NOTICE:

My associates on the CA LP Executive Committee assisted me to prepare and enact this resolution. (Some of the assistance was in giving it a bit more of a civil tone than I originally projected!)


THE CALIFORNIA RESOLUTION:

WHEREAS, the US Supreme Court has ruled (Kelo v. New London, CT, June 23 2005) against private property in American Cities, allowing that cities and other government agencies may exercise eminent domain against virtually any property for virtually any allegedly public-service purpose, even a purpose as nebulous as increasing government tax revenues; and,

Whereas, the Kelo decision allows corporations and politically-connected developers to collude with governments to seize property from unwilling owners instead of having to negotiate voluntary sales; and

Whereas, the Kelo decision greatly increases the incentives for local corruption; and

Whereas, the Kelo decision is effectively the death of private property in the United States; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, that the Libertarian Party of California condemns the US Supreme Court's decision in Kelo v Ne London, CT. to effectively destroy private property in American cities; and, be it further

RESOLVED, that the Libertarian Party of California will hereinafter direct its efforts toward the removal of any legislator who sponsors or votes for enabling legislation and any member of a local government agency who votes for an eminent-domain "taking" for economic development purposes; and, be it further

RESOLVED, that the Libertarian Party of California urges Congress to quickly pass, and State Legislatures to quickly ratify, an Amendment to the Constitution of the United States overturning this deplorable decision.
