Another illustration of why no sane person wants a Federal bureaucracy controlling land in Maine. This one is about the abuse of ranchers in the west where private ownership is not permitted, leaving the ranchers at the mercy of "special use permits" and arbitrary restrictions, harassment and bullying.
What does it feel like to have the full force of the state bear down on you? This weekend, Jon Scott hosts the special Fox News Reporting: Enemies of the State, which focuses on Americans who have found themselves in the crosshairs of their own government.
In the sneak peek above, Fox News reporter John Roberts talks to Wayne Hage, a rancher battling the Bureau of Land Management over his cattle farm.
Roberts pointed out that in one 105 day grazing season, the family was visited by government employees 70 times and received an additional 40 certified letters containing various citations and notices.
“That's more than one visit by the government, in a sense, for every day that you are out there grazing,” Roberts said.
Hear Hage’s response in the clip above. Then tune in this Saturday at 10p ET and Sunday at 9p ET on Fox News Channel to see the full special, Fox News Reporting: Enemies of the State.
