FOLKS, for heaven sake‘s the question is NOT should the government be able to take your property. They already can . Have any of you heard of eminent domain? The government can take your property anytime they want just by saying they need it more than you do. The question is if they take your land should you be compensated properly for it and get a fair price. Hell yes you should get a fair price you should get a price 50% higher than what a fair market price is because they are stealing your land and stealing any appreciation that property could provide for your retirement. So my answer is yes if the country is allowed to steal your property because they think they need it more than you they are to have to pay 50% more than the current fair market price.
