Allen West: The Dangers of a Woke U.S. Military

The motto of the U.S. Army is “This We’ll Defend.” In the modern Armed Services of the U.S. military, we all take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. That is what separates our military from all others in the world–the oath that we take. And truthfully, for us as veterans, that oath should never cease.

Allen West: The Republican Party Needs Leadership And a Clear Agenda

The Republican party is not rallying Americans around a clear message in the run up to the midterms. You cannot just sit back and say, “vote against the other guys, they suck.” We all know that the progressive socialist Marxist left (aka the Democrat party) sucks--that is a blinding flash of the obvious. But people want to vote for something, not just against.
