Rush,

Let me start by saying that I am a young voter. I'm 21 years old, and registered independent. I believe in a little something called the constitution, and until the Republican party embraces that document, and the philosophies of our founding fathers, they will continue to lose power in Washington. The GOP is scratching it's head right now, in the wake of this election. They are pointing fingers, but not looking to the real leader of the party (in my opinion), Ron Paul.

Ron Paul appeals to thousands of young voters, a demographic that Republicans can't seem to get a grasp on. Look, I'm young, and I'm not some "leftist commie." I believe in civil liberties! I believe in a free market society! I believe in the rights of business to succeed, and also to fail! I believe in fiscal responsibility! I believe in personal responsibility! The government is not meant to run a welfare state, nurture the economy, or police the world. The government is responsible for providing sound money, upholding the constitution, and defending our country from threats- both foreign and domestic.

You people in the conservative media have failed to embrace Ron Paul, and you are making a big mistake. I look at this election, and it is apparent to me that the Republicans were never meant to win. They ran a corpse, and put no effort whatsoever into the campaign. I want to hear about the issues! Not the fake right/left paradigm issues that plague every political campaign, but the real issues that nobody wants to address. How are we going to pay back China? What happens if we cancel our debt? How are we going to combat the collapse of our dollar? How can we continue printing money out of nowhere? How much money are we spending to finance an empire?

Guess what, Rush, empires always collapse. Throughout history, time after time, these great civilizations implode upon themselves. We are the Romans. We need to return to the vision of this country that guided our founders. If we do not, we are in for a long and bumpy road ahead. People are actually embracing socialism now, because the Republican party failed to do it's job of upholding the Republic and the Constitution. Socialism can easily lead to Fascism, and if that ever happens I will be blaming people like you. People who have an obligation to inform the public. People who call themselves conservative, yet praised the neocon agenda of the past eight years. Start doing your job, and in four years we can really get this country back on track.

A job well done youngster, and I feel privileged to flag and star your efforts. To tell you the honest truth, if per chance your letter was read on Limbaugh's, Brain Fart Festival of Fools Show, No one listening would get it..... His audiences are so use to hearing lies, that the truth would come across as a foreign language..... Most of the people that I've known that listen to him are either to drunk or stupid to even find their own rectum, much less a voting booth, anyway.

I'm suprised Rush Limbaughs biggest fan, RRconservative, hasn't responded here yet. I'll be sure to U2U this to him. Great job onefinalmint I couldn't have said it better myself.

Although I suspect he will ignore your letter. Because on election day he was going on and on and on and on about the whole "Obama is going to bankrupt the coal industry". So I forwarded him a youtube video with a Republican saying the same thing about one of McCains plans.

Ron Paul is a no good lousy charlatan and the people who jumped on his bandwagon are FAR worse sheeple than the Obama ones. at least the Obama people are positive. Paul Sheeple are the most miserable bunch of chumps and have nothing progressive nor righteous to add to this country. Just a negative agent meant to weaken you. the stuff he says has some validity of course, but it's his job to go out and spew and scare and rant. no good lousy charlatan bum!

That was a very good, thoughtful letter. I don't listen to Rush; he bugs me. I am independent also, but lean to the right. I used to believe everything that was laid out before me by the mainstream media because I didn't know there was another way. What made me change was a strong desire to know what was real. What helped me get there was a person(?) I met years ago who "knew stuff". I didn't believe a word of it at the time, but as I looked into things and as the years rolled by, I saw he was on the right track about a lot of things. Another friend who worked at an agency would never speak about anything, but a couple times he confirmed things for me with his sarcasm. If I pressed for more...nothing. Anyway, my point is, I was LOOKING. People only see what they think they are seeing and sometimes the truth is too painful. There are topics I have not delved into after reading a few sentences because my brain can only take so much.

Also, many people are locked into being right. They won't put that aside to even consider another possibility. hopefully your letter will make him stop and consider. Star and flag

Sheeple. How clever of ewe to come up with that. I'd like for you to take a moment or two or three to think about this. .. Why, if Dr.Paul is a charlatan as you say, was he considered such a threat to TPTB and the very corrupt and rigged two party system. ..Why was he also ignored by the news media that are also tools of the same powerful interest?

Ron Paul gained a following for one reason, his opposition to the Iraq war. Nothing more nothing less. What better way to embarrass the Republican Party than to nominate an Anti-War candidate. Dozens and dozens (In my best Mick Foley impression) of people switched from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party to support him. Ron Paul was the King of the Internet, his dozens and dozens of supporters spammed every online poll and cryed when it had no effect of the "real" polls.

You called McCain a corpse but did you realize that Ron Paul is older than McCain? I support his Reprensentation of his district in Texas, but as far as a major leader in the Republican Party...No thanks.

Rush is all for tearing down the Republican Party and starting over with true Conservatives...Ron Paul not included...But young up and coming Conservative leaders like Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal, JC Watts, Mike Pence and others. Get rid of moderates like McCain, Olympia Snowe, Lindsey Grahamn, Chuck Hagel, Arlen Spector...I could go on and on.

I believe you have the right idea, but Ron Paul was an anti-war, internet wonder...nothing more, and will never be the go-to guy for the Republican Party.

Silly me and I thought people supported Ron Paul because he spoke truth to power. Voted against The Patriot Act, wants to throw out the FED because Congress is supposed to control the money. And he was generally right about things, like a few years ago he said Russia would be attacking Georgia.

Sure musta been that whole Iraq war thing. I thought major combat operations ended there? How come we had increase the amount of troops there. Cause more troops, especially 150,000,000 of them, means there are some sort of major combat operations going on right?

I agree is so far as I do believe that the Republican party needs to change and that change should be a run to embrace the constitution - a return to basics. The constitution unites Americans. Party politics divides.

I occasionally listen to Rush. I like him somewhat, but, unfortunately for him, he'll be off the radio in a few short months thanks to the fairness doctrine. Hope he has a plan B because I'll miss him otherwise. I feel like I've grown up with him. I've been listening to him since I was a sophmore in college, in 1993. I was at Dan's Bake Sale in Fort Collins, CO.

Instead of just bashing the guy, why dont you argue his policies?

Why dont you point something out in particular?

Interesting. Hard to make up some b.s. when his voting record speaks for itself.

Excuse me, but I thought "spreading/promoting democracy around the world" was the democrat platform, not the republican platform.

The neo-cons are nothing more than "liberal republicans". They hi-jacked the Republican party with bold face lies. And they got spanked this election for it. And they will continue to get spanked until they realize it.

The only candidate who drew any real support was Ron Paul. He made the media and PTB show their bias in plain view.

In this country, you can be in favor of giving away your power and control of the issues to either direction of an issue. But you sure as hell can not have the position it's not a job for the government to do. If you believe the government shouldn't be involved in something, you're "a crazy kook".

Combine the government the republicans want, with the government the democrats want, and you end up with a complete authoritarian government. All the while they sell themselves on the government you don't want, aka the lesser of 2 evils.

And that is the truth and the real bias here.

Star and flag! I loved that. I would love to hear Rush Limbaughs response and then laugh at how much I disagree with what he says in response.

I can just hear his response "You are wrong, I am right" "Your opinion differs from mine so you must be an evil liberal communist"

If he does respond you just watch, He will at least hint at you being a liberl, democrat or communist. Even though you specifically say you are an independent and are not liberal or communist.

Rush is so predictable (IMO) Typical mentality of My opinion is right and if you disagree than you are wrong and a liberal communist as well.

But to be perfectly fair, it is hard to find a person in the media who isnt biased one way or the other.

Thanks for the good read buddy. If he does respond let us know!

ya, god forbid the Republican party nominates a guy that speaks the truth.

God forbid the republican party nominates someone other than a neo-con.

God forbid they nominate a guy that has never one time in his congressional career voted to raise taxes.

God forbid the republican party respects the constitution.

Nooooo. that would be impossible. Ridiculous! Blasphemy!

That makes no sense what-so-ever.

The new Republican party likes liars with a evangelical extremist views.

God forbid the republican party learns to wisen up and get down to what real people want.

Truth and transparency.

Not lies and deceit.

Wake up republicans.

Rush needs schoolin on Conservatism. I mean REALLY!! To make such a comment and a LOUD BLOATED comment like he did concerning Powell's endorsement...*It's all Racial* deserves nothing more then handing him duct tape and a glass of Kool-it-Aide. He's an embarrassment along with Sean Hannity! I honestly believe they thought their over-bloated opinions and all the listener's they think they have... could have turned this election around. What they both failed to realize and what they both failed to do was to talk about the issues...instead they threw insult after insult. If anything they should be hanging their head in embarrassment. They didn't listen to the people nor more then did McCain. We're tired and we're mad...we're sick of people like them thinking they know more then the American People...instead of talking for us...they talked for themselves and the Bush. Admin. had they been listening to us....it might have went in a much different direction!

I did a quick search on the net to see if I could find anything from rush on paul.

This is all i got.

RUSH: Andrew in Mountlake Terrace, Washington. Hi.

CALLER: Hi, Rush, how's it going?

RUSH: Good. Fine. Thank you.

CALLER: I'm calling today to talk about Congressman Ron Paul, and I think that he is probably one of the more conservative candidates running for president, and I think that you should talk about him more on your radio show.

RUSH: I should talk about Ron Paul more?

CALLER: Yes.

RUSH: Okay. Well, it's Open Line Friday, so I'll take that under advisement. I appreciate it. You're a Ron Paul acolyte?

CALLER: Well, I'm an 18-year-old now, in Mount Terrace, Washington, and I've been following the 2008 election.

RUSH: Right.

CALLER: And, I don't know, I think that he's... Sorry if I seem a little nervous. It's my first time calling you.

RUSH: I understand that. I've been a first-time caller, too, many years ago. I know how nervous it is. We don't have much time here to talk about Ron Paul because the time is dwindling. Let's see, I have seven seconds, six seconds. What can I say? Uh... Ron Paul. Republican candidate for president, Ron Paul.


Please post Rush's full reply when you get it.

Does anyone have any clips of Rush talking about Paul or interviewing him? Seems he had him on back in 2002.

Thank You, I have sent a few angry messages to him myself, but yours tooped it off.

l love how people go "OOh, Ron Paul is older than McCain!". Sure is, but he's in much better healthy physically and mentally.

Plus I'm sure Ron Paul can sleep at night knowing he tried his hardest to make the world a better place on a daily basis.

Open your eyes man. Your party is killing my country..... You and your partners in crime are sleeping with the enemy who is in bed with the international corporate elite that are selling us out.... I know that you don't like the two party system because it is your misguided opinion that yours should be the only one but that is not going to happen...... We aren't being represented by either of the two parties that we are being allowed to vote for..... If you want things to resemble what we were given to work with by our founding fathers, you can depend on neither of the two parties that exist today as they are to provide nothing but manipulation of policy and blame.....I have heard nothing but truth on all topics covered by Dr. Paul, and all of the things that he said in July, that were to happen in regards to the financial situation that now exist, are true. ....You had better believe that it is worse than it seems right now, and worsening.... While you are distracted by all the hateful name calling ,lies, emotional rhetoric and other well thought out distractions things are going on that is being formulated to enslave us all..... You are getting your information from a very weak man, with an addiction to opiates, alcohol, food and questionable sexual deviations.....The man is nothing more than an over paid carnival act that hides behind a microphone and screams insults and hangs up on callers that he can't match wits with....... Pathetic.
