After years of hard work and saving, you finally own a home. But don't get too comfortable. If government officials decide they want your property, they can take it—for a wide variety of shady reasons that go far beyond the usual definition of "public purposes." The courts have allowed these injustices to persist. And there is nothing you can do about it—not yet.

The taking of private property for government use falls into one of two categories. There is the taking of private property under the absurd legal theory that the object, itself, has committed a crime. This is the basis for taking someone's car when they are caught with a small amount of drugs, or for taking people carrying large amounts of cash just because cash is sometimes an indicator of criminal activity. The flip side of this type of taking is the taking of private property in a more wholesale way; the taking of property, or real estate, in order to promote "growth," in a community.

This book, Government Pirates, discusses the second form of takings. These types of takings are becoming more common through time, to the point that there is little apparent right to own property within the borders of the United States.The author starts with an overview of the problem; how judges have taken power to themselves to simply take property for just about any reason they feel like.

Mr. Corace deals with direct takings in the next section of the book, providing a number of examples in the next section of the book, including the Kelo case, the New York Times building scandal, and various others. These types of takings are direct, egregious, and easy to understand. In the next section, the author deals with zoning laws, which are a lower level, and harder to understand, form of taking by the government. Here again he provides seven different examples of zoning laws used to destroy the value of land.

The third section deals with takings through regulations, specifically wetlands law. Again, there are several snapshots discussing the circumstances and issues of several people who have lost their land through wetlands regulation, including those who have been told a simple mud puddle some 20 miles from any major waterway are considered "tributaries" to those waterways, and hence are subject to wetlands regulations. There is even one instance of a couple who were fined for destroying wetlands because they created a wetland on their property specifically for migrating birds. The next section covers the same sorts of material, but in relation to the finding of species being endangered. Finally, the author ends with a call to action, with some ideas on what we, as individuals, can do to stop the takings.

This is a well written book, with enough examples to illustrate the principles and problems at hand, but without overwhelming the reader with lots of complicated text. Each idea is explained clearly, in language anyone with a decent education should be able to understand.

One would think both sides might come together on the issue of eminent domain. The liberal, simply falls in lockstep with whatever the environmentalists propagate, while the conservative, chooses to offer faith to the republican power machine.

For some time, possibly since the new era of Teddy Roosevelt, the assault on property rights has been proceeding at an advanced pace and I suspect, will continue. Sadly, it may be too late to do anything about this, our precious lost right. For "[t]he right of property is the guardian of every other right, and to deprive a people of this, is in fact to deprive them of their liberty" (Dr. Arthur Lee).

Corace offers abundant cases (references in back) of both government and private theft of property, all of which will bring your blood to boil. Not all of these examples end with bad news though; there are some wins for the good guy. But winning comes with a price, not only for the owner but the taxpayer as well. Along with the ruined lives and being treated like a criminal, the costs can be millions of wasted dollars. And the "nothing to hide" attitude only contributes to the problem. Someday it may be you. I urge education and even caution, you never know when a puddle, a flower, a bug, etc., could turn into a nightmare for you. The definition of blight or, a body of water, is sometimes whatever someone wants it to be. "Even though you may think you may never be affected by these and other types of takings, you should care: about simple fairness and decency for your fellow citizens; about the ripple effect that regulations have on the economy; and about how the infringement of property rights can lead to other violations of the U.S. Constitution"

Can the insanity be reversed, or, are we too far gone? There are certainly ways to take action. A local board is a good first step or, simply, just by informing others.

Interesting anecdotes about government encroachment.

Did you know that the government can take your property if a private interest wants it? Yes and it was confirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court. If you own a home and a private developer tells the local govt that it needs your property for a project the govt can seize your property for the private developer. Read this book and see how people are fighting back. It's a shame that this is happening in the good ole USA.

I bought this book because a local city council is overstepping its bounds and telling private property owners what can and cannot be done on their property, but there are so many other things that intrusive government is attempting that exceeds the limits our Framers put in place in the Constitution. You ought to read this book to see what some of them are and how we can all fight back against the "power that be" and reclaim "power to the people."

This book confirms our country is headed into socialism. It will make you sick hearing about our corrupt government.
Every American who is concerned with the direction that our country is headed should read this book!
