What has Elena Kegan done to be on the Supreme Court?

Today on my radio program I spoke about the problems with Obama’s Nominee to the Supreme Court Elena Kegan. I even had a caller who spoke with me about the problems she presents. My opinion is and it stands with the opinion of many other Conservative Talk Radio Hosts, she is nothing more than a puppet for the Obama administration. I say that and the other hosts say that because she is exactly like Obama. She went Harvard Law School and so did Obama, she was really into Socialism, and so was Obama…
The problems I see with Ms. Kegan is that she has some negative thoughts about the Second Amendment, the First Amendment and has no Judicial Experience, which is not necessary but is something that usually makes someone qualified. If she is appointed to the Supreme Court she will be the first justice in 40 years to be nominated without being a judge beforehand. The last one was William Rehnquist.
Her theories and opinions about the First Amendment are the most shocking part about her. She believes that the Government should and does have the right to regulate Free Speech. She believes that if a statement can be seen or interpreted to be hateful or racist or bigoted or whatever it should be regulated by the government… I find this shocking and quite scary, who decides what is hateful, and who decides what is racist or bigoted. Will it be decided by the police? Will it be decided by the Government? Will there be a list of things that Americans cannot say that are regulated by a body or organization that if said will be punishable?
Hate speech does occur in this country, and it is something that is horrible and offensive… However it is called Free Speech for a reason, not because it is free there is no price for it; because there is a price in the bloodshed by those before us. It is called Free Speech because it is free from Government Regulation. The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United State of America states: “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 to peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” The Government according to the Constitution of the United States, states that the Government cannot abridge the freedom of speech.
Abridging the freedom of speech is exactly what Kegan wants to do and that is exactly what Obama wants her to do when she arrives at the Court. We all must remember that it was Obama that said that “Technology is putting pressure on Democracy.” Obama would much rather us be forced to listen to him, then for us to be able to get our information elsewhere. He would rather us be forced to listen to him, then be able to listen to Rush Limbaugh.
I called on my listeners to pay attention to this candidate and make sure that their Senator votes against this anti-constitution lady.
