RUSH: Teresa in Alliance, Ohio, I’m glad you called. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi. Yeah, in Ohio, transplanted from Miami. So every time you say “sunny Florida,” I get a little bit homesick.
RUSH: I can imagine you do.
CALLER: Well, I just wanted to thank you for just doing what you do, ’cause I guess I’m classified as one of your low-information voters — or, you know, people.
RUSH: Well, if you’re listening to this program, you were one at one time.
CALLER: I were — I was, yeah.
RUSH: You can’t be now.
CALLER: I was until a few years ago. I started listening to you, and you have been systematically bringing me up to, um… It’s just kind of like a big puzzle, and little puzzle pieces are starting to, you know, fit in here.
CALLER: Then I started getting real concerned because, you know, I didn’t pay attention to a lot of government stuff before and politics and all of that, and now it’s all starting to make sense. I didn’t even know if I was a Democrat or a Republican. I mean, I had to figure that out. Now you’ve given me some meat to chew. You give me meat to chew on each time. You know, I have to look up words like “filibuster” and “sequester” and all those different things just to understand kind of what that means in the government —
CALLER: — and all the political world.
RUSH: God bless you for taking the time to look them up. Most people that don’t know them are intimidated by them and think that it’s something bad and run away from it.
CALLER: No. Well, if you want to understand something, you have to. You know, I guess I just go that extra step. Not that I understand it all, all the time. Like, you were talking about the figures, and the 18%. I was listening to all that, and I was trying to follow you. You know, when you get into some technical stuff, it still kind of loses me a little bit. But then you kind of brought it around that I understood it, you know, into meaning.
RUSH: That’s what we try to do here —
RUSH: — is make the complex understandable.
CALLER: And that’s why I listen, ’cause I’m just like a schoolgirl now even though I’m old. (laughing)
RUSH: Ah, nah-nah-nah-nah.
CALLER: I am. I remember the sixties.
RUSH: You’re not old! You are on the threshold of a brand-new life here. You’re gonna have youthful enthusiasm now, learning all these things that that you didn’t know. It’s gonna totally change your life. You’re gonna be young at heart like you’ve never been before, other than the last guy you met.
