This land is my land

In Michigan, Proposal 4 on the November ballot gives new meaning to the definition " this land is my land". How did we get here in the first place? How did we allow government to take our property as if it was theirs to do with as they choose? How did we allow them to give our property to private concerns for private benefit and to increase government coffers? For that matter, how do we allow government to take our homes, which we may have worked for our entire life for back taxes, after just two years, in a deplorable economy of their making? "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely".

Proposal 4 is the first step in putting the people of Michigan back in charge. We hope the people of Michigan have the good judgment to Vote Yes on Proposal 4 and remind those in government that the people of this state are soverign.

I believe that there should be a longer time frame (five years perhaps) to pay back taxes when the only bill not getting paid is the tax bill. A tax lein state is a good thing (as opposed to deed states), but when there are some tax bills in excess of $5000 on $150,000 of true value, some people simply cannot afford their tax bill. Also, eminent domain should be reserved for PUBLIC WORKS ONLY! Corporations get enough out of the government without our homes and small businesses; without our land.
