Obama took action earlier this year to ease the visa process for foreign tourists. In addition to drawing tourists to places like Disney World, he said, “we’re helping more people discover our parks, our mountains and our beaches.”

Rats want all people packed into cities and federal goverment to own all the land.
You can buy a visitor pass to enter a park and take a guided tour of nature.

If you’re having trouble understanding how conservation boosts the economy, just think how much an unemployment check boosts the economy. Both work pretty much the same way to accomplish that goal.
