Draft dodger, adulterer, cradle-robber and 'Has Been' Rocker, Ted Nugent is back in the News. In a Washington Times column, he stated that the GOP should suspend Voting Rights for Welfare Recipients. So among Conservatives, its OK to violate the US Constitution by making such a pathetic and discriminatory statement.
Rocker Ted Nugent apparently still has the keys to an op-ed column over at the Washington Times, which has given him a forum to opine on how to deal with the deficit as lawmakers work to reach an agreement to avert the fiscal cliff.
According to Nugent, the debt and spending problem is so dire that the only way to even begin to address it is to simply engage in the ritual "slaughter" of entitlement programs altogether.
"The three sacred entitlement cows in the room that no politician wants to poke are Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid," Nugent wrote. "A blinding statement of the obvious is that we are never going to get our financial house in order until these sacred entitlement cows are not only poked, but slaughtered."
Nugent argued that instead of raising tax rates on the wealthiest Americans, as many Democrats including President Barack Obama have supported, Congress should hike taxes on everybody -- particularly the poorest 50 percent of Americans, whom Nugent accuses of mooching an "insane free ride."
The next step, wrote Nugent, was to suspend "the right to vote of any American who is on welfare."
"Once they get off welfare and are self-sustaining, they get their right to vote restored," he added. Link
Why is the stupid opinions of this insane uneducated redneck idiot in the news?
Its amazing that this 'celebrity' (who had not had a hit single for the last 2 decades) has become one loud voice of the Conservative Tea Bagging party.
Does he not know that the vast majority of welfare recipients are white people in Red States? These are his base and possibly his fans. But it has been common practice for Conservative pundits and Fox News to ignore facts and statistics in order to push their ideology and agenda.
Hey Ted, you promised us that if Obama got elected, you either be "dead or in jail". Well, we're waiting... I'm happy with either. Maybe you can start by "sucking on your machine gun", you blowhard has-been!
