Product Overview

MARK R. LEVIN HAS MADE THE CASE, IN NUMEROUS NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING BOOKS?MEN IN BLACK,LIBERTY AND TYR?ANNY, AND AMERITOPIA?THAT THE PRIN?CIPLES UNDERGIRDING OUR SOCIETY AND GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEM ARE UNRAVELING. INTHE 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 consti?tutional system in pursuit of an all-powerful, ubiqui?tous 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 consti?tutional revival.

The delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Conven?tion in Philadelphia and the delegates to each state?s ratification convention foresaw a time when?despite their best efforts to forestall it?the Federal govern?ment might breach the Constitution?s limits and begin oppressing the people. Agencies such as the IRS and EPA and programs such as Obamacare demonstrate that the Framers? fear was prescient. Therefore, the Framers provided two methods for amending the Constitution. The second was intended for our current circumstances?empowering the states to bypass Congress and call a convention for the pur?pose of amending the Constitution. Levin argues that we, the people, can avoid a perilous outcome by seek?ing recourse, using the method called for in the Con?stitution itself.

The Framers adopted ten constitutional amend?ments, called the Bill of Rights, that would preserve individual rights and state authority. Levin lays forth eleven specific prescriptions for restoring our founding principles, ones that are consistent with the Framers? design. His proposals?such as term limits for mem?bers of Congress and Supreme Court justices and lim?its on federal taxing and spending?are pure common sense, ideas shared by many. They draw on the wisdom of the Founding Fathers?including James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and numerous lesser-known but crucially important men?in their content and in the method for applying them to the current state of the nation.

Now is the time for the American people to take the first step toward reclaiming what belongs to them. The task is daunting, but it is imperative if we are to be truly free.
