DIRECTIONS: Enter the last name. Anything other than letters will be ignored. The last name will be converted to ALL CAPS and compared to last names in the database, also similarly converted so that Laforest matches La Forest because both are converted to LAFOREST. Likewise, OBrien, O'BRIEN, and Obrien will all be converted to OBRIEN for matching; hyphens and anything other than the 26 letters of the alphabet will be ignored.
Enter the first name the same way (optional). Again, it will be converted to ALL CAPS and anything other than letters is ignored.
Enter the date of birth, if desired. Enter the year, month and day in that order. To enter 24 July 1959 enter 19590724. You may enter the year alone, or the exact date.

The key to achieving economic justice and prosperity is to abolish the zoning restrictions. Immediately, an abundance of new jobs in demolition and construction will follow. The glut of new housing, meeting the latest code, would force down rents. Families could save money. If you want a house with a big yard, buy one, but bureaucrats backed by the long arm of the law have no right to force you to buy one.
Likewise, they force the builder to add a parking lot. Folks without cars obviously do not need that, but it increases their rents.
In a free country, somebody who buys all the land on a block could erect an apartment house from corner to corner. City Hall has no right to force them to add an off-street loading dock, but in practice it would be necessary because City Hall could forbid stopping on the street to load and unload moving vans. The ambulance would also need a place to park.
One hundred families living in one building will leak a lot less heat than one hundred single-family homes spread out on land that was recently a farm. With more persons waiting at each bus stop, bus companies could extend their hours and routes. In a free country, anybody could buy some buses, hire qualified drivers, and open a bus route.
If you have a car, dont move into a place without parking, genius.
There will be plenty of opposition from residents who dont want working class, immigrants and Black folks moving into their town. They think that a low traffic volume on their street is a right that belongs to folks who can afford a house on a side street. News flash: It is a public way.
Some landlords will face declining rents as the glut of new housing goes onto the market. Some will lose everything when they cannot make their mortgage payments. A similar thing happened in the 1860s when slaves were emancipated.
If you cannot afford to move into an affluent suburb, then you cannot vote there, but you can vote for pro-liberty candidates for the State legislature, a body that can eliminate zoning by State law.
