Hannity now in his brand new book just out today America tropea -- making of America the great one -- -- then explains that.
All throughout history tyranny has originated from the dream of a utopian society that can never exist.
-- -- argues that Americans are traditionally independent and explains how the battle between centralized government and individual freedom is being played out.
More than ever right here in American society.
Now joining me to discuss is brand new book the GOP race.
And much more the man himself -- -- syndicated radio talk show host.
But I don't on the great white America how are a great one thing I still quite as so why try to get -- -- -- quite annoying yeah I did.
But look better look -- little send them.
I haven't had power this is an inside your iPod trying to get you -- your bunker right.
The years congratulations Kerry had -- up -- -- I got up and you're impossible they get out and get on -- I like being in the bunker -- like being home what's so.
About the -- -- -- no but it's what we've been given your fans love to see you.
I had to start a petition on your radio show what I was against that and I think that -- audience the calling -- out of there.
First -- what what what are we get your thoughts before we get into this book this is this book I will argue is going to be a classic that one day.
We'll look at this and make it a foundation of that -- getting gone from where that -- got a long time from now hopefully.
When you look at this race.
See what's happening South Carolina we watched Iowa New Hampshire.
He saw the debate last night what is your take on the race and do you buy into this argument that's going to be really difficult to beat Obama.
Well a couple things.
You don't concern me about that the -- last night Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney stumbled a lot and he's been running for president since you know James Buchanan and at this point.
He should be able Lance of these things like this about his income taxes about -- about any of it.
So he's not.
The inevitable anything that the Republican establishment tell us he has.
And the fact is if he turns out to be the nominee I'm gonna support him but there -- other conservatives in this race -- I think deserve.
A first look I lot of people let alone a second look Newt Gingrich had a hell of a debate Santorum had a hell of a debate Perry was cut I thought to.
I thought thought Perry had his best debate showing up to date -- you know it's sad because I think it if you would come out of the -- -- plenty of time.
You know look at let me just be clear about this we have in many states proportional delegate selection what's Romney and a twelve delegates proportional distribution the distribution some states -- Florida's lost half of its delegates because it jumped the line.
We have what -- after Florida Nevada or something and then we have a month break I don't know why we have to decide this in Florida who says I shouldn't.
Well we don't have to decided I mean.
Look at the history of this no modern day person non for a non incumbent has won Iowa New Hampshire we might get different results I want -- -- -- And in -- if he would win South Carolina we don't know what's gonna happen in South Carolina.
That would know that you're gonna win the presidency without -- -- on all means but nothing I guess the only place and it.
When you and I -- by six votes or eight votes.
But Gerald Ford won Iowa anyone New Hampshire and the lost the presidency why does any of this matter what I tell you what you want this -- -- listened to the book.
Without getting into all the details right now you actually make the case in this book that we live in a post constitutional.
-- have a whole chapter on that what does that mean.
It means that much of what the federal government does is not authorized by the constitution now.
-- you say that you get political responses like only wanna do away with this you wanna do live that I'm not talking about that I'm saying much of what goes on the -- -- -- I'd like to do away with most of it.
Much of what goes on in the federal government has no constitutional basis whatsoever.
In this was part of a scheme.
Real scheme hatched by a number of the leftists about a century ago.
And you know them Woodrow Wilson Woodrow Wilson -- make any bones about his contempt for the declaration and individualism and that's what this is an attack on the individual.
He made no bones about his contempt for the constitution Woodrow Wilson said in a speech before it became president.
That the that the governments like a body you can't have one organ working against the other in other words you can't have separation of powers.
So he spent his presidency as -- subsequent Democrats.
Trying to evade the constitution -- rewrite it FDR course did the same thing FDR tactic constitution.
And -- son Steve who now works for Obama he made the point that we now live under FDR's constitution -- -- -- that means.
He powerful centralized government exactly what the framers of the constitution rejected.
He said he talked about the some title and -- -- making of America you end.
The book with this question so much fellow countrymen what are you choose America -- -- or America.
As America at that close of a crossroads that the America.
That we grow up knowing loving cherishing the one that that talked about the individual freedom and responsibility is it's is likely gone.
-- -- -- The states have so limited power and yet when we were -- it was the other way around.
We're not a represented republic really in the truest sense anymore we have this massive administrative state with you know hundreds of thousands -- not.
Several million bureaucrats who are who are making laws and issuing them every day 80000 pages last year.
So that's not a represented a republic so what are we what are we we are a nation that has heavy centralized power.
It's getting more centralized by the day.
Every so called reform.
Is -- to require more government more bureaucracy more taxation in -- a lot.
You quo -- quote Reagan you know the freedoms but just one generation away from extinction equal Benjamin Franklin Benjamin Franklin.
After the constitutional convention was wrapping up actually predicted.
We would that this experiment would it what -- he said there.
And I -- American people will follow this constitution for time.
But then then I'm paraphrasing that they'll determine whether they -- -- live free -- they want to live in the despotism.
I won't won't come you did something and I thank football place you want the football player yes thank you why we did something really -- -- something really.
Interest in the way you set this -- coupled and explain it to everybody when we get back we'll have more your thoughts on the election.
