Republican Comedian, Actor and Director, Tim Allen!

Tim Allen, who you now know is a Republican, became famous as the star of the hit TV sitcom, Home Improvement.  Home Improvement has always been one of my favorite family sitcoms and I look forward to one day sharing the show with my son.  I, like most fathers, would like to have a relationship with their children like that of “Tim the Tool Man” and his children as portrayed on the show – but with fewer explosions in the garage.  This family dynamic helped bolster the show to one of the top shows on television (ABC) with children and adults alike.

Tim Allen’s life wasn’t always full of success and stardom.  In 1978 he was arrested for intent to distribute a fairly large amount of cocaine and spent over two-years in a federal prison.

Allen’s career hardly ended with Home Improvement, he has also starred in numerous hit movies such as The Santa Claus, all of the Toy Story movies, Christmas with the Kranks and many more.

In 2010 Allen directed his first Feature Film, Crazy on the Outside.  Allen brought along fellow Republican actors Kelsey Grammer (Fraiser) and Julie Bowen (Modern Family) for the film.  Seems Republicans in Hollywood stick together.


Currently, he is the star of the of ABC’s prime time show, Last Man Standing.  On the show Allan plays Mike Baxter, a Conservative Republican character who supports Mitt Romney and openly slams Obama.  In an episode 4 days prior to the 2012 election Allen cracked several jokes at Obama’s expense such as, “Romney is a doer. It’s easy to be consistent, like Obama, when all you have done is organize communities. ” He later quipped in the same episode, “He did a great job with that South Side of Chicago. It runs like a watch down there. Of course, you can’t wear one.”  It seems that he’s getting to live out his personal political opinions on television with the success of the show.  I’m always thrilled to see Republican’s being portrayed positively on a popular television show.

Tim Allen helped raise funds for Republican Presidential candidate John McCain in the 2008 election as well as other candidates over the years.

Watch the video below of Tim Allen on the Jimmy Kimmel show saying that he would rather give his money away to family and friends rather than let the government have it.

    “Republican’s” shouldn’t have an apostrophe. It’s plural, not possessive.

    he would rather give his money to family and friends instead of the government which will go to the middle class and poor….I use to like him…I guess you really don’t know someone of stage until they open their mouth in public!!

    • deb s

      just goes to show how people with money will write off everything and continue not to pay their fair share of taxes

      • Michelle Preciado

        who the hell wants to pay the government??? I would rather not , so the they can squander our money ….

        • imageWIS

          Next time you need the cops or fire dept… don’t bother, they are paid with tax dollars.

    • Michelle Preciado

      You are part of the problem, why the heck should he give his money to us? He owes you nothing. When you wake up and realize what we earn is ours and what we do with it is a choice we make this world will be a better place.. In the meantime you shall remain in your bubble…

        I’m done trying to explain the rationale of why nations have taxes. Its like explaining to a child why he/she has to share their toys once in a while. Only a child gets it. Right wing yahoo extremists don’t.

      So you’re saying you disapprove of Tim giving his money to friends and family, and you believe he SHOULD give his money to the government? YOU are a NUT JOB!

  • Michelle Preciado

    This country seems to be split between the right hard working morally sound, God fearing people versus left , (many not all) who are parasite, whiney , anti life ,God, guns and meat , give me, give me, give me, on the other… I shall remain indefinitely right because I have to wake up in the morning and live with myself…

    and Allen’s previous show (Home Improvement) was one of the best on TV. His current show: Last Man Standing, is fantastic – everyone should be watching!

    Republicans spend DOUBLE what democrats spend against our debt, create budget DEFICITS and do not raise the GDP as a ratio of what they borrow. Republicans have done this for 100 YEARS! Please do your research!

    It’s not really that hard to imagine that someone convicted of cocaine distribution should eventually turn into a Republican Tool, Man. After all, I’m sure he was just trying to create low-level, minimum-wage, coke distributor jobs w/o benefits.

    I watch…he is funny. Being a comic is not the same as being wise. Many on the right who have “made it” no longer care about those who have not or who have been locked out of prosperity by circumstances beyond their control.

    The “dream” is just that, a dream. Simple math says it cannot be achieved by everyone else, everyone would be a billionaire and a billion dollars would mean nothing.

    Sadly in America well North of half of all our combined wealth is in the private hands of a few families. With a given pie to share, the more of that pie that is being eaten by a very few, the less there is to share among all the rest of us.

    Unless we just print money by the boxcar load, there is not enough wealth left for the rest of us to earn for ourselves.

    Some people cannot hope to make “it” big like Tim and others. That should not mean it is somehow wrong to help those less fortunate just because it might mean that those with all the marbles don’t want to share.
