Mark Levin’s “Liberty Amendments”

Mark Levin's "Liberty Amendments"

Radio host Mark Levin’s new book, The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic, is one of the most focused, accessible, and aggressive political books you’ll ever find.  Levin’s thesis is that the balance of power between the three branches of the federal government, the states, and the American people has been distorted beyond the ability of conventional politics to repair.  After all, if the power of the legislature has been diminished relative to the executive, the executive has dispersed its disproportionate power into unelected bureaucracies, and the states are increasingly powerless vassals of Washington, then there is no way for the peoples’ representatives in Congress or state houses to draft laws that would correct the situation.  The entire point of this century-long quest to centralize power was to remove it from the clumsy hands of foolish American citizens.  We are spectators to a game show in Washington.  We might be able to vote a few of the contestants off the show, but we have no control over the rules of the game.

Levin aims to change the rules of the game… or, more properly, reset them, to restore the brilliant system put in place by America’s Founders.  With the situation explained and his goals set forth in a few introductory pages, he executes the rest of his book with the planning and precision of a SEAL team taking an objective.  Each of his proposed “Liberty Amendments” is laid out in a brief chapter that explains its importance, sources it to the writings of the Founding Fathers, and anticipates the more reasonable objections that would likely be raised.  Little time is wasted on the unreasonable objections, for Levin does not intend to address an audience of the stupid, greedy, or hysterical.  He also knows his statist adversaries are not interested in rationally discussing the death of the Leviathan they nourished for generations.

A Constitutional reset is necessary because the progressive project is a cascade of lost freedoms, designed so that each step is irreversible, and every inch of ground taken by the State is claimed forever.  The distribution of power to unelected bureaucrats is a key element of this process.  One of the Liberty Amendments “sunsets” all federal departments and agencies, unless Congress reauthorizes them every three years by majority vote.  Every big-ticket Executive Branch regulation would be subjected to review by a joint congressional committee.  This amendment would pull the plug on the unstoppable federal bureaucracy, forcing every department to perpetually justify its existence, and terminating President Obama’s beloved practice of circumventing Congress to legislate by decree.

Another Liberty Amendment likewise reins in the judicial branch, setting term limits for Supreme Court justices, and giving Congress the power to override Supreme Court opinions with a three-fifths vote, without risk of presidential veto.  Three-fifths of the state legislatures can also join forces to knock down a Court decision.  That’s a recurring theme of the Liberty Amendments: the restoration of both congressional and state power.  As Levin repeatedly reminds us, nothing worried the Founders more than the rise of a despotic national executive, such as the one we have now.  The original states never would have signed on to a federal government that turned them into puppets.  There were strong logical arguments against these outcomes, which power-hungry progressives understood quite well, back when they first set about overturning the Constitutional order.  Modern progressives don’t think they need to understand those arguments any more, because the foundation of the total State has been laid, and the clock can never be “turned back,” as one of their favorite slogans has it.  This should leave them at a severe intellectual disadvantage, if the Liberty Amendments become a topic of national debate.

Some of Levin’s proposed amendments are intended to clarify language that already exists in the Constitution, such as the much-abused Commerce Clause – lately interpreted as a warrant for unlimited federal control of all human activity, although the Founders most certainly did not intend it to be taken that way.  Our language has changed over the centuries, always in a way that expands the Left’s desire for centralized control.  The authors of the Constitution would find our current understanding of the word “commerce” to be utterly deranged – indeed, they might even ask what the point of their Revolution was, if “interstate commerce” was to become a writ for powers beyond the wildest dreams of daft old King George.

Two of the proposed Liberty Amendments are devastating blows against imperial federal power, making it easier for states to amend the Constitution, and giving them a brief window of opportunity to strike down both congressional legislation and Executive Branch legislation.  Levin also makes a compelling argument against the Seventeenth Amendment, which provided for the direct election of United States senators.  Senators were supposed to be instruments of the state legislatures, while the House of Representatives would be filled by popular vote.  I have never read a better explanation for why this was important, and how it gave state governments a vitally needed hand in the crafting of federal legislation.

I’ve also seen no better case made for term limits on Congress, as Levin astutely points out that not only do Jurassic representatives-for-life distort the distribution of power in Congress, but they invest a great deal of our national energy (and funding!) in maintaining their 85-percent-plus re-election rate.  Surely some of those “safe” districts would merely replace Retiring Party Drone A with New Party Drone B, but as it stands, far too many representatives discover they can most easily secure lifetime tenure by representing the Leviathan State instead of their constituents, tapping the federal treasury to purchase reliable voters.

The reason all of these goals must be accomplished through Constitutional amendment is that any other instrument of legislation or representation can be twisted to the purposes of the central State.  Levin makes an irrefutable case that we long ago passed the point of no return for reforming our bloated, degenerate, dying federal government by winning a few elections.  The people who rigged this system made certain to armor it against future dissent from unhappy voters – one man, one vote, one time, every step of the way, with each new progressive “achievement” promptly declared more immutable than the tattered old scrap of parchment kept under glass at the National Archives.  Having studied the provisions for a Constitutional convention, Levin is convinced that the high bar for state ratification of any proposed amendments will keep it from becoming a carnival of kooks.  The kooks are winning anyway.  What could they get by amending the Constitution that our eternal bureaucracy and despotic executive branch aren’t giving them, one lost liberty at a time?

If you want to bring the ship of state into drydock, instead of slightly adjusting its course, The Liberty Amendments provides an excellent set of schematics.  Levin’s strategy is the only way for the American people to have a say on all the things we’ve been told we don’t get to vote on any more.  Reading this book will help you appreciate the terrible magnitude of what we have lost, and the intractable nature of an arrogant system that dictates to us instead of representing us, appropriating the language of “democracy” to dignify what really amounts to quelling dissent against whatever the ruling class wants to do next.  And if you’re not already a Constitutional scholar of Mark Levin’s caliber, you might be surprised to learn just how accurately the supposedly out-of-touch and obsolete Founders predicted everything happening today.  Why, reading Chapter Eight of The Liberty Amendments, you’d think John Adams was taking daily delivery of the New York Times through a time warp.  I suspect he and his peers would have little argument with Levin’s recommendations.

    KayK2 totally agree that the Rubio betrayal is living proof our system is easily corruptible, once the lobbyists further infect the already infected, diseased minds like Schumer, the commie, McCain the indina lobbyist for untold millions of untaxed dollars, and the tea party patriot turned traitor, who have the nerve to call themselves a “gang”. Turncoat Rubio is the scum of them all. At least the Schumers and Feinsteins are consisitently fascist communist, but Rubio? sick!
    Does anybody have any idea how many corporations are financing this so called
    amnesty, that is actually the creation of a new government controlled labor union?

    “It is your service that makes you speacial, not your oath. ”
    You are still missing the point. The ‘service’ does not make us special, maybe today, but it shouldn’t. Our military is a civilian military, ultimately controlled by civilians. As we travel the world, and see how the rest of it lives, the meaning of the “oath” begins to grow and swell in us. That is why it is not uncommon to see some returning Veteran get down on his hands and knees and kiss the tarmac unpon return to the States.

    I think this is the best answer so far: Citizen Grand Jury
    “It is the duty of the People to govern themselves and to secure their
    government by participating as a Jurist:
    If we the people can reinstate Justice and demand that elected officials
    and bureaucrats obey the law or be indicted, we would have then
    succeeded in reinstating the Constitution!”

    All talk of reforming, fixing, correcting, cleansing government is just subterfuge. There is nothing wrong with government, except that government IS wrong. The fix is to do away with government. Government cannot hope to fix our problems because government is the cause of ALL our problems.

  • kthomp1123

    Levine, Hannity, Rush – none of them have the guts of our Founder’s.
    I don’t see any of them pledging their life, honor, or good fortune.
    None of them will run for public office, go up there and fix it. None of them will go up and there and fight.
    No…Levine will make millions off books and radio…but won’t step up and do a damn thing about it.

  • carolina mama

    And replace it with total anarchy?

    Government can serve a positive purpose, if and when those elected to positions of power in government make use of the authority and power that has been granted to them in an appropriate manner.

  • Pete Wagner

    Do your research, creep. It’s all on line, clear as day.

  • 24601

    I think he’s been clear about the differences. On the one hand, you have interests abroad. You have to. You have to have some leverage in those dealings. It does no good to try to figure out who started generations-old conflicts, but you have to meet force with force.

    On the other hand, you can’t just remove dictators without seeing to the stability of the nation you’ve altered. This is why we needed to stay in Iraq once Saddam was deposed. You see what happens when you don’t commit to that (Egypt, Libya. . . )

    You can’t simply remove dictators just because you have the ability. There are consequences to that.

    But yeah, if you ignore those distinctions, I can see how that might seem schizo…

  • doctorivey

    The people living in America, you mean. Not The American People. Throw out all the illegals and things would have gone down much differently.

  • 24601

    So the best course is to not try? That kind of attitude is why this perception exists quite frankly.

  • independent_forever

    I’ve only just started reading it but so far EXCELLENT!!! This is EXACTLY what we need and ALL of us need to start taking back our country to move forward. Think about this…does anyone believe this book would have even been published IF our government was allowed to continue down this centralization path? It’s a lock censorship would be at the top of their to do list and ideas like this would never see the light of day…this is what Levin is saying too indirectly…these ideas threaten the progressive agenda and do you think they are sitting on their hands waiting…no…progressives are constantly chipping away and attacking freedoms of the individual and we MUST rise up and fight back….this country CAN DO IT and as Levin said…we aren’t the first country to have to deal with this issue and won’t be the last…but we need to fight back ASAP….I’m in and going to do what I can to push my State reps to this end and start standing up for US for a change….

  • Jordan S

    Levin wrote a great book, but it’s also a call to action. His ideas do no good unless they are actually implemented. I have had the opportunity to work for an organization called the Convention of States Project. It’s a project of Citizens for Self-Governance, and it’s committed to urging and empower American citizens to call a convention of states.

    Our organization is growing quickly–more people are signing up every day and one of our leaders, Michael Farris, is going on the Huckabee TV program on Saturday to discuss it.

    If you want to actually _do_ something about this, if you want to turn Levin’s dream into reality, visit out website and sign up! Just Google “convention of states citizens for self-governance.”

  • Kosh94

    DEMAND??? HOW? It’s not like we can get a few thousand carloads of folks out in front of Harry Reids house and DEMAND he do anything. We have to do it with HONEST ELECTIONS, an UNBIASED PRESS, and educated (not liberal indoctrination) voters.

  • Dugway

    McCain? USMC? He’d chase you around (though not likely catch you) for that – he’s Navy through and through.

    So in the near future when you have succeeded in getting rid of the last wealthy Americans who will pay for your bling?

  • Jordan S

    …and the Convention of States Project is there to help. By all means, contact your state rep today–everyone should. But if you sign up for the Convention of States Project, we’ll connect you with more opportunities in the future to make a convention of states a reality.

  • Jean

    We can help…

  • Baxter4315

    My mistake. Levin is talking about article 5 of the Constitution, not article 5 of the Second amendment.

  • Kosh94

    WRONG!!! The Constitution was written TO LIMIT GOVERNMENT! The FF had already seen what happens with tyrants running things. The constraints ARE ON THE GOVERNMENT not the people. DEMOCRATS have been hating this lack of control while ‘in power’ so JA’s like the current Elected Liberal Stooges want to change it.

  • Jean

    They ARE excellent at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory…

    But you presume there are, in fact, two parties with differing ideology.

    Talk.

  • snaketrapper

    Good try, Mark Levin, but no cigar because the battle for liberty cannot be won from inside the box of politics where it was doomed from the beginning!

    Hans Hoppe shows how to win it once & for all from the outside with his idea of a Private Law Society in a pol-free America.

  • Jean

    You left out the Jury box (nullification), which has ALSO failed (it’s determined to be obstructing law enforcement, and canr esult in criminal fines and prison.)

  • IllKeepMine

    Response translation: YOU HAVE NO PROOF. My characterization of you before is still correct.

  • snaketrapper

    Recommend you read Hans Hoppe’s The Great Fiction instead for info on how to actually fix this mess. (Hint: it’s a lot easier than most would think.)

  • Jean

    Incorrect: We changed the whole question of State’s Rights (and Citizen’s rights) in 1865, then the Union won the “Civil War” / War of Federal Aggression (Replacing Northern, though there’s little difference: it’s just to make the point.)
    Federalists wanted a strong, centralized government.
    Now we need to clean up their mess.
    [and if you REALLY want to get down to brass tacks: The Constitution was a coup, replacing the Articles of Confederation, and George Washington, in fighting the Whiskey Rebellion, was instrumental in sending us down this path, as he ALSO believed in a strong, central government. That comma is not a splice, either.]

  • dabba

    Kosh94 is correct. The Constitution was created to give only certain powers to the federal government. Any powers other than those enumerated powers explicitly named in the Constitution are left to the states, or to the people.

  • snaketrapper

    In his books Hans Hoppe shows that the only thing we the people need to learn is that we are being scammed through Big Bro and how to make his handlers cry like girly men.

  • OdinsAcolyte

    Only a complete overhaul will fix our government. It must be done often. Government wants to expand its power and protect itself. It is our duty to limit it and keep it small. It is time to nourish the Tree of Liberty.

  • skeagles67

    One only needs to read this comment board to understand why this country is in this position. It has already balkanized into dozens, if not hundreds, of political groups all pulling at the center with different idea as to how we should be governed. No two people can even agree on the problem, let alone a solution. I know one thing though, it was self serving political interests whose only interest was expanding federalist power and central control of our lives, which brought us to this juncture, and clearly, politics will never get us out of this predicament. No matter how original or common-sense the solution is. We’ve gone way past that, and a total flushing and re-birth is all that can be done now. And it’ll be bloody.

  • marvinkeene

    Mark’s Liberty Amendment ideas have merit. I like them. However, it is chafing to have to use the amendment process because the text of the Constitution and the original intent behind them already supports the liberty side of things.
    If we could ever get a liberty President, we could actually use the ridiculous power of that office to accomplish a rollback. Such a president would have to be fully committed to this goal and have more than 1/3 of the Senate behind him to sustain him against impeachment and a willingness to ignore the inevitable federal injunctions.
    You see our current president has said that he would not enforce certain laws because he claims that they are unconstitutional. One could build that precedent into “Executive Review” equal to the extra-constitutional “Judicial Review” process claimed by the Supreme Court after Marbury v Madison.
    A liberty president could unilaterally exert the negative power to nullify laws and agencies of government that he argues are unconstitutional. One could eliminate wide swaths of the federal government that way, nullify the regulations that they have spewed out over the years and do a big reset that way. One could fire the government workers doing unconstitutional tasks, turn off the electricity and water to their office buildings along the way.
    Opponents of this would howl with rage and if they could get an amendment specifically prohibiting executive review, they could stop this. One could ignore the courts as previous presidents have successfully done claiming the privilege as a co-equal branch of government. One would also have to survive the inevitable impeachment attempt, the almost certain strikes by government employees unions and probable assassination attempt as well, but it could be done if the president had the will to do so.

  • Baxter4315

    Prior to the 17 amendment Senators were appointed by the state legislatures. There also should be 1 Representative in the House for every 35,000 people in a state. Would you care to count how many we have? 435 is not proper representation under the Constitution. The Constitution is looked at as a suggestion by far too many people.

  • wiredone

    Please go back to school. Pretty much everything you just wrote is factually in correct.

  • BenCartwright33

    The Liberty Amendments are a lot like abolishing the IRS, instituting a flat or fair tax, abolishing the Department of Education (and most other federal departments), and many other proposals to downsize government. These are all great ideas that will never happen, because there are too many people who have a vested interest in perpetually expanding government. It is true that the Constitutional amendment process provides avenues to change things that have been lost by conventional means, but I suspect that the same massive, corrupt, left-wing forces that rigged the last presidential election would also have much success in wreaking havoc in this endeavor, as well. They will not give up their titanic super-state without a fight. But heck, it’s worth a try, isn’t it?

  • LonghairedOverfedLeapingGnome

    Your friends must be a minority in the Az. Republican Party. McCain isn’t going anywhere.

  • petitemouse

    Mark Levin is very correct with the review/ renewal of bureaucracy.
    One needs to go farther than that restriction. The person who
    works in the bureaucracy must be released at the end of five years.
    His work for the govn would be his reward, and on his resume as
    a person of ethics and team orientation. Unemployment would
    be given for one year. After five years in a govn position the person
    will have many contacts with business and charities where
    they could find lawful employment in the private sector of the USA.
    No more public employee unions.

  • Why_So_Worried

    I did not get your point, you are right. in addition to civilian control of the military, there are so few places with an independant judiciary and true free press with a strong tradition against prior restraint (I know there are exceptions, but it is almost us and India that ring the bell loudly on all three as far as I can tell–India, who knew?) Even though a person can learn about these things, you appreciate them differently. In Argentina, sure they thought that the Lewisnsky scandal was a joke and that we were fools to make so much of it….BUT their respect for the fact that we actually had the mechanisms of governement to hold someone accountable for their behavior was more than they could hope for themselves. In Russia, lots of people assume that in the US a business can go to the New York Times and pay them to write a damaging story about a competitor. In lots of democracies with a “free” press, as long as the government finds out first, a newspaper can be prevented from publishing something without readers even knowing about it. Sadly, we also used to be just about the last place on earth where our communications weren’t intercepted without a warrant and/or due process. Other than that flagrant foul, which needs to be fixed, there are plenty of reasons not to hate our government and where our country is today.

  • AK

    There’s too much here to criticize every detail, but the one that stood out to me: “Three-fifths of the state legislatures can also join forces to knock down a Court decision.” This wouldn’t be restoring a Republic, this would be restoring Democracy. If you don’t know the difference between the two, lets just hope you’re never in the minority.

    Levin talks big, but it’s only to pander to a specific audience that’s gained popularity as of late. Political talking-heads are no different than Politicians; they’ll say anything that’s popular to gain more of what they want: power. Levin is just looking to make a quick buck off the anti-statist movement that is taking place in America.

  • taconite

    The trick is trying to implement it. The statists will fight it tooth and nail, funded by the taxes collected from all of us.

  • Giordano_Bruno

    The simple act of buying Levin’s book is probably one of the best (and cheapest) ways there is to let the Establishment GOP know how angry We the People are, and that we demand action!

    This is the problem I see. In the past revolution, the vast majority of the people wanted their freedom from the government and were even willing to fight for it.

    That, sadly, is not the case today. We have almost half the country who want and depend on the government to give them things. They like big government and the liberal politicians know it. They use this dependency to buy votes and keep their power. Under these conditions, how do we “reset” the government?

  • DaveHolden

    Most of our problems arise because we have allowed a cabal to hijack the country in favor of a foreign country – Israel. What does LEVIN say about that, eh?

    Without our Israel-first policy we would not have been attacked on 9/11.

    We are no longer a Republic but a gaggle of hundreds of desperate special interest groups with no concern beyond their own cause. Liberty is considers old fashion and the only worthwhile cause seems to be taking from one group to give to another. Flush the whole mess. Replacing one special interest with another through term limits will accomplish only one thing: Different Special Interests. That idea borders on foolishness.

    If anyone has his email address please forward this to him and to the House – thanks

  • We Broke It

    Great Book, but it’s too late, Levin. These excellent recommendations will never be implemented. America is doomed – she is in steep, irreversible decline and history will show quite clearly that Obama takes the lion’s share of the blame. 100,000,000 people on food stamps, $5 Trillion added to the national debt, racial tensions sparked by Barry’s own words of prejudice and intolerance, the list is nearly endless of this man’s faults. A man who would have no problem with killing a new born baby who survived an abortion attempt is not worthy of any government office let alone the highest in the land. 2016 – good riddance Obama, but unfortunately, there may be nothing left to look forward to here. Thanks for taking America to the grave, traitor.

    No, our support of Israel is, though.

  • dabba

    I’m all for cheaper oil. Tell it to the liberals and environmental whackos who won’t let us drill for our own oil. We have plenty if we’ll just go get it.

    And as for a the “enemies” you speak of, I assume you mean all of the Arab countries who hate Israel. Well, regardless of our support for Israel, they would hate us anyway because we are a Christian nation. They just use Israel as an excuse.

  • kitman3

    The Founders warned us about the rise of a political class and we let it happen.
    We have progressive’s to thank for the institution of the political class when they convinced the public that the government was going to solve all their problems because they know what’s best for us.
    Think Wilson and FDR
    Progressivism is the real disease infecting our Republic.
    I can not wait to read Levin’s book!

  • TomJoadisJob

    It goes way back to the founding when the “Jews” got started in America, right?

  • petitemouse

    Mark Levin’s book is about decentralizing
    our federal govn. States regain there independence
    from the federal govn.

  • utahnews

    When Levin was interviewed recently on Fox news, he said that the two methods to make these changes was either by Constitutional Amendment passed by 2/3 majority of Congress and going out to the states for ratification which won’t happen or getting 33? states to call for a Constitutional Convention, then once convened, debate and discuss these amendments he is proposing.

    The problem with a Constitution Convention is that once it kicks off there is NO LIMIT on what can be debated and changed in the Constitution. Meaning everything is or could be on the table. You can also correctly make the case that the convention delegates will not all be of one political stripe, or another, but a mixture of all, conservatives, liberals, moderates, republicans and democrats.

    This is what will happen. The convention would be the biggest political circus ever seen in America. All the news organizations will breathlessly be reporting. It will probably be a live event with the news title of “Constitutional Convention America, the document gets re written” The pressure on the delegates will be immense. The names of the delegates will be known in advance so unless all communication is totally cut to inside the convention, there is always the possibility of outside pressure being put on delegates family/friends. Since the location of the convention will be known in advance, you can absolutely guarantee that the place will be bugged and monitored with secret communication channels to the outside world available. This could be as simple as cell phones hidden in different locations so that information can flow back and forth or something more serious. You will also have all the special interest groups/media/big business putting pressure on the delegates or making back room deals with friends and family to make this or that change to suit their cause. Back room deals will be cut between the delegates.

    If you are anti abortion, you could have pro abortion language written into the new Constitution. If you are pro abortion you could have anti abortion language written into the new Constitution. If you are pro gun, you could have the Second Amendment taken out, altered or changed to reflect that only the Government can have guns. If you are support the existing first amendment you could have that changed, altered or modified.

    Any group or organization who is helping out at the convention, say the caterers, garbage collectors or whom ever, will also be being used as conduits to get information out or in. The list goes on and on.

    Picture everything that everybody dislikes about Congress (back room deals, lobbyists, special interest groups promoting their special interests, bribary etc happening on a grand scale because every knows that what comes out of the convention is final, is the new Constitution, will not be able to be changed by the courts.

    Even if changes are made to the Constitution, if you have an branch of the government (Executive, Legislative, or Judicial) that decides that it can’t, or won’t follow the law (we have never had that… yeah right) and the other branches don’t do anything about it, all the changes don’t mean anything anyways. Which is where our nation is at now.

    For example in recent days it has come out that the Treasury ran a 98 billion dollar deficit for the month of July, yet the national debt has been sitting at 25 million dollar under the so called Statutory limit that was passed by Congress and signed by the President for 89 days so far. Anybody with a brain can tell you that the government has well blown past that law and spending is going on in a normal fashion and nobody is going to do anything about it.

    The point is that even if a Constitutional Convention is called to debate 2 or 3 or 4 changes, the convention itself can and likely will do much, much more. Said another way a convention may be called and go in planning to debate 2 or 3 changes, they can do whatever they want to our existing document. The pressure from all the different political stripes and special interest groups will be on the delegates to make those changes.

    If somebody says something like “The delegates can’t do that…” Who says they can’t. As I recall that is how we got our existing Constitution. In the end all of America will have to then live with what a small number of delegates of all political persuasions decide in the convention good or bad.

    That’s an unfair characterization. Certainly, there are those who fit that mold but I believe they are a distinct minority. More common, would be those like me, who believe it’s the only way. Special interests by the hundreds and thousands control this country, and they fill fight to keep that power. It will have to be wrested from them through force of arms. That doesn’t mean that I, or any like me, wish to see that, only that it will come to pass.

    companies, and public employee unions that are
    over ruling every sensible request of the middle class.
    Let us have our say at bargaining tables for public employee

    First off, how do you know?

    Is your source the same media that regularly tells lies about you and your beliefs?

    under desks and knew every fallout shelter on our walk
    home. Then they scared us with global cooling. Next it
    was guns in the hands of criminals. So it goes. So it always
    is. The people in power from the beginning of time ruled
    through fear.

  • ElesisStar

    Pay attention to the machinations at play. The progressive socialist movement can only thrive with a populace that’s weak and infirm. They cannot survive in a country of rugged individuals, as the US was prior to 1965 because such people don’t want hand outs -only the freedom to succeed. That is why liberals changed the immigrations laws in the 60s to allow banana republic immigrants to overrun this country. That is why they promoted victimization amongst the black population. Unfortunately, they have succeeded in their goal of laming America within a 50 year time span. Detroit is a prime example of what our country will look like if the so called progressives succeed.

  • JustAGirl

    Fail. Rubios parents were both still cubans at the time he was born. Even if his mom WAS a U.S. citizen, he would STILL be a Cuban/American. Natural Born Citizenship REQUIRES BOTH parents be citizens, and be born in the country. Minor v. Happersett. 1874. Do some freaking research, fool.

    Minor lost her case because a Natural Born Citizen could not use the 14th Amendment for anything including voting rights, then SCOTUS DEFINED the term Natural Born Citizen.

    Yeah, same problem Oblidiot has. EXACTLY the same.

    If you went to the link you wouldn’t be asking that question. Honest elections? What good are they when you don’t have honest candidates?

    hopefully the eradication of the muzzie brotherhood in Egypt will spread to the democrat brotherhood here in the states

  • George Johnson

    The problem is, you STILL need these people to vote for this stuff. Like pay cuts for congress, healthcare for them (being the same as ours…) term limits etc…

    They will NEVER, EVER vote themselves something less. ALWAYS more. They just cut a deal so they don’t have to use this monstrosity called obamacare.

    If they are unwilling to do even that, then they will NEVER vote themselves anything less, like term limits etc…

    Sadly, we really are almost at the point of revolution being our only recourse. And, unlike the previous revolution, where the loyalists, were kicked out, in this case, the radical liberals, will have to be punished, or put to death. They have acted as traitors as far as I am concerned, acting from within to destroy this country.

    Dave, you seem to live and breathe this hatred for Jews and Israel. What did tiny Israel ever do to deserve this level of wrath? Being the only democracy in the Middle East hardly seems to warrant such contempt! You act like a bunch of guys in 1948 suddenly said “Let’s invade Palestine!” when it was in fact it was the major post-war powers that simply said that it was time to end the diaspora and return the Jews to their traditional homeland. The whole world — except for the Islamists — thought that this was the right thing to do for an ethnic group that has been a target of persecution for over 2000 years! For the life of me, I could never understand this self-destructive hatred of Jews. If you have a constructive argument to make, then make it. But don’t reject what Levin has to say simply because he’s Jewish.

  • skeagles67

    “Half-wits, foil-capped cretins” with “half a functioning brain”. Moi?

  • lokijon

    I understand and agree with your point that Senators should be selected by state governments and that the House of Reps. should better represent communities instead of regional conglomerates. However, keep in mind that considering our current population, the 35,000 cap would amount to over 9000 U.S. Representatives. Do we really want more politicians in DC, or do we want better representation? Likewise, expanding the Capitol grounds to accommodate all those Reps. would cost $ billions (think about all the tax money spent of the Capitol visitors center and multiply that) and the annual operational costs of office space, power, salary, staff, travel, etc. would amount to about $18 billion a year (roughly $2 million per office)

  • coffee4closers

    They don’t call Mark Levin ” The Great One” for nothing ! After reading this EXCELLENT piece, I am salivating to buy this book…I’ve always loved Levin’s rightful outrage of the creation, coddling, and expansion of this federal Leviathan by do-good elites, addicted to power, subjugating us and our children to certain servitude ; now I can finally read WHAT WE MUST DO….

  • CharlesRAnderson

    I have also advocated a sunset rule in which agencies and departments have be given a renewed contract and in which any prior legislative act has to be renewed periodically. One of the good things in this is that Congress will be kept so busy re-justifying its past acts that it will have less time to devote to new mischief and tyrannies.

    Levin’s idea that rulings of the Supreme Court can be overruled by a 60% vote has the percentage set too low. If such a provision is useful, and I have severe doubts on this, the override percentage ought to have to be more like 80 to 90%. I like the idea that either the House, the Senate, the President, or the Supreme Court can prevent a new law from taking effect. We have too many laws now by far. But in that vein, I favor the idea that 60% of the state legislatures can overturn any federal law. Laws should have to be supported by a strong, not a weak, majority of the People. In fact, the simple majority vote in the House and Senate was a big mistake.

  • prov6yahoo

    “Government has positive purpose when those elected to positions of power make use of the authority and power that has been granted to them in an appropriate manner” HA!! When has that EVER happened?? NEVER!! You MUST work for government if you spout propaganda such as that. Government is like salespeople: needless middlemen.

    Government propagandists have always tried to make people think anarchy means something negative. Anarchy simply means no government. Of course governments everywhere desire people to believe that not having government would be a terrible thing, but it is government that we should truly be afraid of. Governments’ killed over 200 million people in the 20th century alone. In fact the ONLY things governments do well is theft and murder. Anarchy simply means freedom to do whatever you wish as long as you harm no other person or harm no other person’s property. Most people think we have that type of situation now, or at least are supposed to have it, but do not know that is also the meaning of anarchy. Notice that I say other persons and other persons’ property. Government loves to use the drug war, psychiatry, prosecuting victimless crimes, etc… to protect us from ourselves, but these are really just more ways for the governments to control us.

    I do not need a leader, especially if it is someone who believes as you do.

    Oh my God, Why_So_Worried is trapped in the conspiracy thoughts raging on in his mind.

    Let’s hope one of his liberal friends will recognize the symptoms and seek psychiatric help.
    I’ve seen this happen to liberals before. It always occurs when a liberal unexpectedly encounters reality. Their feeble minds can’t accommodate realism and socialistic fantasy at the same time.

    The overload symptoms include incoherent babbling, a wild eyed appearance and gesticulating body movements.
    It would be wise to keep an appropriate distance to avoid the escaping intestinal gases of the afflicted liberal.

    After the unfortunate liberal recovers his senses, he feels no chagrin because he invariably experiences a short term memory loss about the bizarre episode. The only residual indication that one of these liberals might notice is a modest amount of fecal matter in his drawers.

    Dear readers, if you witness such a spectacle, please afford the liberal some latitude and don’t subject them to a description of what just transpired. As a mental defective he has enough problems on his plate already.

  • ElesisStar

    I agree with Levin’s analysis but I think he misses what has to the biggest flaw in the US constitution, which is its failure to curb the government’s ability to print/borrow money. The government can only tax so much but it can print an unlimited amount of money. It is this access to phoney money that has allowed the left to wreck the USA.

    So, what does Levin say about the wholesale selling-out of the US for Israel brokered by AIPAC? The multiple TRILLION dollar wars for Israel (all while Israel jumps up and down demanding we attack Iran for them next) The POLICE STATE in place now to protect GOVERNMENT (Americans are not only not protected but the government would WELCOME an attack on YOU – it means they can grow government even more) is because of our sickening Israel-first policy. Who could blame people for hating the American GOVERNMENT (all good conservatives should anyway.) What would you do if China built a country within the US? According to the Israel apologists here, the proper reaction would be the shrug and accept it. And that would likely happen since Americans have been bred to be compliant and accept evil.

    I don’t recall this being in the Constitution. But Levin conveniently ignores it.

And naysayers like Karl Rove who give up without a fight. Karl said recently we can’t fight ObamaCare until we have a Republican president in the White House. He further shot himself in the foot when he said Obama wants the Republicans to fight against ObamaCare because it is a trap like the birth certificate issue. Well Karl, the only reason the birth certificate issue was not a gigantic win for patriots is because when Obama presented a counterfeit document YOU and the entire rule class when silent. Sheriff Joe Arpaio in a series of forensic videos available on YouTube showed conclusively that the birth certificate is as phony as a $3 bill. If this was a winning issue for Obama it was because YOU and the entire media are afraid to point out that the president is engaged in criminal document fraud, and a conspiracy to defraud America.

    As an example: my parents kept their school books. I have had plenty of views to read – it’s amazing how things are changed to fit the politics of the day. It’s right out of 1984.
    Maybe you need to broaden your horizons?
    For instance: The Constitution enabled the creation of the central bank. In other words: The very system of banking that the colonists had just rebelled against, was to be instituted in the new world. Representatives left the congress because of that.
    How is that NOT a coup, when the convention was to, in fact, revise the Articles – yet the Articles of Confederation were abandoned completely?
    Functionally – the Civil War ensured that the FedGov had THE absolute say. Citizens could go along – or get shot. Note that the closest argument you could make against such a notion is Prohibition, the Volstead act. It allowed states (even counties, IIRC) to decide what they would and would not allow. It also gave birth to organized crime and extreme government interference, a la “The Untouchables,” Federal agents who answered to effectively NO ONE.
    Further, Lincoln threw out even the Declaration of Independence from our concept of America: Read the Preamble to the Declaration, I’ve pasted it here:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
    That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

    Is that not what the Southern states attempted: to alter or abolish their form of government, as it no longer had their consent, and because it was destructive of their aims to secure Safety and Happiness?
    Even Lincoln admitted such was their right (You’ll have to Google for that; he said it was legal, but not economically practical, IIRC.)
    So, in response, Lincoln incited war; claimed the Union had been attacked (comparable to a bully holding you by the shirt with his arm cocked – but he doesn’t strike you, he just waits and laughs); suspended the Constitution (rights of Habeas Corpus being a primary offender); proceeded to destroy the South through warfare and destruction, such as Sherman’s March to the sea, which included burning plantations, looting and pillaging, and other such loving acts; isolated the South diplomatically, ensuring foreign powers wouldn’t aid them (culminating in the Emancipation Proclamation, a useless piece of dross – it only “freed” slaves in areas still in “revolt” against the Union, not areas under Union control for instance – and being unenforceable anywhere the Union had no control, was pointless except as a political ploy); And, by blockading ports, to ensure that there would be no trade, and hence – no supplies. Which, BTW, includes FOOD in the cash-crop economy of the time.

    Lastly, the assassination of Lincoln ensured there would be Reconstruction. (We can argue about whether or not Reconstruction would’ve occurred regardless separately.) It is KNOWN, however, the Lincoln wanted reconciliation; it is also known the Congress wanted to punish the Rebels. The Carpetbaggers were very destructive, but they did ensure the punishment of those “evil white slave-holders” – who no longer had slaves, nor food, and had to rebuild their entire society, courtesy of Sherman.
    There’s more to history than you were taught in school. Get your hands on some older textbooks; go read primary sources. We may still not agree, but don’t even BEGIN to think SKOOL taught you anything useful, except to color inside the lines (which put braces on your brain when you were too young to realize what happened.)

    Most importantly, Israel is given everything militarily AND awarded contracts for things that would OTHERWISE go to American companies and hire Americans (a double whammy.)

    Sheriff Mack has shown the way. Highest authority in the county is the sheriff. Feds have no authority – everything must be done with the sheriff’s permission.

    Remember this from last year?

    WHY GINGRICH CANNOT BEAT OBAMA by Michael Savage

    When He Was Speaker Of The House, Gingrich
    Failed To Deliver On His so-called Contract With America. He was fined $300,000 for ethics violations and forced to resign by his fellow Republican Congressmen.

    He Made TV Ads With Nancy Pelosi Promoting The False Theory Of Global Warming.

    He made an Education Bus Tour with Race-Baiting-Hustler Al Sharpton.

    He’s In Favor Of Amnesty for Illegal Aliens.

    He’s Taken Almost $2 Million Dollars From Fannie Mae And Freddie Mac, Two Of the most Corrupt Financial Institutions In US History.

    He’s Cheated multiple times On his first Two Wives And left Both Of Them While They Were Both Seriously Ill Which Will Destroy His Chances Among Female Voters.

    He Undermined The Republican (Paul Ryan’s) Plan To Reform Medicare by Calling it “Right Wing Social Engineering.”

    Newt was for the Individual Healthcare Mandate before he was against it.

    In A Presidential Debate against Obama, regardless of How Well He Does rhetorically, on television, He Will Come Off Badly Compared to Obama and Look Like Nothing More Than What He Is: A Fat, Old, Rich, White Guy. (By Michael Savage)

    As long as the American people are goaded by the specter of the never-ending fraudulent “War in Terror”, Levin just wasted a year of his precious time, not to mention the countless trees that will be lost to the hard copy of his tome.

    Now, the question is…are Americans in control of Washington, DC, or was Washington, DC co-opted decades ago. If Washington, DC was co-opted decades ago, Levin’s solutions will go nowhere.

    Was Washington, DC co-opted, then? Of course, and here’s what was happening wile your government and media lulled you into a slumber:

    Google: ‘Photos: Antonov An-12BK-PPS Aircraft Pictures | Airliners net’

    and

    Google: ‘MiG-23UB Share this photo on forums’

    Then for Russian Naval vessels (take a look at what’s still appended to the bows)…

    Google (enlarge picture): ‘Russia seeks sea power with decrepit fleet Base expansion likely an empty threat’

    Those pictures were taken in 2009, 2011 and 2001, respectively, not before the “collapse” of the USSR. As you can see, the Soviet era nationality emblem of the Communist Party…the Red Star… is still present. That political symbol of the Soviet government would have been immediately removed in early 1992 if the “collapse” of the USSR were genuine. As the legal emblem of the USSR and the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, the Red Star emblem can only be present if Communists are still in power in Russia and the other 14 republics that made up the USSR.

    Now, for the main paper of the Russian Ministry of Defense…

    Google: ‘Krasnaya Zvezda’

    “Krasnaya Zvezda” is Russian (no kidding!) for “Red Star”, the official newspaper of Soviet and later Russian Ministry of Defense. The paper’s official designation is, “Central Organ of the Russian Ministry of Defense.” Note the four Soviet emblems next to the still existing Soviet era masthead, one of which pictures Lenin’s head!

    The fraudulent “collapse” of the USSR (and East Bloc) couldn’t have been pulled off until both political parties in the United States (and political parties elsewhere in the West) were co-opted by Moscow & Allies, which explains why verification of the “collapse” was never undertaken by the West, such verification being (1) a natural administrative procedure (since the USSR wasn’t occupied by Western military forces); and (2) necessary for the survival of the West. Recall President Reagan’s favorite phrase, “Trust, but verify”.

    Now you know why the hated Communist Red Star is still placed on the bows of NEW Russian Naval vessels (and the wings of Russian military aircraft), and why the “electorates” of the 15 republics that made up the USSR continue to “elect” for President Soviet era Communist Party Quislings. There have been 52 such Presidential “elections” since the “collapse” of the USSR, resulting in 40 Soviet era Communist Party member Quislings being elected. That’s 76.92%! If the “collapse” of the USSR were legitimate not one such Quisling would have been elected President. In fact, such persons would have been either arrested in the interests of national security or shunned by society. Remember, Communist Party members made up no more than 10% of the USSR, and it was they who for 74 years persecuted the remaining 90% of the population.

    Imagine it’s 1784 America. The Treaty of Paris (1783) was signed the previous year ending the revolutionary war with Britain. So who do the electorates of the newly independent 13 colonies elect for their respective governors? They elect persons who were Loyalists (American supporters of Great Britain) during the war for independence! Of course, in reality the persecution was so bad for Loyalists in post independence America that they had to flee the country en masse for Canada.

    Or try this one out: After the collapse of the South African Apartheid Regime in 1994, the majority black population reelect for their Presidents only persons who were National Party members before the 1994 elections!

    Now you also know why immediately after the “collapse” of the USSR the United States wasn’t given Russia’s strategic nuclear weapons, including delivery vehicles, for safe keeping! Imagine that, the freed Russian people not ensuring their freedom against a Communist counter-coup with the assistance of Chinese PLA ground and air forces backing up Soviet Special Forces and Airborne Guards. If the “collapse” of the USSR had been real, then a freed Russia, for national security reasons, would have ensured that its nuclear weaponry was secured by United States military elements. That no such actions were taken proves that (1) both American political parties were co-opted by Moscow & Allies; and (2) the United States Armed Forces were not co-opted, otherwise elements of America’s armed forces would have been deployed to Russia in order to pretend to safeguard Russia’s nuclear weapons.

    In addition, the KGB agent Quislings that controlled the Russian Orthodox Church before the “collapse” of the USSR are to this day still in control! They were never identified and thrown out of that institution after the “collapse” of the USSR! The same is true for the other 14 republics of the USSR, including East Bloc nations.

    For those unfamiliar with this subject, the “collapse” of the USSR in 1991 was a strategic ruse under the “Long-Range Policy” (LRP). What is the LRP, you ask? The LRP is the “new” strategy all Communist nations signed onto in 1960 to defeat the West with. The last major disinformation operation under the LRP was the “collapse” of the USSR in 1991. The next major disinformation operation under the LRP will be the fraudulent collapse of the Chinese Communist government. When that occurs, Taiwan will be stymied from not joining the mainland.

    If anyone is interested in a list of “victors” names of those 52 “elections” that have taken place in the republics of the “former” USSR, let me know. I’ll post it. The list also includes the Soviet era Communist Party status of the “victor”.

    Can a democracy last longer than 200 years?
    Alexander Fraser Tyler, Cycle Of Democracy (1770)

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over lousy fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

    The average of the world’s great civilizations before they decline has been 200 years. These nations have progressed in this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependency; from dependency back again to bondage.”

    They’re an extension of the process that put them on the court. Nothing more. They’re as political as the president who appointed them. Few people would consider them “independent” and nobody I’ve ever met would consider them unbiased. How is it that they can be an “Independent 3rd Branch of Government” when they are appointed by the first branch and confirmed by the second? And serve for life without any consequence for their decisions. Independence? Some would call it a license to steal.

    One of the only things that can save America is for Americans to outlaw party voting. We need to abolish the political parties, and therefore, donations to a ‘party’. We need to all re-register (its easy, I promise- even I did it) as “not affiliated with any party”. Only then with the money manipulators not be able to buy an entire Nation of people. They would be EASILY rooted out when one candidate showed up with buckets of money while all the other ones had just their personal incomes to run on…-Like Obama showed up with buckets of money.behind him to buy ads, etc. No. We need to level the playing field. If parties were outlawed, there would be laws against buying a presidency. WE cant even agree as a people upon ‘coke or pepsi’, so if the people’s attention was shifted to as many politicians as wanted the job, instead of just the “Republican or the Democrat” nominee, so we really ever only have two choices (because we ALL know that the third party never has a snowball’s chance- the buyers of politicians would never allow that) we might accidentally find ourselves researching our potential candidates across the net before we ‘sold our votes’.

    If you are referring to the Chinese Proverb:“If you want a definition of water, don’t ask a fish,” then you are well aware that you are also, by definition, the fish as well. The proverb implies that you are a product of your environment and your understanding of your environment is reflected in this manner. The proverb doesn’t imply whether one person’s interpretation is right or wrong; it simply explains why people think and act the way they do.

    Furthermore, using the same “fish who claims he is not wet,” logic, I can replace “Democrat,” “Christian,” “middle class,” in your statement with nearly any demographic or political identity I want, and the ends would still be the same.

    Lastly, I think you completely missed the point of my original statement. I agree that there are many things wrong with America. Many of which Mark Levin points out daily on his talk show and in his new book. However, my underlying point is simply that Levin, like the Banker, the CEO, the Union Boss, the Politician, they’re all looking to make personal gains off the backs of others. Bottom line is to question everything you read, hear, or watch, and you’ll greatly reduce your chances of following a false prophet (see those who voted for Obama in 2008 for further understanding).

    What are you speaking of? You throw out all these accusations and there is no evidence of anything you are asserting.

    You say the Republicans are uniform? Wow. Republicans have the cowardly go alongs to get alongs like Boehner and McCane juxtaposed with the constitutionalists such as Ted Cruise. They are many named ‘RINOs’ and seemingly few who hold reverence to our constitution. The whole of the Republican machine seems intent to march in lockstep with the likes of You to marginalize the Tea Party contingent.

    Conservatives believe the only people who should vote are those who have the right to the vote. For that humble expectation, we are counted as racists by damnable liars in this world; including yourself. The hate in this country is owned by the left. Since LBJ’s ‘great society’ programs and before, the leftists programs ostensibly designed to help minorities has destroyed them. The next objective is destroying the middle class and, with your help, the left will succeed.

    Using 35,000 these days would create a House of over 8,000 members. You think things don’t get done now? How about with 8,600 different voices and opinions? But, I checked the Constitution, and it says ‘not to exceed 30,000.’ Now that’s a hell of a lot of voices jabbering in Washington.

    Their defined power was to review the law against the constitution and constitutional powers that were delegated to the congress. Now they make their own law, under the “living breathing document” theory. Supreme court “review” was very rare until the last 50 years, when the Constitution became interpretive.

  • Baxter4315

    Wouldn’t really suggest there should be 9000 representatives. Just pointing out that the Constitution is not followed now because some of it would be unworkable the only good thing about 9000+ representatives would be that no new laws would ever be passed.

  • villiagecontrarian

    In Arizona an agreement is signed by federal level candidates like McCain that they will resign if recalled. But beware of this. If a STRONG candidate is not there to take his place then the seat could go to Democrats. And I remember the days before McCain when we had Democrat Dennis Deconcini, twice as hard to remove from office. He finally retired, that is how we got McCain. Recall McCain, but have your ducks in a row first or the cure may just be worse than the disease.

    Remember it is our Sons and daughters who are ‘driving’ those tanks. I am a veteran myself and I think you would find that the vast majority of our citizens in uniform would not fire on their own people. I would
    never have, not to the extent necessary to suppress the entire
    population.

    These young folks joined the various services because they love their country and their oath is to the Constitution, not to Mr. Obama, so
    have a little faith. If the whip comes down; and it well may, and soon, I don’t suspect we will be slaughtered in violation of the Constitution by our own children; I just don’t see it. Remember these folks are not drones, they are people, and they remember their oath, I did and I still do.

    This is the carefully planned, and expertly orchestrated destruction of the United States and Capitalism, and hence the American Dream. It has little to do with “Liberal vs Conservative”, and everything to do with “Globalization vs Individual Freedom”. This is why the destruction of individual rights has accelerated whether we have a Democrat, or a Republican in office! This is especially self evident in the division of the Republican party. As more conservative voters take a step back and support the Tea Party and its principles. They begin to see the traitors in their own party allied with the Democrats on destroying individual liberties, and furthering the destruction of Capitalism through the bastardization of Keynesian Economics. This is why both parties are on the illegal immigrant amnesty bandwagon, it is simply the next step to furthering the destruction of this country and Capitalism as we know it. Our elected officials simply do not care for us or our thinking. They have already been offered a seat at the table of Globalization, and they are ready to sell us out at a moments notice to preserve themselves.

    I tried to update my “talking points” and rebut in a civilized way, but the censor on this site keeps deleting what I say.

  • Anthony

    I believe you are right, to a degree. However, if the situation was put in a certain context, the US military would most definitely fire on its own citizens, if it was ordered as their duty to control the peace. The government will not simply just say hey shoot US. citizens because we ordered it. Instead they will create a crises, for example the collapse of the economy. Then use the military to keep the crises under control. So my point is the government will not just order it. They will create a crises environment where killing US.citizens will be condoned.

  • rjm2238

    One of his points was to suggest a change to the requirements which you quote, which incidentally are those for amending the Constitution, to those he stated for the various actions he proposed.
    The process to amend the Constitution is purposely cumbersome and difficult to achieve for obvious reasons and is outside the scope of this article only in that he is not proposing widespread amending of the Constitution; but the addition of these new ‘rules’, if you will.

    Love that equivocation, “…..not to the extent necessary to suppress the entire population.” What extent would you go to suppress some of the population? What part of the population would that be? The fact is, just like you admit, the vast majority would just follow orders.

    It’s all about equality.
    “Men and woman are equal. Therefore, women should serve in combat situations; never mind if they are a deadly liability to themselves and those on their side.

    It is not a problem that Obama has run up the national debt to the point that it threatens to collapse the entire economy, because George W. Bush also ran up the debt, even if by $trillions less.

    It doesn’t matter if over 21,000 lethal acts of Islamic terror have been committed since 9/11; someone once bombed an abortion clinic, so Christianity is just as bad.

    I once had it explained to me that it is morally acceptable to turn over innocent children to be raised by perverts because heterosexuals sometimes molest children too. That they are much less likely to do so is irrelevant under the doctrine of equivalence.

    I would say, we see more cases going to the Supreme Court, because people contest the laws more often. Cases are presented, which the Founding Fathers (and thus the Constitution) wouldn’t even dream about. It is not that the justices are being needlessly creative in making their own laws. I don’t believe they do. It’s more that they are being asked to adjudicate in cases that aren’t clear-cut. This is why such cases make it to the Supreme Court for starters.
    The balance of the Court depends on its composition, which depends on who nominates the justices. This is why it is so imperative that GOP must win the presidency next time round. But it’s been always like this.

    Re: Skeagles/Anthony:
    I can see you do not have a very high opinion of those in the military. Contrary to what you say, they can think for themselves, they can see through obvious ruses, they are not stupid drones and they have one overriding order, you are not allowed under any circumstances to carry out illegal orders. Therein lies the out as the method for determining illegality has never been defined so there is sufficient wiggle room to act the right way now and if good prevails over evil the rest will sort itself out. If it doesn’t then it just don’t matter does it?

    In any event I have faith in our people to do the right
    thing. There is nothing that could have been done when I was in the service that would have caused me machine a crowd of American citizens, and that my
    friend would have to happen thousands of time for what you postulate to come to pass. I just don’t see it.

    As for your equivocation my meaning was not to the extent to which one would shoot people; people are either shot or not, obviously, but as to what proportion of service members would carry out illegal orders or orders which stand a very good chance of being proved illegal after the fact. I assumed that much was obvious, in addition to those who simply will not machine gun masses of their own people.

    Lastly when I used the term vast majority it was in describing the vast majority who would not shoot American citizens, so I don’t know where you get just like I admit? It was the exact opposite of that, please reread more carefully.

    The problem is that we do not have unfettered capitalism, we have crony capitalism, where corporations have better tax terms with the government than private citizens, exemptions, shelters, sweetheart deals all designed to drive the economy from small businesses to large corporations where they are easily controlled by a fascist central government.

    “Remember it is our Sons and daughters who are ‘driving’ those tanks. ”

    Not necessarily. Most conservative dopes, whose IQs drop 50 points when you mention “military” eagerly say, to sound “tolerant”, that the illegals can gain citizenship through military service!

    “I am a veteran myself and I think you would find that the vast majority of our citizens in uniform would not fire on their own people. ”

    They’ve been conditioning them to do it since the 50′s – funny how the significance of troops standing AGAINST democracy in integrating schools seems to sail right over your heads in favor of focusing on what the liberal template response demands.

    Most recently you have Boston…..

    Further they aren’t giving orders to fire on you – you will be called a terrorist. In some ways I think most of you will deserve it since you allow that imbecilic rationalization suffice for killing foreigners for decades – how will it feel?

    And Israel is very much at the center of this. Just ask who has been shooting unarmed people and later claiming they were “terrorists” and the media reports it once but no one looks in to it. They have that mechanism down pat.

    They are looking at the US as occupied East. All you fools that thought the Palestinians were the bad guys are going to find out what its like.

    If you wish to educate someone quickly, shoot one of their family members. Works pretty well on apathy too!

    We have a lot of different folks out here in New Mexico, Hispanics, Whites etc. and goodly proportion of all would fight. I think the divisions would more likely fall among worker types and bums, Conservatives and Liberals and contributors and takers so on.

    First Dave, it seems to be you who is the dope. You didn’t have a military presence in Boston, what you had was militarized Police Forces; big difference, but one which you seem unable to grasp.

    Perhaps you could provide me with the number of dead citizens, killed by the Federalized National Guard, while integrating the schools. Given the right circumstances a governor can refuse to federalize his
    state Guard Units. Since you invoked the fifties I’ll say they could fight rather than switch because after all it will be a hell of party going on out there. And lastly as you seem to think, in your Liberal hate, that we deserve
    to be killed, I hope to see you out there, should be a fun time!

    I’d suggest you read a bit of real American history because what has changed has filled many volumes of books.
    I’d suggest starting with why the constitution had the 2/3 provision in it and then find something about why in a republic those allowed to vote were supposed to be only those who owned real property. If that last provision was still the case we would not be in the situation we currently find ourselves in.
    Where we are today was the downfall of Athens. Like communism, no democracy has ever survived for very long.

  • historyguy48

    Have you ever taken advanced statistical modeling, or even basic statistics 101?
    All you need to do is look at the first reported returns from all the “swing” states where voter ID was no longer required/allowed. Then compare those returns to those from past elections, including the 2008 election. That is your abnormality. Then look for the reason why/how so many precincts turned in over 100% returns for Dear Leader.
    After that look for the completely missing outrage expressed by the progressive Republicans. That isn’t an election it is a soft coup.
    Then look at what has been happening since slightly before and since said election. It is very obvious that the progressives who control both parties have combined forces and now control both this country and its ballot box. Ergo; a soft coup.
    Stop taking each and every story as a separate entity because all too often they are linked in some fashion. Look for those links to figure out the “why” behind what has been happening.
    Try this one; Most of the worlds largest hedge funds, including George Soros, are now massively shorting the dollar. Why, and what is that going to do to said dollar?
    Hint; it is what we did to Zimbabwe, Yugoslavia, Mexico, and Argentina, among others.

    I think the goal we’re looking for is a government that is completely free of corruption. “Less corrupt” is still corrupt. The only plausible reason to grade government corruption on a curve, is to fool ourselves into thinking we don’t need to hate our government. That only makes us sheep in the end.

  • Ted

    There has been civil war before, and it’s quite possible again. Think about the cause of the civil war for a moment. The country was polarized, and took to their guns because they felt they could not arrive at a peaceful solution. Look at today. Half of the country is voting for “leaders”, and the other half believe that the country is being destroyed by those “leaders”. Many people who know about the history of other countries can see the similarities of how their citizens lost their rights and became controlled by the government. I don’t believe true Americans will wait until they’re powerless to start the fight.

  • Why_So_Worried

    Ted, don’t make this a story of half and half… Just because the country looks 50% red and 50% blue on a map doesn’t mean “Half of the country is voting for “leaders”, and the other half believe that the country is being destroyed by those “leaders””

    Sure, a majority of Republicans (and Independents, for that matter) may not vote for Democrats, but they sure as heck don’t think the Democrats are “destroying” the country, and they sure as heck would not pick up arms against the government and their brothers, sisters, neighbors.

    Maybe you are talking about the future, not today… but it’s a far future when 50% of the country can stomach Fox News, let alone trade hateful, disrespectful emails about our elected leaders and talk about revolution or civil war. In fact, with immigration and simple birth demographics, it will never hit 50%.

    Also, you are completely right that there have been many tragic, horrible examples of people losing rights and becoming controlled by the government, but none of the countries where this has happened have the same history, people and traditions (and MIX of people and traditions) that we do–unless you can name one that I am missing!

    Mark Levin carries the spirit of the Founding Fathers. As such his efforts will be attacked by those wishing to see the Constitution eviscerated. And naysayers like Karl Rove who give up without a fight. Karl said recently we can’t fight ObamaCare until we have a Republican president in the White House. Just imagine if he was one of the leaders during WWII, it would have been a cake walk for the NAZIs. He further shot himself in the foot when he said Obama wants the Republicans to fight against ObamaCare because it is a trap like the birth certificate issue. Well Karl, the only reason the birth certificate issue was not a gigantic win for patriots is because when Obama presented a counterfeit document YOU and the entire ruling class when silent. Sheriff Joe Arpaio in a series of forensic videos available on YouTube showed conclusively that the birth certificate is as phony as a $3 bill. If this was a winning issue for Obama it was because YOU and the entire media are afraid to point out that the president is engaged in criminal document fraud, and a conspiracy to defraud America.

At the end of the day, I can’t tell: are you a comfy conservative, all happy with life, or are you an *a n g r y* one, all upset about the demographics stacked against you, the coming eight years of Hillary Clinton in the White House (oh, and Bill, too!), and confused about whether Obama is fascist, communist, socialist, Muslim, or as mentally challenged? Are you one of the morons who says the Muslim Brotherhood is getting what they deserve, or are you one of the morons who says Obama should step in, or are you one of the morons who says Obama’s indecision on Egypt makes us look weak, or are you one of the morons who says that it’s good that our enemies are killing each other? Regardless of which you are, I guess you had better start googling “how to hold your nose and talk to your fellow morons in time to prevent Hillary I and Hillary II”.

    This book is not only a breath of fresh air, but it will hopefully lead us back to our roots as a Federal Republic. One of the things that I have been screaming about for years is the 17th Amendment. It removed so much power from the States that the Senate is now filled with ancient, party drones.
    And term limits! Someone please tell me why brain-addled, old Reps. like John Dingell and John Conyers, et al. should be allowed to keep a seat warm while slowly turning into dust.
    To accomplish Mr. Levín’s goal will be a Herculean task, but very much needed one and well worth the effort it will demand.
    This book should be required reading for High School Honors Students and Poly Sci 101. Sadly, the “teaching” (read: propaganda) profession will be the ones who will be the loudest of the detractors because ya see, they are so much more intelligent than those of us who eschewed academia in favor of the private sector.

    Has this guy ever read the Federalist Papers that were made in support of the Constitution or the Articles of Confederation? The federal government was given more power because of the lack of an executive branch, lack of regulation of interstate commerce, and an ability to tax citizens. Not all of the founders were states rights oriented such as the Federalist Party that included Hamilton or Adams. Certain powers were given to the federal government so that the federal government would have protections against angry citizens “aka Shay’s Rebellion”. By adding the liberty amendments, Levin is indirectly destroying parts of the Constitution. For example, congress should not be involved with the Supreme court at all.

    If Romney was the right republican, he would have won.

    Looks like the MSM (NY Slimes, Washington Compost and CBS’ Dan Rather) did a hatchet job on Newt Gingrich.

    “The bottom line: Gingrich acted properly, violated
    no laws and was exonerated.”

    “The story was much different after Gingrich was
    exonerated. The Washington Post ran a brief story on page five. The Times ran an equally brief story on page 23. And the evening newscasts of CBS, NBC, and ABC — which together devoted hours of coverage to the question of Gingrich’s ethics — did not report the story at all.”

    the federal government has went way beyond the addition authority granted the federal government under the US Constitution compared to what it had under the Articles of Confederation.
    But it still gets down to juries within a state made up of people of the state having veto authority against federal action on a defendant even if the defendant is a state official.
    Here in TN juries within a county have veto authority against state, county and local government action against a defendant.
    James Madison pointed out in Federalist Paper 46 that states have other remedies against federal action, not only mis federal action but federal actions in the state that people in the state basically just don’t like from legislative counter action in the state, to civil disobedience of individuals in the state and interposition of officals in the state.
    He also suggested that the state militias would be far more numerous than the general government troops, so states could join together to fight an attack from the federal government.
    Of course for over 100 years the policy has been to weaken the state militias and unconstitutionally replacing them with the National Guard ( although the NG is a great idea its not the constitutional organized state militia) but today with the all volunteer military most would still refuse to obey certain orders to attack Americans plus large number of federal agents will stand down on many of them which is why on these commando swat raids done here on this water bottler in ARK. they brought in mostly agents from around the country-

    but without congress or the amendment to repeal the 17th overturning certain unconstitutional federal court rulings made in the 1960s and 1970s we will not get the real benefit of the state legislators picking the two US Senators from the state.
    Before counties, or townships or municipalities could and many states had equal representation in one branch of the state legislator like each state has equal representation in Congress through the US Senate.
    As is with just a simple repeal of the 17th the urban areas would still tend to control the US Senate because they would have the most representation in both the state house and state senate because the illegal court rulings required all representation below the federal level be based on equal or near equal population size districts.

    Congratulations Why_So_Worried, by admitting the all important fact that you are defective due to your deviant DR4D gene, you can move on to the next step in redemption. Redemption is not as positive as recovery but there is no known cure for the gene caused bias toward socialism.

    The next step in your redemption is to recognize your wicked urges to limit other people’s inherent rights. This has to be the most difficult effort that a liberal ever has to face. The best way to accomplish this feat is to ask a conservative to guide you when you exhibit the negative symptoms of liberalism, such as calling for the abuse of the individual rights inscribed in the Bill Of Rights.

    You may have to give your personal guide permission to use an electric cattle prod when the liberal urges become obvious. The recommended backup device, of course, would be the hand held taser.

    Undoubtedly, repeated high voltage shocks administered across the spine at the base of the skull, should drive the liberal thoughts right out of your mind.
    There is always the possibility that permanent damage might occur, but this is a small price to pay in becoming a good citizen.

    I know that you will agree that all of this is for your own good. As a liberal you certainly understand that your individual sacrifice in this matter would be necessary for the common good.

    Your skepticism about Big Brothers march toward a police state misses your own role in the growth of such skeptical activism.
    Not that there’s any point me telling you this, cognitive dissonance being what it is but you should learn to question everything before its too late.

    “The Big Brother disinformation industry, consisting of propagandists posing as journalists, indoctrinators posing as academics, and agitprop specialists posing as artists and entertainers, are some of the biggest problems this country faces.

    They perpetuate the hatred. They stoke the fires of racism. They taint juries, and distort the facts. They are the ones who create this red state vs. blue state, right versus left, and black versus white BS. They continue to pit us against each other – all in the name of ratings, of perpetuating the corrupt state, and fattening the bank accounts of the mega-corporations who own the whole charade.”

    “However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying
    afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” George Washington

    ROFL! There is a difference between saying that government can serve a positive purpose and saying that government is perfect. Which it isn’t.

    No government is perfect. No human being is perfect either. Boundaries are necessary, and there has to be at least some degree of consistency in defining those boundaries. Doing it your way, where everyone defines their own boundaries based on their own perception of what does and does not cause harm would generate more confusion, chaos, and dissension than we’ve been seeing under the Obama admin (which has been more than enough to wreak havoc in our society)

    Government can and does serve a positive purpose. Those who believe no government is a better alternative have either bought into an unrealistic illusion of what our society would become or are incredibly naive.

    (from my same comment at Scoop’s)

    I confess I am not interested in what the naysayers are bringing to
    this discussion. I’ve studied this subject for years, and I have heard nothing new from them so far. Nothing.

    If you have something new and original, then sure, I want to hear it. But
    the same old naysaying is completely uninteresting in light of what the
    Article Five process really was designed for.

    And the historic reality is: it WAS designed for this moment.

    The Founders had many fallen civilizations to study (real civilizations,
    not just tribal crap like the Afghanistan of today) when coming up with
    their plan. Nothing about technology and petrochemical or nuclear
    energy sources has brought anything new to the table when it comes to
    the basic concepts of democratic republicanism. All that technology and
    energy adds is to make certain aspects of the process more convenient
    and more instantaneous. They really knew what they were doing a mere
    Two-Hundered and Twenty-Six years ago. In terms of human history, that
    is not much time at all.

    Those of you who have read the books
    available to the Founders know that modern minds find them “difficult”
    to read. Not because of the language (although that is part of it).
    But because it demands a better educated mind than our schools produce
    today. The Founders were not nearly as weak-minded as your average
    modern-day member of Congress.

    So the Founders knew we would come to this crossroads. And crossroads is right. Some of us are going to take this new path. We ARE going to do it. We WILL get it done.

    So to the naysayers, I simply declare it is going to happen, and you’d best get on board to help make it happen right. We aren’t going to pass this one chance to avoid all-out Civil War.

    – This Article Five process is going to happen –

    I pledge my life, and everything I can bring to the table to make sure it succeeds.

    This is a movement that will not fall apart, because unlike the Tea Party
    and Conservativism in general, it has a solid, completely defined
    philosophical foundation based on the best of Constitutional scholarship
    (and I am not referring just to Levin here, but the entire body of
    thought from Locke to Levin and those who will come after). It
    represents a tightly-focused mission, and tactically, is a complete,
    definable, and achievable goal. (Conservativism is more of a
    broad, cultural ideal. The Liberty Amendments are more like a
    mathematical theorem in comparison.)

    The tea party movement is where it springs from, to be sure, but the tea party is more of a generalized concept, with many, many potential outcomes. This Article Five process is the entire, broad, Tea Party movement reduced to a
    stilleto-sharp speartip. This kind of focus, driven by our undying
    committment will be unstoppable.

    “Why, by
    God, I actually pity those poor sons-of-bitches we’re going up
    against. By God, I do”

    – General George S. Patton,
    Jr.

    Of course there are various competitive groups with lots of money and influence that wants both a central police state and they want a one world central government to eliminate in theory feet voting.
    Its not just one group, the six main competitive groups are the international Marxist, the bureaucratic EU/UN style fascist small roundtable group of multinational corporate fascist , the Chinese Communist Party, The Arab Lobby with a heavy competitive sub groups the Moslem Brotherhood,( the Iran shia another subgroup) and Russia.
    There are several other groups with less influence.
    Still neither will likely get their wish although in the seeking of the one ring they will make life much harder for the rest of us.
    If any of them do in theory gain a one world central government its not likely to last long, its bound to fail.
    More likely would be the world divided between a union of the international Marxist, the fascist ( corporate and technocrats) in theory controlling the EU, North America, Isreal Central and South America with maybe Japan and India
    Most of Asia split between China, Pakistan, Iran and Russia.
    Africa split between Pakistan,China, and South Africa.
    But those unions will fall apart in a short time also although they would last longer than a one world government.
    There are natural noble divisions in people not seeking world domination and many of those differences are healthy, associations , groups and parties are a natural noble part of political economics.
    Freedom of Association and representation of the individual associations in politics is part of a proper Anglo/American common law system.

    Capital is a fact of life.

    no its not the corporations that runs the planet currently or since the invention of the modern day central state.
    The fact is the political class of various central governments rule the planet.
    Of course constitutionally we here in the US do not have a central government, the states and the general ( US) government are co equal but I’m talking about the post constitutional mindset that the US has been governed by for at least 100 years but especially the past 80 years.
    Here in the US the corporations don’t rule, the ruling class is made up of 546 members and it takes less than 51% of that club to rule the US and the corporations the way the majority of that ruling class sees fit.
    Congress, the president, the VP and the Supreme Court.
    Actually with post constitutional modern day goverence theory, its got down to where it only 5 unelected lifetime dictators in the US ruling and 1 elected person
    5 of the 9 people dressed in black robes on the US Supreme Court plus they need a enforcer- the elected president and the 5 can determine for ” security needs” the president can either serve beyond his constitutional term of office or he can be over the election counting process.

    yes the founders did fear an overgrown military establishment but just based on the total defense cost we don’t have that.
    the fact is the DOD budget has not caused red ink since the late 1940s and by 1980 the debt should have been paid in full.
    Yes DOD is extremely wasteful, Donald Rumsfeld said back in 2001 before the radical Moslems attacked the US, that the DOD could not account for well over 1 trillion in spending.
    Yes DOD should be for defending the US not policing the world but as Pat Buchanan points out, it is in the interest of the defense of the US that the US to be on top on land, water, air and space.
    We need to be ready to fight the rest of the world to defend the US and fight to win.

    Most of our troops keep up, the false flag operation might work against a few Americans for a short period or against a operation to march on DC or the state capital or even a city hall of a major city but a super majority of our troops will be able to tell the difference.
    Actually we will not likely today be able to use the tactics of the WW 2 vets and the people of McMinn County TN. in the Battle of Athens,TN. 1946.
    the governor of Tennessee refused to send the Sheriffs request to call out the National Guard because the governor feared political retaliation by a veteran voting block and many others.
    Today even in a small town like Athens Tennessee Obama would likely send troops probably mostly foreign troops quickly.
    I don’t know about Athens these days but if they and McMinn County are like the county I live in not far from Knoxville voting is no longer done on paper ballots.
    If voting is done on computers in a given area, who has access to the inside of the computer is a important issue.

    Madson suggested violent defense as one tactic in federalist 46 but by no means is it the only tactic against internal bad federal action he suggested in 46.
    As the

    site points out, Congressman Larry McDonald pointed out the five boxes have a order of use or as Fredrick Douglas pointed to three boxes the ballot box, the jury box and the ammo box.
    if using the ballot box fails to defend life, liberty, property, you use the jury box and if they will not allow people to have a proper in the vicinage American Common Law jury trial and accept the juries veto authority against the government to favor the defendant then use of the defensive ammo box to defend your family, friends and community might be necessary.

  • Professor2

    My problem, as a libertarian sociologist, is that Mark seems to think this can be a Tea Party operation. This is dead wrong and I can prove it with a simple thought experiment: Imagine a world where the Tea Party takes over BOTH houses of Congress AND the Presidency and sends the Repubicks to the dustbin of history.

    In that wonderful world we would STILL not be able to pass the Liberty Amendments!!!!!

    WE NEED LIBERALS, LIBERTARIANS, AND CONSERVATIVES ALL WORKING TOGETHER. We can’t get ALL the liberals- we don’t want the Marxists! We DO want the right thinking liberals. State based Civil Rights organizations, pro medical marijuana groups, gay rights groups, and other liberals and libertarians MUST be on our side if we have any chance of winning this. We need 70-80% approval to get this done and we CAN do it- but not if this is characterized as a ‘tea bagging’ or ‘anti-abortion’ operation.

    Elect Tea Party candidates…but…for the Liberty Amendments we must go way, way past Reagan’s “big tent.”

    Also, we need a national organization and a DEDICATED WEB SITE with moderators and discussion boards with threads about each of the proposed amendments, and links to the daily news and to each State Liberty Amendment organization. We also need to read “Rules for Radicals.” This is the ONLY way we are going to win this one- polarize the opposition- pick it, polarize it, freeze it: ANYBODY who opposes the Liberty Amendments is Satan incarnate h-ll bent on destroying our nation. No middle road!

    All of this is wrong. Congress has absolute power to legislate the courts. There is nothing written that makes the Supreme Court the final law of the land. This is a power they grabbed in 1803.

    Quotes from the Federalist Papers and the Anti-Federalist debates are about 80% of this book so yes, I can assure you Mark has read them, very, very carefully. There are NO parts of the Constitution he is destroying with ANY of these proposals. The leftists with their ‘living constitution’ have already unbalanced the republic and the only way to restore it is through Article 5. We need to reduce this federal Leviathan that is consuming our society.

    It was a comment in passing. A field-rank officer, in casual conversation several years ago said “… unless there’s a revolution, of course.” He answered that he was speaking strictly in the hypothetical, of course, but his words have stuck with me. That anyone in the military could speak so sanguinely about any possibility of revolution made the concept less foreign, less impossible to me. The loss of life, the danger to our families, the ensuing spy culture during any revolt, the losses to the people if (and likely when) they fail still made the prospect of sweeping change impossible to contemplate.
    But now, with Levin’s words, the concept of Constitutional Revolution is fresh and budding. The possibility of removing the State from the plantation house is a glimmering hope.
    My only concerns are (1) convincing enough state legislatures to take part in such a Convention, and then to have the support and resolve to resist the bribes and threats of the forces of the State, and (2) that the people of each state would not be interested in change, or would be led (a la the Wisconsin protests) by bribes and demagoguery to resist changing the status quo.
    Anyone involved on every level will be maligned in every possible way, as we’ve seen the democrats do to republican candidates, Justices and non-left-leaning public servants and political officials. And the State has no qualms against punishing opponents and groups who challenge them.
    I would like to hear any more optimistic evaluation of Levin’s proposal.

    Except the Dems have no interest in overturning Heller v D.C. Here is what was in the Manchin/Toomey Gun bill the Senate filibustered “killing” it.

    1. A fifteen year jail term for anyone that starts a gun
    registry…expanded…already against the law to register a gun.
    2. All states with concealed carry weapon laws would honor the concealed weapons license from the other states.
    3. Licensed dealers are protected from being sued if they sell a weapon (after a background check) and it is used in a crime or to harm another. That protection would be expanded to the individual seller
    4. Background checks for gun show sales and internet sales would be required
    5.The bill also reduced the amount of time a seller must wait for a response from the background check system before proceeding with a weapon sale, from three business days to 48 hours. After four years, when improvements to the
    system are in place, the background check would be required to clear in 24 hours.
    6. Expansion of interstate sales. In some cases, the amendment loosened restrictions on guns. It would have authorized interstate sales through licensed dealers –currently limited to rifles and shotguns — to include handguns, and eased other restrictions on sales across state lines. For example, active military members would be allowed to buy firearms in their home states, not just where they’re stationed.
    7. Under current law, transfers between family, friends and neighbors do not require background checks. You can give or sell a gun to your brother, your neighbor, your co-worker without a background check.You can post a gun for
    sale on the cork bulletin board at your church or your job
    without a background check. That did not change.
    8. It called for the creation of a commission to study the causes of violence, including mental health, guns,
    school safety and portrayals of violence in the media.
    Yet, Republicans would not pass this gun advocates dream in exchange for background checks on the internet and at gun shows.

    Yet the Constitution expressly denies citizens of the U.S. that right…and should.

    Article I Section. 8. clause 15: (Congress shall have the power)To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;
    It doesn’t matter what opinions/beliefs our forefathers may have expressed. They were opinions. What matters is the Constitution each eventually agreed to. Insurrection is against the Constitution. There were powers delegated to the ordinary citizen, voting, the right to petition and to peaceably assemble to air our grievances. To suggest…just because you do not like the direction the country is going…that taking up arms against it is the solution is ludicrous. I witness this (almost) exclusively on conservative blog sites. What is frightening…how easily the corporate world/so-called Libertarians propagandized that our President is not one of us, ready to declare martial law and throw us in FEMA camps and he barely can get Congress to act on any thing.

Since 2001, more of the military industrial complex has been awarded to private corporations without a bid. Now, with their interest assured, they are asking for the funds to “protect” our borders. It just boggles my mind, the immigration bill calls for a 700 mile fence and the use of drones before any legislation to address illegal immigration.

  • TimelyRenewed

    Of the excellent amendments proposed by Mark, the first should be to allow direct amendment of the Constitution by the States without having to go through the archaic and uncertain mechanism of a convention. A constitutional convention remains highly unlikely, both because of Establishment opposition and the procedural uncertainties that have bedeviled the idea ever since Madison warned about them at the 1787 Convention. Such an amendment could actually be enacted under the current Article V because of the left’s desire to pass an amendment against the Citizens United decision. While Mark’s proposal is unlikely to garner such support, the version at http://www.amendmentamendment.com could.

    Amendment remains the only peaceful way to restore the original Constitution. Once amendment power is back in the hands of the States, grassroots efforts on the state level can gradually restore our original Republic through Mark’s other proposals and the ones found at http://www.timelyrenewed.com/?page_id=2.

  • Kyle Kepley

    Don’t blame me, I voted for Romney (not my choice in the primary though) and tried to make the same argument you just did to the purists, most of them being Libertarians who were just miffed that Ron Paul didn’t win the primary. However, I agree with them that there is little difference between the policies enacted by both parties, and that is because of spineless moderates who are too afraid of the media, acedemia, Hollywood and all the other cultural influences the liberals have built up over the last sixty plus years. As the opposition party, the Republicans engage in very little oposition and what little they do is mostly theatrics that will go nowhere— such as voting to repeal Obamacare knowing full well it is DOA in the Senate. Mark Levin is not a zealot, nor is anyone else who voices similar opinions. He is one of the few who actually GET the big picture and can articulate the problem from both a historical and legal perspective without concern for who it offends. If you are going to pick candidates based on who the mainstream media supports, then you are letting the liberal media pick your candidates for you– which is exactly how we got stuck with that rudderless RINO McCain in 2008.

    I’m with you. Eric Shawn at Fox News had lots of evidence of voter fraud. Dems also worked very hard for years to get out the vote and to get it in their favor in a secret place called the Cave, using behavioral psychologists to talk to potential voters. They used up to date scientific principles of human behavior to get people to vote for hobama. They really wanted to win. We think all you have to do is cast your vote then go to sleep, or go get a slice of pizza or something. It’s takes much more than voting once to win something so important–the right to live as you want. The group wins that wants to win the most. The group wins that won’t tolerate not winning. Dr. Mike Murdock says, anything you can tolerate you can’t change. He also says you have to hate present conditions before you’ll change it. The thought of loss will make you change things to.

Romney lost from suing people off the ballot and kicking a third of his party out the door instead of spending the money from his corporate pets in the right states, like the Democrat corporate pets did. Obama’s machine didn’t lose sight of the fact that State electors choose the President and not The People.

    Sorry, but I can’t get enthusiastic about folks who would do more damage to the constitution than good. Levin’s proposals are full of false avenues – better to stick with the original plan than to veer off on Levin’s tangents. Wolf acting like a sheep. IMHO.

    Mark Levin is learned Constitutional champion and a stalwart of the proper workings of our beloved constitutional republic. Read his newest book The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American republic and learn how the citizen along with state legislatures can flex their political muscle and take back our dear republic from the lawless masterminds!

    He nows admits his vote was mistake.

    Hopefully, demographic shattering and economic erosion will create a state of chaos. Need total rebuild.

  • Joseph Guilbert

    Something needs to be done to restore balance to government and restrict the courts. Thank you Mr Levine.

    Mark, I will support you and the Article V Convention so long as you can guarantee your proposals will be the only amendments on the floor for discussion.

  • FedUp

    I somewhat agree with you but only in the fact that Levin’s proposal has no guarantee that his amendments will be the only ones discussed. If not then I would rather stay the course than allow the constitution to undergo this form of bastardization.

    I get all the fail safes in places to thwart a run away convention but I have no confidence in the American people to apply themselves to the process without being swayed by our progressive media who will pull out all the stops to further their agenda. And the public will buy it hook, line and sinker because they are to complacent to care if it takes any effort whatsoever.

    Mark Levin is a two-faced, egotistical, hypocrite, and a fraud in sheep’s clothing. His slander of Ron Paul, his supporters, Mike Church, Judge Napolitano, Walter Williams, his threats to Rand Paul, and any Constitutionalist or libertarian who takes issue with his short sighted ideas is shameful and disgraceful.

    As a former long-time fan of his, please take my word for what it’s worth. Beware “The Hate One.” There is nothing wrong with nullification.

    How many of you would even know who people like Tom Woods were had it not been for Levin’s mindless ad-hominem on-air attacks on the guy?

    For the record, this Article V Con-con push is not Levin’s idea. It was first devised in its present form by the Goldwater Institute’s Nick Dranias years ago. The plan was never meant to rival nullification efforts, as Mark Levin has mutated it to be.
