A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on anger, elections, extremism, feeling, future, government, insecurity, kindness, majorities, media, men, myth, people, theory, thinking, uncertainty, unhappiness, voting, and women

The Myth of the Angry White Male What has sprung up is a strange kind of thinking. . . . Americans are unhappy with their lot. They are feeling insecure - layoffs and corporate downsizing have made their future uncertain. Stirred up by talk radio, the theory goes, large numbers of formerly sensible people have embraced 'hate' and 'extremism.' Most of these, according to the media, are white guys. A Washington Post/ABC pre-election poll asked voters if they were angry 'about the way the federal government works.' Four out of five white males said no. 62 percent of white men voted for Republican House candidates (38 percent for Democrats in 1994, a ten-point increase from the 1990 midterm elections). But was this special to their gender? In 1994 white women voted for Republican House candidates by a 55 to 45 percent majority. Significantly, there isn't single article decrying 'angry white females.'

A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on children, facts, freedom, history, honor, individuality, pride, prosperity, respect, responsibility, schools, truth, and world

Regarding Ronald Reagan: In point of fact, the image of Ronald Reagan, the man responsible for shaping that decade (the 1980s), should be carved into Mount Rushmore, minted into coins, and emblazoned in a place of honor in every school child's history text as a constant reminder of this great man's contributions to world freedom, national pride, and individual prosperity. With the truth, the term 'Reaganomics' will be used only as a term of endearment and respect.

A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on belief, confusion, danger, enemies, growth, history, home, legacy, liberals, media, nations, perception, politicians, prosperity, sharing, and strength

Regarding Ronald Reagan: Liberals correctly perceive the Reagan record as their most dangerous enemy. Why? Because what happened during the 1980s - prosperity at home (the longest period of peacetime growth in this nation's history, strength abroad - directly contradicts every liberal belief. Bill Clinton has confused many about the 1980s and the Reagan legacy. His patently false mantra states, "The rich got richer, the poor got poorer. The rich didn't pay their fair share, etc." The 1980s have been intentionally mischaracterized by slick liberal politicians with the complicity of the mainstream media.

Conservative ideas are alive and dynamic, the result of a free and intellectually honest vision for the country. As long as conservatism is strong, the future of a strong America is assured.

A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on beginning, belief, destruction, inflation, poverty, society, war, wealth, welfare, and world

Between 1965 (the beginning of LBJ's "Great Society") and 1994, welfare spending has cost the taxpayers $5.4 trillion in constant 1993 dollars. The War on Poverty has cost us 70 % more than the total price tag for defeating both Germany and Japan in World War II, after adjusting for inflation. Many believe that Welfare has destroyed millions of families and cost a huge portion of our national wealth in the process.

A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on bankers, blindness, business, cities, driving, government, jobs, leadership, and machines

government barriers on Business For example, the Endangered Species Act prevents 'disturbing the habitat' of the spotted owl. That has restricted 4.2 million acres of forest from development, leading to the loss of 30,000 lumber-related jobs and the annual loss of 1.1 billion board feet of lumber. This has driven up the cost of houses by at least $4,000 each. In addition, regulators ordered a Kansas City bank to install a Braille keypad on its drive-through automatic teller machine, presumably to aid any blind drivers. The list goes on and on.

A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on citizenship, death, food, good, government, health, honor, individuality, justice, liberals, nations, pain, poverty, security, socialism, success, suffering, and work

Less Government When you look at our vast government and the hundreds of billions of dollars it costs, it's hard to find success, but easy to find the harm that others have caused. There just aren't many agencies that are really indispensable to the nation's security and well-being those should be keept and the fat should be trimmed. It's honorable to attempt to reduce pain, suffering, and poverty. But it is not realistic to expect that every citizen can be provided the same amounts of good food, comfortable housing, and health care. It is up to the individual to do work. In short Liberalism, socialism, and utopianism are a dead end, just look at the former Soviet Union. If you like their system, maybe you should move there.

What's the difference between a liberal and a conservative? A liberal will interpret the constitution, a conservative will quote it!
