CASS SUNSTEIN IS CHOMPING AT THE BIT NOW!
Justice John Paul Stevens, at 89 the Supreme Court's oldest member, says he will decide in the next month or so whether this term will be his last.
Stevens tells The New Yorker magazine that he definitely will retire in the next three years. His comments suggest that President Barack Obama, whom Stevens says he admires, will likely nominate his successor.
Now it is no secret that President Obama's Regulatory Czar wants a seat on the Supreme Court. It is also no secret that Mr. Obama believes the Czar has a brilliant judicial mind and holds closely to the views of Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Stephen Breyer. Together with Justice Stevens, Justice Ginsberg is considered one of the five most liberal justices ever to serve on the bench.
Cass Sunstein is one of the most dangerous men in America! Who is he and why should we be afraid of him? Here is what you should know about the man who most likely will be the next Supreme Court Associate Justice. Click here to read more....
Mr. Sunstein wrote a book in 2006 entitled Infotopia: How Many Minds Produce Knowledge , explores methods for aggregating information; it contains discussions of prediction markets , open-source software , and wikis . Sunstein's 2004 book, The Second Bill of Rights: FDR's Unfinished Revolution and Why We Need It More than Ever , advocates the Second Bill of Rights proposed by Franklin D. Roosevelt . Among these rights are a right to an education, a right to a home, a right to health care, and a right to protection against monopolies; Sunstein argues that the Second Bill of Rights has had a large international impact and should be revived in the United States. His 2001 book, Republic.com , argued that the Internet may weaken democracy because it allows citizens to isolate themselves within groups that share their own views and experiences, and thus cut themselves off from any information that might challenge their beliefs, a phenomenon known as cyberbalkanization .
Sunstein co-authored Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness (Yale University Press, 2008) with economist Richard Thaler of the University of Chicago. Nudge discusses how public and private organizations can help people make better choices in their daily lives. Thaler and Sunstein argue that
People often make poor choices - and look back at them with bafflement! We do this because as human beings, we all are susceptible to a wide array of routine biases that can lead to an equally wide array of embarrassing blunders in education, personal finance, health care, mortgages and credit cards, happiness, and even the planet itself.
The ideas in the book proved popular with politicians such as Barack Obama , David Cameron , and the British Conservative Party in general (Cameron is party leader). The "Nudge" idea has not been without criticism. Dr Tammy Boyce of public health foundation The King's Fund has said:
We need to move away from short-term, politically motivated initiatives such as the 'nudging people' idea, which are not based on any good evidence and don't help people make long-term behavior changes.
This man also believes that animals have the right to have lawyers represent them and sue people in courts of law.
This man wants to ban ALL hunting in America.
This man wants ALL milk and dairy products removed from school lunches, and will use the FDA to accomplish this goal.
This man is far more dangerous than even Van Jones, because he can "nudge", and "tweak" regulations to accomplish his and Obama's Marxist goals!
America, beware! Cass Sunstein is the probable heir to Justice Stevens seat. You thought Justices Stevens and Ginsberg were liberal, wait until Justice Sunstein has been on the bench for awhile.
We believe that the Constitution of the United States speaks for itself. There is no need to rewrite, change or reinterpret it to suit the fancies of special interest groups or protected classes.
