On private property, land grabs, Founding Fathers: Check history

Two weeks ago I sent you a email letter in response to Terry Garlock’s article about gas golf carts, which you never published. I’m thinking perhaps you may be biased as to its content, but perhaps one more attempt may be worthwhile.

Re: Mr Terry Garlock’s article titled, “Hands off private property like gas golf carts.”

Although his very long article starts with the association of personal gas golf carts being private property, the remainder of his article is a historical summary, starting with private property, outrageous land grabs, our Founding Fathers, the Bill Of Rights, and fearing government’s heavy hand.

If one writes about the history of how this country, America, came to be, concerning private property, seems to me you should start at the beginning, when the first Europeans arrived on this soil, and who “occupied” these lands during those times, prior to any “outrageous land grabs” by “heavy-handed” ancestors of our very own Founding Fathers.

Mr. Garlock writes: “One unique aspect of our country’s founding was the sacred rights of private property.” Is religion the protective factor of property rights of historical properties, taken from its occupiers, then divided, to give to, or sell, to others?

There were many “Trails Of Tears” in our history, from Maine to Mexico, from Alaska to Florida, and from the Atlantic to the Pacific. HistoryOnTheNet.Com shows a chart, listing 13 of the main tribes of Native Americans, and their own Trails Of Tears, due to the “heavy hand” of our very own Founding Fathers.
