Hold Cliven Bundy and his domestic terrorists accountable

This borders on, if not crosses over into, actual insurrection. If the federal government allows it to continue without prosecution it will only embolden these faux 'patriots' and eventually lead to exactly the type of bloodbath they want. Hold them accountable to the same laws the rest of us must obey. From the Daily Kos:

Sign the petition demanding that the federal government collect every cent that deadbeat, domestic terrorist Cliven Bundy owes to the American people, and to prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law. Click here to add your name.

Deadbeat rancher Cliven Bundy has become a right-wing hero for disavowing the United States government, ignoring court orders, illegally using public lands for personal gain (for over 20 years!), and staging an intense stand-off between armed “militia” members and the federal agents. That standoff ended with the federal agents backing off in the interest of public safety.

But the story doesn’t end there. Right-wing media have latched on to this story, painting Bundy as a hero and his right-wing “militia” as patriots. But he’s not a patriot. He’s a deadbeat who formed a gang of armed thugs to get out of paying the government money which he owed to the people of the United States for illegally using public lands for private gain.

Sign the petition to the federal government: Collect every cent deadbeat Cliven Bundy owes to the people of the United States.

Keep fighting,
Chris Bowers, Daily Kos
