I have long held that if an amendment to the Constitution increases individual freedom or increases the protection of individual rights, then it is a good thing. If it does the opposite, it is a bad thing. I would have no problem with amending the 5th Amendment to eliminate the last clause which implies a governmental entity has the authority to forcibly take private property for public use.
Yours,
Issodhos
