Rick Perry -- I Would Cut the Department of the Interior"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Department_of_the_Interior.

So.....no national park service, no department in charge of Native American relations, no one regulating the hundreds of millions of acres of federal lands.....

I guess in his defense this is a better decision than eliminating the Commerce Department, since the Constitution seems to specifically require the feds to regulate commerce. But cutting a department that has existed since Zachary Taylor was elected President? I mean, talk about your aggressive cutting. Next up? Maybe the State Department?
