Writing for World Nut Daily, Ted Nugent thinks his compromise is “mighty presidential.”
My recommended Grand Compromise is this: Yours truly, the humble MotorCity Madman, NRA Board of Directors member, leading gun-rights spokesman and prospective presidential candidate in 2016, will support and champion closing the so-called gun-show loophole if the anti-gun left wing will support closing the federal voting loophole.
Left-wing anti-gun adherents believe closing the so-called gun-show loophole will be a big step forward in making America safer. While I don’t believe this for a Mayor Bloomburg smoke-free, fat-free gun-hating second, I’m willing to lead a charge for closing this “loophole” if the left wing, say Piers Morgan or Michael Moore, will agree to promoting and advocating closing what many hardworking and taxpaying Americans believe to be a federal voting loophole.
The federal voting loophole is this: People who pay no federal income taxes are allowed to vote in federal elections. Arguably, this is a “loophole” since these voters have no federal income tax flesh in the game.
The producers who pay more than our fair share believe that it is grossly unfair for those who pay no federal income taxes to be able to vote in federal elections determining how other Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars are spent.
The voting “loophole” needs to be closed in order to restore fairness in federal elections. Closing this loophole will not prohibit people who pay no federal income taxes from voting in local, county and state elections - only federal elections. That’s reasonable and fair.
One commenter, however, is not impressed:
As a Constitutional Libertarian Tea Partier… I say…
TO HELL with Unkie “vote for gungrabbing Romney” Ted’s hilarious lil’ compromise, with his ALWAYS-COMPROMISING NR(epublican)A!
My GOD-GIVEN SECOND AMENDMENT IS NOT SOME CHESS PIECE TO BE SACRIFICED ON THE DEVIL’S GAMEBOARD, so that the devil will PROMISE to mercifully retract his pitchfork a skosh, for my temporary personal comfort.
1. The 2nd Amendment is CLEAR! Registration, background checks, closed loopholes, etc, INFRINGE MY GOD-GIVEN RIGHT TO DEFEND MYSELF AND MY PROPERTY!
2. ENTITLEMENTS ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!!!!!!!! WIC, HUD, SNAP, Medicare, Bushcare, Obamacare, SS, EBT cards, etc. END IT ALL NOW AND FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION!!!!!! NO COMPROMISE!!!!! NONE!!!!!!!!!
GOOD GOD, what a nation of BARTERING COWARDS we’ve become!
America needs more REAL “madmen” like Adam Kokesh and less POSERS who do nothing more than dress the part and SHILL for the LEFTIST, GUNGRABBING republican party.
