    What a Conservative Candidate Sounds Like

    This guy has a great way of looking at subjects and explaining his point of view.

    Too bad everybody can't hear people like this. We need alot more like this. More like this would wake up the sleeping masses if they actually heard this kind of thing. But we'd probably have to send the current media to China for "re-education" for awhile.........

    While some of things he said were just silly rabble-rousing bumper sticker fodder and cheap applause bait, I don't disagree with the bulk of it, or the message.

    Allen West got thrown overbaord with the rest of the tea party people that were elected in an alarmist knee-jerk reaction.

    Allen West lost (and just barely) because of Gerrymandering in the final months leading up to the election. Mission accomplished.

    The gerrymandering was done by the GOP.

    That's not what I recall Ace. What I recall is that it was slanted towards the Dem. running mates favor. Who did it does not matter, nor change the facts that the establishment wanted him out and they had to use back door underhandedness to do it. JMHO.

    Well , read your local paper or yahoo page. There is a big article on the GOP supposedly doing somethings to restrain the vote. And if I'm not mistaken , Florida's legislature is controlled by the GOP. Making it virtually impossible for the Dems to gerrymander districts. The GOP did the same thing here in Texas with a new district that was predominately Hispanic. The feds ruled it illegal

    Well, if Allen West was put out by gerrymandering, and the GOP was in charge of it... logic does not bode well for TRUE conservatism.

    I have been saying this for a while... IMO this tidbit about gerrymandering to put your own guy out supports my thesis: The 'old guard' in the GOP is what us conservatives really need to get rid of. Seems to me they are not much different than the dems in they do not want the light of day and common sense and responsibility shined on ANY polecats.

    Time to rebuild the GOP with TEA PARTY folks.

    BTW: IMO Mitt lost the election, BHO did not win.

    Failure to accept reality was the GOP problem. That and their candidates continually placing their foot in their mouth

    I do not care which side partakes the mandering of gerry; it's corruption and deliberately done to sway elections. Wrong is wrong
