Should Tea Party Endorse Kid Rock If He Runs For Senate?

Just call him Senator “American Badass.”

Musician Kid Rock confirmed on Twitter that he plans to run for a U.S. Senate seat from Michigan in 2018.

Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, dropped the bombshell Wednesday afternoon when he announced: “I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real … The answer is an absolute YES.”

Rock linked to the website “KidRockForSenate.com” and told fans to stay tuned for “a major announcement in the near future.”

In 2012, Rock stumped for Mitt Romney for president (we’ll forgive him for that). In 2015, the “American Badass” rocker revealed he’s a fiscal Republican, but a social libertarian.

“I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues,” he told the Guardian. “I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister, I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it.”

There have been rumors for months that Republicans in Michigan had been courting Kid Rock to run against Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow. Rock’s Twitter announcement set off a flurry of skepticism among liberals, who said all this is a PR stunt.

That seems unlikely, since PR stunts are not exactly Rock’s style. He’s not Kim Kardashian or some C-list liberal celebrity who’s virtue-signaling for brownie points in Hollywood.

Some noted that Rock has not filed any paperwork with the Federal Election Commission, so technically, none of this is official yet. But given Kid Rock’s longtime interest in politics, a senate run would not be surprising.

Time will tell whether the news is real, but many Kid Rock supporters already loved the idea:

Hell Yaa. Rock On! 

"Not opposed to "gay" (homosexual) marriage??

Sounds like a Christian In Name Only (CINO), in other words, someone who makes up his own right and wrong. Better than an anarchist commie, but only by one degree.

"As an ordained Minister I don't look forward to marrying gay people, but I am not opposed to it."

Nuff for me.

By the way, who ordained him?

And then, this.  " I am no fan of abortion, but it's not up to a man to tell a woman what to do."

Once again, who ordained this guy?   Demons? Or is he just an idiot.

If the latter is the case then he would fit right in as a U.S. Senator.

ALERT ALERT

 President Trump Threatens To Close Southern Border 

President Trump issued a blunt warning to Mexico and other Central American nations over their failure to stop illegal migrants and criminal cartels targeting the U.S. southern border, saying he would send the military and shut down the southern border. Trump made his threat in tweet storm Thursday morning in which he said the newly negotiated trade deal with Mexico would take second place to border security.

Over 4,000 migrants are now reported to be in the caravan headed to the U.S.

A horde of thousands migrants from Honduras and other Central American countries on an organized to the U.S. are approaching the Mexican border. Mexico is reportedly sending federal police to stop them.

Over 16,000 illegal alien migrant family units were arrested at the southern border in September.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

….The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”
