I have listened to Allen West on numerous occasions and he never fails to bring tears to my eyes. His manner of speech instills confidence in those he speaks to. He is a true patriot and a great fiscal conservative. There is a totally different feeling with this man as opposed to his rival..Mr. Barry Sotoero. As for his being a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, I have zero problem with that. Much better than being an admitted member of the Progressive Socialist Caucus.
