Here’s one that should not get lost in the shuffle. With Rick Perry and Kay B. Hutchison both betraying obsequiousness to big business rather than a commitment to real property rights, those two big guns actually opposed a statewide ballot proposition in Texas to restrict the powre of eminent domain so that property takings could not be used on behalf of other private entities. In other words, this is another anti-Kelo proposition, telling the government and its moneyed clients where to stick it. Well, the people spoke. The proposition in favor of property rights, against the grasping claws of big government/big business corporatism, passed overwhelmingly, 79.70% to 20.29%. This is a huge win for the property rights movement. Conservatives should take note, pay heed… and celebrate.
