I guess the Establishment just couldn’t stand someone with passion and convictions. But what does our party need right now? Do we need another Laodicean? With as many and as deep problems as we have, do we want our leaders to be milquetoast? In case you need reminding, our nation is in crisis.

Our president right now is violating the First Amendment rights of the largest religious denomination in the country and in the world: someone needs to stand up.

The Democrats in the Senate have not passed a budget in over 1,000 days: someone needs to stand up.

The federal government is spending 10 billion dollars per day: someone needs to stand up.

Taxpayers give millions of dollars every year to Planned Parenthood, our nation’s largest abortion provider: someone must stand up.

Lieutenant Colonel West is a hero to millions of Tea Partiers across the country. He has already raised millions of dollars for his re-election campaign, getting donations from people outside his district and even outside of Florida, who just want to have him in office, even though he won’t be representing them. That says a lot about what kind of an error the party is making right now.

The Tea Party began precisely because of the failures of GOP leadership—it’s no surprise that they are fighting back against its more conservative members. America didn’t reach crisis overnight—it is the result of a long series of defeats going back decades. And everyone who allowed our country to fall into such a state is complicit, is guilty.

Now, more than ever, we need leaders like Allen West. The fact that party elites could so callously allow one of our finest Representatives to be put in such a situation is an indictment of them. This is nothing less than a betrayal.

Go to to make your voice heard in favor of an American hero.
