Only 119 Days Remaining!

First Amendment Threatened

Obama’s Regulatory Czar, Cass Sunstein, reflects the radical nature of the Obama administration in several ways: In his beliefs that:

“Animals should be permitted to bring suit, with human beings as their representatives…”[i]

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution should be “…a two-tiered First Amendment with a distinction between high-value and low-value speech,”[ii]

In mocking conservatives on the 2nd Amendment, as believing a “trigger lock interferes with his efforts at self-defense against criminals,” [iii] and

In his belief that “There is no liberty without dependency…That is why we should celebrate tax day…” [iv](Emphasis added)
