Mark Levin: Fiscal cliff? We’re facing the COLLAPSE of our society and Republicans need to “wake the hell up”

Mark Levin noted a few months ago after the RNC had completed that one conspicuous thing was missing during the convention when we had the country’s attention. Of all the things that were communicated that week, the urgency of our fiscal situation was not one of them. And now we find ourselves in the same predicament. With a country hanging by a thread, so much so that the founders wouldn’t even recognize it, Levin says Republicans act like their backs are against the wall and they can do nothing:

And then I’ve got to hear Republicans today go on and on that their backs are against the wall, there’s nothing they can do. They run for office, they beg you for their vote and then when they’re there, they act like there’s nothing they can do. At least talk coherently! At least communicate coherently! Explain the dire situation. NOT THE FISCAL CLIFF, the COLLAPSE of our society in a few years if we don’t wake the hell up and deal with this.

We’ve got to fight this to the end! Come hell or high water, win lose or draw, we’ve got to fight this to the end.

We do not surrender our liberty to a bunch of union thugs and left wing groups!

We do not surrender our liberty to a bunch of incompetent Republican Party holders.

We FIGHT for our liberty!

It belongs to us and that’s exactly what the founding fathers would want.

That was just the ending. There’s so much more to Levin’s monologue and you can hear it below:

    I can’t listen. I might open a wrist or have a heart attack.

    • Orangeone

      You should listen. I would like to send Mr. Levin to Washington as our next Speaker of the House. He is the ONLY one that speaks with any sense next to Rush.

      • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

        Wow! JUST thinking that exact same thing earlier today.

        • Orangeone

          I’ve tweet Levin several times without reply…..I’ll keep trying

      • Indiana

        I wonder if they have write-in candidates in Virginia. ANY VIRGINIANS WHO READ THIS POST. GET IT DONE. GET MARK IN THE SENATE (MARK LEVIN, NOT MARK WARNER).

        • Orangeone

          Levin mentioned on a prior show that the Speaker of the House does not have to be  member of the House of  Representatives.  I think he would be outstanding in that role.

          • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

            I think he said Speaker doesn’t even have to be a member of Congress.

            • Orangeone

              Even better!  I can’t think of a Senator at all that I like.  Can anyone else?

            • Correct. SCOTUS also do not have to be judges or even lawyers to be appointed as well.

              • meyou

                Now with our voting history, a potato chip could become our president in 2016. All in favor say aye. I love Mark and would love to find a way to have him as THE official conservative spokesperson.

            • Indiana

              I believe I said to the United States Senate. Virginia Democratic Senator Mark Warner is up in 2014, he came in with the Obama wave in 2008

          • Indiana

    • The last half is worth a listen.

    • AtlEsquire1973

      wow, Mark is great. but the rest of the GOP is falling apart (even Rand Paul). I think these elected chumps are araid of Obama. I can’t think of anything else. I mean, this president out-spyed on the top spy. Hoover would be laughing at Patreus. Gen. Patreus is a great man, and in my opinion had a gun over his head (not literally). We live in a much more dangerous country than we did on 11/5/12. God bless all the people that want “freebies” from the country, and when we collaspe like all the others and they don’t get their government check and cheese; then you will see what you have done. I am afraid we don’t have 4 years. We don’t have 4 years.

  • notebene

    I have zero faith that the RINOS will take a stand and there aren’t enough fiscal conservatives to even make a dent. I am too angry to be afraid. There is a complete disconnect between the government and the people…we are now in a communist he l l hole.

  • Joe

    When enough people get disgusted

    that RINOs cannot help

    There will be some kind of revolution!

  • Stehekin912

    Bill Gates Jr. and Sr., Warren Buffet, Kennedys, Kerry, Pelosi, Reid, Hollywood movie stars, keep adding to the list….these VERY VERY RICH PEOPLE are Democrats.

    And the GOP is the Party of the Rich?

  • Although I want the country I grew up in back, we need to start realizing some issues are just plain losing issues. Okay this is going to sound a bit harsh, but I am sick of this being an issue, in a few months Roe v Wade will celebrate 40 years, we have had zero luck in reversing it, but it has cost us elections, so here’s what I propose. We stop talking about it all together, we don’t have to stand there on judgement day for their actions, they do. So if they want to kill their young, sterilize their teens, and oft their elderly don’t stand in their way. In one generation there will be no more liberals. BC, Abortions, sterilization, and a shot are far less expensive than supporting their kids generation after generation.

    Just make sure you get your kids away from the schools, because while they are killing their young they are stealing the brains of ours.

    • I could never support someone who doesn’t fight for life. It might not have been reversed, but it’s still worth fighting for, even if I’m still fighting for it when I breathe my last breath.

      • I am pro life, but fed up with this being a losing issue. I have to assume that anyone running for office as a conservative is also pro life, if not why not? But there is little that can be done until this issue is no longer an issue because idiot teens and young college students who have the morals of a dog in heat will always vote for BC and abortion at a minimum. Now the left wants to be able to provide transportation for teens to get sterilized as well. It won’t be long before they are just doing it, God help them if it is ever one of my family members.

        I feel bad for the poor, and for those duped by the left, but if we can’t get through to them the only solution is to let Margaret Sanger’s plan to eliminate follow it’s natural course. Financially it is far less expensive to pay for the BC, Abortion and even sterilization than to support them and their offspring for generations. 40 years, 50 million unborn deaths and still we are paying through the nose for Welfare. Even when you tell them and show them that she was an evil piece of work, they don’t want to believe it. Evil is taking over our country one day at a time.

        • I will never choose money over life. Yes educating the masses is hard work but Christ never said it would be easy.

          • colliemum

            I can see that there will soon be only one way left: like the Early Christians in the first hundred or so years after the crucifixion and resurrection of Our Lord, we can only lead by example, by leading exemplary Christian lives. That is even harder, but is the last recourse in the face of wilful depravity and sinfulness, like those days in the Roman Empire.

            • I agree. While most will fill focus on this life I will focus on eternal life.

    • sDee

      The left is amoral and they know they cannot force a moral man to abandon his. So they will always make abortion an issue. We need to change the argument. I’ve posted this thought before so I apologize if you have seen it already….

      The political class has pitted citizen against citizen on abortion because the politicians are too cowardly to ask or answer the essential question on the Federal Government’s role in abortion…at what point, from conception to death, does the Federal Government’s responsibility to defend our right to life, begin ?

      If the answer is (A) at “viability”, or, “once outside the womb” then the Unborn Victims Of Violence Act must be stricken from law because it defines a “child in utero” as “a member of the species Homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb”.

      If the answer is (B) “at conception”, then the Federal Government would have to act to protect the life of a child from abortionists at any stage of development.

      Barack Hussein Obama believes in live birth abortion so he would of course answer (A), “once outside the womb”. So do you see why he does not consider the Unborn Victims Of Violence Act, a valid law?

      This is the question we must force our politicians to ask and answer.

    • Ya know I think honestly the country we grew up in for the most part was a facade. I know one thing for certain. What I was told my whole what constituted smart was indeed dumb. About 90% of the people held up as smart were not smart. they were just shocking and that was passed off as smart. I don’t think we can blame all of the problems on happening overnight. I can point to many problems that began with the turn from the 19th to the 20th century. Education is one example of that. I also think many of these problems were indeed started by the greatest generation. I know that is going to tick a lot of people off but the reality is after the Depression then WWII they felt entitled and they raised their Boomer children to feel even more entitled. Much of the smoke filled rooms and hush hush secretive politics were perfected by the GG.

  • freenca

    Agree with Levin’s assessments. GOP and conservatives must not fold now, there are things that can be done. It’s going to be a tough slog through a lot of cesspool material. The time to give up and give in is never! We must make our representatives understand that we MUST be represented and our voices HEARD, as WE are still a large part of this nation and will not concede to unconstitutional lawlessness in our representatives, IN ANY BRANCH !!!

  • opinionatedhermit

    The leadership of the Republican Party has no message.

    Instead, they ride on the backs of people like Mark Levin who have real Conservative ideas, and real Conservative values.

    Evidently, it’s easier to criticize another person’s dogs, when you don’t have any of your own in the hunt ….

    • How many listen to Levin? Not many. The GOP has had a huge messaging problem ever since Bush’s 2nd term.

      • opinionatedhermit

        How many listen to Levin?

        There will always be one and only one answer to that question.

        “Not enough.”

    • sjmom

      The leadership of the GOP are feckless, cowardly and incompetent.

      • PVG

        Just like the BO regime.

        • sjmom

          I think Obama is doing just what he wants; not feckless but evil.

    • Most concise and precise comment yet. The Republican Party has no message. This election cycle, they were the party of what? Ok, they promised to fix the economy, debt, etc. But seriously, it’s been going on for so long, and past admins haven’t really done a whole lot. Too many people gave up, didn’t vote.

  • Scoop. I hope you can get Levin later talking about the idea of John Kerry being considered for Sec. of Defense. The sound bites of Ketchup boy are pathetic, but Levin is great.

  • Good luck…. The republicans in the congress are bunch of corrupt morons….

  • Levin’s disgust with the GOP is where I was 4 years ago.
    Just can’t get worked up about them any more.

    Meanwhile, conservatives, when you decide you’re ready to let loose the GOP apron strings, let me know.

    • Rshill7

      Why, what’s your plan?

      • PVG

        Great question.

      Best way is for businesses to layoff as many as possible, hopefully to get below 50 full time employees or cut hours to 28 to get below ObamaCare threshold and reduce Net Profit to ZERO which means $0 corporate taxes due at federal and state levels.

  • sjmom

    Obama thinks he has a mandate now that he has won another term and so feels free to unleash his second round of hell and chaos. The only way to get through this is to trust the Lord because without Him we will perish under the tyranny Obama is about to perpetrate on this nation.

    “If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31). As Christians we must remember this verse and not fear because the Lord is faithful and will deliver His people.

  • “…a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” – Thomas Jefferson

    Our present government sucks.

    “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government — lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.” – Patrick Henry

    Neither party seems to care about the Constitution and the people who voted for free crap are ignorant and have no desire to restrain our government.

    “Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.” John Adams

    We have our boys giving their lives for our liberties, yet while they are over somewhere else fighting for us, we let this nation be torn from them and us. What are we going to do to make things right? Wait and see what our spineless speaker does? Listen to those who blame everyone but themselves for why “our” side lost? Shall we continue to lament the rampant fraud which stole the election?

    I love Levin, he’s a great moral booster, and great for setting a flame under patriots. But I have to ask, what are WE willing to do to get this country back?

  • Highlandtwp

    How do we fight when the enemies of the Constitution cheat and steal? We tried at the ballot box and what did we gain. I need to know what concrete steps we must take in order to push back and defeat tyranny.

  • Betsey_Ross

    Ok, I am done with this. I know the dangers, I know we are in trouble, I don’t know how to fix it. Someone has to lead on this and so far I haven’t seen anyone step up. A lot of identifying the problem. It’s looking like we need a leader. It looks as if we need a new party. There’s only one person who could do it. She stepped aside to let someone else do it. They didn’t. Where are you, Sarah?

    • MaxineCA

      You can go to his website, click on audio. Todays entire program should be posted in about another 45 min. That’s how listen to his show every night. (Another plus is that you don’t get all the local radio station commercials, so you get the 3 hr. program down to about 2).

        Mark Levin is on every night? Wow. I get a link from his Twitter once in a while. Thanks for the tip!

    • Orangeone

      It’s on Scoop now too.

  • OK Mark, we hear ya. Since exercising my right to vote (yeah, I know that part in not in the Constitution) did little to affect change, what do you have in mind when you said we have to fight for our liberty?

    • WordsFailMe

    • jodypear

      No specifics here. Just remember, whatever we do, we’re not fighting for American liberties. We’re fighting for LIBERTY ITSELF! I have heard that the British believed, before the Nov. 6 election, that we were their last hope–for LIBERTY ITSELF!

  • Pickupdriver

    I have wanted to say this for a few days…this is a great place to come and voice our concerns, but we need action. I made some phone calls today…called one of my Senator’s, called the national RNC and left a message, called my state RNC office and he said the RNC is in a transition stage right now so just keep on calling, my state voted for Romney so the state RNC guy told me the complaints against voter fraud have to go through the Secretary of State’s office in the state where the fraud happened, I called Rob Portman’s office, tried to call Paul Ryan’s office but couldn’t get through. Tomorrow, I plan on calling more people and telling them there are many people who believe there was voter fraud on Nov. 6 and we want it to be addressed, and I plan on talking about Benghazi, the lies and cover-up, etc. I don’t know what else to do. There have been occasions when a group of us have went to our US Senator’s offices to speak our minds. Can we put our heads together here and devise a plan for we the people to take our country back?

    • opinionatedhermit

    50% or more of us are no longer in this category. Therefore, our government is inadequate. That is why we will have some other form of government very soon. I am guessing… dictatorship.

  • kim

    They didn’t do anything after the big 2010 sweep. What makes anyone think they are going to start now? You may not like the lib philosophy but at least they wear it openly and proudly. The GOP lies about who they are.

    • Other way ’round. The GOP is stuck on stupid for always letting the media bog them down in discussions of religion, homosexuality, guns, abortion, and self-reliance. Those are our core values, and we’re quite open about it, and most are proud to declare it, and call themselves conservatives. We just need people who can deal with the media.

      The left is all about making America less powerful, building an all-encompassing totalitarian state, and controlling your personal decisions. Yet when you confront them on it, they always act like it’s not what they want at all, and they are often afraid to use the terms ‘liberal,’ ‘socialist,’ or ‘marxist.’

  • 11Steve11

    Yeah, backs against the wall. Once elected, blown to and forth like the wind, I say. They might say, “if you are going my way, I will go with you.” Many of us are guilty of just following, aren’t we? I wonder how many posters here at this blog still detest Ann Coulter. A lot, is my hope, not because I dislike Ann, to the contrary, I think that she is a great American. I only hope that the masses that turned against her when the tide was out, still feel the same way when the tide has risen. You know, being consistent in personal moral values and all. I so agree with Mark, we must be consistent and dedicated to our fight for our liberty. In fact I just got a new puppy, half American wolf and half American husky.

  • We must do something other than rattling our chains from our discontent with the current Despotic Tyrant in power, and his crony henchmen and women in power of authority ruling over us, We the People.

    I just don’t understand why the States do not have a Constitutional Convention to make an Amendment in the US Constitution, making it against the law- ie; against the US Constitution directly, the Federal govt’s forced mandated buying of a product, which they can call a tax to implement, which is clearly not regardless of SC Justice Roberts lies stating so, ie; Obamacare, down the American people’s throats against our will. We the people and Individual States, under the 9th and 10th Amendments have that authority and right, as we must force them to obey and abide by the US Constitution verbatim, or be removed from office, by force if necessary.

    This we must do, or secede from the Union, either way we must do something instead of rolling over every time Boehner tells us to, whom is another liberal progressive RINO Obamacrat that must go !! He makes me want to puke, just listening to him !

    Between Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Boehner, McConnell, and SC CJ Roberts, have all conspired against the American people, and the US Constitution.

    Expect this sort of thing to continue into the future so long as politicians, burrocrats, and public unions have defined retirement benefit plans that are immune from market forces. Debt and failure don’t matter to folks who are immune from it’s effects, even if they cause a big chunk of the problems in the marketplace.

  • Levin is correct. A lot of people don’t seem to realize, including the conservative purists and Libertarians that voted third party, that society will collapse. Most just don’t want to believe it or can’t fathom it.

    If that happens another Dark Ages will take place.

  • And the funny thing is the complicit media will find a way to blame it on the Republicans. And although it’s not their fault, if the gutless wonders don’t show some backbone they deserve it. When the inevitable collapse comes the 47% will personally come to take from “the rich” when the checks and food stamps stop. Ford’s in his Fliver and all’s right with the world. Hmmm, where did I hear that?

  • colliemum

    Dear Mark Levin –

    doesn’t it look as if the GOP, as manifest in the pronouncements of their ‘leaders’, does not have positions to articulate because this GOP has turned into a huge machine to get their leaders into positions (Congress, Governors) where they can make shedloads of money. And those who’re already there want to keep their trotters in the troughs.
    Can’t say that out loud, can they – so all the ‘positions’ they ‘defend’ are only useful to throw dust into the eyes of the voters.

    Want proof?
    Just see what they did to Sarah Palin and to Allen West, and see how those candidates Sarah Palin endorsed are turning their back on her values as soon as they have been elected.

  • tinker_thinker

    Well said! I’m feeling better.. ready to carry on the fight.

  • bongobear

    I love Mark Levin…I just pray he doesn’t have a stroke someday. He is so passionate about the constitution, thank God, that he causes me to worry about his health. Without Mark we would have no articulate defender of the constitution on the radio…at least no one I’m aware of. In my opinion Rush and Hannity and their ilk don’t have the intellect that Levin has.

        I guess the comment did come across as a put-down and I didn’t really mean to do that. I listen to Rush and Hannity as often as I can and I think they are great spokesmen for conservatism. I just believe that Levin exhibits a much better grasp of the constitution and seems to be more passionate than the others. No offense intended.

        • Pickupdriver

          I worry about Mark too…I appreciate your clarification on Rush and Hannity. Myself, I am an avid listener of Rush, but not so much on Hannity…but that is just my personal opinion.

    1) the republicans in DC are no better than the Demunists. they are both out to keep the power they have accumulated over the years and neirther could care less about the people they “represent”. There are exceptions of course, but they are few and far between.
    2) I say let the whole thing collapse. It’s going to anyway, why not get it over with in the next couple of years? Then We the People can fight the communists and take back our Republic from them.

  • Republicans wake up? you need to address liberals in the same manner. Stop riding agenda and get down to work. If ever there was a time to keep “pork” out of the works it is now!

  • Wake up republicans? seems to me you need to address liberals in the same manner. Riding agenda is certainly not the right course and if ever there was a time to keep the “pork” out of the works it is now. Liberal policy is not superior neither for that matter is republican get this shit together!
