"The federal government regulates most things in your bathroom, laundry room and kitchen, as well as the mortgage you hold on your house. It designs your automobile and dictates the kind of fuel it uses. It regulates your baby's toys, crib, and stroller; plans your children's school curriculum and lunch menu; and administers their student loans in college. At your place of employment the federal government oversees everything from the racial, gender, and age diversity of the workforce to the hours, wages, and benefits paid. Indeed, the question is not what the federal government regulates, but what it does not." - pp. 6-7
There is a long and arduous road ahead of us. But at least now we have a plan. Tea party conservatives and constitutionalists all across the fruited plain have been casting about desperately searching for a viable way to counteract the destructive progressive agenda that is now being implemented in our nation. One wonders when, if ever, the American people are going to wake up. Mark Levin is a highly-respected lawyer author, and conservative commentator and he thinks he knows how to fix what ails us. He presents his plan in a thoughtful and engaging new book "The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic". If you are anything like me you are going to learn an awful lot while discovering just how little you really know about our founding documents.
Throughout the pages of "The Liberty Amendments" Levin offers up a series of concrete proposals designed to return America to fiscal sanity while at the same time drastically reducing the government leviathan. The statists are definitely not going to like this! In all, Levin offers up a total of 11 extremely well-thought out amendment ideas ranging from limiting federal spending and taxation to a much-needed amendment to protect private property. Those of us who recall the 2005 Kelo vs. City of New London case recognize just how important this proposal is. I was also intrigued by the thought that we could actually limit the terms of Supreme Court justices. Clearly this is an idea whose time has come. With each one of these ideas Mark Levin offers some valuable insights into the issues involved gleaned from a wide variety of sources. Frankly, I found this book to be downright fascinating from start to finish.
At just a bit over 200 pages "The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Repbulic" can be easily read in just a few sittings. I commend Mr. Levin for taking the time to show us a possible way out of the malaise we are currently experiencing in America. This is a thoughtful and very well-written book. There is an abundance of common sense in this volume. Very highly recommended!

I guess I would qualify as a frustrated writer. My work requires very little writing and so since 1999 I have been writing reviews on non-fiction books and anthology CD's on amazon.com. I never could … more
