You might want to go – run, in fact – and get a copy of conservative radio host Mark Levin’s new book, “The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic,” which comes out Tuesday.
Levin proposes that the states use Article Five and convene a constitutional convention to consider amending the current Constitution in an effort to get the big-government country back on the track the Framer’s intended.
Levin suggests new amendments, the Liberty Amendments, due to “the necessity and urgency of restoring constitutional republicanism and preserving the civil society from the growing authoritarianism of a federal Leviathan.”
Levin specifically proposes two amendments calling for a “limit on federal spending and taxation,” that would include moving April 15th tax day to the day before election day every November.
“I think this is very important, because if you’ll notice, election day and tax day are about as far apart as they can get, like seven months apart,”Levin said in an interview with CNS News’ Terry Jeffrey. “So we’re voting on the promises of politicians rather than the reality of what these politicians have done.”
“In my view,” Levin continued, “particularly when it comes to incumbent politicians, those of us who still pay federal income taxes, we pay our taxes, then the next day we go and vote. I think that is crucially important, so we are linking reality to the electoral process.”
Jeffrey summed it up beautifully, and one can imagine how different things might have been today:
“So that would mean, if it were enforced last November, we would have gone out on Monday and paid all our taxes to the Obama regime and gone out the next day and decided who we wanted to vote for.”
“That’s exactly right,” Levin quipped. “There needs to be a connection between what the government actually does and how you’re voting.”
