Sustainable Development

How "Sustainable Development"
Affects Your Property Rights

"Sustainable Development", "Open Spaces", "Smart Growth". These are the code words that are being used by self-appointed regional planners to threaten your property rights and our American way of life. They use buzz words like "sprawl" & "blight" to try and justify their actions to solve a non-existent environmental crisis. Their plan calls for widespread use of eminent domain, transfer of development rights and other tactics to create high density living along the LIRR transportation corridor, thus limiting development of single family housing.

    "Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions.

    Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the "new wonderful good society" which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean "more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious".

    - Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC)


    "It does not take a majority to prevail - but an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

    -- Samuel Adams

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    -- Ronald Reagan

    "The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened".

    -- Norman Thomas
    Socialist Candidate for President of the United States 1944
