  •  Huh? (none)
    I have no problem with the Government making large-scale long term infrastructure investments (ala the Grand Cooley Dam, etc.) Just because a government invests in such projects doesn't make it suspect or bad.

    •  I never said it did... (none)
      ...make them bad.  But it seeems to turn out that way, more often than not.

      Weilding consolodated and monopolistic power is a temptation to the less-than-perfect - governments or corporations - and the track records of either are not good.

      'Trust' is for those occasions when there is no choice.  'Trust but verify' is for those who have no choice, but do have considerable power.  The last case doesn't really pertain to the average citizen - and neither case is a good place to be in.

      My personal preference is to end my dependence on anything that I have no choice about.
