By Tenth Amendment standards, Kelo was correctly decided, even though the New London assertion of an eminent domain taking was itself an abomination. The result was that some states instituted MORE stringent property rights protections than the Fifth Amendment offers, while others continue on the corrupt path to ruin. The result of the ruling is that Natural Law will assure the outcome, which is a wise course in most instances of offering the temptation to centralize enforcement powers.
...well, what if we had all the local county guys seize all the Justices's private property under made up numbers (projections) that this would increase levied tax by some amount.
It's analogous to knowing where the police and bureaucrats keep their houses.
Seriously, some of the problems we face can be eradicated quickly by making the "elite ruling class" live by the rules they impose.
No argument there.
Disagreed very much; the use of eminent domain in the fifth says that it's
for public use — handing over the seized property to a private development company for commercial [IIRC] development is not public use.
