RUSH: This is Alexis in Statesville, North Carolina. How you doing?
CALLER: I’m doing great. How are you?
RUSH: Fine and dandy. Thank you.
CALLER: The reason I wanted to call today is, first, I wanted to tell you that I absolutely love your radio show. You tell the truth about America, and everyone needs to know it.
RUSH: Well, I thank you very much for that. I appreciate it. I agree.
RUSH: I agree. Everybody does need to know it, and that remains our objective here, to not quit until everybody agrees with me.
CALLER: Mmm-hmm. Second, I wanted to tell you that I love your Rush Revere book series. I’m actually reading the third one right now, Rush Revere and the American Revolution, and I love it. I read the first, second, and I’m on the third. We use the Brave Pilgrim ones for our history with the study guide, ’cause I’m homeschooled.
RUSH: Wait a minute, I just saw… You know what? You are 12 years old, right?
RUSH: I just saw that up on the screen. It was hidden up there.
RUSH: I thought you were your mother for a minute, and then I realized she’s 12.
RUSH: Blew my mind.
RUSH: You sound like an adult. I’m talking about terms of your maturity.
CALLER: Yeah, everyone tells me I sound and look older.
RUSH: Well, you do!
RUSH: I mean, here you are and you’re talking about these books and American history. You’ve got knowledge way beyond your years. Homeschooling must be great to you.
CALLER: Yes. Thank you.
RUSH: Holy smokes. Do you have all of the books or you just have the three?
CALLER: I just have the four. I need the fifth and it’s gonna be a complete set.
RUSH: Well, I’ve got bought a bunch of copies of number five sitting right here. I’d be happy to send it to you.
CALLER: Ohhhhh, really? Thank you so much.
RUSH: Now, also, do you like Liberty? Do you like the character Liberty?
CALLER: Love Liberty.
RUSH: We’ve got a Liberty stuffed doll that is just to die for. You will absolutely love Liberty, the stuffed doll.
CALLER: Awww. Thank you.
RUSH: You deserve it. This is great. Honestly, Alexis, I didn’t… I just messed up. Mr. Snerdley put that you’re 12. But he put the number 12 in parentheses, and it didn’t connect with me at first, and I thought you were a mother talking about the books. Anyway, thank you so much.
CALLER: Thank you.
RUSH: You are the exact target that these books are written for, people like yourself. So if you will hang on —
RUSH: — we are gonna get your address so that we can send you a whole Revere package of stuff, and we will get it out as quickly as we can. Does she sound older than 12 to you all? (interruption) Okay, good. It’s not just me. ‘Cause actually I thought I was talking to the mother of a child that she was homeschooling. She’s 12 years old. In a way, that’s kind of scary.
