"The Great One", and just "The One"

There's a reason why they call Mark Levin "The Great One." It's blunt ads like this:


American Spectator is a good website, and Mark Levin is a great American. His book, Liberty and Tyranny, is one of the few modern conservative books that will stand the test of time. It's meticulously researched, entirely coherent, and comprehensive on historical and modern political debates. This qoute, on page 22, is something everyone should keep in mind when considering expansion of government-run health care in the guise of "reform":
"Of all the tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis
Something to keep in mind for all sorts of reform: health care, "global warming" or "climate change," and whatever else has been promised by The One.
