SCOTUS overturns 5th Amendment

Posted by on June 23, 2005

Okay, so they didn’t come right out and SAY it but they got really close.

The Supreme Court today effectively expanded the right of local governments to seize private property under eminent domain, ruling that people’s homes and businesses — even those not considered blighted — can be taken against their will for private development if the seizure serves a broadly defined “public use.”

For my regular readers(thanks Mom), you may remember what I said about the War on Christianity in America. How the opposition uses vague terms that are self defined so that they can paint Christians with the brush while offering a pass to others? That’s what the majority did in this case. “Public Use” could mean anything.

I’m going to be reading the opinions and come back to it this evening. What I will say is no one is going to condemn my home so some schmuck can make another dollar. They will bury me in my house with their bulldozers.

As Singlemind has told me essentially it’s the 5th Amendment that makes us a Free Market Economy. With no private property there is no private enterprise.

    Today’s ruling is another victory for Communism, as it expands the government’s ability to confiscate–and redistribute–real wealth.

    If government can seize private property for redistribution to private enterprise, then there is nothing logical that prevents government from seizing private enterprise for and hairy-butt definition of “public interest”.
