Federal War on Free Enterprise
It is not just miners, loggers and ranchers, it is not just the Western states, it is all of agriculture as well, as this article notes. This is how it works. The radical environmentalist organization sues the EPA and wins a concession. Because they won a concession the federal govt. pays all there padded legal costs and the organization gets rich. All the money to pay for the bureaucrats, the judges, and the environmentalists ultimately comes from the private sector they are close to destroying. We continue to cooperate, paying all the bills and electing moderates who will make no waves and continue to vote for our pet programs like the funding of Ag research through the state schools.
