOPe will likely work even harder to smear him now. I hope Ted joins him, imo they are the only two who are really serious about reducing the scope and power of the federal government, which should be priority one for any presidential candidate.

Rand gets right to the point on this one.

I wonder how many so-called conservatives on here are going to attack Rand Paul because they are more supportive of military intervention overseas than they are in conservative principles regarding avoidance of foreign entanglements.

Yep. Like Buchanan, those that put America first are relentlessly bashed.
