Draft-dodging pedophile Ted Nugent has written a thought-provoking piece for the Washington Times outlining a creative approach to solving our voting problems.

Let’s 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.

In addition to suspending a welfare recipient’s right to vote, we also need to get our voting system straightened out and eliminate voter fraud. We need to ensure that only Americans vote by requiring polling places to validate the identification of each voter.

It shouldn’t take a Motown guitar slayer to come up with these common-sense bargaining chips before taxes are raised on the producers, which will further choke the economy. How about it, GOP?

The GOP needs to act and act now to get this brilliant plan included in the Fiscal Cliff negotiations. It is a well known fact that the Republicans are in such a commanding position over President Obama that this presents a golden opportunity to culminate their ultimate goal of complete voter suppression of brown "Americans". I'm sure that John Boehner broke down in tears when he learned that it was policy wonk Nugent who thought of this plan before he did.

Ted goes on to explain that these stupid GOP politicians need to stop being such wimps over taking on popular entitlements. He is calling for Medicare, Medicaid and the dubious entitlement of Social Security to die the death of cattle, demanding that "these sacred entitlement cows are not only poked, but slaughtered". This is just the remedy the Republicans need right now to get back on their feet after the painful drubbing they took on November 6th.

I smell big things for Ted Nugent's future as a political adviser to the Grand Old Party.

Update: A couple of folks have asked me to consider removing Motown from the title. I did so as a courtesy. My intent in using his own words in the title was to demonstrate his total disconnect from reality. Apologies to the fine people of Detroit. You are well rid of this man.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
