Allen West Foundation: We face a great catastrophe if we don’t do something now to bring in more conservative veterans to lead this country!
There’s no doubt about it – we have an extreme shortage of veterans who are conservative in our government.
- The number of veterans in public office has been declining for 40 years
- Only 20% of this Congress have served in the military, compared to 80% in 1977
- Of those 106 veterans currently in Congress, 23% are liberal and 77% are conservative
We can’t risk having any more politically correct individuals in office who don’t know the first thing about the military. We suffered the consequences of their incompetence in Benghazi last year . . . and now we’re facing a potential disaster in Syria!
Liberal groups recently revealed they’re targeting veterans too. They said, “[Recruiting liberal veterans] is a concerted effort, and it’s part of a surge of veterans running as Liberals in the last few years” (Politico, 9/17/13).
The Allen West Foundation is the ONLY organization that harnesses the talents of veterans and motivates them to become leaders in the conservative movement. We do this year round.
The future of our country depends on our success – and your support.
Wake up, Patriots! We must be courageous. We must do our duty. We can’t risk losing our freedoms because we’ve forgotten about the ones who faithfully served our country.
Steadfast and Loyal,
Allen B. West
Lt. Col. USA (Ret)
