Eminent Domain - A good thought

While browsing around Eminent Domain Watch, I came across an excellent thought.

How about having the state legislatures pass a law that eminent domain property seizure can only be done by ELECTED officials?

Having the elected officials know that an unpopular eminent domain preceding might cost them re-election might make at least some of them a little gun-shy.

A highly publicised and unpopular eminent domain taking of ANY private property could turn into political suicide!

This won't solve the entire problem, but it just might be a step in the right direction......

Wanna fix this? make it so that the people displaced by eminent domain receive 1/2 the additional tax revenue in perpetuity.

It's all such a cluster.
