      If this is really the case (and I suspect it is) then our nation needs to have a serious public debate about the culture and priorities of federal law enforcement agencies. Perhaps Harry Reid should begin the Congressional investigation, since he was the one who made a point of calling Bundy a domestic terrorist.

      I'm done with just accepting as a given that the government serves the right wing and crushes its boot on the face of the liberal.

      If Democratic politicians accept this situation, rather than seeking to change it through the channels available to them (e.g. a Senate investigation of FBI priorities), then they are complicit in allowing the rule of law to be undermined.

      The most serious problem in American politics today is that people with wrong ideas are uncompromising, and people with good ideas are submissive and unwilling to fight. Change that, and we might have a real democracy again.
