Here are Congressman West’s 6 month accomplishments… What has your Congressman done for you?


This came in about three weeks ago, on June 6th to be exact… This is a revieew of all that Congressman Allen West has accomplished in his first 6 months on the Hill. Here is a man who has a true sense of what it means to work for his constituents and ALL of America. Read through this list and then ask yourself – or better yet – ask your Congressman what they have done for you in those same 6 months! I am willing to bet that you won’t find a detailed report such as this for the vast majority of Congressmen serving you! Perhaps it is time that we take from the example set by Allen West and demand more accountability from our elected officials! In the meantime, perhaps we also need to consider how much he has done and ponder what we could expect him to do as President of the United States?!?

Have a read through the work of one elected official who truly represents the kind of dedication we should all be expecting from the people we send up to DC to be our voice…
