Col. Allen West is running
American Thinker ^ | 02/11/10 | Alan Fraser

Posted on 02/11/2010 12:10:35 AM PST by American Dream 246

We have written before on congressional candidate Col. Allen West (here and here). Well, thank God he's back. He is running again for Florida's 22nd District seat against his old opponent of November 2008, Ron Klein. It's a district that leans Democrat but had a Republican Congressman for 14 years until Democrat Ron Klein won that seat in 2006.

This is a few months old but remains a must-see little video of an excellent speech Col. West gave in October '09. If you like what you see and hear, jump over to his campaign site and give something to a man who for some many years gave to us.

VIDEO

You know, we hear all the time that "everyone supports the troops." Well a good place to start is by getting some of these guys elected to Congress: Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans For Congress. Check them out.

Agree. . .’now is the time to come to the aid of our Country’ and what better way than to help ‘good guys’ get elected. Our survival - America’s survival - depends on their success.

AND he has a sense of humor. He’s sharp enough to hold his own with the Red Eye bunch.

“Gateway Pundit: Republican Iraq War Hero & Double Amputee Runs For Congress in Minnesota”

http://gatewaypundit.firstthings.com/2010/02/republican-iraq-war-hero-double-amputee-runs-for-congress-in-minnesota/

The double amputee’s name is Sgt. John Kriesel and he’s a Republican candidate for the House of Representatives District 57 seat representing Cottage Grove, St. Paul Park and South St. Paul.

At the link above there is also a picture of GWB pinning on his purple heart at Christmas while Sgt. Kriesel is still recovering in the hospital.

The story of Sgt. Kriesel’s horrible humvee roadside bomb accident and subsequent heroic recovery can be found at the following link.

Col. West would certainly be a better representative of his fellow Americans than his current Traitor in Chief.

Please view the following video sequence that will leave you with no remaining doubt that Obama is a muslim and his intention is to put the USA on the path to becoming a muslim nation.

You know, that is a very interesting question.

It would be the absolute height of hypocrisy for them to bar him for being a Republican. They'd have to admit him, or lose ALL credibility, but there's no doubt that he would get a verrry cool reception from them.

Cooler than global warming.

Amen Brother.

I’ve been focused on exactly that for 2 and a half years now, it thrills me that it is becoming a drum beat.

Go West!

I met Allen as he went from place to place with little or no money starting out in what was assumed to be a waste of time.

Persistence mixed with right, is a good thing and wins the day.

I set up and ran a combat outpost in the same spot West conducted his operations which got him in trouble with the Army Bureacracy, in fact dealt with some of the same people he dealt with in that nasty little city. I fully support his actions then and his candidacy now.

Alan West knows everything about Jihad. He has no illusions about Muslim conquest. Of course he is very conservative in other ways. He is anti-illegal immigration. I have heard him speak a few times

He is the most solid black conservative I can think of

Love ya, Sarge.

Not to be ungrateful to the author, but in fact, Allen is not BACK.

He never went away.

We Florida Freepers know for sure that Allen West is a true patriot and constitutional conservative! We MUST send Allen to Congress in November!

Scott Brown received thousands of donations from across the country that were between $10 to $100. Needless to say thousands of small donations from “we the people” along with spreading the word through email and calling, can and does make a difference! We can elect ANY constitutional conservative we want against the huge DEM/Socialist machine!

Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated to help Allen West in his campaign against Ron Kline. Please help if you can!
