Mark Levin's "Liberty Amendments" | Human Events

The bestselling book on Amazon currently is Liberty Amendments which details what needs to be done to reverse the current course of government by special interests.
Do you think there is a coming national debate concerning reversal of progressive policies and to return the country to the principals outlined and intended by the forefathers and the Constitution?

Progressive is regressive? Special interests bribe both the right and the left. If Levin says otherwise he's a lier. Does he imply that special interest that bribe conservatives to impose legislation that may conserve something that should be changed---but that is ok?

After wading through the normal right-wing BS about vactions and such and finally seeing some of what he wants to change the answer is NO, we will no,t nor will the government, be changing or even debating the ideas that he proposes, some are very drastic and would change the way our Republic works and that ain't gonna happen.

Uh, no, that's not the point.

I haven't read the book but I have listened to an hour interview with him and his proposals are all rooted in the Federalist Papers and other historical writings by the founders. And I think that the way our Republic works should be changed because it does not currently work efficiently.

In other words ...

Levin hates the US Constitution so much, that he wants to alter it radically so that it conforms to his extremist right-wing ultra-conservative political ideology.

It's not gonna happen.

Not. Gonna. Happen.

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

Amending the constitution is a bad thing?

Does that mean that you would support repealing some amendments because they were only passed due to "hatred of the constitution"?

Bye, bye 19th Amendment? 14th Amendment? The 13th?

No, amending the Constitution is not a bad thing. It required amendments to be relevent to advances in human society, such as abolishing slavery and giving women the right to vote and hold public office.

Levin is an extreme ideologue and he would love the Constitution to bend to his political philosophy.

Anyway, it's just a masturbati0n fantasy on his part. It won't happen.

Good to hear it.

You should then agree that wishing to amend the constitution does not = hating it.
