Waco Siege vs Bundy Ranch: That Was Then, This Is Now!

Many of us are old enough to remember watching in horror as the US government, using US military equipment, surrounded a group of Americans in Waco, Texas, with SWAT teams, helicopters, armored vehicles, and even a tank. Then watching as that compound burned to the ground, knowing that there were innocent women and children losing their lives right before our eyes. Most of us desperately wanted to believe that their actions were justified, that there was some perfectly legitimate reason why those innocents died. Then the facts started to come out and the terrible truth was revealed.  That’s the day that so many of us came to the awful realization that these things can happen in America, and that our government is capable of such atrocities. And many vowed back then, Never Again. Never again would we sit back and do nothing while our own government surrounded and laid siege to American citizens.
Fast forward to the latest siege, this time the Bundy Ranch. Once again Americans were surrounded by their own government. Armed federal agents came pouring in to Nevada. But this time, their actions wouldn’t go unanswered. Americans responded by the hundreds, and traveled to Nevada to ensure the government force didn’t result in yet another government sanctioned massacre. The government did everything it could to keep the facts from getting out, even shutting down cell towers in the area, setting up an official “free speech” area, and attacking peaceful protestors.
And we won! Federal agents have left the area in defeat, surrendering to both the public outcry and the presence of fellow Americans standing watch over and recording their actions. UK’s Daily Mail Online has done amazing coverage of the entire siege, including many great photos of everyday Americans taking a stand. It will make you want to stand and cheer!
Take notice federal government! We’ve learned our lessons well. We’ve never forgotten the innocent blood that was needlessly shed in Waco, Texas. Now it’s time for you to learn your lesson.. Your days of unanswered armed aggression against US citizens are over.
