Senator Rand Paul just offered a Facebook post congratulating conservative talk radio host and best-selling author Mark Levin about his new book The Liberty Amendments, and encouraging people to buy it. This is an important development because Mark Levin was very critical of Paul's father, Ron Paul, during the 2012 presidential campaign.
Many Libertarians and Conservatives are calling for a national level organizational strategy to change the culture and restore the Constitutional Republic. Levin is suggesting such a course in his new book, and has already begun to encourage grass roots community organizing to get it done. This is an important new direction for conservative talk radio. The effort could re-galvanize the energy behind the Tea Party Movement.
Many people believe Ron Paul was the father of the Tea Party Movement as I have written about before. At early Tea Party rallies it was common to see many Ron Paul shirts in the crowds but also people waving Levin's Liberty and Tyranny book around. Both factions agree that 20th Century Progressivism and all of its extensions is the enemy of liberty, and by extension one of the main causes of the downfall of the Republic. Therefore, this is a natural coalition that could unify the liberty/conservative energies throughout the United States.
Two things could help this coalition grow. Both gentlemen would need to put their egos aside and do what many people believe is good for America. Supporters of both men would need to do the same. Ron Paul could speak out in support of Levin's intentions. Mark Levin could apologize to Ron Paul for his vicious attacks during 2012.
Furthermore, Mark Levin could continue his recent attack on the Republican Establishment and express more vocal support for Edward Snowden, who is a hero to the Ron Paul tribe. Ron Paul could do more to marginalize the fringe associations that connect with the Ron Paul Revolution and make it difficult for some grass roots conservatives to associate with Paul's Liberty Revolution.
This is a marriage that seems destined to happen and would do much to advance constitutional conservatism.
