Watch This: Los Angeles Liberty Fighter Nick Hankoff takes on Mark Levin on C-SPANSubmitted by Freedomfrank on Tue, 01/07/2014 - 12:59
Win one for Ron Paul rEVOLutionary, nullification and antiwar advocate Nick Hankoff as he takes on Mark Levin author of the book The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic. The issue at hand here is what tools do you have to fight tyrannical government---Nullification vs. Article V as Levin proposes? The 10A vs. Article V? All solutions handed to us by the Framers.
Now for some background: Levin and the patriots from the Tenth Amendment Center and Tom Woods have been at each others throats for the last six or seven months or so, and Levin in typical fashion has repeatedly denounced, disparaged and basically called all advocates of Nullification (and Secession) kooks not unlike what he did with supporters of Ron Paul in the 2012 elections. I give kudos to Nick Hankoff for initiating a civil debate and staging his counter attack on CSPAN today.
The arguments for Nullification and Article V are what they are, but, what is pertinent and immediate about Nullification is the fact that nullification is now a powerful movement and has taken off with numerous successes preserving our liberties in states and townships across this nation (California nullified the NDAA in October 2013 and South Carolina is about ready to Nullify Obamacare). In my opinion, Article V will not move fast enough to stop big government from encroaching on our liberties maybe because Article V largely relies on the action of elected people in Congress while Nullification firmly relies for the most part on the efforts of citizens of their respective cities, counties, and states. I will put my money on the people simply because as most of you should be aware that most politicians in high elected offices are working for some special interest-- not for the people, and Mark Levin knows this.
Levin of course is biased for his cause, after all, he is trying to sell a book probably more so than his/the idea. However, I will take a more skeptical view on Article V but more so on Levin. Mark Levin is firmly entrenched in popular conservative media and has had a great voice in shaping the political narrative of this nation for well over a decade. In my opinion he represents if not leads conservative mainstream medias’ current fascination with the word “liberty.” If you observe conservative print, radio, and television like I do, you will hear the talking heads talking liberty as never before. Please note that I’ve tracked this trend which seems to have its genesis a short time after the 2012 election cycle ended.
Fancy that! That --being the same conservative mainstream media that attacked, slandered, and worked tirelessly to defame Ron Paul ( Mr. Liberty, Freedom and Constitution) and his supporters during his 2012 presidential election bid have somehow morphed into the champions liberty!
What can we conclude from this? Mark Levin and his media cohorts can not be trusted. Every inch of body language and verbal response (or lack of response) from Levin and the host in the video provided are a testament to this.
His Article V solution though a legitimate solution amounts to a well crafted diversion to real and immediate solutions for concerned citizens that care for this country and the Republic it once was. Levin has a very large platform to promote his ideas and many in his audience that love this country as I do sadly buy in. They are being denied a powerful solution to counter this nations problems—Levin’s audience are being told lies.
One easy solution: It’s the easiest thing you can do--just turn off Levin and mainstream media.
