A week after a tense standoff between gun-toting states’ rights advocates and federal Bureau of Land Management police, self-described militia members are still protecting Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his family.
Others, however, are taking a stand in the time-honored tradition of the Founding Fathers and Thomas Paine: by taking pen to paper to document their grievances against an overweening government.
Famed cowboy poet and Nevada rancher Waddie Mitchell, who spoke with Newsmax TV last week about the clash between Bundy and the BLM, has made the standoff the subject of his latest poem. He shared the piece, “A Call to All,” with Newsmax:
This poem is not about a cowman who refused to give up rights
Or how the Feds have treated him and started all these fights
And it’s not about what side I’m on for a tortoise or some fees
This is all about our government out doing as it please
