Yes, Constitutional Conservatives Need to Change Into War Paint.

Via Don

It has been steadily dawning on me this past weekend just how severe is the state of our disunion. Much of it precipitated by the battles of the valiant Allen West in his District 18 race in Florida. Western Journalism's account of the day's activities yesterday is mind blowing.  It is a microcosm of what we are facing as constitutional conservatives in this country and the forces that arrayed against us.   (Be sure to skip to the “How bad is it?” section below if you want to cut to the chase.

In Allen West, you have a true conservative who not only is knowledgeable and articulate on the issues, but who takes away the standard excuses many on "our side" have as to why we don't win. You wanted Rubio for VP (despite the fact he is constitutionally ineligible)? Allen is bad ass, dark skinned brother who grew up deep in the south where (supposedly) racism is on a daily rampage. He doesn't have the lack the articulate "coolness" or maturity decried as missing from Angle and O'Donnell. And, he even voted for the budget ceiling debacle and NDAA proving he isn't a "purist" to the Libertarian-hating elements of the Elephant party.

The Grand Old Plantation

So surely this rising star would be embraced as a Reagan figure by the establishment and TEA forces alike, right?  Yeah - JUST like Reagan, the GOP Establishment tried to undercut and weaken him at ever juncture. In fact the Rubio/Jeb Bush GOP influences in Florida redistricted him in such a way that he would have to battle severely just to stay in office. So much for that "Republicans were the original party of the black man" crap we tried to delude ourselves with. Yes, I'm saying it. The Republican Establishment INTENTIONALLY tried to subvert Allen West because of his race. And his conservatism.  He is a danger to them because he is principled.  And black.  And they know he has the ear of the TEA party.  It took them 10 years to put the Reagan renegades back on the party plantation.  Just look how they treated Gingrich who actually INCREASED the Republican and conservative identity from the Gipper’s and sabotaged a coup_d'état so that they could start enslaving our children to ever increasing debt again. 


  1. Yep, he was screwed by the rinos during redistricting. I posted about that somewhere but I don't remember where.
    It really is the party of tyrant Lincoln.

    1. There's a good chance he won anyway. As I remember, he was up 2,000 and then they decided to "recount" and he ended up 2,500 in the hole. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. 100%.

  2. I've been accused of nitpicking one issue of wrongdoing by bloggers and politicians alike. I've been accused of concentrating on one lapse of good judgement by these folks amongst ALL the alleged good they do and/or promote. So here I go again....I'm going to attack West' judgement and his soul....

    Allen West sold his soul and the impending destruction of the United States Constitution with his vote, in allegience to soetoro-obama and the vaginal John Boehner, for the National Defense Authorization Act - 2012, and that Act allowing the arrest, incarceration and/or murder of American citizens without the benefit of trial.

    West is perhaps a "conservative" in the 21st Century definition. But as a former USA commissioned officer West, in my mind is no less a traitor to the oath he swore to defend the US Constitution against "all enemies foreign and domestic".

    At what point in time do folks who consider themselves patriots, start holding traitors to the constitution accountable ? How many times does it take for the Wests, McCains, the Lyndsey Grahams, to crap on their oath to the Constitution before "patriots" declare them enemies of Freedom and Liberty ?

    Good riddance Allen West.
