Private Property is Under Attack
Americans are very concerned with the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent Kelo vs. New London decision granting local government greater authority and ease by which they can seize homes, small business and family farms from unwilling sellers — and rightly so.
Justice Sandra Day O’Conner wrote in her dissent to the ruling, “All private property is now vulnerable to being taken and transferred to another private owner, so long as it might be upgraded. The specter of condemnation hangs over all property. Nothing is to prevent (local government) from replacing any Motel 6 with a Ritz-Carlton, any home with a shopping mall, or any farm with a factory.”
To witness this impressive abuse of power, Californians look beyond our State’s borders to see how government is using its police powers to seize private property from unwilling sellers.
Times have changed and these are certainly extraordinary times for those fighting to protect your private property rights. But together, California voters can achieve the protections needed to protect their homes, business, farm and private property.
The California Alliance to Protect Private Property Alliance (CAPPPR) is dedicated to expose abuses of eminent domain in the State of California, and to work with State and Federal legislative representatives to restore private property protections as intended by our Nation’s founding fathers.
