There is something much deeper brewing under the surface in the United States. This showdown was just a catalyst.
It wasn't the greatest atrocity of the decade or even of the year. I wish people had felt this moved by the NSA's domestic spying program, or the secret kill list, or the drone program, or the Libyan war, or the Iraq war or the Afghan war. I wish people had been activated by something bigger than the plight of a cattle rancher.
Why this event.. There have been others like it but nothing like this has ever happened.. Why is this event special.. I want to know what made these people think this Clide Bundy guy was worth dying for.. I want to know what drove these people to go down there and defend this guy.. With all the things that happened in the last say 15 yrs I would say the American Public should be pissed and rightfully so
