TULSA, OKLAHOMA – Retired truck driver Samuel Hunt (no relation to the metrosexual country star) is very concerned about the increasing popularity of what he describes as “socialist ideas” popping up around the country.
“Socialism will ruin us! It’s just not something our country can afford nor is it the type of idea that our capitalist country was based on,” Mr. Hunt continued, “we can’t just go around giving money to everyone all the time!”
When making small talk before the interview, Mr. Hunt noted that he had enjoyed quite the busy morning which included a trip to the grocery store after his monthly Social Security check arrived in addition to his bi-monthly doctor’s visit to check up on his newly replaced knee, which had been paid for by Medicare.
As a side note, he added that he was glad to report that because of the procedure he’s once again been able to take up his beloved gardening and resume playing with his grandchildren.
“Our country isn’t great because we give handouts to people. It’s great because most of our citizens have picked themselves up by their bootstraps and made a life all by themselves!”
Before leaving the interview Mr. Hunt also noted that his children, having attended public school, had been able to go to a public university and now lived in an affluent part of town. He was going to visit them.
“The further government is from my life, the better! They do nothing but muck things up!” Mr. Hunt yelled as he boarded a city bus and swiped his discounted senior citizen card.
