Kid Rock: National Capitalist

“If people vote the other way, then I’ll support our president, whoever’s elected. More importantly, somebody’s just gotta smack the fuck out of Congress and get them to start working together, and put this bullshit aside and get this country back on track.” -Kid Rock, 2013-

Kid Rock. Love him or hate him musically, he is one of the most successful musicians of the 1990’s-2000’s with his unique mix of rock, rap, country and bluegrass. He portrays himself as a working class white with working class values that worked hard for his success and wealth. That’s all well and good, but now he has declared he is running for Senate in his home state of Michigan as a Republican against the incumbent Democrat. Why the hell would anyone want to vote for a guy who makes music about drinking, strippers, and all things “Bad Ass”? Well if you are like the 1st Irregulars, a National Capitalist, you would vote for him because he too is one, and is one of the most recognized and well known advocates of the platform outside of President Trump.

Rock, real name Rob Ritchie, is a conservative, pro capitalist, Nationalist, with Libertarian leanings. He may not use the term, but he absolutely personifies NatCap ideology. When asked in 2016 about who he supported for President, Rock said “I’m digging Trump. I feel like a lot of people, whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, feel like if you get Hillary or Bernie, or you get Rubio or Cruz or whoever, there’s going to be the same shit. Has that much fucking changed when anyone’s in office, whether it’s been a Republican or a Democrat in office, in our lifetime, anyway? I haven’t really seen this big, like, fucking change. Obviously some people fucked up. [Laughs] That’s a long debate. My feeling: let the motherfucking business guy run it like a fucking business. And his campaign has been entertaining as shit.”

As a Businessman himself, he understands why a businessman in the Oval Office would be a net benefit. He also understands the need to Drain The Swamp and get rid of the lobbyist based Partisan gridlock now infesting DC in order to get meaningful legislation passed. And what kind of legislation would he support when that is done? Well, he opposes Gun Control and believes firmly in the Second Amendment. He believes in Free Speech and, as a musician, has opposed Political Correctness his entire career. He has also said he supports the Trump Immigration Agenda, though he did not disclose any more details, just a blanket approval. He also supports Religious Freedom, saying about gay marriage that while he supports Gays having legal access to marriage, “as an ordained minister I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it.” This is a position most American’s would agree with, even if our side of the movement may not, and thus a smart policy stance.

So that’s social issues, but what about his Economics?

Kid Rock is rich, based on a combination of hard work in the music industry, smart marketing, and flat out luck. On his wealth he said, “I’m not just wealthy, I’m loaded. I can say that because I’m not embarrassed – I’ve made a fuck-ton of money, but I’ve never made a dishonest dollar. I try to do right by the people around me.” Kid Rock runs a multi-million dollar music and merchandising empire. He believes in commerce, but he also understands ethics in commerce. He will come in with a working class ethos, but a white collar understanding of how business runs and a disdain for waste.

Am I saying he is the savior of all our problems? Absolutely not. What I am saying is, for us to have a chance to implement Policy which will lead us to a more NatCap society we could do a lot worse, and if all else becomes a bust, and he completely backtracks on all of this, he will at least be an entertaining train wreck. What have we got to lose supporting him? The opposition is an incumbent progressive liberal. One less of those in the Senate and one more “American Bad Ass“? I think that sells itself. Also he is already making liberals lose their minds. 

His Comment to his opponent is already Trumpian in it’s eloquence. “Senator [Debbie] Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind. I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullshit!”

So with that said, I am throwing out my official endorsement for Kid Rock for Senate 2018. Rock The Vote, Michigan, Vote For Rock.
