If we want increased economic prosperity, New Mexico (and the nation, for that matter) needs to elect leaders who will actually allow mining companies to MINE, rather than just speculate.

Total baloney, Bedrock Bob. Our state puts the brakes on mining projects, wasting years making mining companies jump through hoops and waste investment money, for what? What you call a "ransom", and you think that is a good thing?

For someone who so loudly claims to be a miner, you sure are willing to allow your government to run roughshod over you, and make it sound like you like it.

Sounds more like you work for the state agency that regulates mining to me.

Our Democratic "friends" in Santa Fe feel the same way about mining as they do about oil and gas, they just got around to killing off mining sooner, and didn't get around to killing off oil and gas until just a couple years ago.

Then, after they drive away the industry and jobs, they wonder where the tax base went, and why welfare and unemployment are going broke.

Nationally, our government drives industry and jobs to foreign nations, and then wonders the same thing.

Nickel is right, our "leaders" drive away industry, and then come to us with handouts and tell us they will make it all better. BS. Our government needs to get out of the way and let business do what it does best, create jobs and economic prosperity. Something government will never be able to do.
