Cliven Bundy's Trial Begins: Will Freedom Ring? Why The Stakes Are So High

• by Mac Slavo

In 2014, Bundy stood against the government and their out of control takeover of "public lands," and is accused of leading an armed standoff against federal agents.

The government's land grab isn't new, but it is an abuse of power.  And the second amendment was not written so people could hunt, but so that they may protect themselves against those who would abuse them; including their own government.  So there shouldn't really be a trial if this is truly the America we are told about.  But there is, and the stakes are high.  Will the jury see just how tyrannical the government has become and see Bundy for the freedom-fighter he had to become? Or will see a traitor who didn't want to pay the exorbitant fees levied on him for trying to exercise that freedom.

Jury selection began yesterday for the trial. Bundy, who is 71-years-old, along with two of his sons, Ammon and Ryan Bundy and independent militiaman Ryan Payne, are accused of assault on a federal officer, carrying firearms in relation to a crime and other felony conspiracy charges.
