On The Commons is a weekly radio show dedicated to discussing the many issues surrounding mandatory homeowner associations, the fastest growing form of residential housing in the nation.

The Founding Fathers were well aware of the mischief that could be wrought should future generations of Americans not be protected from a runaway government. To that end they wrote and adopted the Amendments to the US Constitution. The fifth of those amendments covers a lot of ground but the portion of particular interest for our immediate purposes, says: "....nor shall any person .... be deprived of ..... property, ..... nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation." Are the rights of private property owners as revered today as they were when the Constitution was drafted? Are property owners adequately protected from the forced "taking" of property?

On The Commons with me this week is Bert Gall. Bert, an attorney with the <a href="http://www.ij.org/" target="_blank">Institute for Justice</a> in Washington D.C., has been involved with protecting individual property owners and is very knowledgeable about eminent domain. Please join us On The Commons this Saturday, April 3, 2004. We'll learn a little more about the Institute for Justice and their charter. We'll also learn about eminent domain and "taking" of private property.
