Robert Bork has acted as the chief judicial adviser to Mitt Romney’s campaign in both 2008 and 2012. In introducing him in 2007, Romney said, “I wish he were already on the Supreme Court. He’s the kind of brilliant conservative mind that this court could use.” Here’s the video:
If that doesn’t scare the hell out of you, you need to learn more about Robert Bork. His authoritarian views on virtually everything are nothing short of appalling. He believes, for example, that the First Amendment protects only explicitly political speech and not literary, scientific or any other kind of speech. He also dismisses the 9th Amendment as a meaningless “ink blot” on the Constitution, which means that if the Constitution does not explicitly say that you have a right, you don’t have it. His ideas are not just bad, they would spell the end of anything remotely resembling a free society.
