If Romney wins, we lose, the planet loses

If Mitt Romney is elected president, expect drilling for fossil fuels to explode. The Republican challenger has promised to double the number of drilling permits issued for federal lands. And that boom would go unregulated: Romney has blasted the current administration's "effort to crimp natural gas by federal regulation of the very technology that produces it.   -Rolling Stone
Here are some beautiful, valuable areas of our country that will be destroyed during a Romney presidency:

Virginia's George Washington National Forest
Montana's Blackfeet Reservation and Glacier National Park
Monterey County, California
Delaware River Basin
Wyoming's Noble Basin
North Carolina's Sand Hill
Utah's Arches and Canyonlands National Parks
Ohio's Suburbs
North Dakota's Theodore Roosevelt National Park
Florida's Everglades

We cannot afford to lose our environment and our health.  We must vote Obama on Tuesday. Future generations are depending on us.

I know it's a play on words, but the Planet can do very well without us, mind you. We can frack ourselves to oblivion, and Earth will go on minus humanity. It will probably be better off anyway. We should be fractivists for a very selfish, but understandable reason: we want to survive in a hospitable environment. Is that too much to ask for?

No mention of the Texas suburbs?? Perhaps that is because we are already fracked by the Republicans who control this state.

If Mitt Romney wins, I will be very, very frightened for our planet and the future of our children.

Hey, I'd like there to be some natural places and drinkable water left for my children, grandchildren, and so on...So, Mittens will have to keep strapping animals on the roof of his car and looking for women in binders because he's not really a Presidential kind of guy.Actually, I would be embarrassed to have him as the leader of our country.
