Col. West - The Best Voice on Wisconsin

I just got back from Mass and found an e-mail responding to my morning';s musings. This one agreed with my piece.

Chicago lawyer Dan Kelley paralleled the events in Madison with the Spanish Civil War. That is dead-on accurate. The backers of the teachers and the other State employees are testing the waters in the manner that the Soviets used strife in 1930's Spain to build a secular society based on redistribution of wealth. The reaction was a fascist dictatorship and a confused muddle of morality on a global scale.

A real American Col. West* is man who said that he would walk through hell with a gasoline can for the people under his command was recently elected to Congress. The Congressional Black Caucus greeted this black American Patriot with all of the love a Gangster Disciple displays to a Vice Lord.

The GOP is waiting and watching, as I mentioned in my morning's musing, and the Tassled Loafer crowd that keeps me voting Democrat here in Chicago, has yet to give Governor Walker any support.

Here is a piece that was e-mailed to me by a pal - Democrat BTW -from New Hampshire.

From Weasel Zippers ( love the name).com:

Allen West on Wisconsin Protests: “We’re Witnessing the Abject Hostility of a Unionized Entitlement Class Lauded by the Liberal Left Including Obama”

“Over this past week I have watched and listened to members of the House of Representatives from across the aisle.

“I am appalled at their ignorance, belligerence, and dishonest rhetoric filled with empty emotional platitudes. Have they no shame in realizing that their inept, incompetent failures are the reason why we are debating this continuing resolution. They failed to pass a budget during the 111th Congress.

“Have they no honor in realizing that their fiscal irresponsibility over the past four years has resulted in our standing on the precipice of a fiscal canyon from which we may not recover.

Also troubling are the events in the state of Wisconsin which mirror those that happened in Greece several months ago. We are witnessing the abject hostility of a unionized entitlement class that is being lauded by the liberal left, seemingly to include our President.

“It is such a critical time for our Republic, yet there seems no visionary leadership — it is as if America stopped producing adults. I have never seen a greater assembly of petulance and sophomoric behavior as what I have witnessed this week on the floor of the House of Representatives.

“To those across the aisle, please explain to the American people how your economic policies have created a better environment for long-term sustainable growth.

“This debate is about jobs and the economy.

“It begins with remedying the spending problem on Capitol Hill. It includes tackling the burdensome taxation and regulation policies strangling our country. It is the understanding that Keynesian tax and spend policies did not grow America’s economy, but the indomitable, entrepreneurial spirit of the American people.

“Government sets the conditions for job and economic growth, it does not create jobs.

“I am pleased that we are having open debate in the peoples’ house. However, there is clearly something lacking in this discourse — the recognition of the failure of the bureaucratic nanny-state liberal policies.
(emphasis my own)
“Rest assured that I will do everything in my ability to stand firm and lead on the principles that make America exceptional.” Newsmax

Rookie U.S. Rep. Allen West delivered a stinging indictment of his colleagues in a letter to constituents in which he rails about House members’ “ignorance, belligerence, and dishonest rhetoric.” Without naming names, but clearly implying that he was including President Barack Obama, the Florida Republican also decried Washington’s interference with Wisconsin’s budget turmoil. The text of the letter to residents of Florida's 22nd District:
