RUSH: This guy is Mark in Royal Oak, Michigan. Welcome, sir. I’m glad that you called. Hi.
CALLER: Thank you. Thanks for taking my call. I was speaking to your call screener as I was waiting, and you stole my point about what Elijah Cummings said, the fact that this woman that makes $35,000 a year, and she’s paying for these boondoggles that the IRS is doing. My first thought was, well, yeah, she’s making $35,000 a year, she doesn’t pay any taxes, you stole my point. That’s okay, but I wanted to get to my other point, which is the 21 years that I’ve been listening to you, you have changed not only the way I think, I think the way millions of people in this country think. The first thing that I thought of when I heard that Elijah Cummings clip was, yeah, that lady doesn’t pay any taxes because she’s making $35,000 a year. I think had alternative media not existed, we would still be sucking up the pabulum that the mainstream media is feeding to us, and that kind of stuff would have just gone right by us. So I want to thank you profoundly for changing not only the way I think, but the way America thinks.
RUSH: Wow. I appreciate that, sir. I really do. That’s quite a very nice thing for you to say.
CALLER: Well, I mean it from the bottom of my heart, because much to the chagrin of my mother, she raised us kids to think for ourselves. She was, and still is to this day, a very staunch liberal thinker. And one of the things that she had always done in her life was profess the fact that she let us kids decide for ourselves how to think. And I can’t tell you how much I thank her for doing that in us, because had she tried to indoctrinate us with her political thinking, she would have five very liberal kids. But we had the opportunity to think for ourselves.
RUSH: Well, you know, that’s something. I’m glad you mentioned that. For people that are aware that they have that ability, it is really a comforting thing to know that you have the ability to avoid the conventional wisdom of the day. You have the ability to recognize how the crowd is being swept up. You have the ability not, if you choose to, to follow it and go along with it, stand out, be the individual. It’s a very confidence inspiring thing to be aware of about yourself, and I’m glad that you have it, and I appreciate your comment, I really do. Changing the way America thinks, one American at a time. That’s why we’re engaged now, don’t forget, in our outreach to the low-information voters.
