Lt. Col. (RET) Allen West poses with my brother Ralph after an event in Deerfield Beach, Florida in August, 2009.
Spent a good portion of yesterday and today rallying with other like-minded patriots in Boca Raton, at the corner of Glades and St. Andrews, by the Town Center Mall. It’s always comforting, reassuring and uplifting to spend time among grassroots Americans who love their God, country and constitution, even more so now that we’re less than 48 hours away from the most consequential midterm elections in modern history.
We got many approving honks and thumbs-up from passing cars, though we were also subjected to the occasional angry liberal flipping the bird and shouting obscenities and epithets, not just at us, but — quite shamefully — a true American war hero. Voting for Lt. Col. Allen West was a great honor for me; I’ve met him on many occasions and have nothing but respect and admiration for his character, his distinguished Army career and his many accomplishments.
That know-nothing Obama zombies of all ages would spew such drive-by venom and vitriol toward West is hardly surprising, though no less outrageous. After all, his incumbent Democrat opponent Ron Klein has based his entire re-election bid on mudslinging and character assassination. As previously noted, when you have a 98% pro-Obama/Pelosi voting record, the last thing you want to do is run on your record of support for odious and unpopular legislation like Obamacare, Cap and Trade and stimulus.
Readers of my blog may be surprised to know I am also a “fu^%$ing redneck”. Well at least that’s what some guy who looked to be around my age yelled out to me from his Range Rover as he sped by. I’ll take it as a compliment — the redneck part, anyway. After all, if loving my freedom, country, national security and creator make me a redneck, I am guilty as charged.
Here’s the first video from yesterday’s gathering; I will upload the second one soon.
Go West, Rubio, Bondi, Scott/Carroll, Putnam and all great Florida conservative Republican candidates!
Update: Here’s a video from Sunday’s rally. Not sure why I am swaying from side to side during my interview, but it’s probably because the wooden sign I am holding was very heavy!
