The American Spectator: Allen West: In Search of Giants

By 

Former Rep. Allen West has no plans to run for reelection — but he wants to help conservative minorities and military veterans win seats in Congress.

“I asked myself, ‘How can I help the next generation of minority conservatives?’” West told TASin an interview. “I could go back and try to get back into Congress. But it’s not about ‘I.’ there’s no ‘I’ in team.…If you’re going to do what’s right by ‘Team America’, it means getting constitutional conservatives, getting people that can make a difference — especially when the other side is saying this is just the party of old white guys.”

West’s Guardian Fund politial action committee aims to raise $5 million to help 12 conservative candidates running in 2014 — specifically, minority candidates or ones with military backgrounds, groups that West says are severely under-represented in the legislature.

“This country used to look to the military for elected leaders,” West said, “and we want to help change that again.”

The Guardian Fund takes off from West’s earlier contributions that helped 13 military candidates win in the 2012 election.

Allen West “Today I’m thrilled to introduce our new PAC, the Allen West Guardian Fund”

Patriot,

I’m not known as one to mince words.

On FOX, CNN, Meet the Press, and every TV show I’ve ever been on, I’ve said what I meant and meant what I said. That’s why my life of service is rooted in leading. It’s why people like you respect me for saying what I think – candidly, hon­estly, and succinctly.

As a Member of Congress, I was only one vote out of 435. But I was one of a few who once wore the uniform of the United States Military and who understood how to wield and preserve American power.

We love our great nation too much to sit back and take our loss in 2012 as the final verdict on America. That’s why I intend to use the newfound freedom I’ve been given to take my efforts to defeat the Obama liberal progressive agenda to the next level.

Today I’m thrilled to introduce our new PAC, the Allen West Guardian Fund. When I give the opening keynote address at CPAC on Thursday, I will outline the Guardian Fund’s plans to double our efforts to expose and combat the Obama Administration and its progressive plans, but I wanted you to be the first to know about this exciting news.

Join me in building a grassroots army to help elect 12 new hard-charging constitutional conservatives who either have a military background or are minorities committed to taking a stand against big government and President Obama for the next four years.

But this isn’t about me; it’s about America. And I can’t do it alone. So I’m asking you to stand firm as we continue this fight because that’s what our country needs and what the next generation, our children and grandchildren, deserve!

Will you stand with me by contributing $25, $50, $100 or more to the Allen West Guardian Fund today?

America is the land of the free and the home of the brave. But which one will prevail over the next four years depends on you, me, and how we together fight to win the battle for our beloved country. That’s why we’ve set an ambitious goal of raising $5 Million in the next 24 months to fund this operation. 

As a soldier, I know what America needs to secure the future for the next generations.

  • First and foremost, Americans want to be safe. Safe at work, safe at home, safe from radical Islamic terrorism.
  • Second, Americans want to be free. Free to start a business and to reach for the American dream. Free to do what they are promised to be free to do in the U.S. Constitution. Free to retire without debt, without remorse, and without bankrupting their children’s future.
  • Third, Americans want to be respected and told the truth by the leaders they elect. President Obama does not tell the truth nor is he trustworthy. He’s lied about Obamacare, he’s lied about raising taxes, he’s lied about spending, and he’s lied about putting Ameri­ca first.

The bottom line-America is heading down the wrong path. The liberal progressives in Washington view the United States of America as their experimental laboratory for their failed left­ist policies, and we must stop them. That’s why I’m asking for your support of the Allen West Guardian Fund today. Please follow this link to contribute $25, $50, $100 or more today.

Thank you in advance for your support and God bless America.

Steadfast and loyal,
Allen West
Lt. Col. Allen B. West, USA (ret)
U.S. Congressman (2011-2013)

P.S. Now that I’m not constrained by my duties of as a Congressman, I can focus my efforts on revealing the truth about Barack Obama’s dangerous plan for America and the left’s progressive social experiments. I’m thrilled to announce the Allen West Guardian Fund which will help to elect 12 new Constitutional conservatives and defend our Constitution. But I’m counting on you to help us raise $5 million over the next 24 months. Please follow this link to contribute $25, $50, $100 or more today.

Rep Allen West “We will fight back and I need you to join the fight today”

Fellow Conservative,

This week we learned radical leftist billionaire George Soros has agreed to bankroll a new SuperPAC aimed at defeating our campaign this November.

Soros has pledged up to $5 Million for the effort to distort my record and defeat the conservative principles you and I believe in. This is in addition to two other left-wing SuperPACs, massive ad buys by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, out-of-state, occupy-style protesters descending on the district, paid canvassers bank-rolled by union bosses, and a liberal media intent on defending the ‘progress’ they’ve made the past three years.

We will fight back and we need you to join the fight today. Donate what you can here:https://www.allenwestforcongress.com/contribute/.

If we’re going to repeal Obamacare, stop Barack Obama’s $494 Billion Taxmageddon, prevent amnesty for illegal immigrants, balance the federal budget, and protect the American Dream as you and I know it — we absolutely need to retain our Majority in the US House.

I’m the liberals’ number one target and defeating me is a key part of their plan to return the Speaker’s gavel to Nancy Pelosi. We absolutely can’t allow them to win.

I pledge to you that I will never back down and I will continue to present a stark contrast based on proven conservative principles and solutions to the problems facing our nation.

I hope you’ll stand strong with me by making a contribution here:https://www.allenwestforcongress.com/contribute/.

Thank you!
Steadfast and Loyal,

LTC(R) Allen B. West
Member of Congress
