Just some quotes from Theodore Roosevelt

To inspire you this election.

No man is above the law and no man is below it: nor do we ask any man’s permission when we ask him to obey it.

To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.

A vote is like a rifle; its usefulness depends upon the character of the user.

We can have no ‘50-50’ allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all.

The most successful politician is he who says what the people are thinking most often in the loudest voice.

To announce that there must be no criticism of the president… is morally treasonable to the American public.

Theodore Roosevelt

Happy Birthday Teddy

In 1864, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant, marking the first time US land was set aside specifically for preservation and public use by action of the U.S. federal government.

John Muir and the Sierra Club (established in 1892) led the efforts to turn Yosemite into a National Park, which Congress established on 1 October 1890. The State of California retained control of the park, and Muir took President Theodor Roosevelt on a 3-day camping trip in 1903 and convinced Roosevelt that the federal government should have control of the park.

The National Park Service began managing the park in 1916 (the year the park service was established).
