Nobody's Opinion

Rush Limbaugh Will Ride the GOP Train into the Sunset

Nobody Cares

Since I was the one who attacked Glenn Beck this week, imagine my surprise to read, that I wasn’t the only one who was getting on his case. I said that many of Glenn Beck’s followers had left him, and I had NO idea how right I was: Check out this article that talks about just how far the Glenn Beck empire has fallen..Beck has lost millions and had to lay off hundreds of his own people.

But, I wanted to talk about another conservative talk show Guru: The great Rush Limbaugh.Rush Limbaugh two

Since I’m the political junkie that I am, I have been listening to Rush Limbaugh every day…for the last two or three months…(long time listener) and here’s what everybody needs to remember about Rush:

When Donald Trump was leading in the polls, Rush Limbaugh spent a good two hours of his program talking mostly about Trump. How he thought outside the box, he was nothing that Washington had ever seen before…etc., etc, anybody listening to Rush would assume that Rush was supporting Trump.

And then…Cruz won in Iowa. What did Rush do? He jumped on the Cruz bandwagon. A lot of Trump fans (like me) wondered what had happened. Even today, I heard Rush say that Cruz cheating in Iowa was very typical of elections and we should all stop being babies and move on.

Never mind that when Ben CARSON was going up in the polls, Rush was all full of praise for the man, and it was Ben that was really hurt by Cruz’s deception so for Rush to dismiss it was rather insulting.

It was…and is…downright hypocritical. Especially for a man who is promoting the Founders with his children’s book. Most all of the founders would have cried “FRAUD!”

AND THEN…all of a sudden…Rush was on the Rubio train…trying to assure his listeners that Rubio was NOT an establishment conservative. No, no..no…he just made a mistake with immigration…just ignore that ‘mistake’…Nobody’s Perfect, he said.

So what IS Rush doing? He’s all over the map. Whoever is the hot potato at the moment, Rush is there to sing his praises. Here’s what this Nobody Thinks it’s all about:

ONE: Ratings. Rush has not stayed number one by picking winners and losers like Glen Beck. Beck picked Cruz, attacked Trump with every breathe, and lost millions of dollars.

AND TWO: Whoever gets the nomination, whether it’s Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Jeb, or Christie, you can be assured that Rush Limbaugh will be right in front of the pack saying that if you…the listeners of Rush Limbaugh do NOT go to vote for the Republican, then we will get Hillary, and the country will be destroyed and it will be YOU..YOU…YOU that destroyed it.

Yes YOU. Not Rush.  Paul Ryan is already repeating that message.

Rush had used this shame tactic for decades to make millions like me, hold our noses and go an vote for Dole, McCain, Romney, and yes, Bush twice.  Because we’ve been let down so much, there are now in the country more Independents than Republican OR Democrats.  Rush HATES Independents.

This time, it’s not going to work. Last time, Rush swore Mitt Romney lost because the base stayed home. And they stayed home in Rush’s opinion because they are morons.

It matters not that the system is broken, what matters to Rush Limbaugh, is that it continues.Rush Limbaugh

The Republican Party, must survive. Even if it’s just a mirror of the Democrats. To many in America, Rush Limbaugh IS the head of the Republican Party. His whole show is based on this mantle.

Rush Limbaugh KNOWS how to survive. The rest of us…well…we’re expendable. And Americans are getting fed up with people that we admire, telling us how to think, act, and vote, and if we don’t we are morons.

It’s our country too. None of these political radio hosts or pundits have to LIVE here. They all live in gated community bubbles.  They don’t have to decide between their medications and food.

This is not the America that Rush Limbaugh grew up in. BOTH parties have taking America down the path of destruction.

Someday, even Rush Limbaugh, will have to recognize that reality. In the meantime, he is being very careful not to insult any of the candidates and he will excuse most all of their felonies, and dirty tricks, because to RUSH..What matters to Rush is the survival of the Republican Party, which to him, is America.

And that party left the people a LOOOOOOG time ago. The Bush’s GOP/DEM Globalization left the train station, and left America lying in the dust bowl of long forgotten tracks to prosperity.

Somebody ought to tell him. We all stand waiting….for the next train….that is nowhere in sight. All we hear are the crickets chirping.

All we see…is the setting sun…with a lone voice telling us…

AMERICA IS GREAT…it’s YOU that missed the train.

Right. And WHEN will the next one get here? We’re listening Rush….

Nobody Remembers—” A Defense of the Constitution”

Nobody Remembers

In honor of the Anniversary of the Constitution, I thought a few words from John Adams would be an appropriate mark for the day: (Of course…no favoritism here. (haha) John adams two

Not many people know that John Adams wrote the FIRST and oldest Constitution in the United States. He wrote the Massachusetts Constitution, which pre-dated the United States’ Constitution, which upon, believe it or not,  our three branches of government: judicial, legislative, and executive were based.

While he was overseas during the making of the Constitution, he wrote a long dissertation called “A Defense of the Constitution” and “Thoughts on Government” and sent all members of Congress copies, upon which they all had read before the convention. Like his stance on slavery, which he received very little credit, and being the only member of the founding fathers who had no slaves on principle, John Adams also got little credit for his work in the construction of our own Constitution.

If not for the great American historian, David McCullough, not many people would even know about the many things John Adams did to help found the country, and that’s including writing the pre-cursor of the original document that we all know and hail and the most perfect governmental document ever produced in the history of mankind.

Here’s a few thoughts that I picked out from …

 A Defense of the Constitution: By John Adams

where the great and rich will have the greatest influence in the public councils, they will continually make unequal laws in their own favor, unless the poorer majority unite, which they rarely do, set up an opposition to them, and run them down by making unequal laws against them. In every society where property exists, there will ever be a struggle between rich and poor. Mixed in one assembly, equal law can never be expected. They will either be made by numbers to plunder the few who are rich, or by influence to fleece the may who are poor. Both rich and poor, then, must be made independent, that equal justice may be done, and equal liberty enjoyed by all.

The passions and appetites are parts of human nature, as well as reason and the moral sense. In the institution of government, it must be remembered that, although reason ought always to govern individuals, it certainly never did since the Fall, and never will, till the Millennium: and human nature must be taken as it is, as it has been, and will be.Obama burns constitution

The passions and desired of the majority of the representatives in an assembly being in their nature insatiable and unlimited by anything within their own breast, and having nothing to control them without, will crave more and more indulgence, and, as they have the power, they will have the gratification: and Nedham’s government will have no security of continuing free, —

There is no man so blind as not to see, that to talk of founding a government upon a supposition that nations and great bodies of men, left to themselves, will practice a course of self denial, is either to babble like a new-born infant or to deceive like an unprincipled impostor.

And last but not least…a word about the “press”…and a warming from Adams: who had studied history more than perhaps any of the founders:John adams one

The press, that great barrier and bulwark of the rights of mankind, when it is protected in its freedom by law, can now no longer be free: if the authors, writers, and printers, will not accept of the hire that will be offered them, they must submit to the ruin that will be denounced against them. The presses, with much secrecy and concealment, will be made the vehicles of calumny against the minority and, of panegyric and empirical applauses of the leaders of the majority, and no remedy can possibly be obtained. In one word, the whole system of affairs, and every conceivable motive of hope and fear, will be employed to promote the private interests of a few, and their obsequious majority: and there is no remedy but in arms. Accordingly we find in all the Italian republics, the minority always were driven to arms in despair.

Compare these thoughts to the men from “Harvard” of today…and speaking of Harvard, John’s grandson, Henry Adams, tells you all you need to know about “Harvard” in his book…

“The Education of Henry Adams.”

It’s one of the reasons I don’t always abide by “Harvard” standards.

Now, let’s see what politician even mentions the Constitution today…shall we?

I’m guessing Ted Cruz. Let’s see if I win.
