“Bring it on, Baby!”

The video below shows Rep. Allen West speaking to his constituents a few days ago in the 22nd District of Florida. Col. West directed a few choice words at Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and other Democrats:

Hat tip: Nick.

People need to know that the Florida legislature, which is controlled by Republicans I think, is currently in the process of redrawing congressional districts such that Allen West's district will be ELIMINATED! I heard Congressman West being questioned about this yesterday, on a radio talk show, and he confirmed that this is the case.

When asked why this is happening, he repeated that he didn't know (he may but may not want to say why publicly). When asked what we can do to help, he said we could contact the Florida legislature. I'm sure this will be most effective coming from citizens who actually live in Florida, but I'm wondering if a nation-wide protest may also have some effect.

We tend to just decry these events while almost accepting them, in the sense that we sometimes feel powerless and we read about so many outrages that we can't possibly respond to them all.

But this is a case that is worthy of our attention and our activism. Allen West is one of the few hopes in Congress. We can't afford to lose him.

I have heard him before, and I have noticed reactions to him, even fans of him, and with this, again, I am convinced this a person about as far away from color or victimhood you can get.


This is on a different level. It is about politics and a profound sense of what is right and wrong. This is about real stuff.

Again, it is amusing. Because so many are adhering to a certain person first and last because of the skin color/African history/victimhood.

While this Man(...), on the contrary, is a person you want to listen to and take seriously. You've just got to love it.


Bring it on, Baby!

I'll tell you what, this man is an ex military officer I believe. If I was in a foxhole and that man said, let's go boys, I'd go. Why isn't Allen West running for president ... of the universe!

The way he talks about his nephew, and other male relatives, I understand that he is a military officer. And, very likely, excellent at that, too!

Great show!

Now all he needs, is to understand just a little more about economics and the monetary fascists at the Fed (a whole lot more, I reckon), and Allen West would be ideal. "Staying Red" ain't gonna do it. These deranged, Big Gov, "National Greatness" Cons, daring to call themselves "conservative", will still utterly demolish and bankrupt America. Running an overseas empire and, oh yeah, "balance the budget".. Right..

I wish Allen West was the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.

God bless you too, Col. West.

And when you're running through Hell with a can of gasoline, see if you can't splash some on the devil and his minions.

Honestly, I've heard him speak before, and was very impressed by him. What bothers me is he is (seemingly)unable to grasp how critical the job situation is for many of us. I get the idea he thinks it's always a matter of being unwilling to work. Jobs are few and far between in too many communities.

Well, a part of the problem might be that government, by nature, doesn't create jobs or economic opportunities. Government exists to limit the sphere of human action, and that's what it's been doing with ever greater enthusiasm.
