Lt. Col. Allen West – Let Freedom Ring

Good American Post – Staff Reports

Operation “Go West” – the campaign for retired Lieutenant Colonel, Allen West, is where you will find this message, “2010 will present a historic opportunity to reclaim our America. We are at a crossroad where only you can help us become that ‘city on a hill’ that is the American ideal and the American promise.”

We have heard this before – all candidates have such rhetoric.  What makes Allen West so different?

Let’s start with the fact that he can eloquently explain topics that are important and urgent, and appears willing to fight for what is right – not necessarily what is popular.  Interview after interview, West coherently answers questions about our domestic issues and international issues.  He can quickly quote and refer to SunTzu, the Koran and Plato, to name a few historic resources.  He is not afraid to call people out for committing actions that harm our republic and liberty.  His replies to questions are detailed, and researched – making our current politicians look exactly like that – politicians – not representatives of our Republic.   West is a man who has actually studied the problems, and is informed enough to make decisions by taking positive actions to make a difference!  This isn’t just rhetoric, it’s what makes this candidate so different.

He is a man who loves his country and believes that people should be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin (King, 1963).  West says to an audience, “I don’t see myself as African-American, Black-American – I see myself as an American”.  He goes on to say “…I am very proud of the heritage of my parents, I am very proud of the heritage of my people, but if you stick a knife in me, it’s gonna come out red, white and blue…” (see the video here:

He excelled in the military, serving our country for 22 years.  His honors include: a Bronze Star, three Meritorious Service Medals, three Army Commendation Medals (one with Valor), and a Valorous Unit Award.  Badges that he proudly wears include: Army Master parachutist badge, Air Assault badge, Navy/Marine Corps parachutist insignia, Italian parachutist wings, and the German proficiency badge (Bronze award).  Lt. Col. West has put his life on the line for our country and freedoms.  The people that he meets around the country who have a connection to our armed forces, can appreciate a man of West’s caliber and strength.  The freedom and liberties that we are trying to save today should reflect the men and women who have already given their lives for this country, as well as those who are serving in our armed forces now.  We owe it to them to be informed by standing up for liberty.

Lt. Col. West appeals to a large base of voters who love this country for what it stands for and the constitutional principles it was built upon.  West is dedicated to liberty, the constitution, and free markets.  His campaign embraces his love of country, as well as his love of life.  West is an avid distance runner and PADI Master certified SCUBA diver.   He likes riding motorcycles and attending church, all American values and a lifestyle we should admire.

Listening to Lt. Col. West speak and interact with thousands of community members, it’s clear that he is probably one of the most qualified candidates for any office, including President of the United States.  However, upon digging deeper, and going beyond his amazing love for country, community, and prosperity, we have found that, in fact, he is indeed true to his word, with an intriguing background and dedication to freedom.

We could use about 534 more of them in our House of Representatives and Senate.  Please take the time to look at his campaign here:

After meeting at FreedomFest in Las Vegas, The Good American Post will join up with the Liberty Bus in the great state of Colorado.  We are looking for sponsors and venues that are interested in having this great organization share information about their mission – which is parallel to what The Good American Post stands for.

The goal of the Liberty Bus is to enhance the understanding of:

  • WHY government spending must be significantly reduced
  • WHY private enterprise is a more effective alternative for services
  • WHY individual choice, risk and reward are imperative for liberty to survive in America
  • HOW YOU can change the direction away from government dependency and toward liberty

It appears that perhaps, finally, there is some type of efficient mechanism for evaluating the performance of teachers.  Of course there are people against it, but I feel this is a step in the right direction to making sure our students are actually learning and becoming competitive forces in the global economy.

Support voucher programs and school choice!

The free-market at work with our public education system helps parents have a choice where to send their kids.  This program has been proven effective in many areas.  We need more support for these types of voucher programs.  The following is a story that shows (unfortunately) what happens even when programs are a success.  America – it is up to us!!!

Sometimes hard numbers and intuition come together to bring to light absolute truth.  A mutual fund, called the Congressional Effects Fund (CEFFX) shows how great the market can do when Congress is out of session.  By timing the investment in assets in the broad stock market (when Congress in out of session) versus cash equivalents (when Congress is in session), this mutual fund has had stock market returns 60 percent higher than others during the year in general.  Read more HERE.
