Icons can be powerful in politics. Watch this discussion of the Obama Iconography.
The November meeting of the Republican Club of the Palm Beaches featured Lt. Colonel Allen West, Republican candidate for Congress in Florida district 22.
Colonel West (US Army, Retired) was born and raised in Atlanta Georgia and is third of four generations of military servicemen in his family. His parents instilled in him a very basic principle, love of God and Country. In 2004, when it was time to retire from more than twenty years of service in the US Army, he brought his wife and two young daughters to Broward County, Florida, where he taught high school for one year. He then returned to Afghanistan as an advisor to the Afghan army, an assignment he finished in November 2007.

Colonel West had the crowd on its feet as he encouraged us to pay attention and get active, that “those who do not participate in politics will be ruled by lessor men”.
The meeting was held at our regular venue, Bear Lakes Country Club. In addition to remarks by Colonel West, a very successful auction was held, and many of our members who are veterans were honored with lifetime memberships in the club.
