When I was young I used to argue with so called "conservatives" who thought it was just dandy for the government to put restrictions on private property owners. They thought property values out weighted property rights. There are FReepers today who will scream and shout at anyone who says they should have the right to park as many vehicles on their property as they want and let their grass grow as they please, totally ignoring the fact that if the government can mandate that they can mandate anything to do with private property.
We in the USA are supposed to own property in Fee Simple, in other words we are supposed to have full control over our own property and what we do with it, but in fact we have virtually NO control over what we do with our real estate, thanks to a**hats the embraced, and still do, zoning and land use laws.
If you think about it, we don't even OWN our property ... we rent it from the government at the cost of property taxes. If you don't pay your annual 'rent' the government can take away what you 'own.'
