Modeling an efficient local government like Montgomery County, Maryland, “An All-America Community” (Cultural adjustments are to be implemented)

A number of 800 meters by 800 meters, free trade sites, named: “The Opportunity Villages’ are under consideration in the newly formed or to be formed states in: Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Liberia. The real estate developments consist of residential and commercial properties for sale and or long term lease to the willing and able nationals and ex-patriots. Public schools, health clinics, web-based universities, chambers of commerce and shopping centers are to be opened in the developments for the use of “The Opportunity Villages” residences as well as the surrounding neighbors. “The Opportunity Villages” are to be operated exclusive from the local governments. England-Hong KongChina is the model to be implemented. Local surrounding governments are encouraged and welcomed to observe and learn how an efficient micro government operates. Modeling of a time tested local governance is the key. Montgomery County, Maryland established 1776, same year as the inception of the United States of America by the first 13 States. Free State of Maryland was one of the first thirteenth states. ”Hunger is not for the lack of the food but lack of democracy”. No one is above the law and not all the democracies need to be Jeffersonian. Cultural adjustments are encouraged by the scholars of each society. Learning and teaching in a transparent way, are the fundamental components of a prosperous community. “Opportunity Villages” are civil, enterprising, compassionate and All-America Communities. As I heard for the first time from one of my favorite American President, Honorable George W. Bush: “Money Trumps Peace.”
