Since he was defeated in his bid for reelection in 2012, Allen West has been…well, I’m not exactly sure what he’s been doing, other than ranting on his website. But now he’s got a job running an obscure think tank in Dallas, which was so exciting to him that he simply could not turn it down.
There are times when opportunities come your way, which just humble you and such has happened for me.
I have the honor of being named the CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA), a free-market/free-enterprise policy think tank headquartered in Dallas, Texas. This position will afford me the opportunity to have an impact on the development of policy positions, which will advance economic growth, individual opportunity and restore the promise of America for current and future generations.
My goal is for NCPA to be the preeminent Constitutional Conservative policy analysis entity, not advocacy group. We want to align ourselves with the fundamental principles of governance of America as a Constitutional Republic and promote the principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, individual sovereignty, free market economy, and strong national defense.
Wow, your goal is to advocate for a bunch of mostly meaningless catchphrases? That’s impressive. And the good news is that you can’t be court-martialed in this job.
