    Want to know who one of America's biggest environmentalists was?

    Barry Goldwater. He saw the earth as something that God placed in our trust, and that we were to take care of. Unfortunately, today, many would call him a tree hugging Liberal in order to further their own political ends.

    The misnomer is that conservatives don't care about the environment, this isn't true in the least. It breaks my heart that this is affecting the coast, much as the Valdez did in '89, I don't like the idea of waste for the sake of overconsumption and most conservatives are right there with me.

    What we don't like are draconian rules that are arbitrary in nature with no quantifiable gains.......but provable negative effects on liberty and the economy.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Yet conservatives often reject rules to protect the environment that are not arbitrary or draconian, and even have positive long-term effects on the economy and liberty.

    Barry? Really? You're supposed to say Teddy Roosevelt.

    That is false, when you look at actual safety law such as anti-blowout devices on rigs you will find bi-partisan support, obviously wells blowing up is not good, and preventing that is necessary, proper, and of great quantifiable benefit. We don't like CAFE regulations which are set on a whim and don't consider current technological limitations, we do not support as a rule the cap and trade regulations which are arbitrary, expensive, draconian, and economy killers. We do not support that which does not have a completely logical utility. Thanks for playing.

    You know, that is a horrible thing to say. Not long ago, there was someone on the right (we all know who he is) that used our dead troops with glee to make a point. What you have just said is just as bad, which is using a catastrophe like this with glee, in order to argue a political point.

    I'm sorry, but I have to tell you that your post is absolutely disgusting.
