Before they nixed healthcare, before they deported anyone, before they built a bridge

As industrializing nations seek to emulate our system

Our leaders seek to mothball it.

Irrespective of where you fall on the political spectrum, you already know our nation’s public lands are some of the last best places to camp, fish, hike and hunt.
