Posted on 01/26/2014 7:27:17 PM PST by Gene Eric
Allen West appeared on Jesse Lee Peterson's radio program yesterday where he vowed that he will "definitely" make another run for public office.
Claiming that he lost his re-election bid in 2012 because Democrats and Republicans conspired to remove him from office because they knew he was "a threat to us and our business as usual way of ruining this great country," West took pride in being a target and declared that he was not going away.
When Peterson asked West if he had any plans to run for office again in the future, West responded that "oh yeah, I will definitely come back ... In the 2016 cycle, we'll look to getting back in and running myself. Whatever God would have me do"

This is great news, btw.
Yes! That’s what I’m talking about! Colonel West is not a quitter.
Florida senate seat coming up in 2016?
Col. West could pick out a tailor made district, move there and cruise to an easy win. The fact that he is staying in Florida and fighting the b*st*rds on their own turf speaks volumes about the character of the man.
Not sure which office he’s thinking about.
Yes, and its likely to be an open one too.
I was seated next to him on a flight from Ft Lauderdale to Cincinnati after Thanksgiving.
He was giving a presentation at Miami University the next day.
He told me this news at that time.
I’ve always respected him but after talking with him, freely, for three hours, I would follow him anywhere. He is a true American leader.
Very eloquent. Very directed.
I’ve thought of that opportunity every day since and am looking forward to the chance to help him onto the national stage again!
RWW is a great youtube channel. Bryan Fischer is correct it gets the word out.
With Paul, Jindal, Walker and all other conservatives promoting some kind of amnesty and massive immigration hopefully there will be an alternative.
Open Senate seat for Col West? This would be great news!
Same here. What they tried to do to him was a disgrace to this country. He was trying to save the lives of his soldiers. The P-gon and its “lawyers” didn’t think that was the right thing to do. Shooting a pistol off next to a terrorist’s ear should not be a crime.
Now that’s an honor — luck you!
Maybe he’s going after RINO Rubio, but I doubt it.
Jesse Lee spoke at the Free Republic Inaugural Ball in DC in 2001.
It was my wife’s First Class seat but she let me use it so she could sit with my son a couple rows back. Col. West made it a point to cut through some people to shake hands with my 11 year old son as we were getting off. Good guy.
It was really an eye opening conversation. Everything from Birth Certificate to Benghazi to Republican politics. Wow!
Col. West is no quitter, but many of his fellow countrymen certainly are.
Great to hear.
He should be our next president and he should use my tagline in his campaign.
I will definitely give some money to this man and I don’t give money easy.
Take out Rubio. He betrayed his supporters and went native in less than a year.
Best news I have heard in a long time. FIX BAYONETS!
Allen West is one of the relatively few remaining MEN in this country who have a chance at fixing this mess we’re in. That man is a MAN, and I say that as a woman. I can’t imagine him backing off anything, based on what I’ve seen of him.
Has anyone seen him wiffle-waffling on his positions?
If he runs, me sending money to his campaign is a no-brainer.
Thanks for the chiming in!
19 posters — and not one negative negative comment (at least up until now.) Awesome!
If Rubio does for the WH, he won’t pull a Lieberman, and run for both offices..indeed, I expect that he’d resign his Senate seat...which would allow Scott to appoint West...
It wasn’t even nest to the guy’s ear. Everything I have heard and read from the news reports was that it was a few feet away and in a safe direction.
Either way, Allen is a great guy and was a well respected commander. I only wish I was half as eloquent as he is — he is a really tough act to follow or precede in any speaking engagement.
Hopefully he will go after Marco’s seat.
