Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor
"ALEC" doesn't only focus on gun laws and minimum wages. Florida, and now Beaufort, wants to have people with money to spend stop, and perhaps spend more in town than people who don't. It's capitalism. If you don't like it, vote against it when you get the chance. As posted above, however, it's difficult to vote against if you don't live there. It's like the hotel room taxes that are used in many cities to pay for sports stadiums. The people who need hotel rooms aren't voters in those cities. Taxation without representation... where have I heard THAT before?
