Mark Levin: George Will is ‘trying to rationalize soft tyranny’ -- By Jeff Poor, The Daily Caller

LevinWill628On his Monday radio show, conservative talk show host Mark Levin took aim at The Washington Post’s George Will, who in his most recent column pointed out the lack of will to compromise in Washington, something he says both the tea party and President Barack Obama have in common.

That call for compromise according to Levin an effort to “rationalize soft tyranny” by Will, which is in direct conflict with the U.S. Constitution.

“I guess what I’m troubled by is I do not see a will to fight or even articulate a rational position by so many on the so-called right,” Levin said. “I view [George] Will’s column as trying to rationalize soft tyranny. That’s how I see it. I don’t know how much further we can go in the country toward centralized government. The government is now making decisions about our medical care. The government actually involved in virtually every aspect of our life in one way or another, to some degree or another. To talk about Madison’s document, the Constitution, as if we’re somehow still bound by it in many respects and in many respects we’re not, is to me absurd.”

“The individual is under attack,” he continued. “Private property rights are under attack. Capitalism generally is under attack. The Constitution is under attack, what’s left of it. These institutions are out of control in Washington. The fiscal situation — the federal fiscal situation is a complete and utter disaster and what’s going on is unconscionable. The monetary system is out of control trying to fund the fiscal system. We have politicians who are demanding more power. We have politicians who are demanding to spend more. I don’t see any governor on this. I don’t mean state governor, I mean governor like on a car. I don’t see any governor controlling this. And we’re told to tamp it down, to dial it back. Ladies and gentlemen, we don’t control anything. We don’t control the Supreme Court or the bureaucracy or the presidency.”
