Aging rocker and reality TV personality Ted Nugent is emerging, even ahead of Donald Trump, as Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s most embarrassing public supporter.
Nugent is at it again, reacting to the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the Affordable Care Act by writing in the Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s Washington Times that America would have been better off had the South won the Civil War. ***** Images
A full Nugent rant, which might be subtitled “Robe Rage”:
“The bottom line is that Chief Justice Roberts’ traitor vote will ensure more monumental spending and wasted taxes and put almost 15 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product under one of the world’s most bureaucratic, ineffective, incompetent and grossly expensive systems ever devised by man: our out-of-control federal government.
“Chief Justice Roberts squandered the opportunity to restore judicial, financial and legislative sanity to a government that by any sane person’s standards is insane and addicted to centralized federal control of our lives.
“Because our legislative, judicial and executive branches of government hold the 10th Amendment in contempt, I’m beginning to wonder if it would have been best had the South won the Civil War.”
It was not Nugent’s first venture into discussing law. At the National Rifle Association convention, earlier this year, he accused the Obama administration of “wiping its ass with the Constitution.”
He has also had scrapes with the federal government. The Secret Service came to interview Nugent after he told NRA delegates: “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
And Nugent pleaded guilty to federal charges of illegally killing a bear in Alaska’s Tongass National Forest. http://blog.seattlepi.com/seattlepol...won-civil-war/
Actual quote: "Because our legislative, judicial and executive branches of government hold the 10th Amendment in contempt, I’m beginning to wonder if it would have been best had the South won the Civil War."
Title: "‘Best’ if South had won Civil War"
If you can read his comment and draw the conclusion that he meant it was "‘Best’ if South had won Civil War" you're a full retard. If the South had "won" the Civil War (meaning anything but complete destruction and capitulation), than obviously the 10th Amendment would have been used to constrain the reach of the federal government.
Besides what Ted, a citizen with no obligation to anyone but himself and his family, said about this or any other subject, WTF does it have to do with Romney ("Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s most embarrassing public supporter")? I'm sure Ted supports a large number of organization and people (like the NRA for example), and yet that's not the focus of the article, is it?
