He quacks, walks and talks like someone who doesn’t subscribe to republican ideals – this makes him an expert on how the Republican Party should behave? What is it about Colin Powell that leads him to declare himself a Republican? Is it possible he is ignorant of American history? Possibly.
One of the most illustrious Republicans ever in our exceptional country was Frederick Douglass, born into slavery, orator, abolitionist, statesman, trusted advisor to Abraham Lincoln and free-market entrepreneur who amassed a fortune equivalent in today’s money to twenty-five million dollars.
