Property Rights for the Few

Barack says that anyone who wants to build a mosque at the site of 9/11 and Ground Zero has a right to do that. We are to infer by this that he means: a Constitutional, individual property right. If this is so, then why doesn’t everyone else have property rights to keep all of what they earn — or at least most of it? According to Obama, the purpose of government is to seize wealth/property and spread it around as politicians deem fit. Why are the only people with property rights individuals who belong to a religion whose open goal — backed up in practice again, again and again — is to destroy all things Western and non-Islamic, including the very Constitution and concepts Obama is citing to defend their right to build that mosque?

Maybe, just maybe, some motive other than property rights is behind Obama’s position.
