Ted, White, and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto

Ted, White, and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto - Ted Nugent What can I say? You will either disagree or agree with him. Odds are good if you fall in the conservative spectrum, you will like him better than if you are on the liberal side. He does have some common sense ideas, and he does seem to have thought them through. However, like a lot of hardcore libertarians, a sense of extreme individualism, often at the expense of others, is present. Things like taking personal responsibility, a good work ethic, and values are certainly things I can agree on. Pretty much cutting out things like safety nets under the hopes that the private sector and charities will take care of the most needy just are not true. All we have to do is look at the current environment to see that without regulation the haves will pretty much screw everyone else over. Nugent seems to miss that. But he is not totally black and white, which may be why some on both sides of the political spectrum can find some common points. If nothing else, the book did give me some things to think about, and that, for me, is always a good thing.
