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.
One of the most powerful political books of our time.
This is a scholarly plea for the American people to assert themselves in the only way that the framers of the Constitution left for us when the Federal government has expanded it’s power beyond the limits of their Constitutional authority. This State-driven bypass of the corrupt, abusive Federal government is THE peaceful way that the framers left for the people to correct the over-reach of Federal power when all three branches of government have set themselves above the Constitution and the ruling class, of both parties, have fashioned a perpetual hold on unquestioned power. Mark has reminded us that there is a path provided for us to follow that is non-violent, unable to be rushed, unable to be taken over by extremists or the Federal government, and will still require the same protection of ratification by ¾ of the States. This is a decades-long path that will pull America into a profound discussion about the nature of our fragile republic. The framers gave us a great gift. Mark just reminded us that it’s here for us in our time of need.
A must read!
Mark Levin is a brilliant and insightful author and a true American patriot. Our country is facing some of the darkest days in its history and Levin not only defines and clarifies the issues at hand, but offers solid and workable solutions to the problems. I highly recommend The Liberty Amendments, as well as his other books, to anyone who loves and appreciates the freedoms we enjoy in this great nation.
Another angry rant
Prepare to be a little poorer and a lot stupider. Greetings from the bubble where this spiritually impoverished curmudgeon assigns convenient blame and wraps it in a flag that surely comes closer to the Confederate States of America than that of the USA. How do you assign negative stars?
