If Government Shuts Down Parks Will Close
I am watching and laughing to myself at the thought of a Government shutdown. CNN was saying that if government shuts down, national parks will have to close. Now maybe some parks are different than I am thinking, but why do we need government to keep a park open? Are they serious? Do they really think we are only able to see the Grand Canyon because government opens that gate? The gate is the only thing that makes them relevant at all, take away the gate, and you just removed every reason to have a government running a park.
I have a park near me in which you can hike up a mountain, it is really nice. It is raw nature, with very little improvements from any human, however at the entrance of it, I have to pay 5 dollars to a Park Ranger, who collects money to fund this very expensive building guarding the forest. It serves no purpose, nor does the Park Ranger. I literally am paying him for nothing. If this is what will be shut down, I say bring it on.
