The gov does own too much land. Each state should be able be have eligible voters decide if some land should be opened for recreation or industry, or sale to pay down the national debt (non-citizens or foreign countries should never be allowed to own any... 9 years ago from a Republican in Stewartstown, PA
It is my view parks should have portions that would be farmed for timber for example and refurbished. Use the example of Epcot using hydroponic growth for food. If they were a self sustaining by using their products for monies that would only be given back to the parks. I have seen where trees die because they have not thinned out, so not touching something does not always guarantee the best solution.
Secondly, the states that have these parks should have a vote in the decision making. 9 years ago from a Republican in Ocala, FL
Yes but should allow for individuals to log, mine or access lands for personal NON-commercial use. 9 years ago from a Libertarian in Denver, CO
The National Parks should be preserved and protected, but at many times the decisions and policies of the N.P. service show a lack of thought and intelligence. Complacency and Mediocre performance seem to be the case. Also, I'm tired of seeing... 9 years ago from a Republican in Usk, WA
Yes. but let the states have a say in what land is added to the parks registry and i think that more land should be set aside for national parks. i also think that the budget for national parks should be offset by maybe a fee charged to tourist. most... 9 years ago from a Libertarian in Roanoke, LA

Yes, but allow states to lease the land to increase profits from the parks and keep the lease holders under tight supervision. 9 years ago from a Libertarian in Pinehurst, MA
National Parks should be preserved and protected by the state in which they are located. 9 years ago from a Republican in Vandergrift, PA
The government seems anal about some factors of park management and tends to go more politically based and also more profit based. Their "experts" on fire management, where applicable, appear to be uninformed on issues and make many mistakes on... 9 years ago from a Republican in Mariposa, CA

With regard to natural state parks (forests, bays, etc.), the federal gov is well-intentioned to manage and protect them from human interference, but past efforts at "preservation" have caused ecological disasters. So yeah, that. 9 years ago from a Democrat in Worcester, MA
The National Parks should be returned to their rightful and legal owner: The Native American Nation. 9 years ago from a Green in Conshohocken, PA
National parks, such as Yosemite should be controlled by the local residents that reside in the states where the parks are located, but should remain protected by the federal government. The preservation should be solely under the control of those who... 9 years ago from a Libertarian in Leo, IN

Allow for the private sector to make inputs on some National Park lands.

Let Natural wildfires burn, don't rescue people, leave them free to enter the way Pres. Teddy Roosevelt envisioned. 9 years ago from a Libertarian in Spruce Pine, NC
Yes, that is why they are called *NATIONAL* Parks. also let each state determine which *OTHER* areas to protect, but *NOT* practice *EMINENT DOMAIN*. 9 years ago from a Republican in Orangefield, TX
In my opinion, they could perhaps be protected by the state government. That would be one less thing the federal government would have to deal with, giving them more time and energy to focus on making the economy stable and golfing. 9 years ago from a Libertarian in Ozark, AR
Yes, with the help of private non profit organizations, while keeping the economy in mind. 9 years ago from a Democrat in Northampton, PA
Yes, but not lower the protection slightly. 9 years ago from a Republican in Blackstone, IL
Yes, but if the gov't is going to lease property within these spaces to private business, they should not be allowed to just shut the privately owned business down. 9 years ago from a Libertarian in Capitol Heights, MD
