On the first day of its release, Mark Levin’s The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic reached the #1 spot in sales on Amazon.com–not just for political books, but all books.
Levin appeared on Hannity on the Fox News Channel on Monday evening to discuss the book, and his proposals to restore the Framers’ vision for limited government through an Article V convention that would propose eleven new constitutional amendments to restrain the runaway power of the federal government.
“I’m simply saying, I think it’s time, if Americans want to remain free, to start reacquainting ourselves with the Constitution, and specifically Article V, and specifically the second part of Article V, which is the amendment process. The Framers thought–some of them in particular–that we might reach this point with an oppressive centralized government….And so they left us a legacy,” he told host Sean Hannity.
“An oppressive federal government, an oppressive Congress, is not going to rein itself in,” he added, describing his proposal to use the states to create a convention to propose new amendments, which would then return to the states for ratification. He described his suggestion as a way to engage ordinary Americans in restoring the Framers’ vision for “the circle of liberty” around each individual.
A special edition of Hannity on Friday evening (9 p.m. EDT/6 p.m. PDT) will feature a panel discussion about The Liberty Amendments with Levin, Hannity and over a dozen conservative thinkers, including Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Joel B. Pollak.
