Saving the Constitution from 'Liberal Destruction'

The U.S. Constitution is a sacred American document. But national radio talk show host Mark Levin has started a modern-day movement to save it from liberals who seek to destroy it. Read Transcript


Reporter: THE LINES AT

BOOKSTORES ARE OUT THE

DOOR.

PEOPLE WAITING TO GET A

SIGNED COPY OF THE "NEW YORK

TIMES" NUMBER ONE

BEST-SELLER "THE LIBERTY

AMENDMENTS" BY MARK LAVIN.

THE RADIO TALK SHOW HOST AND

CONSTITUTIONAL SCHOLAR SAYS

HE IS FED UP WITH 100 YEARS

OF WHAT HE CALLS GROWING

AUTHORITARIANISM FROM

LIBERALS.

WE'RE FIGHTING FOR OUR

SOCIETY AND THE

CONSTITUTION.

WHAT ARE THEY FIGHTING FOR?

TWO TAKE IT ALL AWAY FROM

US!

WE KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO

HAPPEN IN SITUATIONS LIKE

THIS.

THE GOVERNMENT BECOMES MORE

COERCIVE, MOR MORE TYRANNY.

Reporter: HE BELIEVES

THE ANSWER TO THE PROBLEM OF

BIGGER AND BIGGER GOVERNMENT

RESIDES IN ARTICLE FIVE OF

THE CONSTITUTION, WHERE IT

SAYS THAT TWO-THIRDS OF THE

STATES, THAT'S 34, WOULD

NEED TO CALL CONVENTIONS TO

PROPOSE AMENDMENTS TO THE

CONSTITUTION.

AND THEN THREE-FOURTHS OF

THE STATES, THAT'S 38, WOULD

NEED TO APPROVE THOSE

AMENDMENTS.

IT IS NOT AN EASY

PROPOSITION.

ARE THEY DAUNTING?

YES, THEY'RE DAUNTING.

IT TOOK US 100 YEARS TO GET

HERE.

Reporter: SOME OF THE

AMENDMENTS INCLUDE: LIMITS

ON TAXES AND SPENDING,

REIGNING AND THE HUGE NUMBER

OF FEDERAL AGENCIES, AND

TERM LIMITS, NOT ONLY FOR

CONGRESS, BUT ALSO FOR

SUPREME COURT JUSTICES.

THE JUSTICES HAVE MORE

POWER THAN THE FRAMERS EVER

INTENDED, THEY'RE INVOLVED

IN MORE THINGS THAN THEY

SHOULD BE.

Reporter: LAVIN'S NEW

BOOK IS PICKING UP STEAM.

A GROUP CALLED "CITIZENS FOR

SELF-GOVERNANCE."

HAS STARTED A Facebook

PAGE, AND THERE IS MORE.

I READ A BOOK CALLED "THE

LIBERTY AMENDMENTS."

Reporter: AND SENATOR

TOM COBURN BECAME THE FIRST

SENATOR TO CONFIRMS HIS

SUPPORT OF THE

CONSTITUTION.

BUT LAVIN IS QUICK TO POINT

OUT THIS IS NOT A

CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION,

WHERE OUR FOUNDING DOCUMENT

CAN JUST BE CHANGED ON THE

SPOT.

ANY PROPOSED AMENDMENTS NUST

STIL MUST STILL BE APPROVED

BY THREE-FOURTHS OF THE

STATES.

HE ACKNOWLEDGES MANY

AMERICANS DO NOT WANT

CONSTITUTIONAL CHANGE.

IF PEOPLE WANT TO BE

ENSLAVED, THEY WANT TO BE

ENSLAVED.

IF THEY DON'T WANT TO

EMBRACE THEIR OWN HISTORY

THAT SHOWS THEM A WAY OUT,

THEN THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

EMBRACE THEIR OWN HISTORY.

Reporter:

WE CANNOT ALLOW OUR

ENEMIES AND ADVERSARIES TO

DEFINE WHO WE ARE AND WHAT

WE ARE.

Reporter: LAVIN SAYS

GOING THIS WAY TO LIMIT

GOVERNMENT IS NOT HIS WAY;

IT IS THE WAY OF THE

FOUNDERS.

AND SINCE HE BELIEVES THAT'S

THE FOUNDERS' WAY, HE IS NOT

WORRIED ABOUT WHAT HIS

OPPONENTS WILL SAY.

THAT WHOLE CROWD IS

MEANINGLESS TO ME.

THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF THIS

BOOK IS TO BYPASS THEM.

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM

CAN'T STOP US.

MSNBC CAN'T STOP US.

OSSIFIED REPUBLICANS CAN

STOP US.

ONLY WE CAN STOP US.

Reporter: DAVID BRODY,

CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.
