Rep. Allen West (R-FL) certainly is courageous to call out the members of the Progressive Caucus for what they really are. In an interview with CNN hack, Soledad O'Brien, Rep. West said this:
"At the turn of the century here in the United States of America, American communists renamed themselves progressive, but the strategy and the tactics and the ideology still remains the same," West explained. "When you're a member of a caucus that actually wanted to have a constitutional amendment to redistribute wealth in the United States of America, I don't think that's in keeping with the principles and values of this country."
"I'm calling it this. Communist progressive, Marxist, socialist, statist, which is another term that's been used. I'm looking at the ideologies. I'm looking at the things that they believe in." West said. "And if you don't think we have to stand upon truth and be able to identify and clearly contrast the different principles and values and ideologies and principles of governess here in this country, then we're never going to get to the fact of accepting the true debate that's happening in America."
Rep. West is absolutely correct. It's about time all Americans face the fact about who is really running our country. And for a leader with "true grit" to finally come right out and say it...well, that gives me hope.

The 2012 election is going to be a turning point in America. Do we sit back and let a bunch of Leftist ideologues lead us the rest of the way off the cliff or do we face facts, stand up and fight back to save what's left of our Republic? As far as I'm concerned, the decision is an easy one.
