I've just finished reading about how many of the conservative talk radio shows are showing a steep decline in ratings. It is no surprise to me as I have completely stopped listening to these shows even for some of their entertainment value. Conservative talk radio shows give the impression that there is something that people can do politically that will help improve the living conditions of everyone in the country. However, we will see that conservative talk radio is just another pathetic attempt to compromise any political opposition. This is done by putting Marxists or socialists in leadership positions and then painting "conservative" on them giving the people the perception that there really is some political opposition. Whether you listen to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levine, or Michael Savage, the end result will always be a failed opposition because it was designed that way. In the United States, there is no such thing as a true political opposition. It is all controlled by the other side and no matter how conservative or how radical one may seem to be, there is always someone in every group that will sell out their principles for whatever reason.
One of the worse pieces of legislation to come along in a long time was NAFTA--North American Free Trade Agreement. So-called conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity were in favor of it. However, this agreement could have been written by Karl Marx. To me, Limbaugh and Hannity are socialists even though they would deny it. The thing is that these so-called conservatives embraced these socialist ideas and as a result our economic strength collapsed and over 42,000 factories left the United States for other foreign countries with a less expensive labor base. This was approved of by almost all of the "conservative" commentators and I finally weened myself off of listening to them because I understand that they provided a false hope of constructive change to the system. The proof is in the failure. Hannity and Limbaugh advocated this stupid trade agreement and now they are going to start paying the price, especially since the Republican party refuses to field a real conservative candidate; not that it would help. And perhaps the reason is that the state as we know it today is an utter failure in terms of keeping us out of wars, producing good economies, and establishing a moral society. The state is nothing more than a small group of people who want to steal from others so that they don't have to do real work. The conservative talk radio hosts are facilitators in putting up a false opposition so that the fraud can continue.
But now their ratings are going down the toilet, and deservedly so. How many times can anyone listen to their ideas but see no meaningful change or action? That would be like going to a football game knowing that one team is always going to win. Over seventy five percent of Americans call themselves conservative but yet a socialist in one form or fashion always seems to get into the White House. In my view, the political system is so corrupted that I don't believe that it ever had any value because the people who run it are almost completely insane. But it is the conservative talk radio that helps to keep the socialists going by providing a false hope that someone is going to fix the problem. The problem never gets solved and the next day it is business as usual. Listening to any political shows is a waste of time and always has been a complete loss of valuable time. Why listen to losers? Politicians are losers even if they are winners because at the end of the day they insist on stealing the labor of working people to promote their psychotic agenda.
I'm not surprised that their ratings are going down the dumpster. If anything, I'm surprised that it took so long. I would have thought that a few years after NAFTA that their whole agenda would collapse. However, for whatever reason, their ratings continued to grow but I don't believe that these ratings slide will subside. I believe that some of these shows are going to be cancelled because they simply don't have the trust of the American people. I'm hoping the people are seeing through the false conservative presentation and they are seeing it for what it is: just another socialist scam masquerading as something it is not. Controlled opposition is what really happens in American politics. If political leaders start thinking for themselves, they either get ridiculed or assassinated.
I have completely weened myself off of conservative talk radio. It is all show but no go. I used to listen to it when I had nothing else better to do as I was interested in it, but anymore, I just can't even stand the thought of a Republican, Democrat, and even the Constitution. They are all words with no action. Nothing from the political processes produces any benefit to the American people as it is only a scam to drain the hard work and labor from the people who are the producers. The government is just a group of suckers who don't do anything that is useful, but they do it at the most expensive price they can get. As a former businessman, I look at the results. These talk show produce no meaningful results and we have the most socialistic government in world history. So the conservative talk show pundits have promoted the socialist agenda and they certainly don't serve the American people. Some of them are entertaining, but that's like listening to a band on the deck of the Titanic.
The problem is that there are very few moral principles that are associated with government. Without strong moral principles, no society can survive let alone have a peaceful existence. Listening to anything political is a complete waste of time and it can even have the unwanted effect of lowering the intelligence of the hearer. Maybe some "conservative" people are beginning to figure it out.
