ALLEN WEST ON HIS FUTURE: ‘ABRAHAM LINCOLN ONLY SERVED ONE TERM IN CONGRESS…’
The Blaze ^

Posted on 12/02/2012 8:24:13 AM PST by ConservativeMan55

Former Florida Rep. and Tea Party favorite Allen West, who recently lost re-election to Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy, appeared on National Public Radio Friday. Far from despondent, West spoke of Washington politics and his future role with his characteristic assertive, yet calm, tone.

I predict he will challenge Murphy again in 2014 and win.

I could really appreciate a Presidential Candidate in 2016 who is actually a Conservative, sticks to Principles, has Military background, and believes the U.S. Constitution has been trashed and needs to be brought back as the Founding principles of this once-great Nation.

He'd have my vote if he can get past the State-Run-Media onslaught, and the GOP-e lack of funding.

He’d have my vote, for sure. Just wish Romney had had half the fight in him that West has, not conceded so quickly and demanded a recount - or at least an investigation. IMHO he gave up way too soon.

I agree. Romney could have really caused a stink.. and even if it didn’t go anywhere.. raised HUGE issues about voter fraud.

All he did was allow it to happen.

You may be right, but I think he just may hold out for a run against Nelson (or another Democrat) in 2018.

West would be a great Gov .
Scott needs to leave after the voting fraud going u checked that gave Fl to evil Marxist !
Then appointing that nut to the Martin case was a huge stupid move .
His waffling on Obamacare sealed his fate for reelection in FL .

“ABRAHAM LINCOLN ONLY SERVED ONE TERM IN CONGRESS”

He also endured a civil war....as will some President in the not too distant future.

Between the media’s meddling, a huge percentage of the population becoming irresponsible cancers, and outright voter fraud, I’m afraid the ballot box has failed us.

if Allen runs for POTUS, other so-called Conservatives need excuse themselves from running, or they will they split the Conservative vote, & hand it to another rino, again. Go Allen West!

Well, if he runs, and I truly hope he does, we will find out once and for all if a REAL conservative can get elected and/or to certain ethnic groups vote on the basis of skin color or not.

I still wish Cain would have stayed in the primaries, he would have done at least as well as Romney in the general.

These “elites” in the establishment and the media are so locked in to the “global” UN controlled, communist thing that they will only push one of their own kind for elected office; destroying good people (Palin, West) in the process. I think some in that “in” crowd are participants due to gullibility and naivete; others see the huge pig trough and want to feed at it, I guess some are just evil control freaks and think THEY know best for EVERYBODY. - I’m not any more excited about a RINO taking us slowly on the ride to scrap the Constitution than I am about Obama
and the Dhimmicrat’s whirlwind ride to do it.

"They’ll try to destroy him.. but they won’t succeed."

They were successful in destroying Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Herman Cain, etc., and the GOP-e was heavily involved in the bashing.

Conservatives and non-Elite Republican candidate picks are NOT welcomed by the GOP-e.

A 3rd Party candidate ASSURES a Dem win, because those who are on the Gov-dependency side of life will ALWAYS vote straight-D, as long as the Handouts keep coming....when the handouts stop, THAT is when a 3rd Party Candidate has a real shot at the jobs.....

I'd like to see a President West and Sarah Palin serving in an important position in the administration.

The "nonpartisan" employees of the MSM would maybe tolerate them being selected as the Republican Party's choice but the employees of the MSM would never, never allow them one iota of a chance to win. And it would NOT be racist or sexist of them. Of course.

That Romney got 5,000 more votes than West in Martin County sort of throws a wrench in the idea it was ALL vote fraud. Why would you devote more effort to stopping West than stopping Romney in the most important swing state?

Martin county is GOP run and controlled and not an issue .
It was Port St Lucie where a Obama bot black leftist n
Stole the election .
She had secret meetings with the dem candidate and team
And did a special review if the early voting and discovered all these dem votes !

West is way too conservative for anyone other than us Constitutionalists to support him. He makes too much sense for the joe-six-pack/soccor-moms to understand. Plus, he is what the left calls a "plantation negro", not to mention he will never get enough support (funding) from the GOP elite.

I firmly believe this Nation is toast. The takers have won and will never understand nor agree with simple principles like self-sufficiency, work ethic, integrity, pride of accomplishment, opportunity versus guaranteed outcome, et al.

You folks keep looking to the next election to correct things. How'd this last one pan out for you? Myself, I'm now in protect my assets mode with maybe another 15 years of life. Let me know when Revolution 2.0 occurs and then maybe I'll have some hope. Although doubt there could ever be and organized resistance. For me and mine, it's now all about us. I suggest every conservative do the same. The Great Experiment in self-governing is over. Like Alexander Tytler or Franklin said, which neither are proven, but the message is still valid...

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship."

Can anyone on this board argue with that phrase nowadays? Be prepared for the Fedgov to incrementally shift further to total collectivism. In my guestimate, we're about 70% there.

"Not to pick nits, but Palin stood down last time."

Really???

With that all-out assault on her and her family, she took the route to let the frenzied Lefty Loons back off, and watched them assault Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bachman, etc.

She knew the GOP-e already had Romney-the-RINO in the bag.....

The MSM will be out to destroy him even before his name is mentioned as running for anything. If Palin was the most hated, West has to be a close 2nd. Besides, the MSM controls the minds of the dumbed down electorate, who will do anything the MSM wants them to. Alan Keys was a good candidate as was Cain, both being black, Conservative and Intelligent, and yet the MSM managed to put them into the dust bin of politics, as they are ready to do with West. I have to laugh, they say Obama is smart and was an honor student, Gore was smart and was a C- student. I guess no mater what your grades are as a Democrat, it makes you smart when you run as President. Any Candidate in the making that is an obvious threat to the Democrat Party will most likely be destroyed ASAP. The RNC will not support anyone who leans too close to the right. IMHO,they will continue to be wussy and run wusses.
