RUSH: Here’s Brock in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. Glad you waited. Welcome to the EIB Network, sir.
CALLER: Thank you, professor. I’m a pupil since 1988. You know, Senator McCain was at a forum, kind of a town hall meeting, and he expressed the complete futility in arresting and deporting 12 million illegal aliens. In other words, by his logic, we should not even try to arrest and deport a few. So I would ask him to introduce some legislation to stop IRS audits. After all, we can’t find all tax cheats. The whole point, Rush, is, with the IRS, by their own admission, when they audit a few people, it creates deterrence, when you hear about a neighbor getting audited. Should we stop arresting people for running a stop sign because we can’t arrest everybody that runs stop signs?
RUSH: Exactly right. You’ve hit on something. They don’t want to deport them. I mean, the INS, or ICE, whatever they’re called now, they proudly announced they’ve deported, what is it, 200,000 or 300,000 in the last 12 months. Okay, you can do that. Nobody is saying do 12 million tomorrow. But if you can deport ’em, if you round up that many in a year, at least it’s a start. It can be done. It just may not be able to done overnight. But they don’t want to do it. That’s what this is all about. They don’t want to deport them.
CALLER: They don’t want to create a deterrence.
RUSH: No, neither. You’re exactly right. The exact opposite. All the talk about secure borders is just talk and that’s designed to placate as many opponents of this as they can. Thanks. That’s a good call.
CALLER: Rush, can I have an A?
RUSH: Can you have an A?
CALLER: On this exam, can I have an A?
CALLER: Thank you.
RUSH: We allow self-grading here at the EIB Network. Well, this is about personal responsibility. You know, this is about self-reliance. If you think you got an A, give yourself an A. If you think it was a B, give yourself a B. If you think you got an A, feel free! There are no graduates here, there are no degrees, and the learning never stops.
