    Was the rancher in nevada wrong about not paying for grazing to the gov?

    Was the rancher with the cattle right or wrong about paying the gov. for grazing rights on government land? .was he a freeloader.... the rest of us pay to use the streets ,roads, fire dept parks etc. with taxes this land belongs to the people of the united states it does not belong to him so he should pay us to use it/ graze cattle

    He was wrong. It's that simple.

    Observe property rights or pay the price. The government has just as much right to land ownership as you or I. Unfortunately, thanks to Eminent Domain, more than you or I.

    He is breaking the law and trying to avoid penalty.

    Sure he was. He just happens to be the beneficiary of a populist narrative that paints the federal government as a bad actor no matter the actual circumstances.

    Frankly, he did a good job of it for the better part of two decades.

    Figures.

    I'm hoping that even libertarians wouldn't support this. Just because it's government, doesn't mean it's not stealing and a violation of property rights.

    The third option, hasn't this already been thoroughly litigated in the court system and the rancher has lost?

    It as litigated in the wrong court. How are you gonna have a Federal judge rule on a case where the plaintiff is the Federal government?

    Nah, no conflict of interest there...

    It should have been decided in a State court.

    I don't like the federal government at all, but this is silly if you think the government is in the wrong. If they were telling him what to do on HIS land, then it would be a different story, but come on now. Talk about being greedy.
