"We have fallen heirs to the most glorious heritage a people ever received, and each one must do his part if we wish to show that the nation is worthy of its good fortune" ~~ Theodore Roosevelt
Teddy Roosevelt believed in the Preservation of our natural lands and resources, habitats...the preservation of what God put on this earth, for us to cohabitate with. He also knew the dangers that man could acquire and ultimately use against their own nations; "The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life" He was a good prognosticator!...he also left the Republican Party, and was never proven wrong for it.
Today, the Grand Old Party...under the facade of Tea Bags...are pushing their own agenda. The auctioning of Public Land, and the screwing of the Conservation Legacy of Teddy Roosevelt. They could care less about our waters...the lakes and the streams...let them get polluted as much as they want. They 'are' the legacy of Ronald Reagan's life...his dedication on the destruction of the Great Society...first, his ambitious dismantling of the American Labor movement, his approval for the deregulation of the Air Traffic Controllers. Approving the atmosphere of Corporate Greed, with his "screw everybody" mentality...just look at Michael Malkin...the true life Gordon Gekko. Ronnie also made it fashionable to lie to Congress, by never "recalling" anything he did...like $$$ laundering the Contra Rebels...and allowing the flow of drugs into this country, even, while his wife and her program was saying; "Say no to Drugs", he was a true political degenerate and hypocrite.
Koch Industries' public court records are there for your inspection. All the polluting fines by the EPA, and the wrongful death lawsuits that have run into the multi-millions of dollars...the GOP wants to eliminate the EPA!! Surprised? Who benefits from the Keystone Pipeline? could it possibly be Koch Pipeline Company LP? Who benefits from selling America's Beauty?...They talk about returning the land to the States...and Auction it off to the highest bidder, to generate $$$ to pay off our debts. Doesn't sound like the State will get much shit out of that whole deal!! It's all about the Corporations buying this country up. Why not? they outsource the jobs to other countries with cheaper labor, use loopholes to avoid paying taxes, stick all their private wealth in offshore banks, and now they're are moving their "Corporate Filings" out of the country to evade even more taxes...like Burger King. Talk about greed!!
It's no surprise that every single issue in the GOP's agenda, has come out of David Koch's political playbook, when he ran as the Libertarian Party's VP candidate. It's well documented how they feel about selling off Public Land for private profit. It also is no coincidence that all 13 Members of Congress that want that legislation to pass, are fully paid and owned by the Koch Brothers.
