AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

I Want to Stand by My Conservative Principles ’Til I Die!

“Stand for something or fall for anything”. “Live for nothing or die for something”.

Just as the Democrats went from a respectable Party of Zell Miller and Joe Lieberman to then considering them both nutcases, now the Republican Party, led by McCainservatives, “moderates” and liberal Republicans are looking to purge principled Conservatives – the heart, soul and backbone of the Republican Party – from the Party.

I have two words for you people: FUCK.YOU.

I ain’t giving up and I’m fighting for this country, even if you will not. I’m not going to let you turn the Republican Party into Democrat Party-lite and have one big liberal, socialist government. Not gonna fucking happen. You can bitch all you want about us conservatives, but we’re not going away. We actually stand for something, besides political expediency and “electibility”.

You can either join us in saving this nation or feel free to sit down, shut up and get the fuck out of the way.

Keep Focused, Conservatives

[ … ] CALLER: The good old days. I was calling to tell you that McCain — I won’t go through all the reasons I won’t vote for McCain or I wouldn’t have voted for McCain or why I dislike him. We all know that. It’s been repeated over and over again. But I was listening to you talk before and whether the Republican Party is moving to from the conservative to the more moderates or the more liberal, and we watched the Democratic Party do the same thing. There used to be people like Sam Nunn and that lovely man with the Southern accent, I can’t think of his name from down South that was so well spoken in the Democratic Party, now the Democrat Party, no matter who you run, are all the same. We had a difference in our party —

RUSH: Well, there’s one exception, and that’s Joe Lieberman, except they’ve run him out of the party, for all intents and purposes, and Zell Miller, you know, they’ve —

CALLER: Zell Miller. That’s who I was trying to think of, Zell Miller.

RUSH: — made out to be a kook and a nut now.

CALLER: But we have all these moderates, or liberals — I’m going to say liberal, not even moderates, like Specter from my state, and Olympia Snowe, and all these New Englanders that are definitely liberal. They’re not just moderates, they’re liberals. And what they’re trying to do is drag down the party, and they will all be the same. Do we want to all be the same? I want to stand by my conservative principles ’til I die.

RUSH: Good for you. Good for you!

CALLER: Whatever it takes. [ … ]

RUSH: All right. Well, look, I appreciate the call. Thanks very much, going to stick to the tried-and-true principles. Interesting point, both parties moving in the same direction. Well, the Democrats are kind of holding where they are. They’re drifting further to the commie side and kookville, but there are a bunch of Republicans moving in that direction, they want the party to go more to that direction. There’s no question of the governing class, they’ll just switch parties now and then in terms of who’s in power.

John in Columbus, Ohio, nice to have you on the EIB Network, sir. Hello. [ … ]

CALLER: My question is, I’m a conservative in Ohio, now a blue state I guess since Mr. Strickland won and Sherrod Brown took over for the lying Mr. DeWine. He’s a liberal. Since we’ve lost this election cycle, who do we look forward to in the next?

RUSH: We haven’t lost it yet.

CALLER: Well, conservative-wise we have, because there’s no difference between McCain and Hillary or Obama.

RUSH: As of today, that’s true. I don’t know what’s going to happen down the road. Look, one thing I don’t do is assume in February that things today are going to be like they are in November. I just don’t. Do you realize how much could happen between now and then? I don’t even want to go through all the possibilities. You want me to be realistic in pessimism, say, okay, we’re cooked, we’re doomed, what do we look forward to, and I’m not prepared to go there yet, because what we look forward to is what we always look forward to, and that is being who we are and attempting to change our culture as best we can, stand up for our values and empower them wherever it’s possible to do so. By the way, you talk about the election cycle is over, don’t forget the House, don’t forget the Senate. The White House is one thing, but it doesn’t exist by fiat. What goes on in the White House, whatever the executive decides, does not always happen, so there’s plenty of stuff to stay focused on here and stop looking at this is a lost cause and we don’t have any possibility of anything good happening until 2012. That’s ridiculous. Lots of stuff here still ahead. You never know what’s going to happen. One of the reasons, folks, I’m so optimistic, is I love waking up every day because I don’t know what’s going to happen, and it’s always exciting. Not just in the news, in my life. I don’t know who’s going to come popping into it, wanted or not. (laughing) Getting up is the most exciting thing in the world. I certainly am not going to pretend it’s November the 20th in this year and I’m down in the dumps.

  1. I agree with what you stated in the phone conversations.
    November is a long way off and many people change their mind as they step into the booth. The vote counts are not secure as they should be and I look for dirty dealings from the hc camp especially where the provisional ballots are concerned. NM may go her way because of that. We don’t need another or the clintons in the wh. I wish everyone would just think about what that bastard did while he was in office. We lost much face the world over and our foreign politics suffered for it. God save us from the clintons.

  2. Here is what I think we need to do .. and fight for….

    Building a 21st Century Military

    The Problem: The excellence of our military is unmatched. But as a result of a misguided war in Iraq, our forces are under pressure as never before…. make the investments we need so that the finest military in the world is best-prepared to meet 21st-century threats.

    Rebuild Trust: … rebuild trust with those who serve by ensuring that soldiers and Marines have sufficient training time before they are sent into battle.

    Expand the Military: We have learned from Iraq that our military needs more men and women in uniform to reduce the strain on our active force….increase the size of ground forces, adding 65,000 soldiers to the Army and 27,000 Marines.

    New Capabilities: …..give our troops new equipment, armor, training, and skills like language training. He will also strengthen our civilian capacity, so that our civilian agencies have the critical skills and equipment they need to integrate their efforts with our military.

    Strengthen Guard and Reserve:.… restore the readiness of the National Guard and Reserves. … permit them adequate time to train and rest between deployments, and provide the National Guard with the equipment they need for foreign and domestic emergencies. … also give the Guard a seat at the table by making the Chief of the National Guard a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
