Ban Land Ownership in the U.S.A.?

Do we still have rights as Americans?

They seem to be dwindling in the name of equality for all that means we can’t have something if not everyone has it?  Does that mean they will give me my own swimming pool because my neighbors have a pool and I don’t?  No, it means they will take away rights.  That makes sense, right?

According toOffGridSurvival – The dream of owning your own home is under attack from politicians.  It is happening right here in the U.S.  Specifically, there is a bill currently in Seattle where they are considering reducing rights to private land ownership.


Please check this out – especially if you live in Seattle.  Is this true?  Or perhaps a problem with how the law is written?  Is it a reduction of private property rights or an expansion that allows more multi-apartment complexes into a congested city?

Seattle, Washington may be one of the first major cities in the United States to outlaw land ownership for families.

According to a draft letter obtained by the Seattle Times, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray’s advisory committee on housing is currently drafting a set of rules that will ban single-family zoning in Seattle. Part of the draft reads: “We can still be a city for everyone, but only if we give up our outdated ideal of every family living in their own home on a 5,000 square foot lot.”

The draft letter says that single-family zoning has “roots in racial and class exclusion. The zoning remains “among the largest obstacles to realizing the city’s goals for equity and affordability.”

The housing committee of citizen volunteers voted 19-3 to recommend replacing single-family zoning with a “lower density residential zone.” This means the single family home would be a thing of the past in Seattle, replaced by apartment buildings and housing projects — Because nothing says diversity like piling a bunch of people into low-income housing projects.

They hate home ownership because it allows you a small slice of freedom; the chance to live your life without the government butting into every little aspect of what you do. They want a bunch of dependent drones piled into government approved housing units, who they can then control and dictate policy to..–OffGridSurvival
