All well and good.
But when Monument/National Park status is used as a method of confiscating real property, as it has been in the case of mining claims, timber rights, and grazing rights, and as a method of putting public lands completely "off limits", as has been happened with the Keane Wonder Mine in Death Valley National Park in California, and the lava tubes of the El Malpais National Monument right here in New Mexico, just to name a few, then a case can also be made against the increase of Federal control over our lands.
Public lands, like anything else government gets involved in, are best managed by the government closest to the situation, rather than by far-off bureaucrats in Washington, D.C.
