It is always the interest of a far greater part of the nation to have a thing right than to have it wrong; and therefore, in a country whose government is founded on the system of election and representation, the fate of every party is decided by its principles.
As this system is the only form and principle of government by which liberty can be preserved, and the only one that can embrace all the varieties of a great extent of country, it necessarily follows, that to have the representation real, the election must be real; and that where the election is a fiction, the representation is a fiction also. Like will always produce like.

that celebrates the "easy-money" life-style supported by criminal fraud.
The former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, from the first administration of the twice-unelected president George W. Bush (2001-2005), has openly endorsed the Democratic party's presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Powell's endorsement of Obama, a puppet of the Israeli Rahm Emanuel, has less to do with Obama's African roots than it does with getting Emanuel and his Zionist gangsters back into control of the Oval Office. Emanuel, the real boss of the Democratic party is the son of a real Israeli terrorist (Irgun) and thug-in-chief of the party.
Once again, it's election showtime in America, where citizens are not allowed to count, or even observe the counting, of their votes as they exercise their "democratic" franchise. Elections in America are events driven by the controlled media and the pollsters, such as Andrew Kohut, who said that U.S. public opinion was split 50-50 on the $700 billion bailout of Zionist fraudsters, while U.S. senators such as Diane Feinstein of the Golden State of California reported public opinion 1,000 to 1 against the "bail-out."
Could Andrew be related to the Elder of Zion and founder of B'nai B'rith, rabbi Alexander Kohut? How could his results be so different from those recorded at Sen. Feinstein's office? Pollster Kohut reveals nothing about his own parents while he polls ours!
(The processing or "counting" of nearly all U.S. ballots does not involve any actual counting by a human being. Nearly every ballot cast in the U.S.A. is secretly processed by a secretive privately-owned voting "systems" companies such as Sequoia, ES&S, and Diebold. The computer "superuser" controls the output. There is no longer any real and meaningful democratic franchise in America.)
Candidate Obama is controlled by Rahm Emanuel,
an Israeli son-of-a-terrorist (Heb. "ben zonah") and Zionist extremist.
Dreaming of change in America? Don't bank on it.
Powell is mostly remembered for his prominent role in the disgraceful lying of the Bush administration to the American people and the "international community" at the United Nations. Powell's utterly fraudulent litany of false evidence and fabrications were carefully constructed lies promoted to permit the United States to commence an illegal "war of aggression" against Iraq with the goal of occupying the oil-rich nation.
Powell has shown himself to be a liar and war criminal of the worst kind. Why would any candidate welcome an endorsement from a war criminal? Are Obama and Powell brothers in arms?
The week before endorsing Obama, Powell eased, rather oddly, back into the media limelight by taking the stage in London on October 14 to sing and dance along with "Yahoozee," a Nigerian hit celebrating the "easy-money lifestyle of women, cars and alcohol," according to the BBC. Powell performed with "Olu Maintain" (a.k.a. Olumide Edwards Adegbolu), the Nigerian singer, during the "Africa Rising" event.
"Yahoozee," the song that Powell performed to, celebrates the criminal lifestyle of Nigeria's gangsters who enrich themselves by stealing money through Internet fraud. Olu Maintain's smash hit, according to the BBC, is about "Nigeria's notorious Internet fraudsters" making easy money off their victims in the United States.
Powell evidently has no qualms about lying to and defrauding Americans - and the rest of the world. He clearly enjoyed performing the Nigerian song about the ill-gotten gains made by crime, which seems appropriate for a member of the criminal cabal that conspired in waging two wars of aggression against Iraq.
Is Powell on Prozac -- or is he just having fun?
The BBC's correspondent in Nigeria said the song is accompanied by a dance move popular in Nigerian clubs that involves hand movements that represent stacking up wads of dollar bills. Powell, son of poor immigrants, has certainly stacked up a few dollars through criminality.
"Some people came into the world to work, some people came into the world to live large," the song says. Powell, the son of Jamaican immigrants in New York City, is certainly living large for a known war criminal. Suspected war criminals are usually forced to live quiet lives in seclusion. Powell's appearance and subsequent endorsement was, of course, all carefully planned in advance.
In a just world Powell would be put on trial for his involvement in serious war crimes vis-a-vis Iraq. Powell's involvement in the criminal conspiracy to commit aggression against Iraq began in 1989. The evidence indicates that Powell then began to conspire in the commission of a "crime against peace," the most serious war crime, per the Nuremberg Charter.
"I stand before you tonight as an African-American," Powell told the audience. "Many people have said to me you became secretary of state of the USA, is it still necessary to say that you are an African-American or that you are black, and I say, yes, so that we can remind our children." Unlike Obama, Powell's Jamaican ancestors were slaves traded in the West Indies by Jewish slave merchants. Whether he understands it or not, he is still serving the same families and interests who put his ancestors into chains.
We should remind our children that Colin Powell has long played a role in the commission and cover-up of serious war crimes, going back to his involvement in Viet Nam in the early 1960s through his role in the conspiracies to commit a war of aggression against Iraq in 1989 and 2003.
Powell was responsible for investigating alleged war crimes described in a letter written by an American soldier to General Creighton Abrams. The letter documented actions by U.S. soldiers in Viet Nam in 1968. Powell, then a 31-year-old Army Major, was charged with investigating the allegations contained in the letter written by Tom Glen, a 21-year-old soldier of the 11th Light Infantry Brigade.
In his report Powell wrote: "In direct refutation of this portrayal is the fact that relations between American soldiers and the Vietnamese people are excellent."
Yes, Mr. Powell, we all know that relations between American soldiers and the Vietnamese people were "excellent" in 1968.
From 1989 through 2005, Powell was personally engaged in the commission of the most serious war crime, i.e. a Crime against Peace. As the Nuremberg Charter defines it, Powell engaged in a Crime against Peace in his involvement in the "planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression."
As Ramsey Clark wrote in War Crimes: A Report on United States War Crimes Against Iraq:
The United States engaged in a pattern of conduct beginning in or before 1989 intended to lead Iraq into provocations justifying U.S. military action against Iraq and permanent U.S. military domination of the Gulf.
In 1989, General Colin Powell, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and General Norman Schwarzkopf, Commander in Chief of the Central Command, completely revised U.S. military operations and plans for the Persian Gulf to prepare to intervene in a regional conflict against Iraq. The CIA assisted and directed Kuwait in its actions. At the time, Kuwait was violating OPEC oil production agreements, extracting excessive amounts of oil from pools shared with Iraq and demanding repayment of loans it made to Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war. Kuwait broke off negotiations with Iraq over these disputes. The U.S. intended to provoke Iraq into actions against Kuwait that would justify U.S. intervention.
In February 2003, Powell willingly lied to the American people and the entire world in the UN Security Council about alleged Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. Powell was part of the cabal who conspired to wage a war of aggression, which the war in Iraq clearly is. Among other things, Powell told the world:
"Saddam Hussein is determined to get his hands on a nuclear bomb."
"There can be no doubt that Saddam Hussein has biological weapons and the capability to rapidly produce more, many more. And he has the ability to dispense these lethal poisons and diseases in ways that can cause massive death and destruction."
"People will continue to debate this issue, but there is no doubt in my mind. These illicit procurement efforts show that Saddam Hussein is very much focused on putting in place the key missing piece from his nuclear weapons program, the ability to produce fissile material."
These were all blatant lies and fabrications, which Powell and the Bush administration knew to be false. I explained the evidence contradicting these lies in my articles at the time. Powell willingly lied to the American public and the world for one reason -- in order to begin an illegal war of aggression against Iraq.
The rest is history: hundreds of thousands of Iraqi and American lives lost or destroyed and untold billions of dollars wasted. America has been literally bankrupted -- morally and financially.
In September 2005, during an interview with Barbara Walters, Powell said his UN speech was a "blot" on his record. He went on to say, "It will always be a part of my record. It was painful. It's painful now."
After endorsing Obama, Powell said he is looking forward to 2009. As if we should all forget the hell he helped bring on our heads and nation.
We will never forget that Powell is more than a ridiculous figure -- he is a war criminal, who along with the others in the Bush administration must be brought to justice. The pain he suffers is the pain of having committed many wrongful killings without being punished. Prozac won't help.
Millions of people have suffered real pain, suffering, and death as a consequence of the illegal wars of aggression Powell was involved in starting and waging.
Let Obama explain that.
