Nugent: Save America By Banning People Who Don't Pay Federal Income Taxes From Voting
NRA board member Ted Nugent says he is willing to support a proposal to close the gun show loophole, but only if in return people who pay no federal income taxes are banned from voting. In 2013, about 43% of households owed no federal income tax, but the vast majority of households did pay federal taxes in the form of the payroll tax, along with state and local taxes.
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 [sic] 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 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.
Those Americans who are prohibited from voting in federal elections can once again vote in federal elections when they have paid federal income taxes for three consecutive years.
Mr. Obama talks the talk, but when it comes down to brass tacks he’s largely unwilling to compromise. I will walk the walk. How about it Piers Morgan or Michael Moore? You guys in or just bloviating left-wing hacks?
I’m not holding my breath, but come on, let’s get it on. We have a country to save.
