we are in agreement on that, there is specific eminent domain right (or there was before today). what I am saying is, don't couple that with saying it also means a single family homeowner has a right to build a 50 story building in place of it. they don't.
"don't couple that with saying it also means a single family homeowner has a right to build a 50 story building in place of it. they don't."
I think property rights are one of the primary tools of Freedom.
Violation and degradation of property rights are one of the primary tools of evil and socialism. That happened today. and the sheep abide.
I think the landowner does have a right to build a skyscraper next to my farm. I think the Constitution does not grant to the government the right to say that he can't.
You still don't seem to get it.
The Constitution limits the government, not us.
We are Free, the government is contained by the constitution, not us.
Our Rights do not come to us from the government.
But, the government's rights do come from us, and our consent.
We the People are the final check in our system and the Second Amendment was intended to insure that the People always matter and have a say in what happens here.
