Environmentalism is tyranny

In response to the suggestion that the government really owns the land the people of America live on – is as ignorant as a 5-year-old child.

Has the person who makes this suggestion read the Constitution lately? Obviously not. It was created to protect citizens from government! He/she obviously does not own property either. No, I don’t want to kill the red eared spotted frog unnecessarily, but if it means losing the property I have worked my whole life to acquire or displacing my family – that frog and the idiot leader who created the foolish law to protect it is my enemy, just as oppressive foreign government was the enemy of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

He/she and people like them need to get a life and understand why 10 million Americans died protecting the basic rights of Americans. It is apparent: Ignorant voters elect ignorant leaders.
