RIP: Carman and Rush Limbaugh

Two trail-blazing, larger than life icons have passed within the past 24 hours.

The first concert I attended was Carman's "Addicted to Jesus" concert back in the early 90s. A few years later, I attended his "Raising the Standard" concert. Both were the best concerts I've been to. Carman was an incredible showman and singer. His concerts were entertaining and uplifting for all ages. He was also a good preacher and gave good mini-sermons during the concert.

I owned almost every album on cassette tape or compact disc that he released.

I first heard Rush Limbaugh in the late 80s and quickly became a "Dittohead." I listened to every show I could and loved his humor and the way he was able to take complex issues and break them down so anyone in his audience could understand.

Both were "GOATs" in their professions. There will never be another artist like Carman and there will never be another political talk show host like Rush Limbaugh.

God bless their families in their time of loss.

Re: RIP: Carman and Rush Limbaugh

“They resent the whole premise behind elections. Look, they don’t believe they should have to persuade anybody to agree with them. Therefore, they don’t believe in campaigns. They don’t believe in the free, open exchange of ideas. There aren’t any legitimate ideas outside of their own.

They don’t believe in giving legitimacy to anybody who is not already on their side. So if this is who they are psychologically — if they have no interest in persuading people, if they have no interest in acquiring power as a result of massive public support — then who are they? What are they? They want power simply to have it. They don’t want it to derive from the people.

They don’t want it to derive from persuading people that their ideas are the best — and where is all of that codified? All of that thinking, all of that behavior is codified in elections. What are elections about? Elections are about trying to persuade people to support you, to vote for you. Based on what? Well, it could be any number of things.

It could be you’re better looking than the other guy. You’re gonna give away more welfare than the other guy. You’re gonna beat our enemies better than anybody else. Whatever it is, elections are the result of persuading millions of people to support you. They resent having to do that. One reason is they’re a minority. They can’t persuade a majority of people.

They can’t persuade a majority of Americans to support Black Lives Matter. They can’t persuade a majority of Americans to support burning down American cities and private property. They can’t persuade a majority of Americans to go along with their ideas on guns and eliminating free speech. They can’t persuade anybody to agree with that!

Those are things they’re gonna have to force on people, and they are more than willing and eager to force that stuff on you, but they need the power to do it. So they have to go through the motions. The modern-day Democrats have to go through the motions of campaigning, and they have to go through the motions of trying to win the hearts and minds of voters.

But they resent the h*** out of it. And in their world, it’s the one thing standing in their way: This need, this requirement to win elections. And I’m just telling you: As soon as they can figure out a way to eliminate elections, they will do it, ’cause they resent the h*** out of it. This is… (interruption) Mr. Snerdley, the program observer, just said to me over the IFB.

He said, “I gotta admit something. When I first heard you say that the left and Democrats ultimately want to do away with elections, I thought you were going insane. I thought you were mad. I thought that all of this had finally gotten to you.” Well, that has to be some years ago now when I first advanced the theory. But now you say you can see it?

(interruption) “They’re doing it in front of our faces.” They really are. They are attempting to win elections without broad public support. That’s what they’re trying to do. That’s just another way of phrasing what they’re doing. How do you win elections without broad public support?

The Democrats got rid of elections by stealing the 2020 election for the President of the United States of America. President Trump had the greatest win in US history with 75 million votes, a record, and they stole it.”

Rush Limbaugh

Back on subject...

Rush's wife, Kathryn, opened the radio show this morning with the announcement of his death. Very touching.

Re: RIP: Carman and Rush Limbaugh

Rush’s 2009 CPAC remarks, where he does a masterful job differentiating liberals & conservatives. Unlike the left, which micromanages based on group IDs, conservatives celebrate the individual, their liberty & their inherent, unique talents.
