The Conservative Voice of Personal Liberty - RIP Rush Limbaugh
31 comments | Share | Flag
"In philosophy, individualism means our lives are our highest value; our rights are a moral principle. In economics, it means that we produce and freely trade value for value with others for mutual personal profit. In politics, it means justice and protection from the threat of government force. The domain of The Rush Limbaugh Show is almost entirely conservative Republican politics, to a fault. But he is also a staunch defender of free market economics and the founding principles of individualism at the root of American exceptionalism. He fights his rhetorical battles in the muck of politics because that’s where cultural trends manifest themselves, the swamp where the beast used to dominate, and where the mass audience is, the collectivists’ dreaded bourgeoisie."
Lately, however, I've always shut it off when there was no Rush and opted to listen to music instead.
It's just curiosity holding me here right now.
Rush was the best friend and teacher I never met and I loved him.
Two good friends who helped me think:
... gone within months of each other.
We will endeavor to persevere.

He was a fast thinker though and he knew his audience wasn't full of objectivists.
Unfortunately, action from fast thought is often less productive than more considered action.
Rush was great at getting past any objections and on to his points, especially when the objections were valid ones.
He was an excellent entertainer and his audience loved having the left cut to bits verbally - when they wanted them to be cut to bits in reality.
