Letters: Consolidation: One government.; one bad idea MLive.com
Consolidation is an ideology that claims smaller government by enlarging the perimeters of the area, eliminating the individual governments within those boundaries and replace them with one government.
However, this is not smaller government.
It is one government.
And contrary to the supporters' claims, one government does not mean smaller government.
Now that more Americans are understanding what "consolidation" really means, watch out for the new word "collaboration".
Nice new word to describe the same old power grab.
