Teddy Roosevelt and the national park system

Teddy Roosevelt was known as the conservationist president. Roosevelt used his authority to protect wildlife and public lands by creating the United States Forest Service (USFS) and establishing 150 national parks. During his presidency, Roosevelt protected approximately 230 million acres of public land. I am very proud of this because nature is something to be enjoyed and not just trashed or demolished for more space.My evidence is a picture of his nation park( Theodore Roosevelt National Park)

16th Amendment

The 16 amendment states that congress shall have the power to lay and collect tax incomes from whatever source derived, without amount the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration. I am ok with this amendment because it didn't allow people to die rich and waste all that money but also it was their money and if they didn't want to pass it down then thats their decision.My evidence is a political cartoon of a man representing taxes shaking a man's pockets empty that represents the regular citizen.

Prohibition

Alcohol consumption was never illegal under federal law. Nationwide Prohibition did not begin in the United States until Jan. 1920, when the 18th Amendment to the US constitution went into effect. This amendment made alcohol consumption illegal. I am proud of the effort but there was no chance of it working. Prohibition harmed people financially, emotionally, and morally. my evidence is picture of citizens dumping alcohol down drains in the city.
