Ron Swanson refuses to allow Leslie to turn Pawnee into a Socialist hellscape

Ep. 16: Bailout: Socialist Hellscape

Ron Swanson refuses to allow Leslie to turn Pawnee into a Socialist hellscape. And also makes hunting metaphors for how to handle failed businesses.

Ron Swanson:

“No, I am here to express an opinion. This action by Council Woman Knope is nothing more than a thinly veiled government bailout, and I for one refuse to allow her to turn this town into a Socialist hellscape.”

“Allow me to elaborate…”

“The government should not prop up a failed business. That would be like giving food to a mortally wounded animal instead of slitting its throat and properly utilizing its meat and pelt.”
