NH 2020 fans won’t debate

Why are the “pushers” of NH 2020 so opposed to debate? Mr. Starr resorts to hateful name-calling and lies in his attempts to discredit candidate Bedwell. Of course many of us would like the maps of biotic inventories to remain closed; we were opposed to the mapping in the first place. If the county, for tax purposes or whatever, decides to inventory my house, I would rather not share that information with the public either.

Why does Big Brother need so much information about our little domains? What do they plan to do with the info?

And the woman who snapped up most of the pro- and anti-2020 Web sites keeps threatening lawsuits against those who mention her cyber-squatting. Why is she so afraid of debate?

If the pro-NH 2020 people are so afraid of the “property rights movement,” what does that make them? Has collectivism worked anywhere in the world? Do we take better care of “collectively” owned land than we do our own? Those opposing NH 2020 are not trying to rezone the county into multiple-tract home sites; they just think the 1995 General Plan and zoning was balanced, and we should follow it. Why the need for further intrusive government intervention?
