R.I.P. LaVoy Finicum

This blog offers condolences to the family and friends of Mr.LaVoy Finicum. 

It has been the policy of this blogger to refrain from offering political opinions or other analysis while offering condolences. But the death of Mr. Finicum is different. It is different because this is not just the death of a rancher, but an unmistakable symptom of the decay of the character of the citizens of America,

While there will be many deconstructing the events around his death, the truth is that he was killed because we have allowed our government to become tyrannical. 

 Were it not so, peaceful protesters would have been allowed to be occupying  this property for as long as it took to resolve the constitutional issues at hand. They were not threatening the lives of anyone. They were not damaging the property. Their stated reason for seizing that property was Constitutionally valid. While I may not have agreed with their choice of actions, I respected their wish to support and maintain the US Constitution, because that protects my liberty as well as their own.

Having watched Pete Santilli's live feed for a while, it is clear that many of the people of this nation are no longer in possession of the necessary character needed to maintain the form of government set up by our founders. The sheer juvenile nature of some of the comments regarding the death of an intrinsically valuable and unique human being, one who was willing to give his life in support of their own liberty - liberty, not license - was appalling. Their ignorance of the constitution is appalling. Their lack of respect for life is appalling.

Their lack of ability to look at the situation and disagree respectfully out of some sense of decorum and respect for the dead is unacceptable.

 My apologies to the family and friends of Mr. Finicum for offering this opinion where it does not belong. Again, you have my condolences. May the Lord guide us because we are lost.

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." ~ Ephesians 6:12-13
