Access to our Country’s Public Lands is a Birthright of every American Citizen.
Same as any reasonable person, the ECT crowd promotes responsible use (don’t litter, don’t start forest files, don’t deface, don’t abuse…etc) any of our Public Lands – nor anywhere else for that matter…
The Issue today it seems is that the U.S. Forest Service is promoting a plan – to ‘Steal Your Liberty’ – by limiting our collective access to Public Lands. (Click Here)
USFS wants to close – No less than 519 miles of Roads and Trails and an additional 692 Miles of what the Forest Service considers “bandit” routes. Too many of which are here in Eagle County – probably right in your back yard. For a look-see of what is targeted to be closed in Eagle County – the so called Eagle Rangers District (Click Here)
Where does it say (our U.S. Constitution?) that one group of Americans has the right to tell another group of Americans – where they can/can’t go on Public Lands and what they can/can’t do on those Public Lands, once there?
The ECT re-affirms our responsible use – principle.
At first the ECT thought this plan was written by Rep. Jared Polis. Any wonder why so many informed/aware Eagle County residents want to leave Polis’s (Congressional District 2) in favor of joining CD3 that includes exclusive Western Slope County/ interests?
The ECT encourages our readers to take a hard look – at donating/funding to any local ECO-group that supports – this taking of your Liberty – for their ECO-Agenda.
