In a message to supporters sent on Tuesday, West showed no sign of leaving the political stage.
“As a member of Congress, I was only one vote out of 435. But I was one of a few who once wore the uniform of the United States military and who understood how to wield and preserve American power,” West insisted. “We love our great nation too much to sit back and take our loss in 2012 as the final verdict on America. That’s why I intend to use the new found freedom I’ve been given to take my efforts to defeat the Obama liberal progressive agenda to the next level.”
West also gave a sneak preview of his CPAC address, promising to reveal more of his PAC’s agenda. “When I give the opening keynote address at CPAC on Thursday, I will outline the Guardian Fund’s plans to double our efforts to expose and combat the Obama administration and its progressive plans,” West noted.
Pledging to raise $5 million for his group, West promised to build a “grassroots army to help elect 12 new hard-charging constitutional conservatives who either have a military background or are minorities committed to taking a stand against big government and President Obama for the next four years.”
West also outlined some of the principles of his new group:
“As a soldier, I know what America needs to secure the future for the next generations,” West maintained. “First and foremost, Americans want to be safe. Safe at work, safe at home, safe from radical Islamic terrorism. Second, Americans want to be free. Free to start a business and to reach for the American dream. Free to do what they are promised to be free to do in the U.S. Constitution. Free to retire without debt, without remorse, and without bankrupting their children’s future.”
West ripped into President Barack Obama with a strong personal attack. “Americans want to be respected and told the truth by the leaders they elect. President Obama does not tell the truth nor is he trustworthy. He’s lied about Obamacare, he’s lied about raising taxes, he’s lied about spending, and he’s lied about putting America first.”
