This week’s must read is a guest editorial in the Bozeman Chronicle by Blaine County Commissioner Vic Miller. The well-written piece explains how Congressman Rehberg’s federal land grab bill amounts to trampling our rights to declare a police state over Glacier National Park, Indian reservations, and a vast swath of public lands. Commissioner Miller says:
it is exactly the kind of Big Government Montanans don’t tolerate. All of us should be up in arms over the prospect of this bill. It infringes on our constitutional rights in the name of freedom – much like the controversial REAL ID Act. In fact, this bill builds off of REAL ID.
Commissioner Miller knows what he’s talking about, he runs a county on the Hi-Line and deals with border issues as part of his job. Don’t miss the piece on this bill up at Intelligent Discontent either.
