Clean Water Act Is the Largest Government Land Grab in US History

As if taking over 1/6 of our economy with that socialist Health Care bill isn't enough the commissars on Washington also is poised to take over control of even more land than it already "owns". Wake up America we're headed for such a loss of freedom that it will leave you dazed and wondering what hit you. I'll tell you what hit you - 100 years of incrementally moving to the left and today the pace is at a gallop.

Upwards of 40 percent of all land in the United States is already under some form of government control or ownership -- 800 million to 900 million acres out of America's total 2.2 billion acres.

The government now appears poised to wield greater control over private property on a number of fronts. The battle over private property rights has intensified since 2005, when the Supreme Court ruled in the Kelo v. City of New London case that the government could take property from one group of private landowners and give it to another.

Outraged over that ruling and a series of recent efforts by government to wield greater control over private property, citizens are fighting back. Fox News' Shannon Bream takes a fair and balanced look at the controversy in a three-part series. read here
