Rep LTC Allen West ~ Greatness In This Hero!!!

Transcript from The Right Scoop

Speech given April 1, 2011

Thank you for being here because this shows your commitment to your country. This shows your commitment to the principles and values upon which this country was established. And you know some of the things that people continue to ask me, they continue to ask me “well, why won’t you compromise, why won’t you negotiate?”. We’ll let me tell you something. Abraham Lincoln said very succinctly, he said “plant your feet in the right place and then stand firm”, and so I’m gonna be standing firm.

When I was a young Lieutenant and I was going through airborne school, the sergeant black hat said very simply:
If you set the bar low you jump low. ” You did not send us up here to set the bar low. You sent us up here with some expectations. You sent us with a mandate. You sent us up here believing that we were here to do the things, to turn around this great ship of state called the United States of America. Because right now, this leaderless, rudderless ship is out in the maelstrom about to get tossed on the rocks.

And I’m sick and tired of hearing everyone talk about this great constitutional, conservative grass roots movement called the Tea Party. I am sick and tired of them trying to blame you, I am sick and tired of them trying to castigate you in a negative manner. No one says anything about; no one says anything about Organizing for America. You are what this country was founded upon and I am glad to be standing her with you.

We are not here to talk about shutting down the government. But if you want to know about shutting down the government, go right over there and talk to Chuck Schumer, go talk to Harry Reid, go down to 1600 Pennsylvania and talk to the President. We’re here to talk about the incredible fiscal irresponsibility.

And I gotta tell you something. Why would I want to sit down and compromise with people who enhanced this problem we have in America with the three years of deficit spending – 1.42 trillion, 1.29 trillion, 1.65 trillion. The debt in the past four years has gone up 5 trillion dollars. Why do I want to listen to people like that. Because I don’t think that they are going to give me any good solutions.

The bottom line is this: we have got to turn this ship around. I am not going to lower my standards, I am not going to do anything but stand upon the values you sent me up her for!

For twenty two years you asked me to do one simple thing. You asked me to always protect your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. You asked me to guard the great symbols of this country. In November of 2010 you gave me the privilege and honor of to take off a uniform, put on a suit and tie and continue to serve you.

I will continue to protect you. I will continue to protect your life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. I will not let you down!

God bless you all, God bless America, and thank you to the tea party.

Watch him as he's speaking. No teleprompter or prepared speech. I didn't even see him looking down at notes and he still spoke facts and figures. What this man is saying, he believes in his heart.

Col. West tells it like it is. I was very impressed with him when the Army gave him the shaft..As for 2012 I really like Trump. I like
what he said about Iraq and Iran ,blunt and to the
point.. I liked it when he said Obama was to busy
kissing ass to get anything done.And most of all
look you in the eye and bluntly tell you what he thinks...

Col West never leaves anyone with a doubt. West always gets right to the point. I would love to see a West/obama debate. It would be verbal murder.

gataor, I like what Trump said how he will secure our Southern Border by sending troops to guard it.

I am a great fan of Col. West and I also like Herman Cain...both are men of integrity....

Posted by: Dani at April 2, 2011 05:49 PM

Wonderful input, thank you all so much.

Dani, yes Herman Cain is excellent too. I have been reading about him more and more lately.

Gator, I love how Trump speaks out about obama and he does it so strongly which so few do. We need more of this and then I pray people will listen and see how bad obama really is for all of us and for America.

Are we getting filth with well qualified people!?
West and Cain are ready for the Vice Pesidency amd will be ready for the Presidency. An Alaskan Govenor who did more for this country energy than the last the Presidents. The most responsible Goveernor of NJ in over a century. The list goes on and on. If we can only keep the good old boys out of it it is in the bag.
