Hotel Lost Liberty and Constitution Park. True Libertarian Proposals?

The very definition of libertarianism is that the believer allows everyone to hold their own beliefs, as long as those beliefs don't impinge on anyone else's. Oliver Wendell Holmes said it best: "The right to swing your arm ends where the other person's nose begins."

That's why it's so surprising that libertarians are proposing to take by eminent domain Supreme Court Justices David Souter's home, along with Stephen G. Breyer's home.

Libertarians propose to rename these two homes Hotel Lost Liberty and Constitution Park as new attractions for New Hampshire. It's an obvious backlash from the Supreme Court's Kelo v. New London decision.

But is it right? Are such proposals truly libertarian?
