Alabama Legislature to consider restriction of Eminent Domain.
Alabama Legislature to consider restriction of Eminent Domain. ALERT The Supreme Court has recently decided that state and local governments can take your property for the use of developers and other private businesses unless state laws prevent it.
Act now to stop the abuse of eminent domain and protect your property rights!
The other bills dealing with eminent domain will not give you these protections. CALL YOUR STATE SENATOR NOW and ask him to support the Farm and Home Protection Act by Senator French. Information on the House version will be coming soon.

Alabama Attorney General Troy King, has been challenged to crack down on abortion clinics for failing to report cases of statutory rape. A Morgan County priest is pushing the state's top law enforcement official to crack down on abortion clinics that fail to report suspected cases of statutory rape.
Father James Henderson, a pro-life activist from Somerville, says Alabama clinics have "covered up" as many as 490 rapes in the past four years by not telling police about girls 16 or younger who have become pregnant by older men.
Those wishing to contact Attorney General Troy King, his offices numbers are 334-242-7300, 1-800-392-5658, or 1-800-626-7676. Troy King is very experienced, serving several years as Assistant Attorney General under Bill Pryor. Read more at http://www.alabamadefenders.us

The Confiscation of America http://www.keepourrights.org
The Alabama state motto is �We Dare Defend Our Rights�
The writers of both the United States and the Alabama Constitutions understood that private property is the major cornerstone of freedom and prosperity. They clearly recognized that there is a direct correlation between a government�s defense of private property rights and the degree of liberty enjoyed by its citizens.
Our Founding Fathers and the writers of our 1901 Alabama Constitution, both having recently escaped a tyrannical and oppressive government, knew full well the destruction of freedom and liberty that accompanies the loss of private property through governmental force. Both bodies clearly stated in their constitutions that the taking of any of these rights or usages through force of government (eminent domain) should, therefore, never be allowed except as a last resort and then only under two conditions:
(1) a clearly demonstrated need for �actual� public use and
(2) only after the property owner has received just compensation for his property.
Understanding the nature of man, they further stated that eminent domain powers shall never be used to take property rights from one individual and give them to another individual or business, lest the powerful dominate, oppress and deprive the weak of their rights to �life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness�
It is absolutely essential that our citizens understand that ownership entails not just the title to property, but by definition, ?permits the owner to legally possess, use, enjoy, control, dispose of, protect and defend his property.? They must also understand that any condemnation or confiscation by eminent domain that results in a reduction in the usage, value or control of private property below those rights and privileges originally held by the owner, also constitutes a taking of private property. Any time a taking of property rights has occurred, the property owner deserves just compensation for these losses.
In a just and free society, the cost of obtaining property necessary for public use should be broadly and uniformly born by the society in general, and not unjustly born by the individual property owner whose property has been taken.
Taking property is taking liberty.
Governor Riley supporting bad bill on protection of Property Rights
The Governor is trying to push through what he calls protection of Property Rights. According to Ken Freeman at the Alliance for Citizens Rights, this is not the bill that is going to protect us. In an effort to avoid any discussion, the bill is being fast-tracked into committee, and the only chance we have to say anything about it is TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY at 9AM in the County and Municipal Government Committee room at the Statehouse, chaired by Bill Dukes. We know this is late notice - it was done purposely. Anyone who can make this meeting tomorrow is needed. This may be our only opportunity to have a say in the matter. If you can't make the meeting please contact the Governor and your elected officials and let them know that this is not why we sent them to Montgomery and that this must stop!
With a re-election attempt coming up next year, the Governor is once again letting us know exactly who we elected in 2002. He tried to screw us with Amendment One. He tried to screw us again last year with Amendment Two. And now he's at it again. At one time I gave him the benefit of the doubt - I stopped that when he looked me in the eye and lied about Amendment Two. Your help is needed now in order to protect Private Property Rights!
Wednesday - 7-20 - 9am - County and Municipal Government Committee meeting at the Statehouse.
