Rep. Allen West “Prayers for those hit by the storm, and a few other thoughts this week”

To our Constituents, fellow Floridians, and all Americans, greetings,

There will be no weekly update for this week as the predominant topic would be the RNC Convention and according to ethics rules it cannot be discussed using official Congressional channels.

However, let me take a moment to express a few thoughts. First of all my wife Angela, daughters Aubrey and Austen, and myself  want to convey our most sincere thoughts, prayers, and condolences for those here locally, in Florida, and across the Gulf States region who have suffered and lost friends, loved ones, and their homes as a result of Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac. May God be with you at this time and wrap His loving arms around each of you.

And as we prepare to enjoy another Labor Day, even with gas prices skyrocketing to an average of $3.79, please remember our men and women in uniform who labor everyday to be our Guardians of America’s honor, and our liberty, freedom, and democracy. Keep them in your prayers this weekend as you enjoy your last days of summer.

In closing, to the 23 million Americans who are unemployed, like Lynn, who I met Friday morning coming back from Tampa at the Racetrack gas station in Okeechobee, the underemployed, and the discouraged Americans who seem to have just given up…gird yourselves to find courage and strength on this coming Labor Day weekend knowing the Cavalry is mounting up and coming to your rescue.

The greatness and exceptional nature of America and Americans shall always triumph over the misconceived empty promises and failed policies of one individual and his blind disciples.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen

Happy Holidays from Congressman Allen West – Great Video

It is so important for us to focus on our families and our future at this time.

We hope this weekend — and this season — will provide you with the opportunity to reconnect with your loved ones and your communities.

On behalf of the entire team, Happy Thanksgiving.

Steadfast and Loyal,

P.S. Please take a moment this weekend to remember the thousands of men and women in uniform who are away from their loved ones this Thanksgiving. Thank you again.
