Right wing lunatic Ted Nugent Wonders If It Would It Have Been Better If 'The South Won The Civil War'

 Nugent Wonders If It Would It Have Been Better If 'The South Won The Civil War'

Ted Nugent

Mitt Romney surrogate and entertainer-turned-conservative-activist Ted Nugent cranked his political volume knob back up this week, penning an op-ed suggesting the Supreme Court's decision on Obamacare served as evidence that the United States would have been better off if "the South won the Civil War."

In a column for the Washington Times, Nugent blasted Chief Justice John Roberts for his "traitor vote," writing that 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."

According to Nugent, the alleged trends of growing federal power and undermining states' rights began when the North won the Civil War -- a historical event that he appears to lament.

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.

Click over to the Times for the rest of Nugent's thoughts on "Fedzilla," "financial tsunamis" and the impending "smothering era of socialism."

Nugent's inflammatory rhetoric has proven a prickly subject for the Romney campaign in the past. Although Nugent has been noticeably quiet since delivering a wave of controversy this spring, Tommy Christopher of Mediaite wonders if his latest offering will provide fresh fodder for reporters.

In the wake of the rocker's notorious outburst against Obama and Democrats this April, Romney's camp was forced to clarify that it hadn't expressed direct support or solicited Nugent's endorsement, contrary to the singer's claims. But Romney remained unwilling to condemn Nugent any further, as the campaign simply maintained that the presumptive GOP presidential candidate "believes everyone needs to be civil."

I have heard that the Confederacy's economic policies would have built a stronger nation. I don't have anything to back that up, because I am not terribly interested in revising history any more than it has been.

Had the colonies held off our little "revolution" thing, slavery would have been abolished at the turn of the 19th century. Then perhaps children would learn the real varied reasons why the Civil War occurred...

 How do you know what would have happened w/ slavery had the South seceded?

We wouldn't be the Super Power we are today had that happened, Lincoln made the decision because it was for the country's long distance future....

As a matter of fact. to show you what kind of minds I am surrounded by, let me share what was in our local paper about 3 weeks ago, in the Talk Back section, which is basically for quick opinions. One reader applauded the fact that NATO was keeping an eye on things in Syria, but wanted to know where NATO was when Sherman was burning Columbia and attacking Aiken! See, in some minds, the war is still going on, smh.

Actually he is well known for NOT using drugs or alcohol thruout his career. Just sleeping with lots and lots of women, maybe it's untreated syphilis?
