CONSTITUTION PARTY OPPOSES THE RECENT SUPREME COURT DECISION ALLOWING LOCAL GOVERNMENTS TO SEIZE PEOPLEíS HOMES AND BUSINESSES AGAINST THEIR WILL FOR PRIVATE DEVELOPMENT

 

 

LANCASTER, PA:  In the case of Kelo  v. City of New London 04 - 108, the Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 that a city may seize private homes and use the land for an economic revitalization project provided the city pays the homeowners ďjust compensationĒ.


We, in the Constitution Party, believe that the right to own private property is fundamental to civilization, and that every citizen has a natural right to own, control, and dispose of his or her property.
 

A personís home and private property serves as the basis for liberty because without personal economic power (a home, a job, the right to accumulate property), a person cannot support himself or his or her family and is therefore at the mercy of government control.
 

Government taking a personís property and delivering it to another private party in order to enhance the governmentís tax revenue is disgusting behavior.  Simply put, tax revenue for government is now more important than a personís home.
 

The Constitution Party hereby expresses its opposition to this radical departure from centuries of American history and calls on the court to reverse its decision.
 

The Constitution Party is the only national political party with a strong stand on moral, economic and constitutional issues. The Constitution Party is working to restore government to its vital, yet limited, constitutionally defined role. The Party advocates less government spending, regulation, gun control, and taxes, and is committed to the protection of life, liberty, and property.
