Senator Rand Paul says the siege against Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy is a perfect example of why Americans are getting increasingly angry at the federal government’s outrageous abuse of power.

During an appearance with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren last night, Paul cited the egregious nationwide enforcement of the Endangered Species Act, which is only serving to enflame tensions. One of the reasons cited by the Bureau of Land Management to justify the seizure of Bundy’s cattle was that his cows were harming the endangered desert tortoise.

“That kind of absurdity coming from the federal government is why people get angry, said the Kentucky Senator, adding, “They charge homeowners or property owners in Kentucky money to chop down our trees if they find a bat on the land. So really, this needs to be administered closer to home so we wouldn’t have, I think, such outrageous overstepping by authorities.”

“Even if he paid his grazing fees back in 1993, they weren’t going to let him — they were going to limit the number of his cattle and limit his area to graze. So as a lot of people know about the West, you have to have a lot of acreage to graze cattle. So I think they were limiting it and he felt it wasn’t their right to do so. There is real debate where whether this land should be owned by the federal government or state government,” said Paul.
