If you have read Lesson 6 and Lesson 7 you now understand how non-Constitutional regional governments use money fed to them by the federal government, and then funnelled down to local government to entice local government to do the bidding of the federal government. Over time, the local government gives its control over to the unelected boards that make up the regional governments, and the representative local government is no more. In its place is a “cash cow” called the taxpayer, who will now be “milked” through higher and higher taxes that will be redistributed overseas and to the inner city.
One way to stop this process from occurring is for local government to stop paying fees in order to increase the chances of receiving grants. In other words, do not join the regional government or if already a member, withdraw.
The good news is that the Commissioners of Pickaway County, Ohio (a county in the central part of Ohio) made the decision on July 1, 2013 to withdraw from the Mid Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC). With the Director of MORPC in attendance, Commissioner Stewart stated: “…MORPC’s view of property rights is not in line with the views of the residents of Pickaway County…Pickaway County does not want to live the way you want us to… MORPC has gotten involved in the environment and pushing an agenda that is not in line with Pickaway County.”
All that can be said to that is “Amen!” and “Hallelujah!”
