Posted on 09/04/2012 7:19:00 AM PDT by T.O.K.
U.S. Congressman Allen West pulled in to a cheering crowd of several hundred on his motorcycle Monday for the Labor Day picnic in Jupiters Carlin Park.
The Palm Beach County Tea Party event featured West as the main speaker and the crowd could not have been more enthusiastic.
West took an opportunity to express his frustration with the behavior of his opponent for the CD 18 seat, Patrick Murphy.

People react to him because he put the lives of his men over his career. Normal people respect true heroes.
This is How the lib media works
A Harley Biker is riding by the zoo in Washington, DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lions cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter has watched the whole event.
The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing Ive seen a man do in my whole life.
The Harley rider replies, Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.
The reporter says, Well, Ill make sure this wont go unnoticed. Im a journalist, you know, and tomorrows paper will have this story on the front page So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?
The biker replies,
Im a U.S. Marine and a Republican
The journalist leaves.
The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:
U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH
“West took an opportunity to express his frustration with the behavior of his opponent for the CD 18 seat, Patrick Murphy. He responded to comments made about the gang patches adorning his riding vest in this passionate clip that brought the crowd to its feet.”
GOT to watch the clip!
Yes indeed. Great clip.
I would pick up a rifle and follow this man in an assault on the gates of Hell. And I’m just a middle-aged lady in less-than-wonderful health. But if he gave the command, I would charge.
Please, Lord, forgive our nation. For the sake of the remnant who love and try to serve You, save us. Give this man a position of leadership for us. We ask this in the Name above all names, the Name against which no darkness can stand—the Name of Your Son. Amen.
How’s West polling?
If that wasn’t so close to the truth it would be funny.
I’d be right behind you, packing my 20 gauge, pump action shot gun.
Unfortunately, it may come to that someday.
Along with Alan West,I see a bright future for The Republican Party and The United States of America!We have SO MANY YOUNG,ENTHUSIASTIC CONSERVATIVES”mixing it up”with The Rats!!No more RINOS who’s”Turn It Is”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lt. Col. West could have an army behind him at a moment’s notice. Millions.
Imagine the headlines, and the impact, if he ever made such a call!
And it would be a call to save our blessed republic!
(Of course, you have to be careful about expressing this because - ahem- the you-know-who’s might be monitoring this site...wink)

Freeper Picnic September 15-16, 2012
Our own FReeper “Travis McGee” (Matt Bracken) wrote a great Trilogy about a disrupted, semi-dystopic future for the USA wherein we fell into chaos and the “South” rallied around a popular conservative military man as their political and military leader who restored leadership and government under benign martial law. One could infer “Travis” borrowed from LTC West’s persona to create this character, but I think the text preceded the rise of LTC West in real life.
I encourage you (and all FReepers) to read and learn from Matt Bracken’s “Enemies Foreign and Domestic” trilogy.
That might not be an altogether bad thing, even if folks like you and me don’t come out of it. Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.
In my dreams, I imagine LTC West in a position of high power negotiating with our enemies....I can just see in their minds what this man does when folks mess with “his men (and women)”....what a great American!
His seat was redistricted so it’s a surprisingly close race. ................................................... If he loses, have him move to the Gulf Coast, we’ll take him.
Unfortunately, in order to win re election, West has to defeat two major political party machines; the Soros/DNC syndicate which is throwing million$ into efforts to defeat him, as well as his own.
I don’t think the RNC has given him a dime, have they? I also think that the republican establishment had a lot to do with the redistricting which puts him at a distinct disadvantage.
BOTH parties want him GONE - right now I think that the TEA Party is about his only organized support group.
I don’t contribute much to anyone, but I’ve sent him a couple of checks already - and I live in Maine. If WE don’t help him, I doubt if anyone else will.
