Radio host Rush Limbaugh's rant has gone viral since it was aired on Thursday, with the commentator discussing Obama's alleged strategy to use fear to influence the public into, basically, getting what he wants.

“Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life I am ashamed of my country,” Limbaugh said on his Thursday show. Posted above is an audio from the conservative segment.

According to Wikipedia, the Rush Limbaugh Show is the highest-rated talk-radio program in the U.S. The host speaks of baseline budgeting and how America is spending too much.

“We just keep spending more money, we create more dependency, we get more and more irresponsible one crisis to the next, all of them manufactured. Except for the real crisis that nobody ever addresses and that is we can’t afford it,” he says.

He hints that the economic crisis is a manufactured one, as the U.S. goes through crisis after crisis, without ever changing spending habits.

“There is no real cut below a baseline of zero. There just isn’t. And yet here they come, sucking us in, roping us in. Panic here. Fear there. Crisis. Destruction. No meat inspection. No cops. No teachers. No firefighters. No air traffic control,” he adds.
