We are rapidly approaching the time when the RNC, along with a few thousand voters in Iowa and New Hampshire, will provide us with another candidate for President that either has no chance to win (Dole & McCain), or are U. N. loving, conservatives in name only. One look at the current leader board being thrust upon us and clearly We the People must conduct an immediate and radical interdiction. If not, we will be asked to hold our noses and vote for the lesser of two evils, again. It does not have to be that way.
There is a Reagan Republican in our midst. This man knows that the United States is a force for good in this world. He is a man who knows that the government that governs the least is the one that governs the best. That person is Congressman Allen West. Please Goggle him and watch a few YouTube videos of him speaking. His candor and message will make you want to stand up and cheer.
There is a grassroots campaign to try and convince him to run for President. I recently sent the letter below to his Florida and DC offices. If you want a candidate that you can enthusiastically support, send him a message and copy the RNC.
Dear Lt. Col. West:
I doubt that I will sign up with the group that is trying to convince you to run for President. This is only because like the wise old sage Groucho Marx once said, “I would never join any club who would have someone like me as a member.” However, know that I truly believe that our Republic needs you… now.
I cannot imagine anyone wanting to be President of the United States. I also believe that anyone who wants to be President should never be President. So it came as no surprise to hear you say that it wasn’t your time. To paraphrase, you had not yet paid your dues. Please consider this:
When you made the decision to put the welfare of your soldiers above your career and the financial wellbeing of your family, God smiled. You have indeed paid your dues.
When our new Republic was fraying at the seams and about to come apart, some patriots went to Mount Vernon. When they asked Washington to once again lead our nation, he responded something like, “Have I not yet done enough for our Country?” Of course, he knew there was never a choice. Special men like George Washington and Allen West make the hard choices. It is in your heart. It is in your DNA. It is both your curse and your blessing.
On page 74 of my tiny CliffNotes version of what was destroying America (AR2010), I wrote: “Lt. Colonel (Retired) Allen West is running for a congressional seat in Florida. This man is a proven combat leader, not a pentagon Colonel. Check out the 6 minute YouTube “Bayonets” speech. He would make Ronald Reagan proud. If Colonel West was President rather than Barrack Obama, the world would be a safer place; safer because weakness, real or imagined, leads to aggression by others.”
I have absolutely no right to ask you once more unto the breach. No one does. But…your country needs you. She is in peril. You know this far better than I do.
