All week, Glenn has been tackling the problems in America and giving viewers and listeners tangible steps they can take in order to turn things around. On radio this morning, he took a hard look at how out of control regulation has become in this country and how small government people are getting ready to turn back the tide.
"Let me see if I understand America in the right perspective as the way the left sees it. You can't have a lemonade stand. You can't have a yard sale without a permit. You can't have a bake sale. You can't have certain fatty foods. Better not have that. You can't smoke outside. If you're an Amish farmer, you'll be ‑‑ you'll be rated for selling unauthorized milk. You can't buy gas‑guzzling cars, you can't have your kids hug somebody at school, or if you're at school and a kid is crying, you can't hug them. You can't buy certain amounts of soda if you're in New York City. A lunch consisting of turkey and cheese, a banana, apple, apple juice and potato chip doesn't ‑‑ and this is an exact quote ‑‑ doesn't meet U.S. Department of Agricultural guidelines, end quote, and thus it is confiscated by the school," Glenn said.
"We now have the Federal Register, which is the government regulations, that book, if you can call it that, is 80,000 pages long."
"We can't have a civil conversation in this country about drilling," he said. "If you have that conversation, 'Why do you hate the beaches so much? Why do you hate the fish so much? Why do you hate the sky? Why do you hate the Earth? Why do you hate the planet so much? Why are you disrupting the mating habits of the caribou?'"
"You argue against financial regulation and you're in bed with the fat cats in Wall Street. You argue against affirmative action and what are you? You're nothing but a racist."
"Everything we have in our society, nothing makes sense anymore. And everything we try to argue divides us."
"America's tired. I don't know about you. I'm exhausted. I'm tired of arguing. Man, I hate this. I'm not Bill O'Reilly. Bill O'Reilly, he loves the argument. He loves to mix it up. He goes on David Letterman and he loves it. The more they hate him, the more he loves it. I'm not that guy."
Despite how tired Americans are and how it seems like the light at the end of the tunnel will never come, Glenn said that we;re just going through the cycles of a movement and one of those cycles is the feeling like you've failed.
"We're there. We are at the finish line. We are truly at the finish line. We're winning," Glenn said.
"Did you see what happened in Wisconsin? There weren't any ‑‑ while they're saying the Tea Party is dead, really? Is it? Tell that to Governor Walker. The Tea Party's not dead. Tell that to the people ‑‑ tell that to the people in Indiana. Tell that to the people in Texas. Tell that to the people in election after election after election. We're just not marching in the streets anymore. We outorganized the left and the labor unions in progressive Wisconsin. That is such an amazing fact."
"You won, against the labor unions and the ACORN people. The people who do this for a living."
"We didn't even know how it worked, and you just beat them. Do you realize how close you are to winning? We're there. We're there."
