No. We already lost enough as is. We shouldn’t let West go without a fight.

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!

This should tell you something what is the fricking hurry if they are confident the commie democrat won they should welcome a recount by Mr. West. Meanwhile there are well over 500K ballots in 7 California Counties mail in votes which they have over a month to count how come no hurry to count those ballots? Who do absentee ballots usually go for?

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.

For so long, the polls were overwhelmingly for West....I think he has a legitimate concern....he should count every vote.

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.

He was ahead in 1 county’s recount, but still behind in the entire district. I hope he keeps fighting.

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 West’s 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 Supervisor’s office. Members of the military are allowed to return their ballots via mail, email and fax.

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

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)?

The optical scanners used to count votes in the two counties in question (Palm Beach and St. Lucie) have been shown to be unreliable and vulnerable to outside hacking. So why should an honest man who feels that he could well have been robbed not contest this thing to the hilt?

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.

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.

Some of the machines malfunctioned and didn't memorize the vote, and there's still military ballots that haven't been counted yet.

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!

I donated to West's campaign and here is the email I received today:

 

Alfred,

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 America’s honor, liberty, freedom, and democracy.  Now I will continue my oath of service to guard the integrity of our electoral process.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West

Good Hunting... from Varmint Al
