Breitbart Big Government ^ | February 27, 2014 | Tony Lee

Keynoting an event honoring the five-year anniversary of the Tea Party on Thursday, conservative scholar and talk radio host Mark Levin said that the Tea Party movement is the only thing standing between what is left of the country's republic and the tyranny of runaway government.

Levin said the government that is supposed to serve the people is "devouring" us, while the Constitution's firewalls are being breached by a lawless president, a feckless Congress, and an all-powerful Supreme Court.

He said it was an honor to speak in front of the Tea Party and thanked those in the movement for having the "spirit and enthusiasm of the founding fathers" and not being afraid to insist "on the federal government's compliance with the constitution's limits."

Levin said that for this, the Tea Party is "smeared and attacked by the ruling class, Democrats and Republicans alike," in addition to the media and "countless others who are dragging the nation into the abyss."

Levin said that, under this assault, it is understandable for those fighting for liberty to want to live quiet lives with family and friends and wonder "if it is worth it" and "if it will be able to reverse course." But he said that he also knew "you are Americans. You cannot be idle. And you will not be silent while a relative handful of self-aggrandizing masterminds seek to lord over you and your fellow citizens."

"You will not allow your country to fail," Levin declared.

Levin said that those in George Washington's Continental Army, before they crossed the Delaware, read Thomas Paine, whom President Ronald Reagan always read and quoted on the stump and to his advisers.

Better a Blue Dog Democrat than a false RINO Republican sell out! time for a Liberty Party my friend. Out brothers in England have shown us the way with the UKIP. Now some Tories are leaving the party to join the IP— Change is coming and it will not be easy—I fear some may lose their lives in this coming battle—to Obama’s Death Machine. Some will lose their treasure to the Mafia-IRS, Many may lose their reputation to the MSM but THEY WILL NOT LOSE THEIR HONOR.
