Where would America be today if the south had won the Civil War? According to Ted Nugent, the United States would be a better place if we were still flying the confederate flag.
The musician recently wrote an op-ed for the Washington Times calling John Roberts, the Supreme Court Judge who sided with the liberal to uphold President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, a traitor.
“(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…. Our entitlement programs have bankrupted America… 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.”
This isn’t the first time that Nugent has spoken out against the Obama administration. The secret service even paid him a visit earlier this year after he made comments about assassinating the president.
Nugent concludes that Robert’s vote effectively killed our founding father’s vision of a limited government.
“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.”
The Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act has drawn strong opinions from just about everybody. And it’s understandable that Nugent is upset about Robert’s decision. But saying that America would be better off if the south won the Civil War is a little out of line, right?
