An 18-Year-Old EIB Lifer


RUSH:  Newport, Michigan, and Sarah.  Great to have you on the program.  Hi.


RUSH:  How are you?

CALLER:  I'm good.  How are you?

RUSH:  I'm never better.  Never better.

CALLER:  Well, I'm 18 years old, and I've been listening to your show, like, forever.

RUSH:  You are 18?


RUSH:  No.

CALLER:  Yeah.

RUSH:  No.

CALLER:  Yeah.

RUSH:  You sound like 25.

CALLER:  Well --

RUSH:  Maybe even 30.  I'm talking attitudinally here, Sarah.

CALLER:  Whoa.  Thank you.

RUSH:  Yeah, I'm not talking about your voice, although that's probably in the mix, too.  Eighteen?  You sound so composed.  You sound so confident.  This is great.

CALLER:  I'm excited.

RUSH:  You sound relaxed, too.  That's great.  Well, it's great to have you here.

CALLER:  Well, it's great to be here.  I've always wanted to call.  Always.  Anyways, I wanted to thank you because you speak the truth and not like all the other stupid news people.

RUSH:  Well, I appreciate you thinking that.

CALLER:  Yeah.  Because, I don't know.  They drive me crazy.

RUSH:  It drives a lot of people crazy.  That's what drove me crazy about last night.

CALLER:  Yeah.

RUSH:  You know, I have a definite view of limited government, but I don't want to be disconnected from it.  I don't want to feel estranged from it.  I don't like this ruling class, country class stuff, but it's true, it exists.

CALLER:  It does.

RUSH:  That speech last night, it's not just the speech, I really can't recall -- I'm 63; you're 18 -- I can't recall a time where I've felt more distant, further away from the people leading the country than I do today, and I don't like it.

CALLER:  Yeah.  I don't like it, either.

RUSH:  I don't trust them. I don't they care what we are interested in or want. I question whether or not they understand what's best for the country versus what's best for them. All these things go back and back and forth, and I don't like even having the thoughts.  But I'm flattered that you like the program.

CALLER:  Well, yeah.  I've been listening to it forever.  My mom listens to it, my dad listens to it, my grandpa did.

RUSH:  Sounds like you're a lifer, then.

CALLER:  I am.  Definitely.

RUSH:  Well, at 18, are you still in high school or are you out?

CALLER:  I'm out.

RUSH:  And what are your plans?

CALLER:  Go to college. 

RUSH:  Any particular one?

CALLER:  Community.  Yeah.

RUSH:  Well, have you found what your life's dream is?  Do you know what you want to do?

CALLER:  No.  I have not found what my life's dream is.

RUSH:  Well, you will.  You will.  And hang in, just be patient.  It will reveal itself.  When that happens, devote yourself to it.
