I’ve said this before and

I’ve said this before and will say it again: Mark Levin—and others like him—will use nice sounding phraseology that appeals to those who are disgruntled towards the federal government. This captures an audience. This gives some sense of security and relief. Then, like the charlatan that he is, will lead astray those folks into supporting persons that belie his rhetoric. He exploits his audiences’ patriotism and passion for policies that, if looked with due care, are contrary to and in conflict with conservative principles, like his support for a massive military establishment and its concomitant wars. He yelps for liberty, for decentralization, all the while advocating a national security state that swallows and destroys the constitutional framework he so prides himself in defending. Those “little platoons” conservatives defend simply can’t be sustained in the face of the federal Leviathan that, it should be obvious, is the natural result of having a standing army, intervening overseas without end, and the complete militarization of the police.
