Eminent Domain

One of the more important cases in recent memory has come before the Supreme Court. The issue is whether confiscating private land and giving it to another private entity for redevelopment and community improvements constitutes "public use" under the Constitution.

I, for one, believe it does not. More importantly, this opens the door for all sorts of abuse. Your church/home/business is not generating enough tax revenue. Let's give it to a developer. Who knows what relationship the developer and the mayor/town council have in common?

Update: I looked up the spelling originally but my source led me astray. All is corrected now.
