Eminent Domain Abuse and your Vote on
Many Georgians are concerned about abuse of the power of
Eminent Domain. Many Georgians also have been led to believe that
the Constitutional Amendment on the ballot for November will protect
their property rights.
However, the Amendment contains a loophole that can threaten
your property rights in the future.
To briefly summarize:
The Legislature and your Governor added two
"special interests" loopholes. They believe that the citizens of
Georgia will buy their rhetoric, vote for them because they stood up
for your property rights and then still be able to pocket the
campaign contributions of developers and other special interests.
One innocent looking phrase in the proposed
Constitutional Amendment is the special interest "perk!" The wording
(from HB-1306) follows:
" � The
power of eminent domain shall not be used for redevelopment purposes
by any entity, except for public use, as
defined by general law.
This simple phrase, " � as defined by
general law" means that any future Legislature can "redefine"
what constitutes "public use!" In other words, with a simple
majority vote of the Legislature, a developer�s pet project can be
classified as "public use" and your property can be seized
against your will and transferred to a developer for profits and
campaign contributions. HERE WE GO AGAIN!
Only two State Senators voted against this
abomination of Our Founding Principles. Zero State Representatives
voted against this clever stunt.
We all know what will happen, lobbyists will
descend upon the Legislature like a swarm of locusts to get their
pet projects declared "public use."
We encourage you to pass this information on to others.

famous quotation from the Declaration of Independence was taken
directly from John Locke's
"right to life, liberty, and property" because the right to own
one's property is a fundamental building block of liberty. A man
who cannot own his own property is NOT a free man; he is, at best, a
vassal or serf on the land of another."

for those who have wealth and power.
Constitutional Amendment leaves a loophole for abuse and will not
protect the property rights of our citizens

I will support a state constitutional amendment which

needs traditionally associated with the use of eminent domain.
of eminent domain, such as "revitalization of blighted areas" or
"increased tax values" are no different than the unconstitutional
practice of judicial activism used frequently by the federal supreme
court and amount to little more than thinly-veiled practices of
"land redistribution" � which, to most Georgians, is just a fancy
way to say "communism."
protection of private property rights is essential to the
restoration of true liberty for the people of Georgia; and I will be
dedicated to greater protection of those rights.
