I am writing about Beaufort County purchasing land to build a facility to rent out to private companies. This may sound good to some, but to me it is outrageous. Why is county government going into private industries and competing with landlords in Bluffton and Beaufort County? Have they forgotten how the free enterprise system works?
This country was built on free enterprise. Government going into business for itself is not supposed to be part of it. This will only serve to drive down rental rates. If they want to do something to help the economy, get out of the way and stop regulating business to death. Regulation is the biggest stumbling block for businesses today.
