Ted Nugent: It might have been best if South won Civil War

July 7, 2012

By Jordan Zakarin, The Hollywood Reporter

Worried about the legacy of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America, Ted Nugent is now pondering whether the world would have been better off had the Confederate States, which fought to sever the union, been victorious in the Civil War.

The Detroit-born rocker and outspoken conservative activist writes in a new op-ed for The Washington Times of his fundamental fear of what he calls “Fedzilla,” or a government with a social safety net. Triggered by Chief Justice John Roberts voting to uphold President Obama’s Affordable Care Act — but calling the mandate to buy insurance a tax instead of a penalty — Nugent says, “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. Our Founding Fathers’ concept of limited government is dead.”

A longtime critic of the president — he received a visitfrom the Secret Service after making allusions to beheading Obama and members of his administration while at an NRA convention in April — Nugent blasts Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid as parts of what he calls a full-on socialist state.

“Our entitlement programs have bankrupted America,” Nugent writes. “We have dug a financial crater so deep that many doubt we can ever climb out. With his vote, Chief Justice Roberts didn’t give Fedzilla an even bigger shovel, he gave Fedzilla an earth mover with which to dig bigger financial holes.”

    What’s interesting is how the majority of the liberal democratic socialist run states are the ones that are or are going bankrupt, but most of the conservative states are still doing fairly well considering. It’s liberals who have been the cause of social programs, credit card debit, ease of filing bankruptcy, housing bust, government waste and fraud, and the thousands of useless laws created to relieve us of our freedoms. Of course the first thing to come out of Nugent’s statement will be the left claiming that he is racist because if the south had won then slavery would still be allowed. THE GOVERNMENT AND “PUBLIC” EDUCATION HAS BEEN VERY EFFECTIVE IN CHANGING HISTORY! The war was over states rights, of which slavery was only a small part of. Conservatives need to understand that you cannot and never will be able to make a liberal accept the facts; considering that it has been proven that Obuthead is fraudulently using a social security number that is not his and has produced a fraudulent birth certificate, as well as having no immigration papers, liberals still rally behind this CRIMINAL because he is aiding their causes and their greed. The downfall of this country is liberalism and socialism and the destruction of our country from within (to include all of the so called conservative rinos) , and Ted is 100% correct in that it is too late. We WILL eventually come to another civil war. Only Libertarianism will save this country.

    The confederate states would have been incapable of governing themselves. If you do not believe that consult with a Harvard U or Harvard Law School professor; you know, that super intelligencia who, along with the professors of the other ivy league schools, are trying to brain wash the American public into believing that socialism/communism is the way to go.
