Skip to comments.Is Mark Levin, talk show host, a RINO in drag supporting Herman Cain?
Posted on 11/05/2011 2:27:33 PM PDT by JOHN W K
What I find very alarming is our ``conservative`` radio talk show hosts are constantly referring to Herman Cain as a ``conservative``, as if there is an intentional motive by these hosts to convince listeners that Herman Cain is a ``conservative``, when in fact Herman`s 9-9-9 plan is comparable to government enforced central planning on a federal level. And let us not forget how that central planning thing worked out for the ``Union of Soviet Socialist Republics``!
Why would Mark Levin and other “conservative” talk show hosts constantly call Herman Cain a “conservative” when the evidence of Herman’s political “conservatism” is his 9-9-9 proposal and includes “opportunity zones” which is a proposal for federal “central planning”, big government picking winners and losers; would be an outright assault upon our free market system; is a proposal which violates our founder’s intentions forbidding preferential regulations of commerce to be granted by Congress to any state; blatantly proposes unequal tax law; and obviously ignores that part of our Constitution which requires direct taxes to be apportioned and indirect taxes to be uniform throughout the United States?
Why does Mark Levin call Herman Cain a “conservative” when Herman Cain proposes a further trashing of our Constitution; would enlarge our federal government’s central planning ambitions and trash our free market system; and would have big government picking winners and losers just as Obama‘s administration has done with the Solyndra swindle and plundering of our federal treasury?
Tell us Mark Levin, what part of Federalist No. 45 do you not understand which summarizes our federal government’s constitutionally limited job as follows?
“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected.
The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.
Tell us Mark Levin, what part of the Tenth Amendment which was specifically adopted to give force and effect to Federalist No. 45 and guarantee “federalism“, our Constitution’s plan, do you not understand, when you dare to call Herman Cain a “conservative“?
Read my lips Herman Cain. No additional national sales tax on top of the socialist tax calculated from incomes which you support.
Because Mark Levin knows more about the real RINO candidate than you......
Mark is not a RINO....in drag or otherwise.
Is this a vanity or an Opus?
John, the only “RINO in Drag” around here is you. Spare us you hysterically ignorant Romneybot smear jobs.
More like somebody just went off their meds.
You must NEVER listen to the great one.
1. He has problems with Cain’s 9-9-9 plan and has said so often on the show.
2. He has said he has not picked any one yet. He has defended
Cain, not necessarily because he supports Cain, but the hatchet job that was done on Cain.
My suggestion is for you to listen to Levin, before u start putting words in his mouth.
I seriously doubt anyone could write books like Men in Black and Liberty and Tyranny and be a RINO. Mark has been a staunch conservative and has defended those values for many, many years. He tends to give anyone with a conservative message a chance until he determines otherwise. I think it’s a good policy. Now, Bill Bennett, on the other hand....
I have a sponge filled with what was left of the last guy that challenged Mark Levine on Constitutional issues.
Both Levin and Cain strike me as model conservatives. That’s not to say I can’t find areas of difference between my ideals and theirs but they are true conservatives. Neither could fairly be called a RINO unless there is an agenda to be served by someone who calls them that.
Why don’t you tell us who you support Ace?
Welcome to Free Republic.
Actually listening to what was really said is really too much like work and it would require JOHN W K to be in the boring real world instead of his fascinating (to him) fantasy world. He is a bomb thrower nothing more.
Mark Levin a Rino????!!! Where does this guy come from? He has forgot more about the Constitution than I ever knew. Herman Cain is pure conservative.
Well to me it’s not very conservative to propose giving the Feds a national tax, higher than many state taxes now. Sorry I just can’t quite bring myself to approve of that.
Having a bad day, eh?
The 999 plan is not perfect, NO TAX STRUCTURE IS> It is simply a means to an ends. A way to bring much needed tax reform to the forefront.
I would assume that a new tax structure would take a serious amount of trouble to get passed, but once specific legislation works it's way through the system a much flatter and fairer system would ensue.
As for empowerment zones, the are a type of planning that incentives businesses back into the areas that they abandoned for the exurbs blighting areas that are now in much need of revitalization. A simple tax system that would remake Detroit, Toledo, Philidxelphia, and almost every old industrial inner city in the country is well worth a try. It would increase business opportunity and do so at a minimal cost. They are a fantastic idea that proves the most basic conservative points. A low tax system breeds innovation and increased business and personal prosperity for everyone.
Notice how these trolls post an opinion, then never hang around to defend them. They post and leave. How cowardly.
Whether he agrees with Cain or not on this or that issue did not matter. This kind of character assassination from the "Macaca" Washington Post spawned Politico cannot be allowed to prevail.
This was a hill worth dying on, so to speak.
This kind of "journalism" has to be stopped now.
That said, I question the constitutionality of a national sales tax. I don't believe that the federal government has the authority to tax intrastate transactions. The federal government is already constitutionally barred from taxing exports between states.
Commerce within a state is the state's business.
I could be wrong, but Levin has always struck me as the most straight-arrow, down-the-line conservative of all the radio talkers. Others have varying quirks, from being too RINO, too libertarian, too libertine, too GOP-Party machine owned, too strictly-reactionary, too beltway, etc.
Levin is ‘just right,’ as Goldilocks might say.
I am always amused by trolls here who post an opinion and then leave the site, instead of defending their opinion.
It’s one thing to post an article from a credible news site and leave, but to post an opinion and then walk away, tells me he’s a coward and unwilling to defend his opinion. Hit and runs is what I call these trolls.
Sounds like an agenda to me.
Mark Levin(aka:F.Lee Levin)is a GENUINE CONSERVATIVE!!!!!!!
If Mark Levin is not a conservative then no one is. He’s been fighting the fight while we type.
You aren’t fit to carry Mark Levin’s jock strap. What utter tripe. Who’s your horse, Ricky La Raza?
Mitt called - he said it's time for you to draw his evening bath.
You owe me for the 1 minute of time I spent reading that drivel. Yes, 1 minute, because it wasn’t worth reading past the first paragraph.
That’ll be $282,349. Small bills only.
Is that you Tokyo Rove?
You have never listened to Mark Levin, had you EVER listened to him you would never have written this post, because you would have known it would make you look like a blithering idiot.
I am sure the mods would pull your own post if you asked them nicely to avoid any further embarrassment.
For discussion, and not to be argumentative, but isn’t the fed gas tax, communication tax, etc all very similar to a national sales tax? I am not a FAIR tax guy nor a fan of the third 9 in Cain’s plan, but I am open to the ideas. Certainly his overall approach is a vast improvement on our current system wrought with class warfare and crony corruption.
Looking for discussion only, and anxious to hear your thoughts.
Mark Levin a RINO? ROTFLMAO
I'd say Cain was not as Conservative as I am because he is not opposed to the 16th amendment. But that's just me.
Mark Levin is a rhino zot ping.
You are right.
Do you often agree with hit and run trolls, Perry harpie?
“Checked back on his old posts, seems to have popped back in recently just to put the repeated bad-mouth on Cain.
Sounds like an agenda to me.”
He’s been posting hysterically all over the internet for years against the Fair Tax.
Must be an IRS employee, tax preparer, corrupt politician, corrupt lobbyist...
There are a lot of people who have a lot to lose from changing the status quo :)
Mark has not endorsed a candidate but he has consistently made the case that any of our candidates would be better than Obama; including Romney.
He has steadfastly defended Cain regarding the smear job perpetrated by Politico while saying that he is not endorsing him as a candidate.
What’s your problem?
This is satire, right?
Mark Levin a RINO? LMAO!!!!!! You MUST be kidding.
Aren’t you a sad case, bless your heart.
The thought of Mark in drag is kind of amusing though. Maybe in some elegant evening wear. LOL
The difference is that these are nationally consumed commodities that are produced in regional manufacturing sites. For example, refineries are scattered across the country (and the world) creating jobs in those localities, but the product is consumed country-wide (or world-wide).
Small businesses provides goods and services like local restaurants, dry cleaners, tailors, grocery stores, plumbers, electricians, painters, landscapers, repairmen, etc.
There is no reason for the federal government to tax the transactions of these local businesses.
We know what those words mean coming from a Perrybot. We in the north are more plain spoken. I'd give you the Ohio translation, but I'd get the zot.
