I wonder sometimes what my politics look like in the larger scale of things. I mean, I look liberal in this region and in this day and time, but what if I was from the East? What if I lived 40 years ago? As I read deeper and deeper I like the ideas of the Anti-Federalists but also hold a serious concern for the poor. I find myself wanting the governments hands off more and more issues. Is that only because I don't trust this Government?
So right now I define myself as a moderate. I would like to see a proposal for small government. I am beginning to think I could get behind it.
Which leads me to The Supreme Court ruling on Eminent Domain. What a scary ruling from the SCOTUS! I can't seem to get my head around a way that this is not a clear violation of my right to property---a natural right, not one given by the Government!
