Ted Nugent petitions to close "the federal voting loophole"

Like many far-right activists, Ted Nugent lives in a black and white fantasy land in which everyone is either just like himself or just like Bob Marley.

Once again writing for the looney bin known as WorldNetDaily, Nugent demonstrated this again by stating that "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."

Nugent acts like this will only prohibit hippies and welfare freeloaders from voting, but back in that thing he greatly detests called reality, it amounts to roughly 43% of all U.S. households, many of which actually do pay federal taxes in the form of a payroll tax.

This is what Nugent expects to get in exchange for dealers at gun shows being required to do background checks.

Nugent ends his column by asking Piers Morgan and Michael Moore if they are "just bloviating left-wing hacks." But when the actual facts of his offer are put into perspective, what Nugent really seems to be implying is that they are suckers.
