Nugent told an NRA audience, “We are Americans because we defied the king, we didn’t negotiate and compromise with the king, we defied the Emperor’s, we are patriots, we are Braveheart.”
Never one to mince words, outspoken, conservative rock-and-roll star, Ted Nugent, let loose a tirade mainly against Chief Justice John Roberts and his deciding vote on Obamacare.
He even asked whether America would have been better off if the South had won the Civil War.
In a July 5 Washington Times column, Nugent wrote a scathing commentary on Roberts, labeling the Supreme Court justice “a traitor.”
“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,” Nugent wrote. “Our Founding Fathers’ concept of limited government is dead.”
He added, “Obamacare will now join Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid as another unaffordable, unsustainable, runaway, unaccountable social program.
“Our entitlement programs have bankrupted America. We have dug a financial crater so deep that many doubt we can ever climb out.”
He concluded, “Quite possible, 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.”
