“Principles, pragmatism, passion and leadership” the many qualities of Rep Allen West
by Tanya Grimsley
In a recent interview I read about Congressman Allen West he said four words. Principles, pragmatism, passion and leadership. He does not back down nor will he let his guard down. A husband, father and Congressman with morals, principles and a heart as big as the state of Texas. His love for this country runs deep, he served consecutively 22 years to defend her and it’s citizens against all enemies as he wore the uniform in the United States Army. He chooses his words for good reason and does not “walk them back” even though time and time again he is asked by the media. “Absolutely Not!” is the answer and he states very pragmatically and with passion why he will not. Why should he? He is right!
Currently Congressman West faces a tough run for election in a newly redrawn district. It is pretty evenly split down party lines. But, here is where things get ugly. West, has a nation of grassroots support and gets most of his funds from the average Joe. There are no huge SuperPACs, just common people like you and I. The Democrats are pulling out all the stops where this “meager” district race is concerned. A swell of huge Soro’s funded and liberal PACs are standing in line to play fast and furious with an Army Veteran’s reputation, his family life and more. They will not be satisfied with simple paid protesters and TV Ads spreading the initial seeds of doubt into a future constituents head, not a chance! They are out to “Take Down Allen West” “Dump West” they want him out of the political scene for good. West is not just a mere threat, he is a promise! A promise to stand by this country he loves, to defend the oath he gave many years ago, to run through the fires of hell and back again to ensure her citizens have economic freedoms, choices and a safe haven to lay their children and their grandchildren’s heads each night. He is just one man, he is not running for the highest office in the nation, so why all the fuss?
West is more than just a meager Congressman running for election. He is a force to be reckoned with, a driving force that ignites both the Republican and Tea Party base. Able to speak without a teleprompter, notes or a predetermined answer and has an astounding knowledge of the US Military, Foreign Affairs and History. The intellect he brings to the table is unmatched by most, especially those who like to take his words and spin them for their latest “headline grabbing title” for readership. The rhetoric they claim to hate from the right does not compare to some of the most vile personal attacks heaped upon him and his family daily.
You see, he never had to run for Congress, he chose to! Allen West had a desire to continue to serve his country in a capacity that only few in our Congress understand. Honor, values, faith, love of God and Country and above all, a voice for “We the People”. Ask yourself these questions, why are they trying to silence him? Why would Soro’s and son go out of their way to do this? And most importantly What will you do today to make a difference? Will you remain silent?
“If you can’t stand up for him and the values, principles and leadership we all claim to want back in this nation, who will you stand up for?”
I stand at the ready, steadfast and loyal with Congressman Allen West and his family.
