Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

“We the People" not “I the Property Owner"


Now that the facts are out the horsey people appear to be less a victim of the big bad community and more like an uncooperative neighbor. I think the politicians who immediately came to the Horseshow Association’s side against the community owe the community of West Vincent an apology.

When you read articles like this; Politicians react to Ludwig's Corner decision keep in mind that there is a bigger fight across the nation to give more rights to property than to communities. Most of the property by area in Pennsylvania that is privately owned is owned by corporations, mining companies, industry and much of our farmland is owned by real estate speculators. Right now we are witnessing drilling company’s efforts to overrun Pennsylvania’s community’s rights to clean water. I am suspicious of politicians who jump to defend property against the rights of a community.
Property rights are what mining and drilling companies and real estate speculators hold over the heads of communities. Over the years the real estate lobbies have whittled down our community rights. When a developer or mining company comes into a community the laws are already slanted in the properties favor. We should be championing community rights and not the property rights of corporations.

Our local communities once came together formed a militia and fought for their community rights against a big time property owner named King George of England. It's "We the People" not "I the property". 
“Property Rights and Responsibility  

All private property rights are completely dependent on the community. We maintain a right to our land only because we can record a deed at the county courthouse, which is supported by the community. We enforce our property rights through a legal system supported by the community. Our property would be worthless without roads and electric and telephone lines built by the community. We are safe and secure in our homes because of police and fire departments organized by the community. 
 Just as the community makes it possible for us to enjoy our property, each community has the right – the obligation, in fact- to ensure private property is used in ways that will benefit the long –term public interest.”
