Sunday, August 01, 2004 - Politics - Private Property May Become Preserved: "KING COUNTY, Wash. -- Residents of King County, Wash., will only be able to build on 10 percent of their land, according to a new law being considered by the county government, which, if enacted, will be the most restrictive land use law in the nation."
""My take is it's stealing — out and out stealing," said county resident Marshall Brenden. "They're taking 65 percent of your land that you fought for years to pay for, paid mortgages on and now you can't use it."

The federal government is supposed to guarantee a republican form of government in all the states, according to the Constitution of the United States, including upholding the rights of citizens, which included that part about not depriving people of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. It isn't the government's land, in spite of that socialist ditty, "This land is our land; this land is my land." O yeah? Go try to pitch your tent on the beaches of Santa Barbara!
