To: U. S. Congress
PETITION FOR REDRESS OF GRIEVENCES
We the People of the United States, do hereby demand that our duly elected representatives in both houses of Congress, initiate impeachment proceedings against the following Supreme Court Justices:
John Paul Stevens
David H. Souter
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Stephen G. Breyer
We, the undersigned, consider the Supreme Court ruling in Kelo v. New London, 04-108, rendered June 23, 2005, not only unacceptable, but to be in criminal violation of the Justice's oaths to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Be advised that We the People regard elected officials to be our public servants. Failure to take action against the Justices specified shall be considered support for the decision rendered in the aforementioned case, and will result in our resolve to ensure your defeat in the next election.
Being from myriad political and ideological spectra, we are united in our belief that our right to own property is inalienable.
PLEASE sign the petition - we need to let Congress know of our outrage.
People should have the ability to do what they want with property. The individual knows what is best for themselves, and a truly free society - which an emphasis on individual freedom - is the prosperous lead into the 21st century. This is how America won the cold war. Individuals are the heart of this republic, and their personal search for wealth, happiness, and the joys of freedom are really what drives the economy of this outstanding nation. This judgement by SCOTUS is wrong, and unconstitutional. Socialism has been proven wrong in economics - to see this look at The Soviet Union or any other country that has heavily dabbled in socialism and its versions. Emminent domain has been used before - and it has helped build great developments like railroads and highways. This judgement by the Supreme Court is flawed and outrageous. They have stepped over the line of Public Good in the 5th Amendment to include economy as a public good the government can define. This country needs tax revenues. Without pulling our troops out of most foreign regions - we can not support our account deficit without relying on buying debt from foreign creditors - including communist countries in which political relations are uncertain. The people need to feel trust from their government in order to reciprocate this trust in these uncertain times. And we need to work together and trust each other, to be united, to work together to help one another and to keep our land safe. The supreme court has placed this trust, sadly, in the hands of the elected officials and out of the hands of the citizens.

An email correspondent's comment:
"FOLKS: This past week, SCOTUS (Supreme Court OF The United States) once again, has attempted to rewrite OUR Constitution to totally change the original intent as written by the Founders.
Eminent Domain was NEVER intended to be used by government EXCEPT to obtain property for roads, public buildings, schools, military bases and other necessary government usage.
This past week, the Supreme Court rewrote the Constitution, stating that it was legal for cities to condemn private property under Eminent Domain, to purchase and then resell to developers and other special interests, supposedly to benefit the community and the city by increasing tax revenues.
THIS IS TOTALLY BOGUS!
