About Ted Metz
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 Boy Scouts of America. 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. He said that once in Atlanta, he didn’t find a troop nearby and dropped out of Scouting 3 merit badges and a project shy of attaining his Eagle Scout honors. He entered the US Navy after his first two years 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. He studied Organic Chemistry at the University of Georgia and gained employment as a Scientist, heading the Research Division of a major consumer products corporation. After burning out on corporate culture, he fell back on his Risk Management and Insurance course work from Georgia State University and eventually retired from a career 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
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 enjoyed spending many years quenching his thirst for knowledge. He studied Zoology, Biology and Organic Chemistry at the University of Georgia. He then continued at Georgia State University focusing on Business Administration, Risk Management and Insurance, and Organizational Psychology. But not having had enough, he went back to DeKalb College (now known as Georgia Perimeter College) to study Nursing. He laments witnessing the finacialization of higher education, recounting years of skyrocketing tuition and books fees with no improvement in the quality of the education, and vast increases in the number of administrative personnel that had no bearing on improvements to education. 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, patriot, father and Grandfather
