Support Private Property Rights!

Heads up on an event in Columbus next Wednesday.... This was forwarded to me by the people at the Institute for Justice. If you can spare the time, I would encourage you to take the time to defend one of the core components of liberty. If you think its wrong for government to steal the home of an elderly couple in order to turn it over to a politically connected real estate developer to build a parking lot for a strip mall, then you need to get out and show your support for the victims of the Norwood City Council....

Friends:

Just a reminder to attend our rally in support of the Norwood homeowners at the Statehouse on Wednesday before IJ attorneys argue their case before the Ohio Supreme Court.

From what I heard, It went VERY well... There was a huge turnout, and many people felt really good about the fight for private property rights. The LP got some good exposure, too, from what I heard.
