Rep. Allen West “SITEREP – West for Congress – August Edition

Dear Friends,

It has been an exciting and busy few weeks here in South Florida. We won our primary election with 74 percent of the vote and we now have a strong team in Governor Mitt Romney and Congressman Paul Ryan to take the helm of this great ship of state and restore our nation’s greatness and prosperity. The combination of Mitt Romney’s successful record in business and government, and Paul Ryan’s legislative experience and willingness to lead on pressing fiscal problems is just the recipe to get America back on the right path.

I would also like to congratulate all our Republican nominees for state and local office for their victories last Tuesday. The hard road lies ahead, and success will not be ours without the passion and drive of our supporters and volunteers – each and every one of you.

On a personal note, I am humbled by the overwhelming support from the Republican voters of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches, and I am honored to be your Republican nominee for Florida’s 18th Congressional District. Our campaign was successful because we are committed to standing up for conservative principles, and voters want statesmen who have the courage to say what they mean, and mean what they say.

Voters along the Treasure Coast – and indeed the nation – are faced with two very clear choices, and two dramatically different visions for the future of our Republic and that of our children and grandchildren. The results of the November election will determine the legacy we leave to our families. Will it be one of ever-higher unemployment, crushing debt, near-universal dependence on government handouts, porous borders that allow anyone and everyone to feed from the government trough and force the bankruptcy of programs like Social Security and Medicare?

Or will it be a return to our constitutional principles of economic freedom and individual sovereignty, in a country where we have the liberty to prosper without being punished for our success, keep our promises to our seniors, fully utilize our domestic energy resources and once again ensure peace through strength?

Of course, Patrick Murphy is big on criticism and short on ideas. That is why he has refused to debate. Over the weekend his “strategist” said he will not participate in any debate where rebuttals are permitted! I have no doubt that is because he will be lost once he gets off Nancy Pelosi’s talking points!

Predictably, Patrick Murphy (and the left-wing Super PAC funded by this father) has wasted no time in running negative advertising against me because he is incapable of addressing the issues. He talks about “compromise” and “fairness” which are essentially code words for saying whatever he needs to get elected. Once in office, Murphy will simply rubber stamp the policies of 0bama and Pelosi.

Last week Republican voters along the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches turned out in huge numbers to demonstrate they know which vision is right for our country, and which will be victorious in November. We’re energized, motivated, and ready to restore fiscal responsibility, individual sovereignty and economic freedom to this great nation. I am honored to stand with you here in Florida and represent you in Washington D.C. Together we will send a powerful message on November 6th.

Thank you for standing with me on August 14, and your continued assistance on the road to November. Because of you, we have the resources to counter the lies, distortion and smears coming from my Democrat opponent, his left-wing Super PAC allies and his buddies in the liberal media. I look forward to seeing you on the campaign trail over the next 76 days.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen West

Please join me in my efforts to support Disabled Veterans’ LIFE Memorial Foundation!

Transcending conflicts, service branches and generations, the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial will express America’s lasting gratitude to the men and women whose lives were forever changed in service to our country.

For the first time in our nation’s history, we will build a monument to honor and pay tribute to some of America’s most courageous heroes. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial will celebrate those men and women who may be broken in body—but never in spirit.

As these veterans face a life for which no one can prepare, so must their families and friends. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial will also honor veterans’ loved ones and caregivers — individuals whose heroic devotion is a source of strength for those striving to heal.

Thank you for supporting Disabled Veterans’ LIFE Memorial Foundation. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.

Rep Allen West – Statement “Thank you for standing shoulder to shoulder with me!” Deadline TONIGHT!

Dear Friend,

There’s not much time left. Our fundraising quarter ends at midnight tonight.

In just a couple weeks, analysts and activists across the country will be looking at campaign finance reports. We must ensure the momentum’s with us — not the liberals and their destructive policies.

There’s less than 24 hours to send a clear message that we will not stand for Obamacare, the largest tax increase in American history. We need another 100 supporters online and the first 100 folks who help us reach our goal will be shipped a bumper sticker. I’m counting on you to chip in $10 or more here:  AllenWestForCongress.Com

Thank you for standing shoulder to shoulder with me!

Steadfast and Loyal,

LTC(R) Allen B. West
Member of Congress

P.S. Our fundraising deadline is at midnight tonight and we need 100 more contributors online. The first 100 donors who help us reach our goal will receive a bumper sticker. Donate here.

Congressman Allen West’s Conservative Army – Find out how you can help

Every quarter the Federal Election Commission requires every federal campaign to disclose their funds raised, spent, and amount they have in the bank.  These filings are important to every campaign, since the media scrutinize them and draw conclusions about the “health” of a given campaign from them.

But for us, this first quarter filing is more important than most.

This month is our first push to show our opponents nationally that we’re ready to fight, and that the campaign will continue to stand up for what is true and just about our country.

By now you know Allen doesn’t mince words, and I expect he will be particularly outspoken when it comes to calling out the Administration and Democrats in Congress who want to hold our nation back.

But that means the big guns will be aimed at our campaign.  Democrats and their SuperPACs will blanket South Florida with mailers, “robocalls”, and negative TV ads all meant to discredit Allen.  So we need to be prepared to fight back.

I wanted to quickly update you on our campaign and ask you to make an urgent March filing deadline contribution of $25 or more.

And we need your help.
