As the actions of the US Federal Government become more overtly draconian, a growing number of people who would never have seriously considered secession are beginning to understand that severing ties with Washington, DC is the best path forward. Imagine a well-known figure like Ted Nugent, who is certainly no Southern nationalist, making the following statement in The Washington Times:
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 [sic]. Our Founding Fathers’ concept of limited government is dead.
Of course, Nugent is right. Limited government is dead in the United States. It’s time to kick the Feds to the curb before they can harm us any further.
Be sure to check out some of the comments after the article. There sure is a lot of hatred for the South and decentralised government out there. There’s also an incredible amount of historical ignorance. Notice how those commenting assume that if you love liberty and resent centralised government that you are ‘stupid’ and ‘racist,’ you ‘hate America’ and yearn for the days of slavery. lol Here are a few choice comments:

We Michiganders should deport Ted Nugent to Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, or any of the other orginal Confederate States, since he is a disgrace to the State of Michigan-which fought bravely during the Civil War.
Yes, his comment suggesting that we might be better off if the South had won was outrageous. Here’s a guy who claims to be a patriot, yearning for slavery. He is a loudmouth creep with a broad streak of yellow on his back.

“Beginning to wonder if it would have been better if the South won the Civil War” ????? Nugent is a pig and his followers are CONFEDERATES. Shame on all y’all.

Ted Nugent hates America. The “America” he claims to love hasn’t existed since the 19th century. He is a stupid, racist, draft-dodging, chickenhawk. Nothing more. Ted Nugent hates America. And so do his supporters.
