Jeeping, Off Roading, Environmentalists, and the Feds
by Larry H. Morton
As a Jeep Lover, off roader and an American, the more that our freedoms and rights are taken (or given) away, the more questions I have such as:
1) Why does the government own, control or manage so much land in the United States of America? (Look it up..especially Utah
2) Who or what is the Environmental Protection Agency (aka EPA) actually "protecting"?
3) Why are environmentalists so gung-ho to champion more government land control when our government can't even manage itself anymore?
Land closures or severe restrictions to off road vehicles tells me one important thing...and that is...the government has way too much control and power that it was never supposed to have in the first place.
Most environmentalists are often whacked out freaks of the "nature" they are trying to preserve. (The cute young lady hugging the tree in the photo above may be an exception.)
Who are these clowns who will put farmers and loggers and entire industries in horrible financial and personal situations for the sake of some fish, bird or lizard?
I personally take great care of the environment, without the help of these folks who are willing to help destroy the human rights of others for something that is not human.
And before you think I don't love animals, you are totally wrong. The difference is that the environmentalist would allow humans to suffer for the sake of a "snail darter fish" or some
such creature...while I still believe that people are much more important than a fish.
The EPA just loves the whacky environmentalists because they are highly instrumental in keeping this out-of-control federal agency in power. So who does the EPA protect the most? You guessed it...the environmentalist! A little "quid pro quo" don't ya know?
Okay, back to off roading. Do some off roaders make messes and leave a few marks on the land? Absolutely!
Can the environment repair itself? It has for thousands of years...without our help I might add.
Do some environmentalists, EPA officials and politicians make messes of peoples rights to enjoy this God-given land of ours? You bet they do!
Can they be stopped before we have no more rights and freedoms at all? Yes, if we act quickly.
So should we as a people who are still in charge of this country (last time I checked) keep letting a few maniacal zealots and a bloated self-centered government infringe upon our human, and yes our civil rights to enjoy this great country's lands...or do we roll over to the loud-mouthed freaks whose agenda goes much deeper than a mere love of nature?
I for one will fight to my last breath for the constitutional freedoms that were granted to us, not by
our founders but through
our founders by the grace of God.
Please read the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. It's all explained quite well there.
