article imageOp-Ed: Motor City Madman for President

By Steve Bellah     Oct 13, 2008 in Politics
Conservative, outspoken rocker Ted Nugent's new book spells out the things he'd do if he were elected President. I gotta tell ya, ole Ted makes a lot of sense.
As reported on in the New York Post's Page Six, Ted Nugent's new book entitled "Ted White and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto" gives voice to what many Americans are feeling these days. If you are weary of the non-committal, wishy-washy, politically correct positions taken the the two candidates, then Ted might just be your man.
His unwaivering support for and confidence in the military is refreshing and right on target: " instruct the US military warriors to do their job - win the global war on terror right now and eliminate all threats from all sources by any means necessary" says Nugent, in his book. Does anyone doubt their ability to carry out such an order? I think not.
He also has a plan to provide some immediate relief to our energy crisis and settle some of our outstanding debts at the same time. Mr. Nugent would: "take appropriate gas and oil from Mexico and the Middle East as payment for all debts we are owed by them."
He would also take action to get a handle on out-of-control welfare costs by kicking able bodied recipients off of the government teat. According to Ted: "able-bodied Americans who refuse to work will be sent to Cuba, Mexico, England and France."
What about everybody's favorite corrupt international organization aka the U.N.? Well, he has a plan for that too: " refuse to pay one red cent more to the UN until other nations pony up their fair share - but maintain membership just to keep our eyes on the bastards." This is a man after my own heart.
Wouldn't it be nice to see somebody/anybody running for office, finally grow a set and say some of this stuff and truly and unapologetically represent us the U.S?
