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.
These ideas will be opposed by those who favor central planning and a very powerful federal government, who believe that a few should decide the fate of many, who like the current system and the way it's headed. It will also be ignored by those who think that there is too much inertia to oppose the direction we're headed. It's true there are powerful forces at work fundamentally transforming the nation, but it's also true that there is a plurality of opinion throughout the US. For those who wonder how we've gotten to where we are presently, and how we might restore personal liberty and more localized government, where we have MORE of a say, not less, this is a very important book and worth reading and discussing.
1) Republicans who cheered for Bush when he did the stimulus package then booed Obama for doing the same
2) Democrats who hated Bush for the Patriot Act yet cheered Obama for defending it.
3) People who gives crappy reviews to books they never read
My point is that most people I know identify with a party, not an ideology. These people believe Bush could do no wrong (On the Republicans side) and believe Obama is a Jesus figure (on the Democrats side) We have lost these people.... they are the gone.
If you are about FREEDOM and LIBERTY for ALL AMERICANS. This is a good read. It is also a challenging read. It is all laid out in a easy format but the challenge is in the thought behind it. In deciding if what we have now is really working and if this could really help. This book made me want to start believing in the power of the people around me, the the state I live, and in the country I love. This is a call to a peaceful revolution to reclaim what is ours as Americans.
My only regret is that the lost people that need to read it the most will never turn the page and vote us party line into oblivion.
One last note. I have the kindle version and unlike some kindle books this one has perfect formatting.
*Random Edit* I just did a quick count of 1 star reviews... only one amazon verified purchase... wow... does that tell you something? Go ahead and take a look at the five star reviews... notice something?
I would also add another amendment to clear up any ambiguity regarding citizenship.
A Person born in the United States of a parent of a citizen of the United States, or of lawful permanent legal resident of the United States, at the time of birth, shall be deemed a citizen of the United States by birth.
