What the fuck? They shouldn’t take them off the endangered species list if this shit is going to happen.
We allowed this to happen, not “they.” Recall that only 80% of the 18-29yo demographic did not vote in the 2010 mid-terms. My demographic didn’t fare so well either. If we don’t participate in our democracy, then our elected officials are free to respond to the people who do participate.
People, just like you and me, lobbied to take wolves off the ES list and open up hunting. They participated in democracy, we did not. It’s us, not them. We need to take responsibility for our inactions, stop blaming others, and participate. See my posts HERE, HERE, and HERE on what I believe we can do. You are a very powerful force, but if you sit and do nothing you will continue to lose.
