    I stand corrected, I remember reading about that same case and explication.

    It really does wonder the mind how we ever came to think it ment simply being born in a US State.

    The power crazed nut-jobs that crammed thou the 14th amendment and the associated 1866 Civil Rights acts were to impassioned by their cause to take more care in insuring the effect they had intended.

    Honestly I don’t believe the 14th amendment was ever legitimately passed seeing as Ohio and other States retracted their ratification(After elections on the matter) prior to reaching the required 3/4th number only to have that retraction ignored by the The Federal Congress Counting the radifications.

    I also find it invalid because many of the necessary State ratification came from State legislators selected and operating under the guns of ‘union’ Soldures and not the free will of their people.

    “Why would we in Nevada want the Chinese to own 80+% of our state, with all the gold, silver, copper and rare earth minerals under ground?”

    1: The chineses have the money to buy it from the Feds.

    2: once the Chinese(Or anyone other than Washington) own it, the State of Nevada will start taxing & governing over it.

    It doesn’t really matter who own the title as long as its not Washington all owners are the same in being subject to Nevada law & taxes.

    Let the Chinese buy and develop the land if they got the money. They will have to be employing Nevadian to do the work and Nevada gets payed the same either way.

    You need to remember in Nevada China is just a private owner with no more rights or authority than anyone else.

    “They would put up fences denying any access and destroy the ground and send our riches to China.”
    Somehow I don’t think the State of Nevada will find that behavior lawful.

    “I believe it should be under State control with no payment not used to pay off federal debt to foreign nations”

    Your smoking weed if you think the east is going to give up the land for nothing, and that would be unfair seeing as the federal land in every eastern state was sold with money going to the U.S. treasury. Why should Nevada expect anything different?

    No, your goals must be the equal property to buy the land as Eastern States had to buy up and uses their own land.

    This is the case! Real scientist that have studyed our history have known it for a long time too.

    CO2 is a very weak Green house gas and we would need a hell of a lot more of it to sinficantly alter the composition of the earths atmosphere to make a diffrence.

    The real driver of Earth’s climate has always been the source of earth’s climate, the Sun. You know that big yellow Flaming Nuclear ball in the sky. It is not and never has been a Static thing. It goes thou cycles both large and small and it is in a constant state of change as it will be until the day it dies taking our little planet with it.

    In any even those who have studied human history or even the history of life on this earth know better than to fear a warmer climate. Right now our climate is relatively cold by Earth’s historic standards, and has been locked in a cycle of ice ages for millions of years.

    The case of this cycle is most likely the ismoth of pannama cutting off the heat flow between the Atlantic and passfic oceans. But that is geological history. What is also in geological history s a record that should teach any man that Cold is the real enemy of life & prosperity on this earth and always has been.

    We are presently in the middle of a intergalactic period, there have already been several of theses periods over the last few million years always followed by regularization of caring degrees and intensity.

    What your descendants should know however is that as it is, the Ice will return, and when it does the natural carrying capacity of the earth will drop to much less than the number now currently inhabiting the earth. This will happen over a long period of time thousands of years perhaps. But baring technological break-thou those years will not generally be favorable to our species.

    “I just disagree with the assumption that NV must pay to gain control over the 81% of the state now under control of the Feds. First, where will the money come from? State taxpayers? IMO the goal should be return of most of the federal land to the states without any requirement to purchase it. Is that too much to ask?”

    With 17 trillion dollars in federal dept that is a bit of a pipe dream. As for who pays for it, that is easy to answer, anyone who wants it.

    The State Government don’t need to own the land, as long as its not owed by the Federal Government the State can get tax revenue from it meaning anyone who does own the land won’t be able to horde it, or if they do they will at least pay the locals in taxes for the privilege.

    That means if Chinese business interest want it let them buy the title, and do what every they want as long as its legal under the State and local law. This is no different then them owning any other piece of property in the USA.

    Not one Nevada Tax payer dime needs to be spent, but trillions of tax payer dollars will be collected.

    “Right now, the federal government can sell or lease land to individuals and private investors.”

    That is the point, they can’t or rather they wont generally sell or lease the land, as they had prior to the 1970’s. Yes there are exceptions such as the acts you specified, often corrupt exceptions as Senator Harry Reid demonstrated.

    “I bet a lot of states, not just those in the West would like to get these lands under their control. I presume Congress can make this decision. Hopefully, it can be raised as an issue with a bill that could garner support.”

    That is unfortunately not the case, out east your talking less than 10% and the land the Feds do retain are simply not worthy of State or private attention in most cases.

    Indeed a lot of the lands in the west are even particularly valuable at this time, just as most of the lands the Feds now hold in the west weren’t particularity valuable.

    But populations grow and technology changes making lands once unworthy of buying valuable and needed again.

    What there is left in the East is only a small faction of the State, Yes no doubt a lot of eastern states would like to take management and tax control over some of it but not all.

    All the west really needs is the same right to buy the land the East has enjoyed for more than 200 years. It was the losing of this right in the 1970’s that started the sagebrush rebellion, and numerous other major economic obsticals in the west that eastern don’t have to deal with.

    All the west wants is an equal footing with the east in regard to their state’s land. Is that too much to ask?

    I agree, but you should remember In Nevada or any other State land Owned in title by any foreign government is no different than land owned in title by any private owner. It is Subject to the laws & taxes of the State.

    The problem in the west with Federal land is that that land is NOT subject to the laws of the State, It can’t be tax, so there is no cost to horde it, and it is often used as legal justification for other federal impositions upon the neighbors. (basically the whole state in the west)

    Let China buy the title, it doesn’t matter who owns it, as long as its not Washington they won’t be in a position to horde and lord over it like Washington does abusively. Because China cannot claim supremacy over our State laws.

    “Why should we buy our own land? Our taxes already go to pay for the BLM and their activities. It’s like paying a fee to get your own money out of the bank.”

    I agree it is, but we are going have a hard time convening greedy eastern to give up their death grip on our lands for free. But we can overtime buy the land just as they did before Washington unilaterally stopped selling it in the 1970’s.

    That is the deal we can both live with. Washington Needs the money and we need the land out of their bureaucratic hands.

    Yea, although i think he understates the sheer scale of the problem in the west.

From this Federal land Washington Dictates everything from water policy(A most scare and critical resource in the west) to air quality policy’s with a level of detail and control that would offend any eastern state, and in itself significantly inhibits the economic opportunity of the West.

    This is an enormous issue, indeed measuring by sheer land areas it is the largest issue in the west. who has for too long had to live under this growing problem.

    The western state must be allowed to buy their land, just like the eastern states were!

    This is the way to go, Call the Feds and tell em its a ‘compromise’. The BLM takes its army and leaves Nevada, and Nevada will collect the taxes and administer the lands.

    This doesn’t wipe clean the injustice of Washington Refusing to sell the land like they did in all the States east of Colorado but it does ease the burden and provide a road-map towards a long term resolution.

    Just as importantly it will resolve the issue with Bundy, by allowing the locals and State to take over with appropriate levels of presentation (no armies or bulling).

    It also makes the injustice facing theses 15 western states less difficult to bare. by giving locals at least some more reasonable say in how the ‘public’ lands upon which their livelihoods depend is administered.

    There is no justifiable reason to allow the BLM to build an army and invade Nevada, Utah, California, or any of the other 15 western states they now occupy. That is an unacceptable and inappropriate level of force that looks more like an invasion than law enforcement.

    Let the people and State of Nevada take care of their own.

    Curious, certainly have hit a nerve with them. Perhaps we should explain a few positions on a few issues:

    “One cannot—or more properly, you should not be able to—be against birthright citizenship, and thus the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, and still claim you support said Constitution.”

    Sure you can, the people who wrote the 14th amendment did not support the idea of citizenship by location of birth rather than parentage of birth either.

    That is just something people after the fact presumed, Birthright however was suppose to refer to that which you get from your parents not your location.

    Example: John McCain was born an American becase both his parents were Americans, but John McCain was not born in any American State. His Birthright is his American heritage.

    Insolently Also You can support the Constitutions while also supporting the repeal of certain questionable amendments. IE: 14, and 17, just as there was a very good Constitution before those amendments broke certain critical checks and balances in it.

    “Similarly, you cannot aim to cut down voter access and still claim to support the Fifteenth Amendment.”

    I’m afraid I’m at a loss for how the 15th amendment apply to not insuring people voting in a state are actually Citizens of the State voting only once. It would seem to me that the 15th amendment requires such careful registration & verification to prevent voter-fraud which DOES undermine everyone’s voting rights.

    “Further, you cannot even claim to support democracy if you want to end the direct election of United States Senators, enabled by the Seventeenth Amendment.”

    Well hes got me here, I do not support Democracy, and don’t claim to support democracy. As our founders pointed our Democracy wast and murder themselves, becoming one of the most oppressive systems of government possible.

    I like our founders strongly appose Democracy and instead support and insist upon Constitutional republicanism. Constitutional Republicanism for those that don’t know history is like democracy except that elected leaders can only act in a small and defined set of ways enumerated in a Constitution.

    For example: In a democracy a leader can practically do anything from making any sort of law to going after any sort of group.

    In a Republic A leader can only only act upon foreign objects and work with tools such as military for defending against foreign objects. He cannot utilize them in an official capacity inside our borders, nor can he tell them to do anything contrary to the dictates of law made by congress.
    In this and many other ways A republican leader is limited to leading only in a defined area for defined proposes.

    While all other areas such as the Domestic sphere, the economic sphere, the religious sphere, the health sphere, the recreational sphere, are all either left to the people or allocated to someone other elected official and/or Government.

    In a democracy Governments & their leaders can in practice do whatever they want, rule in any sphere they want without meaningful limits.

This is the power of incumbency the result current House and Senate rules which award highest position to the longest serving members.

    Honestly I lost my faith in the republican party when they reelected John Boehner as Speaker, and thus effective leader, despite his failures sense taking that position.

    I was already on the edge on the reelection of the Actual head of the RNC Reinhold Reince Priebus. Who has been nothing but a gross disaster sense he took over in 2011 stealing defeat from the jaws of victory

    Reinhold Reince Priebus only managed to steal Defeat from the jaws of victory in 2012, like his counterpart John Boehner who has alienated the base and failed with the ‘moderates’.

    Michael Steele actually brought us 2010.

    Whatever theses people actually did the results speak for themselves. Traditionally when a man loses as badly as John Boehner and Reinhold Reince Priebus have lost you step down if for no other reason than to give the party a fresh start.

    When the Republican establishment failed to replace theses men they demonstrated they had no desire for victory.

    This is extremely important for the western States and the Governor of Nevada needs to put this into the context of the Bundy ranch issue.

    Its not the 1 million dollars that this Nevadian owes to Washington its the hundreds of billions of dollars Nevadian have lost over the last century of Washington hording 85% of their God given land, water, and natural resources.

    Compared to what Nevadian have lost Bundy’s ranching rights stretching back a hundreds years is but a tiny drop in the Nevada desert.

    Nevada has every right to stand up to Washington and assert her equal standing with states like New York who suffer only 1% of their land subject to federal meddling, neglect and abuse.

    But this is a huge natural resource issue for Nevada who suffers 85% of their state under similar threat of abuses.

    Most western states are in the same boat although nobody is as poorly off as Nevada. Nevada’s future hangs upon her leaders ability to reclaim sovereignty over her own lands & natural resources.

    If Washington is going to start taxing and dictating to Nevada the utilization of her own natural resources Nevada’s economic future is rather Dim.

    Nevada’s leaders must know that and it is imperative that they make uses of this opportunity to prod Obama into “leveling the playing field”.

    This isn’t about a million lost federal tax dollars this is about hundreds of billions of dollars lost to Nevada and Nevadian because of the Federal hording of their God Given lands & natural resources.

    Your dreaming, and as much as I would like to share that dream, its not what happened last time.

    I ain’t saying we shoulder do everything in our power to set specific goals of Reducing federal power and bring back accountability to Constitutional Text.

    While absolutely refusing any other expansion. I’m just saying they could propose anything and we must be very carefully whom we send, because those amendments will be out there forever waiting for the right liberal campaign state by state to pass them.

    Let us make sure they got more than a few good amendments in the mix for us to do likewise.
    Like:
    1: Restoring a meaningful senate.
    2: Creating a court actually inclined to uphold the Constitutions limits upon Washington.

    Still all sorts of horrors might come out of there from still greater impositions on how we live our lives to an open imposition of Communism.

    WE MUST HAVE AN EXIT Plan where we can abandon any hell they might create.

    “In the current political environment, the delegates could end up doing more damage than good.”

    I couldn’t agree more about the dangers of the present political environment. Althou i would point out that things are not likely to improve before collapse and that all your looking to save by doing nothing is the presently meaningless Text of the Federal Constitution.

    I got a back up copy.

    “There is no single agreed upon reason why Rome fell. Some say it was attacks by the barbarians/Goths, and some say the Empire itself was simply to difficult to manage and fell in upon itself.

    Some historians say that it was Christianity itself that brought Rome down. That Rome could not exist as a mechanical empire once Christianity took hold.

    I tend to believe the latter.

    True Christianity brings the human conscience to maturity...and that is a bad thing for empire building and maintenance.”

    I would point out that Rome was suffering from demographic collapse forcing them to rely ever more heavily upon outside non-roman forces to defend their borders. Inevitability those forces both abandoned and transformed Rome into that which was not roman.
    In this way Rome did not so much fall as it lost that which made it a strong and powerful empire.

    It is funny, I don’t even talk about it anymore, Obama’s failures are too obvious to ignore and there just comes a point where you just look at them who supported that nutcase and giggle.

    After-all somebody has to laugh even as Rome burns down around us because of their stupidity.

    At least the nonsensical claim of racism is getting the derision it deserves after all theses years of abuse.

    “I thought a State Convention was different from a Constitutional Convention in that the former is where States get together to nominate ideas for amendments, and those amendments would be voted on at the latter?”

    That is my understanding. Althou in practice our State delgations could propose any amendment they want including a whole new Constitution

    It is a way out of the union, simply refuses to ratify the outrageous new constitution. We would be fine if we take the states we now control and form a new country SEPARATE from the ones Liberal’s dominate.

    It doesn’t matter what the Federal Employees in black robes say anymore than it matters what your uncle says in regard to a dispute between you and me.

    The underlining point of this dispute is not who owes what but why. 85% of the State of Nevada is being horded by Washington under such conditions, that is far more than any other state. To put this in contrast only 1% of New York and New Yonkers must suffer such federal Taxes and restrictions upon access to their own God Given natural resources.

    This is not fair to the people of Nevada and their State should not remain silent on the issue. This is a matter of incalculable sums of money and freedom lost by Nevadian every year,
    Compare to that this one farmers 1 million dollars is but a drop of water in the Nevada desert.

    That is the issue here that we need to be pressing, that is the issue that really matters to the people and State of Nevada as that is the issue tat will decide their state’s future more than any other ever could.
