Is Rush Limbaugh’s Country Gone?
New York Times, by Thomas B. Edsall

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/19/2012 2:22:01 PM

The morning after the re-election of President Obama, Rush Limbaugh told his listeners: I went to bed last night thinking we’re outnumbered. I went to bed last night thinking all this discussion we’d had about this election being the election that will tell us whether or not we’ve lost the country. I went to bed last night thinking we’ve lost the country. I don’t know how else you look at this. The conservative talk show host, who had been an upbeat, if initially doubtful, Romney supporter throughout the campaign, was on a post-election downer:

If we continue down this path it sure is. We cannot expect to survive when almost half of the country is living off the other half of the country. Margaret Thatcher was correct. The problem with socialism is you run out of other people´s money. The Democrats must be so proud of themselves that "young people hold a favorable view of socialism." Those communists in the teachers´ unions have done their job exquisitely.

Socialism in America leads to total societal breakdown-- inevitable when there are to many takers and fakers and too few constitutionalists left to carry the weight.

notice how communists try to ISOLATE..
they say "Rush Limbaugh´s" country..
NOT "America as AMERICANS" country..
they are talking about US..
NORMAL Americans..
but, as they use Bush, Rove or the Catholic Church, they try to direct their animosity of a general idea to something they pinpoint..
you´d think we´d learn..

On one of my dark days I answer this way:

I´m sorry, but the answer is "yes." America´s rise coincided with its industrialization. We are now fully developed, and have built everything we needed to build. Roads, bridges, buildings, houses, appliances, all of it. And we built it with American labor. Then we got greedy and lazy. Unions helped American workers demand money and benefits for their labor that far outstripped what their jobs were worth. There is a reason sneakers are made in China by somebody making a dollar a day. That´s all those jobs are worth. It was all those jobs were worth when they were filled by Americans making $20 an hour. And that´s why they are gone.

Mexicans pour over our border to pick our food and bus our tables and cut our grass for pocket change because we are no longer williing to do it ourselves for what it is really worth. All the big work is done. And since that was what America was built on, so is America.

There used to be a saying that if you wanted to know what your wife-to-be will look like when you are old, look at her mother. America - take a good look at England. Then go cash you unemployment check.

Assuming the figures from the writer are correct .... this is truly frightening.
Someone has to pay for all of the greedy with their noses in the trough. Govt workers don´t actually pay taxes on their income and contribute anything. They receive and don´t give.

Half the population seems to be getting and not giving. Who the hell is paying for all of this?????

I listen to Rush because he is entertaining, not for his political acumen. After all I´m not a mindless drone.

That´s why I´m stocking up on ammo, and food, because this country is a raging dumpster fire that is going to spread, quickly.

The lunatics have taken over the asylum, and it is too way late to save this Republic by working within the system.....Time to go Gault

Skip the article´s prose and go to the survey data. They are very illustrative. Our nation´s black and younger population are simply socialists. Hispanics are trending socialist, which speaks volumes about who it is the Dream Act and its clones are intended to solidify as voting, government dependent citizens. It seems the older illegals may have had more in common with traditional America that their children in that they came here to work; their offspring, not so much. All of our children are turning pink thanks to the educational cabal and the media´s cultural coup.

That so many young people walk around asking "What´s so bad about socialism?" and have a positive view of it is proof that conservatives have failed to explain what´s wrong with socialism and communism since the end of the Cold War, when it was taken for granted. If we can´t quickly explain why socialism is bad in a way that young people can understand, then we are doomed to lose the ideological battle on this.

IMHO the tipping point was reached on 11/06/12 and we will not be able to turn back to a Constitional Republic. The illegals will get citizenship and will vote with the Dems, both parties will continue trillion dollar deficits, the number of takers and free benefits will continue to escalate and no one or party in Congress will stop it. We will go off the cliff no matter what is negotiated this year. The taxes will increase the promised cuts will never happen and forecasted balanced budgets will never materialize and the msm will blame the Republicans no matter what happens. Just a wild guess.

If "Rush Limbaugh´s" country is gone, Mr. Edsall, then so is "your" country -- because when the producers leave, the victory-dancing parasites will quickly discover they have no one left to suck dry.

Then again, if the GOP recaptures the Senate (and holds the House) in 2014, will the NYT ask whether Rush Limbaugh´s country is back?

I listened to Rush today (as in everyday) and I don´t think the country is "gone", just due to the FACT that the socialists are irritated, annoyed, insulted just by calling them "Socialists". That has struck a nerve with them and they don´t like it. So maybe they have a soul and someday they will be able to search it and see what they are doing/taking from other U.S. Citizens.

This might be a long shot, and they have been able to shake the "liberal" label and change it to "Progressive" because it "sounds" nicer, but Socialist has an eerie bad karma that surrounds it. And they know it.

Now-a-days it seems like a badly worn cliche to say, "Ayn Rand was right!", but I will say it anyway. Ayn Rand was right! There are those who really do just want everything given to them with no effort required at all. And if they can get everything with no effort at all, why then, just give it to me. What´s the problem?

It is informative to read this article. It is also informative to read the comments after it. There are people who seem to be pretty intelligent in their comments but have their subjects exactly backwards. Substitute liberal for conservative and Obama with Romney and vice/versa where ever they are encountered and it will approximate the truth. Black is white and up is down.

This article is just about the epitome of what you would expect from the New York Times and its respondents. The exception is the hard data presented in the tables. That is likely to be fairly accurate.

The socialism that in the 1920s, ´30s and ´40s was spoken of in hushed tones became "chic" in the ´50s. In the ´60s, it gained traction with LBJ and hippie philosophy; in the 70s and ´80s it went somewhat dormant, especially when RR was president. Socialism gained respectability in the ´90s, with Clinton. A weak and capitulating GWB did nothing to turn things around and neither did the public educational system, underwritten as it was and is by Marxists.

I´m afraid now that capitalism is being taken apart like a clock by socialist swarms. If no one wants to work and everyone is told they don´t have to work, how to we avoid total social collapse? The answer is, we don´t. I´m just glad I´m older and won´t be around much longer.

It is only because WE, on the right, are too darn lazy to get off our couches and get personally involved in organizing people, educating people, and doing everything in our power to fight back and FIX this mess! Yes, we are too lazy, complacent, apathetic, etc... we expect someone ELSE to save us. Yeah, we started out with TEA parties and began to fight back but then we let it go and let others take over and finish it off...that led to the TPs losing their way and going way off message. They should have stuck with Fiscal Responsibility and upholding the Constitution. But no...they had to start talking about abortion and other irrelevant social issues that we won´t win until we regain power. And we won´t regain power if we keep talking about social issues!!

Either way, the point is that we are letting the left win. We are responsible for our own demise. We are lazy. We don´t want to risk anything. We don´t really care enough to act on it. Be honest. This is war and we are not really fighting back.

Typical liberal la la land thinking.

Unemployment among college graduates is over 25% so of course the fix for a glut of over educated brain dead hangers on is:

"The rising American electorate’s most important priority for the president and the Congress is “investing in education,”

to produce even more over educated but inemployable drone dem voters.

Because in Dem land the way to create high paying jobs in a market where there is a huge glut of overpriced workers is to add crushing taxes to the job creators in order to produce even more overpriced workers.

I think election fraud is the main problem. When you have places like Philly where 100 % go to their candidate it denies the voice of the whole state.Also places voting 150% of registered voter is pure election theft.I don´t hear none in the republican party complaining or fighting for the vote to be verified.They in their stupid minds think they would look like sore losers.intead they are dumb losers for not asserting our right to a clean election.

#32 is correct, but we don´t really have a leader that can coalesce the resistance. Maybe things have to get really bad.

I am doing my part for the resistance -- I have quit my high-paying job and will pay no taxes to this corrupt socialist federal government. I have been saving and investing for decades so I can do this. Its a small part, but its the best I can do on my own.

Rush´s theme song is "My City Was Gone"....

We now live in a post-Judeo Christian, post-Constitutional quasi-dictatorship.

It hasn´t been taken down yet, but we are crumbling within because of character flaws, lack of personal honor and integrity, and moral decay.

#39 cont - forgot to mention that the other part of my resistance is to go hyper-frugal. I just shut off my cell phone service (no, I don´t have an Obamaphone, so the mooches are living larger than I am). I will not go out to eat anytime I can eat at home, and I am keeping my 15 year old car until it falls apart.

Spending money into this economy is exactly what the liberals want us to do. If we all go hyper-frugal, we can help to bring the system down.

Looking at the numbers...

Bottom line if you have a system that produces only a few winners and a ton of losers, guess what is going to happen? Especially if it´s a game with a stacked deck. Notice the young people were pretty much evenly divided. I don´t think this makes them "more socialist", I think it means they are inexperienced. As they get older, and get thrown into one slot or the other, they´ll vote one way or the other.

Our system, IMO, has a root level issues that produce terrible outcomes from both a Republican and Dem point of view. On the one hand, you get * on by the powerful and fed Rush Limbaugh type lies & pablum that you still have a chance in that system (which is the ideal, but false), on the other you (the majority) get told you have no chance and thrown a few dollars to make your imprisonment a little easier to take. Woo Hoo. They are both depressing.

For those of you that are Catholic I say take a look at the Church. Those were dark days after Vatican II was completely hijacked and misinterpreted by the lefties in the Church. We thought, our Church is gone. Our Mass was changed, our schools were changed, our orders of nuns and brothers were fractured, priests taught (or looked the other way) on heresy and sin, altar girls became the crack in the door to allowing women into the priesthood, feminism ran rampant, etc. Today we see a swing in the opposition direction (albeit a slow one, much like an ocean liner turning). But it has turned and we did survive and our youth are better-educated and more involved. Is this majority of the Church? No, but it´s a start. We can beat the lefties back. Now, go pray and ask God for guidance.

#49 thanks for the reference -- that was an amazing talk. I´m not sure I´m on board for the space mission, but I learned a lot from the discussion. I still feel like my best course of action (which suits me best and which I can do on my own) is to stop feeding the beast by not earning anything and thus not paying any taxes. Also, living a super frugal lifestyle, which I already do now anyway. But now I will be motivated to resist temptation to spend frivolously by my determination to starve our economy of the excesses which the socialists need to oil their machine.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left´s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists. In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the

RAW VIDEO: Sen. Jeff Sessions sits for interview with WSFA 12 News Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee and arguably the leading intellectual force against amnesty in Congress, is coming out hard against a proposal backed by Majority Leader Eric Cantor to grant amnesty to illegal alien DREAMers who enlist in the military. “We are now in a period of very large troop reductions. The last thing this nation should be doing is to provide those few slots to persons who illegally entered the United States or who overstayed their visas while denying young Americans the

It’s not every day that Bill O’Reilly accuses someone else of expressing “right-wing paranoia,” but that’s what happened Tuesday night when he faced off with Fox News contributor Monica Crowley over a proposed solution to the controversy over voter ID laws. O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
