This is great stuff. Colonel West would have my vote if I lived in Florida. I have sent a check. We need more speeches like this. We need more candidates like this. The milquetoasts in the party need to get a spine and kick it up a notch, or get the hell out of the way.

Conservatives have nothing to be ashamed about. America was founded on the ideal that a man left to his own devices will in the pursuit of his own interests create prosperity. This is an ideal that is worth fighting for. This is an ideal that once lost is very hard to regain. The culture of dependence is another word for servitude. People have been taught that they need to be taken care of. That is the antithesis of being free.
