Words of Wisdom from Rush Limbaugh

This excerpt was brought to my attention on Monday...some great insights here!

Read the entire portion here.

RUSH: It's a big day today if you have an Apple iPhone. It's also a big day today if you're unemployed. If you're unemployed President Barack Obama says that the fastest way to get you a job is to nationalize health care, single-payer health care. Now, let me ask those of you who are unemployed. Let me amend that. Those of you who are unemployed who don't want to be, those of you who are unemployed who want a job and you turn on the television or the radio and you hear President Obama says he's thinking about you. The recession is a bit worse than what he knew because he inherited such a mess, but there's a fast fix for this, and that is health care. We gotta get health care spending in line; that will enable you to find a job.

Is that going to make you confident? How soon do you think national health care is going to happen, even if they succeed in passing it? How soon will it be implemented? Do you want to wait a year for a job? And, by the way, the dirty little secret: if they succeed with national health care as Obama and the Democrats want it, you face the prospect of being joined on the unemployment line by even more people because the incentive for businesses that will be mandated with providing it will be to fire people in order stay in business, in order to stay in business, they're going to have to lay off more people. Now, anybody with a brain knows this. It's time to start asking, what does Obama really want with all of these programs of his?

What is he really trying to accomplish? Is he really trying to put you back to work? Is he really trying to create jobs in a thriving, growing private sector economy? Because if he is, he's the biggest idiot on the face of the earth. Because this is not how you do it. If he is trying to do it and he's not a big idiot, he's doing it on purpose. And if he's doing it on purpose, we need to then ask: Why? For what purpose would President Obama want to destroy the private sector economy? For what purpose would Barack Obama want to destroy free market economics. Well, there's always the old saw that he wants to return the nation's wealth to its "rightful owners." Some have speculated he wants an ever-expanding welfare state with more and more average, middle-class people on the government dole because that's government dominance. That's control. That's statism. I, for one, don't think he's stupid.

I think he's been poorly educated, I think he's angry and cold. But IQ-wise he's not stupid. He's been told. He has been told things as he's grown up and been educated, that make the difference between him and Mikhail Gorbachev scant. They both believe in command-control economies, because capitalism is unfair. It's unjust. It's immoral. And he's going to straighten that out. Folks, this is dire, what is happening here. We are down to the wire on stopping this. I'm not saying it can't be rolled back at some point down the road but if they get national health care that's going to be tough to undo -- and national health care is the single biggest intervention in liberty this government could conceive. Because every aspect of your life can be regulated on the theory that it will control costs of health care.
