To the editor:
The Liberty Amendments (Restoring the American Republic) by Mark Levin is an alternative method of amending the Constitution. The states are permitted to by-pass Congress by proposing amendments to our Constitution.
Our Constitution has been amended by two-thirds of Congress proposing an amendment that is ratified by three-fourths of the states. The dormant method that has been unsuccessful is two-thirds of the states proposing an amendment that is ratified by three-fourths of the states.
Levin believes our current government has, over time, become an authoritarian, out-of-control Leviathan – dictionary definition: A monstrous sea creature mentioned in the Old Testament or anything unusually large for its kind. Levin proposes 11 amendments, the first of which is “term limits for members of Congress.”
He admits that the task is daunting, but it is imperative if we are to be truly free. Levin’s recommendation is current, creative, interesting and controversial.
The Harrison County Tea Party will meet Tuesday, March 18, at the Faith Fellowship Hall, US 27 South. The topic will be the Liberty Amendments - a very good topic for those who are interested in our local, county, state and national government.
