R.I.P., Rush Limbaugh

I am very sorry to report that Rush Limbaugh, 70, has died of cancer. We have lost a champion of the conservative cause.

As one of El Rushbo’s 40 million listeners, going back several decades, I learned a lot from him. I think the biggest eye-opener I got from him was the realization that government has no money of its own and creates no wealth on its own: it has only the wealth that we, the American people, create by working for it. Government can’t “give” anybody anything; it can only take from some to award to others–and very seldom justly, or wisely. Thank you for that insight, Rush.

We are at a perilous juncture in our nation’s history, and to lose Mr. Limbaugh now is to lose much.

But we still have our prayers, and I take some comfort from the thought that as his life drew to a close, Rush learned to lean more and more upon the everlasting arms of Jesus Christ Our Lord. I hope there’s another microphone waiting for him in Christ’s Kingdom.

Instructed by the Holy Spirit, Isaiah wrote, “The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.” (Isaiah 57: 1-2)

I pray we aren’t there yet, and that the Savior will deliver us from the snares of the ungodly. But if we are, then I pray the Lord will give us faith, courage, strength, endurance, and wisdom. Because we shall need it, every drop of it.

  1. That is sad news. It was no different in the days of Samuel the prophet, when the people of Israel asked him to anoint for them a king. He was unhappy, but God told him to go ahead and give them what they wanted, but let them know that a king will only take from them everything they valued. They insisted, and they got their first king, Saul, and it turned out just as God told them it would. People haven’t changed one iota since those days.

  2. Rush was certainly a clarion voice for true conservative values. He seemed to be able to keep from being dragged dow to the level of those who hated him. I certainly learned a thing or two from him.

    1. Leftist trolls are already showing up in the comments boxes of conservative websites.

      I’ve been getting Rush’s monthly “Limbaugh Letter” in the mail for years, and thank goodness I saved some of them even when I downsized. One of the most important things about him was his determined optimism in the face of what he rightly saw as attempts to destroy our Nation. His optimism in the face of evil gave people courage to fight the evil and laugh at it instead of hiding from it or bowing to it. He was one of the great conservative voices of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, along with Walter Williams (also recently deceased) and Thomas Sowell.
