RhodeMap RI is approved The War on the American Dream Begins
December 21, 2014
Despite huge public disgust over the RhodeMap RI Consortium's conclusion that the prevalence of single family homes in Rhode Island has intentionally created a segregated society, most General Assembly members and Governor Lincoln Chafee either sat silently or applauded the approval of the Plan. Yet there is a growing group of courageous leaders who stood up for our rights, and they must be applauded and supported.
According to the Plan, "the widespread dominance of single family homes played an enormous role in creating an income and equity gradient" in Rhode Island that resulted in a"pattern of segregation" between those who own modest homes and minorities throughout our state.
This huge insult to the character and people of Rhode Island is simply unforgivable.
DO NOT BELIEVE FOR A SECOND THE NEW GOVERNOR WILL DRAW A DIFFERENT CONCLUSION
Governor Elect Gina Raimondo was quoted by the Providence Journal as stating, RhodeMap RI "provides a great opportunity for all of us to talk about the importance of having an economic development plan moving forward."
Raimondo apparently agrees that an attack on your single family home somehow equates to a good discussion on economic policy.
The Rhode Island Tea Party calls on all citizens of our great state to fight this dangerous plan.
