Ted Nugent: Open season on RINOs
Like other entities that abandons basic quality control, political parties rot from within.
It happened to the Democrats long ago. Now that has become the case with a Republican Party that has strayed from its conservative underpinnings. There are really only four things to which I have a strong aversion: unloaded guns, dull knives, banjos and Republicans in Name Only (RINO).
RINOs feign support for conservative principles only when it serves their political interests.
They are known for their moderate positions, such as tax increases, gun control that guarantees more innocent victims, opposing the death penalty, and growing and sustaining our too-big government. We in the Nugent family call that Fedzilla.RINOs have forgotten former President Ronald Maximus Reagan’s admonition that government is the problem, not the solution.
RINOs reach across Fedzilla’s aisle to cut deals and build consensus with socialist pranksters whose goal it is to turn America into EuroAmerica.Consensus-building is for wimps, soulless people who stand for nothing. On this playing field, compromise is not about being tolerant. It’s about giving up.
As the GOP begins to retool, rebuild and return to the “less government is best government” conservative beast, the first thing it needs to do is to lock the RINOs out of the discussion. Heavily armed with an abundance of conservative attitude, my hunting buddies and I will provide security to ensure RINOs are kept downwind from the discussion.If allowed to participate, the presence of RINOs will continue to rot the Republican Party from within.
John McCain is a RINO on campaign finance, immigration, global warming and other issues. Look what happened to him. He had reached across the aisle so many times to cut deals with the socialists that he had to pick Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a true conservative, to try and lure disenfranchised and disgusted conservatives back into the fold.
McCain was the wrong candidate at the right time. RINOs lose elections. Conservatives win them.Should President Obama implement his wrong-headed economic policies, our economy will continue to slide into the abyss, and America’s debt will continue to soar to unsustainable levels. Conservatives must hold the line at all costs and call out all RINOs who support Obama’s economic kamikaze plan.
Conservative leaders and thinkers such as Newt Gingrich, Jed Babbin, Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Thomas Sowell, Glenn Beck, Michelle Malkin, Palin and others need to turn up the heat and bring this less-government, more-individual-freedom, strong-national-defense revolution to a boil. It is time
