The country seems to be spiraling out of control these days as greedy, corrupt and selfish politicians whore our nation for their own benefit, but it seems as though not everyone is willing to take it laying down. Following in the steps of Cliven Bundy, one Utah County has put forth a resolution refusing to recognize federal agents.
The news comes out of Carbon County – a chunk of land on the eastern side of Utah – just unanimously passed the resolution on June 4. The officials signing the document made sure to specifically list the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and completely outlaw it from within their prospective borders.
According to the resolution:
“Accordingly, the Board of Commissioners of Carbon County declares publicly in the interest of the health, safety and welfare of its citizens, that Carbon County does not recognize any attempt by a federal official to try to enforce state or local criminal or civil laws on any lands in Carbon County, including any BLM and Forest Service lands in Carbon County… including federal lands.”
“Any such attempted exercise of law enforcement powers by an official of a land management agency IS NOT RECOGNIZED by Carbon County and shall be deemed AN IMMINENT THREAT TO THE HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELFARE OF THE CITIZENS OF CARBON COUNTY.”
It seems that as big government continues to inflate itself to the point of self-justified illegalities that some are doing their best to fight back. In an effort to avoid an almost inevitable revolution, this seems to be the last station before the end of the tracks.
After all, declaring your Federal government has no power within your borders, which just so happens to be within the confines of not only the state but the nation, seems a sure way to burn a bridge not easily rebuilt. What do you guys think – is this a necessary step while fighting against a government seemingly uncaring whether or not their actions fall within the law? Let us know in the comments below.
