Via foxnews.com » Submitted On Tue, 11/20/2012 - 4:31pm by Norman Wolfe

Rep. Allen West on Tuesday conceded in his re-election effort in Florida's 18 th Congressional District, but suggested he will still be active in politics or public office. The Tea Party favorite and first-term congressman made the statement Tuesday, following two weeks of court battles and ballot recounts in his race against Democratic challenger and political newcomer Patrick Murphy.

He was a favorite until he voted against our freedom as both establishment parties have been. It is time for him to reflect on this! You reap what you sew!

Some were played! I am a Reagan conservative with libertarian leanings. I have found many frauds from both establishment parties. Verify their votes. Always!

Wait a minute - are you saying that you are glad that Patrick Murphy will be voting in Congress instead?

I hope that the nay sayers actually looked at his voting record in Congress. I am not sure why we see so many against Allen West. Maybe someone can clarify.

Norman, your logic fails. Just because you do not like chocolate, does not mean you like vanilla

Neal- here's your clarification: "Washington76" and JSNTPF think Col. West lost because of his vote for the NDAA. Which is nonsense, because no one in his district even knows what the NDAA is.

Just Say No - your logic fails, because there is not an option to reject every flavor - one candidate or the other will occuply that seat in Congress, and will cast votes to "represent" their disrict and commit YOUR taxpayer funds.

I disagree. Just because you are serving ice cream, does not mean I have to eat it. If I do not like a flavor it is MORALLY reprehensible of me to force a flavor that I despise on other people.

A vote is an endorsement not an entitlement. If you endorse leftism you will always get leftism.
