The more I hear Allen West speak…the more I am convinced he is the kind of patriot we need serving in Washington.
Congressman West is a proud, unapologetic Constitutional Conservative that believes in the principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility & discipline, and personal accountability. His highly-decorated life has been an example of these principles, and he serves now to fight for them within the walls of the US Congress.
Allen West is a black American who, unlike our current President, actually believes in the principles taught by Dr. Martin Luther King. I believe Dr. King would be proud of the man Allen West has become, just as I believe he would be ashamed of the way President Barack Obama has failed to live by any principles.
2008 was an historic year in the United States when the American people elected the first black President. What a shame this first wasn’t a man of character and honor. Congressman Allen West is the type of role model the black community needs. He is an example of what one can become through hard work and personal accountability, rather than giving in to the victim mentality preached by Barack Obama and so many of the so-called ‘black leaders.’
I don’t know who Mitt Romney will choose as his running mate. There are many good men and women that would be outstanding in that role. But I don’t believe he could do much better than having Allen West to stand with him against Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
If you want a quick education on our Constitutional Republic, please watch the following video of Allen West’s 2012 CPAC speech.
Born and raised in the inner city of Atlanta, in the same neighborhood where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached, patriotism is in Congressman West’s blood.
“My father was proud of his own service, and believed that serving your country was the greatest of all honors,” West said. “Both of my parents taught me that it was not necessary to rely on a government handout to achieve my goals. They wanted me to believe in myself and told me that in America, with hard work, all things are possible.”
In November of 2010, Congressman West was honored to be able to continue his oath of service to his country when he was elected to be a Representative in the United States Congress.
“I have traded in my camouflage uniform for a suit,” West said. “But the commitment to protect the people of the United States is still my mission.”
A new poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that the choice of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump for president leave Americans feeling frustrated, angry, helpless — suffering from angst and malaise, with little confidence with our political system.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Like a lot of disaffected Republicans, I spent some time watching the Libertarian Party’s Presidential debate last night. I say “some” time, but that might have been a little bit of an exaggeration – really, I managed to survive about 10 minutes of a deeply disconcerting experience that nonetheless completely met my expectations. Of the five candidates on stage, | Read More »

Trump, who regularly engages in conspiracy theories, is quite the role model for such absurdities. From The NY Times: A constant stream of changes and scuffles are unsettling Donald | Read More »
