Sarah Palin endorses Allen West

Yesterday in a new Facebook note, Sarah Palin threw her support behind three veteran candidates running for US House seats, Major Vaughn Ward, Captain Adam Kinzinger and Lieutenant Colonel Allen West. As many of you know, Lieutenant Colonel Allen West is the black conservative whose famous speech set YouTube ablaze.

Here is Palin’s endorsement for West: 
[...] The third veteran is Lieutenant Colonel Allen West, a decorated war hero who’s served with distinction in combat zones in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many of you may have heard of Allen from a speech he gave last year that became a viral video on YouTube with over 2 million viewers. Allen’s personal story is a testament to the commonsense conservative belief that our nation’s greatness is rooted in freedom, because with freedom comes equal opportunity, and that, coupled with hard work, leads to success. Allen is a small government fiscal conservative running against a leftwing ideologue who’s marched to the beat of Nancy Pelosi on every issue from cap-and-tax to the stimulus, TARP, and, of course, Obamacare. It’s time to send Allen to Washington in his place. Please visit Allen’s website here to donate to his campaign, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter. [...] 
There are quite a few black conservatives running in 2010. Many of them would make excellent Reps. I have covered a few here at this blog (Michael Williams and Les Phillips).  I hope to have a full list of all the black conservatives running in 2010 shortly.

I loved Allen West's speech. I watched it and the whole time I'm saying, "Yes, yes, that's it." I was so glad to hear somebody who actually gets it. He is exactly the kind of person we need in office. Somebody who does the oh so unfashionable thing of applying logic and reason to the problems.

I applaud his military service and his background. Now the question I ask is "Can you withstand the swamp of D.C. and the siren song of power? Or a lifelong pension and health benefits, courtesy of the taxpayer.

Wait. I didn't think there was such a thing as a "black conservative." Have I been misled by the so-called "mainstream" media?

What I like about West is he doesn't look like he will put up with much nonsense. So many of these characters get sucked into that wrong headed Washington thinking.

Oops bad link.

That is the big question to ask. What I have seen from West is an honest love of country, the kind that comes from service. I think he will be able to pull through.

The media would never misinform you! I am actually a white guy with curly hair.

Another distinguished candidate is Bill Randall in NC. I have contributed to both Allen West and Bill Randall. Please check out Bill Randall's site at http://www.randallforcongress.com/

I heard him speak at a Wake County Women Republicans' meeting He is FABULOUS!

I like LTC West. He is solid, exceptionally versed on the issues and a real American Hero.
He reminds of the Gipper. I'd vote for him for any office.
Go West Go :-)
