@ 65TossPowerTrapVery true. Thanks for the correction.
Teddy Roosevelt was encouraged by bankers to run as 3rd party candidate against
incumbent president (R) Howard Taft and (D) Woodrow Wilson in 1912. The
republican vote was split and Woodrow Wilson was elected president.President Woodrow Wilson gave us the Federal Reserve Bank, the 16th Amendment:
"The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from
whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and
without regard to any census or enumeration", and the IRS to collect the
taxes that would be needed to pay the interest on US debt to the banks. So far
in 2016 interest charged on the national debt is $432 Billion.Teddy
and Woodrow were used as pawns and we are paying the price. Now who has
encouraged Evan McMullin to run in Utah to split the vote? I suspect the
selection of Hillary for president will happen. And Trump is likely in on it
too, as Bernie was in the democratic primary. Anyone trying to upset the status
quo had better learn from JFK.
Actually the Antiquities Act was signed into law by TR. He used it extensively.
When President Roosevelt spoke to some 10,000 school children in front of the
City County Building (then the State Capitol), Governor Heber Wells (Utah's
First) his new born son over to the President's carriage to have the
President name him. When the President arrived the Governor presented his son
and his request. The President looked at the young boy held him and returned him
never honored the request. So Governor Wells and his wife where stuck giving
their son his name.
@ 65TossPowerTrap"If Roosevelt were alive today, he would
designate the Bears Ear a National Monument in a heartbeat."Perhaps. However, His biographies and autobiography give the impression that
he was primarily focused on conservation of natural resources and no so much
with archaeological preservation. One could also infer from quotes he gave that
he wasn't too concerned with Native American culture and wanted integration
The last true great, conservative Republican.
If Roosevelt were alive today, he would designate the Bears Ear a National
Monument in a heartbeat.
