Lord I pray that every Christian conservative listens to Lt. Col. Allen West on this video, and heeds his words, and Rep. Michelle Bachman, who follows. We have let the Establishment GOP take away from our Godly choices, in this past election, that we, the people of this great Republic, should have had the final say in. Instead we were blindsided by the push of Romney who many that are Republicans or Independents did not want. We cannot let this happen again in 2016. I pray that EVERY Christian, watches this video. Allen is absolutely correct….and a Colin Powell who turned away from his conservative party because of color, Allen is not! He is a true patriot, who we need to listen to.
We electors have an important constitutional power placed in our hands; we have a check upon two branches of the legislature . . . the power I mean of electing at stated periods [each] branch. . . . It becomes necessary to every [citizen] then, to be in some degree a statesman, and to examine and judge for himself of the tendency of political principles and measures. Let us examine, then, with a sober, a manly . . . and a Christian spirit; let us neglect all party [loyalty] and advert to facts; let us believe no man to be infallible or impeccable in government any more than in religion; take no man’s word against evidence, nor implicitly adopt the sentiments of others who may be deceived themselves, or may be interested in deceiving us.

I have one great political idea. . . . That idea is an old one. It is widely and generally assented to; nevertheless, it is very generally trampled upon and disregarded. The best expression of it, I have found in the Bible. It is in substance, “Righteousness exalteth a nation; sin is a reproach to any people” [Proverbs 14:34]. This constitutes my politics – the negative and positive of my politics, and the whole of my politics. . . . I feel it my duty to do all in my power to infuse this idea into the public mind, that it may speedily be recognized and practiced upon by our people.
