Tax Freedom for Us
Keith Broaders Online Professor
 

The Federal Government owns and/or manages over 500 million acres in 12 western states. If the ownership  of the land was transferred to the stater, all forms of taxation could be eliminated.

The water, timber and minerals resources could generate more than enough money to fund the government of each of the states.
