Overview

It’s About Time.

America has been craving leadership—and at last a gun-slinging, mega-rock star, deerslayer, and patriot has stepped forward to provide it. Make way for Ted Nugent. Cocked, locked, and ready to rock, the Motor City Madman, the thinking man’s Abraham Lincoln, has unleashed the ultimate high-octane political manifesto for the ages in Ted, White, and Blue—the most important patriotic statement since the Constitution. In Ted, White, and Blue you’ll discover:

Why war is the answer to so many of our current problems

Why if Ted were a Mexican, he’d start a revolution (and how, since he’s not, we can control our own borders)

How to put Uncle Sam on a diet (a waste-watchers program for government)

If you care about America, if you want to preserve, protect, and defend the land of the free and the home of the brave, if you’re fed up with lazy, whining, fear mongering, government-gorging Obamaniacs, then you need to read Ted, White, and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto.


Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Love him or loathe him, veteran rocker, commentator, and neo-libertarian rabble-rouser conservationist Nugent is hard to ignore. His "manifesto," a collection of essays and ruminations, will prove bracing but familiar to those acquainted with his antic, aggressive voice-in-the-wilderness style and often controversial stances on hot-button issues like gun control, welfare and self-reliance. Among loud, provocative analysis of a dozen issues (plus a chapter devoted to his last essay collection, 2001's God, Guns & Rock and Roll), Nugent puts together an "If I were president" list that includes eliminating welfare except for military personnel, making prisoners plant trees, forcing people in New Orleans live on higher ground and executing child molesters. While many of his suggestions-meant to "piss you off" as well as think-are pat, or even curmudgeonly ("I am convinced that most kids today have never heard the word 'posture'"), they're balanced by common sense and a healthy respect for the Golden Rule. Longtime fans will revel in Nugent's loudmouth charm and his rhapsodic take on discovering the guitar; whether he'll persuade newcomers that global warming is "the greatest hoax ever played on Americans," or that he himself is "a large, in charge, ruggedly independent, angry black man" is doubtful, but this maverick never claimed to be a uniter.

I'm an avid book listener and this is one of the best I've listened to in a long time. Ted reads it himself, which lends to the enjoyment. If you're fed up with liberal spin and enjoy shoot-from-the-hip ideas and truths about our country, where it is and why it is, then this is a must-read.

In his book, Mr. Nugent says what many of us feel but aren't allowed to say due to our nations silly obsession with being PC. He lays out his opinions (which really are just common sense!), and backs them up with intelligent arguments and statistical facts. If you are a liberal, be prepared to feel like a clown!

Although I am somewhat biased being a big Ted Nugent fan, he hits many subjects in the bullseye. I beleive writes alot of what mainstream America is thinking.

Ted, White and Blue presents a common sense approach to understanding what is wrong with America today. Furthermore, the work discusses pragmatic ways in which Americans can significantly participate in helping to heal the economic problems faced by our country today. Yes, there is a difference between wants and needs. The presentation would be helped if Mr. Nugent had toned down the chest-pounding presentation that he slips into at times. However, his ideas actually make sense. Even though he thinks that he is a Republican (though unhappy with the current direction of the party), his ideas sound like a fleshed out version of the Libertarian Party official platform. I think that all members of the U.S. Congress should read this text. Perhaps Mr. Nugent will sent them a copy!

This book should be manditory reading for all politicians, law enforcement, parents, teachers, news paper editors and anit-gun idiots. It spells it out like it should be done. No words are missed and it is down to earth reading. Ted should receive the Nobel Peace Award for writing it. In fact the Nobel award should be taken from Al Gore and given to Ted.
I have read it twice now to make sure I did not miss anything and admired it both times. I'm with Ted. Well written and done !

Applause, applause, how absolutely refreshing to read such common sense and logic. Ted's a man's man, and he speaks the absolute truth. If you're sick to death of the whining in America and crave some tough-as-nails hard honest truth, presented here in the Nuge's always entertaining style, READ THIS BOOK.

If you have not seen/heard Ted on one of his vast media appearances then you have not been paying attention! Ted is everywhere...and I can't get enough of him! Like John Wayne, Ted is truly an American Hero indeed! I loved this book immensely, it's an important book and should be on everybody's reading list. I've gifted it to family and friends, just in time for christmas shopping! This book is bold, entertaining and ultimately Ted's gift to all of us, offering his guiding principles, and this reader salutes Ted Nugent! We're lucky to have him! Thank you Uncle Ted, well done!

Ted Nugent may be a rock n roller, but he has good old values that American people are lacking these days. People should be responsible for their actions, work hard, and show respect.....even my son, who is reading this book sees the basic values that is lacking in his generation.

Ted calls for the United States Americans to walk a more responsible path in order to keep this great nation going for generations to come. No matter race or creed, everyone can take at least some of these ideas and apply them to their own lives to become more independant and less dependant on a system that thrives on waste.
