					   What Would Lincoln Think?
    USDA Rural Development
“The legitimate object of government,
is to do for a community of people,
whatever they need to have done,
but can not do, at all, or can not,
so well do, for themselves in
their separate, and individual
capacities.”
               -Abraham Lincoln
