A Great Ticket. I’d vote for the ticket no matter which was at the top.
He’d get my vote.
But running a candidate of his caliber in a nation that elected Obama is like casting pearls before swine.
I’m done w the GOP. This election really was a kick in the balls on many levels.
The Rats stole another one.
West for RNC Chair!
Sarah said the same thing many times. Evil cannot defeat their spirit.
Allen West Concedes to Democrat Patrick Murphy

Combative Florida Rep. Allen West has finally accepted that a recount cannot propel him to a come-from-behind victory and conceded his House race early Tuesday morning to Democrat challenger Patrick Murphy.
While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election, West said in a statement released on his Facebook page.
“I say he should be our next president!”
Sad, but not unforeseen. From what I understand, the district (thanks Florida GOP, you damn idiots) was mostly rat. He still did good and I think he will win in 2 years. I hope he takes this time to recharge and get ready. I hope he goes all out next time. He is a leader in the conservative movement and he needs to be out there, engaging and educating.
You the man Col. West.
It’s over for the foreseeable future with the GOP.
“Allen West won 53,000 votes in in a county with this kind of registration. That’s pretty good especially since 10,000 of those who voted for him also voted for the Democratic Supervisor of Elections who won 10,000 more votes than Obama.
Someone needs to find some of these 10,000 people and ask them what they were thinking.”
Can you clarify please? Obozo only got 33K votes there (can u list totals)?
You want to talk to which 10K, the first group who who went over and above O or the second who went over and above the super?
We’ve lost a grat patriot.
God bless you, Col
But the Col opened the door.
Col Allen West; “I don’t want to see America become like Zimbabwe where people dont trust their electoral process. If we cannot trust the integrity of the voting system then we are no longer a free republic.”
Polls indicated that Romney was going to win the election. The economy is close to Great Depression era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when Obama entered office. Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new movement, the Tea Party.
Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.
So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns?
Massive voter fraud.
There are massive reports of criminal activity
(not mischief, not shenanigans, as many term the fraud- but CRIMINAL ACTIVITY) going on all over the U.S during the presidential election.
Reports of machines changing votes from Romney to Obama, eyewitness reports of Republican poll watchers who observed busloads of non-English speaking Somalians in Ohio being instructed to vote Obama- the list is endless.
Romney lost because of this, not any other reason.
Nobody could have won against the fraud planned and perpetrated by the Obama Machine.
We can not wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America.
That’s what people fail to understand.
Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.
What you can do:
Most of ‘Obama Voter Fraud’ activity is moving to FaceBook.
‘Obama Voter Fraud Volunteers
‘Obama Voter Fraud’ on FaceBook-
Sign their petition- over 99,000 and counting -cards, email
Another petition, The ‘We The People’ petition has 60,000 signatures and counting-
The best Obama Exposure site on the net:
The United StatesLibrary of Congress has

I’ve often been amazed at how much the American psyche is focused on patriotism and how every sporting event, community event and political event focuses on honouring the troops, but how difficult it often is for veterans to be elected. Bush Sr., Bob Dole and John McCain were defeated by young liberal punks who loathed the military and gave no respect to the military service of their opponents. There’s a disconnect here and I can’t quite figure out why military service doesn’t seem to hold any sway with voters.
Floridah GOP did not help West same as kalifornia GOP did not help Bob Dornan. Maybe for similar reasons....rocking the boat.
Our biggest enemy of conservatism is the Republican Party itself. Get out the TEApots, let's have a Party!!
Wait till they find out what they think is imaginary is real. There is none so blind than those who refuse to see. Thank your brother for me - they treated his life as if it were nothing. What can we expect from those who are for abortion/same sex marriage. Evil in, evil out.
Quite a state of affairs that Allen West is not in Congress and Alan Grayson is in Congress.
Pray for this country.
Forget it, Jake it’s Florida.
Title?....... how BOUT COUP LEADER
West should spend the next 4 years running a national business in energy or health care (2 industries on the Rat hit list).
And they did nothing to help him in FL.
Got it, he should. I was thinking AG Biondi. She should start an investigation. Allen West is considered “Tea Party,” so chances are slim to none either will step up for him.
A state now on my list of ‘do not visit’ anymore. Let their tourist $$ crumple. Rush SHOULD move out and move to Texas! Support Patriots and not commies!
This race is over now that West has conceded. No other official will step into the fray, imo.
I Hope he takes a flight to Wasilla and a new Party is formed
After what they did to him and Sarah, payback would be such a Beeeotch....
It is time for a new party folks, the E-GOP sucks on ice...
Exactly, and the fraud will continue.
Congratulations, America - you’ll get what you voted for. In case you’re not sure what that means, google “Marion Barry”.
"Professor emeritus William Perry notes that less than 1 percent of Americans have a family member serving in active duty, and barely one in five members of Congress have ever served in the military."
Whenever I have attended any patriotic assemblies and the host asks any veterans in the audience to stand, and be recognized I am always saddened that there are only a very few us. And considering that the assemblies consists of those persons going to a patriotic function it is even worse for the general population as a whole.
He is charged and more than ready! He's been fighting the enemy all his life - this is old hat to him, it's in his blood. And he did go ALL out this time. What's wrong with you? He's opponent has done NOTHING for our country only for his own pocket! How charged and ready is he?
I pray a new party is formed. Otherwise, we are the unteachable ones! Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.
Take it as a sign that you did your job well. A world war has not broken out in over 67 years.Thanks to you and other vets for your service.
Unofficial numbers in St Lucie show out of a total of 117,000 to 123,000 votes per race:
Democrat Obama: 65,869
Republican Romney: 56,202
Democrat Gertrude: 75,767
Republican opponent of Gertrude: 41,945
Democrat Murphy: 65,000
Republican West: 53,000
10,000 of those who voted for West and Romney also voted for Democrat Gertrude Walker for SoE.
GOP - Washington Generals
Democrats - Harlem Globetrotters
I would be mentally exhausted after this. It would take a large toll and stress must be through the roof. I hope that after a few days he is back and going all in. Start the next campaign next week. In fact, all of the GOP should be doing that. Why give the rats a grace period?
I wonder what threats were leveled against him?
This is a sad day for America. Congress and the Presidency can now be openly stolen. What is left?
You make him sound like you and he is not! He has been fighting evil for the majority of him life - where his LIFE was on the line.
In fact, all of the GOP should be doing that.
The GOP is dead wood who only fights Patriots and never stands up FOR them. Why don't you admit that for surely you've been giving enough evidence.
He doesn't need a few days - he is a Patriot! It's his life - he LIVES IT. Something you are UNABLE to get.
So, the Rats stole another one.
Yup. The day after the election, I looked at my wife and said in a tired voice: "Honey, the country we grew up in and loved all of our lives, no longer exists." She just looked at me with the same stricken face she'd been wearing for the previous 24 hours and nodded. You get the government you deserve. We're gonna GET IT, big time. And it will be too late to "do over" and too late to do anything but pray and look upward.
A sad development for our country.
Yes, the troll-fu seems to be very strong on all the sites in response. Had to come here to hear myself think.
Allen West was defeated.
Allen Grayson was re-elected.
Welcome to Obamaland. :)
They have my vote anytime they decide.
And that person is a 29 year old punk who's claim to fame is worked at his daddy's company and got busted drinking on a fake ID.
This is the best the Dims can offer.
Says more about the voters than the candidate or the Donkeys.
Colonel West you are a patriot. Please run for another office. Or even better work for FOX or The Blaze.
This makes me sad for our Marxist leaning country.
Not one word of that is accurate except the part about the Dems. Not a single word.
