- Robert Jones: You’re sort of regarded as an oddity in the punk movement. A conservative Republican. Like a right-winger doesn’t belong.
- Johnny Ramone: To me, I think punk is right wing. What happened in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s was a lot of disaffected kids – the kind who would’ve been hippies a decade before – drifted into punk. But, when you think of who punks are, they’re greasers, people who didn’t fit in, but they didn’t back down either. Who above all, love America. I’ve voted Republican ever since 1960 when Kennedy ran against Nixon. I’ve been with the conservative Republicans since I was eleven years old.
