Politicizing The Case Of Eminent Domain

As the Kelo vs. New London Supreme Court decision backlash grows, conservatives and liberals are taking positions on eminent domain.

"Eminent domain for private development is nothing more than a market shortcut and nothing less than government-sanctioned bullying of the people who least deserve it. Just ask the former residents of Chavez Ravine and Bunker Hill. If Democrats talk themselves into supporting this noxious practice only because Republicans oppose it, or because they aren't satisfied with the taxes generated by the mom-and-pop stores, they will get the electoral results they deserve."
