If the US Senate approves President Obamam's nomination of Elena Kagan (pictured) for the US Supreme Court, it will be the end of the First Amendment right of free speech and move the US a giant leap closer to Obama's goal of making the US a socialist nation and becoming America's first dictator, states Newsmax.
Kagan is presently solicitor general, the top government lawyer who argues the administration's cases before the Supreme Court. She supports the idea that it is acceptable for the government to restrict any form of speech if it is deemed to be offensive to society or to the government.
Why would President Obama want to appoint someone to the US Supreme Court who has had no judicial experience whatsoever? Perhaps it has something to do with her undergraduate thesis where she wrote how it saddened her that socialism was declining in America, especially for those that wanted to change America.
It seems Americans are waking up to the eradication of what they believe is the First Amendment which says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances". Ms Kagan states: "Whether a given category of speech enjoys First Amendment protection depends upon a categorical balancing of the value of the speech against it's societal costs."
I'm delighted Americans are protesting about the election of Ms Kagan. Here in the UK we know how our freedom of speech has been diminished in the past 13 years, along with other liberties. Good luck to them.
