U.S. Constitution and EPA - #3576 - VIDEO: Mark Levin: You Cannot Have this EPA and a Constitution - CNS News (2) Mark Levin: 'Ameritopia:' - 'We Now Live in a Post-Constitutional Country' - CNS News

Mark Levin on 'Ameritopia:' 'We Now Live in a Post-Constitutional Country' - CNS News - Mark Levin says America cannot at the same time have a Constitution and an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that is doing what the EPA is doing today.  Levin made the observation in an interview with CNSNews.com about his new book, “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America.”  Modern American liberals, who are Utopias, Levin said, aim to erode the separation of powers built into the U.S. Constitution so that a “relative handful of masterminds” can tell everybody else what to do.  “This erosion has been going on for about a hundred years,” said Levin. “It’s at a much faster pace right now and there’s a reason for this--because you can’t have constitutionalism and utopianism.” “The purpose of the Constitution is to have a limited central government where the sovereignty remains with the individual and the people and the states,” said Levin. “The purpose of utopianism is the opposite of all that. It’s a relative handful of masterminds and their massive army of bureaucrats and their experts advising them from the colleges and so forth on how to run society. “You cannot have an EPA and a Constitution at the same time doing what this EPA is doing,” Levin told CNSNews.com.  Read more.......

Mark Levin on 'Ameritopia:' 'We Now Live in a Post-Constitutional Country' - CNS News - In an interview with CNSNews.com about his new book—“Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America”—Mark R. Levin said he believes America has already largely become “a post-constitutional country.”  The book, released Monday, compares the Utopian and unworkable schemes laid out by political philosophers from Plato to Thomas Hobbes with the vision of natural law, God-given rights, and individual liberty that inspired the Founding Fathers when they wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.  “Utopianism is not new,” Levin writes in “Ameritopia.” “It has been repackaged countless times—since Plato and before. It is as old as tyranny itself. In democracies, its practitioners legislate without end. In America, law is piled upon law in contravention and contradiction of the governing law—the Constitution.”  Levin’s verdict: Barack Obama and modern American liberals are firmly in the Utopian camp—pursuing a vision fundamentally at odds with limited government and human freedom.  “I believe to a great extent we now live in a post-constitutional country, where much of the Constitution is ignored or evaded,” Levin told CNSNews.com.  Read more........
