Allen West “Normal? Deception from our President and allowing govt agencies to attack and intimidate American citizens?”


Written by Allen West on October 29, 2013

This past weekend I was invited to speak on the campus of Valdosta State University in Georgia. The city of Valdosta is nicknamed, “Winnersville” because it has produced so many champions. They win, because they expect to win. That’s normal for Valdosta. But it’s no longer normal for America.

The new normal in America, a country now led by progressive socialism, isn’t about making winners or champions. It’s about creating dependents, and we’re all losing.

The new normal in America is a President who openly embraces the philosophy of wealth redistribution, as laid out by Karl Marx: “from each according to their ability, to each according to their need.”

So in pursuit of wealth redistribution policies, the new normal in America means our constitutional republicanism is being replaced by a Marxist/socialist ideal. This ideal is rooted in nationalizing production, broadening the dependency society, a sense of social utopianism

(fair share, fairness, economic and social equality), and most threatening, a secular humanism which replaces God, from whom our individual rights come, to government — trading the “Big G” for the “little g.”

We see this manifested in government spending at almost 25% of our gross domestic product (GDP). And mind you, this is a GDP limping along at around 2 percent growth, a dangerously weak economic recovery. To fuel the growth of this socialist welfare state, our national debt has grown from $10.6 trillion to now over $17 trillion in just five years. We’ve clearly lost control of spending.

Heading to Valdosta, GA where I’ll be speaking to the Lowndes County GOP Saturday at Valdosta State, home of the current NCAA Division II football champions. It’s also the home of Benjamin Franklin “Buck” Belue who was the only quarterback to start all four years for the Valdosta HS Wildcats, one of the greatest HS football teams in America. He led the Georgia Bulldogs to an undefeated 12-0 season in 1980 beating Notre Dame in the Sugar bowl for the National Championship. Who will ever forget the 93-yard TD pass Belue threw to Lindsay Scott to defeat the Florida Gators that year, still tied for longest TD pass in Georgia football history. The big deal about going to Valdosta? They produce champions. America could learn a lot from the folks down in Valdosta, Lowndes County, and that will be the topic of my speech, “Making America Champions Again.”
