Sometimes we make plans and events overtake us.
I was planning to send you an email today as a gentle reminder to our supporters to donate today.
But the speech by President Obama not only reinforced why it is so important to support our effort, but added urgency to this message.
I’ve been openly critical of the President’s counterproductive policies, and you can expect to hear a lot from me in the next few months.
Voters elected me because they know I am not afraid to stand and fight. Americans won’t take Obama’s new proposed tax increases — and declaration of “class warfare” — lightly.
Our economy is struggling, to put it mildly. The last thing we need is more new taxes.
From a President who claimed he wanted to unite the country, I find this speech completely unbelievable.
But it underscores why we must continue to fight and have strong, unafraid voices speaking out for common sense and for voters in Florida and across the country — not for professional politicians in Washington.
Democrats in Washington already have my picture on a wall naming me as their top target for defeat. They’re probably making copies of it now and distributing it through their campaign operation.
We can’t retreat. That’s why I am calling in the reinforcements — friends like you.
And thank you — as always — for standing side by side with me as we fight.
Steadfast and loyal,
LTC(R) Allen B. West
