Ted Nugent: Don't Tread On Me

Categories: Politics

By Evan Smith / Ted Nugent / KLRU / YouTube.com / April 25, 2008

"The Second Amendment is so obvious to me, it's insane that there's an argument.

"Let's pretend there is no document.  Let's pretend brave families didn't leave the tyrants and the slave-drivers of Europe so that they could practice the religion of their choice, that they could speak out without being murdered, that they could produce wool without the kings' men coming and taking it from them every season of harvest.  Let's pretend none of that happened.  Let's just pretend this guy named Ted Nugent parachuted onto earth and woke up one morning and saw all these wonderful resources and had dreams of excellence and being the best that [he] could be.

"I don't need the document, and don't need another man to explain to me that I have the right to defend my gift of life.  And that there's an argument in America...from Hillary Clinton, from Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, from a whole gaggle of numb-nuts who would try to tell me they will dictate where, how, and if...I can defend myself.  I find that preposterous. I find it unacceptable, and I will not accept it.

"I am a free man.  Don't tread on me!  A good law-abiding citizen, not convicted of a felon[y], the Second Amendment of our Bill of Rights is my concealed weapons permit.  Period!"

—Ted Nugent in a KLRU interview

Modern technology has rendered the battlefield to be as much MENTAL weapons as physical weapons...& Darpa and programs like MEMEX - that evolved into FACEBOOK and the like - are successful mind control programs. A shot need never be fired - if we allow those to remains who were "elected" not hired.
