Help stop eminent domain abuse!

Article I, section 2 of the Missouri Constitution says that government is supposed to “promote the general welfare of the people,” not confer special treatment to the influential.Â? It also says that the “principle office” of Missouri government is to protect our liberties, including our property rights.Â? In spite of these clear mandates, Missouri cities around the state continue to use their power of eminent domain to take private homes and businesses for the personal profit of private developers.

For over two years Missouri Citizens for Property Rights has been working on a ballot initiative to end eminent domain for private gain.Â? They are within sight of their goal of collecting 215,000 signatures by the May 4th deadline.

Their current projections indicate that they still need to make an extra push for the final signatures, though.Â? They’re asking men and women who are 18 or older to spend all or part of the day collecting signatures at the polls this Tuesday.Â? This is easy and rewarding work since 85% to 90% of our fellow Missourians agree on this issue.
