RIVERSTONE: Capitalism in action

Print Article

Wow, just read Lynn Fleming’s opinion on Riverstone and the upcoming Atlas development. Take a look at Riverstone today. Riverstone looked just like Atlas 12-15 years ago.

Ms. Fleming’s concerns seem to follow the “Progressive” approach to social engineering. To quote Ms. Fleming, “Homeowners can hunker down in their safe place, walled from the paradise around them.” That sounds like Nancy Pelosi and millions of other citizens. I’m so sorry that “Private Property Rights” so offends you.

I’m a very happy four-year resident of Riverstone and applaud John Stone for his vision and guts to bring his project to fruition.

Capitalism, not socialism, allows us to live where we choose.
