Letter Sent to Spartanburg County Council Members Regarding the Meaning of Property Rights

 

Dear Spartanburg County Council Members,


Yesterday evening, I gave a speech to you on property rights.  As citizens of Spartanburg County, I think that it’s best that we have a better understanding of property rights so that we can do a better job protecting the property of those who live within the community.  


Below is the meaning of property rights according to Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center.  Please let me know if you disagree with any of the points below:


1. The owner’s exclusive authority to determine how private property is used;


2. The owner’s peaceful possession, control, and enjoyment of his/her legally purchased, deeded private property;


3. The owner’s ability to make contracts to sell, rent, or give away all or part of the legally purchased/deeded private property;


4. That local, city, county, state, and federal governments are prohibited from exercising eminent domain for the sole purpose of acquiring legally purchased/deeded private property so as to resell to a private interest or generate revenues;


5. That no local, city, county, state, or federal government has the authority to impose directives, ordinances, fees, or fines regarding aesthetic landscaping, color selections, tree and plant preservation, or open spaces on legally purchased/deeded private property;


6. That no local, city, county, state or federal government shall implement a land use plan that requires any part of legally purchased/ deeded private property be set aside for public use or for a Natural Resource Protection Area directing that no construction or disturbance may occur;


7. That no local, city, county, state, or federal government shall implement a law or ordinance restricting the number of dwellings

that may be placed on legally purchased/ deeded private property;


8. That no local, city, county, state, or federal government shall alter or impose zoning restrictions or regulations that will devalue or limit the ability to sell legally purchased/deeded private property;


9. That no local, city, county, state, or federal government shall limit profitable or productive agriculture activities by mandating and controlling what crops and livestock are grown on legally purchased/deeded private property;


10. That no local, city, county, state, or federal government representatives or their assigned agents may enter private property without the written permission of the property owner or is in possession of a lawful warrant from a legitimate court of law. This includes invasion of property rights and privacy by government use of unmanned drone flights.


At the end of my speech, I was cut-off due to the 3 minute time limit.  I was going to finish my speech with the following quote, “If you don’t have the right to own and control property then you are property.”  The quote is from Wayne Hage and I think that it makes a lot of sense due to the government’s interference with property rights at this point of time.


Feel free to contact me anytime.


In Liberty,
