Cutting regulations sells freedom for profits

Cutting regulations sells freedom for profits: Liberty and freedom only exist as citizen rights when established by mutual consent of the people. Rules and regulations define what the citizens have agreed to as good for the community as a whole. Regulations that are cut, reduced and restricted, for special interests such as business profit, take away citizen liberty and freedom. Citizens of a country own the land and the rights to exploit all resources. Business is a privilege, not a right, granted by the people. Business does not have the right to use the wealth generated by its commercial privileges to purchase (bribe, fund, or financially persuade) control of government and thereby restrict regulations to the detriment of the community, particularly when regulation cuts are made in order to increase profits. Cutting EPA regulations, ignoring man-made damage to the climate, and creating new laws that negatively affect clean air, clean water, and a clean environment take away the rights of citizens to control their own destiny. We are all lesser for the fact that government control is in the hands of those who would sell our liberty and freedom for the price of unhealthy jobs. Money should never be so all-powerful that the greatness of a nation is determined by the wealth of its citizens. Richard Dorsey, Hacienda Heights, CA.
