AllenBWest.com expands reach of principled, conservative leader
PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, OCTOBER 18, 2013 – Building on the phenomenal growth of his social media presence, Colonel Allen B. West today launched his own personal website. Allenbwest.com will help expand the reach of his conservative message, provide a rich resource of facts and perspective, and serve as a hub for the growing number of endeavors in which West is involved including an upcoming book, The Allen West Foundation, The Allen West Guardian Fund, speaking engagements and his media presence on Fox News, Washington Times Communities and other outlets.
Since leaving office, West’s influence has expanded at an almost unheard of rate, with his Facebook followers alone growing from 189,000 in January 2013 to over 630,000 today. Clearly his unapologetic, courageous voice is resonating across the nation, and his website will give even greater exposure to his principled stance on a greater variety of issues facing our nation.
“To return our nation to its constitutional principles, to change the direction our nation is heading and restore our American exceptionalism, we must ensure our conservative voices are not attacked and gagged by the liberal media,” said Col. West, “With this website we are proud to join those who will not be silenced.”
West’s site is part of the Liberty Alliance, a network of more than 40 web sites dedicated to advancing Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. The company’s members and strategic partners leverage the power of new media to promote traditional values and generate more than 1,000,000 page views each day.
“We are honored to have Colonel Allen West partner with Liberty Alliance. Colonel West stands as a beacon of hope, freedom, and courage. I can’t think of anyone that more closely represents our values and goals here at Liberty Alliance.” – Jared Vallorani, CIOAbout Allen B. West
