Skip to comments.Allen West: 'What they need to understand is that I serve a mighty God'
Posted on 09/05/2012 10:50:54 AM PDT by SmileRight
U.S. Congressman Allen West did not get far into his Labor Day speech to the Palm Beach County Tea Partiers before drawing a line in the sand for his trackers.
He began by calling up to the front a young woman with a video camera who was hired several months ago by the Democratic Party to record the hundreds of speeches that West makes as he travels throughout his district.
She is one of two trackers with whom West has become very familiar. He frequently makes a point to acknowledge them, and often sends a message back to those who would use the video against him.
On Monday, though, West chose to engage the tracker in front of the crowd of about 200 supporters, and she obliged him. The feisty freshman congressman...

Thanks for this thread!
Just don’t call the tracker a macaca!

After the next House is seated, West needs to be elected Speaker of the House.
If Rep. West was to be elected by his fellow Reps. to be SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, then we could start to begin, to commence becoming America again!
I think it would \take an Allen West or a Herman Cain, who both resonate with the people, to beat to beat Satan’s candidate. And you’d better believe that Satan has been in charge of this election from the very beginning!
Democrats remove God from their platform and their lives
Oh, They still have a God.
Out with the old, in with the new.
That would be hilarious, if it wasn’t so true!
On the other hand, petty and arrogant men and women, whose minds have been informed and caged in by likewise petty and arrogant dead men like Mao, Marx and Lenin--men of little achievement, believing "we are the ones we've been waiting for" and having the "audacity" to declare such nonsense before the entire world!!!
America's Founding generation had a better idea, acknowledging their own reliance on Divine Providence and "the Supreme Judge of the world."
It was an humble idea, by men of superior intellect, study, and wisdom, and that idea resulted in more individual liberty, more opportunity, more "hope," and more plenty for more people for a longer period of time than the world had ever experienced.
If the recurrent declaration being made by Ryan and Romney that life, liberty, and rights are derived from God--not government--and, if enough opinion makers among so-called "conservatives" will expand, amplify and explain the implicit meaning and implications of that essential idea, then a citizen movement can be created which may end the long night of reliance on government which has been imposed by the arrogance of so-called "progressives."
Our Constitution embodied a UNIQUE IDEA. Nothing like it had ever been done before. The power of the idea was in the recognition that people's rights are granted directly by the Creator - not by the state - and that the people, then, and only then, grant rights to government. The concept is so simple, yet so very fundamental and far-reaching.
America's founders embraced a previously unheard-of political philosophy which held that people are "...endowed BY THEIR CREATOR with certain unalienable rights.." This was the statement of guiding principle for the new nation, and, as such, had to be translated into a concrete charter for government. The Constitution of The United States of America became that charter.
Other forms of government, past and present, rely on the state as the grantor of human rights. America's founders, however, believed that a government made up of imperfect people exercising power over other people should possess limited powers. Through their Constitution, they wished to "secure the blessings of liberty" for themselves and for posterity by limiting the powers of government. Through it, they delegated to government only those rights they wanted it to have, holding to themselves all powers not delegated by the Constitution. They even provided the means for controlling those powers they had granted to government.
This was the unique American idea. Many problems we face today result from a departure from this basic concept. Gradually, other "ideas" have influenced legislation which has reversed the roles and given government greater and greater power over individuals. Early generations of Americans pledged their lives to the cause of individual freedom and limited government and warned, over and over again, that eternal vigilance would be required to preserve that freedom for posterity.

Both Candidate Romney and Paul Ryan repeat the idea that America was based on the idea that our rights come "from God, not government." Many former Presidents have expressed the same conviction. That is the sole reason why our "People's Constitution" considered life, liberty and rights to be unalienable by mere human beings. Such an attitude directs acknowledgement, gratitude and allegiance, according to Madison and other Founders, to a "Sovereign ruler of the world," not to a coercive government made up of imperfect human beings.
The same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe, the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God. (John F. Kennedy - 1961 Inaugural)
May God's blessings be upon our military who protect and defend us all on behalf of this "Unique Idea" underlying our freedom. Lt. Col. West honors them and the sacrifices they have made for the "unique idea" of liberty, under God.
Very well said. Thank you for sharing that information.
What a great and righteous man he is! May God bless and keep him. We need him as president.
Allen West is like the whole State of Texas, just by himself.

I believe Allan West would make a great Speaker. but I also believe that the Republicans are as afraid of him as the Democrats are.
I do not believe Republicans would elect him to that office because he does have the balls to run it.
