Earth Day

“Optimism is a good characteristic, but if carried to an excess, it becomes foolishness. We are prone to speak of the resources of this country as inexhaustible; this is not so.”

– President Theodore Roosevelt, Seventh Annual Message to Congress, December 3, 1907

Florida Federation of Young Republicans,

Today we celebrate the Earth and all Her glory. We also use this day to remind the Democrats and liberal, mainstream media that they do not own a cornerstone of environmentalism and conservation of our natural resources. Republicans, too, understand the need to conserve our resources. However, both the environment and a booming economy are essential to our nation’s future and one cannot be sacrificed for the other.

As Floridians we know the two go hand-in-hand: people from across the globe visit our beautiful beaches on both coasts annually and bring their money with them to spend and stimulate our economy! Below are a few images of various chapters across our state working to clean up, spruce up, and show off Florida’s beauty!

If conservation is something you’d like more information on, please visit ConservAmerica, whose mission states:

“ConservAmerica was founded under the name Republicans for Environmental Protection in 1995. Our mission is to restore the Republican Party’s great conservation tradition, which is grounded in the timeless conservative ethic of stewardship. We are working to restore conservation and environmental stewardship as fundamental elements of the Republican Party’s vision for America.”

Stewardship of our environment and of our economy is the way to get America, and the Earth, on a path to prosperity for posterity!
