Susette Kelo Tells Her Story



No U.S. Supreme Court decision in the modern era has been so quickly and widely reviled as the infamous Kelo decision June 23, 2005, in which the Court ruled that the government could take Susette Kelo’s house in New London, Conn., and the homes of her neighbors, and give the property to a private developer. The courts justified the ruling by saying the new use for her property could generate more taxes and jobs. (Cato Institute)

Blair,
I thought this was a story worth telling and copied it for my blog followers own use at Voice of Conservative America.

Thanks for posting the story.

Arlen Spector, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe are proven Rino's and not conservatives at all

Blair,

What an extraordinary clip that is. The fact that she's not a polished speaker makes it all the more powerful. I was aware of the Kelo decision and vaguely opposed to it, but I confess I did not focus on how injust it was until just now. Thank you for posting this.
