You keep doing what you are doing and you will keep getting what you are getting. Listening to Rush is a waste of time.

I have better suggestion. That all those really worry about Iran's nuclear program should themselves or their sons/daughters go for special military divisions to fight their "nightmare". Just don't send our sons/daughters to fight on THEIR BEHALF.

Normally, Claudhopper and I are on different sides of the issues, but I agree 100% with him here. The simplistic Bought-and-paid-for by-military-contractors mentality that Iran simply wants to go to war with us because "They=Bad Guys and We=Good Guys" which most of the field is more than willing to buy into is simply wrong. The issue, like so many others, is far more complex than that, and us charging off half-cocked and high on jingoistic patriotic fervor is what cost so many lives and dollars both in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sometimes the US, just like each of us as individuals often do, is responsible for creating its own problems. If we don't strive to take away lessons learned from these situations, than Paul is right and we are already lost.

I would chip-in to send that plane over to Iran. If they know how to solve this problem, I would love to see them do it.

We just have to make sure we're only sending those that believe in bombing Iran preemptively. We will not discriminate, if you have a disability or you're too old, no problem, everyone that wants to go, can go!

Just call in on "open mike Friday's" and tell Rush why he is wrong. Tell him listeners are sick and tired of him toting the water for the GOP RINO powers that be!

If you tune out Rush wins. If you correct Rush on air others may follow.

A decrease in listeners means that Rush will win? Bizzaro world.

The sweet irony of a draft dodging drug addict criticizing a GOP rep and presidential candidate because he is not blood thirsty enough to start another war of choice that will cost more American lives and increase government spending.

Rush and his ilk disgust me, they want perpetual wars as long as they can make other people fight it for them. It seems like the only deficit spending that the GOP and Teapublicans don't complain about is the dollars spent on bombing and killing people all over the globe.

Rush screeners make sure no Ron Paul people get on the air for a reason.
