During the "R" debate the subject of the Yuccca Mt nuclear waste came up. Ron Paul said it should be up the the State of Nev as to whether they want it or not. His basis is the 10th amendment. To me, nuclear waste is a national situation to deal with. Look at some facts. Pop of Nev is about 2.7 million in a State of 110,000 sq miles. That translates to about 24 people per sq mile. Subtract the five largest cities of about 1.2 million with about a total of 1,000 square miles leaves less than 10 people / sq miles Bottom line - Nevada may be the best place for America to put this nuclear waste.
