The first point: I am against ALL SuperPacs because their intent is to mislead at times and go nearly to the precipice of slandering a candidate so voters can be bent to their persuasion. The candidates themselves cannot control what the SuperPac does “in their behalf”.
BUT it is a sad state of affairs, when groups and individuals can put together a SuperPac with the intent to SHUT UP a person’s voice in American politics.
That is exactly what is happening to Rep. Allen West.
Rep. Allen West is a Conservative that Says What He Means……and Means what he Says.
That is WHY the Communists/Progressives/Democratic Socialists within our Congress and other Leftist Groups want to silence his voice about America’s Liberties and the Freedom to CHOOSE.
Why I continue my steadfast and loyal stand with Congressman Allen West – My brand of Conservatism

I have never blogged a day in my life. I have written many comments on Facebook, Twitter, Google and many other social networks. I have never felt like I could truly articulate anything that I had to say and make it something worth reading. Bear with me friends, this is a new road for me to travel down and I speak and feel with high emotion about very few things. They are, God, Family, Country, Our Military and Congressman Allen West of Florida’s Congressional District 22.
I found a voice one day inside myself not wanting to be silent anymore. I had approximately 49 Facebook friends and a desire to learn more. You see, after listening to Glenn Beck say it so many times “Do the research” and Sarah Palin standing up for us little folks I realized I have this voice, this passion, this desire to want to do more for my family, my country, my fellow American’s. But how? I was so afraid to accept friendship requests or branch out and try anything new but I had to start somewhere. I would post an occasional news article and then sit and wait for someone to get upset about what I posted. I sometimes went as far as to immediately delete the post out of worry.
Then I met a wonderful friend by the name of Mark Bonner on Facebook. Mark’s love for this country, his passion, desires and messages are crystal clear to all who know him. I began to feed off of everything he did. The style, the presentations, the class act that he personifies in everything he does. I was hooked, I wanted to be just like him. I wanted to know all of his friends and to be friends with them. Mark’s following of grassroots, God fearing patriots lead me to some of the most incredible friendships a girl could ever ask for. Mark and I have a mutual friend John Swetland, that ignited us daily to get our friends motivated by passing along fantastic articles and information on a little known (then) potential congressional candidate out of Florida, Congressman Allen B. West, retired US Army LTC. Then came the video that would rock my little conservative heart to the core.

It is 5 minutes and 59 seconds worth of truths.
Please understand, I never wanted to engage in political discussions with anyone. I didn’t feel strong enough to say the things I wanted to say. So little by little I would get more information on Allen West and between Mark Bonner, John Swetland and a few other Facebook friends we started to put his message out on the world wide web. People were astounded, amazed, proud, thankful and most of all they were willing to take the extra step and share with their friends.
This is how a (Ret) (LTC) can get elected to US Congress. Social Networking, solid grassroots patriots willing to take a step forward, stand up, share the message. You don’t need to cower because of friends you may offend, or you may not want to have “that political discussion” with. You, as an American, must be true to you. What matters to you? How much does it really mean? Will you stand down and only share and promote certain things to certain people? Will you shout it from the highest mountain top that you mean what you say and it’s okay to lose a few friends in the process because you gained respect from the ones that agreed.
I have a desire to get up every day because of my 21 and 6 year old sons. I can maintain my daily life, no matter what road I am going down because of my Lord and Savior. I don’t live in a nice house or a good neighborhood. I don’t have a two family income, health insurance or all the things that most of you have as a reason to fight for the “right” side. I should be fighting the fight for the other side. I choose not too because I know the difference in right and wrong. Rep Allen West states clearly “promote the general welfare, not provide welfare.”
I have finally found my drive, you know, the one that gets your motor running. The motivation that helps take the car out of neutral. Congressman Allen West, Florida CD22. My days are spent spreading his brand of conservatism, his schedules, his messages to those American Patriots who desire to want this great nation back to it’s original foundations. Congressman Allen West personifies true grassroots Statesmanship.
Thank you for taking the time to read my very first blurb/blog. I hope and pray that you will “do the research” find your voices, get to the root of what gets your car into “drive” and make things happen across this nation. I believe we all have it inside of us, we just have to start the engine.

NOW the GEORGE SOROS backed Super Pac will try to make Allen West SHUT UP.
From The Blaze:
SOROS-BACKED SUPER PAC PLANS TO TAKE OUT REP. WEST
By Becket Adams
July 11, 2012
“Dump West,” the new George Soros-backed Super PAC charged with the task of taking out Rep. Allen West (R-FL), will file with the FEC as early as next week, according to documents obtained by the Shark Tank.
And judging by some of the names involved in the project, it looks like the group desperately wants to see the retired Lieutenant Colonel voted out of office.
“Top national Democratic operative Charles Halloran has been retained … to target Congressman Allen West for defeat this November,” the Tank’s Javier Manjarres reports.
“Halloran is a former aide to President Bill Clinton and is one of the most respected voter targeting/turn out experts in the Democratic Party,” he adds.
Other top-tier names involved in the “Dump West” project include Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (who tasked former Congressman Larry Smith, now a lobbyist, with stocking the group’s war chest) and, of course, billionaire philanthropist George Soros.
“[L]eft wing billionaire George Soros is among those who committed to a $5 million war chest to defeat West,” Manjarres adds.
Then there’s this:
Halloran has brought in “American Directions” to manage the Super-PAC’s effort for internet based, low-dollar fundraising, polling and voter contact. “American Directions” is among the heavy weight firms in Washington DC …
And last but not least:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is fully on-board in the efforts to raise money for the “Dump West” effort. West’s Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy has raised a sizeable war chest and those donors who has given him the maximum are viewed as potential donors to the “Dump West” effort.
What we’re trying to say is that they really, really, really want Rep. West out.
“It’s not surprising that the hard Left is seeking to beat West” Florida Tea Party leader Eric Von Tausch told the Tank. “West’s a conservative hero.”
Here is the memo obtained by the Shark Tank:
