I have listened to Rush Limbaugh on the radio for 30 years. I have studied what Rush has to say. My files contain over 6,500 Rush segments, which I keep organized in a note-taking application. I tag each one according to its main subject. My new book, Rush Limbaugh – A Tribute, is a result of that effort.
The project began in November 2019 after a caller shared with Rush what he had learned over the years. Tribute started as a letter. I put the book together between September and December 2020. I published it on January 10, 2021, with an update on February 17, 2021, the day Kathryn announced that Rush had passed away.
Rush taught us about America and how to preserve her as founded. He explained how to defend the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution against people who want to destroy them. He exposed America's enemies, foreign and domestic. Through his website, he continues to do so.
Rush Limbaugh – A Tribute is not a book about Rush. It is a book about what Rush taught over the years. He is the reason for much of what I think about conservatism versus the left, which I hoped to express in words that honor his life without making him responsible for my conclusions.
Rush told us to share what he taught with others, using our own words. Rush Limbaugh – A Tribute was that opportunity for me. It also gave me a chance to retell stories Rush told only a few times during his career, stories I thought would warm your heart the way they do mine—stories about his family, Kathryn, The Incredible Adventures of Rush Revere, his profound faith in God, and more.
The book is also meant to be a small reference. It summarizes Rush’s most important thoughts about America, her founding, liberty, and how to defend them. Read the book in that light as you review and remember what Rush taught on many important subjects. Learning to defend Rush conservatism is what he would want most from us, for the God he served and the country he loved.
This website, TributeToRush.com, like the book, is meant to be an expression of why we, Rush’s loyal listeners, continue to be grateful for Rush and what he taught about liberty and freedom during 33 years of broadcast excellence. This site means to carry the message forward, to help Hillsdale College and other freedom-loving institutions and people save America as founded the way Rush hoped we would.
For a weekly review of what Rush taught over the years, see “Segment Notes” on Mondays and “Rush Revere Notes” on Thursdays. And feel free to leave comments about what you learned from Rush over the years. Let’s keep the ball rolling!
From the back cover: “I’m an average American with only one credential for writing this book: I love Rush and what he teaches about preserving America as founded. I suspect that my experience with his award-winning radio program is similar to yours, and I hope this book reflects a shared feeling of gratitude for Rush and what he means to America.”
