Limbaugh to Rand: You are a hero

Never thought I'd *willingly* listen to Rush Limbaugh, but this was worth it:

Praise from Limbaugh, isn't

Praise from Limbaugh, isn't that kind of like getting herpes from a super model???

It's hard not to be a menace to society when half the population is happy on their knees. - unknown

LOL!

Literally, that had me bust a gut.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Limbaugh supported...

the Patriot Act, warrantless wiretapping, indefinite detentions of U.S. citizens, Homeland Security.....so why is he running for cover behind Rand Paul? My guess is many of Rush's listeners are realizing he's a traitor, literally. So Rush the cowardly neo-con swine is using Rand to shield himself from the barrage of verbal hellfire missiles coming from Constitutionalists. This demonstrates the power of the people to effect change.

Rand made a move. He did something.

For that he is respected. Educating the sheep will be slow and hard won. With what is coming down the pipes very quickly by way of fascist global governance, we may have to walk the hard road before we emerge from the insanity.

Drones should not be used on anyone on this planet. It is all about the global NWO creating fear to bend the entire world to its will.

Limbaugh to Rand:You hit a nerve with a lot of people last night

And how! Rand must have hit a nerve with Limbaugh as well because interviews on his show are few and far between. Limbaugh, Beck, and Hannity have all interviewed Rand in the last 24 hours. I despise these talk-show neocons, but they are the biggest in the business with huge listener-ships. If you have your eye on the White House, you need these people in your corner. It's called free advertizing. I understand and appreciate the political strategy involved. I just don't think that I could do it, and I still don't like it. This is what's called a "necessary evil."

Take the exact same circumstances ...

But swap the POTUS with a Red Team guy, and a Blue Team guy filibustering King Republicrat over the same exact issue in exactly the same way?

And Limbaugh would be whining and demagoging and demonizing the guy on air with his fat jowley red face blubbering and wheezing into the mic.

I'm glad he had Rand on elevated on a pedestal like that.

But c'mon. These people are totally superficial and full of sh*t.

On another note....

A Neocon would NEVER have a Paul on their show. Rush rarely has guests, this was a watershed moment for liberty.

A Neocon would also say something crazy about what Paul was saying i.e. Graham and McCain. No matter if Obama or Bush is President, the Commander in Chief can do no wrong "defending" this country.

Again a Neocons politics is to perpetuate conflict, the state, and absolute dominance around the world 24/7.

They don't care about your rights.
They don't care about the budget.
They don't care about life.

Brilliant Move By Rand

I would think it's going to be awfully difficult for the neocon establishment types (of which Rush most certainly is both) to be overly critical toward Rand going forward. Also, Rand can build on this by taking additional "pro constitution" stances. He just might've captured the public's imagination. Maybe this can snowball into the conscience of the mainstream public that "liberty and the constitution are a good thing and something we should all care about".

Huh?

I agree with Rush? Wooohoo!

Problem

Only problem is, I hate Rush

There's only one reason why....

Rush the neo-con is supporting Rand. That reason is millions of individual citizens who are standing up for their rights and Rush is feeling some heat from Constitutionalists. Rand proved that taking a stand on principle, in spite of the opposition, can be a force for good in the world. Check out this post, "Rand Paul: One person can make a difference"

The meaning of the word Neocon

Do I think Limbaugh is a neocon, certainly no. I think we need to be careful with labels. Now Sen. McCain, Graham, and Lieberman are clearly neocons as their only issue is American dominance around the world. Nothing else really matters.

I would say Limbaugh is a fairly decent fiscal conservative. I have never heard anything to convince me otherwise that he believes in the American free market.

Now, I understand liberty-minded folks like to call someone that disagrees with them a neocon, kinda like a slur. It reminds me of those that throw around the label that Obama is a socialist.

Think there is a danger in the whole label game. Doesn't allow us to honestly look at the whole of ones views and issues.

Do these talking heads support undeclared wars of aggression?

Does any one of them say bring the troops home? Here is the definition of neocon. See if it fits these people:

neoconservatism:

a right-wing tendency that originated amongst supporters of the political left and has become characterized by its support of hawkish foreign policies
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/neo-conservative

Do you know what a neo-con is?

They're conservatives who love war and justify expansion of government. They literally have a bloodlust for war. War isn't cheap, which is what makes neo-cons hypocrites. They're opposed to spending when it's convenient and seem to forget about it when it comes to interventionist wars.

Under the circumstances, Limbaugh fits the bill to a T.

You are partly right but again, not a thourough assessment

You miss the most important point. They really don't care about "conservatism". They certainly aren't conservative, in fact they are mostly nationalistic. Conflict perpetuates their existence.

There is a great documentary on the topic called the Power of Nightmares. I suggest you check it out. I would also read about what Bill Kristol and his father Irving Kristol have laid out as the neocon agenda.

Rush Limbaugh is not part of the Trotsky ideology just as Glenn Beck clearly doesn't understand essential libertarian philosophy. Yes, he believes in American exceptionalism and defense as the core role of the state, no doubt, as is the case with most conservatives. They have had priorities STEERED off the conservative track by the likes of 8 years of Bush polices and sometimes blind support for Republicans as a party but this does not make them ideological Neocons.

You forget how long the true Neocon's found themselves in the wilderness before 9/11. Rush was not singing their praises then and if you are watching the battle in the party now you would see that the Karl Roves of the world are finding themselves at odds with Conservatives that actually care about their rights, the budget, and the failed neocon policies though they might not clearly define it.

Just like many here have been fooled in the past but because of core beliefs and values they've found their way back on the right path.

It is important to tell the difference.

I understand what you're saying, but...

A better understanding of conservatism would be helpful. Perhaps one of the best essays on it is Rothbards' "Why Conservatives Love War and the State." http://www.lewrockwell.com/rothbard/rothbard16.html
