‘The Left Never Gives Up’ Mark Levin at the Reagan Library

By Debra Tash

The tickets to Mark Levin’s August 16th, lecture and dinner sold out in 11 minutes.

The syndicated talk show host spoke to a packed house that was all his last night.  Levin isn’t a formal speaker.  The evening started out with a short interview. Levin’s latest book, Plunder and Deceit  debuted as a New York Times 1# bestseller.  He signed thousands of copies earlier in the day.

He targeted his latest work to those under 40, who typically vote liberal and are for big government.  Levin pointed out that the schools and the current media don’t educate those in what is typically called the “Millennial” generation. He tasked the parents and grandparents to educate themselves then their children.  He quoted the late President Ronald Reagan, saying, “Change begins at the dinner table.”

The author asked why aren’t our children, those children of American citizens, not called, “Dreamers.”  With H 1B Visas, and high skilled foreign workers given jobs Americans have gone into debt preparing themselves for.  This leaves many of our young people trained in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) without work.  The next generation will also have to deal with 200 trillion in unfunded Federal liabilities.  Levin wants Millennials, a term he doesn’t care for, to understand–Big Government is their enemy.

He feels the left never gives up, but our side gives up after three weeks.

Many of the Progressive policies being pushed, such as a hike in the minimum wage, are particularly destructive to the next generation.  They won’t be getting that first job because they are priced out of the labor market.

Environmentalism is a “De-growth” movement similar to what’s been going on in western Europe. It’s against development and for redistribution of wealth, and will make energy less accessible and too costly.

Conservatives have to oppose Central government in the New Media.  Control the size of government – cutting taxes is just not enough.

After the 15 minute interview of Levin the floor was open for questions from the audience.  This is something that many speakers avoid with canned questions asked by the moderator at the end of their speech.

Many audience members were frustrated with the establishment Republicans.  One questioner proposed an exodus, a mass migration of the base from Republican registration to independent.

Levin countered that he understands that the current Republican leadership can’t lead.  But he doesn’t want to cede the party to the establishment.  “I don’t want to send a message.  I want to beat the bastards.”  Then he apologized for swearing, but not for wanting to beat the ‘bastards’.

His conclusion for what the country needs, a conservative candidate.   Maybe 2016 will give the Millennials the first chance they’ve had to vote for one.
