Socialistic survitude

By From page A7 | March 30, 2012

EDITOR: Why is it so important for people that are in law making positions to kill industry? They need to remove themselves from behind the desk and temporally go out and really look at the devastation that they do to other people’s way of life. Some farm for a living; some cut up fallen trees and sell the wood for firewood; some mine gold to make ends meet, a way of life since the beginning of California; yet because of their position they feel that this kind of livelihood is no longer needed, they are so wrong and so misguided. I have mined for gold for more than 40 years and have never asked a penny from our government to sustain my livelihood, but now it is coming to the point that I will no longer be able to afford non-government intervention — our government has run me into the ground and taken away a way of life that I have loved and pursued since I was a child. All that I have accumulated has been lost to socialistic servitude.
