"And that means what, exactly?
Are you asserting that, the more the one pays in taxes, the greater the stake they have in society?

No. I was refuting your claim that, unless one lives adjacent to federal land, one has no stake in it.
Along with spending my tax dollars to maintain public land in Utah, I've spent a lot of time there. Off the top of my head, I've been to Moab, Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Alta, Snowbird, Little Cottonwood Canyon, SLC, etc. etc.
Your argument, that only people who live in a state containing federal land have a say over how that federal land is used, is wrong.
