Allen West: This Nation Was Founded on the Idea of Individual Sovereignty

By Gary P Jackson

Allen West talked with Neil Cavuto yesterday. His Fourth of July message is about how Big Government is destroying every American’s personal Liberty and Freedom. As West rightly points out, under the American Constitution, the individual is sovereign. We get our rights from God, not government. The Constitution is there to RESTAIN government, and insure it never infringes on the rights of the sovereign.

I talked at length about the sovereign on the Fourth, as well.

  1. I watched the interview and was pleased with what West said. He’s such an inspiration and as I listened and watched, I kept thinking, “Man, I wish he were running for President!!!” What a joy it would be to be casting my vote for him!

      Indeed. West is the real deal. Sarah Palin has suggested Romney choose him as his VP. Hard to argue with that!

      • GOP Convention Aug

        With Romney as VP right? Well, what we do know is that if Romney gets nominated the elites want him and if he doesn’t it was given to Obama~ If it were We The People choosing it would be easy to pick the right ones which is neither of these in this paragraph~

        I hate to break it to you, but Romney IS the Republican nominee, and it was voters who made him the nominee. He won nearly 3 times the delegates as anyone else. Not that he’s so great, it’s just everyone else sucked so bad. It is what it is.

        We gotta beat Obama, THEN we can worry about everything else.

  2. Makes me mad that someone like West is going to be passed over for someone like Rob Portman.

    • Gary P Jackson

      Portman would be a disaster. Like Mitch “Truce” Daniels, he was part of the Bush team that screwed the money end of things up. Hang back I’ll have the best option for America in the AM.

  3. Allen West is Awesome!

    HA! I was just kiddin I already have moved passed it~ However, on a serious note, just like Allen West’s mentality implies, ” you have to stand for something or you will fall for anything” and it is the want for ” true change” that makes me not “settle for less”~ I mean this is what we have now, a politcal group that inspires people to settle for less~ Wrapped up in popular opinion ” settle for less” is what people have been doing and look what it gets~ So I think changing the mentality from “going along to get along” to “going against the grain to gain” can start NOW, because it is the desire to be more not less that inspires capitolism~ And GP thanks for your honesty I wouldn’t “settle for less”~
