Is Rush Limbaugh’s Country Gone?
New York Times, by Thomas B. Edsall

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/19/2012 2:22:01 PM

The morning after the re-election of President Obama, Rush Limbaugh told his listeners: I went to bed last night thinking we’re outnumbered. I went to bed last night thinking all this discussion we’d had about this election being the election that will tell us whether or not we’ve lost the country. I went to bed last night thinking we’ve lost the country. I don’t know how else you look at this. The conservative talk show host, who had been an upbeat, if initially doubtful, Romney supporter throughout the campaign, was on a post-election downer:

If we continue down this path it sure is. We cannot expect to survive when almost half of the country is living off the other half of the country. Margaret Thatcher was correct. The problem with socialism is you run out of other people´s money. The Democrats must be so proud of themselves that "young people hold a favorable view of socialism." Those communists in the teachers´ unions have done their job exquisitely.

Socialism in America leads to total societal breakdown-- inevitable when there are to many takers and fakers and too few constitutionalists left to carry the weight.

notice how communists try to ISOLATE..
they say "Rush Limbaugh´s" country..
NOT "America as AMERICANS" country..
they are talking about US..
NORMAL Americans..
but, as they use Bush, Rove or the Catholic Church, they try to direct their animosity of a general idea to something they pinpoint..
you´d think we´d learn..

On one of my dark days I answer this way:

I´m sorry, but the answer is "yes." America´s rise coincided with its industrialization. We are now fully developed, and have built everything we needed to build. Roads, bridges, buildings, houses, appliances, all of it. And we built it with American labor. Then we got greedy and lazy. Unions helped American workers demand money and benefits for their labor that far outstripped what their jobs were worth. There is a reason sneakers are made in China by somebody making a dollar a day. That´s all those jobs are worth. It was all those jobs were worth when they were filled by Americans making $20 an hour. And that´s why they are gone.

Mexicans pour over our border to pick our food and bus our tables and cut our grass for pocket change because we are no longer williing to do it ourselves for what it is really worth. All the big work is done. And since that was what America was built on, so is America.

There used to be a saying that if you wanted to know what your wife-to-be will look like when you are old, look at her mother. America - take a good look at England. Then go cash you unemployment check.

Assuming the figures from the writer are correct .... this is truly frightening.
Someone has to pay for all of the greedy with their noses in the trough. Govt workers don´t actually pay taxes on their income and contribute anything. They receive and don´t give.

Half the population seems to be getting and not giving. Who the hell is paying for all of this?????

I listen to Rush because he is entertaining, not for his political acumen. After all I´m not a mindless drone.

That´s why I´m stocking up on ammo, and food, because this country is a raging dumpster fire that is going to spread, quickly.

The lunatics have taken over the asylum, and it is too way late to save this Republic by working within the system.....Time to go Gault

Skip the article´s prose and go to the survey data. They are very illustrative. Our nation´s black and younger population are simply socialists. Hispanics are trending socialist, which speaks volumes about who it is the Dream Act and its clones are intended to solidify as voting, government dependent citizens. It seems the older illegals may have had more in common with traditional America that their children in that they came here to work; their offspring, not so much. All of our children are turning pink thanks to the educational cabal and the media´s cultural coup.

That so many young people walk around asking "What´s so bad about socialism?" and have a positive view of it is proof that conservatives have failed to explain what´s wrong with socialism and communism since the end of the Cold War, when it was taken for granted. If we can´t quickly explain why socialism is bad in a way that young people can understand, then we are doomed to lose the ideological battle on this.

IMHO the tipping point was reached on 11/06/12 and we will not be able to turn back to a Constitional Republic. The illegals will get citizenship and will vote with the Dems, both parties will continue trillion dollar deficits, the number of takers and free benefits will continue to escalate and no one or party in Congress will stop it. We will go off the cliff no matter what is negotiated this year. The taxes will increase the promised cuts will never happen and forecasted balanced budgets will never materialize and the msm will blame the Republicans no matter what happens. Just a wild guess.

If "Rush Limbaugh´s" country is gone, Mr. Edsall, then so is "your" country -- because when the producers leave, the victory-dancing parasites will quickly discover they have no one left to suck dry.

Then again, if the GOP recaptures the Senate (and holds the House) in 2014, will the NYT ask whether Rush Limbaugh´s country is back?

I listened to Rush today (as in everyday) and I don´t think the country is "gone", just due to the FACT that the socialists are irritated, annoyed, insulted just by calling them "Socialists". That has struck a nerve with them and they don´t like it. So maybe they have a soul and someday they will be able to search it and see what they are doing/taking from other U.S. Citizens.

This might be a long shot, and they have been able to shake the "liberal" label and change it to "Progressive" because it "sounds" nicer, but Socialist has an eerie bad karma that surrounds it. And they know it.

Now-a-days it seems like a badly worn cliche to say, "Ayn Rand was right!", but I will say it anyway. Ayn Rand was right! There are those who really do just want everything given to them with no effort required at all. And if they can get everything with no effort at all, why then, just give it to me. What´s the problem?

It is informative to read this article. It is also informative to read the comments after it. There are people who seem to be pretty intelligent in their comments but have their subjects exactly backwards. Substitute liberal for conservative and Obama with Romney and vice/versa where ever they are encountered and it will approximate the truth. Black is white and up is down.

This article is just about the epitome of what you would expect from the New York Times and its respondents. The exception is the hard data presented in the tables. That is likely to be fairly accurate.

The socialism that in the 1920s, ´30s and ´40s was spoken of in hushed tones became "chic" in the ´50s. In the ´60s, it gained traction with LBJ and hippie philosophy; in the 70s and ´80s it went somewhat dormant, especially when RR was president. Socialism gained respectability in the ´90s, with Clinton. A weak and capitulating GWB did nothing to turn things around and neither did the public educational system, underwritten as it was and is by Marxists.

I´m afraid now that capitalism is being taken apart like a clock by socialist swarms. If no one wants to work and everyone is told they don´t have to work, how to we avoid total social collapse? The answer is, we don´t. I´m just glad I´m older and won´t be around much longer.

It is only because WE, on the right, are too darn lazy to get off our couches and get personally involved in organizing people, educating people, and doing everything in our power to fight back and FIX this mess! Yes, we are too lazy, complacent, apathetic, etc... we expect someone ELSE to save us. Yeah, we started out with TEA parties and began to fight back but then we let it go and let others take over and finish it off...that led to the TPs losing their way and going way off message. They should have stuck with Fiscal Responsibility and upholding the Constitution. But no...they had to start talking about abortion and other irrelevant social issues that we won´t win until we regain power. And we won´t regain power if we keep talking about social issues!!

Either way, the point is that we are letting the left win. We are responsible for our own demise. We are lazy. We don´t want to risk anything. We don´t really care enough to act on it. Be honest. This is war and we are not really fighting back.

Typical liberal la la land thinking.

Unemployment among college graduates is over 25% so of course the fix for a glut of over educated brain dead hangers on is:

"The rising American electorate’s most important priority for the president and the Congress is “investing in education,”

to produce even more over educated but inemployable drone dem voters.

Because in Dem land the way to create high paying jobs in a market where there is a huge glut of overpriced workers is to add crushing taxes to the job creators in order to produce even more overpriced workers.

I think election fraud is the main problem. When you have places like Philly where 100 % go to their candidate it denies the voice of the whole state.Also places voting 150% of registered voter is pure election theft.I don´t hear none in the republican party complaining or fighting for the vote to be verified.They in their stupid minds think they would look like sore losers.intead they are dumb losers for not asserting our right to a clean election.

#32 is correct, but we don´t really have a leader that can coalesce the resistance. Maybe things have to get really bad.

I am doing my part for the resistance -- I have quit my high-paying job and will pay no taxes to this corrupt socialist federal government. I have been saving and investing for decades so I can do this. Its a small part, but its the best I can do on my own.

Rush´s theme song is "My City Was Gone"....

We now live in a post-Judeo Christian, post-Constitutional quasi-dictatorship.

It hasn´t been taken down yet, but we are crumbling within because of character flaws, lack of personal honor and integrity, and moral decay.

#39 cont - forgot to mention that the other part of my resistance is to go hyper-frugal. I just shut off my cell phone service (no, I don´t have an Obamaphone, so the mooches are living larger than I am). I will not go out to eat anytime I can eat at home, and I am keeping my 15 year old car until it falls apart.

Spending money into this economy is exactly what the liberals want us to do. If we all go hyper-frugal, we can help to bring the system down.

Looking at the numbers...

Bottom line if you have a system that produces only a few winners and a ton of losers, guess what is going to happen? Especially if it´s a game with a stacked deck. Notice the young people were pretty much evenly divided. I don´t think this makes them "more socialist", I think it means they are inexperienced. As they get older, and get thrown into one slot or the other, they´ll vote one way or the other.

Our system, IMO, has a root level issues that produce terrible outcomes from both a Republican and Dem point of view. On the one hand, you get * on by the powerful and fed Rush Limbaugh type lies & pablum that you still have a chance in that system (which is the ideal, but false), on the other you (the majority) get told you have no chance and thrown a few dollars to make your imprisonment a little easier to take. Woo Hoo. They are both depressing.

For those of you that are Catholic I say take a look at the Church. Those were dark days after Vatican II was completely hijacked and misinterpreted by the lefties in the Church. We thought, our Church is gone. Our Mass was changed, our schools were changed, our orders of nuns and brothers were fractured, priests taught (or looked the other way) on heresy and sin, altar girls became the crack in the door to allowing women into the priesthood, feminism ran rampant, etc. Today we see a swing in the opposition direction (albeit a slow one, much like an ocean liner turning). But it has turned and we did survive and our youth are better-educated and more involved. Is this majority of the Church? No, but it´s a start. We can beat the lefties back. Now, go pray and ask God for guidance.

#49 thanks for the reference -- that was an amazing talk. I´m not sure I´m on board for the space mission, but I learned a lot from the discussion. I still feel like my best course of action (which suits me best and which I can do on my own) is to stop feeding the beast by not earning anything and thus not paying any taxes. Also, living a super frugal lifestyle, which I already do now anyway. But now I will be motivated to resist temptation to spend frivolously by my determination to starve our economy of the excesses which the socialists need to oil their machine.

Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
