Ted Metz started life as the son of an US Air Force pilot, living in 13 states by age 11. He says that being raised in the cultural diversity of base housing makes it easy to recognize the propaganda employed by the powers that be to perpetuate and incite the tension that keeps all Americans from enjoying “Domestic Tranquility.”
One of the constants in his youth was the BSA. Starting in Cub Scouts, Ted stayed with it through Explorers and earned the rank of Life Scout before moving to Atlanta in 1975 as a High School Senior and dropping out for a job and girl friends.
He entered the US Navy after two of college and traveled the world. After returning, he spent many years working his way through College as an entrepreneur in the Satellite Telecommunications Industry. As a Scientist, he ran the Research Division of a major consumer products corporation. Then as an Insurance and Financial Professional, he built and ran an Insurance Agency.
Now semi-retired, he is an Activist fighting to restore the Rule of Law and to stop the Corporate Takeover of the Government. He has been tirelessly engaged to affect people’s attitudes about Liberty and Self Determination with involvement in many groups and organizations, including: VoterGA, Georgia Activists, Libertarian Party, Georgia CARE Project, Peachtree NORML, Solutions Institute, OathKeepers, Georgia Coalition of Patriots, Informed Ga Grand Jury Forum, Operation Educate, Americans for Prosperity, Heritage Action Sentinels, Tax Revolution Institute and many others.
He got involved in grassroots politics as a libertarian minded novice with the 2012 Ron Paul Campaign and joined the GOP to try to steer the repulicrats towards smaller, fiscally responsible government. After some time and hard work, Ted was elected as the 39th Precinct Chair and then later was elected as the 3rd Vice Chair of 13th District in the GOP. He has served as Campaign manager or Staff member for several candidates, including Derrick Grayson 2014 run for US Senate. However, it wasn’t long before the realization that the GOP at all levels (National, State and County) was determined to ruin America sunk in. The opportunity arose to align with the Libertarian Party, and as a member of LP of GA, he has run for Georgia Insurance Commissioner, helped other LP candidates with their races, such as Andrew Hunt’s run for US Senate. Ted is currently the Chair of the Libertarian Party of Georgia.
Ted is frequently at the Capitol recording Committee Hearings for the purpose of holding elected officials accountable and exposing the cronyism and corruption present in the legislative process.
Ted studied Biology and Organic Chemistry at the University of Georgia. He also graduated from GSU with a B.B.A. focused on Risk Management and Organizational Psychology. He had held an Insurance License in Georgia since 1989 and is a Chartered Senior Financial Planner as well as a skilled web developer, graphics designer, writer, videographer, video editor, veteran and patriot.
