The reason Souter's homestead is targeted is, admittedly, to make the point.

HOWEVER, what if it was my home? Would I have the $resources to fight successfully against a drug company? A huge shopping mall developer? No. And would you stand up for me???

How about you personally? What if a drug company, huge shopping mall, etc. felt your house -- AND HOUSES AROUND YOU -- are "in the way" of a "public use" [so-called] that would bring in more taxes for the corrupt city officials? Are YOU game to let the Kelo decision operate in NH knowing this is indeed possible? Please think, please analyze, please discuss, please talk to your reps and please attend selectmen/town meetings. Why lose what you've worked hard for ? ?

A word about pending legislation: if it does not SPECIFICALLY STATE that the "public purposes" can only be roads, bridges and the similar PUBLIC uses courts have in the past accepted, do NOT vote for it, do NOT accede to it, DO NOT allow your rep to get away without voting against it. Again, think.
