Allen West: Who I am Backing for President


I had to tell one interviewer that I don’t cheerlead any person but rather rally to my country. As well it’s far too early to start fawning over any one person. But what I told most interviewers was that I am not focused on the individual but rather I am looking through a certain prism.

I want find the person who can be seated in a room with very dangerous dictators, despots, autocrats, and theocrats and stare them down. I’m looking for that leader who can sit across from Vladimir Putin and non-verbally send a message. I’m looking for the leader that can send a message of strength, exceptionalism, and resolve without uttering a word — a commanding presence.

Anyone can rehearse a speech, but leadership is far more than giving a prepared speech or a well-crafted stump speech – doggone, that’s the lesson we should have learned from the past six years. The point is that anyone can hire the best advisors on the economy, healthcare oe energy, but only one person wears the title of commander-in-chief. Constitutional Conservatives must raise up a charismatic champion that rallies us to the American flag. We must realize there are two phases to a national level election: image and message. The image phase has to be won or we’ll never be able to get to the message phase.

And when it comes to the message phase, we must have someone willing to deliver one that clearly delineates between the failure of progressive socialism and its collective vision of shared misery by way of the dependency society.

We must make the liberal progressives defend their ideology. We need a leader who goes on the offense — not against another individual but rather against a belief system that is antithetical to this Constitutional Republic and the opportunity society.
