Posted on 11/20/2012 6:32:59 AM PST by agondonter
I just saw a thread on the bottom of my TV that said Alan West has conceded the election.
Does anyone have any more info?
Mourning in America.
I can barely bring myself to follow the news anymore.
This isn’t my country anymore. Resigned to that.
Not the country I grew up in.
God Bless LTC Allen West. We’re not in America anymore, Toto.
An excerpt from West’s email to supporters:
“While a contest of the election results might have changed the vote totals, we do not have evidence that the outcome would change. Given the extremely high evidentiary hurdles involved in a successful challenge, I will not ask my generous supporters to help fund a drawn-out, expensive legal effort with little chance of success. Therefore, we will not contest the certification or challenge the seating of Congressman-Elect Murphy.
Serving the people in the House of Representatives has been among the highest honors of my life, but this seat does not belong to me, or for that matter, to any individual. It belongs to the people. I want to congratulate my opponent, Patrick Murphy, as the new Congressman from 18th Congressional District. I pray he will serve his constituents with honor and integrity, and put the interests of our nation before his own.”
Another stolen election.
Not a lot of info but plenty of commentary on this other vanity that was just posted. Did you do a search?
The comments posted at the Polutico (on this) are repulsive. These lib fools deserve the country they've so ignorantly voted for. I pray for Col West and the rest of us.
Does anyone have any more info?
I know exactly how you feel. I have not been following the news much and frankly have gotten to the point where I don’t give a damn since they want it, they got it....count me out. Between the crooks ripping off my savings with scam after scam, the government keeping rates down to virtually zero and the moochers demanding more and more deficit spending to fuel their subsistance and life styles, I have arrived at the point where being a prepper is all I care about.
Every day we approach the total stuka and for some, falling from where we were to rock bottom is a far more painful journey than a total stuka in a third world country so the trip will be very contentious.
You just spoke my sentiments. Allen West seemed to give us one last ray of hope.
Nativity Scenes now outlawed in Santa Monica,Ca...
Pot legalized, gay marriage, Islam fast overtaking Christianity by decree... Is this the AMERICA I grew up in the 40’s? Not at all...
Even so Lord Jesus, quickly come.
Yup, read it a little while ago:
Stuart, FL Today Congressman Allen West released the following statement ending the race for Floridas 18th District:
For two weeks since Election Day, we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly. We have made progress towards that goal, thanks to the dedication of our supporters and their unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity of the democratic process. While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.
While there are certainly still inaccuracies in the results, and the actions of the St. Lucie County and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections rightly raise questions in my mind and for many voters, after much analysis and this past weekends recount in St. Lucie County, our legal team does not believe there are enough over-counted, undercounted or fraudulent votes to change the outcome of the election.
While a contest of the election results might have changed the vote totals, we do not have evidence that the outcome would change. Given the extremely high evidentiary hurdles involved in a successful challenge, I will not ask my generous supporters to help fund a drawn-out, expensive legal effort with little chance of success. Therefore, we will not contest the certification or challenge the seating of Congressman-elect Murphy.
Serving the people in the House of Representatives has been among the highest honors of my life, but this seat does not belong to me, or for that matter, to any individual. It belongs to the people.
I want to congratulate my opponent, Patrick Murphy, as the new Congressman from the 18th Congressional District. I pray he will serve his constituents with honor and integrity, and put the interests of our nation before his own.
I must thank my wife Angela, and my daughters Aubrey and Austen for their support, patience, understanding and most of all, love. These are three of the toughest women I know. They have sent me off to defend our nation overseas at war, and to Capitol Hill to serve our nation in the House of Representatives. They have all handled the challenges of these last few months, and the last many years, with amazing grace. I know they will be by my side for whatever is our next chapter.
I want to thank my congressional and campaign staff for their service, and most importantly, I want to thank all of our tremendous supporters who provided their time and money to power our campaign. I am humbled by the dedication and perseverance of our supporters, and their commitment to a free and prosperous America. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for our campaign, but most importantly, what they have done, and will continue to do for our country. None of us should let the outcome discourage us. We should only redouble our resolve.
Above all, I want to thank God for his blessings, and for blessing me with the opportunity to serve.
Only God knows what is in store for each of us. I have dedicated my life to serving this nation, and the results of this election will not change my purpose. Just as I did in the deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan, just as I did on Capitol Hill, I will continue to fight for our Republic.
Our nation will not overcome our challenges overnight, and the road ahead for each one of us will not be easy. But this nation would never have become that shining beacon of light if our founders had chosen the easy path 236 years ago. We all must proudly continue their legacy.
For the protection and preservation of our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, I shall remain steadfast and loyal. God bless you and God bless these United States of America.
spoken as a true PATRIOT.. GO ALLEN WEST!!
God is not DONE WITH YOU... FORGE ON and we will march with you!!!
The RINOs are probably dancing in the aisles in both Tallahassee and DC at the moment of that concession.
God bless Col. West.
Near impossible to prove 2000 stolen votes. Dems have people vote late etc. Absent some Trump style reward people won’t come forward.
