ELECTION SHOCKER: REPUBLICAN COLIN POWELL ENDORSES DEMOCRAT BARACK OBAMA
Of course, if you find yourself voting in two straight elections for a Marxist statist out to “fundamentally transform” your country — and who has begun that process by increasing the size and scope of government, of welfare, of the debt and deficit, and the number of unemployed Americans — maybe it’s time to just do away with the fiction that you’re a Republican in the first place.
But then, I guess there are a lot of black Democrats to call on to do the talk shows. Seems to me somebody doesn’t want to surrender his niche as a go-to black Republican centrist — even though he’s long ago surrendered his principles, or at the very least, completely recalibrated them, stumping for a President who has violated the Constitution repeatedly and who speaks about his insistence on doing so should he be re-elected, at the expense of the separation of powers. Also, massive tax hikes. Because really, what says “principled Republican” more than backing a class warfare campaign that divides the country into Marxist classes and ends with the simultaneous gutting of our military and tax increases on nearly every segment of the population?
The funny thing is, Republicans long ago sent Colin Powell on his way. It’s only Democrats — who have agreed to honor Powell’s fiction that he’s a thoughtful, moderate Republican, just so long as he keeps pretending to be one when they call on him — who keep dragging him out everytime they need a black “Republican” to agree with some new line of progressive trajectory.
So. I’ll say it, because no one else will: like John McCain, I thank you for your service, General Powell. But now, like John McCain, please kindly fuck off. You sicken me to my very core.
