Kavanaughs decisions and political statements are so off the wall, Ive called him a corporation masquerading as a human being. Corporations uber alles is his pre-eminent core philosophy. Public Citizens analysis of his judicial record (apart from his extremist political ideology) showed that in split-decision cases (which are the most ideologically revealing cases), Kavanaugh ruled 15 times against worker rights and two times for worker rights.

On consumer protection, he ruled 18 times for businesses and only four times for consumers. As for monopoly cases, he ruled two times for the corporation and zero times for market competition.
