Other landowners could use support

I have a curiosity about the Bundy supporters. They were calling out for his rights to have his cattle graze on public land without paying for it.

Why are they not in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma or Texas helping the landowners there? Why would these landowners need their help? To keep Keystone and Embridge from taking their land to built pipelines on. At least these hundreds of farmers actually own the land, unlike Bundy, who just steals the use of the land from all of us.

These people are not even getting a choice when a private company comes in and condemns their land for their own gain. Condemned under the auspices that it is for the public’s good to build a pipeline.
