Powell may still be registered as a Republican, but I doubt he has voted for a Republican not named "Bloomberg" in nearly a decade.
IIRC, he lives in New York, and has never said a word against Chuck Schumer.
He remains an R only to go on TV and bash them.
He says he's an R, I believe him. His comments about the direction the teabaggers have taken the party aren't being made in a vacuum.

Some people just don't like hearing the truth about why they lost the election, no matter who's telling it.

Powell is just another affirmative action socialist scumbag voting republican in primaries for the weakest candidate on the command of his puppet masters. When he came out for puffy the muslim peter eater this last election he finally showed his true following.

You're surely more accomplished than Colin Powell.

And more cultured.

I think the system is inefficient. I don't find capital punishment immoral because it is about the protection of society from the dangerous, so it is ideally self-defense.
Since it takes 30 years to actually execute someone, it's mostly useless, I would prefer a "gulag" system of life without parole.
Executions would be restricted to treason, piracy and war crimes.
Well here's one area that I think we may find agreement on and to be honest, after reading your views, you're helped mine evolve a little more.

If the only way to win is to piss on our beliefs, what's the point of winning.
The majority wants a left wing government, and I will enjoy their suffering.
A big part of what Powell was suggesting this morning was to stop pissing on black people. Are those your beliefs?

Most blacks want an activist government. The GOP doesn't.
If the GOP becomes a liberal party, there is no point in holding elections anymore.
Blacks piss on themselves when they abort the future. Powell hates the right in part because it is pro-life.
Don't kid yourself or try to fool anyone else, the GOP indeed wants an activist government and judges. To put it more precisely, they're looking to do a lot of deactivating in some areas and a lot of activating in others. It's just things you agree with so you don't think it's activism. The problem is, the Republicans want in your life and finances as much as you claim the Democrats do.

Republicans lie (pathologically I might add) because they have no place to stand.

They are lost and have no moral compass to find their way back.

The current state of the Grand Old Party is nothing but REVULSION.

OMG ! The race card again? I am so sick of hearing about the 'black suppression.' Both parties and the country have turned themselves inside out for the blacks and it's still not enough. It will never be enough.

How 'bout we just move all white Americans to states with the worse weather and economic conditions and give the blacks run of the rest of the country and 99% of the tax revenue. Will that be enough?

Using the race card in 2013 is an act of ignorance and desperation.

The GOP is floundering because the country is no longer made up of individuals with any moral compass or pride and they can't figure out where or how they fit in.

For the most part, the dems can't run a clock, let alone a country. But they know that approving abortion, gay marriage, entitlements and more legal immigration will get them a larger voting base so that's what they do.

I wouldn't point out repubs as liars with the amount of careers hanging in the balance over the lies and cover ups of Benghazi, starting with Obama.

And the dem president before him? Oh, yeah, Bill Clinton. He didn't lie much, did he?

He was trying to explain to the Republican Party why they are becoming a part with no relevance. It is devilishly difficult to claim that you are reaching out to blacks while using racial slurs on a pretty regular basis.

Someone else might have made the same case about their difficulty in expanding their base among women when they go around talking about (and attempting to base policy on) the notion of "legitimate rape," particularly when tagging on the fiction that such legitimate rape cannot result in pregnancy--or that if it does, women are just missing out on the gift from God aspect.

He wasn't talking about black oppression. He was talking about Republican cluelessness.

This thread is so funny. It starts with a completely unintelligent rant concerning a premise that only exists in the brainwashed minds of true idiots due to a refusal to consider contexts or even the entire truth and is argued throughout the extremes by the same polar opposite. It's the ultimate troll piece if I ever found one.
I think I like this site.

Its about common sense, not about "playing a race card" at all.

If you want somebody's vote, you don't run your campaign on a platform that scapegoats all of the country's problems upon the poor, many of whom also just so happen to be black.

In other words, the idea is to get a permanent left wing majority. Then the redistribution really starts.
Karl, contrary to your mistaken belief, this is a Nation of immigrants, not white people.

immigrants used to be welcome when they came here to be Americans. I don't suppose you would understand why they might not be welcome any more. Of course this redistribution is a relatively new concept that has gained traction only after the failed communist overthrow of the US and the bad name Hitler gave it was long forgotten.

The degree of welcome for immigrants has ebbed and flowed over time. This is not the first time that American has exhibited profound xenophobic tendancies. Many, if not most, immigrant groups have experienced profound discrimination--despite their labor contributions which have generally been considerable.

The anti-Islam sentiment popular today merely echoes anti-Semitic sentiment of a scant few generations back. Fear of political infiltration likewise has forerunners in earlier generations fear of anarchists, trade unionists, socialists, communists and a variety of others.

In fact "redistribution" as you call it, is really just a return to post WWII values of placing greater responsibility on those who have benefitted most from our society and economy and aiming for a strong middle class supported by public education and fair labor practices.

Redistribution is how it is termed, not how I put it. If you do not like the term, I suggest you look at what it entailed before suggesting it is the wording of a fringe set of people.

There has always been a greater burden on those who benefited most from our society and economy. Outside of social security which FDR knew was unconstitutional before he ever became president and was billed as you getting back what you were forced to pay in so wasn't really redistribution, the concept of redistribution came about in practice well after WWII. In fact, it wasn't until the 70's for the most part that the US started practicing it large scale. It largely came about in the 1968 civil rights legislation where the good democrats decided the way to ensure peace, opportunity, and equality was to create high rise apartments all the way over on the other side of town and put the negros in those projects free of charge, provide for their well being and modest medical. This didn't kick in strong until after the 70's. Unfortunately, instead of most of America looking and saying what the fuck, they observed and said, I want mine too.

So unless you consider a quarter century and two wars later to be right after a war happened, you might want to revisit that patch of history.
