Utah Starts The Eminent Domain Argument With The Feds

State Rep. Carl Wimmer (R) of the PatrickHenryCaucus.com (Utah Legislature) on the bills that Gov. Herbert has signed seizing federal lands.  I do believe that America is now awake.

Utah governor signs bills to seize federal land

Salt Lake City – Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert has signed two bills authorizing the state to use eminent domain to seize some of the federal government’s most valuable land.

Supporters hope the bills, which the Republican governor signed Saturday, will trigger a flood of similar legislation throughout the West and, eventually, a Supreme Court battle that they hope to win — against long odds.

More than 60% of Utah is owned by the U.S. government, and policymakers complain that federal ownership hinders their ability to generate tax revenue and adequately fund public schools. Governments use eminent domain to take private property for public use.

  • Go Utah! From the looks of that map, Nevada would be well served to do the same. Looks like the Feds own everything except Vegas and Reno…

    This is exactly what must happen; the states must all wake up and take their power back! The big benefit states like Utah will find is a large influx of patriotic Americans wanting to live there. It will boost their economy in many ways.

    • I could not believe that map when I saw it. The power grab to maintain control of the last few reserves of resources is astounding.

    We’re on our way to taking our country back. More states are going to demand their sovereignty and give less power to the federal government, which is the way it is supposed to be. If we could just get congress to support it. We have to elect legislators who realize that they are working for their constituents and have our best interests at heart. It’s going to be a long uphill battle.

    Patriots, I’m beginning to believe that we are the sheople that Obama and his sycophants speak of constantly. Obama, like Stalin and Hitler before him is using the same blueprint to take over America. Hitler and Salin both offered themselves as the Saviors of hope and change. Hitler , Stalin, and now Obama were all supposed to be the Messiahs of hope and change while hiding the monster within.

    Once these Socialist/Communist dictators get into power, like a terminal cancer he and his administration smother all dissent and take control of the economy, education, industry, healthcare, and the military.

    They create chaos while blaming it on anyone that stands against them.
    While we do nothing, Obama is using a tried and true blueprint for the destruction of the greatest country in the world.

    I just can’t believe we are falling for the same BS that destroyed Germany, Russia, and many other nations throughout the world. All Socialism and Communism have accomplished is slavery and death, and we are taking the bait hook, line and sinker.

    Patriots, I fear that the end is coming for America because Obama and his administration like any cancer can’t be removed by the voting process.

    Perhaps George Washington’s vision of a great battle for America may come true afterall, do we stand as Americans or bow as slaves to our new communist dictator, the time to choose is coming!

    I am a proud Utah citizen, we must do all we can to take our country back!!!!! Our government has taken over our lands and we don’t want that to happen. Our children deserve a good education and we are last in spending per child, yet our class sizes are larger than most states! It is a damn shame we have to fight the federal government for land they say belongs to all of us, but we cant use it.
    GO UTAH GO!!!!!
