Congressman Allen West – “24 Hours”

I hope you are enjoying a well-deserved holiday with family.

I want to take just a moment during this very busy time of the year to remind you about our year-end deadline and also ask for your immediate help.

I am hoping that you can donate $25 or more at our website right now. I need to hear from you in the next four days. Here’s why:

As you may recall, every three months the Federal Election Commission requires federal political campaigns to report how much they have raised and spent. And our next deadline is this coming Saturday — just 100 hours away.

It’s important for every campaign to post a strong report end of the year report. But it’s absolutely critical for us.

By now, you know the story. Our conservative army has been very critical of the Obama Administration and both parties in United States Congress. As a result, some of the most powerful people in Washington, D.C. want to see us gone.

They’re pulling out all the stops to defeat me as a rebuke to our conservative army.

I’ll tell you something — they don’t scare me. I’ve fought on the battlefield in the U.S. Army. I have defended our nation on foreign soil. I’ve fought my entire life for what I believe in – what we believe in. And today, after a year on Capitol Hill, I pledge again in 2012 to continue to fight on your behalf.

But this fight will not be easy and we need to fund this effort fully — and that’s where you come in.

Your financial support of our conservative army will be the difference between us winning and losing next November. It’s that simple!

National Democrats are raising millions of dollars to try and defeat us in the next election.

This report — the last one of the year — is “make or break” for our campaign.

We need to not only match what they have raised, but exceed it.

Only 24 hours remain in this fundraising period. If you have not yet done so, please support our conservative army by making a special year-end contribution of $25 or more to my re-election campaign.

I will continue to fight for our values but our success or failure will depend on your continued commitment to our cause.

Thank you so much for your support.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Congressman Allen B. West (R-FL)
Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army, Retired

P.S. Your donation of $25 or more will help us match and exceed the fundraising the Democrat Machine is doing right now. Please make your contribution within the next 100 hours at my website right now. Thanks and I will update you on our progress in 48 hours.

Congressman Allen West (R-FL-22) brought conservative politics to the Barry Kaye Auditorium on Nov 10.

West, whose district encompasses the Palm Beach and Broward coastlines, spoke to around 200 students and faculty about the economy, recently passed bills and the importance of maintaining conservative values in today’s society.

After he was done speaking students and faculty were permitted to ask him questions.

In regards to education, West said he’s against  FCAT and the No Child Left Behind Act. “FCAT isn’t teaching [students],” West said, “It makes you a robot. We need a revamp of education.” West did not elaborate on what that revamp would entail.

Palm Beach TownHall Today Rep Allen West says “We must change U.S. fiscal policy”

By: Michele Dargan – Palm Beach Daily News

U.S. Rep. Allen West discussed the federal budget, mounting deficits, taxes, jobs and security threats to the country Tuesday during a town hall meeting at The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea.

West said the number one priority of Congress must be passing a federal budget. The deficits are mounting and the country cannot keep functioning with 41 cents of every dollar being borrowed, a debt of $14.7 trillion and a continued increase in spending, he said.

“The spending increase this year has resulted in a third record year of deficits in the United States of America,” he said.

About 200 people packed the parish hall as Mayor Gail Coniglio introduced West, a Republican whose District 22 includes Palm Beach.

Coniglio described West as an “active advocate” for the town as well as a friend, particularly on the issue the town’s beaches.

“As a champion of bureaucratic deregulation, he has brought a common-sense approach to loosen the handcuffs of the federal regulatory process,” Coniglio said.

Following a walking tour of the town beaches last spring, West led “a collective letter to the U.S. Corp of Army engineers demanding their cooperation to reduce the cost and permit timeline for coastal matters,” Coniglio said.

“If we’re going to get the federal government lined up, we need to have a balanced budget amendment,” West said. “That means that what we have coming in is what goes out. … It gets us operating within some parameters. Right now, we’re not operating within any parameters in Washington, D.C.
