Maybe the people outside the city limits need to revive "James County," only this time it would include all of Hamilton County outside of Chattanooga. We could start our own businesses, our own library, and our own school system, and not be second class citizens of the People's Republic of Chattanooga.
This is a confiscation of property that belongs to all the citizens of the county. The city has no right to shut the rural residents of Hamilton out of their own library, not unless they purchase the library for the county. If they want to make it a library for city residents only, they need to pay us for it. Some county residents need to get together and file a lawsuit. I would rather see the library close its doors than see Hitlerfield confiscate the county's property.
