"A [man's] home is his castle." If this is true, we are under seige. "Land of the free" Then why do we pay property taxes? Houses and the land they are built on are bought from banks who profit greatly from the transfer of ownerships. But they are not in the business of real estate. Banks who lend the money own the home, not the buyer. Not until the loan is paid for... if ever. If found that the ..."owner" cannot continue to pay, they forfiet and the bank forcloses. Banks are not "for" the people.
