Allen West is currently running for United States Congress in Florida's 22nd District. A retired United States Army Lieutenant Colonel, West is an amazing conservative politician, decorated soldier, orator, historian, and defender of the Constitution. The following speech is from February 19, 2010 at the FREEDOM DEFENSE INITIATIVE INAUGURAL EVENT at CPAC, hosted by Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller.
Personally, I hope Allen West makes a quick rise in the political realm before the 2012 presidential election. This is the type of man, with the convictions that he has, that needs to be in the Oval Office and protecting our rights and liberties. God Bless Allen West and his principled leadership.
"If an American is to amount to anything he must rely upon himself, and not upon the State; he must take pride in his own work, instead of sitting idle to envy the luck of others. He must face life with resolute courage, win victory if he can, and accept defeat if he must, without seeking to place on his fellow man a responsibility which is not theirs." - Theodore Roosevelt
