The most articulate member of the Republican Party. I still get goose bumps listening to his impromtue speech right after deplaning after a trip. He spoke without error, for 15 minutes, without teleprompters. He is so knowledgeable. I sincerely hope he is persuaded to run for Vpres. He would be a shoo-in!

 

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...
