"The Secrets of Wal-Mart"
Is the Wal-Mart company involved in eminent domain? Can it affect you? What is eminent domain? It is the power of the government to take private property for public use. We ,as citizens, are supposed to be protected by the fifth amendment. The fifth amendment guarantees that no one may be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of the law. But this is not true today. Wal-Mart has been taking property from home owners by going through the local government. Wal-Mart can ask the L.G.(local Government) to let them buy this property to benifit the areas economy and help themselves aswell. Once the L.G. has approved this, Wal-Mart will buy your property for less than half of what it's worth. This is unfair and unamerican. If Sam Walton(the founder of Wal-Mart) was alive today he would be ashamed.
