Put Yourself In The Home-Owner's Shoes...

You buy a home for your family. Perhaps it's even handed down from your father or grandfather. It's a place you can afford in a neighborhood you like.
But unknown to you, certain local officials are meeting around a table with developers. In front of them are maps, plats and photographs -- of your home. They talk of dollars, revenues for the city, huge profits for the developer. A shopping center with all the trimmings begins to take shape.
You're not asked for input or permission. You're not even notified until the whole project is finalized and the only minor detail is to get rid of you.

'Sustainable Development' vs. Constitutional Rights

The United States was built on the very premise of the protection of private property rights. How can a government possibly be allowed to take anyone's home for private gain?

As has been commented before on your message board, I agree with the assertion that the days of private property ownership in the United States are numbered. Yes, the United States was built on the premise of protecting private property rights - but it was also built on Judeo-Christian principles, which we have all watched slowly be bundled up and cast away.
This is not the country of our fathers - and may God help our children, for it won't be the country of their fathers either.

Peace, love and unalienable rights...
