Allen West has become a household name all around America. He is not afraid to speak up for freedom and criticize wasteful, counter-productive government programs.
West, a black republican, regularly appears on Fox News and is releasing his new book in April 2014. His website attracted more than 1 million people last month and over 600,000 people have “liked” him on Facebook since he has become a private citizen.
It is clear that America loves Allen West.
Luckily for West’s fans, it is likely that he is considering a political comeback as he continues to aggressively stand up for Republican principles.
West lost to Democrat Patrick Murphy in 2012, after the most expensive US House race in history. West hasn’t given up hope for a political position, however. West said that he would likely run for the US Senate if Marco Rubio (R-FL) runs for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.
Another telling sign: West continues to back his Republican allies who hold political positions. In early November, he emailed his supporters, “It’s starting to feel a lot like election season. We’re officially within one year of the 2014 midterm elections, but the way the Left has launched a war against conservatives, you’d think the elections were being held tomorrow!”
West’s new book, “The Guardian Republic: An American Ronin’s Journey to Faith, Family and Freedom” is a look inside his personal life. West said, “In ‘Guardian of the Republic,’ I share my experiences as the father of two daughters, a soldier leading men into battle, and a member of Congress during one of the most politically polarized eras in American history. I hope that readers can learn from my successes and failures, and more importantly, that the next generation of conservative leaders is inspired by my story.”
West lives in Palm Beach Gardens. He said the country currently needs “a principled, informed conservative who understands where we came from, who can trace the philosophical roots of our faith and freedom, and who has a plan to get America back on track.”
