Your take Should Allen West concede? 72% Yes 28% No
the damn Dems are pushing hard on this . Time to help Allen and PUSH BACK !
You should concede.
No. We already lost enough as is. We shouldn’t let West go without a fight.
The latest thing I saw he was ahead, but I’m sure the dims would like him to concede.
Absolutely not....take to a hand count if necessary and wait for every absentee ballot.
There is no law that says the race is over when a persson concedes it. There have been a number of early consessions that are taken back when votes are counted. Heck no West shouldn’t concede!
Hell no!!! Do you ever see them pressure Dems to concede, ever??
Some ballots will be found under the stairs in the basement of a church in a couple weeks, just as they are winding up the recount. He doesn’t have a chance, IMHO.
But no, he should not concede. Prayers that the recount will clearly show him to win.
VOTE THE POLL !
For so long, the polls were overwhelmingly for West....I think he has a legitimate concern....he should count every vote.
We should NEVER CONCEDE!
No because he is now leading in a county that was for the other guy yesterday. Just let it run its course. he is worried about another county where they had problems counting the totals.
people in FLA , chip in . Let us know what you see happening on the ground . Post to FR all local news items that you become aware of there over the next few days .
Yeah. Last I saw he was ahead in the recount. (Now I'll have to check.)
He was ahead in 1 county’s recount, but still behind in the entire district. I hope he keeps fighting.
To the headline: hell no
Observers at the tabulation center included members of the Enforcers motorcycle club, whose members include many veterans and police officers. They say the results could swing in Wests favor when the overseas military ballots are counted. West, an Army veteran, has considerable support among military voters.
The final results of the military ballots will not be known until Friday, Nov. 16 the deadline for them to be received at the Supervisors office. Members of the military are allowed to return their ballots via mail, email and fax.
What’s happening with West? Are they trying to steal his seat: too?
What does it mater, even if he turns out to be 1000 votes ahead, AL Franken will come down with a car trunk full of votes for Murphy.
Should Allen West concede?
A conservative should NEVER concede to a lib.
Not only no, but H*LL NO!
keep us posted...I’m sure if Allen needs a little moula, freepers would chip in...
It will come out that not only this FLA vote was corrupted , but votes in states all across our nation were also corrupted and stolen . This is just the tip of the fetid iceberg. It has long been known that it was their objective to WIN , by any means and they figured out how . ACORN was just the warm up . Now that they hold all the power and control ,and the abilities to hack and corrupt electronics , the fate of our nation is sealed . There is only one way out . Our military must move , when the truth comes out . Support Allen , as he exists in their bullseye right now . But it is much much bigger than him alone . We shall see
No way...the bipartisan Oligarchy are not as afraid of him winning a recount as they are afraid of what he turns up in the way of fraud as doing so!!
Why should he concede before there has been a “fair and accurate counting of all ballots” (excluding, of course, the ones retrieved from trunks of cars)?
I don't think that the West people would be contesting this result if they didn't feel that they really won. Why waste their time? They are asking for a manual recount of the optically scanned ballots, which is the only fair thing to do if the integrity of optical scanners (in particular the former Diebold scanners, now PES, which are used here) has been shown to be breached in the past.
Remember who is opponent is: a 'Rat with a previous criminal record!
Remember as well the words of Edmond Burke: "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."
I think Gov Scott should order the NG down there to seize all voting records and put them under state military guard till this is sorted out. I don’t trust any liberal or dem any farther than I can throw them and I’d like to throw them in the ocean.
What’s the LEFT afraid of? West uncovering their massive VOTER FRAUD?
No — contest every vote
Doesn't he know his place?
YES.. what is he going do once in Congress?.. WHINE?..
He needs to get on with his life.. while he still has one..
America is over till the CWII if there is any courage left in the US....
America got what it wanted.. by hook or by crook..
By crook mostly.. but not completely..
Hell no, The COL will not back down until it is over and no matter how many times the biased media does their polls and keep asking him he will tell them to piss off
No! We must fight these sons of Lenin using every means available. Never concede! Never give up! Use every legal maneuver possible. If we go down, we should go down swinging.
did anyone else notice that Obama lost every state with a voter I.D. law????.....just saying
Freeped & bumped.
Allan is being robbed.
Agreed and yes, we shall see.
Interesting times we live in.
There was a guy on Glenn Beck’s radio program this morning....I think he was a poll watcher at a polling place in Allen West’s area of Florida.
This guy said he saw several people writing on military ballots. When he asked what was going on, they said, “Oh, we’re just organizing the ballots,” or some such words. When the guy said, “Then, why are you writing on them?” they had no answer.
Soros pumped in alot of money to try to help Patrick Murphy, Allen West’s 29 year old dem opponent, who got thrown out of a bar in South Beach ten years earlier and then punched the cops who tried to arrest him.
Why would he give up when there's still so many votes that have to be counted yet and others resent through the machines?
Heck no! Wait until all the votes have been counted. Sheesh!
First and foremost, I want to thank you for all that you have done throughout the campaign. Your support has been truly incredible. I'm writing to give you an update on where things stand.
Our race is far from decided and there is no rush to declare an outcome. Ensuring a fair and accurate counting of all ballots is of the utmost importance. There are still thousands of absentee ballots to be counted in Palm Beach County and military and provisional ballots across the district. Given the numerous reports of irregularities at the polls and the chaos surrounding the counting of ballots, it is important that we carefully evaluate the results and investigate the irregularities.
I know how hard you have worked for our campaign and I am grateful to have you standing shoulder to shoulder with me. I want you to know that we will fight to ensure every ballot is counted just as we will continue to fight to ensure our Republic remains exceptional and the future of our children and grandchildren is bright. For 22 years I stood as a watchman on the wall to guard Americas honor, liberty, freedom, and democracy. Now I will continue my oath of service to guard the integrity of our electoral process.
Allen B. West
