Let’s Remember When Colin Powell Predicted The GOP’s Racist Demise (VIDEO)
Former Secretary of State and U.S. Army General Colin Powell is a staunch Republican, but he represents a brand of conservatism which focuses on fiscal responsibility and a conservative approach to foreign policy.

“The [GOP] has taken a sharp turn to the right. For example, I am a Republican of course… principally because of my background, my feelings about foreign policy and defense spending and things like that, but I’m very moderate with respect to social issues. But I’ve found increasingly over the last 10 or 15 years, the party has moved further away from somebody like me.”
