It really is about time, and, of course, he does a fabulous job. Allen West is an extraordinary asset to the the Republican party and certainly this nation. It’s important the GOP machine put aside the fear they still seem to have about “Tea Party.” The reality is, this revolution has already happened and the only hope for the GOP to survive is adapt and accept the fact that there are now and will be citizens daring to break into what they thought was their private club.

In this week’s address, Congressman Allen West, a Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel, discusses the deadline for the sequester, and the White House’s devastating inaction on what was originally their idea.

The recent vicious attacks on embassies in the Middle East underscore the need to preserve our military strength. The president and Senate Democrats must put aside partisan politics to work with us to preserve our military and replace the sequester.
