As it says in the Declaration of Independence "governments derive their right to rule from the consent of the people". This project has never demonstrated any such thing in any forum, in any way. Without such a demonstration of popular support this project should not proceed.
There is no overwhelming public "need" being served by spending a huge amount of public money on yet another sports stadium. The taxpayers already own several now and the building that the Vikings are seeking to replace has a new roof and playing surface. If the Vikings and NFL wish to build another with their own money they are free to do so.
I read today that the NFL has a real problem with the Vikings playing at TCF Bank stadium. Have also heard (on radio) that the U doesn't want the Vikings.
The whole premise is wrong that the state needs to be involved, somehow the Vikings are the ones controlling the debate rather than the state controlling how little they will get as welfare.
