Think about his actions; and imagine what would have happened if the exact same situation occurred, only he and his group were Muslims. Even if they were urban gangsters, Black or Hispanic or whatever they may be. You can't threaten government officials with guns, get your property back when you owe the American people over $1m, and remain a free citizen unless you're a prominent old white man? Or is there something I'm missing? What exactly defines a terrorist these days, and is Cliven Bundy one?

Great response! Thanks for taking the time.
The cops or "officials" showing up with weapons and threatening violence is how the law works. Any group or individual who breaks the law can expect armed men to show up, that's life.
Rest is true though
It's true that law enforcement will always be armed, but the calling in of armored vehicles, helicopters, heavily armed SWAT officers, etc... was uncalled for. It's the Bureau of Land Management, not the Marines.
Haha, fair enough point. Well received.
Thanks for discussing this in a civil manner.
Cliven Bundy is an example of what we may see more of as the Government gets more autocratic. People are losing their rights. The Bundy story turns out to be one where Sen. Harry Reid's son had a financial stake. Why should we give-up our rights?
Very true indeed.
