RUSH: Okay, Warren, New Jersey, as we start on the phones, this is Robert. Great to have you, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Ex-military, American-Cuban, Two If By Tea, Marco Rubio for president, mega dittos, Rush.
RUSH: Well, it's great to hear such an enthusiastic first caller today. Great to have you here, sir.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. I just wanted to quickly talk to you about how the Democrats constantly intermingle emotional terms when concerning the necessary cuts as being Draconian, when ultimately if there are no cuts made, the most Draconian thing will happen.
RUSH: What you're saying is if we don't do something about this certainly down the road it's all gonna collapse?
CALLER: Yeah. I mean, it has to.
RUSH: Yes. Exactly. I've been making that point for I don't know how many days here. That what Obama is saying is going to happen with the sequester is gonna happen for real if we don't do things like the sequester and more. But let me tell you what's happening here. I've been doing this for 25 years. Actually, if you count the three-and-a-half years in Sacramento, 28 years I've been doing this type of show. I've been doing this long enough now that I see the cycles. I see the repeats. There isn't anything new, and I've known this as it relates to the Democrat Party agenda for years.
They have a small playbook and they just keep recycling the plays, and all that changes is the names of the Republicans, and some of the names of the Democrats. The 1995 budget battle is identical to what's being said now. Starving children, nothing changes. One of the frustrating things, folks, if I might tell you, is that I would think that the Republicans, after 30 years, would have figured out a way to beat this back. We know the playbook. We know what they're gonna do. We know how they're going to do it. We know when they're gonna do it. We know what they're going to say. We know everything about their playbook. And somehow we can't stop it. And all kinds of excuses are offered for not being able to stop it.
The biggest excuse offered is, "Well, we don't have the media, Rush, and they do," and I know it's a major factor. There's no other way around it, it's true. But the one thing that the Republicans are reluctant to try is draw the contrast with what liberalism is, what Obamaism is, what his intentions are. They do not effectively make the case for the alternative. Look at immigration. You know, there's a big move on, and I told you about my golf bubby. There's a big move on now to just totally eliminate any concern over the social issues whatsoever, because we gotta save the economy. The economy is where your kids' future is, the grandkids' future. And that's exactly right. But all this stuff is interlinked.
Social issues and economic issues are linked by something, and it's called morality. And it's morality that's missing here, and while Obama runs around and claims the country was founded immorally and unjustly, the truth of the matter is that they're doing everything they can to eliminate morality. There are no guardrails. There are no limits. And there will be no judgments. Nobody has the right to say something is wrong. Nobody has the right anymore to say something is right. Nobody has the right to say something shouldn't happen because it's destructive and detrimental. You don't have that right. Who you love, who you want to live with, how you want to live, where you want to get your money from the government for a job, it's nobody else's business.
And so morality is being eliminated, and this country was founded on the basis of it. This country was founded on the premise that if morality is ever eliminated, this country can't exist as it was founded. Now, what is happening here? The Democrats are attempting to establish in the minds of as many Americans as possible that life itself depends on a thriving and growing government in the center of everyone's life. That's why there can be no cuts to it.
