If the government has a reason, they should have the ability to envade your private property. In today's age, there is a lot of bad things going around, alot of crime. In order to prevent some of these acts, privte property cannot be entirely private.

private property is one of the things that people have to have because there are certain things that you can claim your own. Property is where someone lives or owns and if the person doesn't want you there they have every right to tell you to leave. if someone was on your property and you didn't want them there would not have the comfort to tell them to leave. if the government was trying to take a person property they should have probable cause or an illegal reason why they can.

In the boston bombing marathon when there was a desperate hunt for the bomber, your telling me private property should be sustained when there on a hunt for the man. That the authorities cant go through peoples yard looking for him because of private property? There is no time for a warrant at that point, so there should not always need warrants.

"When you look at 19th century America or 18th and 16th century Europe, all of a sudden it"ll become clearer that " the thing that broke the back of poverty and privilege in developed countries in the past was when property rights came around and destroyed feudal title."

Private property is one of the main reasons that the poor remain poor. The wealthy get rediculous amounts of land because they can that the government cannot go through for what reason, its earth. As well as all these big buissnesses getting way to much priviledge in america, its absurd.

Back that long ago there were not too many rich people. that long ago there was a government that was called a monarchy, this was ran by a king. the king and the royal family had the most amount of money. The poor were poor because they had farms which took up massive amounts of land, so they could grown there crops to sell to people to make money. Then no one had the right to be on your property so you could kill them if you did not want them there. now the government can just step on your land if they want with no punishment, they could seas your land with no probable cause.
