The end of American property rights

I am stunned and angered by today's U.S. Supreme Court decision regarding property rights in America.

Basically, the government can seize anyone's property and sell it another private entity so long as that entity is contributing to the "good" of the community (i.e. Economic development).

This a sad day for the republic and is one of the worst and most dangerous Supreme Court decisions ever rendered.

This is not only infuriating, but very scary. My thought is that everyone who has not yet read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand should consider reading it. It is a heavy novel, but once you read should open up people's eyes and mind. We are on our way to kissing the Bill of Rights and Constitution good bye and spitting on the intent of our forefathers who fought and died for Independence from another oppressive government.
