A few excerpts from Congressman Allen West's Weekly Wrap-Up:
I believe we are headed towards the ultimate ideological clash in America. There is a widening chasm which has developed between those who believe in principled fiscal policies and those desiring the socialist bureaucratic nanny-state. An unfortunate aspect to this is the complicity of a mainstream media which does not report facts, but rather ideological bias. This clash will determine the future and legacy of our Constitutional Republic.That's how a real leader speaks.
I know who wins in the end, but it is going to be one heck of a fight.
This week the House GOP shall vote on a plan that will enable us to protect the full faith and credit of the United States but also tackle the long-term fiscal viability of our nation. The plan is summarized by the concept of “Cut, Cap, and Balance.” Our Congressional office issued a statement on Friday which explains the legislation, of which I am an original cosponsor - you can click here to view.West was one of the original cosponsor's of "Cut, Cap, and Balance." Interesting.
We must have equitable and immediate spending cuts to our non-defense discretionary spending. We must cap federal government spending as per the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), currently near 25%, down between 18-20% putting it in line with revenues. And lastly, we must have a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution which will force us to prioritize and operate within our means, similar to American households and many state governments.There's a lot more, then West moves on to Obama's war in Libya:
As for President Barack Obama, he has no such plan. He has never had a plan, just words, just speeches. His Budget for Fiscal Year 2012 failed 0-97 in the United States Senate. Speaking of the Senate, it has been over 800 days since the Senate, under Democrat control, has passed a budget.
In the area of foreign policy, the United States has officially recognized the Libyan rebels as the “legitimate” government of Libya. Now, I am just a simple fella from down South, but I recall a previous Democrat President recognizing a bunch of undefined ideological zealots called the Taliban…and we all see how that ended up!West wraps up his wrap-up like this:
I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool.Heh.
Then he signs it:
Steadfast and Loyal,Is there anything this country needs more than a straight-talking courageous patriot as president?
Maybe in 2016.
But Zilla at the facebook community ANTI-C.R.A.P.T.A.S.T.I.C., like so many Americans, myself included, would like to such a day arrive much sooner.
I truly wish this man would run for President in 2012. I would crawl on my hands and knees over broken glass if it meant I could see him debate Zero JUST ONCE!
That would be a debate to see!
But Obama, the great orator (we don't hear that claim much anymore, do we?), would never--never ever--permit himself to stand opposite Allen West in a real debate. The outcome would be all too predictable.
