There are many opinions on the Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his battle with the federal government. Some folks think that regardless of whether Bundy thinks he should or should not pay the feds his fees, if he doesn’t, then he is a free loader, or that because his speech is not PC enough, we should ostracize him completely and negate his property concerns. Others, who feel that the federal government has no business owning massive amounts of what should be state owned lands, are just grateful that FINALLY someone has brought attention to the loss of state sovereignty, property rights infringement, and the heavy hand (can you say thugocracy?) of the feds. All that said, I highly recommend that you read the explanation of Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution known as the Enclave clause which authorizes Congress to purchase, own and control land in a state only under a specific set of limited circumstances by clicking on this link.
