63. I don't think it's all that influential. There will always be a left-right political
Edited on Sat Sep-17-11 05:31 PM by Flatulo
spectrum, and even if Rush were to disappear tomorrow, I don't believe the center of gravity would change very much.

There will always be that hard-core 20% at the far left and far right. You're correct that they make noise out of proportion to their numbers, but policy is being made by monied interests, not the rants of extreme elements. The monied interests happen to be right-leaning, but they're not getting their marching orders from Rush - they do what they do for profit.

I believe the road back to more equitable distribution of wealth lies in restoring the business regulations that we used to enforce, and restoring sanity to the tax code.
