(NaturalNews) Stories about overreach from Washington, D.C. abound, but just when you think you’ve heard them all comes yet another that makes you shake your head in disbelief and wonder just whom is supposed to be working for whom in this grand old Republic of ours.

Taking into account that most of us want clean air, fresh water to drink and a sustainable environment – and that government has a role to play in ensuring these resources are preserved – there comes a point where that role grows well beyond its original intent and begins to infringe on the constitutional rights of the citizens.
