Candidate Review - The Environment - Alan Keyes

Alan Keyes is no fan of environmentalism, apparently. He is a big fan of property rights.
Today, disruption of the right of property is threatened additionally by extreme environmental values that place greater importance on the so-called "rights" of animals, trees, and streams than on the legitimate and essential needs of mankind — extreme notions that increasingly strip human beings of normal and reasonable economic opportunity. I support responsible human stewardship of God's creation, but I also whole-heartedly seek to include in that stewardship conscientious and vigilant respect for the fundamental human right of property.
Streams rights? I think this response should disqualify Keyes from becoming president; because even if you disagree with the Environmentalists, they aren't fighting for Stream's rights.
