The debt that conservative Americans owe to Rush Limbaugh can only be repaid by relentless imitation of his example. Every day, his optimism, his humor and his insights gave courage to conservatives to stand up for what we believe in; to stand firm for a strong national defense, limited government, life and liberty. Now it’s our turn. For all of us who came after him, who were inspired by his love for this country and the American people, our debt to him is to fight on.

Rush Limbaugh lived the American dream. He believed in this country and in the boundless potential of every American. He believed, as I do, that the best days for America are yet to come. And when they come, that boundless future will be built on a foundation that Rush Limbaugh helped to pour. 

There will never be another Rush Limbaugh. He will never be forgotten and his legacy will live on for generations in the hearts of the millions of Americans he inspired. The Bible says that “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted” and that will continue to be our prayer for his wife Kathryn, his family, friends and faithful listeners in our loss. God bless Rush Limbaugh.
