so if two or more people talk about the same ideas, or solutions they are not legitimate? that makes less then no sense.

Really so when the leftist talk and put forth their ideas that are honest and caring people, but anyone on the right is doing it just for the money?

Liberalism
“childlike emotionalism applied to adult issues"

OMG, I am saying to stop listening to these people and be informed on your own. And I don't think that definition of liberalism is in the dictionary.

Not. Gonna. Happen.

He'll sell some books and make a few bucks ... that's the bottom line.





Actually he wants us to conform to the intent of the Constitution that we have traveled far from, not "radically alter" it.


Obama is the "fundamental" changer if you recall as an example.
Telling the People they will be taxed for not buying something is radical.

I believe many did not let that word, "fundamental", sink in to reflect upon it's true meaning.

Too much of this has already transpired well before the current Administration to our detriment.

Did you read the link?

Sounds like you are unfamiliar with Levin.

You or Levin dont have to re-write the constitution when what seek is already allowed. You all just dont want to go the route allowed and come up with some freaking Right Wing talking points fantasy.

Go pass your "liberty amendments" if you and he know so much; see how far you get.

Two quotes from the review (the bold is mine)...

Quote:
Levin aims to change the rules of the game… or, more properly, reset them, to restore the brilliant system put in place by America’s Founders.
Quote:
Another Liberty Amendment likewise reins in the judicial branch, setting term limits for Supreme Court justices, and giving Congress the power to override Supreme Court opinions with a three-fifths vote, without risk of presidential veto. Three-fifths of the state legislatures can also join forces to knock down a Court decision.
Anyone find these quotes contradictory?

What is the aim of the conservative? ...to restore the Constitution to its original version (whatever or WHENEVER that may be) or to "restore" the constitution to what it OUGHT to be?

Liberalism isn't the only ideology plagued with visions of utopia dancing in its head.

For a guy who says he loves the constitution I find it strange that he has pure hatred for the Pauls and their supporters. He is also is a big supporter of interventionist foreign policy and it is a joke he does not address that issue.
I do support all of his amendments and some of them are well talked about already such as term limits. So thus I am not impressed and considering the source who too me is just another loud mouth {R}.
I would not waste my hard earned money on a pipe dream, does Levin actually think that he would get any of these amendments to become law? As you know after the states pass a amendment it goes to congress and that is where it will die. Does anybody think our leaders will cut their own throats and give up power?
The U S will continue down the same path it is way too late to turn back the clock.

When you attack the author instead of the information he presents, your argument is deemed false as being a logical fallacy.
