Mark J. Powell: A Leader for America

PLEASE VISIT for the latest news about Pastor Mark and the Christian Democratic Movement in the Democratic Party.   

Watch the Afternoon Chat with Pastor Mark Powell on FACEBOOK LIVE in the 5pm hour.

Thank you to the nearly 10,000 people that voted for me to represent them in the United States House of Representatives and advocate the  OUR FAIR SHARE program!!!

It was an honor to run and speak for those of us in the Middle Class. Sadly in American politics, coming in 2nd in a 5 candidate field doesn't even get one a Silver medal. Our message of fairness for the Middle Class and Working Poor will be even more relevant in 24 months.   

I will continue to advocate  values of fairness for the Middle Class and Working Poor. I will also advocate for a return to the principles of our Constitution and the removal of Marxist organizations that the established party leadership has allowed to enter under their watch. Marxist groups like Black Lives Matter and the Democratic Socialists of America have not place in a major American political party. 
God bless America.

"Our    Fair    Share"

Why did this Middle Class guy who happens to be a Protestant minister run in the 2020 Democratic Congressional primary? 

A lot of reasons, DEBT RELIEF for the Middle Class and recent college graduates....if the Wall Street Banksters can get Trillions, the Middle Class must receive OUR FAIR SHARE , how about access to Congressional Health Insurance...if Pelosi and McConnell get the best the Middle Class must receive OUR FAIR SHARE!!! 

America must have affordable post secondary education. Rhode Island has a wonderful statewide program and we need to make community colleges free and third and fourth year studies affordable to finish degrees in areas where a workforce is needed and entrepreneurship in encouraged.      

America needs to create a Cabinet level Department of the Environment where our Land, Sea, Air will remain clean and violators will be prosecuted.  

With over 40 million Americans Unemployed, the Federal government needs to encourage entrepenuership.   

Let us begin!!! 

The POWELL Position on Roe v. Wade:

As a Lutheran pastor, I preach life from the pulpit, as a parent I taught life to my daughter. Those are my personal and spiritual views as a private citizen.

As your next is my political position.

This is an issue that has affected the body politic long before 1973. Simply, in my view, this is a woman's issue.

I have and never will have had the decision to terminate a pregnancy. 

Individual women need to decide this matter, I leave it to women to decide the policy. I will vote to abstain and encourage my male colleagues to do the same.

This is why I support a woman nominee for president this year. Supreme Court nominees will be appointed in the next 4 years. 

I would rather women decide instead of men who oppress women in so many ways...salary, sexual harassment in the workplace, et al.

As the father of a 24 year old daughter, her choices should be equal to a man. 

Ultimately a good father could teach and hope but not dictate. Free will is humanity's greatest gift ...and greatest curse. I choose FREEDOM and on this issue the judgement is with the woman and men should stay out of it.

I would hope nearly 30 years of marriage and being the father of a 24 year old daughter has taught me something.

"Out of my distress I called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me free." - Psalm 118:5

Powell remembers JFK’s 103rd birth anniversary, asks citizens to watch his June 1963 speech on Civil Rights which was prophetic to today’s concerns sparked by the Minneapolis Murder.


United States Congressional candidate Rev. Mark J. Powell, M.Div. (D-IN 09) stated today America remembers the 103rd anniversary of the birth of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. President Kennedy’s brave leadership on racial relations could be used today.

Powell, a 60 year old Protestant minister stated, “On the 103rd anniversary of JFK'S birth, this address from the Oval Office on June 11, 1963 nearly 57 years ago (See #1) was prophetic to the situation in Minneapolis and throughout Black America today. Kennedy said, "We will not be free until ALL our citizens are free."

I run for Congress in 2020 because I know America is better than last night. 

I run for Congress because I know there are actions the Federal government MUST do today to bring peace and reconciliation to oppressed communities but there is CURRENTLY no political will.

I run for Congress because I know next year in America, with the correct leaders in place, America will not be Black America, White America, Brown or Red or Yellow America but RED, WHITE AND BLUE AMERICA. That is the Land I see over that new horizon of tomorrow. That is the nation where freedom is cherished. Then we will be a better nation than today.

Currently, how can we say to the oppressed people in Mainland China the American system is better than the Chinese Communist Party's system where their police arrest and kill their citizens when we here do it in our own nation and on camera? 

America has no choice but to change. If we do not change for the better we will be a House divided and from this moral division, we will not be able to stand. 

Let us join together to heal the Land we love. Then freedom will blossom around the world.

This primary campaign started out in January addressing White Supremacists in Lawrence County (See #2), sadly we end this primary campaign addressing the police murder of an American who was Black. 

As President Kennedy stated so many years ago, “We are not free until ALL our citizens are free.” America has work to do. I am ready, willing and able.” Powell stated.
