If this Republic can once again remember what American leadership looks like, our greatest days are indeed ahead. Let us never again become enraptured by a cult of personality promoting empty rhetoric that is anathema to our fundamental principles and beliefs. As de Tocqueville stated, “America is great because America is good, when America ceases to be good it will no longer be great”. Leaders inspire people to dream great dreams and bring them to fruition, not sell us products. Watch this video – less than a minute. It will make you cry.

In the early 1830’s, a 26-year-old Frenchman named Alexis de Tocqueville traveled America for 9 months resulting in the book, “Democracy in America.” De Tocqueville precisely defined the greatness of America by understanding the uniqueness of her principles and people. Last week in DC I broke bread at Ted’s Bulletin on 8th Street SE with a 29-year-old Aussie named Nick Adams who has spent 9 months traveling America and has written the book “The American Boomerang” which I just finished. Nick is our modern day de Tocqueville, a foreigner who articulates to us the exceptionalism of our own country. I recommend every true American read these two books by de Tocqueville and Nick Adams. Nick, because of your words, I reaffirm my oath to the Constitution and pledge to my fellow true Americans my life and sacred honor to defeat progressive socialism, secular humanism, and radical Islamism, all of which are apparently embraced by Barack Obama. I ask that those who know the power of prayer, pray my strength and courage through God’s divine providence. Game on. Steadfast and Loyal.

Rep. Allen West Op-Ed “The republic cannot survive so much dependency” WSJ Marketwatch

By Rep. Allen West

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Gov. Mitt Romney’s comments about the percentage of Americans who have grown economically dependent on the government for their sustenance, and as a result, see little benefit in changing course, is neither new nor outrageous.

More than 170 years ago, the French political thinker and writer, Alexis de Tocqueville saw this coming, and warned of its dangers in his most famous writing, Democracy in America. Here is an excerpt below:

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.”

Our public treasury cannot sustain further “largesse.” Our national debt has ballooned to more than $16 trillion. The top 25 percent of wage earners contribute 87 percent of all tax revenue and it is numerically impossible to tax them sufficiently to pay for this expansion of federal government – let alone pay down our debt. For another viewpoint, read Rex Nutting’s column on the 47%.

Our entire fiscal and monetary policy is now based on one simple axiom: What we cannot tax, we borrow, and what we cannot borrow, we print.

The path we are on in 2012 is perilous and unsustainable. We must change course.

This November, Americans will not simply be choosing one man or another as president, they will be choosing the future direction of these United States of America.

The question is not whether one candidate is nicer or more likable or even easier to relate to. The fundamental question all Americans must ask themselves is what kind of a nation shall we be? And what does it mean to be an American?
