(CNSNews.com) - Mark Levin says that President Barack Obama and the contemporary Democratic Party have become “fanatical Utopians” who recognize no limits on government spending, taxation or regulation.

Levin made the observation in an interview with CNSNews.com about his new book, “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America.

“The name of the book is ‘Ameritopia’ because I believe we live today not in the American republic, founded by our forefathers, we live in an Ameritopia,” Levin told CNSNews.com.

“Look around in your house,” said Levin. “You can’t even decide what light bulb to put in your house or showerhead or toilet. Open your medicine cabinet. Everything in there is regulated. Look at your electronics. Every single electronic device you have has some government stamp of approval. Washing machines, dryers, toasters, the gypsum board that is used to build your home, the roofing tile that is on your house, whether you can actually build a house on a particular piece of property that you own, all of this is regulated and managed by government.”

“Is this a constitutional republic?” asked Levin. “What is it? It’s an Ameritopia.”

“The problem with Ameritopia, or any Utopia, is that it doesn’t end well--unless the people do something about it, because there is no end to it,” said Levin.

“The fanatics-- which is what Obama and the Democratic Party have become, fanatical utopians--there is no end to what they want to do,” he said. “There is no end to the spending, the taxes and the regulating.

“How do we know when we’ve reached this fantasy?” he said. “How do we know that we achieved whatever it is we are supposed to achieve? Where are the designs? Where is this written? There are no designs and it isn’t written. The one thing we know for sure is that the circle of liberty for the individual gets tighter and tighter and tighter and tighter.”
