Jesse James Hardy lives on a 160 acre plot of land in the Everglades. He developed his land essentially by himself--he paved his own road, has his own generator, and paid off his mortgage years ago. The state of Florida is considering using the force of eminent domain to forcibly remove him from his land.

We agree that "Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action." --George Washington
