I think Rush's sentence ..."we will cease to exist as the United States the day that happens, and mark my word. It ain't going to happen." ... is much stronger.

Rush had an excellent rant on this. Man, I'm glad he's on our side. He was right on about everything! He nailed the liberals for exactly what they are, and by golly no one could have said it better!

I share your gratitude and to whom and why...

I also want to add that Rush's specific comments as to those Dean remarks, are excellent. It is encouraging to read that Dean is so easily observed as bordering on "insane" to others.

It's actually really sad to my view that Howard Dean is the head of the DNC. I mean, they might just as well have named Vicente Fox or someone similar.

The libs are learning that the world has changed, oh and it is such a hard lesson for them to learn. It is now a LEVEL playing field. They were propped up by three liberal white guys who gave the nation the news for decades on the alphabet channels. NO MORE! Ever again!
Now they must stand on their own. And they CANT! They are losing again and again now. They have no idea what is wrong. They dont see it. They dont understand it. They are trying all the old tricks and they are not working anymore.
They are out of ideas, they are out gunned, and they are running out of time. They will never go unchallenged again. We are in their face everywhere they try to spread their liberal garbage now. Most are emotional wrecks, it takes little challenge to their ideas to leave them spitting venom and namcalling, turning desperately to conspiricy theorys to prop up the warped reality they have constructed for themselves.

They want to fight? Well its going to be a fair fight this time.

Come get some.

Its just getting started. I am enjoying every minute watching them meltdown. I waited decades for this.
Bush's re-election has driven them mad. It seems as if every liberal is Captain Ahab chasing the white whale Bush. And we all know how that ended. It's not Bush. Its they themselves that is the source of all their woes.


"All that most maddens and torments; all that stirs up the lees of things; all
truth with malice in it; all that cracks the sinews and cakes the brain; all
the subtle demonisms of life and thought; all evil, to crazy Ahab, were
visibly personified, and made practically assailable in Moby Dick. He piled
upon the whale's white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by
his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he
burst his hot heart's shell upon it."

LOL. It was hysterical! It was the best election in American history! They literally freaked when they heard the election outcome!!

This is supposed to be a big victory to cheer about?

All I saw in that transcript was Rush putting words in the caller's mouth and generalizing about him/her because she happened to have valid questions about the war.

If this war is supposedly so valid, why do facts about the war have to be proven with generalizations?

The facts have been out since the war started, bozo. Try to keep up, will you?

What's with you trolls tonight? Are you trying to save the Casey Funderally? Has your party over Casey's dead body gotten too boring for the press these days? Are you just looking for something to kill time until your government checks come in?

My daughters boyfriend just went in the middle of last month. My daughter saw a ship hit on FOX today by Islamofacist, and she was furious at them. She was so proud of her man. He's one of the guys protecting us from those killers.

Geez, I never get to listen to Rush live, but when I read transcripts like this, I'm like, what is this guy's IQ? 2 bazillion?? But it also takes perception, interpretation and other talents. He is just so spot on every time it's amazing. I agree, he's a gift.

I just watched this. Rush was pi$$ed, and rightly so.

Rush puts so much into words that I can't, but he gives me ideas to fight for my beliefs. Whether you love him or hate him, he is a man that can speak his mind and stir an audience.

Giga-dittos Rush!

Rush will never have to worry about Revelation 3:15-16 "...I would thou wert cold or hot." Rush has much to teach us all, and he truly does have ... talent on loan from God.

Well, actually I don't belong to MoveOn. I don't like Michael Moore; I think he's a big mouth and I don't agree with him on the issues. I vote Democrat and I'm proud of it, but I don't think that Bush is Hitler or Satan or aything extreme like that.

I am sorry that the political spectrums have become so divided , and that's the truth. I wish that Democrats and Republicans could learn to find some common ground and get along together.

I'm not here to make enemies. You and I disagree on the issues - strongly, in some cases - but I don't hate you or anyone else here. You're a person who has just as much of a right to his/her ideas as I do. I'd rather get to know you and discuss these issues in a friendly manner than to argue. That's the truth also.

I wish that Republicans and Democrats could find some common ground and stop calling the other side evil. Both parties tend to trump their own ideas over the other side's - that's human nature. Unfortunately, political discourse and friendly discussion have been the casualties of this nature, which I believe is the fault of both Democrats and Republicans.

I probably shouldn't have come onto this forum. On that point, we probably agree. But I'm here now, so all of that's academic. If I do get cut from this forum, just remember that if your assertion that most (or all) liberals aren't interested in ideas different than their own, I'm the exception. I welcome everyone's comments, criticisms, and even insults, if you feel the need to post them.

The liberals created political correctness in an attempt to save the world from itself, but political correctness has done more harm to the world than any war in history. Forcing people, through laws, to think contrary to their conscience creates hate. Hate creates violence. Violence creates war.
That's why we are where we are today.

Only liberal communist pinkos try to suppress thought with the "You can't use generalizations" speech. Generalizations are either two ways. They will hit the nail right on the head or they miss their mark entirely. In this case, they correctly apply. The logic of Rush's generalizations pegs you so hard, you can stand it. The truth is still ringing in the void between your ears. They only response you have is to parrot the liberal mantra on positions you can't argue.

Well, I don't think that we are where we are today solely because of liberals.

But I'm no friend of political correctness either. I'd rather someon be called 'fat' than some BS term like 'weight challenged'.

Thanks for your comments anyway, concerned about politics.

Rush Limbaugh is a passionate patriot and a brilliant, powerful speaker certainly unique in this country since its founding.

And he "gets it." He really gets it.

The only sad thing is that the people who need most to listen to Rush never do.

Avant_garde, may I ask you one question: what have I done to you? Honestly.

You might say, "well, because you're a liberal, you're responsible for everything bad going on in this country". But I've only been in this world 21 years and five months. I've been "politically aware" only about five. Therefore, I couldn't be held directly accountable for things like 'Roe v. Wade'.

I haven't insulted you. I could have been like some liberals who might post on this site, simply insulting you all without backing themselves up with fact. They, like Michael Moore, only give the rest of us a bad name.

If I am wrong about the issues I am discussing, I will correct myself and move onwards.

Let's put it this way. Look at the biggest issues to your party right now.
You lefties have to learn to see past your genitals and self gratification and start thinking long term. Will a policy build up the people and the nation, or will the policy put the citizens into a state of moral and governmental decay that can never be repaired?

You might say, "well, because you're a liberal, you're responsible for everything bad going on in this country". But I've only been in this world 21 years and five months.

If you're not liberal by the time your 21, something is psychically wrong with you. If your not conservative after that, something is mentally wrong with you.
Once you grow up, start paying taxes, and have a few children of your own, things will change for the better for you.
If not, you failed life 101. You'll become a social parasite sitting around the TV watching CNN and waiting for your government check to arrive. You'll remain a democrat voter forever. You'll have to, or you'll not get your share of the government cheese.
