Cliven Bundy needs a civics class.
You can have Red States remove voting booths, reduce voting times, make it harder to vote on every level and Republicans never mention rights or oppressive government.
But ask a fat-cat rancher who has been mooching off government land for 20 years and Conservatives question the existence of the United States.

Further context: The land is federal land, has been since 1848. By his own admission his “ancestral claim” only goes back to 1877. So when his ancestors started grazing their cattle on that land, it had already been federal land for 29 years.

The Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco / open to pedestrian traffic only, during its opening in May 1937 (top) and on its 50th anniversary in May 1987 (bottom).

In 1987, the weight of the 300,000 people that crossed the bridge caused it to sag by 5 feet.

My dad and I were watching it live on TV and he had to assure me that the bridge wouldn’t break or collapse.
