Mark R. Levin has made the case, in numerous bestselling books that the principles undergirding our society and governmental system are unraveling. In The Liberty Amendments, he turns to the founding fathers and the constitution itself for guidance in restoring the American republic. The delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention and the delegates to each state’s ratification convention foresaw a time when the Federal government might breach the Constitution’s limits and begin oppressing the people. Agencies such as the IRS and EPA and programs such as Obamacare demonstrate that the Framers’ fear was prescient. Therefore, the Framers provided two methods for amending the Constitution. The second was intended for our current circumstances—empowering the states to bypass Congress and call a convention for the purpose of amending the Constitution. Levin argues that we, the people, can avoid a perilous outcome by seeking recourse, using the method called for in the Constitution itself. The Framers adopted ten constitutional amendments, called the Bill of Rights, that would preserve individual rights and state authority. Levin lays forth eleven specific prescriptions for restoring our founding principles, ones that are consistent with the Framers’ design. His proposals—such as term limits for members of Congress and Supreme Court justices and limits on federal taxing and spending—are pure common sense, ideas shared by many. They draw on the wisdom of the Founding Fathers—including James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and numerous lesser-known but crucially important men—in their content and in the method for applying them to the current state of the nation. Now is the time for the American people to take the first step toward reclaiming what belongs to them. The task is daunting, but it is imperative if we are to be truly free.

Liberty is not synonymous with freedom. Without an historical, ethical, and moral understanding of liberty, freedom often becomes anarchy. In the Liberty Watch, journalist Charles E. Miller examines the various contexts in which liberty's meaning is obscured or misunderstood in today's society. For more than two hundred years, the United States has thrived due to the initial understanding that liberty does not come from a federal government, but from an omniscient God. Miller uses the founding documents of America's Judeo-Christian history, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, to support this theory.Unfortunately, today's America has largely abandoned the Christian beliefs which inspired the founders in 1789. Morality and rebellion have corrupted the divine concept of liberty, resulting in a tainted view of our origins. Miller encourages us to make our own choices according to information, conscience, and moral-ethical discernment. In addition, he explores several concepts relating to liberty and freedom, including: Religious liberty as political power Moral choice and liberty The police state and civil liberty Liberty and individualism Liberty and religious tolerance Reminiscent of Thomas Paine's Common Sense, the Liberty Watch delivers a thoughtful, patriotic view of the incredible freedoms citizens of the United States of America enjoy daily.

The essays contained in the present volume represent Bentham's attempt to influence the direction of political and constitutional change taking place in Spain and Portugal in the early 1820s. At the same time as commenting on Spanish and Portuguese questions, Bentham outlined important aspects of his own legal and constitutional theories, defended measures of democratic reform, and offered a vigorous defence of free speech and communication. The volume complements Colonies, Commerce, and Constitutional Law, in which Bentham commented on the disastrous effects on Spain of her attempts to retain her overseas possessions.

"Mit 60 konnte ich noch dieselben Dinge tun wie mit 30 - sofern ich ich erinnern konnte, was das war. Mit 65 ändert sich das. Man hört etwa auf, 25-jährigen Frauen nachzuschauen. Das heißt, ich drehe ich schon nach ihnen um, aber sie sind unscharf, und bis ich die Brille gefunden habe, sind sie weg. " Pointenreich und voller Selbstironie schildert Billy Crystal seine leidvollen Erfahrungen mit dem Älterwerden und erzählt von seiner Karriere als weltweit beliebter Entertainer und Hollywoodstar.

Democrat and Republican factions continue to spread lies, and the United States will be ruined if they’re allowed to go unchecked. Their behavior can easily be compared to the Jim Crow South – only this time, it’s constitutional conservatives who are being abused. The good people of America need to join forces to launch an MLK-style movement to restore equal rights and fiscal sanity. John Lofgren, an intellectual patriot, explains how the liberal movement and faux conservatives are perverting the entire fiscal system in this powerful narrative that uncovers startling parallels between the past and present. He traces the frightening trajectory of U.S. fiscal policy beginning with the 1840s Erie Canal financing. By providing a platform for proposing solutions to the corruption and misguided views rampant in government, the author seeks to bring the country back to a firm foundation of financial stability. This book builds a case to de-socialize the banking system, end preferential rights, and re-establish state powers in order to reignite the pride and diversity America once leveraged to great economic advantage.

Over the past hundred years, average life expectancy in America has nearly doubled, due largely to scientific and medical advances, but also as a consequence of safer working conditions, a heightened awareness of the importance of diet and health, and other factors. Yet while longevity is celebrated as an achievement in modern civilization, the longer people live, the more likely they are to succumb to chronic, terminal illnesses. In 1900, the average life expectancy was 47 years, with a majority of American deaths attributed to influenza, tuberculosis, pneumonia, or other diseases. In 2000, the average life expectancy was nearly 80 years, and for too many people, these long lifespans included cancer, heart failure, Lou Gehrig’s disease, AIDS, or other fatal illnesses, and with them, came debilitating pain and the loss of a once-full and often independent lifestyle. In this compelling and provocative book, noted legal scholar Howard Ball poses the pressing question: is it appropriate, legally and ethically, for a competent individual to have the liberty to decide how and when to die when faced with a terminal illness? At Liberty to Die charts how, the right of a competent, terminally ill person to die on his or her own terms with the help of a doctor has come deeply embroiled in debates about the relationship between religion, civil liberties, politics, and law in American life. Exploring both the legal rulings and the media frenzies that accompanied the Terry Schiavo case and others like it, Howard Ball contends that despite raging battles in all the states where right to die legislation has been proposed, the opposition to the right to die is intractable in its stance. Combining constitutional analysis, legal history, and current events, Ball surveys the constitutional arguments that have driven the right to die debate.

Der größte Teil des Buches wurde in den Jahren 1988/89 geschrieben, also dem letzten normalen DDR-Schuljahr. Der totale Zusammenbruch des Regimes war noch nicht absehbar. Die Gedanken und Gefühle des Lehrers Horst Müller, der Hauptperson, sind daher Zeit identisch. Sein Schicksal wird ohne Nostalgie spannend dargestellt, und es wird dem Leser begreifbar, warum sich so viele Menschen gegen das System zur Wehr setzten und es zu Fall brachten. .... und was geschah danach? Wer früher die DDR-Schule besuchte, wird in diesem Buch an vieles erinnert, was er schon längst vergessen glaubte.

One of his most important American studies of labor economics published in the twentieth century, this book outlines an evolutionary and behavioral theory of value based on data drawn from court decisions. Analyzing the meaning of reasonable value as defined by the courts, he finds that the answer is based on a notion of reasonable conduct. Expanding this point to encompass the habits and customs of social life, he shows that court decisions are based on customs that are powerful forces shaping the economic system. In an early review Wesley Mitchell declared that Commons [1862-1945] carried this "analysis further along his chosen line than any of his predecessors. Into our knowledge of capitalism he has incorporated a great body of new materials which no one else has used adequately.": American Economic Review, XIV (1924) 253.

Don’t miss syndicated radio host and author Mark Levin's #1 New York Times acclaimed and longtime bestselling manifesto for the conservative movement. When nationally syndicated radio host Mark R. Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny appeared in the early months of the Obama presidency, Americans responded by making his clarion call for a new era in conservatism a #1 New York Times bestseller for an astounding twelve weeks. As provocative, well-reasoned, robust, and informed as his on-air commentary, with his love of our country and the legacy of our Founding Fathers reflected on every page, Levin’s galvanizing narrative provides a philosophical, historical, and practical framework for revitalizing the conservative vision and ensuring the preservation of American society. In the face of the modern liberal assault on Constitution-based values, an attack that has resulted in a federal government that is a massive, unaccountable conglomerate, the time for reinforcing the intellectual and practical case for conservatism is now. In a series of powerful essays, Levin lays out how conservatives can counter the tyrannical liberal corrosion that has filtered into every timely issue affecting our daily lives, from the economy to health care, global warming to immigration, and more.

"Fast 500.000 verkaufte Exemplare in drei Tagen - die Enthüllung von Bushs ehemaligem Terrorberater Richard Clarke schlägt alle Rekorde" (SPIEGEL ONLINE) Binnen weniger Tage wurde "Against All Enemies" zu einem hochbrisanten Politikum, über das die Medien weltweit berichteten. Was macht die Schlagkraft dieses Buches aus? "Die Bush-Administration hat die Gelegenheit verpasst, Al Qaida zu zerschlagen", schreibt Richard A. Clarke. Sie habe alle Warnungen vor Al Qaida ignoriert, in einem unnötigen Krieg gegen Irak wertvolle Zeit verloren und dem Terrorismus Gelegenheit gegeben, sich neu zu organisieren. Wie kein anderer ist Clarke berechtigt, ein solches Urteil zu fällen. Zwei Jahrzehnte seines Lebens hat er dem Kampf gegen den Terrorismus gewidmet. Er war unter Clinton und Bush Cheforganisator der amerikanischen Anti-Terror-Politik und leitete in den entscheidenden Stunden nach den Anschlägenvom 11. September den Krisenstab im Weißen Haus. Sein Bericht, der sich auf die Entwicklungen vom ersten Golfkrieg bis zu "Bushs Vietnam" im Irak konzentriert, liest sich wie ein autobiografischer Thriller.
