Dear Editor:

With the passing of the great Rush Limbaugh on Feb. 17, my wife and I discussed our listening to Rush that evening over the past 30-plus years. I compared Rush and President Trump as the pair of bookends defining patriotism and the conservative, liberty-loving Constitutional Republic. Many others share similar values in between these two stellar conservatives, but now Rush is the bookend solidly against the wall defining the right — politically and at least 98 percent reliably materially correct.

I expected some on the left to try to diminish his achievements; they did not diminish his agenda; they only appeared little in their own rites. Rush and President Trump shared many of the solid conservative foundation values that we conservatives live. A smaller, more responsive government, reduced taxes, individual responsibility, a strong national pride, law and order and equal justice for all are but a few of these values we have in common.

What some may not understand, while Rush is no longer on the radio, and President Trump is not currently our commander- in-chief, their legacies and their messages thrive. Conservatives will prevail — only because there is no other choice if this nation is to survive as a Constitutional Republic. We do not support those trying to destroy our country, and we will live by oaths of office to defend this country against all enemies foreign and domestic.
