What a worthless idiot Powell is, Republicians have a problem? Of course he has no problem for voting for color which is what he has done, and still calls himself a Republican. He was a kiss assing officer and hasn't changed for one second.
If he wasn't light skined, but still black, and could speak English, and a ass kissing yes man, he never would have made it up rank ladder.

Is a good sign that people with experience within the GOP start realizing of their suicidal mistakes as a political force,it is about time that some of them start changing their mind before it is too late for their party..

I guess voting for a president just because he's black dosent make him racist?Powell is democrat,who does he think he's fooling,you vote for Obama twice and you call yourself a republican? the last part of that story is all I need to see. One last thing,if Obama thinks that granting 20-25 million illegal aliens amnesty is going to leave him a Lincoln level legacy he's sadly mistaking,what Lincoln did with his actions is teach us that no man/woman should be considered property,what obama is doing is letting us know that Americans are not worth protecting and sending a clear message to the world that this country is up for grabs.

Those are the consequences when you're tied into a global economy. Your boy Lincoln didn't free the slaves, because he felt sorry for them. He freed them, because slavery became costly and they were worth more as workers to a developing industrialized economy.

Your two bit jive rap, that stinks of right wing extremist sovereignty, is antiquated and has no future. Welcome to the new world of a developing North American alliance.

I had a teacher that said that Lincoln never really intended to free the slaves. We don't really know what was in his heart or his mind, but Lincoln's real intention in fighting in the Civil War appears to have been more about keeping the North and South united, and less about freeing the slaves. "My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it; and if I could do it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that." http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/USAlinco...

Actually about 5% of all military are foreign born and only citizens and legal permanent residents are allowed to enlist. Illegal aliens are not qualified because as we know they are not LEGAL PERMANENT RESIDENTS. If there are any illegal aliens in the military they are committing yet another crime. Of course any male illegal alien between 18 and 25 is required to register for the draft all though I have never heard of an illegal alien being charged with not registering for the draft. It is yet another law illegal aliens can break and get a free pass but American citizens cannot.

What's "la quebradita?" You know more about the Mexicans that I do. I guess when you hate someone or a group of people as much as you do, you get to know everything about them. In your case, it's another demonstration of your self hatred for being hispanic.
