Limbaugh: 'Looks like doom, unavoidable doom'
WND ^ | June 26, 2013 | Joe Kovacs

Posted on 06/27/2013 10:14:35 AM PDT by Perseverando

PALM BEACH, Fla. – In the wake of a string of recent advances for Barack Obama’s left-leaning agenda, radio’s Rush Limbaugh, the top-rated voice on the political right, admitted Wednesday there appears on the surface to be little hope in rescuing America.

“It all looks like doom, unavoidable doom,” Limbaugh lamented.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Defense of Marriage Act that defined marriage as the union between a man and woman to be unconstitutional.

But Limbaugh pointed out that was just one of a number of leftist initiatives moving ahead at full throttle.

“If amnesty happens,” he explained, “seven years from now this gonna be an entirely different country – politically, culturally, linguistically. It’d be different in six months if that happens. But that’s not isolated. Amnesty happens after Obamacare, and Obama’s efforts on climate change and so forth.”

“It looks like we’re headed to one-party rule!” he exclaimed.

“And there doesn’t seem to be any push back from the Republican Party. Push back is coming from the American people, a portion of them. If amnesty happens, that’s undeniable what that will bring. We’re talking about way too many people. We’re talking about a significant number of people who will be granted to vote sooner than 13 years. You know it and I know it.”

Rush, just read my tag line. Sorry to bust your bubble, but it’s been one party for a loooong time.

You have the Obama wing and the McCain/ Rubio wing.

Two power players on the same side. Us, people will get what they think we all should be living by. (It’s not we, the people, you see)

I quit listening to Rush after the election. Not because I believe he’s wrong or I don’t like him. I can just see the writing on the wall. Rush is fighting a losing battle and has been for a while now. Maybe he should hang up his spurs and enjoy retirement.

Rush's stated goal in broadcasting was to get everyone in the country to think like him. Rush, you need to reevaluate your methods, because they're clearly not working as intended.

I quit listening after the election, too. For the same reason.

I quit coming to FR for months after. I started coming back when it looked like Obama's troubles might lead to an American reawakening, but I have lost faith in that now.

Agreed. I stopped listening because I got tired of his false optimism that conservatives are pumped and primed to take back the country going into the 2008 2010 2012 2016 elections.

Selling optimism is hard and not natural for MOST people, but everyone LOVED and remembers the guy who sincerely manages to do that.

That is was MY Rush would say.

I'll always appreciate Rush for helping to awaken me politically in the early 90s. He did lead the brigade back towards Reaganism, at least as far as the changing culture and demographics would allow.

The presidency of Bush II, which was under the guise of conservatism, killed off any remaining hope or momentum. See Justice Roberts

I agree to a point. He could also go back to the biting satire and ridicule he was so good at in the beginning. Abortion updates with the sound of a vacuum cleaner - Slim Whitman's Paloma Blanca - A new IRS update theme using the Beatles Taxman, NSA updates using Secret Agent Man and etc. etc. One thing many fail to remember from Andrew Breitbart's brief but brilliant career was one of his axioms: "Politics is downstream from popular culture." The American pop culture is in such a spectacular ethics free fall that politics is almost invisible to the masses. JMHO.

I agree that we've passed the point where a return to Conservative ideals and traditional morality is impossible by working within the system. (we probably passed it way back in the early 1990's but just didn't realize it).

I'm not sure where it goes from here...

A civil war? Doesn't seem likely, the people on our side are growing old and such revolutions are usually started and fought by the young.

A Greece Situation? Seems more likely, especially with 40 million new illegals leaching off the system and the Obamacare boondoggle. Eventually there won't be enough working folks left to keep the titanic afloat and the political and economic system will collapse... But does that necessarily guarantee anything better will come after it or will it just hasten our decline into 3rd world status?

Look at the Republicrats who are supporting Amnesty and you will see Democrats who
have infiltrated the Republican party. They are slapping themselves on the

True...but it only took a small ‘dedicated’ group for Gideon to win...the numbers are that we don't have enough willing to see that only God raises up nations....they cannot fight this apart from Him..and He's showing this as so.

The hope will come in the reset that follows a Soviet-style collapse.

The Soviets managed to milk it for 70 years. Thus it ain’t happening in my lifetime.

Ditto that.

If any ever get a chance to try this Representative Republic style government again, they will have to be more specific about voting rights and the governments social engineering restrictions in their new Constitution.

We failed. We are Europe. Our best days are likely behind us. The American Dream is likely dead for the average American, our children and their children.

I am starting to look forward to the day when states start to secede from the union to form their own nations.

My guess on where it goes ?

A Collapse, within the next few years. One that will kill far more of the Useless Eaters than those of us who CAN stand on their own.

It’s going to purely suck, though, for a decade or more. . .

Gotta look at the whole of history. Why do you think the great ancient capital cities and empires around the world are mere archaeological digs and not still alive? They eventually became corrupt and God erased them.

Do you think that we ought to be an exception?

Our great grandchildren will begin to awaken to hope, if Jesus has not come before then.

Obama guard dog Rush, just like Obama guard dogs Glenn Beck and Fx News, can always start reconnecting their audience with the federal government’s constitutionally limited powers, such powers evidenced by the Constitution’s Section 8 of Article I, Article V and the 10th Amendment. But “conservatives” Rush and Beck have remained strangely silent about the federal government’s constitutonally limited powers.

It's humiliating (for him) to know that others had figured it out years before him. The best that Rush could do is pull an "Operation Chaos". It was a waste of time and political energy. Sure, it poked Hillary and Obama in the eye, but in the end it did nothing for the conservative cause except paint us as disruptive pranksters. Conservatism shouldn't be defined as disruption.

I suspect he’s got a schtick going on here...

IMO the schtick is how he overcomes the crushing feeling of defeat.

I stopped listening to him because he and the rest of his ilk failed to take a stand on social issues. For whatever reason, they didn’t understand that if you lose the social issues battle, you lose everything. People who are addicted to vice and bad behavior will never make good citizens. The will, however, make excellent lackeys for the central government and peons to be ruled.

Good choice! I knew a Catholic priest who had a Parish there in the ‘60’s. He loved it.

The Balearic Islands (Majorca and Minorca) might be good, too. But they’re Spanish and probably pretty socialist.

Best wishes!

By the mid to late 2010's watch the fully embolded dim left confiscate 401K's and IRA's to create a better funded and more "equitable" social security program for the nation.

Has Rush moved to his New Zealand plantation yet? See now I do NOT listen to him any longer after bloody Thursday during election of 2012. Rush is more into keeping his bank account flush and hanging with the liberal perverts than preservation of this nation.

Hey Rush you got NOTHING in standing given your proclamation that you only will hang out with the best of the Elton best. Have fun and quit your belly aching.
