1. The greatest threat to humanity lies in the nuclear arsenal of the USSR.

2. The greatest threat to humanity lies in the USSR.

So what he's saying here is, "The [nuclear arsenal of the USSR] lies in the USSR."

Was that entirely true? At the time Rush announced those "truths," were all Soviet nuclear weapons inside the borders of the USSR?

10. Communism Kills.

No, it doesn't. Abstract ideals can't hurt anyone any more than an inanimate firearm can. People kill people. Communists murder people, not "Communism." Karl Marx never hurt anyone. (I'm not defending his beliefs or claiming he was "misunderstood" by the Communists who followed him, just pointing out that he never killed anyone--and only those who carried out the murders or supportted the murderers are guilty).

18. I am not arrogant.


Of course, all three of these are very minor points, nit-picking really.

Your agruement...IMHO...would be like saying that Hitler houldn't be blamed for the Holocoust because he never personally killed a Jew at a Death Camp.

Don't mistake Rush's confidence for arrogance or cockiness.

Rush is confident because he stands behind what he says and time and evidence has born out most of what he has said to be true.

Kerry is arrogant. His lips are moving but there's no confience to his convictions, which change daily.

And if I remember correctly...even Karl Marx got his hands dirty in the Bolschlevik Revolution in 1917.
