Allen West Addresses CPAC: “Deeds, Not Words, Will Paint this Country Red”

March 13, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, former Representative Allen West addressed a group of conservative activists during ACU’s annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC 2013) in Washington, D.C.

The Honorable Allen West:

Addressing a crowd of enthusiastic conservatives, West said “We are defined by how quickly we pull ourselves off the mat” and “We understand that the Constitution was written to control the government, not the people.” Addressing the theme of CPAC 2013, West declared, “Now is the time we need a new generation of leaders.

West closed urging attendees to “be a party of action—deeds and not words will paint this country red.”

West’s full remarks are available via YouTube here.
