I have long been a fan of Ted Nugent’s music and have been to a number of his concerts over the years. For those of you that have never seen the Nuge in concert, he’s basically living the “Rock Star Life” and has got an onstage opinion to match his in your face musical talent.
I’ve watched him make comments on illegal immigration in San Antonio, seen him shoot arrows into Saddam Hussein’s cardboard cutout, ride a live buffalo on stage and generally promote his hunting lifestyle and advocacy of gun ownership during his shows. This is even before his political commentary. If you are not a thick skinned person, he will offend you surely.
Apart from his amazing guitar playing talent this guy is no dummy. His opinions are often outrageous not to offend but to make you think. I enjoy reading Ted’s weekly opinion columns in the Washington Port. Here is a link to his posts : http://www.washingtontimes.com/opinion/nugent/
On his rough and course exterior this guy actually makes good sense in that he has been clean and sober, hard working, and immensely generous all of his life. He is an advocate of his lifestyle as much as he is a political activist.
Ted is also a wonderful debater and does not just hide behind his multiple newspaper columns he write. He will actively meet with and defend his viewpoints in almost any public forum.
Watch him dismantle CNN’s Pierce Morgan here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLhN4KCroq4
The more I listen to this guy the more sense he makes to me and he fundamentally supports a culture and a work ethic that make the US the best country of all. Ted is also one of the single most charitable givers to our armed forces in the entertainment industry yet he done not brag about it at all. For this I respect him immensely.
In 2008 Ted released “Ted White and Blue” which is a humorous in your face read on his vision of America or at least how is should be.
Lastly I wonder who our current President likes less? Ted Nugent or Donald Trump as the both pose a political nightmare for him.
