If they can get away with it with this bill, then with this mind set and narrow vision of their responsibilities to the state and other potential life changing bills that could and are in the works to better our life styles and cultures, be it native or any other nationality, ignored and allowed to be out voted once again, leaving us with nothing but what land we live on if any at all and being surrounded by nothing but national parks and complete government controlled lands. If once again they speak of our right to use or occupy any lands that they have deemed national parks, what then will we have?
We will be living out our lives in a environment run by the government that has this ill fated perspective of what we can do or not do in our own back yard. Picture this,you are now living in the after math of the out voted S.881 and the government now has total control over every piece of land that once was thought of as the "Land of the last frontier" is now the land of "Do Not Trespass" posted on everything as well as the remote beaches and once thought of serene areas for public use is now a national park now owned by the federal government and we cannot even go out for a picnic on our own beaches or hunt or fish in certain specific areas unless we wish to violate the laws they have formed to keep us off our own lands we once lived so freely on.
If you're not careful our own
decisions can be turned on us and be used against us, just as
the government has done for such a long time already, not everything
we allow too happen will be good for everyone, but a good for
the many over all it's a stepping stone in the direction in which
our state is taking to ensure they or no other outside entity
will force you or I to be forced out of our own culture or life
style or homes regardless if it's the government or any other
