“For Rent: One log Cabin, Dirt Floor, Wood Fireplace, Outhouse.”
It is the property owner’s constitutional right to own the cabin; it is a U.S. citizen’s constitutional right to rent and use it to live in. This right has no economic conditions. If this is all the property owner can afford to offer, then it is the renter’s right by choice to have a home.
Many of our forefathers, including Abraham Lincoln, lived under those conditions. It is that right of choice—for all citizens—that our forefathers fought and died for. It is your property rights as guaranteed under the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Local politicians are ignoring their oath to uphold the Constitution. They are contriving reasons to bastardize this precious document to create a larger bureaucracy. One reason is the pretext of protecting renters. Isn’t it strange how government is always protecting us from something? It is time to put an end to their treason. It is time to protect ourselves from government, whatever it takes.
Today there are thousands of homeless people who would love to live in that log cabin, and tomorrow there will be thousands more. You may be next.
Be careful whose rights you infringe on: It may backfire.
[My] book Hidden Historic Treasures has pictures of houses in North Carolina that modern-day pioneers took pride in calling their homes. Of course, they didn’t comply with the government’s housing code. The county commissioners would have preferred that they live under a bridge or park bench. Oops! Forget park bench. The city of Asheville has removed them.
