On the ongoing standoff at the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville, Harry Reid told a Las Vegas TV station:
“It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.”
Is this the same Harry Reid who simply ignored the law of the land and cut funding for Yucca Mountain? Is the Harry Reid who let Obama change the ObamaCare law of the land 40 times without the consent of Congress? Is this the Harry Reid who told Obama to ignore Congress and raise the debt ceiling? Is this the Harry Reid who broke the rules of the Senate to end the filibuster on certain nominations? Is the same Harry Reid who used that filibuster rule to confirm a Homeland Security nominee he had strong armed for a Las Vegas hotel? Never mind immigration laws.
As rancher Wayne Hage once testified before Congress:
“It is warming to know that with regard to the Courts that we still have the Rule of Law. Although as I have found out it is nearly impossible to defend a persons property and rights in the courts due to the financial burdens and the length of time involved. (My Mother and Father filed the original case and were not able to live long enough to see the end of the litigation. My step Mother died before there was an end to the litigation and it is looking like my siblings and I may be in old age before this is concluded.) However there it is becoming very apparent that there is no rule of law with regard to the employs of the BLM, USFS and perhaps the DOJ, there we have the rule of man. I remind congress that Aristotle explained that the difference between a correct form of government and perverse form of government is that the former is the Rule of Law and the latter is the rule of man.”
