Allen West’s keynote speech for CPAC 2011

Allen West delivered the final speech to end CPAC 2011 and it was amazing! He spoke on the three pillars of conservatism: effective and efficient constitutional government, peace through strength, and staying true to our American values. It was truly amazing.



Enjoy!

Seems he was wrong with regard to cutting 100 billion off of the federal budget. It turns out that even though the total was 39 billion, when compared to last year almost no cut. Way to go repubs, keep this up and our republic might last another 20 years.

Dear Cong. West, PLEASE run for 2012 POTUS!!! You are the EXACT antithesis to Barry Soetoro!! (I call him this because we presume he was adopted by Lolo Soetoro, as WE HAVE SEEN that he was registered for school in Jakarta, Indonesia as Barry Soetoro, and no documenting evidence has been shown that he reapplied for American citizenship~which still does not answer the question of dual citizenship at birth even IF he was born in Honolulu & not Kenya as his Kenyan birth certifcate shows~Victoria Province, city of Mombassa.) You represent EVERYTHING Obama is not!!!! You are the only American (other than maybe Herman Cain or Donald Trump) that the vast numbers of victims of plantation politics in America would even give an an ear to. You can debate Obama and WIN every time! NONE of our lily white Republican candidates has a chance against Obama. Yes, race does factor… Read more »

West supportedPresident Reagan was not originally a supporter of the 1964 Civil Rights Act a coward of a man who also was against MLK holiday and started his campaign in Miss where civil rights workers were murdered!!

Yet Black apologists like West get money and support from backward hillbilly conservatives the same clowns who voted for Reagan..WTF..I am a Vietnam Veteran and it pisses me off that I fought for bigots like Reagan and Uncle Toms like West..WTF

What’s your real problem? Raceism can’t be the real reason. Why are you angry? What is the real problem? I believe there will be more blacks in heaven than whites. Those blacks did not need to play the race card. They loved as they were loved by God. They left there hate behind. Open your eyes.

Allen West would make a great president. West is an ordinary man rising to an extrordinary call. West has very very clearly pointed to the line in the sand that Obama has drawn that should be obvious to us all. West is appalled at what Obama has done and is doing to this country. Where others are equovical and politically correct, West bravely states the truth and all the truth. He leaves no rock unturned. Mitch Daniels would make a good running mate to West and bring the experience that West does not have. West/Daniels for 2012. West could inspire all of us to stand up and answer this call to extrordinary times.

Dear Lt. Col. Allen West,

George Washington didn’t want to run for president either, but he did it because America wanted him- and out of a sense of duty to the people he would represent. He said he would serve his “country in obedience to its call.” Mr. West, your country is calling. We can’t wait until it is too late.

This is not about a cult of personality, it is about the honor and integrity you would bring to the office. We need you.

Sincerely,
The Hopeful Americans

To everyone else,

You can help this happen,

Do we really want another conservative Christian president who will entrench us in the middle east based on his idea of “moral majority” or do we want a true conservative like Ron Paul who will bring about real reforms to Washington.

What the hell are you talking about same ole boiler plate of the 80’s. You didn’t even look at the link it talks about Imperial Gangbangers, that is criminals in uniform. Nothing like a republican who thinks militarism is the end all.

Here’s a joke, at CPAC, they gave the protector of the constitution award to Rummy. I guess no one snuck in and stole it on his watch, not that he or you would have noticed “it is just a piece of paper”.

And you got that Patriot Act extension passed today, good job, another protection of the the bill of rights, maybe Boehner can get the protector of the Constitution award next year, because it still won’t be stolen or valued by him.

Just what has the fact that there are criminals in the military have to do with West? We have criminals everywhere, if there were no criminals in the military we would have no need of the UCMJ would we? As far as the extension of the three surveillance provisions goes,they still have to pass the Senate and be signed by the President. BTW, you are aware are you not that the extension is only for nine months, not the extension until December 2013 that the administration and Democrats prefer,right? http://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/2011/02/14/house-votes-extend-patriot-act/

having visited the site you posted and a couple of related ones, now i understand your mindset and I understand your comments. They are the result of your not understanding the difference between good and evil. Anyone who would not destroying an evil,if you have the opportunity, is MORE evil than the one committing the evil in the first place. God designed us to follow him and to use what ever means necessary to protect life and liberty. We don’t use violence FIRST, but when it is necessary it has to be done.

You show the typical intellectual shallowness of a Leftist. So he speaks about American vaules, exceptionalism, and the need for self-reliance and that makes him a Facist?

Or is it the part where he doesn’t think being weak is a good thing? Is that what makes him so Hitleresque in your mind?

Or are you simply using some work your pony-tail wearing community college instructor used and think it might apply?

I listened again to Mr. West’s speech and I felt SOOOOOOOOOOO proud to be an American! He has so many great ideas for undoing what has been done to Americans and to America in the last several years. I feel he would be a perfect President because he knows right from wrong – and knows what America needs.

I feel our current President is way over his head – czars and non-business people in charge. After listening to Obama, I am depressed because of his constant campaigning and no substance. I m-a-k-e myself listen to him. It is so very painful!!!!!!

WE NEED ALLEN WEST – AMERICA NEEDS ALLEN WEST.

Well I gotta say he says all the “Hawkish” rhetoric defense contractors love to hear. The reality is this man would never be president, not because he is not qualified, but because the investors don’t want a real war. I feel this Colonel would take us to war in Texas with Mexico. Some might say that is what is needed , but the ones that say these things are never involved in a real way, or send thier children into harms way. Even Palin’s son is inna “safe” area, and Joe Biden’s. I will say this, there are no opponents to remove Obama unless he is defunded, so much money comes to him through bogus donations. I am rambling, so I will say this, West is a great voice in the wilderness.
