There is a reason why liberals should never be in charge of law enforcement – Tea Party Nation

There is a reason why liberals should never be in charge of law enforcement – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Liberal Democrats should be neither seen nor heard.  Nor should they be in a place of power or responsibility.

 This is especially true of the criminal justice system.

 Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, a liberal and living proof of life after brain death, called for, wait for it. You guessed it.  He wants Officer Darren Wilson prosecuted.  Let’s ignore the facts and play to the crowd.

 He wants a “vigorous prosecution.”

 From the Daily Caller:

 A vigorous prosecution must now be pursued,” Nixon said in a five minute video address posted to his website Tuesday.

“The democratically elected St. Louis county prosecutor and the attorney general of the United States each have a job to do,” said Nixon, a Democrat.

“Their obligation to achieve justice in the shooting death of Michael Brown must be carried out thoroughly, promptly, and correctly,” said Nixon of investigators.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder plans to visit Ferguson on Wednesday to meet with federal law enforcement officials and community leaders. Forty FBI investigators traveled to Ferguson over the weekend to interview witnesses.

Nixon has not directly justified his call for a strong prosecution. He has not indicated that he has any information on the shooting that has not been made public.

Wilson, a six-year police veteran with a clean disciplinary record, has not even been arrested or charged with a crime. A grand jury is set to convene on Wednesday to determine if he will be charged.

Wilson, who is on paid leave during the investigation, has reportedly claimed that he shot Brown after the man hit him in the face and struggled to gain control of his service weapon.

 Someone should tell this raging moron Nixon that the American criminal justice system does not prosecute people for the hell of it or to make political points. 

 I spent ten years of my career as a prosecuting attorney and I can call you, prosecutions are supposed to be based on evidence.

 The evidence in this case is clear and convincing.  Michael Brown was a little wannabe gang banger who robbed a store minutes before he was killed.  He hit the officer, went for his gun, ran, then turned and charged the officer.

 The officer has injuries consistent with his story, including a fracture to his eye socket.  Brown’s injuries are consistent with Officer Wilson’s statement.  Witnesses back Officer Wilson’s statement. 

 According to reports, Wilson has fled the state of Missouri in fear of his life.  He should be when idiots like Missouri Governor Jay Nixon are fueling the fire.

 Officer Wilson deserves a medal for what he did. Jay Nixon deserves a jail cell.

Romney and Ryan 2012 – Tea Party Nation

 

Romney and Ryan 2012 – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Rivoli Revue

The Tea Party Express VIII – Winning For America Tour just finished it’s sixth day.  It has been a great start to the tour having held several rallies in Florida, Georgia and covering the state of North Carolina.  The number of first time attendees at a Tea Party rally were surprising.   When talking to folks we were told they are coming out to show support and get informed.  They are trying to find out if the liberal media is lying to them about the demise of the Tea Party.  We assure them that “Yes, the media is lying!  The Tea Party is alive and well.”

Several people mentioned to us that the media seems to be trying to make them believe we have no hope.  Folks, the liberal media is lying.  They are trying to make you feel defeated so you won’t bother going to the polls to vote.  But there is hope and that hope is in Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.  The crowds have been overwhelmingly enthusiastic for Romney and Ryan.  We can win in November if you get out and vote!

Crowds are energized and motivated to take back our White House and end the socialist agenda of Barack Obama.

We received an email from a friend just before starting the tour.  He said “when you hit that stage hold nothing back.  For the sake of my children and yours, hold nothing back.”  We have thought of those words each time we have taken the stage and we have held nothing back.  So for those of you still undecided, here are the facts.  If you are thinking of not voting, then you are surrendering your vote to Obama.  If you are thinking of a write in vote or voting for a third party, then you are voting for Obama.  NEVER has a Presidential candidate won as a write in.  NEVER has a Presidential candidate been elected from a third party.  NEVER.  And it will not happen this election either.  If you went to the polls during the primary and you voted your principles then you did the right thing.  If your candidate didn’t win, then we’re sorry.  In all honesty, ours didn’t win either.  But the primaries are over.  The next President and Vice President of the United States will be elected from one of the two major parties.  That’s the facts.  It will either be Barack Obama and Joe Biden or Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.  Those are your choices.  At this point, you start from square one and you look at your principles and you pick the candidates that stand closest to what your values represent.  And here’s the hard truth – if you think you’re going to skip out on voting, write in a vote, or vote for a third party, then just go ahead and vote for Barack Obama.  Then you can at least take responsibility for the collapse of our economy and the loss of our nation if Obama is reelected.

As we listened tonight at the rally in Wilmington N.C. to the gentlemen who spoke about escaping communism to come to this “great country”, we were reminded of the importance of this election.  Folks, our freedoms here are now at stake.  Make no mistake about it.  If you believe in America and love this land your choice is clear.  Only one choice will keep America’s future bright.   So Ron and I will proudly, and without hesitation march to the polls in November and vote for Freedom and Liberty.  We will vote for Faith and Integrity.  We will vote for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  We will vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

We must stand united to win in November.  Will you stand with us in support of candidates who love America, will not apologize for being exceptional, will support our military and will bring back our economy, bring back jobs, save medicare and repeal Obamacare?  Please join us in voting for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

(As we traveled to join the tour we wrote a new song to show our support.  It’s titled “Romney and Ryan 2012″.  It can be downloaded for FREE at www.Soundclick.com/RivoliRevuefeaturingRonandKayRivoli  Go there, listen to the words, then download it and send it to all your friends, family, email lists and radio stations in your area.  We must stand united to elect Romney and Ryan in November.)

America still a land of free speech

By Charlie Daniels

Because I’m part of the Nashville music community, my mostly conservative views do not make me the anomaly or oddity I would be in the more urbane entertainment capitals. As many of my compatriots expound the value system of God, family, country and work just as I do, and as I tend to spend my off time among a mostly blue-collar crowd, I have very few face-to-face confrontations.

Most of my more vocal critics tend to hide behind Twitter avatars and email names, and most of them make ridiculous assumptions, such as if you oppose Obamacare, you want to sit back and watch all the poor people in the nation die, or if you want to see sanity at the border, you hate all Hispanics.

A while back, there was a lady who just couldn’t understand why I don’t think it is my obligation to pay for her contraception, as if it were an American woman’s right to assign her responsibility for getting pregnant to somebody who didn’t even participate. In my book, if you’re going to play, it’s your place to pay, and if she wants to stand at the door of a men’s room at a service station and hand out coins for the boys to use in the condom machines, that’s her business. I’m just not going to give her any quarters.

Sometimes I’ll receive valid, courteous questions about why I feel the way I do about certain issues. I respond in kind, and there is potential for constructive conversation. There are always two sides to every story, and nobody is wrong all the time, with the possible exception of a few people on Capitol Hill.

Of course, I ignore the “I hope you drop dead with an incurable virus” kind of comments because responding only fans the flames, and you may as well try to reason with a cement mixer.

Some people really seem to think they’re insulting me when they call me a redneck, but I don’t think those people even know what an honest-to-goodness redneck is. You see, a redneck is not somebody riding around in a pickup truck shooting at road signs with a handgun and throwing empty beer bottles on the side of the road. Where I come from, a redneck is just a hardworking man who gets up before the sun does and spends the day working outside, getting the back of his neck rosy in the process. I happen to think those folks are the salt of the earth, and I’m honored to be considered one.

I’d say one of the most appalling things about America today is the lack of original and informed opinion, as some of the most vocal of the amateur pundits quote verbatim something they’ve heard or read. When they’re asked to explain, their position fades away into cyberspace, and they’re unable to put up even a cursory defense of something they’ve stated vehemently just a few moments before.

I am not a man of letters and have no claim or ties to academia, no degrees and actually feel extremely blessed to have made it through high school. But my opinions are all my own, based on 75 years of experience and what I call cowboy logic, which is 2 plus 2 is always 4, water never runs uphill, and if there’s smoke, there’s a fire somewhere.

I personally believe that man-made global warming is an international scam; I happen to think the United Nations is an anti-American, corrupt and toothless debating society that has violated its charter and its very name, for that matter; and I’m firmly convinced that the Southeastern Conference is the greatest football organization ever instituted by mankind.

So you probably can see where I have a few detractors.

With all her wrinkles and warts, the United States of America is still the most exciting place in the world. Waking up in a nation where every day a cure for cancer, a workable biofuel or a mind-numbing discovery at the bottom of the sea could be announced is unparalleled. We live in a place where a new technology or computer chip could propel the economy into hyperspace all over again, and that can’t happen just anywhere.

This is a place where diversity makes us colorful but unity makes us strong, and when we reason together, it becomes stronger still.

Let your voice be heard. I know I’m going to.

The Party of Treason at work again – Tea Party Nation

The Party of Treason at work again – Tea Party Nation.

 

Posted by Judson Phillips

 

There is a reason why we call the Democrats the Party of Treason.  Every now and then they even exceed their own low standards.

 

 They have done something now that is outrageous, even by the standards of the Party of Treason. 

 

What are they doing?

 

 They are working to deny military members the right to vote.

 

 From Breitbart.com

 

 On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state’s law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is “arbitrary” with “no discernible rational basis.”

 

Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military are given three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as “arbitrary” and having “no discernible rational basis,” I think it is entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women’s time and their obligations to their sworn duty. 

 

The National Defense Committee reports:

 

[f]or each of the last three years, the Department of Defense’s Federal Voting Assistance Program has reported to the President and the Congress that the number one reason for military voter disenfranchisement is inadequate time to successfully vote. 

 

 The Obama campaign, the Democrats, aided and abetted by their allies in the drive by media, have done everything to attack voter photo ID laws.  They want to make it as easy as possible for fraud.

 

 But we have real Americans who are serving our nation, often in dangerous places and what does the Party of Treason want to do?

 

 The Party of Treason wants to deny them the vote. 

 

 Where do we even start with this outrage?

 

 It is beyond contemptible that the Party of Treason wants to make it more difficult for our military to vote or even deny them the vote.

 

 Of course, the military is not an Obama constituency so all the Party of Treason is interested in is suppressing the vote from that group.

 

 If the drive by media had any credibility they would call the Party of Treason and Obama out on this.

 

 Don’t expect to hear anything about this from the alphabet networks anytime soon.

 

The Year of the Tea Party Senators continues – Tea Party Nation

The Year of the Tea Party Senators continues – Tea Party Nation.

 

Posted by Judson Phillips

 

We have called this year the year of the Tea Party Senator.  As we had conservatives sweep into the House in 2010, Tea Party Senators are set to sweep into the Senate this year and will change things up in Washington

 

 What is happening now?

 

 From the Daily Caller:

 

 Ted Cruz now holds a solid 10-point lead over his opponent Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst heading into Tuesday’s Senate Republican primary.

 

A Public Policy Polling poll released Monday found the former Solicitor General, Cruz, with 52 percent support to Dewhurst’s 42 percent. The numbers show continuing momentum for Cruz, who two weeks ago led by half that margin: 49 percent to 44 percent.

 

Dewhurst will head into Tuesday already disadvantaged, as Cruz leads 55 percent to 40 percent among voters who cast a ballot during the past week in early voting. Unfortunately for him, Cruz also leads 49-44 among voters who plan to vote on Tuesday.

 

Cruz holds a whopping lead among the tea party, which has served as his base for much of the primary. He also leads among younger voters. Dewhurst leads among non-tea partiers and seniors.

 

The poll validates the Cruz campaign’s strategy of pushing for a run-off and winning in a midsummer, low-turn out race, where the candidate with the most enthusiastic supporters would be victorious. Indeed, “very excited” voters support Cruz over Dewhurst 63 percent to 33 percent, a group that composes 50 percent of Republicans, according to the poll.

 

Cruz has a smaller lead among “somewhat excited” voters. Dewhurst leads among the “not that excited” voters, but they compose only 21 percent of likely primary voters polled by PPP. And, as “not that excited” voters already lack enthusiasm, it’s possible they will not turnout to vote in the first place.

 

The race, which has attracted attention from conservatives nationwide, has also turned into something of a proxy way between two of the biggest names in Republican politics. Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Cruz, the poll finds, makes 31 percent of voters more likely to vote for him, while 24 percent are less likely.

 

 The good news is we are sending some good conservatives to Washington.  When Cruz wins the primary tomorrow, he will effectively win the seat as Texas is a deep red state.  In Indiana, Richard Mourdock defeated the crown prince of the RINO’s, Richard Lugar and he does have an opponent in the fall election.  Joe Donnelly, a liberal Indiana Congressman who would have lost his reelection bid for Congress, is fighting for the Senate seat.  Mourdock should take that seat but it will not be as easy as Cruz’s general election battle.  In Nebraska, Deb Fischer is facing retread liberal Bob Kerry.  In Ohio, a great young conservative, Josh Mandel is taking on one of the worst members of the Senate, far left wing nut Sherrod Brown

 

 The Senate is going to be different in January.  Not only will the Republicans take control but this Senate will be a more conservative Senate.

 

 Hopefully a conservative Senate and a conservative House can save us from taxageddon, Obamacare and the damage done by the Party of Treason for the last four years.

 

The Dark Knight Movie Massacre & Why I Carry a Gun Everywhere I Go – Doug Giles – Townhall.com

 

The Dark Knight Movie Massacre & Why I Carry a Gun Everywhere I Go – Doug Giles – Townhall.com.

I would venture to guess that the folks filing in to see the latest Batman installment in Aurora, Colorado last Thursday evening didn’t figure on over 70 of them getting shot before the credits rolled. The last count I received before filing this column was 12 dead and 59 wounded.

As the news starting pouring in about what happened in the theater this week when Satan’s spawn James Holmes donned Kevlar and a small battery of weapons and opened fire on an unsuspecting crowd, I kept thinking, “One fast-thinking and trained person who was armed/licensed with a concealed weapon could have stopped that SOB right in his tracks before the body count skyrocketed.”

Yep, the armed citizen could have either killed him, sent him running for cover, or at least diverted his fire away from the masses and toward their person. Some readers, no doubt, are saying, “Well that would be stupid. What if that citizen got shot trying to protect others?” To that I reply: Well, Dinky, if they would have been shot and killed at least they would have died a hero. Have you ever heard of the term “hero”?

The Aurora Dark Knight Massacre is exactly why I carry at least one gun everywhere I go—because crap always happens when you least expect it. That’s why, as responsible citizens and gun owners, we must always be ready and must always expect it because when it happens, it happens fast; if you’re not ready, you and others are screwed.

For instance, it’s a beautiful and quiet day on Miami Beach this morning. I’m drinking my coffee at an outdoor cafe, minding my own business while I work on this column and on my website. I don’t see any bath salt zombies on the prowl. There are no Trench Coat Mafia wannabes lurking around. There is no real foreseeable reason to carry a weapon. But I am. The reason? Well, I’m not omniscient. I’m just a dumb clunk living in a jacked-up world where med school students go bat crap crazy and shoot up normally peaceful places for inexplicable reasons. Therefore, I’m locked, cocked and ready to rock should some demented dill weed decide to strafe the local patrons sipping a cup of Joe.

For those who say, “Doug’s insane with all this concealed weapons crap. We should leave such affairs to the police,” allow me to point out that the theater was crawling with cops for the Batman opening to control the crowds. By the time the police got to the particular theater, it was all over. Blood was already running down the aisles and the gunman had already left the building. You, my friend, are your first responder … your first line of defense.

Look, stuff happens when and where you don’t think it’ll happen. My recommendation to you, the good citizen, is to get equipped with a gun—a fire-breathing dragon of a weapon. Get proficient with it. Make it like a cell phone: an additional appendage to your body. And then pray that you’ll never have to use it. However, should you be in line at the grocery store, or at Chili’s eating a burger, or at a park playing football with your homies, and some James Holmes wannabe shows up carting an arsenal and quoting Kafka as he shoots kids … you’ll be ready. Simply find cover if you can, draw your weapon, take a fine bead, and double tap the center mass of the murderous jackass. Should he or she have a bulletproof vest on then pull your sight picture up to the perp’s noggin and shoot him or her in the head; it’ll explode like a watermelon. You’ll feel bad for a nanosecond. But then the cops and families will show up and thank you for putting Jack the Ripper down. The end.

 

The Oathkeepers – Tea Party Nation

The Oathkeepers – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

I regard the next four months between now and the election to be the most dangerous that the nation has faced since the months before the outbreak of the Civil War. I am concerned that President Obama, who has already declared “a state of emergency” in a recent Executive Order, will attempt to assert dictatorial powers and require U.S. military and law enforcement authorities to enforce them

You don’t get to be a general by saying no to the Commander-in-Chief. Witness the way “Don’t ask, don’t tell” was thrown under the bus by the most gay-friendly president in history. Then there’s the idiotic push to power naval ships with biofuels. The Fort Hood murders required a lot of officers to ignore the obvious. Et cetera.

My normal response to conspiracy theories is to dismiss them until I can find sufficient cause to give them credence. That said—President Obama is unlike any previous president this nation has ever had.

He is what those of us on the Right call “a red diaper baby,” raised from birth and mentored to embrace communism. Including his mother and grandparents, all of his closest friends and advisors come from the extreme Left.

By word and by action, Obama’s disregard for the Constitution, its separation of powers, and Americans suffering greatly from his policies, suggests that he is not beyond making the greatest grab for power using a bogus “national emergency” or manufactured “crisis” to declare martial law.

He has, moreover, recently issued three Executive Orders that (1) declare that the U.S. is in a state of emergency, (2) empowers the federal government to seize anything and everything it wants to pursue martial law in the event of an attack, foreign or domestic, and (3) to control all the means of communication nationwide..

The biggest question facing Americans is whether the members of our military and our law enforcement authorities would obey him. My bet is that they would not.

Millions of active duty and veterans swear an oath when they embark on active duty. The oath for non-commissioned officers differs slightly in that includes accepting orders from the President and the officers serving over them.

For officers, the oath is “I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

The oath is for life! It does not end when you are discharged from active duty. Law enforcement officers take a comparable oath. As Gen. Douglas McArthur said when he spoke to the corps at West Point, the oath for all who take it is about “duty, honor, country.”

There is an organization called Oath Keepers composed of those who have served or currently serve in our military, in law enforcement, and as fire fighters. Here is their “Declaration of Orders We Will Not Obey.”

1. We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people.

2. We will NOT obey any order to conduct warrantless searches of the American people, their homes, vehicles, papers, or effects—such as warrantless house-to-house searches for weapons or persons.

3. We will NOT obey any order to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to trial by military tribunal.

4. We will NOT obsey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state, or to enter with force into a state, without the express consent and invitation of that state’s legislature and governor.

5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty and declares the national government to be in violation of the compact by which that state entered the Union.

6. We will NOT obey any order to blockage American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.

7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.

8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control” during any emergency, or under any other pretext. We will consider such use of foreign troops against our people to be an invasion and an act of war.

9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies, under any emergency pretext whatever.

10. We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.

Samuel Adams of U.S. Revolutionary fame once said, “If ever the time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”

The oath keepers and other patriots are all that stand between “We the People” and a government verging on evil.

Walkin’ Tall: Walker Inspires An Army – Tea Party Nation

Walkin’ Tall: Walker Inspires An Army – Tea Party Nation.

Lloyd Marcus

A friend informed me that Gov. Scott Walker defeated the recall on the same day President Ronald Reagan passed away, June 5th. She added that Walker reminds her of Reagan.

As Chairman of The Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama, I have visited several cities in Wisconsin. Chatting with patriots across the state, they sang the praises of Gov. Walker’s reforms and his remarkable courage. Despite intense and relentless pressure, Walker stayed true to championing conservative principles.

While we all knew that the democrat’s attack on the Wisconsin governor had national ramifications, the result of Walker’s courage is more powerful than anyone could have imagined. My goodness, this man has inspired a nation. Wow!

Gov. Walker stepped up, drew his sword of honor and defeated the multi-headed dragon of liberalism just when our tea party movement desperately needed a hero. Since the beginning of the democrat’s absurd recall attack on Walker for simply keeping his campaign promises, Walker and his family have endured horrendous persecution and death threats. Even now, after Walker won the recall, the internet is littered with new death threats on Walker’s life. Liberals are tweeting that someone should kill Gov. Walker. Don’t you just love the liberal anti-war, let’s-be-tolerant-of-everything crowd? Disagree with them and they demand that you be silenced, destroyed or killed.

Countless patriots have shared their research which confirms that our government is racing down various wrong roads, all leading to destruction. These patriots feel hopeless, unable to hit the brakes to turn America around. But Scott Walker has shown us that one brave committed man can make a difference.

Democrat mayor of San Jose, CA, Chuck Reed is battling the unions to restore his city to fiscal sanity. Mayor Reed said some city employees are making more money in retirement than they did when they were working. His city’s system is corrupt and insane.

San Diego, CA, mayor Jerry Sanders is fighting to implement reforms which he says will save several billions over the next ten years. On average from 60% to the upper seventies, voters are supporting this new wave of courageous mayors and governors in their quest for fiscal morality and sanity.

Now that Scott Walker has led the way, I predict a tsunami of mayors and governors suddenly finding a backbone to say no to workers receiving immoral unsustainable benefits.

Ann Coulter called Walker’s victory, “The recall heard around the world.” That is pretty powerful – one man!

I do not know about you, but I feel empowered – what I do does matter. Your book matters. Your video matters. Your song matters. Your running for office matters.

Brothers and sisters, imagine the power of an army of Scott Walkers – all fully committed to restoring the God inspired conservative principles which have made us a great and prosperous unique experiment – America. My name is Lloyd Marcus and I am Scott Walker!

Why We Love Ted Nugent and Why The Left Hates Him – Tea Party Nation

Why We Love Ted Nugent and Why The Left Hates Him – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Sherry Phillips

As you are all probably aware, Ted Nugent was being interviewed at the National Rifle Association meeting and said if Obama was re-elected this year, he would either be dead or in jail by this time next year.

“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” Nugent said in the interview. “If you can’t go home and get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don’t even know what you’re made out of.”

 Here’s the video of the interview:

<iframe width=”640″ height=”360″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/QL5zmqbuMxo?feature=player_embedded&#8221; frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen>


I don’t think anyone with a brain cell took what Ted Nugent said as a threat against Obama; however, the left, predictably, went nuts. And because they don’t have anything better to do (like pay their $47 hooker bills), the Secret Service will be interviewing Nugent today.

Brain donor U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz used the old tried and true Democrat tactic of never letting a situation go to waste and solicited donations from supporters using Nugent’s comments. She called them “despicable, deplorable and completely beyond the pale.”

For his part, Nugent said he was looking forward to meeting with the agents.

“We actually have heard from the Secret Service, and they have a duty, and I salute them, I support them,” Nugent told Glenn Beck on his radio show. “I’m looking forward to our meeting tomorrow. I’m sure it’ll be a fine gathering backstage in Oklahoma.”

Nugent has endorsed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul responded in their normal pandering to the left style by saying, “divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.”

Yeah, if Mitt Romney gets in that White House, he’s going to be one tough hombre to deal with. Not.

Why can’t someone like Nugent run for President?

NUGENT: Allen West is a battle-tested patriot with star power – Washington Times

NUGENT: Allen West is a battle-tested patriot with star power – Washington Times.

By Ted Nugent – The Washington Times

When names are kicked around as to who would make a good running mate for former Gov. Mitt Romney, I can think of many great Americans for the job. Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul, John Thune, Paul Ryan, Mike Rogers, Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Darrell Issa, Louie Gomert and others come to mind.

But Sen. Marco Rubio from Florida is justifiably at or near the top of the list. Mr. Rubio would be a wise selection. He’s a conservative who is bright and speaks his mind with a bold conviction that warms the hearts of fellow conservatives drunk on tea. Every so often, someone comes along and inspires us, gives us real hope, tells us the truth and lays out a clear vision for the future.

These patriots are not concerned with the next election, but are concerned with the good of the nation for future generations of Americans. They know the real American dream is about leaving the nation in better shape than it was when they arrived.

These statesmen don’t seek to reshape America into something our Founders never intended, but believe in restoring those unique limited government principles that made America the envy of the world or as Ronald Reagan said, “a shining city on a hill.”

They know the real greatness of America rests with individuals, not power-hungry bureaucrats who seek to control us instead of upholding the U.S. Constitution that liberates us.

I endorse Mr. Romney for president because I believe he is the right man at the right time with the right experience and with the right vision to begin pointing this wonderful experiment in self-government in a renewed, positive direction that rewards the producers instead of punishing them.

Mr. Romney is going to need help, and like the good Mr. Rubio, Rep. Allen West is another conservative shining star from Florida.

While a vice-presidential selection is Mr. Romney’s call, he would be wise to give Mr. West a strong look.

Whether Mr. West wants the job of vice president remains to be seen, but there is no debating that he has the conservative credentials, the vision and the wisdom to be second in command and someday, to be the commander in chief. He’s that great an American.

Mr. West is a bold, unapologetic, intelligent American with a clear vision for the country that is the opposite of the Obama administration’s wrongheaded, European-style vision.

A vice-presidential running mate does not typically make a difference in a presidential race, but Mr. West would obliterate that historical political paradigm. He’s a game-changer.

A Romney-West ticket would be a veritable juggernaut that would illuminate the vast chasms that separate them from the undynamic duo of President Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden.

While I deeply respect Mr. Rubio and believe he would make a strong running mate, I equally believe Mr. West would do us all proud as the next vice president of the United States. He is a leader, a patriot, a battle-tested veteran and is no doubt a shining star for the GOP and America.

Mitt Romney would be very wise to select Allen West to be his running mate.
