Although I normally associate myself with the Republican Party, the fact that aspiring governor “wannabe” Greg Abbott associates himself with an avowed racist and rabble-rouser like Ted Nugent, who masquerades as a Republican, has caused me to rethink my political allegiance in the upcoming election.

Furthermore, Gov. Rick Perry’s anemic characterization of the “subhuman mongrel” remark as “outrageous” misses the mark by a wide distance.

One of the greatest strengths of our country is that freedom of speech is an integral part of the freedoms we take for granted as protected from governmental interference.

It is that guarantee which allows individuals like Nugent to show their true colors. This permits us to assign them to the “Sieg Heil” political niche where they will hopefully rot away along with Herr Alois Schicklgruber.

Sadly, however, they do continue to walk among us.
