Funny. I see arrows. Maybe I'm just seeing things.

That's true, but still they got issues if they can't tell where to punch a simple button.

Please. Powell would have done way better than McCain in the primaries. In fact, he could probably have ran on the Democratic ticket. Powell appeals to both sides of the isle because he's in truth a moderate Democrat, but he's in the Republican Party because his strong views on foreign policy and military advancement, something the Democrats are weak on. Other than that, he would have beaten Gore and Bush easily. Only Clinton would have stood a chance to beat him back in 96, but now Clinton doesn't stand a chance. You'll hear a louder call for him to run in 08 if Bush wins this year.

Powell wouldn't have to. He'd take a decent percentage of the South because the South is moving Republican as the days go by. There is no doubt he'll take a high percentage of the black vote. War heroes and military men have always done well in presidential races, and although the primaries might give Powell a little trouble in the South, I wouldn't expect it to anywhere else.

Better than New York. They just got pimped for their vote.

Sure. I'm heading to the mirror now.

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship." - Alexander Tyler

"In general the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one class of citizens to give to the other." -Voltaire

"The assumption that spending more of the taxpayer's money will make things better has survived all kinds of evidence that it has made things worse. The black family- which survived slavery, discrimination, poverty, wars and depressions- began to come apart as the federal government moved in with its well-financed programs to "help." - Thomas Sowell

"Life is insensitive, and the truth can be highly offensive. To hide from either is to hide from the reality of life. Take pride in the fact that I am an equal opportunity offender. You today, someone else tomorrow. You have no constitutional right not to be offended." - Neal Boortz

Some of you still think America's a
democracy. Lemme break it down for

* Democracy:  Three wolves and a sheep
vote on the dinner menu.
* Democratically Elected Republic: Three
wolves and 2 sheep vote on which sheep's
for dinner. 
* Constitutional Republic: The eating of
mutton is forbidden by law, and the
sheep are armed.

The United States is a CONSTITUTIONAL
REPUBLIC. Not a democracy.

Yes....I am a PROUD Black Libertarian Conservative.
