We Are Living in
a Dying Country

Rushlimbaugh.com, by Rush Limbaugh

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/5/2013 4:53:10 PM

RUSH: Folks, I don´t know how else to categorize this. We are living in a dying country. I don´t know how else to categorize what´s happening -- 88,000 new jobs. The unemployment rate, because of a terrible statistic, is down to 7.6%. The number of people in this country who are not working is shameful. Ninety million Americans are no longer in the workforce. Ninety million. People not in the labor force grew by 663,000, and now 90 million. That´s the labor force participation rate. This is 1979 levels.

...and you and Bill O`Reilly are looking out for us...right?
I remember not so long ago that you said more than once "I let you know when to start worrying" well that warning never come, and a lot of things got out of control and couldn`t be fixed. When voices with any influence, should have been screaming on the rooftops about Obama and a slew of other pure evil people on the left, we got nothing! I never did have to much faith in "man" but I truly believe that you and a lot of other so-called conservative voices (forget the RINO`s I know they will not speak up for anyone) could have, and could be. doing a better job of looking out for America and care less about losing your precious job!!. You both are RICH, and you will never have to worry about how you are going to make it you have already made it...a lot of good decent American`s will never have that chance.

Socialism is a cancer that kills. We became a socialist country under FDR, but it really started with the 16th amendment, which is a primary tenant of Marx´s communist manifesto. We´ve been growing this tumor for a long time, but now we are a nation in hospice. Obama´s re-election was the beginning of the end-stage.

Careful #1, your bitterness is showing.
We the people are responsible...not a radio talk show host.
Rush did his job and kept the public informed. Unfortunately, Rush´s wish that Obama would fail did not come true.
Obama has succeeded. We are transformed.
To find our way back means a long and painful process teaching the next generation what it means to take care of oneself.
...that or the Second Coming.
Either way, this regime will have its reckoning.

I can appreciate #1´s underlying fear, but what is Rush supposed to do other than what he´s already doing? Rush is a godsend, especially during these difficult times. Rush hasn´t quit; he hasn´t thrown in the towel.

I believe Rush was warning us what an Obama administration would look like if he was re-elected. You can´t convince those who do not want to hear. The country has become a nation of people with their fingers in their ears saying, la la la la la la. The jury is out on whether or not they will wake up in time or even if it´s already too late. It worries me that Rush is goes negative because he has always been the eternal optimist. However, there comes a time when reality slaps you in the face and you can´t deny the truth. Like most of you, I don´t want to think the United States would ever be in such a decline that we could not pull out of it. Sadly, now I believe it would take divine intervention to turn this around.

Sorry #1... that class warfare ("they´re RICH") dodge won´t fly here. And putting Rush and "Ted Baxter" in the same category is enough to raise the warning flag of "seminar poster" suspicion. (Not accusing... just noting.)

IMHO, this particular lament by Rush was NOT melancholic, end-of-the-week blues... but a green-eyeshaded, economic/demographic audit.

(Winston Churchill´s timeless admonishment notwithstanding).

Labor participation is down to 1979 - Jimmy Carter levels to give you this fictitious 7.6%. Record numbers are on food stamps, below poverty lines, on disability.
Thirty years of prosperity created by Republicans has been blown by this man in three years. Yet the RINO ridden Republicans are so hapless that all they can do is sit down to split the difference with evil.
I have worked hard, obeyed the laws, paid taxes and raised sons who are now in harm´s way for their country. Yes, my bitterness is showing.

I don´t think many sincere battles for the country´s future are fought from outside our geographical borders, #11. When Limbaugh speaks of "leaving", he clearly means leaving the battlefield. It´s ok. The rest of us don´t need him.

The staff comment under the headline quoted Churchill. A couple more things Churchill said could have been added.

We need leaders who will call on Americans to "...take our stand for liberty as in olden times," as Churchill told a hooting Commons after Munich.

And, "We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender," after Dunkirk.

Mostly our so called conservative leaders are ready to go along and get reelected.

Funny, isn´t it, that the all-seeing all-knowing MahaRushee kept Romney at arm´s length and therefore many of his listeners wouldn´t give Romney their full support, either. Now, what. He doesn´t like what´s happened to our country?

#7, respectfully, Rush is not the problem and you´ve got your info wrong.

It´s New Zealand he talks about, not Puerto Rico. Mostly, Rush is the lone voice on the right who has persevered, done an exceptional job of keeping people informed, thinking outside the box, and may be the single person with a huge audience who teaches daily. Glen Beck is doing a good job, too, but he´s far more pessimistic than Rush.

And, #1, Rush did say he´d tell us when to panic, yes. But if he actually does that, he will set off huge repercussions across the country, his influence is that great. He walks a fine legal line between entertainment and incitement or sedition. The FCC and the Left are still trying to shut him down. If they succeed, America will be the poorer for it.

We are living in a dying country. Unless we get some divine intervention or Democrats actually getting it right, we are done for.

WE are our own worst enemy. Rush is just reporting what is going on and trying to give his audience hope where there is precious little of it. Save the vitriol for our real enemies.

It is the combination of the 16th and 17th Amendments that we are paying for now. The 16th let the Feds tax ( instead of existing on trade tariffs). The 17th allowed for Senators to be elected not selected as the state´s ambassadors to DC.

Those two Amendments led to the Senators as Panderers and where we are today.(Lack of term limits didn´t help either.)

For years, Rush has said he is the most misunderstood man in America. This thread is proof of that. Not sure how to even respond to #1. Rush told everyone what would happen to this country if Zero was elected, which is where the "I hope he fails" comment originated. Rush is simply pointing out the state of our economy based on the latest economic numbers. You really need to listen to Rush instead of reading about him or repeating what the MSM tell you. I heard this segment on his show yesterday and, while it was depressing, it was an exact description of the current economic situation.

I greatly appreciated the fact that Rush did not hop on the Romney bandwagon early on. That he gave time to other candidates. That he consistently urged the GOP to choose the most Conservative candidate, not the one who appeared to be the most electable - because Rush knew that the most Conservative candidate would be the most electable.

He was right.

Rush is truly a "Great American", as Sean Hannity likes to say to his guests. Rush and Sean have both tried to inform those who will listen, that Obama is destroying America as we know it; and that was O´s intent all along (really the intent of his puppet- masters).

Rush has had some bouts with the "powers that be" over the Fairness Doctrine. He knows how far he can push the envelope. Those who want to criticize Rush, should ask themselves - which would you rather have: a cautious Rush still on the air, or a silenced Rush and not on the air?

As far as O´Reilly is concerned, I can´t figure him out. I used to like him, but since 2008 and Obama came to power O´Reilly has become "squishy". I don´t think he´s the force that he thinks he is. He´s also very disrespectful to his guests and won´t let them get their thoughts out without overtalking them. Sean does that, too, and it drives me nuts.

I believe the current decline began in 2003, when the overwhelming force of the worldwide Left in collusion with the MSM managed to turn world opinion against the US and in favor of a terrorist regime - Saddam Hussein´s. This wildly successful campaign so weakened the US will to defend itself, that much of the nation began wondering if its values (which the world now hated and blindly equated with Abu Ghraib) were worth defending. Hence, the election of the anti-American Obama, whose implicit, stealth promise to the electorate was to finish the job and bring the warmongering, trigger-happy nation all the way down, as it deserved.

While I often listen to Rush and find him to be both an incisive conservative thinker and a great entertainer, I´m finding it increasingly difficult to listen to him. He´s becoming a defeatist. His pessimism is not something I want to listen to for any length of time.

And really, where are our new uplifting leaders? Our next Reagan? We need a new generation of leaders who will reaffirm the greatness of our founding principles and inspire us, not merely share our despair.

I´m no longer interested in complainers and compromisers. I want our new champion to emerge and lead us back to retaking this country.

No, Rush Limbaugh is not a "Statesman and Patriot". He is neither. He is an articulate and informed entertainer who really enjoys the power he is able to exert over way too many of his fans.

As for listening to him, I´ve been there, done that and moved on.

I´ve listened to Rush religiously for 20 plus years and I heard this segment yesterday. As usual, Rush is right.

The only issue I´ve ever had with Rush is that he, like Hannity, Ingraham et al refused to ever delve into zippy´s eligibility issues. I can´t help thinking that if all of talk radio pursued it, we might have been able to do something about it. Remember that Drudge and talk radio eventually forced the Lewinsky issue to the front of the news despite the LSM trying its best to cover it up. The only conclusion I can draw is that they were all threatened in some way.

It isn’t the sixteenth amendment, or the seventeenth, that set our country on the road to ruin, it is the establishment of a federal department of education and the formation of educational unions both of which allowed socialist propaganda to be systematically sown in our schools.

The production of a cohort of useful idiots in America has enabled Akexis de Toqueville’s prediction to come true; when the people realize that they can vote themselves money from the treasury, the American experiment in democracy will fail.

The low information voters of today are that cohort of ill-educated voters that the Left has produced by means of government schools, run by the Democrats, designed to produce a pliable and obedient voting block which will respond with Pavlovian predictability to the Left’s agenda.

These people re-elected the worst president in the history of the Republic, and they aren’t going away.

Obama and the anti American left are a consequence of too many good people doing nothing over time while evil never rests. What we call the left targeted education and began their efforts to control American schools at every level decades ago. And they were quite open about their intentions. Now we are reaping the results: media that is nothing more than a propaganda mill for the left; millions of functional illiterates who have no idea - or a wholly distorted idea - of the history and traditions of their nation; and "elites" bent on destroying the very foundations of the culture that gave them the freedom to succeed.

The warning to take Rush´s prediction and advice at one´s peril is truly rich, coming as it does from the most relentless Romney cheerleader at this site this time last year.

From time to time Rush does mention New Zealand, not PR (which is part of the US, by the way.) The Kiwis are worth studying. They were stagnating when they adopted some free market style reforms. We always hear that such reforms will create a mean, dog eat dog society but New Zealand remains a genteel and now far more prosperous place.

It´s like the old saying goes, the answer lies not from without, but from within. And I mean that collectively as well as individually. It was only a matter of time before we reached the tipping point. The liberals planted the seeds of infection by taking over the educational apparatus in the 1950s and 1960s, as well as the media. They knew those were the ways to reach a people that was becoming, on the average, more dependent and intellectually lazy. They knew it would take generations, not just years, for the flower of destruction to bloom. We´ve raised two generations now of people who look to others both to blame and to help them. Those of us who were raised with conservative parents now see that our parents are gone and our numbers are dwindling. The cure will require a similar approach. It will be long and painful and may require a complete collapse before a restoration can begin. Listen with the ears of history. Already the storm winds whistle through the decaying branches. To undestand, look with open eyes upon the destruction of an entire racial minority made dependent on government handouts. See the chaos and utter contempt of morality and decency running rampant in the "flash mobs" on the streets of Chicago, while the media and those in authority look the other way or seek to blame others. See the utterly ruined landscape of modern Detroit to visualize the endgame of liberalism and government dependency. How far those formerly great places have fallen. A "dying country"? Hard to argue with that.

I have had my disagreements with Rush, but I have disagreements with other people as well. As for the complaint that Rush was not supportive of Mr. Romney; take a minute and consider all the implications of that statement as well as its obverse.

The LSM has tried for years to make Rush the official spokesman of the GOP inorder to further fracture the conservative coalition. Rush has always studiously avoided any comment of preference on any primary candidate in the GOP, as he should. As for the staff´s addition of Churchill to the home page, well done, but incomplete. The rest of the quote reads:

and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.

And there in lies our current problem. We have no new world to turn to if we fail here. Yes, Australia is nice, but disarmed. The old world has already gone all in socialist, including Mr. Churchill´s Great Britain. And yes, a select few of our bretheren may find refuge on some unknown south Pacific island, but life will not be as pleasant without the material comforts produced by the first world. No my friends, this is it. November of 2012 was our Rubicon, and either a majority of citizens embraces the comforts of subserviant slavery to the public teat, or there was massive vote fraud and our elected representatives had no stomach for the combat required.

I have written previously that we are living narrative of ´Atlas Shrugged´. I fear that we are now either Hank or Dagney,fight with all our energy to preserve a world that seems bent on destroying itself.

Long before Rush was known, back in 1984, Allan Bloom wrote The Closing of the American Mind. It´s a free download. Get it. Read it. In 1984 it was ignored but it was the last warning bell and it´s why we´re not coming back even though we´ll continue to fight; at least I know I will. It´s over kids but if you blame that on Rush, you really are ignorant. Read the above book. It´s not religious at all, however a nation sans God, yeah, the God of the Bible not the TV series, was given promises that don´t end well for that nation, especially a nation that started out like Solomon´s reign and went way south. That would be us.

Don´t blame Rush. Just take a look at your fellow citizens- those of the tattoo generation, the dancing with the stars people desperately wanting to worship their black American Idol, cool guy. No knowledge of history, economics or anything other than the latest trivia and any news they can snatch from their comedian of choice. It was their votes times two that has accelerated the change.

Judges 21:25 - In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

A cursory review of the ways which the United States has been led into insulting God after our Nation was founded on His Principles ought to tell you everything. Begin with how Washington treats Israel.

If it doesn´t ... time is short for you to figure it out.

Quoting W. A. Criswell,

"America is no longer a Christian nation. America has become a secular nation. By law, by legislation and by court decision, we bow at no altar and we call on the name of no god."

#38 that´s easy for you to say but re-set to what. The people who are causing us to fall apart know exactly how they want to re-set us . . . in fact causing us to fall apart and re-setting us has always been their plan. We need to stop, them before we fall apart and they get the chance to re-set us. Fortunately we have elections every two years and so we have a good chance of stopping them.

So, what will the end game look like for the regime? What will they have to hang their hats on, be proudest of? The Destruction of the Greatest Country in the History of the World. Think about that . What kind of Karma comes with that feat? Do you think the Universe will reward such negative intention?

I don´t.

And all those who have benefitted from the successes and LEGITIMATE hard work of American ingenuity will
now have very little because the successful are pulling in, no longer caring or trying to participate or sharing with those who just want to steal. IMHO, there is a rude awakening coming to those who militantly think they are entitled when there is nothing left about which to have a grievance. They are going to experience what real impoverishment is, sadly. Welcome to Africa, IMHO...However, there is one Ace in the Hole: our DNA! TRADITIONAL AMERICANS NEVER GIVE UP OR GIVE IN. We overcome. And we will.

Limbaugh is likely the most astute commentator on where America is. There is not a better analyst. However, Rush is mortal. He, like us, cannot see into the future. But he he does forecast better than most.

Rush is correct: we are living in a dying country. It has been a long road, beginning in earnest with FDR, but our own times, Rush´s time, has been the most disheartening to a Constitutional conservative. He has helped the socialist Democrats for years by refusing to call the enemy by name: Democrats. Instead he has always called them by euphamisms, his favorite being "liberals." Democrats mercilessly degrade and villify Republicans by name so as to clearly mark and destroy their enemy. Many conservatives, including Rush, Hannity, Levin will not self-identify as Republican. They have been defeated by Democrats. Also, remember back in the Clinton years when Rush promised to hold the class of ´94´s feet to the fire? Did he? No. He spent endless hours defending Mr. Speaker and his cadre of corrupt handmaidens. He promised to hold Bush´s feet to the fire. Did he? No. He spent endless hours defending one of the worst presidents of all time, turning a blind eye to that progressive wolf in sheep´s clothing. I don´t rely on any talk show host to guide me or help me save my country. Take care of yourselves and your familie´s. That´s all we can do in this rotten bourough of a country.

Presently, I derive a small amount of satisfaction by doing everything I can to NOT feed the beast: Minimize any activity (within reason, and within the law) that involves paying taxes. Do not pay one red cent toward liberal publications/entertainment. Cancel cable. Use businesses with conservative owners, or in conservative locales whenever possible.

#30 has the pithiest comment, IMHO. The fact that King Putt cannot pass E-verify and could not pass ANY kind of government background check is an amazing fact. Sealed records, millions to quash sunlight being brought to bear, and the absolute refusal of any Republican to take this seriously means we are very far along the path to serfdom. How sad for the once greatest nation now in third-world decline.

Think of how we allow the left to attack any new conservative voice, Michele Bachman, LTC Allen West, Sarah Palin and now, Dr. Ben Carson and we do not challenge it.
I kept waiting for the Silent Majority to show up last November, but no.
Too many have given up. I know how distasteful it has been to watch the news and every once in a while to peek behind the MSM´s curtain. But, we cannot give up.
We fail ourselves and our children when we give up - and what does that teach them?
Rush and BO´R are hardly equivalent!

#27--Thank you for voicing the one optimistic comment on this thread. I can´t bear the constant drumbeat of pessimism, although I confess that I, too, feel our country is on an inevitable decline at times.

We need modern Reagans: bright and optimistic conservatives. I have to believe that this country´s course can be altered.

All the left´s word twisting like double dip recession, going into a recession, recovery are all made up lies. We are entering a depression. Obama´s media just feeds us fake numbers to keep us quite.

I now know what despair people had in the all depressions not just the one in 1929.

Wall Street in no indication of the US economy moving along. It´s a carnival of hipsters playing and hoping to make money in a golbal economy. All of us, a majority, are not playing with the little money we have.

Yes we are a dying country when we don´t have to be. This country was bound and deterined to perform the ´black experiment´ and it couldn´t have chosen a worst one.
With Obama´s low IQ and his media this great nation has commited suicide for what reason I don´t know.

This is global and we are part of the global scene rather we like it or not but this great nation didn´t have to die.

An intense hatred for everything American by un-Americans is causing this nation to die.
These same America haters could have moved to what they percieved as a great nation, Cuba, but they chose to destroy this one.
The communist/socialist tumor just might be too big to remove by simple elections.

#9-that class warfare ("they´re RICH") dodge won´t fly here. And putting Rush and "Ted Baxter" in the same category is enough to raise the warning flag of "seminar poster" suspicion. (Not accusing... just noting.)

You must be new to this website to think that I`m a "seminar poster" I have been here for years!! since the Clinton 90`s and I ´listened´ to Rush for years-as for the Rich comment, he is! no class warfare just the truth. I am not stupid enough to think that Rush or Bill could "save" us from all evil, what I`m ´simply saying is, these two have made their living off and gotten quite rich off of letting us think they are looking out for us, Yes, they both love America and both are good men I`m sure, I just don`t put much truck in what they say anymore..one thing I do know its their jobs to perform to keep their fame and money, and they will do what is necessary to keep that.

Responding to a number of commenters, including #51:

Gallup ran a poll in December 2012, just 3+ months ago, and found that 77% of Americans identify themselves as Christian. See here:

http://www.gallup.com/poll/159548/identify-christian.aspx

Now, some may quibble about details of doctrine, but it would do us all well to remember that the woman who touched Jesus´ robe in Mark 5 had only faith. If you say you are a Christian, and mean it in your heart, by God´s grace you are. And THAT makes America a Christian nation.

America is not dying. Oh, some are desperately trying to murder her. But America is still here. Waiting. They went too far too fast before and inadvertently gave birth to the Tea Party. That scared the whoopee out of them. What will they inadvertently cause us to do next?

Some have given up, and I will admit to being close to that point myself, but another factor is that there just aren´t as many of us left anymore. I was raised by very conservative parents (Dad was a WWII vet, Mom worked all her life as well as being Mom) and they are long gone. I don´t have too many years left myself (60-something). Look at the generations that have followed us. Entertainment nation, tattoo generation, government instead of family. The country is going where the (majority of the) people take it. Right now, if you ask the average 20-40 voter on the street where the solution to the country´s problems lies, I´ll bet you most of them will say "the government". If you ask them who is "looking out for them" (to coin a phrase), they´ll likely say "the government". Most of what they look towards as providing their needs, it is likely "the government". The answers to questions like these gives you a pretty good idea of why we´re heading where we are today.

I second #6. I spent a year in Austria 1969-1970 trying to answer that question. I didn´t then. I do know now. The only, and unfortunately I do mean ONLY way out of chaos is with a dictator. Obozo has brought us into chaos, and G-d help us when we see what this will bring. Tyranny from the right, or from the left. But to the lo-info idiots, they will be happy as long as they have their free obamaphone up to the time they are expected to make the supreme sacrifice for the state.

I´m seriously hoping for the rapture.

Apparently, He can no longer lead this government, but if you let Him, He can lead you personally in the same manner. Let Him.

Read II Chronicles 7:14, and then be one of the people who can bring this country back.

Yes, we are a dying country. The evidence is all around you. It´s just that so many just look but do not see.

I have posted numerous times here that I firmly believe that the only cure for this once great country is another revolution. In that way, we could correct the problems that the original founders could not foresee. Sadly, I´m coming to believe that there simply is not enough people in this country that would rise up and join a revolution. Far too many are too occupied with their own daily lives and who is the next idol, who´s dancing with whom, etc. that the ability to take time to reason and see where the country is headed is being lost. How many people can you count that take the time to read a book? Or have a discussion about current events that doesn´t end up in a shouting match? I don´t think the founders ever thought that Americans would come to what they have become.

Rush: "You are being stabbed and backstabbed to death, over and over. You are bleeding to death. You need a real surgeon now. You need to stop the incompetent doctors from bleeding you, as well as stabbing you. You also need the disinfectant of truth, and God´s healing power. You need help from alies and friends and praer partners. You need to tell them clearly what the problem is. Speak it plain and clearly. You need to arrest or impeach the criminal doctors who are stabbing you and backstabbing you. They need to be held accountable for attempted murder immediately, so they will stop killing you. Do you understand? You are bleeding to death. You are near death."

Years ago I read Stephen King´s "Dark Tower" series of novels - 7 volumes and more than 4,000 pages. I´ve been thinking about that story lately because it takes place in a primitive world that has "moved on". It´s a world filled with rusted out obsolete machinery, empty cities and evil people who have no memory of what the machinery was for or who populated the cities. Sometimes I can´t help thinking that our world is about to "move on".

America is a dying country because freedom-loving people are being overwhelmed by lofo´s promised everything by Machiavellian politicians in return for their vote. This is exactly what Juan Peron did in Argentina. Then, after 8 years of corrupt rule, this fascist dictator was forced to flee to Uruguay. Argentina is still a mess both politically and economically. America is rapidly sinking to its level.

I was recently in a tour of the eastern sea board and NYC. Those folks will starve inside of three months when the USA goes insolvent in 2016.

BTW, the Soviets went insolvent in 1991 and we all laughted during the Russian hard times of 1992 to 1996. Now our turn starts in 2016 to 2020.

I have seen how the eastern sea board of north Virginia to New England live. Those folks have no chance of surviving the coming economic firestorm. They have no resources.

Rush is just chronicling our societal problems. When someone does not work, he does not pay taxes. Mitt Romney explained this very clearly but was rejected by the Moocher Nation (with help from unopposed voter fraud).

88,000 jobs in one month and 82,000 Moochers go on permanent disability. Now we have 8.800,000 people on disability. Please note that at age 65 they transition effortlessly into Social Security payments. Moochers also get Foodstamps, free Obamaphones, meals for their schoolchildren and much more. They watch Netflicks all day long.

So it is not that Rush is a pessimist. The Left-wing extremist Hussein has been the reparations president that ruined this wonderful country. A black cloud cover the Land. No point in fighting amongst ourselves. Better to shame the Democrat coalition of special interests into realizing what they have become. Ideas are very powerful.

The GOP has some wonderful newcomers needing a bit more political experience before reaching for the presidency. Comebacks are possible: Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Harry Truman.

The constant in our material world is change, yet many are chagrined. Empires and nations rise, fall and sometimes rise again transformed and not for the better eg. Egypt, Rome, China, Hapsburg Spain, Great Britain, Russia, among others. Their longevity was never preordained; rather it was a function of their decisions. We ´appear´ to be changing and for the worse but we shall see. Regardless, it´s of our own making, as societies get the governance they deserve and tolerate. The inference that ´our downfall´ started w/Obama is beyond preposterous. Far too many remain in perpetual thrall to the GOP, as the ´good guys´. In fact they are every bit as culpable as the D´s but far to many just won´t abide that cold reality.

I´m the same as you, #68....In my 60´s, Vietnam Vet, Catholic upbringing, altar boy, choir boy, College on the GI Bill, AA, BA, MS, Deans Honor List..The teachers always asked us this question back in the late 70´s and early 80´s.."Is America on the decline"?..Today, I would say to them, "Yeah, thanks to you and your ilk!"...

THEY control the message! TV Commercials, tv programming, Hollywood movies, and of course the enemedia newspapers, news shows, talk shows, late-night crap...and Academia, brainwashing and hypnotizing the students with left-wing Alinsky Marxist agenda,only hiring the lefties, the daily drumbeat of school and TV and the papers...how do we counter that? Again, THEY control the message, they mock and ridicule us, I´m made fun of repeatedly by them because I am white, religious, own guns, and am a traditional family, non-abortion, non-illegal alien, patriotic, NASCAR-loving, Hockey-loving,GTO-driving, V-Twin riding, conservative. I am still active, still vital, but what´s dying all around us is those freedoms and liberties the founding fathers bestowed upon this great nation, again, thanks to the Alinsky-taught Low information voters and their army of far-lefties who now seem to outnumber us....Do we need more Caucasian procreation to counter the minority explosion? Is it a matter of numbers? Or are the white kids and grandkids being hoodwinked into the leftist movement too? Mine arent..are yours?

You are a rare breed that is becoming rarer. And, sadly, you and those like you (myself included) are the only ones in the country who can legally be discriminated against, insulted, laughed at, have our feelings "hurt", be offended with nothing done about it, hated, marginalized, made to feel worthless, and all other manner of injury and insult. Yet we are the ones who built the country, defended it, played by the rules, raised our kids, stood by our wives and husbands, took care of our parents, paid our taxes, and shed our blood, sweat, and tears in the long, bloody fight to preserve it all. Now comes along generations of takers who feel they are owed what they have, and if they don´t have what they want, they feel entitled to take it from someone else who they think has what is theirs. That is the real killer of our country and civilization. We have a citizenry who feels that everyone owes them something, and will use "the government" as the means to get it.

#84, I wholeheartedly agree. Sitting around in a pity-party circle, wringing hands and looking for those to blame is not an activity I either enjoy or will participate in. Nothing will be improved, much less fixed, unless we, the citizens, put out the effort. If it must start locally, then we can do it locally, then in states and finally in Washington. For those who insist there is no hope, all efforts are futile, I might let you ride in my wagon while you observe. For a little while.

It´s no pity-party",these men and women are looking for CAUSES, for ANSWERS as to why Rush says we are living in a dying country. Read responses from #´s 25, 36, 63, 67, 86 and 87 again and reconsider your attack, it doesnt sound like a very cordial thing to say...No pity party here, we are strong men and women, proud of what we´ve built and disgusted and somewhat shaken by what Obama and his ilk have done to the USA. Dont you get that? Stop with the name-calling and accusations, they dont help...we all are INVOLVED, not just you, so lay off the heavy pats on your own back and try to listen to those on here wiser than you, and that includes the truly wise man Rush! And a big thank you to Lucianne and staff for being here, providing this wonderful salon where we can agree or amicably disagree on hot-topic issues like this one! You folks rock!

Yes, there are things we can do. Begin at the LOCAL level because THE MEDIA at the LOCAL level is still relatively untarnished. Our message can be heard there. DO IT!
The national media decided to forsake objective journalism in order to represent the voices of "those whose voices are not heard". With the advent of 24/7 news, however, the hourly regurgitation of minority opinion became distorted and began to sound like the majority. Lofos happily accept whatever they´re told, especially repeatedly.
Rush has been 100% right about the MSM all along. THEY are the problem. But WHY don´t any of our conservative voices propose that we BOYCOTT the MSM? I don´t get this! No ratings, no sponsors. No sponsors, no business. No business: the MSM is toast. Problem solved. WE have power, but we don´t seem to be able to take action. WHY is that?

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Republican pundit Charles Krauthammer said that when Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy a week before the 2012 presidential election, he was essentially giving Obama a lap dance. “I think many Republicans are extremely upset with what was described in the press as giving Obama a bear hug,” Krauthammer said on Sunday in a debate with Obama strategist David Plouffe, according to Politico. “I saw it slightly differently, I thought it was more of like a lap dance. Not a phrase I would use on television, since the image is too disturbing.” Krauthammer did use

In a way it´s the oddest bit of ObamaCare propaganda we´ve seen so far. "This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered. This is what momentum looks like." To McGuinness´s credit, she does mean "literally" literally. The post

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Benghazi: Before the administration told the world the false narrative of the attack on our compound, the CIA´s station chief in Libya pointedly told his superiors in Washington that no spontaneous demonstration occurred. We didn´t need any more proof that the president of the United States, Barack Obama, his secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, and his United Nations ambassador, Susan Rice, repeatedly and deliberately lied to the American people.

Islamofascism: With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc. ´Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016," said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who´s Who of Brotherhood front groups. "We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community."

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

It´s our lust for cheeseburgers that´s dooming the planet through climate change, the Obama administration said in a Climate Action Plan released Friday that seeks to save us all from ruminant livestock.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated.

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina.
