I am a conservative. I believe that our creator has entrusted us with the care of the world. I believe in the concept of stewardship of natural resources. I believe in leaving the world better for the next generation. I believe we should conserve our natural world.
Matt, I know you claim to be conservative too, so I am mystified by your rhetoric toward the protection of our environment. It is not conservative. It is profligate. It is as if you believe we have no responsibility to the next generation. I’d like to hear from you soon on this topic.
I read with interest in your wikipedia entry that you have 6 Biological children (5 surviving) and 4 adopted children. I commend your interest in the next generation. I am puzzled, however, by your seeming lack of concern for the future that they will inherit. For example, why are you so vehemently opposed to the Environmental Protection Agency, the ones charged with making the environment our children have to live in is suitable for humans after our generation has passed from the scene? I even read that you told the EPA to “Pound Sand”. Please consider that your decisions as governor may have a horrific impact on your children, my children, and the entire coming generation. Could it be that you, with all your intellect and proven ability to make money, have a terrific blind spot when it comes to the environment?
