The Liberty Amendments: Restoring The American Republic by Mark Levin
“It was by the sober sense of our citizens that we were safely and steadily conducted from monarchy to republicanism, and it is by the same agency alone we can be kept from falling back.” Thomas Jefferson
So ends Chapter Ten of The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic by Constitutional scholar, attorney and popular conservative talk-radio host, Mark Levin. The quote by Jefferson is used, as are many others, to call to us for the need to be active and resolute in our handling of the precious and fragile rarity of liberty during this most distressing point in American history.
Levin’s book explores and emphasizes the thought processes of those who lent their thoughts to the founding of the nation, and zeroes in on the part in Article V of the Constitution that reinforces the design of the framers; that the people of the States shall have the power to amend the Constitution in case those in Washington D.C. refuse to follow it.
We have the power, each to his own, to pinch and ultimately clamp the Federal Leviathan which has been so egregiously foisted upon us through the deliberate, systemic and evil march of Statists in both major parties in the United States political system. Levin has outlined the process, and gone a step further in offering eleven amendments to restore Constitutional governance.
In laying the case for the amendment process, Levin points to the current President’s “impressive aptitude for imperial rule,” and the “gluttonous appetite for programmatic schemes,” of the out-of-control Federal government. He is convinced that those who currently hold the reins of power in Washington D.C. will not reform that which they feed off of, even though they have all taken an oath to preserve the Constitution, and presses the case for self-government, and a citizen-activist role as well as a citizen-legislative role.
