In my blog yesterday I mentioned Cass Sunstein who feels that the American people are like Homer Simpson and are too dumb to make decisions for themselves. I thought that some of you may not know who Cass Sunstein is and why we should care about his opinion.
Cass Sunstein is Obama's Regulatory czar that has not had to be approved by congress or the senate. His full title is Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. He is considered to be a scholar in the fields of constitutional law, administrative law, environmental law and behavioral economics. His current book is "Nudge" so titled because it teaches his followers how to nudge the American people in the direction they want us to go, just like cattle. He is married to Samantha Power, the National Security Council's Senior director for Multilateral Affairs. He sounds intelligent right so why is he so scary and why is he so dangerous to you and I?
He openly promotes a socialist bill of rights and has petitioned to redistribute America's wealth, he supports the abolition of marriage as a legal institution, and has pushed for a "New Deal of Fairness Doctrine" to regulate the news media along with other more radical goals.
At a conference in April of 2005 entitled "The Constitution in 2020" he sought to change the nature and interpretation of the Constitution by that year. If you do not know he has already begun with that goal, but that is for another post. On his blog he wrote that " I will be urging that it is important to resist, on democratic ground, the idea that the document (constitution) should be interpreted to reflect the view of the extreme right-wing of the Republican Party."
He has argued that an economic crisis can be used to usher socialism into the United States (sound familiar they are putting this into practice right now in Washington). and has said that economic crisis "provide the most promising conditions for the emergence of socialism in the U.S.
Not only does he support socialism in the United States he gives support to communism. He says that Americans emphasize the importance of civil and political liberties, above all free speech and freedom of religion, while communist nations stress the right to a job, health care and a social minimum." Sounds like Washington today doesn't it? Everyone should have a job, health care and social justice. That is not what America is based on. We all have according to the Preamble the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. There never was a guarantee that the government would provide those things for us. We must go out and get them ourselves.
He wants to redistribute America's wealth to poorer nations (again we will talk about this in future posts) He says that "It is possible that desirable redistribution is more likely to occur through climate change policy than otherwise, or to be accomplished more effectively through climate policy than through direct foreign aid." You should read some of the policies that his administration is trying to implement through the government and barring that through the United Nations to get around the policies here in America they are scary how they will affect you.
This last one is most curious and I am not sure how to interpret it. He feels that an adult dog or horse is more rational than a human infant and should, therefore be granted similar rights. He has gone so far as to suggest that animals be given the right to sue humans in court.
This man is scary and the fact that he is Obama's best friend and confidant makes him even more so. Obama does not make any decisions without input from Cass Sunstein and Sunstein is an avowed Socialist and Communist. Why is he allowed to make policy for us, the American people?
