Limit the land zoned for residential use in red states and keep the state's electoral college contribution down.
... how about reversing Clinton's horrific land grab?
Southern Utah is a colorful, yet desolate place. Water is scarce in this slickrock desert, and what wildlife exists there consists mostly of lizards and other desert species. Life in an upland desert environment is hard. The people living in the region eke out a living on ranches hundreds of years old, or work off the ranch in jobs in the petroleum, mining or the minimum wage tourism service industries. A desert highlands timber industry, once very productive and a good wage earner for these families, was recently closed after environmentalists succeeded in adding new regulations which made this industry unprofitable.
It's no wonder, then, that many of these ranch families were looking forward to the opportunity offered by a proposed trillion dollar underground coal mining development in this hostile country. The low sulfur coal found in southern Utah burns clean, and is highly prized for this environmental benefit, particularly in electricity starved eastern U.S. cities and the Pacific Rim. Families saw the mine as a way to stay on their ranches and, hopefully, provide a way to keep their children from moving away to seek jobs in Denver, Salt Lake City, or Phoenix.
