And that's just the short list.
Give those "back" to the states and the process thereafter is inevitable.
- Budget looks bad for the new state capitol building and a brace of choppers for the State Police? No need to sell bonds or raise taxes. Sell part (or all) of the park!
- Alaska does great with its oil deal, so why not sell off a couple of our parks to the oil guys and give our citizens a "tax bonus"? Automatic re-election!
- We in the decorative timber industry would sure like to have some a' that straight grain, lightweight redwood! The bottom line's just waitin', along with the campaign donations! (Sell Sequoia National Park. I mean, who'll notice?)
Earlier Presidents and Congresses have helped to assure that "America the Beautiful" remains so. The states? I wouldn't trust any individual state with that heritage.
And it wouldn't make any difference to Cliven Bundy. He'd just keeping slopping at the government trough either way.
