Fiber for Lafayette?

Well it looks like there is gonna be a vote on taxpayer-guaranteed fiber to the home (and telephone, cable TV, and internet service) for Lafayette. In response I have moved the relevant links to the top of my list.

My fundamental objection to this is moral. It is not right for a tax-collecting agency to compete against existing tax-paying business. That forces the businesses to subsidize their competition. I also object to the taxpayers and utility customers being forced to assume the entire risk. We are the sole guarantors of all government liabilities. I even object to the idea that voter approval would make it ok to force the minority to participate in this risk. I contend that my position is Biblically-based and that the opposite position is collectivist and socialist.
