Is the UK's Present America's Future?

Below Curt Levey delivers the bad news (nearly 6,000 properties taken with or threatened by eminent domain for private use in the last year) and the good news (democratically elected bodies on the state and federal level can, and in some cases, have already done something about it) on the one-year anniversary of Kelo.

In a rather frightening article for TCS Daily, Tim Worstall reports on the absymal state of property rights in the UK. Is this where we're headed if Congress and state legislatures don't protect the public from eminent domain abuse?
