Posted on 06/06/2012 6:58:54 AM PDT by BO Stinkss
In an election year when voters are fed up with liberalism and socialism -- and when the fate of the country as founded is at stake -- you vote for the most conservative Republican in the primary. Period. -- Rush Limbaugh defining "The Limbaugh Rule" on September 14, 2010 As this is written, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker -- a conservative under direct challenge by the hard core American Left -- has won his recall fight. Big time. The Limbaugh Rule triumphs. Enough said.

Well, it's time, ladies and gentlemen, for the Limbaugh Rule to supplant and replace the Buckley Rule, because the Buckley Rule requires clairvoyance."
Who is right? Buckley or Rush?
Last night proves the Limbaugh Rule rules...
Vote your heart in the primary; vote your head in the general election.
Obama or Romney, one or the other, will be the next President of the United States, unless one of them dies, or withdraws, or something.
Sitting it out, voting third party, etc. will probably get Obama elected. Nobody wants to vote for the lesser of two evils. As some of the posters around here have said, it’s still voting for evil. But what if there is no good option to vote for, which is the situation that we find ourselfves in?
I don’t know about anybody else; I can’t find fault with those who just can’t do it. But I’m holding my nose and swinging on the elephant’s tail come November.
May God be with us all as we decide this November.
Voting for a pro-abortion cult leader is not God’s will in any definition of the word.
The Buckley Rule might be worth something to Conservatives - if Buckley had been a Conservative.
Neither. If the Limbaugh rule was correct, why didn’t Sharron Angle win, or Christine O’Donell?
Both Angle and O’Donnell were running in deep blue states, as was Walker. But they had little or no record of fiscal accomplishments to run on like Walker...........
It is ok point out the faults of the sanctimonious who allow zealous pride to overshadow pragmatic reality. The primary objective is to defeat Obama.
To conjure up some vain irrational and prideful reason for not voting for Romney or voting some worthless third party joke is to make one’s self harmful and totally irrelevant.
Is that old windbag still on the air?
You are welcome to your opinion.
What I said is cold hard fact, not “opinion.” Buckley was out on the “Frontline” of the battle and fighting virtually alone in the media world.
This is where you and I differ..
The primary goal is to defeat socialism..
How does voting for a socialist accomplish this goal?
How does not casting my ballot for someone who stands for everything I am against, and against everything I stand for, make me sanctimonious, or filled with zealous pride?
Those of us who state our case are ridiculed, called names and addressed as infants, etc.
Please, in your own words, tell me what part of romneys past political decisions you support.
I wish we could just go all out for Romney with warm feelings and a stout heart.
But, if we can’t, I hope we can stop pointing out his perceived negatives and helping Obama.
I just put David Limbaugh’s new book on hold at the library.
If you’ve forgotten 9/10 of the horrors of Obama, you might want to read it. It will remind you.
I remember Crossfire. I remember the elegance of the debate. No interruptions, no goofy stuff. Liberals would come to a mike and debate Buckley. He would sit there, all smiling and supreme and totally decimate their every argument.
You aren’t voting for Romney; you are voting against Obama.
God only expects us to do what He gives us the opportunity to do. We no longer have an option to vote for a pro-life, Christian presidential candidate, so we go for the lesser evil.
The Jehovah’s Witnesses do not vote because they don’t think God wants them to be so much a part of the world, that they are putting country above God.
But I believe that though we are not “of the world”, we are definitely “in” it, and must do the best we can.
But as I said, previously. I can’t find fault with those who think differently about this. I’m not even sure that I’m right, and may change my mind before I cast my vote.
this is the way I’m thinking now.
Believe what you will.
But try not to confuse glib verbiage with meaning.
Buckley advocated a highly centralized Federal Government and knowingly endorsed the bureaucracy that it entailed.
About sums it up nicely.
