LIMBAUGH: “Democrats Don’t Want Individuals Prospering If Government Isn’t Involved”

RUSH: Now, we had a caller earlier this week who basically asked me in his own words why the Democrats are not interested in supporting policies that would make their voters more prosperous. And I had an answer. The answer is the same thing today as it was then and it’s gonna be the same thing next year. The Democrats don’t want individuals prospering if government isn’t involved. The Democrat Party has built a political party around identity and victimhood. As many people as they can make into victims, they do.

Once you, as a Democrat, or as a voter, as a human being. Once you believe yourself to be a victim, then you immediately no control over your life, by definition. When you’re a victim, everything that happens to you is somebody’s fault. Everything that happens to you is outside your control. You’re helpless! You’re a victim. You’re a victim of evil Republicans, evil capitalists, evil what have you. The Democrats position themselves as the saviors of all of these identity groups and victims.

And if there is prosperity to be had, if there are rising standards of living, it better be traceable to government. It better be traceable to a government program. It better be traceable to something the Democrats say they’re responsible for or it doesn’t count. The bottom line is the Democrats don’t want their voters — other than the super-rich donors in Hollywood and New York. But the average, ordinary Democrat voter, Democrats don’t want ’em to prosper unless it’s because have a government program or government action that’s directly traceable to the Democrat Party.

That reality just stuns me. Why would a political party actively want to sit out on this kind of excitement? Now, I understand. We want to sit out the things that make them excited. But the things that make them excited are not beneficial to us. The things that excite them are punitive to us! The things that excite them end up harming us, primarily by virtue of the growth of government and the loss of little individual bits of liberty and freedom here and there.

Such things as versus climate change to net neutrality. Whatever the issue that can grow government, whatever the issue that can give government more control over everything in the country, because individuals can’t be trusted with it. Well, we don’t sidle up to that and we don’t want to be part of that because that’s injurious to us. But this isn’t injurious to anybody. Keeping more of what you earn is not injurious!

It doesn’t hurt you. It doesn’t damage you. Encouraging prosperity, promoting liberty, promoting self-reliance, rugged individualism, promoting the pursuit of happiness doesn’t hurt anybody. But in the Democrat world it does. In the Democrat world, that’s a nonstarter. So in the midst of all of this outpouring of happiness and encouragement and excitement over the tax cut, what do we get from the Democrats? That they’re gonna win the House in 2018 ’cause of this!

They’re gonna win the House ’cause people don’t like this and they’re gonna win the House ’cause,. “We hate Trump! People hate Trump! Trump’s hatred.” You know, I think you people better look again because I don’t think that the country sees Donald Trump today the way they saw him nine months ago, and I don’t think they see him at all the way you do. You better make tracks on getting with it ’cause you’re about to be left behind in a gigantic stampede. I should shut up and not give them any heads up.
