Transcript: No Need for Government Presence

We feel there is no problem so why do we need the government here to solve one or create one? Let's not have the government providing both the problem and the solution. When we have a problem, if we need government help, there are already government agencies in the area that are used everyday. We really don't need more. And we definitely don't need either the federal or state government buying more land. Federal government is automatically off the tax rolls. And a small rural county already has enough problems with that.
