Allen West's final weekly newsletter faces the Truth-O-Meter

The first week of December in Congress was dominated by news about the fiscal cliff. So you will forgive us if we overlooked this other tidbit tucked into the final weekly newsletter sent by U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Palm Beach Gardens.

"This week we voted in the House of Representatives to remove the word ‘lunatic’ from federal law," wrote West, who lost a close race to Democrat Patrick Murphy in District 18 in Florida’s Treasure Coast. "However, that does not mean there isn't plenty of lunacy going on in the workings of the federal government!"

We can’t fact-check the amount of lunacy in Washington, D.C., but we couldn’t resist looking into whether the House actually voted to remove the word "lunatic" from federal law. Read PolitiFact for the full story.

YOU MAY HAVE THE LOST THIS ELECTION; HOWEVER DON'T LOSE FAITH. YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK AND WE NEED MORE MEN LIKE YOU WHO ARE NOT AFRAID TO FACE THE FACT OF HOW OUR BELOVED COUNTRY IS SEEMINGLY LOSING THE BATTLE AGAINST THE WILD EYED LIBERALS. KEEP FIGHTING. I THINK YOU ARE POSSIBLY THE NEXT GEN. GEORGE PATTON.

We probably should look into reinstituting Compulsory Draft of all eligible youth who can serve our country for 2 - 3 years. That should serve in teaching them what it means to be an American and probably would serve to get rid of the wild-eyed Liberals who would scoot off to Canada.
