BREAKING: Allen West Seriously Considering Run for President
BarbWire has learned today from a credible “inside” source that Tea Party favorite and former Florida GOP Congressman Allen B. West is seriously considering a 2016 presidential run. The good Colonel seemed to strongly corroborate this information in a post today at his website, Allen B. West. Colonel West is currently touring a number of these United States and meeting with potential voters.
In a post titled, “Day 5 – Austin to Beaumont, TX: The Doors of Life,” he writes the following:
Reflecting upon the closure of one door, as God opened a greater one… I want to share with you that we should not run away from trials, travails, and tribulations. We should count them all joy as we are being perfected for a greater purpose. A diamond is but a rock until it undergoes intense pressure and heat. Steel is purified by intense heat. We cannot seek to live a life where our goal is to go from one oasis to another. Sometimes we have to cross a desert in order to develop inner strength.
Many are asking me to consider a huge undertaking. If God had not placed a challenge before me and closed one door, perhaps a new mission would not be possible. Here I am, traveling along the same path I took in December 2003. I am traveling with my “Band of Brothers” and meeting my beloved countrymen and women along the way, sharing my perspectives as well.
A new door has opened and faithfully I walked through it. This morning a couple of our Motor Marshalls, former NC Highway Patrolmen, expressed their delight in my publicly sharing my faith. I told them I have no choice. I ain’t perfect, but I do know that God guides my steps and protects my family.
And to all of you who have asked me that one question, well, I will consider and be in prayer about it, and chat with Angela [his wife].
Steadfast and Loyal!
