Fewer and fewer people (who aren't already dependent on the feds for their livelihood) believe that anymore.
Daily, the numbers are dropping.
The actions of park rangers and other minions of the Feds show that they will follow orders, no matter how stupid.
People are beginning to realize that the government and the federal personnel no longer believe themselves to be servant of the citizens, but rather the other way around....master of the citizens. They believe that the citizens are subject their whim. Many of us knew that, but now, Joe average-low-information-voter is realizing it. and that is bad for the State.
They have forgotten that they govern only by the consent of the governed.
Bad precedents being set here. Not for us....for them.
