Over The weekend, America lost a hero.

By now, his death is being cheered by our enemies and already, it has been disgraced by Ron Paul WHO TWEETED: “Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that ‘he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.’ Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense.”

Navy Seal Chris Kyle was murdered by a former marine. Shot in the back at a gun range.

Ron Paul should be ashamed of himself.

Chris Kyle was the greatest sniper who ever lived and served 4 tours of duty. That is enough to make him a hero but, it simply wasn’t enough for Chris Kyle.

When asked if he had any regrets regarding his service and his activities as a sniper, Chris answered, point blank…Yes.

He said it wasn’t those he dispatched who haunted him but those Americans, Iraqi’s and other allies he was unable to save.

Chris Kyle recorded 160 kills and some, from as far distant as 21 football fields away.

That is 160 insurgents and terrorists who never again killed an American or an Iraqi who either had or was suspected OF aiding Americans.

Let’s not pretend we knew Chris Kyle. Outside his family, his wife, children parents only a handful of others really knew him.

His SEAL family may have known Chris Kyle better than anyone and because of who he was, what he did and where he was stationed, WE only got to know him because he wrote a book.

Sometimes though, that’s enough to know what sort of man he was.

He loved this country and Chris Kyle loved those who served this country.

Chris, we’re told, stepped up. He dedicated himself to serving those who served…us. When they came home and things weren’t right…They couldn’t sleep, didn’t feel they fit in anymore or suffered flashbacks from what they had seen, Chris Kyle helped them. He took them to familiar settings, places they felt comfortable, and engaged them in an activity they understood.

Chris Kyle took them to gun ranges.

There, they were in an environment they could grasp and with those who shared a passion and common experiences.

Kyle wasn’t alone with Eddie Ray Routh last Saturday at that Texas shooting range, His pal, Chad Littlefield was there too.

Routh, we’re told, may have suffered PTSD but, reports of that have been challenged. Whatever the reason, the 3 men were there and somehow, Eddie Ray Routh shot both Littlefield and Kyle in the back, killing them both.

Clearly Routh was troubled.

He had threatened suicide, threatened to kill his family and had been taken for mental treatment  twice…All over the last 4 months.

We may never know what set Routh off last Saturday but we now know that, he took Chris Kyle’s Ford pickup and drove to his sister’s home about 30 miles south of Fort Worth. When his sister asked whose truck he was driving, Routh told her, “I traded my soul for a new truck,” and then told her what he had done.

Others Could, Newt WOULD…The National Patriot article by Craig Andresen

This article in no way is an endorsement by Congressman Allen West, this endorsement is simply by the writer Craig Andresen of The National Patriot

On October 20th2011, in The National Patriot, I endorsed Newt Gingrich for President. It was early in the race and the debate stage was still over populated. Too many candidates, not enough time to hear real solutions to burning issues.

My endorsement was early and I have not regretted making it. Not for a minute.

Now, as we are down to 4 candidates on the stage, I continue to stand with Newt.

I know there are some who don’t like him and some who believe Newt is evil. So be it.

Of the 4 remaining GOP candidates, I believe, 3 of them could beat Obama.

While Ron Paul’s followers are die hard and in many cases, beyond over the top, I believe they have reached their zenith in numbers – and in truth, there just aren’t enough of them. They will continue to say Paul is the only one who can draw votes from independents and liberals disenchanted with Obama but, I just don’t see that being enough.

While Paul might be able to out debate Obama on fiscal concerns, frankly, this race is not going to be ONLY about fiscal concerns. It’s also about a failed Obama foreign policy. Paul’s stance on foreign policy would be every bit as failing and possibly more dangerous than Obama’s, and neither we nor our allies can risk that.

Eventually, a GOP nominee will be named.

Eventually it will come down to a one on one against Obama.

Without Ron Paul, I believe any of the other 3 could beat Obama.

Is COULD enough to bet on?

A Commander-in-Chief for the GOP in 2012 Must have a good Wing Man

WE THE PEOPLE MUST MAKE OURSELVES HEARD!

My theory, and I think I am spot on. We The People can demand from these candidates to verbalize whom they would choose for their perspective Vice President. I feel it deep down in my heart that if ONE of these candidates could HEAR from us on a Nationwide level that we want them to openly state to the press that their choice would be Congressman Allen West, we could ALTER every single one of these “polls” being conducted and throw a monkey wrench in the system.

I am asking each and every one of you to get ACTIVE, quit saying you are passing this around the social networks. CLAIM THIS, take the time to contact these GOP Presidential Candidates by email, phone, fax, whatever means necessary and tell them that in order to vote for them, they MUST choose Congressman Allen West. Allen West on a GOP ticket will alter the course of these elections and will put someone in the White House that will only help our nation begin it’s journey back to it’s original roots.

I am asking you to not only get this out there in the social networks but get this viral and get up off your butts, dial that phone, send that email or even ALL of the above. Encourage everyone you know that it is imperative that we act now, considering the options set before by the mainstream media, the electorate, the caucus, the polls etc…

HERE are the links to the candidates for your convenience. In no particular order

Newt Gingrich

Rick Santorum

Mitt Romney

Ron Paul

Rep. Allen West exclusive Q and A with Sun Sentinel – Do you favor a candidate? Nope!

By Anthony Man January 4, 2012 05:42 PM

U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, said Wednesday he expects a range of presidential choices when Florida Republicans vote in the Jan. 31 primary, though the field will continue to shrink.

West, the he most prominent Republican in Broward and Palm Beach counties, spoke late Wednesday with Sun Sentinel reporters and editorial writers.

Here’s his take on the results from the Iowa caucuses, the Tuesday kickoff to the Republican presidential nominating contest.

“What you have seen coming out of Iowa with the top three that finished is a broad spectrum across the Republican Party. You have a person that is center to center-left, you have someone that is center to the right and you have a libertarian,” he said.

That refers to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, former Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, and Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who finished first, second and third.

“Now the question is how can they continue to play their message out with the other primaries,” he said. West expects a the field to continue to narrow. “Based upon his performance in New Hampshire, you’ll probably see maybe former Governor [Jon] Huntsman drop out.”

“I really believe that Florida’s going to play a very important role because Florida’s a very diverse state. It’s a very large state. It’s a swing state. And I think it would be really indicative of the way forward as far as this Republican primary.”

Who has the advantage coming into Florida [which holds its primary on Jan. 31]?

“Well, I mean I think that you have to look at the fact that already Governor Romney has a pretty established ground game down here. And that goes back to the fact that he did run in 2008 and so you build upon that. Rick Santorum will have to try to pick that game up as you go through New Hampshire, South Carolina. And Ron Paul is once again, he still has a pretty good ground game. It is already established here from 2008 so we’ll see what happens.”

You described Romney as center-left.

Pajamas Media “Letter to the Republican Presidential Candidates from a Former Democrat”

Dear Lady and Gentlemen,

As you all know, we are living in parlous times, the most economically precarious since the Great Depression and the most militarily threatening since the fall of the Soviet Union. Many of our citizens fear this great country of ours is on the edge of collapse. Desperation stalks the land.

Yet if we were to watch the Republican debates, for the most part, all we see is bicker, bicker, bicker with candidates looking to score points off their opponents. Worse yet, most of these points are based on obscure malfeasances that would have little to do with how those opponents would actually perform as president.

Tuesday night in Las Vegas it almost reached the level of opera bouffe with one candidate vitriolically accusing another of, albeit unconsciously, using an illegal alien in his gardening service (something so common here in Southern California that, were laws enforced, three quarters of the population would be in jail). Nevertheless, instead of waving off this petty accusation or, better yet, turning it into a joke, the second candidate came back even harder. For a moment it almost seemed the two would come to blows – over nothing.

Fellas!

Everybody’s got an ego, everybody wants to win, but if you have to achieve that by cutting down the other guy, maybe you don’t deserve to lead, not these days anyway. Things are too extreme, the stakes too high. We need someone who can rise above it. Maybe even smile.

Why Herman Cain’s poll numbers might rise even higher – The Christian Science Monitor

Riding a wave of good feeling among GOP voters, Herman Cain is now virtually tied with ex-Gov. Mitt Romney at the top of the Republican rankings, according to recent polls.

By Peter Grier

Wow! Herman Cain is rising fast in the polls, about as fast as any GOP presidential hopeful has this year. And that is saying something, considering that in 2011 Republican voter support has been gyrating up and down like the wild ride of the Dow Jones Average.

One moment, Cain’s hanging out with Newt Gingrich in the low single digits. Then, whammo! It’s goodbye, Michele Bachmann. See you later, Ron Paul. Pardon my dust, Rick Perry. Hi, Mitt Romney. Nice to see you. The view sure is great from up here in the top tier.

It’s true. Riding a wave of good feeling among GOP voters generated by strong debate performances, Mr. Cain is now pretty much tied with ex-Gov. Romney at the top of the Republican rankings, according to recent polls.

On Monday, for instance, Gallup released survey figures showing Romney at 20 percent, and Cain at 18 percent. The poll’s margin of error is plus-or-minus four points, so that means the duo’s support is essentially equal.

What’s more, only a month ago the same Gallup poll put Cain at only 5 percent. In this survey his support has tripled within weeks.

U.S. Rep. Allen West (FL) won’t reveal which Republican presidential candidate he favors

Elsewhere in politics:

U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, won’t reveal which Republican presidential candidate he favors, but it’s a safe bet it’s not fellow U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas.

When West was asked at a town hall meeting last week about auditing the Federal Reserve, he didn’t mention Paul’s name but noted Paul’s position as chairman of the Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee.

“I don’t sit on the Financial Services Committee,” West said. “But guess what? The person that’s out going around wanting to be president of the United States is the chairman of the subcommittee that oversees the Federal Reserve. So I would think that maybe instead of running around trying to be the president of the United States, go and do that thing that you have told everybody you want to do.”
