Reflecting on Being at the Battle of Bunkerville.
I was there. I witnessed pure bureaucratic terrorism in action. I witnessed the beauty of friends, brothers, fathers, mothers, sisters and veterans ready to die standing for the law of liberty. I saw grown men weep for America and for the pure patriotism of this brave stand.
For the first time in my life, I saw first hand what America was framed on. I saw the prayers, I saw the fear and I saw the less than perfect. I saw human nature and egos. I saw a few that were too eager for blood, but even more than understood the stakes. I saw what happens when people rally together to defend their neighbors against violent criminals.
The government was there for blood. They were there to terrorize, to hurt and ultimately, to kill. We the people were there for peace. But we were willing to stand in defense of our friends. By God’s grace peace won the day.
After it all I find in myself little impatient for those who talk slander of those willing to die for their liberty. I understand what veterans feel when they come home to people who do not appreciate their courage. I have seen twisting of words and outright lies coming from media. I feel frustration for those who ignore the law, refuse to study history, reject the Constitution and say that justice is defined by men who wear badges, rather than by the God of the Universe and our inherent right to liberty and justice. But my job is to communicate and represent.
Some are honestly confused – Yes, I also saw first hand how polluted and corrupt our news has become. I encourage everyone to look for the facts, ask those that were there and find the truth of liberty and justice. That is what happened here at the Bundy Ranch. The federal government was ignoring the grazing rights the Bundy’s owned on the BLM land, they were assaulting protestors, rustling cattle and violating the law at nearly every turn. But we stood together. We were brothers and sisters of varied backgrounds and creeds who all had a passion for liberty.
I have more to share about what happened, as do the brave patriots that were there with me. We’ll get that message out and I’ll continue to keep a clear message of liberty both now and when I am in office. I will keep moving forward in our campaign. We’re doing more with less than our opponents and stretching every dollar, but we still need help. If you want representatives in Congress like myself that communicate, that are willing to stand with you, please consider helping our campaign.
Finally I want to raise a salute to the many patriots who stood firm the ground and at home. To my brother Nathan, to Anthony Bosworth, Matt Shea, Dave Taylor, Scott, Josh, Pastor Barry and Ann Byrd and others from our Washington groups, Moses Lake and beyond. To the many more from around America. To the wives, families and friends back at home praying with all their might that blood would not spill. To those helping with supplies and necessities. This was a rally for America and it marks a pivotal moment in our history.
It’s far from over and you can be a part of it. A group has been formed to rally patriots, statesman and legislators from around America who will stand for liberty. It’s called the Coalition of Western States. Something great was started here. A movement of Americas willing to stand with their neighbors. To stand against lawless government actions and to say no to tyranny.
Also myself and others who were on the ground will start doing events where people can learn first hand about the stand made in Bunkerville and why it matters so much. You can join my newsletter below to get updates from me.
This is our time. We must stand if we wish to avoid bloodshed and total tyranny. If we wish to preserve liberty for our children – Liberty is not the fringe. Liberty is the foundation.
