Fiscal Conservatism 101

Infrastructure must be built and maintained for any community to thrive. And the most important infrastructure any community has is its people. Greensboro's leaders have long failed to understand that people are more important to community than are buildings, roads, performing arts centers, and monuments to the rich who got rich by using taxpayer dollars to do so.

You can talk tough on crime all you want. You can shout partisan talking points all you want. You can do all those things that have been tried and failed in every city in America all you want but until we recognize our people as our most important infrastructure and invest in them as such we will always fail.

That, my friends, is Fiscal Conservatism 101.

It is also Religious Conservatism 101 no matter your religion.
