Comment by Jim Campbell
Liberals/Progressives/Socialists and yes communists in the United States Congress hate him because he is one of few Republicans that has the guts to stand up to them and as he likes to say, “Call a spade a spade”

Letter: West is unique leader, and that’s why liberals go after him.
My opinions were recently attacked in a letter by Howard Staiman (Aug. 2) for my logic in supporting Allen West for Congress.
My point was that West will do more for U.S. House District 18 than Martin County Sheriff Robert Crowder can because of West’s national stature and the fact that Crowder would be just another freshman member who would need to spend many years trying to get the same recognition that West now enjoys.
Staiman attacks West for his “ill-considered” comments about certain members of Congress. I am sick and tired of representatives in Congress who don’t say and do what needs to be said and done, but instead use the “politically correct” governmental language to dance around topics. West says what he believes and he sticks to it.
Just look at West’s military record to see that he is a man of integrity who loves his country. West is attacked simply because he is a fiscally conservative politician who also happens to be black. This combination does not fit into the liberal stereotype.
