Was allen west asked to leave the tea party?
Allan West, one very important tea party guest was ousted out of his Congressional seat, which he refuses to vacate. (As of 11/9/2012 Congressman Allan West had refused to concede). (According to the Associated Press)
Mr. West one of the most boisterous Congressman has spoken more than once, about how we should go "BACK" to the 'original Constitution.'
Makes one wonder if he ever read the Constitution. If he is even aware of the Three-fifths Compromise?
Per. Wikipedia: “The Three-fifths Compromise was a compromise between Southern and Northern States reached during the Philadelphia convention of 1787 in which three-fifths of the enumerated population of slaves would be counted for representation purposes regarding both the distribution of taxes and the apportionment of the members of the United States House of Representatives. It was proposed by delegates.
Delegates opposed to slavery generally wished to count only the free inhabitants of each state.
Delegates supportive of slavery, on the other hand, generally wanted to count slaves in their actual numbers. Since slaves could not vote, slaveholders would have the benefit of increased representation in the House and the Electoral College. The final compromise of counting “all other persons” as only three-fifths of their actual numbers reduced the power of the slave states relative to the original southern proposal, but increased it over the northern position.
The Three-Fifths Compromise is found in Article 1, Section 2, Paragraph 3 of the United States Constitution.” (Wikipedia.)

Did Mr. West drink to much at the Tea Party?
Mr. West wants to go back to the beginning of the constitution?
He would not have been allowed to vote and as a black man he would have been considered three-fifths of a human being.
Is he still beneficial to the “Tea Party” a division of the Grand Old Party?
Was he ever beneficial to the "Tea Party?" or just raised their head count by "1"?
What is the reason Patrick Murphy ran against Allen West?
It was strange that Allan West, a member of the Republican/Tea Party, lost his seat to a Democrat. Patrick Murphy who went from being a Republican and, Romney supporter to a Democrat and, it was because of the remarks Mr. West was saying on TV and in Congress, and also Mr. Murphy's disgust with the Tea Party philosophies that led to Mr. Murphy changing his party affiliation, albeit not to an ultra-liberal.
West lashes Out At Wasserman-Schultz In E-Mail.
But wait! Is the Tea Party taking its last gasps? Or, is it dead, at last? Let's hope so!
When election day came and Mr. Murphy was projected the winner, Mr. West demanded a recount.
Sunday, November 11, 2012, according to the Associated Press, a partial recount is underway, 'out of an abundance of caution.' according to election officials and although Patrick Murphy, still has more votes, the West's campaign is now calling the recount a sham.
And after the recount and, Mr. Murphy is declared the winner, the caustic Mr. West will not concede and, refuses to vacate his lost Congressional seat and threatens legal action.
(Do you think Allen West should be invited to the next Tea Party?)
Is the Tea Party losing its strength from being in the water to long?
One Tea Party darling, Congresswoman, Michele Bachmann of Minnesota who launched the Tea Party Caucus and, was also its chair as of July 16th, 2010 barely clung to her seat in the 2012 election. The election was so close, you could probably find broken finger nails imbedded in the bottom of her seat.
