    I think he does what he is doing for very specific reasons and because it is what he wants to do.  I think his clerks get information and viewpoints from RW interests and think tanks and legal "scholars" and build them into the opinions and dissents he issues.

    Personally, I think Thomas is in this up to his neck: the reactionary disassembly of the government.  

    Because that's what he believes in:  Get all you can, then blow up the bridge behind you. He's really an awful awful human being.

      He may believe that it is, but he's there because certain special interests wanted him there to push their agenda, which is NOT radical libertarianism. The biggest corporate welfare whores are "conservative" Republicans who are complete hypocrites. He's just one of their useful lunatics, like Scalia.

      It's like abortion. The GOP has been exploiting it for decades, but most Repubs give a rat's ass whether it's legal or not (so long as their wives, girlfriends, mistresses and daughters have access).
