    No, calling national parks a part of our national security is stupid.

    How so? Can you expand on this?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Since someone has asked nicely, I might. Let's see if anyone else can see it first.

    Lots of pros and cons and it is likely a corporation could make a big bottom line if they had no government meddling in what they wanted to do with the land.

    Consider big corporations ...Exxon, Big Pharma, Wal Mart ... I am certain they could use those resources and space to make a profit for a few and create more minimum wage jobs?

    Are we hurting out country and being socialist to even have national parks?

    It's something we can use the federal government for.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    As for corporations, owning and running it, hell no.

    Yup. There are no corperations with enough influence to have the state sell a 'park' to them. No risk there. Right?

    No, they were merely set aside by the President at the time, the state wasn't paid **** for the land and shouldn't pay anything back for the return of its property. Tourist will pay to get in, and that will pay for parks.

    Some States manage State parks well, some don't.

    It would be a shame to sell National Parks to a private company. One the land is sold, it is lost to the citizens of the US.
    Another consideration if sold to a State or private company. In the event of a natural disaster (wildfire for example), I seriously doubt if a private company could afford the suppression costs and or rehabilitaiton costs. One good fire could bankrupt a State as well.
    They will still be there for all to enjoy.
