Palm Beach County, FL – Today Congressman Allen West released the following statement in response to President Obama’s visit to South Florida:
”Four years ago our President’s campaign of hope and change inspired and united millions Americans. Listening to President Obama’s speech at Florida Atlantic University today, it is clear that ‘hope and change’ has been replaced with ‘divide and rule’. President Obama’s only hope for re-election seems to be that Americans will overlook his failed economic policies if he can successfully divide people along the lines of income and wealth.
But the unfortunate reality is, even if the electoral fortunes of President Obama and Democrat congressional candidates improve by demonizing people and turning the American people against each other, cynical and divisive political strategy does nothing to create jobs for the 14 million unemployed Americans, it does nothing to alleviate soaring gas prices that pinch family budgets and prevent small businesses from hiring, and it does nothing to increase opportunity for all Americans, regardless of skin color, gender, age or income. I will continue to present a different vision for America.
I believe the greatness of America lies in the goodness of Americans and their individual pursuit of their hopes and dreams. History has shown that economic freedom improves the condition of all. Economic dependency only ensures mediocrity and suffering for all. The best way we can create a bright future for all Americans is to get Washington politicians out of the way and out of the pockets of hardworking taxpayers, get our debt under control to provide long-term economic certainty, and ensure we enact energy and national security policies that allow Americans to work, invest, innovate and prosper.”

Statism, American liberalism, communism, socialism, fascism, or any other authoritarian ism you can think of, is not popular on its face, so it must force its way into our lives, even using deception to make the people desire it. Crisis fuels the desire by the people for the government to “gain control” of everything. But in order for the ruling elite to be able to ride in on their prized stallion to save the day, their must be division, so that the liberal statist can claim they are hear to resolve that division. . .
But what if the division is not severe enough for the statists to use it? What if, as individuals who are personally responsible and self-reliant, we are doing just fine without the intrusion of government in our lives?
Liberals need division, so if division is not present, they must create it.
The Democrat Party is getting all riled up over things that is happening in our country or in our culture or in our media, and if they can claim it is division and they can unify us, they do. The problem is, they’re lying. They’re making it up. There’s a political agenda here. And the outrage that is causing such division is not as widespread as they are telling you.
The liberal left has been attempting to create the illusion that there is great division in this country by using the Trayvon Martin case as that spring board. They need to create a false reality, because the real world is not divided enough. The country is not as agitated as the left is, but it never is, and that just will not do. They have to find a way to succeed in upsetting people, and then project the blame onto their opposition. They kick the lies into high gear, the deception is about to reach a crescendo, and our primary job as informed voters is to see right through it, press forward, and just don’t believe them.
Every opportunity the left gets they will attempt to create division, in the hopes of gaining the votes of the angry sympathizers of the supposed victims, while also getting rid of one of their enemies, or getting rid of opposition to an issue or piece of legislation they are pushing.
Never mind that such trickery is cheating. That is why nobody believes it. Nobody assumes that an ideology would stoop so low to create division for the sole purpose of political advancement, even if it means destroying lives. The liberal left has no moral fiber or moral core. They don’t care about you, or the country. They’re not interested in what is good for this nation. It doesn’t matter. It’s beneath them. They only desire power and control, and along the way they have become arrogant, conceited, vicious, and out of control. They are liars and manipulators.
