“Eminent Domain” has long allowed politicians to grab your property to build roads, railroad tracks, a border wall–anything they claim is for “public use.” But they wanted Kelo’s house so they could give the property to a private developer. Is that right?
Susette fought for her home, all the way to the Supreme Court.
Eventually she lost her case, and her home.
The movie, “The Little Pink House,” is a good reminder of just how powerful, and wrong, politicians often are.
