Let me fill you in on something: Limbaugh's web site is loaded with sites where he gets his information from. You can go to his site right now and find the links to what he was talking about today and just about every other day. They are not full of anything. They are correct over 99% of the time. It's why they are number one and liberal outlets eventually fold up after a while. Conservative broadcasting needs not to be supplemented by our US tax dollars like PBS and NPR.<quoted text>
I can't speak for all left wingers, only for myself. The reason I hate Limbaugh and Fox is because they lie pathologically, and present a badly distorted view of America. For whatever reason, people like you believe Limbaugh without question, and thus, you believe a lot of things that are flatly false. Limbaugh and Fox are not "telling the rest of the story" or revealing some hidden truth. They are just shilling for a tiny minority of fanatics who have no interest in anything other than their own wealth and power. And they drag guys like you into it by tricking you into thinking you are being victimized by the "takers".
If Rush Limbaugh walked up to you on the street, and grabbed you by the lapels, and started screaming, "You gotta help the richest one per cent increase their wealth! You have to!" you would probably tell him to get off of you, and that increasing some rich guy's wealth isn't your problem. And you would of course be right to do so.
So Limbaugh takes a different approach. He identifies those whom he sees as being in the way of increasing his and his other one percenters' wealth, and he tells you that that person is "taking" something from YOU, and the only way to combat that evil "taker" is by listening to Rush and voting Republican.
Why you guys fall for that, I can't explain.
What Rush preaches is for people to create their own wealth. Taking wealth from somebody is not limiting their ability to create wealth. They can still create wealth, it's just that government wants more and more of it to support the non-producers in our society and idiotic spending. Nobody really minds paying taxes if the tax money is being used in a productive way and not vote buying like Solyndra, Cowboy poetry and The Arts. That's where people get upset.
