One must wonder what the US and State governments are thinking? In one year, any administration could turn this country around and provide unlimited resources, jobs and revenue. There is something mentally wrong with anyone who runs for office - they have to have all wires crossed and want to control our citizens, just for the sake of controlling us.
If government would just work for the people instead of against the people, life would be so much better. We need to GET RID OF ridiculous regulations, duplicate regulations, and get rid of all of the needless agencies, and we could again become the greatest nation in the world. We have some of the hardest working and innovative people if only they can get assistance from bureaucrats.

Wyoming and southern Montana.
|An example of one of the many mineral deposits found in|
the Absaroka terrain. This is from the Kirwin district where
many vein samples were rich in silver and some assayed more
than 100 ounces per ton in silver.
If mining and exploration were allowed in this highly mineralized region, many other deposits would have been found by now in the Absaroka Mountains, but this will never happen unless we accidentally get in a congress and president who are genuinely interested in representing the people.
Another of many examples are the colored gemstone deposits in Wyoming. When these were discovered, one would assume there would have been interest in developing these - after all, just one of the iolite gemstone deposits has potential to produce a considerable amount of money. But as soon as the discovery was announced about this and other gemstone, diamond and gold deposits it was almost as if the State did not want anyone to know about these. What are they hiding?
We recently watched a program on TV about what's under America hosted by Martin Sheen. This was a good program that began to tell a story about all of America's resources. But it didn't tell the story of how government is keeping it away from us. There are many resources in this country and we will not run out if we mine and produce them.
