Does the Constitution authorize the Federal Government to have a national forest within the confines of a state? No. This is not included in the list of territories which the federal government is allowed to occupy with the consent of the state. (See Article I, Section 8, Clause 17) The Supreme Court had to distort the Constitution to justify it. Historically, the states have had fewer forest fires and have maintained the state forests on a higher level than the national forests.
Which states were strong-armed into accepting statehood without being admitted on an equal footing? All of the Western States and Alaska.
Are any of these states attempting to get this land back? Yes. The press has labelled this effort the "Sagebrush Rebellion," but it is not a rebellion. These states are simply following the legal and Constitutional procedures necessary to have this land turned back to them. What About Locking Up State Territory As Wilderness Areas?
In what way were they forced to accept statehood unequally? Large regions of these states were retained by the Federal Government for purposes not authorized by the Constitution in Article I, Section 8, Clause 17. About how much of the land did the Federal Government usually withhold from these states? The government retained around 50% of the land in most Western States, but 79% of Nevada and 96% of Alaska.
Shouldn't all of the states have been admitted to the Union on an equal basis? Yes. This was set forth by Congress in the Northwest Ordinance of 1787.
Should the Bureau of Land Management be abolished? Yes. This bureau has been rapidly phasing out the traditional grazing rights of ranchers and setting up impossible regulations on land which should have been turned over to the states when they were admitted into the Union.

In view of America's tremendous national debt, why do we continue giving foreign aid to over a 125 countries? This whole procedure violates the Constitution and common sense. What started out as part of the defense program in the interest of the United States has turned into an international Santa Claus give-away program, similar to the extravagant give-away programs at home. Tens of billions given away each year automatically add to the national debt.
