Allen Wests shocking comments about the Pursuit of Happiness  

AllenBWest.com By : Staff Reporting

A former GOP Congressman #WESTOUTOFOFFICEOUTOFTOUCH pontificated about the World Series and the Pursuit of the Championship on his personal blog. I asked myself how does a person like Allen West, a lieutenant colonel who was punished and kicked out of the military for attempting to make a name for himself in Kuwait, arrive at his collection of thoughts when he says,

However, why is it that we all don’t love the “pursuit of happiness” as enshrined as one of our unalienable rights from our Creator in the Declaration of Independence — the fundamental document, which established our Constitutional Republic? Why is it that we don’t cheer and just go nuts over our individual right to have the equality of opportunity to press on in the pursuit of our own championship?

West is approaching the idiocy of the 47% comments of Mitt Romney, a Presidential candidate who was allowed to go to France and drink wine during the war, while millions of middle class and poor Americans were fighting in Vietnam.

According to West’s logic there are some Americans who would rather not pursue happiness as our Forefathers envisioned. I take it that when West was writing this piece he was just as prohibited in his thinking about the full equality of rights as Thomas Jefferson, a slave owner, was when he wrote the Declaration of Independence; please don’t get me wrong West is no Jefferson by any stretch of the imagination (LOL). I apologize for the laughter.

The Declaration of Independence is so great because it is a document that has withstood the vestiges of time and it continuously perfects our daily lives as it pertains to individual rights.

West, would you listen to Dr. Martin Luther King:

When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

We’re still realizing the promise. Today we give massive amounts of subsides to conglomerates and global entities like one of West’s top contributors when he was actually in office, Exxon Mobil. We allocate billions of dollars in special deductions to the top 1% of Americans while we argue about giving a livable wage to single mom’s working two and three jobs to make ends meet.

Some are asking, if all things are equal, why are we allowing wealthy folks like Mitt Romney to leave a sizable chunk of his wealth in Swiss Accounts untaxed or off shore tax shelters, so the middle class is left footing the bill?

Everyone can’t enjoy a “perfect morning in South Florida for a run” that gave Mr. West the perspective to write his divisive rant. You see some citizens are under assault, because guns and drugs are flowing into their neighborhoods unabated with under-performing schools and high unemployment rates.

Sometimes lofty perspectives like West’s are not achieved if you’re a kid growing up in South Chicago dodging bullets. For some it easy to blame other politicians without having the moral aptitude to understand this dichotomy from the perspective of a child growing up seeing few opportunities and what appears to be easy money flowing around them.

West’s comments are shocking, because they would mock a Creator that has hardwired everyone with the will to achieve happiness. Have you met a subhuman that wouldn’t want to be happy?

And what of the San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, Tampa Bay Rays, Houston Astros, Milwaukee Brewers and Colorado Rockies; teams who haven't won or the Seattle Mariners and the Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals who have never played in a single World Series. From West’s reasoning the thousands of staff and players on those teams either didn’t want it bad enough or didn’t have the will; they’re simply losers in life.
