Clinton gave away control of our National Parks with an executive order to UNESCO. China now owns at least one of our military bases in CA and Russia owns another.

Are any homeowners worried your county elected officials will take your property from you and sells it to another country? People are being kicked off land and out of properties they own EVEN THOUGH THEIR PROPERTY TAXES ARE FULLY PAID. It may not have come to your neighborhood yet. Are you worried it will?

Then there are the horror stories of property taxes skyrocketing to the point where people can't afford to pay them and they lose their homes that way.http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/10/...ty-homeowners/

China is just doing what any country would do if they had the chance. Can't blame them...

It affects our sovereignty though..and what about civil forfeiture? That is more about what I'm talking about (and policing for profit).

I think it was always the whole point of making us pay property taxes. It gives that government a way to take it from us.

Those people spent years voting for expensive public servants, and now they are paying the piper.

That has nothing to do with the government "giving away property."
