MARK LEVIN: Donald Trump with Field and Stream Magazine on Friday. I'm just curous, I don't know, because I've given up listening to any of the other hosts, if anyone else has even had the guts to play this, and why do you need guts to play this?
It's his own words. The quesion and then the answer.
QUESTION: The question about public land, 70% of hunters in the West, hunt on public land managed by the federal government. Right now, there's a discussion about the federal government transferrng the land to states. Is that something you would support as president?
DONALD TRUMP: That's not good, because you want to keep the land great, and you don't know what the state's going to do with it.
Are they going to sell it if they get into a little bit of trouble? I don't think it should be sold. This is magnificent land and we have to be great stewards of this land. The hunters and the fisherman and all the different people who use this land.
MARK LEVIN: The hunters and the fishers and all the great-- I don't know what that has to do with anything. Most of them are fed up with the federal government too, the rules, the lisencing, the money they have to pay just to hunt and fish.
But I want to get back to the front end of this...
Ladies and gentlemen, here we go with another fundamental issue, why is it that if the federal government runs something, it will be protected and pristine, and so forth, but somehow the states are incapable.
Is that what the 10th Amendment is all about?
Is that what federalism is all about?
The federal government should own all the land because only the federal government can keep the land properly?
Now listen to me, I may be the only one who played this... I never give up liberty.
