This is a good article that illustrates the importance of needing legislation to protect some of our fundamental rights. We should be able to purchase property knowing that we can raise our families and live there as long as we want, without fear of being run out of our homes by corporate greed or corrupt politicians. I served 6 years as an elected official, and in my view if an elected official has allowed eminent domain that is not truly for public use , then they are corrupt...period. However, there will not be changes to this policy unless we stop letting corrupt politicians buy their seats through reelection and hold them accountable for their actions. The corrupt politicians will never implement term limits on their own, that is left up to us. If we do not, then we are choosing our fate, and we are leaving a very sad world to our children.
