Allen West - #4262 - VIDEO: West's Powerful Gun Right's Speech: 'An Armed Man is a Citizen. A Disarmed Man is a Subject' - The Blaze (6,407 views) (2) VIDEO: Allen West Ad: Hey, Guess Where I was While My Opponent Was Drunk and Disorderly - Hot Air


Allen West's Powerful Gun Right's Speech: 'An Armed Man is a citizen. A Disarmed Man is a Subject' - The Blaze - On Friday night, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) spoke at the Palm Beach County Friends of the NRA annual banquet, where he delivered a historical review of the Second Amendment. Invoking the words of the Founding Fathers, West warned the audience of the dangers of a federal government that would ignore the words of the U.S. Constitution. At the beginning of his speech, he read aloud the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to mass applause: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Then, West went on to share some quotes from the Founding Fathers, reaffirming the right of Americans to bear arms. Among the quotes was one from President James Madison who once wrote, ”The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed, which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” West praised the U.S. and said that the people must ensure that an excellent future be passed on to future generations. He also showered accolades upon the Founding Fathers for their courage and resolve in crafting the nation’s inception. “An armed man is a citizen. A disarmed man is a subject,” West closed, reaffirming his belief in the importance of the Second Amendment. “We gather here tonight to separate that which makes America exceptional and unique.”


Allen West Ad: Hey, Guess Where I was While My Opponent Was Drunk and Disorderly - Hot Air - Col. Allen West leads Democrat Patrick Murphy by 11 points in the latest polling on Florida’s 18th Congressional District, 52-41. The poll was commissioned by West, and shows progress over a Murphy-commissioned poll from August, which showed the race statistically tied. The poll has a 4.9 percent margin of error. West is also leading his opponent in ad buys, tripling Murphy’s allotment, according to the Roll Call: A Democratic source familiar with the buys in the district said West’s campaign was up with 1,400 gross rating points of television from Sept. 25 through Oct. 1 and was booked for 1,600 points from Oct. 2-8. Murphy’s campaign, a pro-Democratic super PAC and a pro-Allen West super PAC are all also on air right now, but with less of a presence. Murphy’s campaign had, according to the Democratic source, 450 points of TV through Oct. 1 and 500 points Oct. 2-8. This is what some of that ad time will look like. Allen released a 30-second ad today hitting Murphy for a 2003 arrest after a night drinking in a South Beach bar, during which he had an altercation with a police officer. The ad uses military-style graphics, a “24″ feel, and the help of Murphy’s mugshot to answer the question: Where was Col. Allen West the night Murphy was arrested. The tagline: “Two men, a country in crisis, you decide.”  Allen West campaign web site.........
