What makes Colin Powell a ‘great Republican’.

Exactly. I laugh when people talk about “conservatives” ruining the economy. I guess the republicans are conservative when compared to someone like Marx, but not in the grand scheme of things.

It is liberal policies supported by Democrats and Republicans that are killing this country. The last 8 years were a perfect example of a Republican administration spending like a Democratic one and I do not mean the war.
If JFK could be brought back from the dead he would immediately pull Teddy into a private room, grab him by the shirt and demand to know what the hell happened to his party.
What used to be considered liberal in this country would today be decidedly right of center and many of the alleged conservatives are now decidedly left of what was considered liberal just 40 years ago. We are being slowly conditioned to view any thoroughly American position as being right wing extremist lunacy when in reality even in my lifetime they were once the mainstream middle.
We are being successfully eroded away from the inside out and our enemies are watching in derisive scorn as we do to ourselves what they haven’t thus far been able to. It’s heartbreaking watching the country I love commit national suicide.
