I have been listening to Rush Limbaugh for over 20 years and he is now driving me crazy. His unrelenting negativity re: the Supreme Court fiasco is just crazy. We need him to help us defeat and destroy the Left. We already know what a corrupt court and congress we have. How do we go about winning, Rush? Don't tell us what we already know and then tell us your 'scared.'

Rush told you months ago that he’d tell you when it was time to be afraid.

I think we just got the “bulletin.”

It is not so much that he may be driving you crazy but rather he is showing how the tag team of the government and the press are in total control. Crazy not, frightened yes!

So Rush being upbeat is going to convince Obamabots to vote against Obama?

The fact is, "fundamental change" has pooped itself onto our front porches.

What we need now is truth, not bullhockey.

The Court deserves the negativity Rush is giving it and More because it did not do it’s job. People need to know that 5 justices abdicated their constitutional role. The Court is the Last resort and if Roberts can be influenced to change his vote by the liberal media then he needs to resign.

As for what we do, Rush is shouting from the housetops that we must turn out to vote straight R up and down ticket no matter what. I know if I am alive, I’ll be voting. Nothing will keep me away; not fever, famine-nothing. Somebody better be scared IMO.

Agree. Have yet to hear one single strategy or approach other than "education" to roll this back. Well, latest Gallup says only 6% of the respondents had "health care" as their top priority. So how's "education" workin' out?

I think there are a dozen ways to overcome and defeat this, but all of them at some point require that OUR politicians do stuff that is unpopular or which will be portrayed by the media as cruel or heartless. And all of my solutions would require incredible stick-to-it-iveness.

Yeah, I know that the Constitution just really got trampled on...but, Rush is more interested in venting than in laying out a good battle plan to win in November.

I do hope he grows out of it.

It’s Mitch McConnell who should be driving ALL of us up a wall. Instead of coming out fiery and vowing to repeal this monstrosity, he comes out tired and beaten and says the task will be almost impossible.

Then resign your position, Mitch, and let someone with more fire power lead the charge if you are so incapable.

Exactly.

Then again, I have been unable to listen to him for years. Still, there is a reason I bought my small farm in central KY two weeks before Obama was elected and left a very good paying job in Seattle with T-Mobile corporate to move to the farm in August of last year. I think this year will be when the world of hurt we are headed for will be pretty obvious to everyone, and it may even happen this year. If not, look to 2013.

We (western civilization) are like the man who jumped off a 100 story building and we are now at the third floor. And the MSM and the rest of our “handlers” are shouting to us from an open window, “so far, so good!”.

Seriously. And remember, even talking remotely like I did above as little as a year ago was considered moonbat thinking by pretty much everyone. No longer.

Something can be learned from that.

Battle Plan is simple -

Vote Straight R top down and get everyone you know to do the same.

Anyone staying home and giving Obama a second term to complete his intentional collapse of this country deserves every miserable thing we have coming to us. Romney was not my first pick - BUT OBAMA HAS TO GO!!!!

You need to listen more carefully. The beginnings of a strategy are being laid out, but its not run out and vote for someone.

For starters get yourself and your friends to nonstop push hard for your State to refuse to set up an exchange.

Obama is trying to drive us into armed revolution, so he can confiscate all firearms.

Rush is right.

The Obamacare decision is a disaster, and Obamacare itself is a disaster.

Arguing “tax” vs. “penalty” is a distraction.

Discussing Robert’s mindset, or trying to find a “silver lining”, is a distraction.

The one and only thing to do now is to communicate to our fellow Americans that Obamacare is a disaster, it is the law of the land, and the one and only way to repeal it is to elect GOP majorities to both houses of Congress AND elect Mitt Romney President.

Again, Rush is right. Exactly right.

It is the FR He-Man Mitt Haters Club who are wrong, and they are among the target audience of Rush’s message today.

If you don’t see the most damaging Supreme Court ruling in two generations to be of sufficient urgency to be the topic of attention for this week, I suspect that you might find NPR’s programming more to your liking!

Rush is usually a perpetual optimist. The fact that he isn’t in this case is very telling, and telegraphing the grave nature of this situation. For the first time in our lives we are staring face-to-face into the death of America, due to Obamacare and this SC ruling.

I think Rush is realizing that we are down to a single chance to reverse this. There are no checks and balances, and only the whim of the voters 4 months from now will determine whether we go over the edge.

There is only one battle plan now: decisive landslide for the Republicans, that will be the mandate to force them to repeal this. I’m concerned that a close victory for Romney will not send him enough of a message that we are serious, and that this better get done immediately.

With a close election, he and the congress may feel it is too much to go against the desires of the few who are currently benefiting from this bill. That it would be too harsh, and maybe we could just soften it a little. Blah blah blah.

Rush knows that he can’t make people vote, and he has to pray that they feel as angry about it as we do. There are so many people out there that don’t see anything wrong with Obamacare, because it doesn’t affect their daily lives.

I am already talking to my New Zealand office, just in case Obama does win.

Yeah because we now have the prospect of Roberts being a leftist on the court and if ghettobama wins and gets two more pics - ITS GAME OVER.

Not to mention the fiscal disaster we are facing at the hands of these radicals.

It is up to us to convince our families, friends, and neighbors that Obamacare is wrecking the economy.

This is what Rush is saying and he is right.

How do we go about winning, Rush?

Rush, like many people, still believe we have a representative republic in which the control of our nation's leadership can be made peacefully at the ballot box.

I no longer share that opinion. I believe that our only options are for the conservative states to either secede or engage in civil war, the sequel. IMO, our government is irreparably broken, the system is fraught with corruption and changing the faces in Congress or the WH doesn't change the corrupt system they have created.

These are things Rush can't say. His attacks on the SCOTUS are justified. The justices are selected on the basis of political orientation with Roe v. Wade being the benchmark. And, yet, they are supposed to be apolitical and rule strictly on a given law's applicability to established law and the Constitution. Rush, by going after the SCOTUS, is, essentially, shining a light on a fire. Before the ZeroCare ruling, we liked to pretend that the court's decisions were not predicated on political affiliation, but on the rule of law. Given the twists, turns and convolutions that CJ Roberts took to arrive at the majority opinion, there is no longer any pretense that the SCOTUS pays any attention to either established law or applicability to the Constitution, but to political affiliation.

The "whats" and "whys" of Roberts' actions have yet to be revealed and may NEVER be revealed. For now, it is what it is and we have to deal with it.

However, no matter how you slice it, our system is in serious trouble, America is dying before our eyes and our complacency will let it happen.

Dennis Miller was just talking about optimism this morning. He’s not very optimistic at this point either. I haven’t been for a long time. I did have great hope the court would do the right thing—the conservative ones at least. I had no idea Roberts would pull this stunt, but a FReeper’s post the night before the ruling about how Rush “knew” something about Roberts or what he was going to do and couldn’t say got me concerned.

What we need to do is sign a petition for a Constitutional Amendment that forbids mandates against commercial inaction, and a secondary clause which prohibits taxes/fines/levies for same.

Rush needs to push this. We need to push this. mitt needs to back it or lose the election. If mitt backs this Amendment, I will back him.

Let it be known that the biggest mitt hater on the planet, Sirius Lee, will back him if mitt denounces his Frankenstein mandate and backs the Anti-Mandate Amendment.

Anybody who backs mitt and yet claims to be a Conservative will agree to this.

Regrettably, I'm coming to the same conclusion. Even if (GOD help us) we manage to boot the big Zero out in November, the fact that the electorate in this country is even capable of electing such a monster bodes ill for the future of the Republic.

That’s the thing. It was to the gross majority of people. If you hang around the right circles, it still is. I’ve experienced it as recently as, well, this morning.

The denial is amazing. Americans are generations removed from war on our soil as well as any war with a serious death toll.

The concept of just how bad it can get is simply beyond their grasp. I ask them to watch “the Pianist” and imagine that is the US and it is not so much about Jews, as about people during wartime with a ruthless enemy. It brings perspective.

And yes, it can happen and, statistically speaking, WILL happen eventually.

I just got around to viewing the George Carlin segment again. I remember it from a few years ago. He did a good job of skewering the powers to be. It is a shame that he is gone. He was one of the last of a breed for ‘telling it like it is’ comedians. Today’s brand of comedy pales in comparison.

What else has Rush done to counter obama except talk?
How about showing up at a Tea Party rally? How about sponsoring fund raisers like Dan's bake sale years ago? How about running for office?
If obama is (as you said) the "#1 threat to Western Civilization" - it's time Rush got off his @ss and walked the walk.

Yes, it is depressing to listen to Rush go on and on about the Roberts ruling, but then there are just way too many people who are out there trying to put a smiley face on this court ruling. I am so upset about it that I am losing sleep.

Do you realize that what Rush has said about a two tier system of health care is absolutely true, but that it won’t be one system for the middle and lower class and another for the rich. The system will be one for the union members and government workers and one for the rest of us poor schlubs.

I think that Republicans should focus on eliminating all Obama waivers for unions and states. If union members, both public and private were not exempted from Obamacare and were threatened with the same rationing as the rest of us, we would have a fighting chance of over turning this and throwing Obama out of office.

How could anyone who loves America be positive about the death of America?

Our side is SO STUPID that it doesn’t even realize in the slightest way what has happened.

How do we go about winning?

We don’t.

The damage done to the constitution via this decision cannot be repaired.

Winning the election in Novemeber will not undo what has been done.

Here is an idea, and it is just an idea. I did this over 2 years ago, and it has helped me to regain my very own views and thought process...

Shut off the AM radio... just as rush used to say about listening to the news, well, shut off the republican propoganda..

Tune to your favorite FM Music station...

Allow your mind to drift a little...and just relax...

It will take about 2 months for your withdrawals to be complete, but you will get through it..

Now, engage your brain, and start thinking for yourself, instead of letting the blabbermouths on AM radio do your thinking for you..

You are going to find the world is a very stimulating place to be, with beauty abounding..

Your IQ will also increase about 35 points when you get used to thinking for yourself again.

WARNING: ONCE YOU ENGAGE YOUR BRAIN AGAIN, YOU WILL ALSO BE FORCED TO OPEN YOUR EYES... and you just might not like what you see... once you see what the republicans really are, you can never go back...

Also, once you see WHO the republicans really are, you will become disgusted with yourself for having bought into it in the first place..

Good Luck
