Ted Nugent on ‘Fox and Friends’
There have been rumors going around since February 2017 that American rock guitarist and political activist Ted Nugent would be contesting for Senate in 2018. Ted Nugent appeared on ‘Fox and Friends’ show recently. In order to address the ongoing rumors, Ted Nugent said:
“Well, I’m a terminal ‘we the people American patriot’ and I think I’m doing the most important political job in the world and that is participating in the scared experiment of self government and demanding constitutional accountability from our elected employees,”
“There’s no limit to what I’d be willing to do to help make this country great.”
Ted Nugent is still pondering over possible participation in the next Senate elections. He has been in discussion with his ‘Republican friends’ on it and other options.
Ted Nugent continued:
“I’m a hell raiser. I’m what the Founding Fathers wanted all Americans to be…and it’s all about the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Ten Commandants, the Golden Rule, being the best that you can be, earning you’re own way.”
Ted said with sarcasm:
“Wow, I’m a radical.”
The strong supporter of the American Republican Party wants to help America whether it is by being in Office or as a musician.
Ted Nugent is however very happy that there already is a hell-raiser in the White House. He was referring to Donald Trump. He went on to appreciate and praise Donald Trump’s efforts since he took office. Enumerating Donald Trump’s priorities, Ted Nugent said:
“[Put] America first, make America great again, job security, secure the border. You know, it’s so simple even guitar players can figure it out,”
Talking ill of Trump’s critics, Ted Nugent said:
“If you’re not pissing off the idiots you’re an idiot. He’s not an idiot; He’s driving the idiots crazy so I’m so proud of him.”
Sarah Anderson of Michigan GOP Press had mentioned in February that she has not spoken to Ted Nugent but feels that Ted Nugent would prove to be a great candidate against Debbie Stabenow.
