In his interview of Carl Paladino, Rick Sanchez spent a lot of time discussing mosque construction in Manhattan, but here’s the most interesting part for the libertarians who endorsed him: he wants to use the right of eminent domain to seize the Burlington Coat Factory and turn it into a 9/11 memorial. He also believes that government has the right to declare that any building that was touched by dust from the 9/11 site can fall under eminent domain.
We will declare it, under the law, to be a right which is within the definition of public use. As long as it is within the definition of public use, which includes the zoning restrictions, then we would have a right to use eminent domain to place such a restriction over all the properties in that area.
Since he has also pledged to cut taxes, Medicaid and the size of government, our precious freedom won’t be endangered. (CNN won’t allow embedding of their interviews, but the first part is also worth watching.)
