Ted Nugent isn't dead or in jailÂ—even though he promised he'd be one or the other if President Barack Obama won his second term. Instead of honoring his promises, the Nuge has taken to his Washington Times column to blast welfare recipients and share his two cents regarding their voting rights.
Conservatives like Ted are hypocrites; calling out for "smaller government" while demanding more government interference in the lives of those you dislike is becoming the norm with his type. Now he says that welfare recipients shouldn't be allowed to vote. He said the following:
"Let's also stop the insanity by suspending 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. No American on welfare should have the right to vote for tax increases on those Americans who are working and paying taxes to support them. That's insane."
So basically Ted Nugent wants the GOP to go after voting laws that would suppress the votes of welfare recipients. Hasn't anyone ever told this guy that the majority of welfare recipients are in red states? So in this fantasy world created by Nugent and other conservative dingbats, most red states wouldn't be allowed to vote.
Hey, maybe nobody should tell them that, and the rest of the country can laugh as the GOP finishes digging its own proverbial grave.
