Find another argument, folks

It appears that certain individuals are attempting to link anti-NH 2020 groups with the current eminent domain issue with regard to NID.

For example, in his monthly article of April 6, Larry Shumaker states, “Anti-planning groups say they are for property rights. So I wonder when the CABPRO and CPR folks will hold their anti-NID rallies?” If it is true that anti-NH 2020 groups and individuals should be against eminent domain as advanced by NID, then it also must hold that pro-NH 2020 groups should be in favor of the concept of eminent domain. Well, the concept of eminent domain indicates that a person whose property is taken should be compensated for the loss of their land. Is that where the promoters of NH 2020 want to go? I think not. Mr Shumaker and others, please find another argument.
