President Trump is moving toward his 2024 candidacy as per all indications from his enlightening address to the NC GOP on June 5, 2021. Considering this political vector as a distinct possibility: What is your electoral pleasure as an integral cog in this Representative Republic?
Rush Limbaugh,"with talent on loan from God",has gone on to meet his Maker.
One of my living heroes, Rush Limbaugh, is now dead of Lung Cancer at 70 years of age.
Even though Rush broadcasted from South Florida, his latter day home /workplace - his "Southern Command", he hailed from Cape Girardeau, Missouri, the near the center of America, and it was this center of OUR America approach to his philosophy of life, his understanding of real people - that blend of where Southerner morphs into the Midwesterner. That is who he was, and that is who he spoke for, and guess what: The wisest people in America loved him, his overwhelming talent of pure wisdom.
A college dropout after a brief blush with higher education, Rush Limbaugh was one of the smartest and wisest people in whatever room he entered, and Rush walked into some pretty big rooms; rooms full of past presidents, scientists, philosophers, dignitaries of every stripe, geniuses of every knowledge; Rush was their equal, and those that were truly smart and wise knew it.
Fellow Talk Radio luminary, and all-round-brilliant-guy Mark Levin, tearfully, eulogized Rush Limbaugh as 'one of the most, if not the most brilliant, patriotic people, and above all generous men I have ever known'.
Even Rush himself, from the near beginning of his long illustious career in broadcast journalism, would state unequivocally at the beginning of many of his programs, "This is Rush Limbaugh, with talent on loan from God." How true, how very true.
Furhtermore, how appropriate today that President Trump called into FOX News shortly after the press release of the ultimate demise of this Talk Radio super talent to express his condolences, his sadness. From the more than 100 years of "The Wireless"'s historical existence, there was no greater talent, and how apropriate for this great President to sing the praises of this wise, and often hilarious mega talent that became the President's close friend at a time when Mr. Trump needed such a skilled advoicate for real truth, which was in short supply in the spreading dank Swamp of D.C.

Rush Limbaugh, as the venerable genius of all essential honesty and politicians that exhibit such, has always been an outstanding judge of political horseflesh coupled with his foresight to know those government leaders who have that rare ability to truly make the defining difference. Rush recognized that evolving talent in the 2015 political neophyte - Donald J. Trump. As was Rush's political pattern during the primary, he never picked a favorite Republican, although it was apparent that he had his favorites. One of those favorites early in the 2015 Primary season was a totally inexperienced Donald Trump, and for whatever reason, he saw something special in Mr. Trump.
Understanding that all politics /governing are local, Rush professed to know "grass roots" politics as well as most, and in my opinion he knew grass roots politics better than anyone; Rush understood that grass roots politics, at its core, was the championing of ideas that were bigger than the individual, or a class of individuals, by espousing the perfect truth that correct set of ideas, and durable ideals that lifted us all - the entirity of our Republic - and that is what may be meant by the perfect phrase "perfect union".
Ask yourself this: Was Donald Trump's candidacy shaped by Rush Limbaugh, and once elected, did Rush's guidance and friendship help President Trump navigate some truly tumultuous waters? Granted that Donald J. Trump was an enigma of performance, but to what extent did this Radio Journalist extroidinare fortify the truth that sustained Mr. Trump in a Sea of Liars swimming in their purposeful propagandist lies, and for the entirety of the President's fourth years of service to the beat America's People?
Think about it ... and then say goodbye to this good man, and this great American patriot.
