Rush Limbaugh’s Emotional Sign Off – Reclaiming America

Rush Limbaugh’s Emotional Sign Off

If there has been anyone in America who has tried to preserve and promote traditional American values throughout the course of his career, it’s Rush Limbaugh. Yesterday, he signed off his broadcast for the rest of the year with a very emotional program.

As recounted by Gateway Pundit, “Rush Limbaugh signed off his radio show Wednesday afternoon with a moving thank you to his listeners, capping an emotion-filled show that featured Rush reminiscing about his radio career and family as well as the news of the day. Rush even spoke about he feels a bit like a failure because he has not persuaded more people away from liberalism. But the heart of the show was Rush’s gratitude at surviving the year after being diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Rush said at one point today he finally understood what New York Yankees legend Lou Gehrig meant when he said, “I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth” after he was diagnosed with a fatal illness in 1939 that cut short his baseball career.

“Rush traditionally takes a long break over Christmas and New Year’s, usually returning the first workday after January 1, which this time will occur later than usual on Monday, January 4. While Rush did not say this was his last show, many listeners had the feeling it might be.

In the lead up to the sign off in the video below, Rush said:

You don’t have any idea how… I know so many people think this program has changed their lives for the better. You have no idea what you all have meant to me and my family. The day’s gonna come a day, folks, where I’m not gonna be able to do this. I don’t know when that is. I want to be able to do it for as long as I want to do it.

“I want to, but the day will come where I’m not going to be able to, and I want you to understand that even when the day comes, I’d like to be here. ‘Cause I have this sense of needing to constantly show my appreciation for all that you have done and meant to me. So I hope you all have a great Christmas, a great new year, and I hope that the things that are in store for all of us in the coming year are certainly better than what we have endured in 2020.”

    I’ve ALWAYS loved Rush. I pray that our Lord Jesus Christ will lay His hands upon this man and heal him. The patriots of, what used to be, the greatest nation on earth, will lose a man whose voice was for ALL true American Patriots. I will miss him dearly. But I’m not giving up hope. There’s NOTHING that GOD ALMIGHTY CAN’T DO!!! But I have to acknowledge that HIS will be done in Rush’s life. And if God wants to call him home, than he’ll be in PARADISE. But please continue to pray that God will allow him to stay with us awhile longer.

    Rush Limbaugh promulgated traditional American values that have made this country great. President Trump has also focused on similar values. Yet the
    liberals have focused not on values (responsibility, love of country, etc.
    In Cleveland, we have a group that wants to rename the city “KINDLAND’ If so,
    why will we need police in Kindland? Here is where feelings over rule traditional values. Does anyone believe that Joe Biden did not know or benefit
    from his son’s and brother’s criminal acts? Yet, because Joe “appears” kind
    and quiet, people voted against Trump’s (and Rush’s) American values!!!!

  3. While waiting for a girlfriend I heard you on the radio from Sacramento and have been listening ever since. Your commentary was rewarding and always will be. God Bless you Rush, America will always thank you, today, tomorrow, forever. You are my choice for President of these United States of America, none other.

  4. Terry Jon Martin says:

    A great AMERICAN who loves America and it’s people. Thank you for your tremendous contribution to this great country and its people.

  5. Lorene says:

    Rush, you have been a blessing in my life. I look forward to hearing you everyday. May you receive God’s blessings every day, Merry Christmas.

  6. Thank you, Rush, for the Great American that you are. I began listening to you after visiting my son in VA in the early ’80’s, became a subscriber to your newsletter until I became a widow 8 years ago and had to cut back on expenses. My son purchased every tie you manufactured and still wears them. When my husband died our other three son’s shared his collection of Rush neck ties and wear them often. I have copies of every one of your TV shows – so funny and typical RUSH. Looking forward to being able to afford your set of books for my great-grandson. They will be the only source for the truth about the founding of our great country.
    May God bless, heal and keep you fighting for the United States. You are loved by a grateful nation.

    Rush, I am a 77 year old woman who would give the rest of her days for you to keep on being able to speak for us. You are our voice of reason, our sanity, our most consistent and persistent earthly encourager. My husband and I pray for you daily and will continue to do so!

  8. Edna Parent says:

    Dear Rush, I have listened to you since ,1986, I believe. We were driving along & you came on the station, i have been listening ever since, you made my day. I am so sorry to know you are so sick, but it makes it all that easier knowing you know the, LORD JESUS as Your Saviour. May the LORD keep on blessing you & wife.
    Sincerely , EAP. Thanks for all you have done.

  9. Fred Behling says:

    Ronald Reagan was one of our greatest American Presidents, and as he left office, another truly great American, Rush Limbaugh, carried on where President Reagan’s vision of the “Shining City On The Hill”, carries on to this day because of the well earned Medal of Freedom recipient Rush Limbaugh. Rush paved the way for Conservative talk radio, and created the opportunity for many if not all Conservative radio hosts we enjoy today. Rush Limbaugh, you are a giant of an American, you are and always will be a great American Legend! God Bless you Rush!

    • We have been so blessed to have had you speaking to us and for us and guiding us. Your voice of sanity and common sense has been comforting in a time of dishonesty and distrust and out and out hateful speech and actions. There are only a few men and women who have had the courage to stand up for our American values. This is a sad and frightening fact because people like you, Rush , are few and far between. May God bless you and your family and watch over us and our country in your absence.b
      Love having you with us!

    Rush is the embodiment of American values

  11. Eddie Broyles says:

    What a role model. Most of us aspire to be more than we are. Rush accomplished that in spades! Hope to hear again in 2021. If not, I hope to meet you on the other side. God bless and keep you.

  12. Nancy H Allison says:

    Rush, you have brought “common sense” to the politics of today. Thank you for
    your insight. God be with you in the days ahead. God will Bless you in a very special way along with your family. We love you and miss you when you are not
    behind the GOLDEN MIKE. Thank you for what you mean to our country.

  13. William g. Solomon says:

    I have followed Rush since he first started his show. His truth and honesty fit my beliefs from day one. His love for American values should never be questioned. God bless Rush and America.

  14. David Spence says:

    Rush: You’re the Best…

  15. sharon woodie says:

    God Bless you Rush! Love you and Thank you for you wisdom and courage to say what needs to be said”The Truth”.
    You have shown us Love of God and Country ( what it means and looks like). You are always in my Prayers.

  16. bob looper says:

    Breaks my heart. What a great American, whose voice speaks for so many of us who don’t have a voice and aren’t represented by our elected representatives

  17. Always loved Rush hope he and his family have a merry Christmas and pray that he will get well I’ve enjoyed him so much
