America is unrecognizable today because we have a president who has made it so and Congress has enabled him! The immigrants that came to this country from the 30s through the 60s kissed the ground they walked on, grateful to be FREE, never asking for any handouts! Today we are a nation full of TAKERS...everything is Give Me! Success is punished, but who is paying for all these hand-outs...us poor working shnooks (the redistribution of wealthers)! What will happen when the working class has had enough of paying the taxes so that this president can take seven million dollar vacations on us or find that ten people in front of us on the grocery line are paying with food stamps??? What then? Perhaps Depardieu, the actor from France has got the right idea! Let's take our money OUT of this country!
We lost this country when the SCOTUS re-interpretted the Commerce Clause to include anything and everything. The USCON was designed to limit government, the libs have infiltrated and over-ridden the balance of powers. Pelosi, with her eyes popping, couldn't even conceive of the notion that healthcare reform is not in the perview of Congress; it is supposed to be a free market endeavor.
The notion that the Fed Govt is to be limited (restricted) by the USCon; died when the SCOTUS re-interpretted the Commerce Clause. Remember Pelosi couldn't even conceive of the notion that there was things Congress couldn't do. USA is doomed, we're too far gone. The libs will be pleased.
There's nothing wrong with being defiant and "obstructionist" when what you're obstructing and defying is evil. The only Republicans who understand that are the Tea Party reps.
Another great rant by Levin. It's shocking how brazen this administration is with it's blatant disregard for fiscal sanity and each and every day I'm more and more convinced that the phony-Liberals want this country to fail. We have got to get some people with fiscal sanity or things aren't going to end well.
I totally agree the Repubs. need to come out from under the table stand on their hind feet talk like they know what talking about. Like being attacked by a rabid pit bull . when the bamster bits bit back harder. He made the rules, if they bring a knife you bring a gun. do I have to say anymore
Defiance and obstruction - the Great one is right: that's the only answer, and while defiance goes to the personal, obstruction is what the GOP Congress critters must do. Call them out, frighten them, and support those who showed they had a spine yesterday, like Louie Gohmert.
Btw - economics: a down-rating means higher interest rates will be demanded for the new loans Obama has to take up. That means repayment will become more expensive - and thus the deficit will grow, so guess what: higher taxes. Oh, a country can survive with sky-high taxation, like the UK did in the 1970s, where top earners were taxed at 90% when they earned above a set sum. But surviving like that means the economy tanks, and the next step is a loan from the IMF.
Levin is SO right. Not only do liberals feel that they have the right to always tell us what to do about everything, but they also feel they have the right to just disregard the Constitution. We are heading for a huge confrontation with these people and it could certainly come with a massive gun control bill. If Congress is foolish enough to try this, they are going to have a huge fight on their hands. This is what people have been fearing for years now. So how do you think the American public will react if Congress decides to make these fears come true? It will not end well.
Zero's plan is to eliminate the middle income earners. He never ever intended to protect the middle income earners. He all but said what he was going to do years ago, before he became President. He wants the very poor on one side and the very rich elite on the other. Hmmm. That's not socialist. That's downright communist. But hey, according to the mind-numbed masses who follow Zero, communism isn't all that bad.
Actually, I don't think his masses understand the difference. After all, they don't know which state they're supposed to vote in, that they're only supposed to vote once, that it's not okay to show someone else how to mark their ballot... the list goes on.
Many years ago, I knew some hard core leftist who objected to Reagan's policy in Central America. They formed something called Pledge of Resistance. In that Pledge, they pledged to do nothing that was taxable so that no money could go to the government for the military. I did not agree with them, but I learned a lot from watching them.
Maybe it is time for Conservatives to consider something along those lines
t is abput keepmg us poor amd sand stupid in in need ofsone body wit the know how to averthrow the senate
This could easily be the best of 'the great ones" monologues. I totally agree with everything he has said.
What else can you possibly say after this commentary? Mark remains right.
When will we break out the pitchforks and torches? When is enough enough? Are we seriously going to wait until it's too late before we act? When we start seeing anarchy and masses of people roaming the streets, stealing, fighting, burning... (think L.A.) - THEN we'll get busy? They want to take our guns away by the end of this month for crying out loud. Will that be the breaking point?
I'm sick of words. I want action. For now, I'll pray and prepare. I'll do my small part where and when I can... but if Americans as a nation don't stand up soon... we'll be North Korea after this dictator dog Obama is done with us.
Have to admit this just crossed my mind. The problem with this Republic is that We The People have no ability to hold those that fail to uphold the Constitution accountable. And I don't just mean the politicians, I include the idiot and uninformed voters.
Although everything Levin says is true, heck most Conservative sites I visit have been saying it since before 2008, longer really. The comments here and others say it. My question now is: Do the people even care America is no longer a Constitutional Republic. The reality is I hate my answer to that question. Clearly some do as this site and others confirm. But apparently we are a minority in education, in the Media, in the Press, in business, in Organized Religious Denominations, in our Military Leadership, and in National Politics as the Politicians, both D and R, along with the D fawning Media/Press rant that message down our throats each and every day.
Levin did say what needs to be done by the R's; obstruction instead of going along for the ride. We the people must also be obstructionists. It is our right and specifically stated in the Constitution our Leaders now ignore. I read somewhere today, maybe here, a lady say she would pay no more taxes until this Government got back to obeying the Constitution. Others say stop buying anything you absolutely don't have to for your survival needs. Reality, this Government just got reelected for four more years. The way the Government has and is ruling, what choice do we have but obstruct or accept.
You asked if the people even care that we're no longer a Constitutional Republic. Judging from everything seen and heard, I'd say most people never knew we were a constitutional republic in the first place.
Most people, it seems don't know the difference between a democracy and a republic. Questions concerning the difference use to be on civic tests. I highly doubt they are anymore.
You won't find public education delving that deeply into civics anymore. My kids told me that throughout high school they had only about two days a year that focused on U.S. history/civics. I've taken it upon myself to teach them what they need to know at home - reading and discussing the Constitution and Bill of Rights, discussing the different branches of government, etc. If we don't teach them at home the liberal indoctrination camps will make sure they don't know it.
Years ago I started a sort of family tradition of reading and discussing the Constitution or Bill of Rights every July 4th. I wanted my kids to understand what this country was about and know their rights. I remember my teacher... 7th grade... Mr. Patrito... not the best teacher I ever had, but definitely made an impression on me in this area. In my tiny town he taught all 7th graders and all subjects, but he KNEW his history.
Good for you for teaching your children. I tried to do the same and continue with my grandkids. U.S. History was my favorite subject. It was there my love for this country took place, wish I could remember the name of my teacher, he deserves a lot of credit for teaching many students the real history of this country.
I remember having to memorize the preamble and know the Bill of Rights backward. and forward.
My son told me all he learned in US History was how bad we treated the African American population.
He called out Paul Ryan later on but it wasn't much of a call out so much as a 'Young man, I'm somewhat disappointed in you' tap on the hand.
He's one of the best ranters on our side when he gets going but he too is part of the problem I feel. Actually no. Scratch that. The blind worshipers who refuse to criticize him at all are part of the problem. Funny thing is, they are also part of the solution.
How is it you are the only one pointing this out...how???? Thank you..the middle class would have to be blind to believe he's looking out for them..Projected debt...that's racist don't you know...
The "middle class" ie people who work, will find out how much he sold them down the river with their next payday. And I can't wait to hear them squeal like little pigs in a mud bath.
But when you get your information from Entertainment Tonight , I assume they will somehow blame this on some rich guy..or anyone but their leader..
Much as I respect Mark Levin, this is old stuff. It's no longer just us against Obama, republicans against democrats. He still can't accept the notion that the GOP have been Obama's accomplices.
Remember that Levin gets new audience members all the time and there are newbies to Scoop too. Levin's energy, if nothing else, is contagious.
It's time to stop this and start focusing all of our outrage on the Republican Party. We won't beat the libs until we have a party to beat them with and this one just won't do it. We have three years to give America an alternative. Time to get to work.
The reason we could not oust Boehner was not that we didn't have support for the idea - we didn't have a strong conservative leader to consolidate behind, and if the vote split the party too much, Nancy Pelosi might have been elected, so the Republicans who might have voted to replace him played it safe.
We need strong, charismatic, conservative leadership in the House!!!
We have 1 year to beat them. We need to take a stronghold in the 2014 elections and claim the Senate.
Waiting from election to election is a losing strategy, especially as the process will become increasingly corrupted. We have to start identifying ways we can shake things up in everyday life. Starve the beast, go Galt, be Breitbart. Dictatorships can only thrive on a population of compliant, predictable citizens.
Perhaps.. but my point was, if the House has the authority to vote to overturn an Executive Order - then WHY have they let Obama get away with all of the illegal EO's he has issued?
I suspect that the whole pay raise thing was a distraction, meant to throw us a bone and make it look like they were defending us from additional taxes.
Our elections will mean nothing if we do not address the massive fraud, which nobody is doing in a significant way, and pass Voter ID laws in every state. I think November showed us that!
The states must assert themselves against Obama's agenda. We can kill Obamacare by a thousand cuts and refusing to create exchanges and law suits based on religious freedom are a beginning! We must pass right to work laws to help the private sector and look at nullification to fight Obama's executive orders and EPA regulations, etc.
The House just overturned Obama's most recent EO for Congressional pay raises... WHY can't they do that with his other executive orders? Why don't they refuse to fund Obamacare? Why don't they refuse to fund the executive branch until Obama displays the proper level of respect for our Constitution? They are not using the tools that they have with their majority!!!
We need strong conservative leaders in positions of authority - that is the only thing that will save our republic.
