RUSH: Here's Bob in St. Cloud Minnesota. Great that you are on the program, and thank you for waiting as well.
CALLER: Hi, Rush.
CALLER: It's real nice to get through to you and to be able to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: First of all, I want to thank you for helping to maintain our national sovereignty.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate that, sir. Thank you very much.
CALLER: That really means a lot. Now, I appreciate getting through in order to bring up a question that I think is really important at this time. My question is: To what extent do you think illegal voting will be a factor in the upcoming election?
RUSH: I don't know to what extent it will occur, but I do know the Democrats are counting on it and want it to happen. They want the option to cheat. It is why they are so opposed to voter ID, photo ID, in order to vote.
CALLER: And I suppose that's why they want to get all these illegals into the country, you know?
RUSH: Damn right.
CALLER: Even though a lot of them won't have the right to vote.
RUSH: Not only that, they're potential future dependents on government.
RUSH: The last thing they want is these people coming in and becoming self-reliant. That does not further the Democrat Party at all. Self-reliance, individualism, people taking care of themselves does not advance the Democrat Party, and that's all they're interested in.
RUSH: When it comes to illegal voting, somebody's gonna have to explain to me where I'm wrong about this. Something needs to be said about this, too. You need a photo ID to cash a check, to buy things. You need a photo ID to get on an airplane. You need a photo ID for practically everything. Democrats do not want minorities to have to have a photo ID. You had to have a photo ID to get near, and then in, the Democrat convention.
But they don't want you to have to have one to vote.
The only reason for that is so they can cheat. There can be no other reason. Now, they say that a lot of blacks in America are scared to death to go down and get a photo ID, because that means the government's then gonna start spying on 'em. And their experience with the government's not all that healthy, and they don't trust the government. I don't know why. The Democrats run it; they vote for Democrats. I don't know what the problem is.
But you look at all of the mainstream economic activity that requires a photo ID, that Democrat leaders are very comfortable with denying to many of their voters. You can't get on an airplane without one. You can't cash a check without one. You need a photo ID for practically everything that you do in our society today, and yet the Democrat leaders are content with American blacks being shut out of mainstream economic activity. That's the only way to look at it. The only way it makes sense.
You can't buy alcohol without it.
You can't buy cigarettes.
If you're young and if there's any doubt about your age, you have to have a photo ID. To open a bank account, much less cash a check, you need it. The Democrats even had an illegal alien speak at their convention. That's the first time that's ever happened. Did you know that? Don't doubt me. It's the first time an illegal immigrant spoke about... Well, I don't know what he said or she said. I didn't see it. But I know it was scheduled. Bob, thank you very much. I appreciate your kind words.
