-- meanwhile my next guest says what the -- this is experience is a growing trend in this country the government he says continues to violate americans' property rights.
Cover birth of the Cato institute's center for constitutional studies joins me now Trevor.
Is this an increasing trend what's going out there.
Absolutely it is absolutely increasing -- trend we have.
Codes and cities through out the country.
Rules about how you can use your property.
And the funny saying listening listen to their story.
Brazile talked about community what ever happened neighborly feelings you know we're going to the political mechanisms -- going to government.
Trying to control how our neighbors use their property and that seems to -- ridiculous and it's definitely not part of the American plan.
Well I think the American plan that's right isn't isn't being able to control my own property -- -- if I'm not doing anything that's.
Harmful to other people I'm not growing marijuana I'm not dumping.
Chemicals or anything that's bad for the environment I'm growing vegetables.
How can that possibly be something that's in violation of -- I just don't understand.
Yet it is.
It is ahead structure and these these codes and these municipal codes.
Relive -- it's about political power right it's who has political power given time.
And right now we have the sustainable gardening on the on the rise so they're gonna get political power and probably more cities.
Are -- overturn the East Coast but is that again.
How we want to.
Manage our property do we want to have to fight.
Turning to grow our gardens.
My angry at should be given right it should be given that we includes our gardens.
He's facing more and more cases like this and more than going to highest courts in the land how -- the courts responding to this.
It's been pretty -- the government as against.
Bigger -- violates more property rights and this is disturbing because property rights are a cornerstone some -- -- You need a place where you can say this is mind.
And -- and you guys can't say anything about it but it's been kind of nice the supreme court of some cases involving imminent domain abuse in some cases involving the EPA's.
Which is a huge property rights violator.
They've been doing a pretty good job it's not it's not even these 54 things a lot has -- 90.
Slap downs of the EPA for example because they declared someone's land a wetland and they said you -- you don't even have the ability to challenge -- While we -- -- 75000 dollars a day.
Now we heard about that case last year that was a doozy.
Is there any reason.
You know I know about eminent domain and I've seen it happen for good reasons and for very bad reasons and bad results.
Is there any reason to think that Americans can and should fight back on this very issue.
Absolutely the biggest reason is politics you know it's a much that's messy business one rule of politics.
The politicians will always find.
The easiest path to get what they want so one of the things it's happening and recently.
Is they there's a case the -- -- the Supreme Court next week actually involving a guy who sought a permit to uses land.
And the city said okay we you can have this permanent.
But you have to pay a 150000 dollars to improve some of our land and this is a big benefit for them if we don't stop the with the -- we don't stop with the constitution.
It's a big benefit for politicians -- use no tax revenue and get some of their land improved.
