Mark's new book, The Liberty Amendments, debuted at number one on the September 1st, 2013 edition of the New York Times Best Seller List. Soon it became number one on the USA Today list as well. It stayed at number one for 3 straight weeks on the NYT list, and continues to be referenced by many of the best Conservative minds.
MARK R. LEVIN HAS MADE THE CASE, IN NUMEROUS NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING BOOKS - MEN IN BLACK, LIBERTY AND TYRANNY, AND AMERITOPIA - THAT THE PRINCIPLES UNDERGIRDING OUR SOCIETY AND GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEM ARE UNRAVELING. IN THE LIBERTY AMENDMENTS, HE TURNS TO THE FOUNDING FATHERS AND THE CONSTITUTION ITSELF FOR GUIDANCE IN RESTORING THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC.
For a century, the Statists have steadfastly constructed a federal Leviathan, distorting and evading our constitutional system in pursuit of an all-powerful, ubiquitous central government. The result is an ongoing and growing assault on individual liberty, state sovereignty, and the social compact. Levin argues that if we cherish our American heritage, it is time to embrace a constitutional revival.
The delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia and the delegates to each state's ratification convention foresaw a time when—despite their best efforts to forestall it—the Federal government might breach the Constitution's limits and become oppressive. Agencies such as the IRS and EPA and programs such as Obamacare demonstrate that the Framers' fear was prescient.
Levin argues that the Framers provided a method in the Constitution for addressing our current circumstances - which, he insists, must be resuscitated - and lays forth specific prescriptions for restoring the American republic. The answers, Levin insists, are not found in Congress, the Supreme Court, or the presidency.
This is a historic and compelling book, like few before it. Levin turns to the Constitution to save the Constitution and the nation's future. Levin declares that we, the people, have the power to reestablish constitutional republicanism, protect individual and state sovereignty, and reverse the centralization and concentration of power in the hands of governing masterminds and a massive bureaucracy. Levin explains that our demise is not inevitable if we rally to reclaim our heritage and follow the Framers' guidance.
