Another Reason why Donald Trump Is Leading

Donald Trump is the candidate for president and many of his supporters are angry at the government for many different reasons.
And here is another reason.
From Fox News:
A rancher is taking the Environmental Protection Agency to federal court, asking a judge to stop the agency from fining him more than $16 million because he built a small pond on his property. 
Andy Johnson of Fort Bridger, Wyoming says he made sure to get the proper permits from his state government before building the pond. After all, this is America in the 21st century, and nothing done on your own property -- certainly when it involves the use of water -- is beyond gov
Johnson is facing millions in fines from the federal government after the EPA determined his small pond -- technically a "stock pond" to provide better access to water for animals on his ranch -- is somehow violating the federal Clean Water Act. 
"We went through all the hoops that the state of Wyoming required, and I'm proud of what we built," Johnson said. "The EPA ignored all that." 
In a compliance order, the EPA told Johnson he had to return his property -- under federal oversight -- to conditions before the stock pond was built. When he refused to comply, the EPA tagged Johnson with a fines of $37,000 per day. 
Dismantling the pond within the 30-day window the EPA originally gave him was "physically impossible," Johnson said. 
That was in 2012. Today, Johnson owes the federal government more than $16 million, and the amount is growing as he tries to fight back. ernment concern
The EPA is a as close to a terrorist organization within the United States government.
They make up rules as they along.
The love to harass small business owners and farmers and ranchers and love to punish them without even going to court.  The EPA assumes you are guilty until you are proven innocent.
Hopefully, if a Republican gets into the White house, they will get rid of the EPA.  It is a totally useless piece of government and their sole existence seems to be is to harass as many businesses and individuals as possible.
Maybe Donald Trump, if he becomes president, will eliminate the EPA.
