"It Can't Happen Here"

If you think, say, hear or believe this phrase, you're in for a rude awakening. Ever heard of Eminent Domain? That's what it's called when the Government does it, when anyone else does it, it's called extortion. You or I would go to prison for agreeing to attempt it. That part is called "conspiracy to commit ( insert charge here)", and it's usually thrown in for good measure when someone is charged with various crimes.
Do you like the house you live in? You better hope some developer doesn't see it as the perfect place for a strip mall or Starbucks, because you will lose your home and get nothing for it. Take a look at this news item from New York. Just because some asshole has friends in City Hall, you can be unceremoniously thrown into the street when they steal your property.
These are elected officials, people! If you knowingly support a candidate that supports government-sanctioned extortion and theft, then you are part of the problem, not to mention a cocksucker of the highest order. If you don't know where a candidate stands on this issue, find out. Every item they vote on is a matter of public record, so if you don't have the balls to ask them, you can find out by going through their files.
