RUSH: Larry in Indianapolis. Larry, great to have you on the program. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Thank you, sir. How are you today?
RUSH: Very good. Appreciate your call.
CALLER: Today I’m calling because, you know, I’m just about a 50-year-old man, been in the workforce all my life. I’m a young conservative in that I was raised a very simple thinker. I probably became pretty apathetic when it came to politics up until the last half dozen or less years, I started to pay attention. Now it’s got me scared. My question really stems from the point — let me give you the example, and maybe we can answer the question there.
CALLER: If any given politician is asked a question, let’s just say you ask that politician, “What time is it?” Why do they sit there and tell you how to build a watch instead of just answering the question?
RUSH: It is the nature of the business to always have untried solutions or better ways of making a watch rather than just making the existing one work. So to answer your question, how to wind it wouldn’t serve the purpose. They want you to pay for the funding, for the design of a new watch, when you don’t even need one, and they want to tell you the watch you currently have is worthless, particularly if a Republican company built it.
CALLER: Right. But when it even comes to a yes-or-no question they still will meander down a rabbit’s trail instead of giving you a yes or a no.
RUSH: Well, it is the nature of politics as a business. You are just now arriving here at being interested in this level in this stuff, you were not all that into this until recently?
CALLER: Unfortunately, being raised in the public school system and being indoctrinated into so many different civil theologies, if you will, unfortunately, yeah, I just now jumped on the train, and I’m just now learning.
RUSH: Okay, let me give you the best answer to your question. Don’t ask them. Do it yourself. Don’t ask ’em why anything is. Don’t depend on ’em. Don’t depend on a politician for where you’re gonna end up in life. They can’t possibly care about you as much as you do. They can’t possibly be as interested in the outcome of your life as you are, so don’t even ask ’em. Just do it yourself, pure and simple.
