I am shocked that the GOP has not gotten behind Lt. Colonel Allen West. I ask my readers to support this great American. He gets it. He knows what is happening and what needs to be done. It's not enough to chat amongst ourselves. We must elect officials who see the serious damage being done to the basic foundation of this great nation. We need leadership that understands America, respects the Constitution, believes in small government, and has the testicular fortitude to combat Islamic supremacism and the stealth jihad. We can affect change with the right leadership.
Contact Michael Steele. Ask why he has not committed the GOP in support of West. Steele promised a return to the great Republican roots - Allen West embodies that - but Steele is delivering more of the same weak, mushy, Democrat-like leadership. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. The tea parties are an indication of what we are about and what we the people demand of our party and our elected officials. Contact GOP officials.

Join me in New York in supporting Allen West.
WAR HERO RETURNS TO NYC FOR VICTORY IN FLA.
"LTC West is a beacon of hope for each and every American, in what we are all capable of becoming….If there is a hero walking the planet today, it is Allen West." From Dr. Richard Berry's book, "A Missing Link in Leadership" on the trial of LTC West
“Get to know him. Campaign for him. This is the leadership America is dying for.” Blogger Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs
"I sacrificed my career for my soldiers and that's the bottom line" LTC Allen West
One of his soldiers, Michael Montas said: “I served under you in Iraq at the al-Taji airbase… You made a statement during your trials when asked if you would do it again, to which you said “If it’s about the lives of my men and their safety, I’d go through hell with a gasoline can.” Well sir if you would have to go through hell with a gas can I would drive for you.”
LTC West delivered the keynote address at the 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial Dinner sponsored by the Queens Village Republican Club. The guests left the event having met a true statesman, not a politician in LTC West, a decorated military hero in Iraq and Afghanistan, who received a Bronze Star, three Meritorious Service Medals, and three Army Commendation Medals, one for Valor. West ran for Congress in 2008 in Florida CD-22 losing by a mere 5 points and is poised to win in 2010. Hudson Institute President Dr. Herb London and billionaire supermarket mogul John A. Catsimatidis attended the dinner and were likewise impressed and decided to host a fundraiser for West at the London residence in Manhattan on June 9. Additionally, Queens Village Republicans and other guests seized the window of opportunity to meet and mingle again with this true American hero and planned events for June 7 and 8.
The Go West Blog is the given name of the group of loyal New York supporters of LTC West who feel he represents the new nationwide voice of the GOP, even though he is running for a Congressional seat in South Florida. He is coming to New York to liven up local campaigns as well and bring the new energy of an insurgent GOP to the races of local Republican candidates in Queens. The excitement is building as the Go West Blog team is proud to announce the following three big fundraising events in New York City for LTC West:
