Lots of emotion, and no facts.....No quotes from the radical republicans talking about drilling in BBNP???

If a person is persuaded to vote one way or another from this one article, then they are the kind of person who must blame someone else for all their own problems...          sad


Read the text of the bill
http://beta.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/house-bill/1459/text

It is a statement bill that requires an act of Congress to make or change a public land designation.  Not the will of one person, el presidente, or the EPA.  It's truely about private property rights.  The Progressives hate it because it restricts their ability to use a government official or agency to take other people's land away from them.  Make Congress have to vote on it so that there is voting record, then hold them accountable next election cycle.

All the while demanding censorship and removal of opposition Conservative "hate speech" voices.  Globalists Hate Freedom

Dumb.

Both parties suck...

Voting is a pointless exercise; big corporation controls big government.  Patries are irrelevant fore the most part; Pres has biggest impact on FoPo obviously.  But as far as you and I daily, no impact either way.

If you live in TX, then the state-wide elections are all going Repub so who cares.

We r screwed as a nation and there ain't nothing any of us can do about it.

Quiz:

Who said, "A little revolution now and then is a good thing."?

Thomas Jefferson.
