“Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider than that!”
not from some over paid windbag.
They are better educated and much more affluent than most Americans...
More self-identified Limbaugh regulars have college diplomas than the population as a whole, and the survey shows that while 9 percent of all American households take in $75,000 a year or more, 19 percent of the dittoheads make that much...
Limbaugh's regular listeners are among the most likely Americans to view the federal government as a "major threat" to their personal rights, freedoms and financial well-being...

Yet if you look at the bible, it sounds much more like Marxism and socialism than it does capitalism.
Then you need to reread the bible, you are missing the part about actually being self reliant and serving one another. The part about actually being a productive member of society and not being a slave to the take take take program like Marxism and Socialism.
Their is a huge difference between what the Bible says for you to do and What Marxism and Socialism want you to be. One will free society from the government tit, the other will demand you latch on and start sucking.
Yes, it looks like Marxism and Socialism at first glance, but with a MAJOR difference. You must be productive or your kicked out. The complete opposite is true for Marxism, in fact, you are encouraged not to be productive. Marxism/Socialism is nothing short of Theft.
Fine, you dont like Rush. Dont listen! Is that so hard to do? Is their some magic in his voice that compels you to leave the radio on his station to listen?

I've always wondered that myself.
A neighbor of mine listens to him nonstop... my brain would turn to jelly and dribble out of my ear if I tried that... perhaps that is what has happened since he seems to be going down hill.
If anything came out of this election is that people are sick and tired of the politics of division and hate yet if the Republicans embrace limbaugh's rhetoric and continue to be the party of no... the party of divison and hate... then they are going to continue losing elections.
Limbaugh... like Coulter and Savage, Beck and Hannity is on the far right and like it or not they have never been a majority and if the Republican party continues to cater and kowtow to them...
They might have to sell their elephant to a glue factory.

Truth is, American conservatives are those who has never traveled and lived in other nations to see a different side of the human condition. That's why people still listen to Limbaugh.

Oh brother! ^ THAT definition of a conservative is just not true. I think we can find both conservatives and Liberals anywhere on the planet.
Anyway, people are entitled. I choose the likes of Alex Jones, who happens to be a conservative Patriot in his own right and i'm a liberal. I guess i have picked him because i see HIS message coming true on a daily basis.
Whatever floats your boat. I also think its reached the point where there is no more Dems or Repubs, its all one thing...a big gigantic mess.

Really? What countries have you been in?
I have lived abroad and traveled around the world. I am a conservative.
By the way, the more that I travel the more I see my point of view validated. Socialism does not work and you can clearly see the misery that communism and socialism have brought to the countries that practiced those forms of government.
