letter to the editor:

Bundy should read state constitution

Cliven Bundy says he does not recognize the federal government, only the laws of Nevada. Somebody should acquaint him with the following excerpt from the Nevada Constitution:

Article 1, Section 2: “... The Paramount Allegiance of every citizen is due to the Federal Government in the exercise of all its Constitutional powers ... and no power exists in the people of this or any other state of the Federal Union to dissolve their connection therewith or perform any act tending to impair subvert, or reside the Supreme Authority of the government of the United States. ... And whensoever any portion of the States, or people thereof attempt to secede from the Federal Union, or forcibly resist the execution of its laws, the Federal Government may, by warrant of the Constitution, employ armed force in compelling obedience to its Authority.”
