Colin Powell, the most overrated underperformer in recent political history, once again showed himself to be the opportunistic self aggrandizer he's been throughout his career.
The so-called "moderate Republican" who shamelessly endorsed the candidacy of Barack Obama, the man who is leading us towards a socialist-statist debacle that would make George Orwell apopletic, once again demonstrated that he is the cheerleader for the Democratic political class.
In a recent speech to corporate security executives, Powell proclaimed haughtily "the American people want MORE government, not LESS."
Mr. Powell apparently missed the 1 million Americans who demonstrated against more government at the April 15 Tax Day Tea Parties.
Time to leave the Republican Party officially, Mr. Powell.
We don't need socialist-statists like you in the party.
President Obama and his friends will be sure to welcome you with open arms. Why not ? You've been espousing the same anti free market policies for years.
You belong with the elite political class that controls the Democratic Party, those 30 percent of Democrats who believe in socialism, not capitalism.
Joseph Schumpeter predicted the arch of your career 70 years ago. Do the right thing and make it official now.
