RUSH: I mentioned to you, people say, "You know, you need to write a new book." And I don't want to write another book. I've been there, done that. Books are all over the place out there. I don't have an iron butt. I can't sit down long enough to write a book, and now I don't have to 'cause my buddy Mark Levin -- Flee -- new book is out called Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America. I don't have to write another book, at least not now. What are you giving me that look for, Snerdley? It is a great book. (interruption) Well, I should do a 20th anniversary of the first book. I have people reading it for the first time. It's still relevant. But with Levin's book out there I don't need to write a new one right now. I could dictate it to the iPhone, I could dictate it with the iPhone, you're absolutely right, you're absolutely right.
Anyway, writing is hard for me. But I do speak. You know, I'm thinking maybe I'll just have to hire somebody to do this, to go through every show monologue and put together a book of show monologues. Those things haven't been in print, other than at RushLimbaugh.com. And it's so massive, that would be a massive entity. There is probably a volume of books in the monologues I've done. That would be a monumental process.
But, anyway, I just wanted to give a shout out to Mark's book Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America. If you want to know why, and I mean if you want to know, other than just guessing and having your own sense of awareness, if you want to know why 48.6% of the population lives in a household receiving some type of government assistance, it's because it's being done on purpose. There is an effort to unmake this country. There is an effort to destroy this country as founded, to destroy the sovereignty of every individual. We talk about America as a nation losing its sovereignty. The sovereignty of every individual is under assault, and has been for years.
And the question that everybody has is, "Is it too late?" To salvage it, to reverse it. 48.6% of the population living in a household receiving some type of government benefit -- and that is becoming the new definition of being an American, that entitlement. The government is supposed to provide these things, that's what the Occupy bunch is all about. That's Obama's creation to create that sentiment, that the purpose of America is to make sure outcomes in life are equal, that nobody has any more than anybody else.
RUSH: I just went to Amazon to check Levin's book. I just wanted to give you some of the reviews of Levin's book at Amazon, and they're all positive. "A reaffirmation of liberty, inalienable rights, civil society, and constitutional republicanism." "Instructive and informative." "An incredible book for a perilous time."
An inspiring book, too. Again, it's called Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America. It's a combination of taking "Utopia," which is an impossible thing! Utopia is impossible, but the left is out searching for it. It's their quest, and that's what they want to turn America into: Ameritopia. It can't be done, and they destroy the country in their effort to create this myth, this mythological place that cannot be reached. It is impossible for there to be perfection in anything. Nothing is perfect, and yet that's their quest -- as they define it, but it's perverted all the way around. So, at least for now, I don't have to write another book. But I will at some point. I think the thing to do would be... Vince Flynn has been after me. He's been dogging me to do this. It was actually his idea to do a compendium book on all the radio show monologues, which is a good idea, and he said he would wave any commissions, so I'm free to go there.
