In a further statement, Nugent said, “I’m flattered that
the Michigan citizenry grasps my sincerity. I have always celebrated my ‘We The
People’ activism. Maybe it’s time to take it to the next level. The status quo
system of politics sucks. Maybe it’s time for an upheaval. Call me Ted
‘Upheaval’ Nugent. We’ll see what happens.”

mostly pro-life except for in the case of incest and life of the mother, which
is too bad since a 100 percent pro-life gonzo conservative would have been
