Federal Land Mismanagement

More than 50 years ago Bernard DeVoto uttered perhaps the truest statement ever made with respect to the public lands and the rural West; the actual western view of the place of the federal government, DeVoto explained, is: “Go away and give us more money.”

Robert H. Nelson, Our Languishing Public Lands, Policy Review, February & March 2012.

The quote from Bernard DeVoto, unfortunately, is both accurate and damning. The Wyoming Republican Party, in its platform and resolutions, consistently asks for both. Yet the federal government, increasingly dysfunctional, will not go away, and cannot give the western states more money. What, then, to do? Drop the second demand, perhaps?

Congressmen had been hammered over the past week with emails, tweets and other social media communications from their local grassroots organizations asking them to vote against HR5.

Overwhelming Debt

Would you be willing to give 39.7 percent of your paycheck to the federal government? That is what it would cost to fully fund the federal government at its current spending levels if everyone in the U.S. paid at a flat tax rate.1

Stop to consider that for a second: 39.7 percent; if your home earns the median household income in Wyoming, $56,573 as of 2013, you would pay roughly $22,450 in taxes and have $34,123 left to live on.
