Last night, my new Congressman-elect (I love typing that!) Allen West gave a moving speech to the West Palm Beach Republican Club, in which he honored veterans, upheld American Exceptionalism and vowed to stand firm for the US Constitution once sworn into office in Washington D.C.
I’d had the good fortune of unexpectedly bumping into Allen as he strode through the parking lot toward the entrance of the Bear Lakes Country Club, when I had to return to my car to retrieve my Flip-corder. He thanked me sincerely for working so hard on his campaign as I gave him a hug and my congratulations (something I’d been unable to do at his victory party, due to the size of the crowd). Truly, this is a man of honor and integrity.
It’s hard to describe just how thrilled South Florida is to have this decorated war hero and and patriot representing us, but you’ll get an idea of the scope our our genuine love and affection for Lt. Col. Allen West in the two videos below.
God bless Allen West as he begins a new phase of service to his country. And God bless all of our US Veterans!
