THIS IS SO COOL! FINALLY a president who recognizes a national land grab of epic proportions when he sees it!
For the first time ever the Department of Interior is calling for a review of all National Monuments, including Marine National Monuments, containing over 100,000 acres AND they are encouraging the public to weigh in.
This article provides a list of National Monuments that will be reviewed and their acreage. You will be amazed at the number of acres represented in this list-and this is not a total list of all National Monuments. The article also provides all the information you need to provide your comments. It also validates that it is the job of the federal government to allow the citizen to help shape policy; particularly when the citizens’ property rights are caught in the cross-hairs, in this case, of the Antiquities Act.
The article does not make it clear if citizens who are not directly impacted should chime in or not. This is concerning because it is likely various powerful and politically motivated environmental groups, like the Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy, etc. will be doing everything in their power to Delphi the process. For this reason I urge all of you to, at the least, send in general comments such as “without strong property rights in America, we will be deprived of a strong economy and the ability to be self-reliant”.
This is yet another opportunity provided to the citizen by the Trump Administration to restore America. To take advantage of this opportunity read this article by clicking on this link.
