Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Tyranny

In a step which brings the United States closer to government totalitarianism, the Supreme Court has ignored the US Constitution by allowing municipalities to confiscate private property for commercial adventures. Liberal activism among lower courts has been prevalent, but today the Supreme Court has joined the activist movement and declared the Constitution null and void.

Supreme Court Rules Cities May Seize Homes

Cities may bulldoze people's homes to make way for shopping malls or other private development, a divided Supreme Court ruled Thursday, giving local governments broad power to seize private property to generate tax revenue.

"The message of the case to cities is yes, you can use eminent domain, but you better be careful and conduct hearings"

When money is involved, a hearing is a worthless waste of time. This torrid circle of greed is the most blatant act of judicial intrusion I have seen in my lifetime. The Contractors give to the politicians. The politicians select the judges. The politicians take your land and give it to the Contractor, all the while protected by the ‘law’. The politicians gain more tax revenue. The Contractor make loads of cash. And now they all have Supreme Court cover.

Sandra Day O’Conner has endeared little support from me (not that it matters), but today I must say that I have gained a bit of respect for her.

"The specter of condemnation hangs over all property," O'Connor wrote. "Nothing is to prevent the state from replacing any Motel 6 with a Ritz-Carlton, any home with a shopping mall, or any farm with a factory."

From the US Constitution: The Fifth Amendment states; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

'Private use' isn’t even addressed. The whole notion that the government may take ones land and give it to another seems so absurd that I doubt anyone thought there was a need to address it. Well, there certainly is now. A Constitutional Amendment is currently the only way to protect citizens of this country from commercial interests and greedy politicians. So before all of the anti-Capitalists come out of the woodwork to say ‘I told ya so!’ lets review exactly who the culprits are.

John Paul Stevens
David H. Souter
Ruth Bader Ginsburg (This should fall right in line with her socialist ideology)
Anthony Kennedy
Stephen G. Breyer

This is the LIBERAL side of the Supreme Court. Not one more anti-Capitalist Democrat should spout off about corporate greed following this decision. Look at what the left has slapped us with. Government sponsored corporate greed. I hear a lot of talk about tyranny around the world. I guess these five did not think that we had enough of it on the home front.
