RUSH: La Donna in New Windsor, New York, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hello Rush, what an honor.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I wanted to say that I was one of the people that didn’t vote last year. And I’m a good conservative.
RUSH: You mean ’08?
CALLER: I listened to the media. I listened to the polls, and I just got depressed. He’s going to win anyway, why should I vote? And I didn’t go vote. I was not raised that way. I was raised in a good patriotic family. And I just want to stress to listeners how important, and I bet there are a bunch of us out there that sometimes we don’t take the time to vote. And you have to do it this year. It’s imperative.
RUSH: Thank God you said that. What’s changed your mind?
CALLER: What changed my mind? Well, I always knew it. I live in New Windsor now and I drive by the Last Encampment every day to go to the grocery store, Wal-Mart, whatever. It’s always there and I’ve read about it in my school books, and it’s just there. And one day I said, “I’m going to stop here,” and I pulled over and there was just a little sign. It wasn’t an amusement park. It wasn’t all this. You know, you would think it would be Disneyland or Virginia. And nobody was there. Nobody was there. It was empty. And I walked around that place. It was just a couple of cabins. And I tried to remember about the stories that I heard when they didn’t have any shoes, when they were cold. The people 9/11 —
RUSH: No politician had any shoes when he was born.
CALLER: That’s right.
RUSH: There isn’t a politician alive that had shoes. In fact, most politicians are born in some little shack that they built.
CALLER: That’s right. Michelle Obama said his shoes were too small, weren’t they?
RUSH: I’ve got an idea for you, since you didn’t vote in 2008, you should vote twice this time to make up for it.
CALLER: You know what I could probably find a way to do it.
RUSH: I’m sure you could. If you tell them you’re a Democrat.
CALLER: That’s right.
RUSH: Or you’re an illegal immigrant.
CALLER: Yeah. That’s the way to do it.
RUSH: La Donna, thanks.
CALLER: When you walk around that place, I encourage anybody, if you live up here, stop by there and remember the people of 9/11 died innocently. They didn’t have a choice. The several people that picked up their arms, they went to war, they fought, and Benjamin Franklin, I’ll give you a Republic if you can keep it. These people died for us, and you need to remember.
RUSH: How in the hell did you not vote? As fired up as you are, I can’t believe that you didn’t vote. I don’t know how afraid I am. The point of the matter is no matter how ticked off you are at politics in general, if you are ticked off at Romney or ticked off at the Republican Party, it doesn’t matter this time, folks. This is not one of those times where you let them win so everybody can see how bad it is. It’s happening. We don’t need any more proof. We don’t need four more years to open people’s eyes. There’s no reason not to vote this time around. Thanks La Donna.
