Publisher's Summary

Mark R. Levin has made the case, in numerous New York Times best-selling books - Men in Black, Liberty and Tyranny, and Ameritopia - that the principles undergirding our society and governmental system are unravelling. 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 begin oppressing the people. Agencies such as the IRS and the 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 pur­pose of amending the Constitution. Levin argues that we, the people, can avoid a perilous outcome by seek­ing recourse, using the method called for in the Con­stitution itself.

The Framers adopted 10 constitutional amend­ments, called the Bill of Rights, that would preserve individual rights and state authority. Levin lays forth 11 specific prescriptions for restoring our founding principles, ones that are consistent with the Framers' design. His proposals - such as term limits for mem­bers of Congress and Supreme Court justices and lim­its 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.

    "We need to enhance the Constitution"

    Mr. Levin has penned a good start to some changes for the Constitution, I would recommend this book to get your thoughts going. We need to fix some things before the pitchforks, tar and feathers come out.

    "Eye-opening plan on how to fix America's problems"

    Great book. The info in this book will open up your eyes to a lot of things, and give you all the ammo you need to debate any big-government progressive/statist/communist/etc. on a variety of important topics.

    Story
    "A Workable Plan for Saving Our Country"

    Mark Levin again communicates expertly what the Founding Fathers intended when they wrote the documents which would form the framework for the greatest country in the world. Politicians and justices have brought us far from this original framework.
    Through readings from original documents, the intent of the framers comes alive.
    Chapter by chapter, amendment by amendment, we see a way out of each dilemma; the erosion of states rights, the insidious encroachment of our personal liberties, the ballooning bureaucratic state with its unending regulations just to name a few.
    Our government has grown out of anyone's control, having taken on a life of its own. Over time the citizen has become impotent to resist. Mark gives the reader hope, and a way to join the fight.
    Thank you, Mark Levin. You are truly a gift from God to the quiet Patriots in America who want to help save this great land for our children and for generations yet unborn.
    The reader (after the author's reading of the first chapter) is easy to listen to and follow, holding my attention by his obvious interest in the subject. The listener could not ask for better.

    "Only by contending with challenges..."

    Only by contending with challenges that seem to be beyond your strength to handle at the moment you can grow. It is curious...curious that physical courage should be so common
    in the world...and moral courage so rare. This is Mark Levin...

    "Great Book and a Great Plan"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I wish everyone would read this, understand it and act on it.

    Only complaint: I wish Mark had done the audio all the way through. He does the beginning, but he is so strong.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Liberty Amendments?

    First chapter


    Any additional comments?

    Buy the book for others. I plan to.

    "Here, Here!"

    We need changes to our political system and government. Congress will never make the changes needed, so WE THE PEOPLE must do so.

    Here is how!

    Excellent ideas!

    "Mark Levin explores the Article Five Convention"
    Any additional comments?

    Mark Levin might lean heavily to the right; most on the left won't even listen but we should all be listening. Mark Levin has compiled the most incredible resource for understanding the Article Five process and how to change the Government Factory for the better, without the Congress. It's clear, concise and informative. If you don't read this, you can't say you understand the powers protected for the People and the States as fully as you should. Libertarians, Conservatives, Moderates and Liberals and Progressives, This book is about your rights and how you can protect them. This is not Right wing Propaganda. Mark Levin's writing in general is above the reproach of the standard political warfare because he backs a majority of his commentary with factual information and iron-clad research.

    Would you listen to The Liberty Amendments again? Why?

    I'm on my third or fourth time - History I was never taught - American and World.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Liberty Amendments?

    The clear parallels between the utopian plans and the current US Administration are truly reveling and disturbing.


    What does Jason Culp and Mark R. Levin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Over coming the pronouncing issues in the historical texts.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Carl Marx's Communist Manifesto is also describes a utopian plan
