Oppose Sotomayor for Supreme Court Justice!!!

Here is what Obama's pick for the U.S. Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor, said approvingly in regards to unions: "That's what unions do: protect those in the union from those not in the union." Indeed, that IS what unions do. That is one of their worst aspects. They create an in-group that is used to keep everyone else out. It is a form of approve-of discrimination. We see in this statement by Sotomayor that she does not support rule of law applicable to all people equally, but rather supports privileges for different groups. Someone who believes that government rightly should grant privileges, and that tribalism like that of unions is to be commended, has no business being on the Supreme Court. With this one statement, Sotomayor shows herself to be anti-progress, anti-liberty, anti-spontaneous order, a conservative in the worst sense of the term, supporting of groups over true democratic majority, favoring tribalist thinking that will set this country back to a time before we even started on this grand attempt to provide liberty to all.

If the good is equivalent with creating more and more complexity in the world, which includes the environment necessary to create spontaneous orders (general rules applicable to all equally), and the bad is what reduces complexity and brings humans back to a more primitive way of thinking and living (and evil is knowing this, and doing it anyway), then Sotomayor is definitely a bad choice and a bad justice. I don't think the Republicans in the Senate actually believe in liberty enough to oppose her appointment with all their will and might, so the best we can hope for is that she will be exposed for what she is, and the American people will oppose her so strongly we will benefit from the Senate being the cowards they are, meaning they will shoot down her nomination.

Oh, and do not think that Obama didn't pick a Hispanic woman by accident. He did so to make it all but impossible to oppose her. After all, who wants to be accused of being a racists and a sexist? This only goes to show how cynical and Machiavellian Obama really is.
