“he is not with traditional conservatives on the social issues”
BS. This is from one of his recent speeches:
The question remains, can a nation long endure or can a civilization long endure that does not respect Life? Our Liberty comes from our Creator and our freedoms depend upon a respect for Life.
In order to protect the unborn from the very moment life begins, I introduced the Life at Conception Act during my first year in the Senate. I have also cosponsored several other pro-life bills including the Life at Conception Act, the Protect Life Act, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, and the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act.
I also strongly support a Human Life Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which would confirm in law that an unborn child is a person entitled to the right to life and support legislation that would restrict federal courts from hearing cases involving abortion. State governments must be allowed to implement laws that protect life.
It is the governments duty to protect life, liberty, and property, but primarily and most importantly, a government must protect life. Today, tragically our nation wavers; our moral compass is adrift. Today, I worry about our nations future. Together a brighter tomorrow is possible if we join hands to restore our nations virtue.
To respect life and to listen to the voice of God that lives and breathes and beckons and yearns for our attention. When America remembers and restores her respect for life, when America refinds her moral bearings then we will thrive again, then we will find our way.
I will never give up fighting for the lives of our unborn children. May God bless America.
He’ll have my vote.
Gov Walker / Allen West,
Rand Paul / Allen West
Allen West / Rand Paul
Allen West / Gov Walker
Any combination thereof is fine with me.
Excellent news and even if he weren’t a conservative Christian I could support an electable small government libertarian. He really cannot change all that much and would spend any political capital shrinking government. I am all for that.
Let’s support federalism. A simple tax code amendment eliminating the marriage bias and you just killed same sex marriage on the national stage. Let the states decide.
