Has The High Court Hit A New Low?

The Supreme Court's decision on Kelo v. City of New London erases the principle of private property from 200 years of American history. There can be no question that the founders intended private property to be secure from the arbitrary reach of government. The Constitution sets forth the legitimate purposes for which the government may own property (Article I, Section 8), and it stipulates the process by which private property must be acquired. Moreover, the Fifth Amendment requires that just compensation be paid when private property is taken for public use.

Just like the man said, "The days of private property ownership in this country are dead and stinking."
