Federalism and who OWNS State land

We need more work opportunities in this country. All production begins with working the land, i.e. mining, drilling, farming, all of which are ways to extract from the land materials with which we create what we need. We have a problem, though. The least productive entity in the country, The Federal Government owns and controls most of our land BUT DOES NOT PRODUCE ANYTHING from it. Why is that? 

Investors know that control of assets (that which puts money into your pocket) is vital to growth. They also understand the difference between ownership and control. A qualified investor often cares not who owns a property, i.e. the bank, as long as s/he controls the property. Investors also know that buildings are liabilities in and of themselves; they cost money to maintain. Land, however, is the asset because of what it produces. The land has life/growth in it.

In the eastern States, the States own and control up to 98% of the land within their borders with individual land holders paying their annual rents (taxes) to the land owner - the government. In the western states, however, such as Utah and Nevada, the States own only 33% (Utah) and about 15% (Nevada). The Federal government owns and controls 67% and 85% of these western State lands and does nothing productive with that land. NO PROSPERITY THERE!

I believe it is now time for our Utah State elected representatives, both on the State and on the Federal levels to inform the Federal bureaus that Utah will be taking ownership and control of the land within its borders. This is a time to provide Utahns the tools, i.e. the property and materials from it, with which we will produce all that is needed. The State of Utah government must obtain Utah land and then distribute it to productive, private entities, be they persons or legal companies, via sales and also by the reinstatement of Homestead Laws. 
Click here for a few thoughts on the subject, dated May 2009.
When the people control the land there will be work, growth, productivity, prosperity and abundance. Without the land, the people are left in the same position as most Europeans - non-land owners, wage earning tenants, vassals at the mercy of their Lords (landLords), Barons and Landed Gentry.

This is AMERICA, where the American Dream of land ownership still lives. Our elected representatives must know the time for Utahns to own their land is NOW. This goes for all the western states.

PLEASE CALL, WRITE, EMAIL, SKYPE YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY AND ASSOCIATES, ALSO ALL OF OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES. 
TELL THEM NOW IS THE TIME TO GET UTAH LAND BACK TO HER SO HER CHILDREN MAY WORK AND PROSPER.
Go with God. Providence emPowers the Persistent.
