When I was a Democrat, I disliked Colin Powell because he was a sellout to the Republican party. How could any self respecting Black man be a Republican? It just didn’t make sense. Now that I am a Republican I don’t like him because he has sold out the Republican party. I guess Mr. Powell will always tick me off and be on my list of enemies. Chris Strohm of Congress Daily, recently wrote a piece on Colin Powell and this is what Colin Powell had to say:
“The Republican Party is in deep trouble,” Powell told corporate security executives at a conference in Washington sponsored by Fortify Software Inc. The party must realize that the country has changed, he said. “Americans do want to pay taxes for services,” he said. “Americans are looking for more government in their life, not less.
Okay when did Colin Powell get his lobotomy and why weren’t we told? Are you kidding me? What American gets up in the morning and goes, “Isn’t it great I get to work 40 hours a week and at the end of it I get to give most of it to the government, the wonderful government that I want more of in my life not less, how lucky am I?” First of all a willingness to pay taxes for services like schools, roads, and other necessities does not meant they want to do it. I am willing to do dishes because I want clean dishes to eat my food off of, it does not mean I want to do dishes! But regardless of how I feel about dishes, it is necessary and it has to be done. That is how most people feel about taxes. It is necessary for a society to function but that should in no way constitute them as “wanting to pay taxes for services.”And it sure doesn’t mean they want to pay more in taxes. Did Mr. Powell simply ignore the Tea Party!? Isn’t that what it was all about getting the government out of our wallets and out of our lives!? I would like to ask Mr. Powell, what are you smoking and can I have some? It is obviously some good stuff if it can make you forget that a million people came out April 15th to protest everything you say they want!
Now let’s look at the second part of this heresy. Americans want more government in their lives, not less. As someone who has had the government so far up their backside that they could’ve given me a colonic, I can personally vouch that Americans don’t want more government in their lives. What do pro-choicers say? Keep the government out of my womb! Keep your laws off my body. They are always talking about government intruding on decisions like abortion, euthanasia, the death penalty, etc. Now they want the state to kill babies and grandmas just not rapists and axe murderers, they should live! So even the radical, liberal Dems who hate all that is good and holy definitely don’t want more government in their lives. How about the Libertarians, they think we should decriminalize everything and just have great big party with porn and pot for all! They don’t sound like they want more government in their lives. So who are these Americans who want more government in their lives? Because I surely don’t know any?
Do you want to pay taxes for services? How about services like abortion, or paying teachers NOT to teach? Do you want to have a say in where your taxes go or do you just think you should hand over the money and the wonderful government can decide from there on out? Do you want government more in your life, not less? Maybe I am mistaken, maybe Americans are a bunch of imbeciles who can’t decide what to do with their own money and who want Big Brother to make every life decision for them. But I doubt it. Americans are not dolts who don’t know up from down. They are intelligent, efficient and a hard working bunch and how dare Colin Powell say such blatant lies. I hope you will make it clear to Colin Powell that his views in no way represent true Americans, that we are not weak-kneed socialists waiting on the government to solve our every problem and that we are far more capable than what he gives us credit for.
Really, Colin please join Arlen with the Democrats and I am sure they will treat you with the same respect they gave him. Which in my mind would be poetic justice. It is time we tell these RINOs that anyone who doesn’t agree with the GOP platform can take a hike. That if you don’t like it that there are other parties out there you can join, but at the crux of it is limited government and lower taxes and if you can’t wrap your mind around that, if you don’t believe that-fine, go elsewhere! But don’t try to change the GOP to suit your own individual agenda. It is one thing to bring new blood into the GOP, it is quite another to sabotage it and that is what Colin is trying to do-sabotage everything we stand for.
