Let the "Spin and Misinterpitations"begin!
I think Ted Nugent is a nit-wit and I don't agree with his sentiments. Nonetheless, I believe he had a right to say what he did even if it is inflammatory.
Always remember that others may hate you but those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.

"The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests." - Patrick Henry
I encourage each of you to read and reread the above statement. Whether we agree or disagree as to the PC of Ted, we should all wake up and understand that more than ever before, our survival as a country is dependant on each and every one of us being vigilant in our own way and standing up for our rights. Our nation was conceived to protect the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness of the individual, NOT of the collective or groups of special interests. The miracle of the Constitution is the simple genius of limited government and its singular devotion to protecting individual liberty. The problem is that politicians and bureaucrats often think they know better than the people who wrote our constitution and do not know their own limitations declared by the constitution and make it their business to mind ours and do as they wish. IF you can't see that this is what is happening under the current regime, then all I can say is - you have your head in the sand! Part of being vigilant and aware of how our constitution can and is being violated, are discussions such as what we are having now, here in this forum and across the country. If you sit at home in November, and do nothing to change the course that our government is now pursuing, then you have NO right to impart your opinion on others, either in this forum, in conversation with your neighbors, or otherwise. Doing nothing will simply contribute to our path to socialism. Do what you wish - I'm not only going to vote, I'm going to encourage everyone within speaking distance, mailing distance, phoning distance, etc ...to do the same. Our country CAN NOT survive on it's current path. JMO
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

A man, without force, is without the essential dignity of humanity. Human nature is so constituted, that it cannot honor a helpless man, although it can pity him; and even this it cannot do long, if the signs of power do not arise.
This is news....Come on. It was a figure of speech. The media has there heads so far up the liberals butts, it isnt funny.....
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
"If the coyote's in your living room, ******* on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him," Nugent said. Sorry, I don't think he is talking about things on four legs or equating "shooting" with "voting against".
Getting back on the topic of Ted...When he makes such inflammatory remarks it sets a stage for violence. His crazy talk suggests that the President had better be removed by vote and if that doesn't happen then shoot him like a coyote. Did he really mean to assassinate the President? The answer is, to some people, 'yes' there are plenty of people who heard those words and liked what they heard and interpreted it exactly that way. Anyone who thinks assassination is the answer is a complete fool that wants to take this country down to it's knees through criminal action. A disgrace to America.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
I agree completely that the days of PC need to be over with- it's not going to happen.
Under our current administration, you have to be PC, and you can't speak your mind without getting in trouble.

Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.
Hopefully Uncle Ted gets a visit from the Secret Service and then water boarded. You don't threaten our POTUS or national security. Uncle Ted is nothing but a coward and an Un-American idiot who brings shame to our nation with his history of sleeping with underage girls, drug use, and stupid comments. I don't understand why everyone thinks threatening the lives of our senior officials is funny.
