Unleash the Fury – The real issues behind the debt ceiling, fiscal cliff, Obamacare and gun control debate – LIBERTY
Mark Levin has been on point from day one. The issue of the day is secondary. The primary issue, the primary attack from the left has been on your personal liberty. It amazes me how often the Democrats compare Conservatives to Nazi’s. They are doing it again over the gun control debate. It’s disgusting, 100% inaccurate and ironically has more in common with their own agenda. The Nazi’s were not Constitutionalists. Nope, State run, state controlled oppression. Someone else is to blame for you troubles. It’s not your fault. Once we get them, everything else will be fine. Tanks didn’t bring the Nazi’s to power in Austria and Germany. Nope, the Germanic people voted away their freedoms and voted in tyranny and oppression. Tyrants throughout history have used real or manufactured crises to advance their agenda. They use fear to trick people into giving up their basic freedoms. I am not comparing any of our current leaders to Hitler – I am telling you History is ripe with examples of leaders amassing dangerous powers in the name of the ‘common good’. Wake up.
Today’s rant from Mr. Levin is over the hypocrisy of the left and unconstitutional, illegal actions they are considering. The same arguments applied over Obamacare, the fiscal cliff and will again for the debt ceiling fight.
MARK LEVIN: You know folks, I’ll be honest with you. I just told a friend of mine — even though I sit behind this microphone and I try to be civil and so forth — I can barely contain my fury about what’s going on in this country. I’m just being honest with you. I can barely contain it. I’m so frustrated by this tyranny, you have no idea. Now we can analyze it, we can intellectualize it, we can parse it and so forth and try to unravel it. But I’m just telling you, from an emotional point of view, it is just so damned infuriating to see the greatest country on the face of the earth run by a bunch of lilliputians, who are constantly attacking it from within.
No discussion on the news programs about an imperial president exercising an authority he does not have under our constitution. Nothing. No discussion about all the lives saved and all the people protected as a result of the Second Amendment. Nothing. They continue to perpetuate the lie, the big lie that somehow, some new regulation, some new government fiat would have prevented what happened in Newtown, Connecticut. And then they pretend that they’re for law enforcement. They pretend that they’re hard on crime when they’re not.
We have evidence over one decade after another of how the very same people pushing for gun control against law-abiding American citizens support radical left-wing judges who are soft on criminals, support weakened sentencing rules, decriminalizing this and that. Since when was Obama strong on fighting crime? Since when has Obama supported law enforcement? But here he is, you know, ‘we have to stop gun violence.’ No, we have to stop violent criminals.
From the Archives:
What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they can always blame those who own businesses in the private sector…
The left’s vision is not only a vision of the world, but also a vision of themselves, as superior beings pursuing superior ends. In the United States, however, this vision conflicts with a Constitution that begins, “We the People…”
Only our own awareness of the huge stakes involved can save us from the rampaging presumptions of our betters, whether they are called socialists or fascists. So long as we buy their heady rhetoric, we are selling our birthright of freedom
