“That little thought in the back of American heads telling us SS, medicare, medicaid, and obamacare will always be there is a fantasy, and yet we cling to it as the truth. Yes we have politicians of one party telling us they are entitlements and will always be there, but look at the European nations going into austerity programs to try and stay afloat. Their programs were entitlements too and now are being cut back. Do we really believe we are in better shape than they are? We are doing the exact same things they did and we expect a different outcome??”

“Their medical expenditures are HALF of those in the U.S. so to blame their problems on overspending on that is nonsensical.”

“Colorado should be left to the unstable if they so desire. Companies such as Magpul and folks who still value personal freedoms listen up; Oklahoma and Texas welcomes you and yours. Your morals, values, and love of freedom are held by many more people here than don't. When you've had enough of big brother telling you what they think is best for you, how to live your life, what you can and can't buy, what you can or cannot eat, etc, you know there are at least two states that will welcome you.”

“Most of what you say is bs and you know it. His past is my past as well and is just that, past. If we want to hold folks past against them forever, well we would all be in trouble, would we not? How and why would the NRA "sponor" Ted? For what reason?”

“It is not BS, and YOU know it.  I could tell a story, but I will  refrain.  When a Public figure wants to attack others for their "Pasts", then turnabout is fair play.  Yes,  the NRA.  They like  celebrity spokesmen. Macho ones,  who will  promote Gun culture.  How ?  They could sponsor him at Gun shows,  by give him a speaking platform.  Why?  because he attracts attention, because of his former   accomplishments as a musician.  His  fans are older now, and many have money to spend.  The reason ? Money.  Simple.”

“I guess you know nothing of his Groupie /under age preying past.  He is indeed, so self-reliant,  that he often did not bother to  pay child-support for his children,  without  a fight, from their mothers. Self-Reliant enough, to  become the legal guardian of an underage girl,  in order to  avoid laws that  prevent  sex with minors.  He liked the real young ones. Too young.What ever.  But what Really bothers me, is that  I suspect that he is being sponsored by the NRA, and  is promoting  rather extremist gun Ideas.  I prefer the  sporting hunters of my Grandfather's era.”

Ted donates a lot of time and money to disabled veterans groups and also takes many disabled vets to his range, on hunts, and other adventure trips and has for some time.

“Bill Clinton chose to leave the country, same with several other dems.

'There were more honorable ways, of being a conscienceous objector to the war, than crapping in your pants.'

I didn't realize there was an 'honorable' way of shirking one's duty to his country?”

“The House has submitted several budgets to be voted on by the Senate over the last 4 years and all have been shelved by Reid without a vote. It is Obama's fault for not pressuring Reid to vote and pass a budget, instead he would rather not be constrained to continue Bush's spending spree and the destruction of our nation.”

“'Ted Nugent, you are slaughtering wild pigs, the same way the buffalo were slaughtered en-masse. '
Buffalo have one, maybe two calves a season. Pigs have litters of them, four to eight at a time. Buffalo graze, pigs root up the ground. A handful of pigs can destroy a field of crops overnight. Have you ever checked on the price of seed and fertilizer?”

“I grow my own food. I Take care of the critters that want my crops in the most ecological and most humane way possible. I try not to kill animals. And I certainly do not go on television to justify this form of blood lust, To make it seem normal to spray the countryside with machine-gun bullets from a helicopter. It seems that Ted feels that he missed out, on such experiences when he could have done basically the same thing, in Vietnam.”

Couldn't be from OVER SPENDING could it? Surely it couldn't be from auto and too big to fail bank bailouts, or federally guaranteed loans on bankrupt "green" energy scams?
