Is there hope for America?? Maybe so.
The great one!
Great! This thing is taking off.
I got mine in the mail today. Can’t wait to get started. Go Great One!!!
And I’m sure the sales of his book wasn’t hurt by Rush’s mention on his show ... LOL!
I bought the audio and the book version. I have a Nook but I don’t use it to read... yet.
thanks. just put myself in the wait queue at my local library.
It’s gonna kill the NYT to have add this to their best seller list.
Any numbers? Is the American public finally getting the picture? If Mark is right and enough of us break down the walls of RINOism, can his approach stop the ruination of America by the liberal elite, the media lapdogs and the commies in government.......May God give us strength!!!!
My book arrives Thurs. Looking forward to it.
just ordered my copy with George Washington: the crossing
I watched the Hannity special the other night and what stood out for me was not only what was said, but it was the exchange of ideas and rational, thought provoking debate.
We all should take a lesson from it.....
Ahem, that is geared to an earlier thread from today.
HOORAY Mark! GRRRRREAT news!
I would love to see a modern leading liberal mind
publish his or her vision for completing a liberal vision for america and the american public vote on which they support.
God bless Rush! God bless Hannity! And God BLESS Mark Levin.
This is exciting! And it goes beyond Mark Levin’s suggested anemdnets. It truly empowers We the People to rise above the Ruling Class.
Like Pandora’s Box, there’s no stopping it short of genocide. Even if all of our technology were suddenly shut down via EMP — too late for the Ruling Class.
With the ‘Han Man’ on board, with Rush on board, Levin’s concept has powerful backing. Wow!
If I were to buy a book, this would be IT.
And I think this concept will take off faster than Levin has envisioned.
I am really excited, but we must bear in mind the potential power play that the Left will attempt. Fuzzy memory alert:
Didn’t Elena [or Elana?] Kagan believe that no constitutional amendment can/should be passed without Supreme Sandwich approval?
If the Supreme Sandwich ‘court’ were to kangaroo itself into convention meddling, that offers a fig leaf for ruling class republicans [the beltway goons] to claim that once the Supremes rule, their decrees must be upheld.
It would be better to prevent such rubbish than to react post-coup.
The Supreme ‘court’ has no such power unless the republicans pretend that they do.
I caught this little bit:
“I was originally skeptical of amending the Constitution by the state convention process. I fretted it could turn into a runaway caucus. As an ardent defender of the Constitution who reveres the brilliance of the Framers, I assumed this would play disastrously into the hands of the Statists. However, today I am a confident and enthusiastic advocate for the process. The text of Article V makes clear that there is a serious check in place.
Whether the product of Congress or a convention, a proposed amendment has no effect at all unless ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States or by Conventions in three fourths thereof. . . . This should extinguish anxiety that the state convention process could hijack the Constitution.
After more research and reflection, the issue crystallized further. If the Framers were alarmed that states calling for a Convention for proposing Amendments could undo the entire undertaking of the Constitutional Convention, then why did they craft, adopt, and endorse the language? In Federalist 43, Madison considered both Article V amendment processes equally prudent and judicious.
He wrote, in part, That useful alterations will be suggested by experience, could not but be foreseen. It was requisite, therefore, that a mode for introducing them should be provided. The mode preferred by the convention seems to be stamped with every mark of propriety. It guards equally against that extreme facility, which would render the Constitution too mutable; and that extreme difficulty, which might perpetuate its discovered faults. It,
moreover, equally enables the general and the State governments to originate the amendment of errors, as they may be pointed out by the experience on one side, or on the other. . . . 27
There are other reasons for assuaging concerns. [snip]
It’s not like the federal government has ever violated the other amendments to the Constitution.
If Kagan gets her way and ‘convinces’ ruling class repbulicans that she has the power to veto amendments, then the political process melts down completely. The ability to amend the Constitution is the greatest political power we have. After that, we would be like the pathetic Greeks of Constantinople resorting to riots when tyranny gets too harsh.
