Run for Metro Council

I did't know Metro engaged in "Central Planning." In fact, I think it is impossible for a local government to engage in central planning. Central planning is what Russia and China did. We have a general plan which addresses land use and guides zoning decisions and we have a street plan and a parks plan and lots of plans but central planning usually refers to a system of extensive central government control of the economy. Those libertarians get carried away sometimes. Nevertheless, I would welcome a couple libertarians on the Metro Council. You can be sure they would vote against the abuse of eminent domain. I would like to see a lot of new faces on the Metro Council.

  1. Rod,

    Having the government control the roads, the schools, the sidewalks, the electricity, the water, and telling people what they can and can't do on their own land is the very definition of central planning.
