    I love how Democrats to try to portray every reversal of Obama-era policies as some kind of radical departure from American norms and traditions even though the policies in question have only existed for a tiny fraction of this country's history.

    Wow. This truly is the end of natural beauty in America.

    Yeah, so much for preserving it, or making it great again....lol

    "Preservation" is just a pretext for more government control over America. The eastern States have almost no federal land ownership and somehow they still have nature preserves. It's almost as if people don't need to be forced by the US government into preserving nature. Amazing.

    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Never heard of the Antiquities Act of 1906, (Pub.L. 59–209, 34 Stat. 225, 54 U.S.C. 320301–320303),
    is an act passed by the United States Congress and signed into law by Theodore Roosevelt on June 8, 1906.

    Looks Constitutional to me.

    Most of the land there cannot be accessed by the public. Saving it for who?

    The important parts are being preserved.

    No. One cannot amend the Constitution with a law. Of course, I have heard of it. But you had to look it up. Now, just for fun search the Constitution and see what the Constitution says.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    If nationalizing gigantic swaths of land is "constitutional", then how come there is almost no federal land ownership east of the Mississippi? Did the framers of the constitution somehow forget to exercise a power they reserved for themselves?
