Allen West Statement “We Should Only Redouble Our Resolve”

For two weeks since Election Day, we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly. We have made progress towards that goal, thanks to the dedication of our supporters and their unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity of the democratic process. While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.

While there are certainly still inaccuracies in the results and the actions of the St. Lucie County and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections rightly raise questions in my mind and for many voters, after much analysis and yesterday’s recount in St. Lucie County, our legal team does not believe there are enough over-counted, undercounted or fraudulent votes to change the outcome of the election.

While a contest of the election results might have changed the vote totals, we do not have evidence that the outcome would change. Given the extremely high evidentiary hurdles involved in a successful challenge, I will not ask my generous supporters to help fund a drawn-out, expensive legal effort with little chance of success. Therefore, we will not contest the certification or challenge the seating of Congressman-Elect Murphy.

Serving the people in the House of Representatives has been among the highest honors of my life, but this seat does not belong to me, or for that matter, to any individual. It belongs to the people. I want to congratulate my opponent, Patrick Murphy, as the new Congressman from 18th Congressional District. I pray he will serve his constituents with honor and integrity, and put the interests of our nation before his own.

I must thank my wife Angela, and my daughters Aubrey and Austen for their support, patience, understanding and most of all, love. These are three of the toughest women I know. They have sent me off to defend our nation overseas at war and to Capitol Hill to serve our nation in the House of Representatives. They have all handled the challenges of these last few months, and the last many years, with amazing grace. I know they will be my side for whatever is our next chapter.

I must also thank my congressional and campaign staff for their service, and most importantly, I must thank you and our other tremendous supporters who provided their time and money to power our campaign. I am humbled by the dedication and perseverance of our supporters, and their commitment to a free and prosperous America. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for our campaign, but most importantly, what they have done, and will continue to do for our country. None of us should let the outcome discourage us. We should only redouble our resolve.

Above all, I want to thank God for his blessings, and for blessing me with the opportunity to serve.

Only God knows what is in store for each of us. I have dedicated my life to serving this nation, and the results of this election will not change my purpose. Just as I did in the deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan, just as I did on Capitol Hill, I will continue to fight for our Republic.

Our nation will not overcome our challenges overnight ,and the road ahead for each one of us will not be easy. But this nation would never have become that shining beacon of light if our founders had chosen the easy path 236 years ago. We all must proudly continue their legacy.

God bless you and God bless these United States of America.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen B. West

  1. There is no other man alive or dead that I have more respect for than Allen West. I pray that one day I will have the opportunity to vot for him as president of the United States. But if we can’t find a way to restore the integrity of our election system that has allowed the last two presidential elections to be stolen by the ursurper to the presidency, Barack Obama.

  2. Hello, I understand you are trying to be noble. But, I voted Republican in Ma. And there was 129 percent turnout in Boston. Which means, Democrats do a lot of stuff to make sure my Republican vote doesn’t count. Can’t you sue this woman, for violating my voting rights? I mean, it is no different than preventing me from voting. If you were in my disctrict, I would vote for you. I just feel like Republicans’s arent addressing voter fraud, and it is even worse than it was when McCain ran. He was trying to be noble too. It is demoralizing when you guys don’t fight, when you are so busy being nice. Democrats never are nice, they don’t compromise, they lie and cheat to their own ends. Maybe we need to be hardasses too, for a change.

  3. Absolutely – this is just the beginning. We have a 2 front war, well, maybe 3. Of course, we can not do this all ourselves. So, that means we are going to have to work on changing values or reminding those of their values and get them back in touch with their churches, etc. Without the Father, this is not possible. I do not think that He will allow only a small group to “save the day.” Penance, of course, worship and praise, yes. We are going to need to be examples – as you have done. I have a lot of work to do there. I will have to open up my International Selling again and see if I can choose to sell only a few items as opposed to everything. It is very tedious. I will be using my Ebay ads to sell much more than what I advertise. It is a large audience and I expect to be shut down, but I will do it as long as I can get away with it. I put a cross the other night, but the sale was not really about the cross. I think some kind of inoculation is in order for all Christians. There are so many in fear and depression. This can stop everybody from doing anything. We need working hands and open hearts. It took some time before to do this – it is cheerleader time again where I get to go to website after website spreading “peace and yes, probably joy.” We really need some creative and fun rebellion. I remind them of the period of the 60’s – “Keep the Faith Baby” or “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” If I have told this before, I apologize as I do say some of the same things to others. That was a turbulent time that we came out of then. We have to give them a “common enemy – like poverty, tax hikes, etc. something that is already being done by our leader.”

    2nd Front – Corruption via Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and now, probably Kerry. We will need those that know the Truth to step forward. I now there are people that want to. We need to find them – perhaps on the White House Facebook. I also think, it just might be possible to reach Hillary and even Bill – not sure about that, but if they were brought up in a Christian environment, we should be able to get through to them. I think for the above group, we need to make them just as uncomfortable as can possibly be – apply pressure, court cases – anything they are required to respond to. Keep them so busy that they can’t pay attention. Haunt them like ghosts. At some point, hopefully there will be plenty to “march on Washington.”

    3rd Front – Media and PR. I have seen some indication that some in the media are rethinking their position. They need to be challenged, and they then to be singled out when they write something that is untrue or misleading.

    Anyway, you were in the military. I am sure you too will find your own, best method of battle. I have the problem that I need to assist in supporting us financially. My husband got laid off after 37 years in the aircraft industry. That is why we sell on Ebay. So, I have to split my time and maybe that is just the exactly the way it is suppose to be. Anyway, back to work. FYI – My Dad finally came around to my way of thinking – he is a bit of a power source as well. He loves to take on corruption and justice. We is quite effective at writing letters too. My whole family will be bound to this before it is over, and I do have a large extended family.


  5. Why was the headline on FOX NATION “West Surrenders, Concedes Re-election Bid”?????? Why is the mainstream media spinning this VOTER FRAUD and ignoring the TRUTH????

    I just looked outside and the AMERICAN FLAG is still waving in the breeze! NO Surrender to sOcialism EVER!!!!, I didnt hear the Colnel ever say “I giv up” or I surrender”!!! Keep fighting Alan, we need you!!!

  6. This has been a devastating blow. To see such a fine patriot subjected to the tirade of liberal insanity and witch hunts, to see in the end, that the same fiends accomplished this is just too much.

    Congressman West, thank you for you invaluable service to our nation, on foreign fields and at home. I know we will see you again, but you will be so greatly missed.

    What has happened here speaks to the sad state of affairs this country has come to. I have always been thankful for your leadership. I am not in your district, and could not support you with my vote because of this, but there is no other I would rather see in the White House, and I will damn sure pull out all the stops to see you in the Florida senate.

    Bless you and your family sir, you are not, and will never be forgotten. And I know I am not the only one outside of your district who will support you, millions will.

    • We just have to try a different angle. My objective right now is force him to show his hand before he is ready – got to get this plans “messed up.” You know I can reach a lot of people through Ebay. You wait, he is going to try to convince Ebay that sellers cannot add any commentary – political, or religious, etc. That won’t go over good. Today, it was the Life Magazine Cover with the Sailor kissing the Nurse as they had just heard that Japan surrendered. It was a short walk from 1945 to the earlier years when a charismatic man stepped up and convinced the Germans of their superior race. The Country had been in a long period of recession – just a little history lesson about ignoring words and watching actions. And then one all about Christmas. And, I have a woman I need to get in touch with as I think she want to put some of my items up overseas – would love to see those Freedom shirts around.
      Lots of luck to you. If you ever need me for anything, please do not be afraid to ask. We are on the same team and this battle we all fight together.
      We will win – that war has already been won. Now, it reminds me of clean-up time.

  7. What do these deplorable actions taken against a true Patriot that honorably and unselfishly served his country say about our Country/Republic?
    As a retired Marine Corps Mustang Officer, I salute Congressman Allen West and thank him for his unwavering service to our country.
    I wish I could say that these disgraceful actions were limited to Florida, but they were ramped across the country as documented in my following blog post:
    Vote Fraud – What They Aren’t Telling You!
    May God Bless Congressman Allen West and his family.
    God Bless America!
    Semper Fi!
