UPDATE: Sadly for our nation, Cass Sunstein was confirmed today in a 57-40 Senate vote. Republican Senators Snowe, Lugar, Hatch, Voinovich, Bennett and Collins all voted for Sunstein. The complete vote breakdown is here.

Democrats rushed up the confirmation hearings for Obama’s “regulatory czar” Cass Sunstein yesterday, hoping we would be distracted by Barry’s big speech last night and they’d be able to ram him through. A few GOP Senators were able to slow down the vote until today, but the vote will happen at any time…probably after lunch.

Cass Sunstein is the most dangerous of all Obama’s czars. The power he would have is IMMENSE. Why? As regulatory czar, Sunstein’s job is to “tweak” our existing laws to make them “legal.” Huh?!! What’s worse is, his views are SO radical he makes Van Jones look like Ronald Reagan. For instance, Cass believes that animals are equal to humans in value, and that the Second Amendment is toilet paper.

Here are some choice quotes from Cass:

“Animals should be permitted to bring suit, with human beings as their representatives …”
– 2004 book Animal Rights: Current Debates and New Directions

“[A]lmost all gun control legislation is constitutionally fine. And if the Court is right, then fundamentalism does not justify the view that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to bear arms. ”
– Cass Sunstein, writing in his book, “Radicals in Robes”

“A system of limitless individual choices, with respect to communications, is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and
-Cass Sunstein, arguing for a Fairness Doctrine for the
Internet in his book, Republic.com 2.0 (page 137).

Read more about Sunstein here.

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.” Since you can’t be trusted to read the “politically correct” BS on the net, it must be changed.

It is IMPERATIVE that we call and email our Senators IMMEDIATELY today. Cass Sunstein must be stopped. To give someone so radical so much power is insanity. His potential for damage is limitless.
