Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mark Levin is a radio host and a Constitutional scholar. Invoking Article V of the Constitution, which sets out methods for amendments, Levin has proposed a number of changes to term limits, taxation, restoring states' power and more.

Currrently, states' powers have been almost completely overruled by Federal laws and mandates, debt is out of control, stretching past two generations of American's ability to pay it off. Government spending is a significant proportion of GDP and the GDP itself is stagnating; is this caused by the heavy burden of non-productive government spending? Government regulation has even gone so far as to dictate what kind of light bulb can be manufactured and sold and choices in healthcare may soon be dictated by unelected bureaucrats. For those who think that this kind of centralized power is dangerous and even tyrannical, Levin's amendments seek to address the power that the Federal government has arrogated unto itself, a power that never was the original intent of the Founding Fathers and which reduces individual liberty significantly.

Levin's amendments include:

1. Term limits, including for justices.
2. Repealing Amendment 17 and returning the election of senators to state legislatures
3. A congressional supermajority to override Supreme Court decisions (overruling what could be a stacked court)
4. Spending limit based on GDP
5. Taxation capped at 15%
6. Limiting the commerce clause, and strengthening private property rights
7. Power of states to override a federal statute by a three-fifths vote.

Format: Hardcover
Mark Levin is an outstanding scholar and intellectual force multiplier for liberty. Having dedicated his life to defeating the Hobbesian leviathan that resides within our national government (and plenty of state governments mind you), I personally admire his steadfast defense of liberty and the constitution. Many of my libertarian friends might be skeptical of his intellectual prowess, merely writing him off as another "neocon." This is an incorrect, and intellectually lazy, assumption which flippantly discounts Levin's commitment to liberty. So, for any libertarians out there that are not sure whether Levin is a champion of liberty and a true intellectual, I encourage you to read Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America. We are all on the same side here. The Liberty Amendments provides hope, direction, and an attainable goal for all lovers of liberty, conservative and libertarian alike. What is that goal? To use the second method found within Article V for amending the Constitution through the States. I did not realize that this could be. I thought that the only way for a Constitutional amendment to become part of the Constitution is for them to be introduced in the legislature which must support it with a 2/3 vote and then ratified by 3/4 of the states. Not so, explains Levin. This is what statists fear most: the states uniting against the national government to amend the Constitution and restore limited government and begin an exodus from the post-Constitutional era into the Constitutional era. This should be a rally point for conservatives and libertarians who can appreciate Levin's original premise and intellect that produced this first-rate scholarship and provides fuel for the torch of liberty.

~WARNING: This is Not Your Bubbe's Meatball Recipe!

Our Republic is broken. Some of the most hostile and antagonistic adversaries to liberty reside within our own government, including those apostate politicians we trusted to rightly represent us. We have a malevolent body of reckless politicians whom pass 3000-page omnibus legislation they cannot have read. Washington statists have no incentive to read their own legislative bills because they are wont to exempt themselves from their laws. Example: Affordable Healthcare Act - The U.S. Congress is exempt from Obamacare! In fact, Barack Obama is himself exempt from Obamacare! Americans are capriciously mandated to comply with onerous, life-changing laws, by the Ruling Class statists in Congress, who contrive, (in bad faith) to actually exempt themselves from the very laws they author as compulsory for, "We the Little People".
SEE: Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto

Further, these arrogant statists cherry-pick exemptions from their own lawmaking by doling out exemptions from their legal hardships as Party favors to their union cronies. Then to their largest contributors. Then to their friends and office staff. We have become a broken system with two sets of laws. Once our elected representatives are safely embedded on the other side of the Potomac, they then join notorious political coalitions, as they plot in secret, to upend their constituents' political, and moral principles, as well as forsake the Constitution they swore an oath to uphold.
