Cheyanne's Campsite ...Where The Money Meets The Rubber of The Spirited Road in America Today !!: First It Was Colonel Larry Wilkerson Who Had The Courage, Audacity, and Balls To Publicly Say That Some of The Republican Party Of Today Are Racists. ***Now, Colin Powell Is Publicly Proclaiming The Same Sort Of Thing By Saying ""I want to see policies that encourage every American to vote, not make it more difficult to vote," said Powell, a Republican, at the CEO Forum in Raleigh "It immediately turns off a voting block the Republican Party needs," "These kinds of actions do not build on the base. It just turns people away."
