I do love to see character in a man - regardless of skin color. I would vote for him in a minute. He could do so much good with our Black Population. At least, he might be able to get them to listen to him. Honestly, we have failed our Black citizens. They would yell racism and the next thing you know - they are given a promotion. Affirmative action hurt them as well. There are so many young Black males that are in trouble or get into a gang, etc. Certainly not all of them - I hate generalizations but in this case the figures support it. The bulk of the prison popular is Black. Some will say it is because they were discriminated against - didn't have a good lawer etc. The bottom line is in order to aquire the "American Dream," you have to work hard and get some kind of trainig or education. And, even then, it might not work out. I do think though that hard work will pay off in time. If you get a job at a chicken plucking factory, be the best chicken plucker you can be.
I do admire this man. He is a super role model.
I really like this man, He says exactly whats on his mind and he has the courage to stick to his convictions, The libs are now screaming for Mitt to "come clean" about his "offshore" accounts and business dealings. I think the Romney team should wait a few weeks and let the libs push this issue, On national TV or a Pres. debate Mitt should say, I'll tell you what, I will make public that information plus I will show for public scrutiny, my birth cert,my high school and college transcriptions, my SS card etc. Mr President, I challenge you to make the same information public, Game over. If Obama refuses. in the public eye he's going to look like he's trying to hide something. If he complies,whatever he's trying to hide will be brought to light.
I really like this man. He says what he believes and has the courage to stand by his convictions.The libs are insisting that Nitt "come clean" about his offshore financial dealings. I think Mitt's team should wait a few more weeks,let Obama and his libs really push that issue, Mitt should then either go on national TV or a Pres. debate and say, "I'll tell you what, I will make that information public and I will also make my birth cert.mmy high school and college transcripts, my SS card etc public and I challenge this President to do the same, Game over, If Obama refuses he will look bad in the eyes of the voters and if he compliesm whatever he is tryinng yo hide will come to light.
This man see this Nation for what it is and he believes in this Nation. He thinks by himself and not from those that keep the Black man in a slave state of mind.
I really like Allen West I wish it were he that were sitting in the oval office instead of the usurper.
I would like to see Mitt attack the President as a DESTROYER of the Constitution.
Just a line or 2 thrown into his stump speech, with a solid FACT or 2.
Maybe he can get the Media's attention and get O-BOZO back on his heels.
O-BLAME-O just won't shut up, spewing his deception across this great land is nerve wracking and needs some "CONTEXT" from conservative candidate, not just Allen West.
O-BOZO is acting more and more with dictates, this has to be making independents very nervous.
I think they will swing to Mitt on election day, unless O-UH-OH decides to take on IRAN "with" ISRAEL, but what would his base say and do?
He will do anything to get re-elected, and if that means getting Hillary to change her mind, he will try.
I don't think she wants any part of his vision, she has her own.
I don't care if a person is chartreuse green with iridescent pink polka dots, if they believe and abide in the Constitution, believe in a persons God given rights and uphold the sovereignty of God in this nation....I'll vote for them. Here's a little tid bit you never hear mentioned...ALL and I mean ALL 50 states preambles to their state Constitutions begin with praising, acknowledging and upholding God's personal hand in creating that particular state. So when these half wit nut cases call on the ACLU to stop anything that refers to God they are in direct violation of that states Constitution. I wonder why nobody ever defends a case on those merits ? I am absolutely positively certain Allen West would keep those ideals of God and His Grace for America. THAT'S whats wrong with this nation right now. People need to understand that when God starts judgement He ALWAYS starts with His own people. Even in Biblical times God didn't spare even His own when it comes to judgement. Unless we as a nation return to our Judeo/Christian roots and get serious with God and elect people who are of the same mind set.....we will be a thrid world country in this lifetime. Time is of the essence. God doesn't play games with humanity. As He said..you are either for Him or you are against Him. There is no in between. I have heard Allen West speak on spiritual matters before. This is why I fully and adamantly give Allen West my full support both politically and spiritually to be our next Vice President of the United States of America.
What I love most about Allen West is that he doesn't let ANYTHING or ANYONE hold him back or hold him down. He is the epitome of a true American Patriot both on and off the battlefield.
Yes...America needs Allen West in a greater position in Washington D.C. but more important we need more Allen Wests in Washington D.C.
Allen West continues to put the AWE in AWESOME!!!!! I love this man!!!!
Just keep doing what you're doing West. A lot of people will get what you are saying and there will be Blacks who get it and the liberal veil of dishonesty will be lifted from their eyes and they will discover freedom just as you have. Bless you for your courage.
Now if we could only elect more republicans with even a fraction of the bravery this man displays on a daily basis.
The thing that libs hate about Congressman Col. West is that they *know* he knows the *facts*. The names of the bills, when they were passed, who voted for them. He knows history and he knows America's enemies. Maybe Romney will have the brains to ask Col. West to be SecDef. THAT would be cool!
I of course will vote for Mitt, and I like the guy, however he was not my first choice. this said, I am not sure Mr. West would accept the call to VP , mainly because I think he is seen as a polar opposite of Mitt as to being conservative. And also seen as a stronger leader then Mitt, Mitt is a great manager, West is a true leader. Now all this said, Mitt himself is the more moderate conservative, the VP probably should be a tea party type conservative. See it's a tough call, in a debate with myself I can't even make up my own mind...
I like how a very well educated and informed on point liberal can not match wits with him. typically they try to over whelm someone with an onslaught of big words and progressive talking point jargon. However when they present it to Mr. West, he retorts back at them causing them to crash and burn, with a look on their face of loss and confusion. It really is entertaining.
Obama is not the first Black President. He's the first Alien Presence.
He has no "black" culture. He has a couple of black fathers, neither of who claim him, a white mother who put as much distance between him and her as is possible on this planet. Raised with white Hawaiian pot heads and transformed himself into some kind of Che Guevara with a slice or a latter day Trotsky of Chicago, that brain trust of the nation.
How does Obama have even one follower? He's barely human. No history, no culture, even Jeremiah Wright finds his very existence objectionable.
The folks of South Florida are the brightest people on the planet. To hire this man to speak for them. We the People should hire him to speak for all of us. Well, those that are not Marxist Socialist Communist liberals. Not everyone gets the trophy, but this Man, Allen West, has earned it. Most of the Spineless Congress do not speak for us and have been brainwashed into believing that they do. I think the Lt. Col. and Congressman Allen West deserves the Highest Office in the Land.
Allen West is my hero. He has true personal courage, and I would have been happy to serve with him, in any situation I found myself in my career. Now the however (comma) part. the military strictly promotes on "quotas" as far as race is concerned. I have seen female minorities who were promoted by virtue of "hanging in there and not getting fat". This isnt sour grapes as I made my own career, and my superiors even when inferior did not slow my own personal growth or promotions. Affirmative action hurts the military, but it is almost a dogma thing that one must not speak of. I was the EEO/COO rep for my unit which required some amount of equal opportunity training. the NCO teaching the class was a black female, and she wouldn't even allow us to discuss affirmative action in class. So while I think LTC West is hands down the best man in who works in the circle parking lot; what he said about the military being "truly merit based" is not exactly true.
My military son tells me that the military has gone so far overboard on the promoting of minorities, both male and female, that they NOW must hold white only promotion boards to recover a resemblance of balance.
The military has for too long been the "mothers milk" of social engineering, this is all a waste of time and more important,MONEY.
Let us close some overseas bases and a bunch of obsolete crapola in the USA, then our proud and wonderful members of the ARMED SERVICES can have good ...what should I say "everything", perhaps not, but close would be a good start. Weapons, training and the ability to be known for what they are, not what some jerk in DC thinks of them. x military person...long ago retired.
Allen is the man, he stands up for our country and all of our people, not just the liberals or republicans. He would be a great president, he is honest,and down to earth just a all around good man
I love how he mentions Thomas Jefferson repeatedly. The one true Founding Father who believed in Republican government (Rule of Law) over Federalism (Government Rule).
" Sometime it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question." Thomas Jefferson
With men like Congressman - Colonel Allen West representing us in the halls of congress....I still have hope that the dreams of independentcy of body and mind from the shackles of government will prevail.
He never backs down, the left can't stand it they can't control him!
"America's dirtest job"....that job will be done in November and come January bleach by the gallon will be needed to cleanse the filth and stench left behind in the PEOPLE'S house from bo and his first drag queen....
The TRUTH has NO agenda! That is why I love Col Allen West. He speaks the truth from the bottom of his heart. American needs many like him!
I would love to see a 3rd party run of PALIN/WEST......call it the "freedom party"
I honestly think they would have a good chance.....
Black conservatives are labeled "Uncle Toms". The liberals use this to denigrate those who would differ from them. The TRUE Uncle Tom worked for the slave owner and if a slave became disgruntled, he was sent to Uncle Tom's cabin and talked into not being a problem. Uncle Toms like Jesse Jackson, Al Shapton. Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, etc are the real Uncle Toms as they keep the blacks in line for their liberal democratic masters and are too stupid to know it. This is what Allen West is saying. Thank God, strong black leaders are starting to emerge to change this travesty being played on our black citizens. Without racial hatred liberals could not exist.
This statement by Alan West isn't just a home run statement, it's a Grand Slam! He succeeds in in showing up the mindset and words of liberals, socialists and the republican elites for the racist slander it is.
Colonel West, this old warrior will serve with you on any battlefield anywhere in the world.
Allen West has sworn an oath to uphold the constitution.He has demonstrated his loyalty to his country and men time and again. Does the current leader? The differences between the two are sharply defined. Allen West serving in any capacity (especially VP) would help to lead us back to the Constitutional roots we were founded on.
"For those who have fought for it.Freedom has a special taste that the protected will never know"
West has fought for it.
Love to hear the man talk the talk. Only problem is he has given us reason to doubt whether he'll walk the walk.
Thousands of fraudulent claims were made over the Pigford con job. West voted for it. While he apologized saying he 'might have to take this one in the shorts', We, The People are the ones forced to pay off those parasites.
Allen West would be a great Vice President and then the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT! I wonder how many Conservative Patriots are thinking the same thing I am?? WAY TO SPEAK THE TRUTH, Lt. Colonel West!
I wonder if Allen West is who Schmuckabee has in mind when he says the Republicans are in the grip of hyper-orthodoxy.
"Slavery," to a big government liberal probably conjures up a person in chains standing on an auction block - and his grandiose plans for the nation of course have nothing to do with that. "Slavery," to someone else may mean he works a job he hates and doesn't get paid more than subsistence for, and has no choice about doing it...and he also has little personal freedom. Indeed that probably does describe life under Obama's leadership for many, many, MANY Americans.
A black person raised in Georgia has the experience of people within living memory who were actual, legal, slaves. His view of slavery would be more up-close and personal than the big-government liberal's. I would let that black person have his viewpoint and not knock him for having it.
