Allen West Betrayed

I totally agree with you! We need the entire Republican Party to be more like Congressman West, NOT the other way around. Mr. West appears to me to be a well-spoken man of honesty, integrity and conviction, all of which have been missing from the political scene for a VERY long time. Sad for me that there is no one like him in my state. I wish there was.

 

Can someone please explain to me why the Republican party of Florida allowed Congressman Allen West to be gerrymandered out of his congressional district?

West is the most prominent and best-spoken elected conservative in the United States. He’s a motorcycle-riding war hero, a passionate Christian, and a patriot. He’s the first black Republican Congressman from Florida since Reconstruction, and he is as strong a vice presidential candidate as anyone. Now he might not even have his seat in Congress next year. Why do we want to take one of our best players out of the game?

It would make sense if this were Massachusetts or California: if a Democrat-majority state...
