Rush Limbaugh Tribute

In honor of Rush's life and legacy, share how the "Great One" impacted your life and our nation....

Rush Limbaugh was one of the nation's leading conservative voices for more than three decades. He championed America's founding ideals of liberty and limited government like few talk-radio hosts ever. On Wednesday, February 17, at the start of "The Rush Limbaugh Show," his wife Kathryn announced that he died from lung cancer at the age of 70.

We're saddened by his passing and what it will mean to the future of the conservative movement in America. But we are grateful for the decades that he served as such a strong voice for this great nation. Please join us in praying for his family and friends during their time of loss.

(Grassfire President Steve Elliott's Tribute.)

Please use this "Rush Tribute" to share how Rush impacted you personally and how grateful you are for the way he has impacted our nation.

    Few have the ability, no less the brass to speak out like Rush Limbaugh. A pillar of strength in a world dissolving in liberal bias, lies and deceit. Rush was a staunch Conservative and because of his ability was able to deliver a conservative message daily to an audience for 3 hours. Deliver it in a strong direct and yet simplified message that rocked the left at their base. I too would always tune in when in the car in the early afternoon and capture moments of this mans message and thoughts. He always came through and made each day so much better. We lost a good man yesterday. God Bless Rush Limbaugh!!

    I will never forget when the country was enamored with Ross Perot. It was almost as how we would imagine the 2nd coming of Christ. I was one of his followers. Then, Rush warned us. Told us there were problems with Mr. Perot . . . and there were. Rush was right as he so often was.

    To paraphrase George Jones, “who’s gonna fill his shoes?” I don’t know anyone else who can explain the unexplainable and clarify the “unclarifyable”. I know that’s not a real word, but Rush would forgive me. The world has lost a most remarkably brilliant, genuine, and downright decent human being. RIP, Rush. Please pray for us.

    Rush was excellent and I listened to him since being in the Navy in 1993 and almost every day since then at least 1 hour a day most days all three. I am a conservative and he guided me to what decisions I make today. He will be sorely missed, God Bless his family and God Bless America.

    Peter Parsi from The Daily Signal wrote this perfect quote. " As for that talent on loan from God? On Wednesday, that loan was paid back in full. Godspeed, Rush Limbaugh.

    Rush was and still will be a voice for common sense conservative thought. My mom who moved on in 2016, loved Rush so much.

    His faith in God has carried him home.

    The first real voice for conservatism I ever heard, Rush was always able to encourage, bring perspective, and give hope to what has become the minority American voice! Godspeed Rush! Prayers and blessings to his family and close friends.

    I am greatly saddened to know that Rush Limbaugh is no longer in this world. All throughout my teenage & young adult years, car rides with my dad meant Rush’s voice filled the air. Hearing what he had to say, & the conversations that occurred between my dad & his friends about Rush’s broadcasts, truly helped to shape my views about politics & motivated me to care about what was happening in our government.

    I’ve enjoyed, as a mom, reading his Rush Revere books to my youngest son. It was fun enjoying the stories together.

    He will truly be missed. I’m praying for his family.

    My husband and I have listened to Rush for 32 years. We discovered him shortly after we were married and made it a point to listen to him each day. Our six children grew up listening to him whenever we drove anywhere. In the crazy raising children years, the days of listening would be aporadic. But his Spatula City and Snapple moments made us laugh, and his insights and explanations of the world and political climate gave us hope amidst what would have been very dark days, indeed. I am so grateful he knew the Lord Jesus as his personal Savior and was unashamed to share that during this past year. We will see him again. My heart is so sad for we, the Americans he loved so much and left behind. May we never forget what he taught us. Blessings on your family, Rush. You will be missed.

    Rush showed me that I WAS a conservative and how very much I did not know. He showed by example that I did not need to be quiet or afraid because I am a true son of the Republic. He’s gonna be missed so much.

    A beacon of hope in a sometime difficult to understand climate! Thankful for his hard work and common sense to teach truth. Thankful for his love and desire to keep America and freedom for everyone.

    Thank You to Rush for ALL he did to educate so many! Teaching the masses what it meant to be Conservative, and a Proud Citizen of the Greatest Country in the History of Our Planet! My Mother Lois Luallen, was an even bigger fan than me. She rarely missed a daily broadcast from 2007 when she retired, until her homegoing in 2019. Another huge fan of Rush was my Father in Law David Finley. Thank You Rush, for being such a steadfast patriot, and defender of truth…

    Raised and indoctrinated in liberal world view, a co-worker encouraged me to listen to Rush on the radio. Rush gave me my first taste of conservatism and was my encouragement to think and learn about conservative ideals. I am thankful for that and have become a steadfast conservative and patriot. His boldness in sharing his beliefs has been an inspiration in my life.

    I will miss my friend very much. I missed him in KC when he was on the Royals, or at our favorite steak house. I missed him here in Florida; but I seldom missed his EIB show. What a guy. I will continue to miss my friend. So long old friend.

    There are no words to express the loss of Rush. He was an answer to prayer as every liberal talk show host that I ran across on the radio cut people off the phone the moment that they said that they were a Christian, conservative or pro-life. I prayed that God would give us somebody that conservatives, Christians, and pro-life people would have a voice, and not be hung up on, and God sure answered that prayer. Rush had a voice that nobody could beat. The first time that I heard Rush, he was talking about saving the lives of babies. I was thinking, “Who is this?”, because I had never heard anybody talk that way on the radio, and I found out that it was Rush Limbaugh (1991). There will never be another Rush, and as the title of the book someone wrote states, “Rush Limbaugh: An Army of one”. He was a one man show, and genuine of heart. He always gave us hope, and was upbeat, regardless of how hopeless the situation looked. He was one of a kind, and will be sorely missed.
