Powder Mountain Town Incorporation

This issue is after all, about Civil Rights.

With all of the media coverage and signs about the forced incorporation of some Ogden Valley homeowners and the politics label put on by some, the issue is in fact about the loss of civil rights for some Ogden Valley residents.

Our nation was founded on the principle that all men are created equal, and that the rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.

We are also confronted with a moral issue. It is as old as the Scriptures and is as clear as the American Constitution.

We preach freedom around the world, and we mean it. We cherish our freedom here at home, but are we to say to the nation, and much more importantly, to each other that this is the land of the free except for these few homeowners in Ogden Valley?

These beleaguered homeowners need your support, they are being legislated into a town without a vote to choose if they want to be there, and worse, with no vote as to who will govern them now that they are there. Is this the American way?

No, it is not the American way. This is about greed and a lack of concern for the citizens of Ogden Valley caught up in this gerrymandered town.

How would any of us react if we were forced into this situation? Don't think it can't happen to some of you reading this.

It seems that developers can con almost any government body if they make the pot sweet enough.
