Some folks simply have no business voting. Just as some people don’t need to be driving cars.

Does he think that a 12 year old should be turned loose on the roads?

The election is over.

Mr. Colon is just trying to finish nailing the coffin of the GOPe like a good leftist Statist.

Mr. Colon needs to be called out daily until he crawls under his rock.

Is it a “limit on voter participation” to demand that each voter be actually eligible and only vote once?

The DNC is committed to voter fraud like a sacrament.

I can’t think of any country where voters don’t identify themselves and prove their identity aside from this one.

If Repubs can’t at the very least stand strong and demand clean elections then they have no further reason to exist.

Powell says the Republican Party has turned much more conservative. “That’s perfectly acceptable, but if you stay that far to the right, you’re losing where the country is. “The country is moving more toward the center.”


Uhm... no,,, BOTH the Left AND the right have shifted MILES to the LEFT.

Republicans want voter ID to make sure that everybody has a fair chance to vote for whom they choose. They also favor vote observers at polling places so we don’t get the obviously fraudulent 100% from various Democrat vote counters like we had in Philadelphia in this last election. When Democrats cheat and vote more than once, or cheat and count votes against their guy as votes cast for him, then THAT is what suppresses the vote. Also I might expect an army officer who is supposedly Republican to be a little more sensitive to the lost and mishandled ballots for our overseas servicemen...who largely vote Republican....but go figure.

In colonial America in 1776, 74% of the populace favored tyranny under king George, while 26% of the populace favored independence.

Powell would be best reminded that we are an elected republic, not mob rule.

Our armed forces succeed only because the 10% tell the other 90% what to do when they wake, what to eat, where to sleep again, and who the enemy is to be.

Powell is developing dementia.

Mr. Colon can see the handwriting on the wall that the GOP is about to go the way of the Whigs. Ergo he is positioning himself for his next decade of meal tickets.

It's the right thing to do.

I was really disappointed with GWB that he didn’t do anything in the wake of all the FL shenanigans in 2000, especially since the Dems were obviously working to disenfranchise military voters by challenging their absentee ballots.

If we ever get the White House back, election fraud clean up needs to be a national Republican priority. Until then, everyone needs to push it at the state level.

If the president himself does not have to be eligible then why do voters have to be eligible? Heck we have open borders and dems want a blank check with no debt ceiling. Anything goes. Get with the times. :-).

It sounds funny now, but there was a time when Colin Powell could have had the GOP presidential nomination almost for the asking. VP for sure.

Since the Scooter Libby ordeal, when he let the man be crucified all the time knowing the truth, when one word from him would have spared the man... he lost his honor and I don’t think he can ever get it back.

“The Republican Party should be a party that says, ‘We want everybody to vote,’ and make it easier to vote and give them a reason to vote for the party, not to find ways to keep them from voting at all.”

We do want everyone who is ELIGIBLE, to vote. What we don't want are folks voting who are not citizens, or who are convicted felons, or who are trying to cheat by voting multiple times.

Colin Powell,

Thou hast repeatedly aligned with Marxists and Communists.

I care not what titles thou hast carried.

I care not what deeds thou hast performed.

Thou hast betrayed thy countrymen for the last time!

I DUB THEE TRAITOR!

May God have mercy on thy soul.

Remind me again.

When did the repubs ever attempt to deter those voters who are actually authorized to vote in a U.S. election from voting???

Did I miss something?

I mean, did the repubs load a bunch of rednecks in pickup trucks and then go around with their illegal magazines loaded to the gills with hollow point bullets to different polling places and then actually chase ANY voters away from the voting booth?

The irony of this is amazing. If Powell had been a midlevel officer when the democrats were in power he would have retired as an O-5 or O-6. Thanks to the repubs, he leapfrogged over 250 senior officers to gain the platform that he now pontificates from.

Colin, you are retired. Enjoy your sunset years, and keep your racist views to yourself.

...the Republican Party should abandon its efforts to curb voter participation through voter ID laws and restrictions on hours for early voting.

Early voting is one of the keys to modern Democratic party success. During the long early voting period they can round up every possible voter and deliver them to the polls, generating a turnout much higher than they would get on election day. And they can use early voting statistics and responses to telephone polls to determine if their propaganda is working.

We all know why Democrats are opposed to voter ID laws, since supposedly needing an ID impinges on your constitutional right to vote. Of course they never make the argument that needing an ID to purchase a firearm also impinges on your constitutional rights. So they really just want to enable anonymous voting.

Hey Colon,

The only way the GOP lowered voter participation was by nominating ANOTHER RINO.

Excuse me, but what are you even doing in this party??? You’re a DEMOCRAT.
