It appears to be official. The Florida Secretary of State’s website has the difference around 2,381 votes. What a huge disappointment for a man with such promise.

But if I know Allen West he’s not done fighting. In fact, in my opinion this is the perfect opening for him to prepare a run for President in 2016. We’re gonna need someone who can lead people and I can think of no one better suited for that job than Lt. Col. Allen West.

    Not a surprise. That’s precisely how the RINOs set up his district.

    • SurfinCowboy

      Sadly, I agree.

        Our youth being brainwashed with antichrist education funded by us, are voting with deceived hearts that are bent on destruction & they don’t know it, because their “teachers” are selling them on immoral socialism as the answer like it was done in Russia not too long ago.

        It’s time we humble ourselves before God, repent & pray, trusting in Christ our Hope.

        Must make Bible reading part of our comeback strategy.

        Read in Judges, Samuel, Kings, Chronicles, Psalms and proverbs and all the other prophets, how when people humbled themselves and put their trust in The LORD, God delivered them. When they wanted to be like all the other nations (i.e. atheist aligned socialist European nations), the people suffered.

        With the right focus, could we repent daily and stand strong in The LORD even when politicians are trying to outdo one another on who can be more socialist than another. Losses last night included Congressman Lt. Col. Allen West.

        Our Hope must be on The LORD and not on men, for answer will not come from around us but from above, if our hearts are humble and listening to what He whispers in still small voice, and not on foxnews or any other liberal compromising outlet, maybe men like him could have an opportunity to lead our nation one day again.

        Fix our eyes on our LORD and not on others who want to compromise with evil. http://on.fb.me/RVD6TR

      So they would rather lose the seat than have a real conservative!

      • Rightstuff1

        Yes, I’m afraid so.

        Oh, God, yes. Once a day, and seven times on Sunday.

    • sara holy land

      What is the meaning of the word , RINO ?

      • MaxineCA

        It means “Republicans In Name Only.” In other words they are part of the entrenched DC establishment and not constitutional conservatives.

        • sara holy land

          Thank you.
          I have no words to describe the disappointment ………..

      • Is_Sense_Common

        Republican In Name Only.
        They are the ones who have an (r) by their name but continually vote like democrats – for big govt and gun laws and the ilk. Scourge of the party and will be the reason the Republicans will become the 3rd party. They’re really just democrat-lite.

      • NoToTyrants

        It is an acronym for Republicans In Name Only.

        In other words they are wolves in sheep clothing. They call themselves Republicans, but often vote or side with the Democrats to gain favor with our media or to receive some kind of pay off from special interest lobbyists.

        They are corrupt unprincipled political prostitutes. Sorry if I have offended any prostitutes.

      • Jonathan Miller

        RINO is a standard, here is a new one I heard used to describe John McCain. He is a “DID”. Or, a Democrat in Disquise.

  • nook34

    This makes me almost sicker than Romney losing

    • colliemum

      Same here.
      I still can’t get my head round this – what is the matter with those people who voted for the dem?

      • bongobear

        Don’t forget that Florida is full of snowbirds from the liberal bastions of the northeast.

        • Vornak

          Time to determine how many of those snowbirds vote in both places.

  • justinquiring

    This is not good. A remarkable person loses to a real loser.

  • DavidScottMasiwchuk

    Makes my ill…….Idiot republicans. Guess they shouldn’t have redistricted huh?

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      No, the RINOs got exactly what the wanted: one less Tea Partier at the party.

      • DavidScottMasiwchuk

        Well I least I was Proud I voted for him…..

        • leel004

          I envy you David, you got to vote for him. What a memory. I called his office and told them when he runs for prez, I will help out any way possible

    • pecajo

      I was born and raised in Florida and I am ashamed of that state today. My parents are still there in Osceola County that just went for Obama and Alan Grayson. I don’t think you can get much worse than that. I can tell you that it is transplants from the Northeast and Puerta Ricans from the South that are turning Florida into California East. The trend has been going on for a while now. Central Florida used to be filled with Cattle families and good ol boys but they are just about all gone now for other parts.

  • http://twitter.com/wbcsaint Sam R

    The progressive machine has spoken, there is no way Mr West should have lost this race.

    • 3seven77

      I smell voter fraud big time; in West’s case and certainly in the Presidential race. Problem is, even if we have absolute rock-solid evidence such as video, documents, and eye-witness testimony, unless this is prosecuted on a state-by-state basis, nothing will happen. The Department of INJustice doesn’t care, this worked for their guys. I am afraid that 2012 has just emboldened them.

    Allen West lost, yet he’s can be president? I like Allen West a lot and would like to see him as a nominee for president, but that doesn’t sound electable when you lost your seat… I think he should run in another district and get his seat back for 2014. Hell if the scumbag Alan Grayson can do it, he should have no problem!

    • poljunkie

      How on earth did Grayson win? This is such a horrible night!

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steven-Valdez/1806887704 Steven Valdez

        What makes it worse is trying to pick up the pieces with all the polls shows and predictions for Romney.. I’m pretty down and trying to dust off and get back up but right now it’s hard finding the silver lining..

      • RocklinConservative

        People like ugly anymore .. and I’m not talking about looks. It’s a values thing. The grown ups have left the building.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Brian-Carter/100003210339781 Brian Carter

      West is awesome. His loss is devastating.

      While I think he is a natural leader, I don’t think he can viably run for president in 2016. Running for a senate seat (6 years away) or a state wide office is probably necessary.

      Also, we have a very deep bench:
      Marco Rubio
      Scott Walker
      Sarah Palin
      Rand Paul
      Bobby Jindal
      …many others…

      …all of them have pros and cons, but they are real conservatives/libertarians.

      Then, you have the John McCain/Mitt Romney big names pundits will push on us:
      Chris Christie
      Mitch Daniels
      Numerous milquetoast senators

      Finally, you have holdovers from this cycle who are “next in line”, conservative, but with bigger cons:
      Paul Ryan
      Rick Santorum

      Launching somebody before they are considered ready is not good for them, our cause, or the country.

      • Marridge

        Please no more moderates and centrists. HAVE WE FINALLY LEARNED OUR LESSON, Republican Party?

        No more semi, pseudo lefties please.

        CONSERVATIVES ONLY!

        SCREW THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Brian-Carter/100003210339781 Brian Carter

          BEFORE Romney lost, Tucker Carlson was pushing the meme we need moderate, pro-abortion candidates who appeal to women because America is more secular.

          I will concede, as per another thread, he might be correct about the numbers, etc., but ideologically he is WRONG. He is saying, because demographic shifts are against us, we must surrender core principles.

          Last time I checked, most Hispanics active Catholics and pro-life.

          I am with you, Sarah Palin, and Mark Steyn…we need a passionate defender of conservatism.

          • http://twitter.com/BombsAndDollars Bombs And Dollars

            We DO need candidates who can appeal to the voters.

            Making bone-headed comments about abortion don’t help you appeal. We have multiple case studies that can help test your theasus. If running the farthest right pro-life “conservative” would help us win, then Akin and Mourdock would have won. They LOST. They lost seats that they would have won if they had expressed more moderate positions on the abortion and rape issue.

            Another issue Romney got hurt on was the auto bailout and FEMA. Some people thought he was anti-bailout, and other people thought he wanted to get rid of FEMA–or at least increase the state’s role in disaster relief–both of which were considered to be conservative positions.

            • http://twitter.com/FoxiesDoxies Foxies Doxies

              So basically concessions and progressive-notsolite is the answer? Are we mirroring Iran and the nuke issue until the issue no longer matters cuz one day the b o m b will go off. Keep bending, leaning, and twisting until you no longer represent anything but a label of progressive propaganda? That is how we ended up here and now. The conservative movement needs to truly educate and discuss what they stand for and why – in simple terms and be willing to get down in the mud and fight like they give a damn. I’m sick and tired of the “well he’s a nice and good man…” Give me a break, seriously no marxist is nice or freakin’ good. McCain did the same thing. It’s the shadow figures running the game that need to be outed and beheaded (figuratively). 0bama won by being mean, lying his half-white/black ass off and all the while we are labeled a nation of cowards and racists. Ok… where are the Tylenol?!

        • http://twitter.com/BombsAndDollars Bombs And Dollars

          Learned our lesson? What lesson? You mean that many Americans think the GOP is too extreme and is waging an imaginary War on Women?

          One of the reasons we lost was abortion (look at the polls). Troy Aiken and Richard Mourdock made bone-headed comments about abortion with regard to rape, and those comments turned the public against them–they ended up losing.

          We need to run people who can win election, not people who make comments that the public feels are wrong.

        • meyou

          Could not sleep last night. In 2008, I stopped watching all news that first Wed. in November. Then about a month ago I resumed watching Fox, now back to NO NEWS, no visuals, no audios, no BS, no dogs & ponies….You’re so right, Marridge, the Rep. party has got to go. We HAVE to form a new party–it’s been done before, it can be done again. Can hardly wait to hear Rush today (if I can stay awake)

          And screw fat azz Christie too! He better not run.

      • colliemum

        Some of us have said early this year that the Bush machine was happy to lose this election, to make the way free for nominating Jeb.

        We were laughed at, then, and called names.
        Looks like we were right all along.

      • http://twitter.com/BombsAndDollars Bombs And Dollars

        Christie “took on the unions” and he also takes on liberals by yelling at them at events.

        Mitch Daniels is even better. I used to live in Indiana. He balanced our budget, got us a AAA credit rating, and passed right to work.

        Mitt Daniels would have been great if he ran this year, but he doesn’t want to run, partly because his wife has a checkered marital past and doesn’t want the limelight on the family.

  • blackbird

      Here, here!

    • BHliberty

      I have a feeling that after the election we haven’t heard the last of Sarah Palin! I think she is about to become unleashed! (Isn’t her contract with Fox about to end?)

      • colliemum

        I do hope so.

        Here’s another lesson from British History:
        Margaret Thatcher was vilified during the last Labour Government in the 1970s. She was depicted as shrill, not womanly, polarising … and had a large number of members in the Tory Party who fought her tooth and nail when she was elected chairperson of the Tory Party.

        Then she won, in 1979, after the country had been totally run agianst the bffers by the socialists.

        The rest is history.

        So I hope Sarah Palin can pick up the conservative movement (note well: I’m not saying the GOP!) and pick up the country in 2016.
        If there’s something left still worth picking up …

    I agree with you Scoop, West should begin his campaign now to run in 2016. I wish he had listened to many of us and run this time around. I still cannot believe what has just happened this election night.

    Now what? Do we continue fighting on or is it just a dream to think that we could ever return to being a true Republic again? Should we all move to Texas and along with the other Southern states secede from the Union to start a new, saner nation of conservatives and let these liberal fools have the Left Coast and the Northeast? Let those who bought into Obama’s lies bask in The One’s empty promises and ultimately find out that the REAL Obama cares nothing about them and that they will be cast aside as useful idiots in the very near future as the radicals’ agenda unfolds.

  • BabyMal

    How could this have happened? Romney was up 3-6 in Florida, trending up in Ohio, PA, CO, WI, Iowa. Independents were breaking huge for Romney, even in the D+11 polls and what not.

    Something is seriously wrong. It is either systematic in the GOP or it is illegal.

    • RocklinConservative

      My vote is illegal.

      • colliemum

        So is mine.

        This is not moaning about sour grapes, we saw the numbers, we saw the crowds.
        Perhaps we took our eyes off the ball, not believing that cheating could be so massive – like, who checked the early votes, who checked the absentee ballots?

        • warpmine

          We all knew if the race wee to be close the cheaters would somehow make it happen for the usurper. This is why it was so important to stop this A-hole through legal means. We knew they would stop ay nothing to get their man in for another four years.

          With the crap that went down in Philadelphia last time and again this time, you could see what was going to happen, the fraudsters won. If only we cared enough about the sanctity of the process, we would have put up many checks to the fraud but they chose ignore the warnings.

          What happens now? Holder in contempt, the most corrupt DOJ in history.SoS, another corrupt and ineffectual bag of slime balls. Grab your ankles folks and kiss it all good-bye. The value of money will further decline as it’s printed circa 1929 Weimar Germany. Stiffer demands on already over burdened small business. Government intrusiveness everywhere.

          I jnow one thing for sure, I will pray that if comes crashing down around them quickly so we can pick up the pieces to start anew.

  • AbdulBX

    The turnout among blacks and Latinos was too much too overcome in a general election. Then you sprinkle in the white women and this is what you got. I really wonder how much Paul Ryan really hurt the ticket and down the ballot races. Allen West, Nan Hayworth both tea partiers in ’10 lost. I wonder how many more?

    • RocklinConservative

      Can we get rid of the Tea Party label and the Conservative label and start just calling ourselves the Party of the Constitution? Let’s bring everyone back to basics. Educate them during our election process on the constitution because you know no one gets that type of education in our schools. And since that is anti-progressive, I don’t see it changing any time int he future.

    • http://twitter.com/BombsAndDollars Bombs And Dollars

      According to what someone quoted in exit polls, Bush won 40% of the hispanic vote, McCain won 30%, and Romney only won 20%. They don’t have radically different policies, so it’s strange that the vote totals would change that much, but if the hispanic vote was what it was during Bush, it wouldn’t be such a big problem.

      • Wisewoman2

        That is because Obama told them that even though they were illegal he wouild not deport them. Practically every Hispanic agreed with that action and voted accordingly. That illegal move by Obama cemented their vote nothing else. During the primary Romney said they should self deport, no tution, no welfare, etc. As I have said in the past, you Republicans (former 40 yr democrat, now independent, leaning repub) have only one path to the white house and that is to not just court the hispanic vote but put a Hispanic on the ticket as vice president. Romney had the ideal candidate in Marco Rubio but I believe he did not select him because his base conservatives would not have supported his choice. He ended up with Ryan a man who could not help him win not one state including his own. However, Repubicans were delighted with his choice because it finally “brought the party together.” It did not help them win but conservatives thought it was a great choice. How can it be a great choice when they lost every battleground state except NC including Ryan’s own state? Repubicans must learn to fight strategically in order to save this great country. Also when people like Todd Akins and Murdock make a grevious error they must step aside for the good of the country. They refused and Republicans had to carry the burden of their comments. Chalk up 2 seats lost in the senate that should have been a shoe in for both states since Romney won them by 54 and 55%.

  • RocklinConservative

    I’m sure 4 years of O will have the middle east in such disarray those that voted for him will be begging West to become president.

    • Marridge

      Disarray? Kinda, I suppose. More like a caliphate. Barack hussein obama is a muslim, of the murdering kind that is, and muslims have only ONE goal, and that is to establish a caliphate. Allen West on the other hand is an American hero. Someone that barack hussein obama cannot exactly compare to.

      • http://twitter.com/BombsAndDollars Bombs And Dollars

        Obama isn’t establishing an American caliphate or any other Muslim conspiracy. His main problem is that he’s a socialist. Socialists are bad no matter what religion they are.

          Yes that is true, the move did not help him, but I think there was something else he had a debate with Murphy and I think the setting of the debate didnt help him, and the Liberal talked like a moderate.

    Think of it this way. Someone like Allen West should not have defend any lefties. They are not worth defending and they don’t deserve someone like him defending them. He is our hero, and he will rise again.

  • AbdulBX

    I know you all love Allen West, but he along with Bachman and others have made it way too easy for Dems to label the party extremists. Everyone does not live and die with politics like we all do. So, they look at West and Bachman as crazy people.

    Gop may only p/u one US Senate seat, while the Dems have P/U 2. Shocking.

    • xjesterx

      Here’s the problem with that theory… they label McCain, Romney, and all the “acceptable” i.e. “non-extreme” candidates that way anyway! Romney wants to take away women’s rights…etc. etc.

      How do you think they labeled Reagan?? The problem is that the candidate must be able to clearly defend the principles of conservatism. Instead of being afraid that they will get attacked for “helping the rich”….come right back and say, “What is wrong with being rich? Everyone in this country can be rich!”

      Someone told me “well, I didn’t like how Romney had overseas investments”. Instead of trying to tell them how reasonable Romney was, I immediately said, “What’s bad about investing? Even overseas?” They had no answer.

      Our candidate can reach out to hispanics…but reach out to the huge Catholic pro-life latinos. There are a LOT of angry Mexicans over the gun fiasco right now. All I heard was pandering…”we won’t send you home”.

      The problem is not being painted as extreme… the media does it anyway. The problem is we need a candidate like Reagan who is not afraid to talk about conservatism.

      • http://twitter.com/BombsAndDollars Bombs And Dollars

        It’s not the content of a message that makes a candidate seem extreme. It’s the language. For example, West once said that members of the so-called “progressive” caucus were “communists.” His basic point was that they support far-left idiotic policies. If he expressed the same message without using such language, talking about how they support far-left policies that are out of step with most Americans and about how their policies deny people liberty and hurt the economy, then it would be harder for the extremist label to stick to him.

        • colliemum

          The corrupt MSM will label anybody as ‘extremist’, no matter what. The left will label anything, even and especially when true, as ‘extreme’.

          The lesson conservatives must learn is that playing nice to the corrupt MSM or to left ideologists won’t win them anything, but will lose them votes.

          If clear speaking becomes impossible, then a society is lost.

        • xjesterx

          Romney never used the word “communist” and they did it to him. He AVOIDED going down that road as did McCain. The Dems have some TRUELY extreme people in their party…EVERY party will. You can’t avoid having them. The media will find a preacher who wants to kill people who calls himself a “Republican” and then say…see!! we told you!!

          You have to be willing to educate, defend and talk about conservatism. Do not be afraid. We need more Allen West’s, not less.

    • sDee

      The media portrayed them as crazy. The GOP long ago abandoned the core principles of limited government, the Constitution and liberty. The education system has not taught anything but relativism.

      This is all classic marxism – the making of a tyranny fueled by state propaganda. Pretending there are two distinct parties is simply moving air around inside the balloon.

      The Republican Party has rendered it self irrelevant in stopping the march toward globalism. It died last night.

      • Patriot077

        Yes, you are absolutely right. Pat Caddell said the media are the danger to the American people. The only ones speaking the honest truth are labelled extremist and anyone who attempts to right a wrong is smeared and jeered.

        As I type this, the heavens have opened and I feel like God is crying for us.

    • http://twitter.com/BombsAndDollars Bombs And Dollars

      Agree! Sanity for once. I agree with West’s ideological principles, but he shouldn’t be saying the things he does about Democrats, saying “leave this country,” and saying many of them are communists. It is true that Obama is a socialist. I’m a commenter, and I’ll say that–I’m not an elected official. Speak like Reagan did. He didn’t throw around cable news lines designed to slam the opponents in visceralic sound bytes. Similarly, Akin and Mordock lost Senate seats because of their tendency to speak in heated language.

      Democrats can be just as angry, and they are hateful–Alan Grayson for instance–so we should expose the Democrats.

GROW SOME BALLS YOU IDIOTS and in case the intelligencia of the party forgets, ALL MODERATES ARE LIBERALS no matter their party affiliation. Prepare yourself for an American-sized Greece-type collapse and the revenge the DEMs will unleash after Obama is sworn in…Hollywood has alread had some choice comments. We’ve all been played for fools, when the likes of Alan Grayson return to office. Who were the idiots that drew the boundary lines for this stunning loss? There was a deal struck in some private meeting without much thought about the american people. I’m through wasting my time posting of these sites, enjoy the next thousand years of darkness.

    Two days ago I said that West, sounded defeated in the last week. Also I’m not a big fan of West because words are contrary to the voting record as a congressman. But I disagree with the GOP FL. with West, to sacrifice him and create a district that they knew he could not win.

    • tinlizzieowner

      The Democratic, liberal bastions like Miami and Orlando on the southeast side of the state control the population majority. For the most part, the rest of the state voted Republican. The reason that this is the only state that hasn’t been called for one candidate or the other is that there are only a very few votes separating Obama and Romney and the libs haven’t managed to rig the vote, yet.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jaspersilvis Jasper Silvis

    We need a true leader. Romney/Ryan seemed to be the right leaders for the current state of our country. Problem is, we were all thinking about our economy and not the cultural decay of our country that got us to this economic mess. Over the past several years, we lost our sense of history, our sense of pride, our sense of love for our founding principles, our sense of appreciation for our American culture. We need to fix those things before we can ever fix our economic mess.

    Our economy is a WHAT, but our culture and sense of who we are as Americans is our WHY. Allen West talked about our purpose and mission as Americans more than anyone else in public office. He opened our minds and hearts to what the American culture used to be and what it needs to return to in order to regain our glory.

    In the rush to solve a particular problem, we focused our gaze to a great problem solver. Romney/Ryan had the skills to slowly tighten the spigot, so that we are lessening the amount of waste and bleeding of our economy. Allen West, in his short time in congress, taught us WHY the spigot was on in the first place.

    We need to address the decay of the family, the decay of the church, the decay of the community before we address the decay of the American economy.

    I foresee great leadership from Allen West beyond Congress. I see him as our next President. However, I first see him as one of our best advocates for Americanism, along with Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh.

    West/Bachmann 2016.

    God’s grace be with you.

    • stage9

      I’m not claiming to know it all, but I truly believe that the age of the Conservative ended with this election. Our nation is becoming more and more secular, and secular people do not vote for Conservatives. They will vote for a secular liberal who shares their values. As the nation becomes more and more liberal, and the people reject God, the foundations will inevitably continue to crumble. Because secularism never leads to prosperity but only to oppression.

      I’m not trying to be arrogant or a know it all, but I have been following this downward trend for over 10 years now, some have been following for a lot longer than I have, and the one thing that has truly — literally — frightened me is to witness, as a Christian, what happens when a nation turns from God. As I read the biblical prophets and have watched the parallels between how ancient Israel responded to God’s warnings in times of their rebellion and how America has responded, the similarities are eerily similar.

      What really frightens me is not this election, honestly I saw this coming, but that in biblical terms there is a point when God says “enough” and administers His judgment on a nation for her sins. And once that happens no amount of prayer or pleading for mercy will change the course of the judgment.

      I’m not convinced that we’re there yet, although I see the glaring signs everywhere that it’s coming soon.

      But once judgment is declared over a nation there’s no amount of pleading or prayer that will change it. The judgment will have to run its course. If during the judgment the people turn back to God, He has always, in His love, restored what was lost. The people return to their “first love” and embrace God again and the nation recovers.

      But if once the judgment is administered and the people don’t return to God, the society inevitably disappears either through moral decay, invasion or political self-destruction.

      Take all of this for what it’s worth. I am no prophet. But I believe dark days are ahead, and how we respond as a nation will determine what happens next.

      Agree with you but when Maryland votes for gay marriage and Colorado votes to legalize marijuana, I tend to believe that most Americans’ values are gone! I would guess that real judgement has begun from God above. Our children and future generations are going to have a real tough time. Just think of the Bible and what happened to Israel. We know whats coming.

  • Is_Sense_Common

    My biggest concern/issue that kept me up most of the night is that we lost some really Conservative folks who should have won because their states rejected Barry.

    Mia Love – Utah went to Romney. Therefore people willfully voted against her.
    Richard Mourdock – Indiana went to Romney + we elected a very Conservative Republican Governor (Mike Pence). People willfully voted against him.
    Allen West – I really didn’t see that coming. He spoke Conservatism as clear and eloquently as anyone I’ve heard.

    These people are good people who love our country & the principles on which it was founded. They were very purposefully rejected and this causes me much tumult. While I know that God is with each of His believers and provides comfort, peace, and protection, it really just feels as though God took the hint from the lefties and has left the nation to its own peril. Who are we (as a nation) without Him? Just another Babylon, waiting to be pummeled. My heart is broken, not just for our sake but for His sake as well.

Not surprised because our MSM is crap too.

    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.

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).

          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.

    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.

    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.

        • Allenblack

          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?

          • brendawatkins

            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.

              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.

    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

    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’.
      (wikipedia)
      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.”
      (wikipedia)

        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’ll give you that. My use of the word ‘Gerrymandering’ is really an oversimplification of what really went on. ;-)
          We Col. Allen West supporters over here in the southwest coast, were following all of this as it transpired.

    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!

      Thanks nibblesyble, your saying the words I simply cannot find right now– hope! :)

    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.

    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.”

    OH Lordy can it get any worse
    I love West…………….wow scary very sad

    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.

  • CG patriot

    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.

    Can it possibly get any worse?

    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.

  • Dodoforever Canspell

    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.

    • tvlgds

      If they’d only investigate the very real voter fraud, we could overturn this whole mess.

  • tvlgds

    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.

  • Rosebud

    Allen West is a man of integrity and honor, which is more than I could say for divisive, Marxist Obama.

  • TexasVetgal

    we will need him back…2016 presidential run would be welcomed.

  • bobemakk

    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.

    How about validateing the ballots. How many dead voted demoncrat.

    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!
