Define conservative government
RUSH: I interviewed Mark Steyn, occasional guest host of this program. He's got a new book out. I interviewed him last week for the next issue of The Limbaugh Letter. And we got to talking. He had made a statement that I needed him to explain. I needed some clarification. He said, "You cannot have a conservative government with a liberal culture." I wanted to know if he meant that literally or if he meant it in some other context, because clearly if the Republicans win the presidency in 2016, we're going to have, maybe not a conservative, but we're going to have somebody who is not liberal as president in a liberal culture. And by definition that will be a, let's say, Republican government.
Now, I know the bureaucracy is populated with career leftists. But we're speaking theoretically here. The point he was trying to make was it doesn't matter. If we don't change the culture, we're never really going to change anything. We can have all the conservative presidents we want and if that doesn't mean or translate to or result from a change in the culture, the culture remains dominantly liberal. Pop culture, entertainment, all that. News business culture, if that doesn't change, then the two can't go together. Meaning there's no way that a conservative or Republican president is going to tame liberals who oppose him.
So I brought up Reagan. And I said, "How would you explain that?" That was a dominant liberal culture then, because it always has been, and yet Reagan won two landslides. He reminded me of something that I didn't need to be reminded of. Reagan was still hated and reviled and all that, that's true, but Reagan still won two landslides. We never got rid of the Department of Education, but we did cut taxes and made some inroads and got sensible policies on a lot of things. There were Reagan Democrats. There were Democrats leaving the party and becoming Republicans.
Now, the culture still despised Reagan, but we had an effective conservative president in the midst of a liberal culture. And if what Steyn had said was literally true, that you cannot have a conservative government with a liberal culture, then what do you have, what is the purpose of a conservative/Republican winning the presidency, if it simply can't co-exist with a dominant liberal culture?
With that thought in my mind, I ran across an opinion piece at a blog site, a website called Talking Points Memo headed up by some guy named Joshua Micah Marshall.gold near rhymes gold nest of tables gold heart next to name on tinder gold diamond next to name tinder gold heart next to tinder match white gold next to silver white gold next to platinum gold star next to name on snapchat gold icon next to tinder name gold of ophir gold of america tour gold of kinabalu orchid gold of uphaz gold of the gods gold of parvaim gold of the amazon women gold of the seven saints gold off the shoulder dress gold off road wheels gold off white air force 1 gold off white gold off the shoulder top gold off the shoulder gown gold off white dunks gold off road rims gold on periodic table gold on the ceiling lyrics gold on your fingertips gold on the ceiling meaning gold on grand gold on mars gold on food gold opposite of opposite of gold digger opposite of gold color opposite of gold standard opposite of gold colour opposite of gold in english opposite of gold metal opposite of gold in hindi gold out football game gold out outfits gold out el paso gold out theme gold out football gold out ideas gold out shirt gold out game gold outdoor lights gold outside door handles gold outdoor lantern gold outdoor table gold outdoor christmas lights gold outdoor paint gold outdoor pillows gold outdoor sconce gold over america tour merchandise gold over america tour chicago gold over america tour reviews gold over america tour denver gold over america tour houston gold past life gold past present future ring gold past life lyrics gold past life fruit bats gold last name gold last supper gold last 10 years gold last supper pendant gold pro max gold pro max 13 gold pro max 12 gold pro camera gold pro scooter golf pro shop gold pro 13 gold pro flat iron gold since 2000 gold since 1971 gold since 1900 gold since 2008 gold science name gold since gold since 2005 gold since 2004 gold through the fire gold through the trees gold through the fire movie gold through fire bible verse gold through the fire bible gold through airport security gold through sgb gold through emi gold thru axle thru in golf gold price thru the years buy gold thru bank gold bond thru sbi buy gold thru vanguard gold pull thru earrings drive thru gold coast gold till death do us part lyrics gold till death ring gold till förtält teal and gold gold price till diwali 2020 gold rate till date gold price till date gold price till december 2020 gold to usd gold to silver ratio gold to coronado gold to coronado crossword gold to platinum 5e gold to dollar gold to silver ratio chart gold to silver 5e gold attracted towards gold rush towards gold asteroid coming towards earth attitude towards gold steps towards gold perception towards gold loan is gold attracted to anything what element is gold attracted to gold under armour cleats gold under microscope gold under the vatican gold under armour shoes gold under world trade center gold under black light gold under armour shirt gold underneath twin towers gold underneath the vatican gold underneath world trade center underneath gold rose gold underneath hair gold plating underneath there is gold underneath a man's knees was gold stored in the twin towers until gold was discovered hammering gold until it becomes flat gold coast until 1957 green and gold until the club is sold green and gold until i'm dead and cold green and gold until the club is sold meaning green and gold until we are sold when was gold first discovered gold up in my teeth gold up usa gold up in my teeth lyrics gold up or down gold up screens gold up today gold up in my teeth song gold up in my chain gold versus silver gold versus bitcoin gold versus platinum gold versus inflation gold versus versace watch gold versus s&p 500 gold versus brass gold versus platinum amex gold via mail wow gold via gold via roma via gold max via gold metal detector via gold dedektör via gold dedektör fiyatları via gold dedektör yorumları golf with friends golf with your friends gold with no markings gold with diamonds gold with matthew mcconaughey gold with silver golf with friends crossplay gold with diamond necklace gold within or sun above gold within 5000 gold within 10000 gold within gold within 2000 gold necklace within 50000 gold necklace within 2 lakhs gold necklace within 1 lakh gold without the a gold without borders gold without stamp gold without nickel gold without the a meaning gold without hallmark gold without markings gold without making charges agolde agolde jeans agolde riley agolde 90s jeans
