    Just a curious point to me since they claim to support private rights and resent the govt taking and regulating land.

    The XL pipeline goes to court to get any passage on land that the Landowner refuses or wants too much.
    A corporation is an individual right?
    A non US corporation no less.

    This is the one and only legitimate use of the Commerce Clause.

    Are you even vaguely familiar with Kelo decision?

    I am a conservative, and I do not support government taking any land except for the purpose of necessary public use.

    A bigger worry, is government taking the use of your land, and doing so without any compensation for that taking. The EPA is doing a lot of that. They just declare your land a wetland, and prohibit you from doing anything with it. However, you are still obligated to pay the taxes on that land.

    So you do not support the XL pipeline taking land?
    Same difference they have eternal access accross your land anytime they want and you cannot build on/use that land and you still pay taxes on it.

    Kelo was a travesty. Right up there with Roe v. Wade. Why are you using that piece of shit decision to justify your position?
