Those who believe that the candidacies of narcissistic billionaires are destined for failure would do well to remember what happened in Italy. Italians endured years of self-serving former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, underscoring that it isn't just in the United States that ambitious people with plenty of cash will from time to time want to see how far they can get, and what their money can buy.

"“Those costs right now are taken on by American taxpayers via the federal land management agencies but should those public lands be transferred to the states, those costs are going to be transferred to the state of Utah,” she said. “We think that the staggering price tag of abandoned mines on public lands severely undermines the arguments of folks who are proposing this idea and who claim that states could afford to take over the management of our public lands.”"
