I've never seen so many people in the government so worried. There are actually
concerns of popular uprisings in America! Why is going on? The US Supreme Court ruled that a town government could
force land and property owners to sell their land to the town to be sold to a private company for private use. Their
idea is that developed land will bring in more tax revenue, and is therefore Constitutional under the "takings clause" of
the fifth amendment.
Personally, I would never call for an uprising, but the fact that some extremists
on both sides have seems to have worried some government officials, who are quickly trying to write new laws that would make
the ruling unimportant. Congress even proposed a law that would set eminent domain laws nation wide to work exactly
as the Constitution said they should.
So watch out there, your home might be a mall next year!
