Mark Levin's New Book

I have never listened to Mark Levin's show.  I am, however, highly intrigued by his new book, The Liberty Amendments.

A book review by Breitbart's Joel Pollak summarizes:
Levin's The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic, released Aug. 12, is an ambitious plan to save the American political experiment from the encroachments of big government in Washington, D.C. 
Yet his solution is not a political one that looks for new ways of winning elections, or a policy formula to enact conservative ideas. Levin proposes to amend the Constitution itself--not once, but eleven times.
He goal is to motivate and mobilize fellow conservatives to push for a national convention to propose new amendments, under a never-before-used provision of Article V of the Constitution. Before meeting, the convention will require the assent of two-thirds of the states; afterwards, its proposals will require the approval of three-fourths. 
This is a genius idea. Polls, problematic though they may be, consistently show that many laws and proposals by our government - including Obamacare - are unpopular. Wildly unpopular. Yet Congress and this administration are not interested in the will of the people, so we must make them interested by circumventing them - all within our legal rights as set out within the Constitution. My husband likes to say that the Constitution is one of the most important documents that no one reads. It's not hard to read or find, though. Go here.

Breitbart News also gave Mark Levin an interview, presumably to give his book publicity and allow him to discuss what is in it and why he wrote it. I recommend reading any of these links. His 11 proposed amendments are interesting and best of all, make sense. His overarching idea is that we must use the Constitution to save the Constitution.
