The Democrats Plan To Nationalize Land! Democratic Socialism In Action

The feds do a miserable job managing the 640 million acres they already own. The National Park Service has a maintenance backlog of $12 billion. The Forest Service spent more than $2 billion last year fighting blazes that destroyed 8.7 million acres—much of it poorly managed federal forestland.

In March President Trump signed legislation that permanently reauthorized the LWCF, which means Congress will no longer be taking a fresh look at priorities and value on an occasional basis. Making its funding permanent would compound that legislative abdication. Congress is supposed to make annual judgments about what the fund needs, and its average size over the past 15 years is about $360 million a year. Providing bureaucrats a guaranteed $900 million annually is a stipend far beyond need.

Requiring annual appropriations would let Congress redirect more money to upkeep and to improving access to existing lands. Senate Republicans should insist that the LWCF money be devoted to maintenance until the government better manages its current holdings.

Some Republicans like that the fund improves local and state recreation areas. Others claim the federal purchase of private land helps agencies maintain existing parks and forests. Fair enough, but then approve it each year instead of putting more federal spending on automatic. Congress’s job is to review the programs it creates, not outsource judgments to bureaucrats working with special interests.




It always comes back to land doesn't it. Private ownership of land is the foundation of a free society, this is stealth project that has been in motion for years using environmental protection as a guise. I remember reading about it during the Clinton era, its still steamrolling along.

What can we do to stop it?

  

Arguing logic with a leftist is like administering medicine to the dead. They exist to be defeated, and they never consoled when their self inflicted ruin occurs.

Our government is so big only super pacs and corporations can affect change.
It will never happen, but removing those is the only hope... Or a revolution, which is unlikely at a national level required to do so.

   We own 12 acres of jack rabbit land very close to the Tule Elk oil reserve, somewhat near Baskerfield, CA.  We sign leases about every 15 years with one drilling company or another.
   And!, we get offers about every five years from one environmental group or another to buy said land.  These groups are all over California making offers and occasionally acquiring land.  They immediately go in, do studies, make determinations, and package their acquisitions to sell to . . . ? . . . you got it! The Fed!!  Whatever amount they paid it usually is two, three, four times as much for the Feds (or State) to buy it. 
     Like the vagrants known as the homeless, land acquisition is a cottage industry.
