RUSH: Sheria from Louisville. Great to have you on the program and hello.
CALLER: Hi. It’s such an honor to speak with you, finally. I have three children who absolutely love the Rush Revere books. I want to thank you so much for that. I am a hard-working middle class to upper middle class mother trying to raise my children in this land of the free and the home of the brave. And I’m just very, very concerned that it seems like our freedoms are being stripped away daily. We watched a movie on the American Revolution last night and it almost made me cry because I see what these boys fought for and died for and it’s being stripped away on a daily basis. So I wanted to see what your thoughts were on how we can turn this back around, or if we can.
RUSH: Well, that’s what we’ve been trying to do here for years. I constantly ask myself what needs to be done. Is the fire lit under people? Does it need to be lit? I think people like you and me are just waiting for somebody with a good idea for us on what needs to be done. What was the movie you watched?
CALLER: We watched The Patriot with Mel Gibson.
RUSH: Yeah. You know, it’s amazing. In writing these books, you relive what so many people — it’s been 200 plus years. People take it for granted. A lot of people are not even taught it. It’s astounding what all had to happen for this country to exist. We’re out of time right now, but tomorrow I promise to pick up on this Sheria.
