More on Alito from a former classmate #

Andrew Napolitano is a former classmate of Alito's at Princeton and a former New Jersey Superior Court judge now working for Fox News. He tells The Daily Princetonian: "Sam Alito is just what George Bush is looking for: a big government conservative who will almost always side with the government against the individual, and the federal government against the state."

That may be what George Bush is looking for, but what American in their right mind would ever want a Supreme Court justice who will "almost always side with the government against the individual"?

That reminds me of a qoute from a certain German politican of the 20th century: "It is thus necessary that the individual should come to realize that his own ego is of no importance in comparison with the existence of his nation; that the position of the individual ego is conditioned solely by the interests of the nation as a whole... that above all the unity of a nation's spirit and will are worth far more than the freedom of the spirit and will of an individual."
