The Liberty Amendments
Mark R. Levin has made the case, in numerous bestselling books that the principles undergirding our society and governmental system are unraveling. In The Liberty Amendments, he turns to the founding fathers and the constitution itself for guidance in restoring the American republic.
The delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention and the delegates to each state’s ratification convention foresaw a time when the Federal government might breach the Constitution’s limits and begin oppressing the people. Agencies such as the IRS and EPA and programs such as Obamacare demonstrate that the Framers’ fear was prescient. Therefore, the Framers provided two methods for amending the Constitution. The second was intended for our current circumstances—empowering the states to bypass Congress and call a convention for the purpose of amending the Constitution. Levin argues that we, the people, can avoid a perilous outcome by seeking recourse, using the method called for in the Constitution itself.
The Framers adopted ten constitutional amendments, called the Bill of Rights, that would preserve individual rights and state authority. Levin lays forth eleven specific prescriptions for restoring our founding principles, ones that are consistent with the Framers’ design. His proposals—such as term limits for members of Congress and Supreme Court justices and limits on federal taxing and spending—are pure common sense, ideas shared by many. They draw on the wisdom of the Founding Fathers—including James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and numerous lesser-known but crucially important men—in their content and in the method for applying them to the current state of the nation.
Now is the time for the American people to take the first step toward reclaiming what belongs to them. The task is daunting, but it is imperative if we are to be truly free.
The Liberty Ammendments
While Mark is a brilliant man and writer, he needs to write so that a much larger group of people can understand what he is saying.
Bring it down to the common language so most people will understand these words.
Also, he wasted an opportunity to get people involved in gathering signatures or whatever is needed to get the ball rolling. Where do we go to help?
Mark Levin is Brilliant.
I just hope there are potential leaders who are as strong as Mr Levin is dogmatic about reconstructing the Constitutional Republic that we all love. On his nationally syndicated radio show, Mr Levin mixes an appropriate level of outrage with thoughtful insight, rational thought and a sometimes biting wit. This man gets me absolutely fired up about our Constitution! In honor of Levin, I just gave my friend the 20 second liberal clock. "Go."
Excellent! Mr. Levin is a breath of fresh air.
This book will go down in history as the warning shot across the bow of America's sinking ship. If we do not wake up and take control of our lives, our liberties, and our government then we will lose them all forever. Buy it, read it, understand it, and do something about it!
