"The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic"

We're reading Mark Levin's "The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic". http://www.amazon.com/Liberty-Amendments-Restoring-American-Republic/dp/1451606273.

Everyone's debating the pros and cons of his approach. Read the book and join the discussion!

We'll finish up the book for the January 6th meeting at 7PM at the Sump Memorial Library in Papillion.  Please bring ideas for the next book you'd like to cover.

    When the preferences of the Party members are greater than the passion for the Party principles; it is ineffective and cannot make a change no matter how right hy are.

    Here are the three most important books and three most important documents:

    Three books:
    Federalist Papers
    Democracy in America
    Rules for Radicals

    Three docs:
    Declaration
    Constitution
    Port Huron Statement (Radical SDS paper that has governed much of the left's strategy)

    The three books that Ronald Reagan thought everyone should read were:

    The Road to Serfdom, Friedrich Hayek
    Economics in One Lesson, Henry Hazlitt
    The Law, Frederic Bastiat

    Here are the links to the Readers Digest condensed versions of the first two books:

      Hmmmmm. The Federalist Papers do articulate the rationale for our Constitution...both of which are only one level up from the Bible. Of course our Founders mastered heavy sledding and our Republic is testament to that. But I don't know that you'd need them to save the country. (Gadfly musing...let me know when you get to the Federalist Papers, assuming we don't get blown up, beheaded or imprisoned before then. I've always wanted to finish reading them, but I'm not much of a sledder.)

      One of Glen and my colleagues in the Heritage Book club (Nick) recommended Economics in One Lesson to me. If we don't do a "how to" vet candidates or help them for the primary this spring, I would be interested in that book. The Law would be OK, too. The Federalist Papers (as well as the "Anti Federalist Papers") could be taken one at a time. We could go through serially or prioritize.

    At our meeting Monday night, I promised to post the Rabbi Lapin links and the book lists with links to the PDF's. I'll post the lists and PDF's separately. Here are the links to the three Wallbuilders Live segments of Rabbi Daniel Lapin at the 2013 ProFamily Legislators Conference:

    Susan, social events are good, but we don't do those very often. Nevertheless, we're glad you were able to participate. You greatly added to our discussions, and we will miss that. Are you participating in the webinar Tuesday evening? We would welcome any comments you have from that even if you can't attend the meetings in person. All of us want to make a difference. Your focus on the Liberty Amendments and there implementation will do so. And, if you change your mind, we will look forward to seeing you again. Everyone else, we will have a great discussion tomorrow night. Keep warm!

    Mark has discussed the dif between nullification and the Art 5 convention. I'm still digesting all that, but I shared a link with our Glen to pass around on it. The nub of it seems to be that nullification posits the right of a state to unilaterally reject a federal law. (Obama's good at that.) But Art 5 convention requires 2/3 to propose an amendment and 3/4 to ratify. I thought Lotfi was all over the map in his column. I've gotta say that I would tend to go with Mark's argument over all the competition, but we haven't heard the end of this! It will be crystal clear in no time. :)

    Tonight's TeaParty patriots webinar was a good beginning. Pretty basic, but each Tues at 6:30--our time--for the next few weeks they'll cover pros and cons of Art 5 Convention and what amendments should be pursued, etc. Very good initiative.

    See ya soon!

    I found a post on that DCRP FaceBook group page I mentioned tonight linking to an article appearing on the liberal Washington Times' "Communities" blog. It criticizes Mark Levin for his stand in The Liberty Amendments against nullification: http://communities.washingtonti...­

    Too cold, too far, too late at night. I'll have to pass. Please include me in your social get-togethers. I've really enjoyed this group. I'm going to stay focused on Twitter and Liberty Amendments/Mount Vernon action steps. Stay warm!!!

    In the meantime, just read Levin's latest on Madison rejecting nullification (as practiced by S. Carolina and confederates) http://on.fb.me/1iDiTDM­

    On Twitter, @TenthAmendment countered Levin: http://bit.ly/JS5Cbl­ Sounds to me like the term "nullification" got twisted for twisted purposes. Nothing new under the sun. :)

    Are you sure we should meet Mon night?? It's going to be very cold!
