A post on tomwoods.com regarding Mark Levin

Mark Levin is a statist Neocon posing as a conservative. His Lincoln worship forces him to defend the very things he says he hates. He repeatedly rants on his radio show, calling Lincoln in exalted, sermonic tones, "A great man! A great man!!!" (Thanks be to God, the medium of radio spares us from having to behold the image of him frothing at the mouth while delivering such a proclamation.)
Levin is a man talking out of both sides of his mouth at once, as is his partner in crime, Sean Hannity.
This bit of brainwashing regarding Lincoln apparently happened to him in his youth, as he sat on his father's knee. It blinds him from seeing the truth about Lincoln and the consequences of Lincoln's policies and presidency. Therefore, he feels compelled to attack libertarians like Dr. Woods and Tom DiLorenzo, those TRUE advocates of liberty, who cut through the Lincoln myth and expose him for the tyrant he was.
Despite Levin's Lincoln worship it is clear he is deeply disturbed by what he sees going on today. Sincere though he may be, in Levin's desire to place checks on Federal power and defend state sovereignty, he cannot turn to common sense means, such as those found in Madison and Jefferson's famous Resolves, for that would be an attack on Lincoln.
Therefore, Levin's Lincoln worship and defense of Lincoln's war force him into a "work around."The fruit of said "work around" is, "The Liberty Amendments," Levin's new book that outlines a complex, convoluted, multi-generational, protracted and impossible process that no sane man could see as feasible--a process that cannot succeed, whether in whole or in part.
Lincoln worship clearly creates a condition of schizophrenia in Levin's thought.
I've written about this myself, providing a commentary on The Liberty Amendments. If anyone cares to see it I've posted it here:
Levin's Lincoln worship is the source of the cognitive dissonance and incoherence of Levin's thought and his daily radio messaging. Lincoln destroyed the voluntary nature of the Union, and he is apparently well on his way to destroying Mark Levin's sanity.

Hypothetical Historical Query

The Constitutional convention is closing, but before sending out the representatives to their various states to debate and ratify the newly proposed Constitution George Washington rises and says the following:

"Gentlemen, we've done the work of yeomen by creating a new Constitution. I think we all hope for its adoption by the Sovereign States, and that it will become the legal and procedural basis of a new central or general government, allowing our states to better cooperate for their mutual benefit and that of the citizenry of the sundry states.

I now send you to your various sovereign states to debate the issues and consider ratification of a new VOLUNTARY union, a union that will replace the Articles of Confederation.

Though you have all been sworn to secrecy regarding the actual content of the debates and ultimate sense of the meaning of this document, we must be candid with the citizenry.

Therefore, gentlemen, I implore you to make sure you tell all the delegates of the various ratification committees that once a state signs on to the new Constitutional Compact, if and when, at any future date, that state decides to leave this VOLUNTARY compact FOR ANY REASON--no matter how egregious--the General government will be compelled to mount a massive army, the size, scope and force of which have never before been seen on the earth, invade that state (or those states), slaughter tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of its citizens, destroy not only its military properties and emplacements, but also ravage the private homes, loot and destroy the properties of individuals, over throw the sovereign state government, subjugate the people, reduce their once free Republic to the condition of a conquered province, establish military occupation, disenfranchise the children of the sons of the Revolution of 1776 in that state, suspend elections and overrun that land with foreigners who will be placed, by Federal fiat, into positions of power and authority, to do as they please with impunity.

What's more, after the subjugation of that state, and after it is forced back into the union, it shall be forever mocked and hated, and those who died in defense of that state's independence and sovereignty shall be vilified, and the children of that state shall be forced into schools where they, generation after generation, will be taught to hang their heads and be forever ashamed that their forbearers had the temerity to want to be free of the Union and this glorious VOLUNTARY compact we now have the opportunity to join.

MAKE SURE, MAKE SURE you tell the delegates what will happen if their states ever decide to be independent of the Union once they accept it. Also, spread this message far and wide among the citizenry so they may appeal to the delegates, letting their will be known!!!

Go forth now with my blessing, and may the spirit of the Revolution of 1776 be with you all!"

Q: How many states would have signed on to the Constitution had the delegates brought that message along with the newly proposed Constitution?

Your answer will count 100% for your final grade in American history.

US hires out military as international hit Squad

In an attempt to bring you the most pertinent of news, the Armadillo posts the following news flash!

US hires military out as international 
hit squad to Saudis! 

White House reveals new business card, in an attempt to use the military for profit and pay off national debt.

John Kerry, speaking for the Obama administration said today, "The Saudis are the first to contract us to do their international dirty work, but they certainly won't be the last. If every thing goes as planned we'll have that national debt paid off in no time! That was my plan. Did Bush ever think that creatively? No! No he didn't!! You should have elected me. I kept telling you I had a plan. But you wouldn't listen....!!! Not even Teresa would listen. Why did I ever marry her?! Oh, yes. The money...always with the money!!"

A few moments after Kerry lost control he was taken off in a White House padded walled wagon for more therapy.

Despite the disturbance the new business card was displayed and, SHOCKER!, it was 

a big hit with the press. Who would have thought it?
