Editor’s Comment: Will this latest action, taken by Obama quietly as if in stealth, once again provoke a revolutionary response? It appears that the very land that activists swore the federal government was just trying to take in order to occupy lucrative and mineral rich deposits is indeed highly coveted by President Obama’s faction, at least enough that he wanted it off limits to the patriot upstarts that created not one but two standoffs on the exiting-president’s watch.
The abuse of government power over private property, especially by one individual, is part and parcel of the historical reasons for revolutions, bills of rights and new forms of government.
As Obama prepares to finish his last three weeks in office as a lame duck, it is clear that he is intent on damaging as much of the country as he possibly can, and on clamping down on those who still thirst for independence and freedom. His legacy will be more tyrannical than his cool demeanor and broad smile typically suggest.
