When I first heard the news that the Supreme Court had deemed the right to ‘private property’ unconstitutional, I couldn’t believe it actually happened. Logically speaking, no individual in the entire United States of America owns private property anymore. It now belongs to the Government, hellooooooo Socialism!
But…how can the Government now own my property? Simple. Taxes. You pay ’em to live there. If someone else is willing to pay more, GOODBYE. For the longest time, the Government has relied on Eminent Domain to evict private citizens for public projects, roads, schools, police stations, etc… Only now, if a private developer steps in and wishes to say…build CONDOMINIUMS or a SHOPPING MALL in your area, and the local government approves, here is your check, say goodbye to your home.
I honestly see no point in purchasing a home as long as eminent domain in this form exists. I could move in tomorrow, and a day later be forced back out on the street by someone who is willing to provide more tax revenue to the government, plain and simple. Thus, I wouldn’t own my home, and even the sadistic prick who stole my house doesn’t own it as the government could push them out as well. On the same coin, why bother owning a business? I could find the perfect spot for a coffee shop, or even a brake shop, a store like Target could legally come in and with the local government on its side, put me out of business. Sure, they’d pay me what my site is worth, but its the principle of it. Why own anything when it can legally be taken away on the whim of some wealthy prick?
Kicker is, this is nothing new, only now the process has been greased by the American Bureau of Socialism otherwise known as the Supreme Court. Can there be any question now just why the American Left has worked so hard to keep Originalist judges off the bench? Is there any doubt as to the intentions of each Liberal obstructionist as they oppose each Bush nominee by proxy? They can’t win at the ballot box so they seize power by judicial fiat.
