The way I see it, a 4th of July celebration at deeranddeerhunting.com must be a very special Independence Day celebration by those of us that live the ultimate independent lifestyle. Afterall, which culture of man could function more independently than a ruggedly individual deerhunter, driven by instinct and vision to remain hands-on, down and dirty, in providing for our families and performing our clear and present environmental, resource stewardship duties?
By Ted Nugent
None, I say. Nary a one.
A truly Happy Independence Day is supposed to mean not being dependent! Ya think?
I have written passionate, joyous, sincere Happy Independence Day celebrations many times over the years for many publications. The Nugent tribe celebrates Independence Day every day of the year, with vigor, for we know how this uniquely American day, spirit and reality is something we should never forget the origins of and never fail to appreciate the hard earned freedoms that go with it.
Sadly, for too many years now the emphasis of my 4th of July writings have been painfully on the engineered deterioration of real honest to God rugged individualism and independency, and rather lamenting the new, embarrassing acceleration of soulless, wimpy dependency.
All one has to do is admit to the scourge of the exploding, totally unnecessary and inexcusable welfare state, the constant whining of unearned entitlement, the mindlessness dishonesty of political correctness and the runaway abuse of power and criminality throughout our government to see the results of the successful dumbing down of America.
Though clearly not universal, and only the guilty need feel guilty, the economic and spirit engines that drive America and our inherent quality of life is supported and delivered exclusively on the shoulders of the remaining real Americans, those of us not falling for the scam of feebleness, excuse making, animal rights lies, Constitutional violation and the resultant dependency that further weakens America by the minute.
I keep hearing and actually asking myself, “What’s next? Can it get much worse?”
And sure as hell, more and more bizarre and scary things happen on a continuing basis. Being ganged up on by the executive, judicial and legislative branches of our government all at once more and more these days, I join many good Americans searching desperately for leadership that can help steer us out of these tragic times.
This 4th of July weekend is probably needed more than ever for a getaway from the madness and chaos that is this putrid fundamental transformation trainwreck, but at the risk of possibly compromising the great escape, please allow me to sound an alarm for those who are still independent and wish to remain so.
Let me see the hands of real independents that have a spare tire and the proper tools to change a flat.
Let me see the hands of those responsible household leaders that have a complete 1st aid kit with them for the weekend, and quite honestly, accessible at all times throughout the year.
Let me see the hands of all genuine rugged individuals that have up to date fire extinguishers at hand, not only because fireworks will be erupting this weekend, but because without a fire extinguisher you are indeed not independent.
And the Independence Day clincher for 2015: Let me see the hands of all those conscientious Americans with a firearm and ample ammunition on their person.
No, really. Let me see your hands.
According to past and present CIA, FBI, DHS, ATFE, and assorted military intelligence masters, a Tunisia type terrorist attack is a very real threat here on the homeland over this 4th of July weekend.
Deerhunters! Gunowners! Are you with me?
I can hear the whiney sheep baaaaaa……. baaaaa….. baaaaaaa’ing away at the paranoid silliness of the old NRA guitarplayer, foolishly thinking “everyone should carry a loaded gun”.
Knowing my fellow man all too well, I would never assume everyone would ever do the right thing, therefor alerting only those who are smart enough and care enough and who actually celebrate Independence Day properly by actually being independent and capable of independently taking care of business wherever it may arise.
There have always been sheep, wolves, and sheep dogs. I get that, but I don’t like it. The choice is yours; sheep, wolf or sheep dog.
You can choose to be an unarmed, helpless victim if you wish, as the dumbing down and propaganda ministry has brainwashed the lesser amongst us to be.
You can choose to be an evil attacker.
And we who care more and know better can choose to be protectors to stop the wolves from killing the grazing sheep.
Life is a series of choices. Pick one.
Good independent souls with guns, deerhunters, should have been on the beach in Tunisia, should have been at Luby’s cafeteria, should have been at Columbine, should have been at Virginia Tech, should have been at the Aurora movie theater, should have been in Tucson, sure as hell should have been at Fort Hood, and should have been at the EMA church in Charleston.
Sheep dogs should be everywhere, because sheep and wolves are.
There are more than ample numbers of capable Americans to adequately protect most areas this coming weekend, and every day, everywhere, for that matter, if they would just choose to do so.
If we honestly add up all the current and ex-law enforcement, current and ex-military and the vast army of law abiding citizen gun owners across America, deerhunters, I am confident that any attempt at terrorism like we saw in so many of these instances could be greatly reduced, and in many cases, halted altogether.
The best way to celebrate this grand American Independence Day Holiday, is to be independent and live independently.
Enjoy the fireworks. Be prepared to make some of your own.
