I think he's right in that last sentence. We've heard these phrases so much, "we can't sort out the myth from reality". I think it becomes very obvious when you hear the opposition.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

Boo Obama

I voted Libertarian.

The Bill of Rights and The Constitution,

he seems to be trashing it all.


What do you think?

sorry, but the US trying to be the police of the world and being involved in other countries affairs is partially why we are in this economic mess, AND why 9/11 happened, whether you want to admit it or not.

Objectively this is untrue. This is not simply a matter of debate or opinion. Your above statement is simply false on any level that makes sense in the really real world that exists outside of neo-'conservative' delusional fantasy and fairy tales.

It was built on an unsustainable bubble. How difficult is this to grasp? Only someone that has not read any financial news media in the past two years could declare, in the blase fashion that you have above, that Bush's administration was an economic success.

What do you think?
You only uphold the Constitution when it fits your agenda, that's what I think.

Edit: Ok, I was thinking of a different Mark Levin.

As far as how the project affected Levin, he believes that, on one hand, it reinforced an "abiding mistrust of organized religion" that he's had for some time. "Sometimes I wonder if more have been saved by God or slaughtered in the name of God. The toll is millions - not just Jews, but Catholics fighting Protestants, Sunnis against Shiites, Hindus against Siks." It's a tad ironic, then, that the experience of making Protocols has changed how he personally regards his own Jewish identity; he says he's become more familiar with and deeply connected to Judaism. "And yet amongst all races and religions, there are also so many unknown courageous heroes and martyrs who struggle for the age-old ideals of peace, justice and love," Levin adds.
