Mark Levin laid out his argument for setting up the ground work for having the states take charge at getting this country back to its founding in his latest book The Liberty Amendments- Restoring The American Republic. Mark wrote the only way to get this country back on track is to have the states to begin the process of amending the Constitution by the state convention process.
Mark Levin admitted in his book he was skeptical of this idea. ” I was originally skeptical of amending the Constitution by the state convention process. I fretted it could turn into a runaway caucus. As an ardent defender of the Constitution who reveres the brilliance of the farmers, I assumed this would play disastrously into the hands of the statists. However today, I am a confident and enthusiastic, advocate for the process. The Text of Article V makes clear that there is a serious check in place. Whether the product of Congress or a convention, a proposed amendment has no effect at all unless “ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the states or by Conventions in three fourths thereof…” This should extinguish anxiety that the state convention process could hijack the Constitution.” Mark Levin The Liberty Amendments page 15.
I personally like this idea. I think Adonai guided Mark Levin to write this book. Our country is severally off the tracks and we are now headed straight to hell if we don’t return to our founding. Our founding is two fold. We are founded upon the word of Adonai, The Torah and The Tanakh and the principles founded in the Adonai’s word. The result of this is reflected and written in The Constitution.
Without Adonai’s grace and abundance we would have never beat the greatest fighting machine of the day the British army. In real world terms George Washington should have had his butt kicked all the way to Britain and back again yet the rag tag army of George Washington won. Why? George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin and the rest prayed to my Adonai of Avraham, Yitz’chak, and Ya’akov. These men sought Adonai’s will and direction and thus HE blessed us and gave these brave men HIS protection and we were given life, liberty, and freedom.
What is going on in my country is the direct result of we as a people and our leaders snubbing their collective noses and turning their backs on Adonai and Yeshua and shouting from the roof tops we can do it better than our creator. This is a one-way ticket to hell. The fruits of our labours are seen on a daily basis.
Mark Levin states it this way “It turns out that justices are also God’s children; and being of this world, their makeup consists of actual flesh and blood. They are no more noble or virtuous than the rest of us, and in some cases less so, as they suffer from the usual human imperfections and frailties. And the Court’s history proves it.” ―
I am about a quarter of the way through Mark’s book. I bought the book in October. So far there are two amendments that has caught my eye. Restoring The Senate-the repeal of the Seventeenth Amendment in Chapter Three. The other is establishing term limits for Supreme Court Justices and a Super majority Legislative override.
Our Founding fathers vision was to have the Senate to represent the states. The House was the people’s house. Our founding fathers never intended to have professional politicians but to have us serve our county by either serving in the House or the Senate for a term. Two years in the House and six years in the Senate and then go back home and work and be of service in the private sector.
Mark put it this way, “Today Congress operates not as the Framers intended, but in the shadows, where it dreams up its most notorious and oppressive laws, coming into the light only to trumpet the genius and earnestness of its goings-on and to enable members to cast their votes. The people are left lamebrained and dumbfounded about their “representatives'” supposed good deeds, which usually take the form of omnibus bills numbering in hundreds if not thousands of pages, and utterly clueless about the effects these laws have on their lives. Of course, that is the point. The public is not to be informed but indoctrinated, manipulated and misled.” ―
In the end our self-destruction is done by our own hand. Our leaders think they are god or King and know how better to run the universe better than our creator Adonai.
To see who is the real problem hold up a mirror and see what we are looking at it. US!
Adonai is warning us to repent of our evil ways and return to HIS word. If we don’t our one-way ticket to hell and self-destruction will be paid for in full.
Adonai has spoken.
