Free Land

My mom in northwest Kansas sent me this article in Time about how small towns in Kansas are giving people free land to entice them to move there and prevent the towns from disappearing entirely.

The article mentions the Homestead Act of the 1860s. Free land for homesteaders! And don't worry about the Indians -- the U.S. Government will kill them for you! This land giveaway is the sort of government help that a lot of people get but don't acknowledge when they complain about "welfare cheats."

For more on this topic, check out this report from United for a Fair Economy.
