Why Kagan Shouldn't Be Confirmed

In an email from Point of View, Kerby Anderson spells out the problems with Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court (besides the fact that she's never been a judge):

She believes that international law should take precedent over the Constitution. While Dean at Harvard Law, she dropped the required course on the Constitution and replaced it with a required course on international law.

She is pro-abortion and has contributed financially to pro-abortion groups. She also believes that abortions should be taxpayer funded.

She is anti-military. While Dean of Harvard Law School, she kicked military recruiters off campus in defiance of a federal law which had been upheld by the Supreme Court on a unanimous vote.

She is pro-homosexual stating she “abhorred” the military’s ban on open homosexual service calling it a “moral injustice of the first order.”

She believes that the government may ban political pamphlets and books during an election season, in violation of the First Amendment’s free speech protections.

She is pro-socialism once writing glowingly of "socialism’s greatness."
