Thank you, Gaston Gazette, for using John Stossel's story on government being the problem, not the solution. It appears that there are some sane and perceptive people on the Lumbee Reservation -- namely Mr. Chavis. Mike McIntyre has done almost all of his Robeson County constituents a disservice by selling them government "help" -- which has only turned the poor into chronic wards of the state. Surely he can be classified as a sham. I like Stossel, and used this piece on my USA DOT COM blog. More citizens need to see it. You guys are doing noble work. Verne Strickland, Wilmington, NC.
