Voter Fraud was responsible for Obama's re-election! We, the Patriotic Americans have a sence of extreme disappointment! This dangerous, idiot did not win and we are demanding for a recount in those places where the "Black Panther" was standing guard and the ugly picture of Obama appeared on the wall of a School! This was corruption at its best but that is all Obama knows! Has anyone noticed that no one calls Obama President because no one respects him?! He is headed down the path of "IMPEACHMENT!" The same applies to Patrick Murphy and the Voter Fraud that went on in St. Lucie County! Col. West, don't give up, we are all rooting for you!
I heard he did not concede and demanded a recount. I guess it didn't work out for one of the best conservative African Americans alive today.
Allen West is a man of integrity and honor, which is more than I could say for divisive, Marxist Obama.
TX is in a similar situation with Quico Canseco, TX23. He says he has proof of voter fraud and will not concede. I don't have him anymore since the latest redistricting to make all blue/"hispanic"--I'm stuck with Julian Castro's evil twin.
This is still an ongoing thing as the recount has not happened. I just checked http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83476.html a few minutes ago.
It ain't over yet!
Our race is far from decided and there is no rush to declare an outcome. Ensuring a fair and accurate counting off all ballots is of the utmost importance. There are still tens of thousands of absentee ballots to be counted in Palm Beach County and potential provisional ballots across the district. Late last night C
ongressman West maintained a district wide lead of nearly 2000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections “recounted” thousands of early ballots. Following that “recount” Congressman West trailed by 2,400 votes. In addition, there were numerous other disturbing irregularities reported at polls across St. Lucie County including the doors to polling places being locked when the polls closed in direct violation of Florida law, thereby preventing the public from witnessing the procedures used to tabulate results. The St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections office clearly ignored proper rules and procedures, and the scene at the Supervisor’s office last night could only be described as complete chaos. Given the hostility and demonstrated incompetence of the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, we believe it is critical that a full hand recount of the ballots take place in St. Lucie County. We will continue to fight to ensure every vote is counted properly and fairly, and accordingly we will pursue all legal means necessary.
Thanks for posting his statement.
I've just checked here http://enight.dos.state.fl.us/CountyReportingStatus/
Concerning the first point mentioned by Allen West: I don't catch it why the Florida Department of State reports 100% Precincts reporting while in several Counties the absentee Ballots apparently aren't yet counted.
If I catch this right, then the numbers could change by several thousands - at least for the presidential election - as the voter turnout in Palm Beach County alone is indicated by 559,136 votes.
I'm speechless, I cannot find the words to describe this lose. Allen West our TP hero, a true American patriot, what Conservatism stands for.
Shame on you GOPe, AKA: Rove, you RINOs will learn the hard way come to 2016. You will be purged, if there is anything left of goodness and strength. I'm beyond disgusted, even more so with Faux New's.
The Media, GOPe, Dem's all are in the pocket for the Globalist movement. I'm not going to hold back anymore, this country has been infiltrated. I didn't want to believe-it either. But ignorance is bliss, a truth is strength.
I'm angry, but more too, very worried for our once Great Nation.
According to Allen West's facebook page, he is conceding nothing at this point. He says that until St. Lucie County decided to "recount" the early voting ballots he was ahead by 2000. Suddenly after this recount he was behind 2400. He also says that in direct violation of Florida law, St. Lucie County locked the doors to polling places disallowing the witnessing of the procedures to tabulate results. He ways he will pursue all legal means necessary to hand recount of the St. Lucie County votes.
My heart aches this morning for the greatest country the world has ever known:
Reagan said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
Who would have ever thought that, "Build it and they will come," would turn out to be a curse?
"Send us you poor, your tired, your tempest tossed...your teeming masses,,,yearning to be free..."--the final, great irony.
West is everything Murphy is not..he will rise and win at another time and then go on and be the President some day..count on it!
Allen West's district was redrawn by Florida's Republican leadership. The new district is now evenly split among Democrats and Republicans. Prior, West's district leaned toward the GOP. This was the cause of his defeat last night and he can thank his fellow Republicans for his tragic lost last night.
Not exactly accurate. Col. West's district is in one of the most liberal areas in the state. An area that becomes more liberal every year, as more northeastern 'transplants' move down here to retire, in an effort to get away from paying 'their fair share' of the taxes they voted for in their home states.
"Three states, Florida, Iowa and Maine, give 'independent bodies'? authority to propose redistricting plans, but preserve the role of legislatures to approve them'.
Col. West's district was 'Gerrymandered'.
"In the process of setting electoral districts, gerrymandering is a practice that attempts to establish a political advantage for a particular party or group by manipulating geographic boundaries to create partisan or incumbent-protected districts. The resulting district is known as a gerrymander ( /ˈdʒɛriˌmændər/); however, that word can also refer to the process.
Gerrymandering may be used to achieve desired electoral results for a particular party, or may be used to help or hinder a particular demographic, such as a political, racial, linguistic, religious or class group."
You're correct about West's original district being liberal. The redrawn district was far more liberal however. But your're wrong about gerrymandering.
Gerrymandering is used by the ruling incumbents/political party to ensure that districts are redrawn to favor incumbents of that political party and boost their reelection prospects. In the case of Florida, West's district was redrawn with a Republican Governor and a Legislative body (Senate and House) also controlled by the GOP.
The new district West was force to run in was redrawn by making it more Democratic and liberal and that's not gerrymandering. But, it's all over now and we appear to have similar political views.
I think he'd be good for next election but only if we start this #war on the media , like Andrew said. "the wall we must climb" Lets take it down brick by brick.
No con will do well even next time around unless we fight back against the media (MSM)
#Benghazi is a perfect example. They distort just about everything
A sad day indeed-- the presidency in the hands of someone who is taking his "lead" from the most evil motives in human thought, and Allen West defeated by a minion of the President.
WE MUST NOT GO GENTLY into that good night, the battle is not ours but God's and we cannot lose our trust in the Almighty to guide us as to how to bring out "the precious from the vile." He is our refuge and strength. "We have not begun to fight...."
You are right. His own party did this to him. They gave us Romney and they redistricted West out of office. He's a good man and I view this loss with pain.
is the race still undecided http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1112/83476.html
It's hard to remember this when things don't go the way "we" want them to.. but, when one door closes another door opens, and if God is in it.. it's an even better opportunity.
You're an idiot if you think God favors one party over another. Like a mother and father have to let their children make mistakes to learn wisdom so does God have to let His children make mistakes to learn from them. Over half the country votes for immoral leaders, God gives them what they want.. unfortunately ALL of us have to suffer because the majority are a bunch of lovers of immorality!
So is America following the Bible?Which interpretation?In my christian morality(catholic) we don't recognize the Moromon Bible.I would be satisfied in my religious doctrine that a previous Mormon Bishop running from president failed.
America will remain a christian country and God is not going anywhere since he is omnipresent.
God giving people free will doesn't make Him a bad parent, it makes Him a loving Father. He gives us choices, and America has been making bad choices for a really long time. When you push God out of everything you get a Godless country.
It is very simple the GOP lost because they could not understand math and basic demographic models.In 2016 in Texas,Whites will become a minority and projections are by 2020 It might become a blue state.If that happens we won't need even swing states anymore.
Your last sentence was also ridiculous what did you mean that a majority are lovers of immorality?Because we did not vote for Mitt makes us immoral.You clearly think you are on God side instead of hoping he is in yours.Maybe that why you lost.Maybe he is against Mormons or rich people?
Didn't the Republicans redraw his district in order to run him out of town? That's my understanding of it. The RINO's preventing the Tea Party from reforming the piece of crap Republican party we have now. Losers making sure they keep losing.
I might be done with politics. I think we've lost the battle for this country on the political front, probably forever because we are going to nose-dive. I might bow out and wait for a revolution.
We need you in the fight-- this enormous loss must bring us together and light our fires to continue the battle, my friend. No it will not be easy. Yes we may see darker night before we see the beginning of the dawn's early light, but fight we must. Stay in the fray.
"Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free and be not entangled again with the yoak of bondage..." that's our call to arms! We must put on the armour of God, the breastplate of righteousness, and charge forth.
I live down here in Florida. The Democrats in charge over there on the southeast side of the state 'Gerrymandered' Col. West's district to include more Democrats after the 2010 election.
Col. West can now become more powerful (and make more money) becoming a 'talking head' on TV, like Gov. Palin has. Mark my words, there are bigger things in store for Col. West. My Mrs. and I are ex-military, The Air Force (in my case) and the Army (in hers), doesn't quit. ;-) ;-)
I feel two things...Either this country just went through a very sophisticated ballot stuffing scam..or in four short years this countries demographics have become, the Godless, who reject their flesh and blood, illegals and criminals..This man should of won by a landslide and so should of Mia Love..and so should of Romney..I can't buy the RINO deal because everyone I know voted conservatives especially..and if you look most of the places they won were seas of red..We knew we had to vote no matter..no one stayed home ...
I have more sinister opinion on this. I personally think the GOP has been compromised by progressives [to a lesser extent than the Donkeys] Allen West became a target for both parties. The soul of the Democrat party was bought and payed for years ago...and now the GOP is in a struggle for it's very identity. Sure seems to me they are attempting to purge the bold Constitutionists.
I am so sorry you lost your race in Florida. But I think it has become obvious to most observers that your leadership is called to bigger things than one congressional district, even though it does our hearts good to see you seated in Congress (Congressman like you are too rare.)
WE LOVE YOU, COL. WEST ... KEEP FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT !
They're reelected Obama
Legalized Pot in my state
Gone pro-gay in others
Refused a champion like Allen West
America has chosen. So have I.
Well, you guys. I'm laying off politics as much as I can for a while. I've been too obsessed with it and I need a new hobby. For one, I need to pray for America because she's made many self-indulgent choices tonight, crying out "Give us Barabbas!" I care about politics and love my country, but I've been driving my wife nuts for 4 years. She means more to me than any politician. I believe my country can recover, by may have to suffer for its choices for a while. I worry because my kids don't deserve that. It's my job to protect them from it now.
So, if you guys don't see me around so much, I think you are all the cat's pajamas.
RShill, ABC, Wolf, Words, and many others here. Peace and blessings. We have 1 Savior, and he's not a politician.
Profound sadness today! Col. West's defeat is unthinkable. Obama's win is unbelieveable. Our country has been fundamentally changed forever. We have an ignorant electorate. An electorate who would rather depend on big govt. One too lazy and ignorant to understand and appreciate our Constitution and the sacrifices that have been made by previous generations to keep us free and make America the greatest nation on earth. We will never be the same.
I can't believe Allen West lost...
I was so hopeful we were going to light up the BEACON and once again be that shining city on the hill...
I don't want to relive the primaries, but I was afraid of this very think when Mitt won.
But hoping against hope and after the 1st debate, and actually even before I was beginning to get drunk on the not-so-kool-aid and thought we had a chance and like the Grinch's heart, my optimism grew 2 sizes these last 2 weeks thinking Mitt would win.
Me too, my optimism was over the top. I really thought we had this, which is what makes this loss even worse. It wasn't nearly as bad when McCain lost -- I NEVER had the confidence he could eek out a win over the messiah-like campaign and glazed over zombies he was up against. But that enthusiasm for Obama was just not there this time -- HOW did this happen??? (I know the answer, but I still can't believe it).
I'm up early here and for extra punishment turned on CSPAN They have callers on air. Democrat/Republicans wow!
The Dems all hate Mitt because he's "rich". They ramble on with the same couple of points over and over.
Repubs. are depressed but Thoughtful.
Im sad to see you go, action speak. I've enjoyed our conversations, and I am just as you are soo very disappointed- to the point of grief. I share much of the same sentiment as you have expressed. Please dont stay away long. We will miss you.
Take care of yourself.
Hi PJ - I am devastated over this election. I'm sad to say that I too will not be engaging in any more political discourse, for the near future at least. The Chicago thug machine was just too much for the Republicans and Mitt. The Republican leadership really blew it for all of us - and I can't even bring myself to call them Republicans. They were fighting against the Tea Party Republicans and it showed. Boehner, McConnell - they are not going to let the conservatives take over their power and positions. They have sided with Harry Reid about the Tea Party. The media is beyond despicable. I refuse to watch any of their stations. Now, we have to look forward to Obama "stacking" the Supreme Court with liberal judges and he will also grant amnesty to millions of Hispanics who will vote Democrat for the rest of their lifes. Republicans need a huge shake up in their ranks or they will never see the inside of the White House again. Bye for now. I've enjoyed our little chats. I've learned a great deal from many of the posters here. IMO - the next 4 years are going to be hell. Nothing in politics will change until all the old guard are OUT - from both sides. I've also learned that these scumbag politicians are not worth my passion or energy. America is, yes, but America has been hijacked and we don't have leaders with the guts to get her back.
Take care all.
