RUSH: I hope you have a great remainder of the year and that whatever you hope and dream for next year and the years beyond come true. Merry Christmas, everybody, and see you next year on January 5th.
RUSH: So much of everything that is attacking our basic civilization is the result of lies. Some big, some little, but people believing them and acting on them. And people are getting killed because of it, and the country is being torn apart because of it.
RUSH: People say, "Hey, Rush, I don't think this Jameis Winston story qualifies as lighthearted." You think? That's exactly my point here, folks. We can't find any lighthearted news.
CALLER: When every holiday rolls around, we think of you and you are almost invariably a part of our holiday, whether it's Fourth of July when we read the essay that your dad wrote about the Americans who risked everything, reading the true meaning of Thanksgiving, the story of Thanksgiving and George Washington's proclamation. And, at Christmastime especially, I know this is the time of year when you get very thankful, and you actually introduced us to Mannheim Steamroller, and now Stille Nacht is a valuable part of what we do as a family and part of our tradition.

So we've sent them books. We've donated books to some schools, and more than you would believe. It surprised me.
CALLER: The whole time that we have listened to you, never a lie, not one. That is amazing, to have spoken as much as you have. It's an inspiration.
RUSH: I would love to be able to tell you how. I'd love to be able to give you tangible things that you could point to, I could point to, you could grab onto as evidence that I think this stuff is gonna eventually implode on itself. Unfortunately, I can't. I can just share with you the idea and the firm belief that I do think these people are ultimately going to lose.
RUSH: I just got on the microphone and said, ladies and gentlemen, Elton John. And the place erupted into a standing ovation. He didn't know what he was gonna get. I mean, let's face it. There are so many cliches about conservatives and liberals and so forth. He loved it.
RUSH: I think they're both gone next year, be my guess.
