Its ok, we will all be jobless soon! Then the whats "mine is yours and whats yours is yours" will kick in, then ill just go on a huge hunting and prospecting trip. It will all be paid for right??? We will ALL be taken care of haha, there is nothing to worry about. Heck maybe i want royalties now too!! Why not take something that I didn't work for?
Happy Thanksgiving All!! Be safe out there.
Like all mining companies, they are paying claim fees. They also have employees who pay income taxes, property taxes and local and state sales taxes. The whole point of this thread is that some, including those proposing these royalties, think taking money away from one person and giving it to another (redistributing wealth) and creating layer upon layer of bureaucracy is how the US government should operate.
Others think cutting taxes and regulations help businesses grow, innovate and create private sector jobs.
