Is Rush Limbaugh Helping or Hurting Republicans and Conservatism?

    

Is el Rushbo helping the GOP and conservatism with his bellicose grabbing for power and his insistence upon obeisiance from powerful GOP leaders?

He has forced numerous GOP elected officials to recant and apologize after they dissed him. The Obama admin is embellishing his role as leader of the Republican party. 

Is Limbaugh helping or hurting the GOP cause? He may be claiming to be helping stand up for conservatism. But is he? Or is he helping the Democrats by showing how angry and unreasonable right wingers really are, and how they are lacking in leadership, principles and the courage to take a stand?

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
