Four militants remain inside the refuge; 11 have been arrested and charged, including the Bundy brothers Ammon and Ryan. Only Robert “LaVoy” Finicum made good on his promise to die rather than submit to the federal government. But if “the tree of liberty is watered by the blood of patriots” — the militia movement's favorite Jefferson quote — then Finicum's death is exactly the sort of martyrdom that law enforcement hoped to avoid and didn't. Now is a good time to ask: What exactly did he die for? http://www.amazon.com/review/R1125ATC1K06PA Like the Bible, read the source material yourself, and avoid the mental gymnastics and personal apologetics of extremists., January 29, 2016 By Bill This review is from: Pocket Constitution (Text from the U.S. Bicentennial Commission Edition) (Paperback) As others have noted, this is not merely a pocket Constitution. It includes the insane ramblings of W. Cleon Skousen. He is in no way an expert in Constitutional law or American history. He was an end times Mormon conspiracy crank who merely inserts his personal delusions alongside. This has led to many people who are too lazy to read the Constitution themselves and learn the history, to take his personal beliefs as fact. It has led to a great many people thinking they can take over government property, and even more stupid people supporting them. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/28/us/lavoy-finicum-protester-killed-in-oregon.html?_r=1 JOHN DAY, Ore. — A week into the armed occupation of a wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon, LaVoy Finicum, an Arizona rancher and father of 11 who became a de facto spokesman for the protesters, took a seat in the compound and contemplated how the standoff might end for him. “I’m not going to end up in prison,” said Mr. Finicum, 54, who often appeared at news conferences wearing a broad cowboy hat on his head and a sidearm on his hip. “I would rather die than be caged. And I’ve lived a good life.” Supporters of the anti-government occupiers identified Mr. Finicum as the man who was shot and killed by law enforcement on Tuesday as the group’s leader, Ammon Bundy, his brother Ryan and other protesters were arrested after being stopped on a rural highway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOGEyBeoBGM
