I find it interesting that the Republican state legislature decided to screwed Congressman West, who is only African American Republican Congressman from Florida. I hate to say it the Republican state legislators are racist. They should have done everything they could to protect all the Republican Congressmen. Apparently they decided to make two seats less safe and give them to the Democrats than deal with two Congressmen who they decided are not as loyal as they should be.
Albert, I don't see it as racism. I see it as a conservative being taken out by the liberal party establishment elites. I really don't believe the color of his skin had anything to do with it but rather the "color" of his political views. We all know the establishment hates conservatives as much as the demoncrats do. Conservatives are a threat of all demoncrat and republicrat politicians and they will leave no stone uncovered to destroy all of us. Remember, they want power more than anything and are willing to make a pact with the devil himself if it will keep them in power.
Okay you probably right, but I feel that might be some elements of prejudice in their decision as well. They did everything they could to protect the Black Democratic Congresspersons who don't rock the boat.
Albert, that makes my point all the more valid. It is the political persuasion not skin color they hate. A liberal is a liberal regardless of skin color. They will hate a conservative who is white, yellow, red, black, or purple equally; and they have shown this to be true many times.
I respect and admire Col. West very much! I fear for my country for the first time in my 65 years on this Earth and we all need to support Patriots like this instead of un-American scum like Debbie Waserman Schultz. She is the most repulsive woman(???) I've ever met. I will say, however that the Democrats picked the exact RIGHT person to represent them to the American people. Semper Fi, Col. West - Anytime-Anyplace! Charles Patrick Dugan USMC (Ret.) Proud Vietnam Combat Veteran - 0331/0321 1965-1971 - Grunt Till Death and Beyond!
Now that's what I call a leader....I don't hear any of the rest telling them to "Get your leftism the hell out of America"....I could envision Allen West as Pres and Norm Olson as VP..........
I wish Allen West was running for president; he's one remarkable man and just who we need here at this time. At any time, but especially now.
I have been disappointed by all of the new Congressional crop, but i can at least say that some of them are doing part of what they promised. I would have felt much better about the way things were turning if they had stuck to their guns on all of their campaign issues. You have to take the good with the bad, but we can still hold their feet to the fire and make them keep working on the promises that they made.
Col. West was one i the ones that held the most promise for us. He has done good with much of what he has done and i hope that he will come back and start to push ahead with the hard work that needs to be done.
