MEMBER DIARY

The Watercooler ~ RedState’s Daily Open Thread

Got my dander up this morning as I read Erick’s diary about Karl Rove setting his sights on stopping the Tea Party and conservatives in the next election. The audacity. I had hoped Rove was sufficiently humiliated enough to drop out of sight for good after his attempts to snuff us out in 2012 blew up in his face. But no such luck. He is even more determined to crush us now. The war is on and we all have too much to lose to turn back now. But as Erick said, it is a blessing in disguise because whoever Rove decides to endorse will be the target for conservatives to defeat.

Sure hope we hear from Jim DeMint soon. I feel confident that he will help us with strategies to defeat Rove and the Bush-era establishment Republicans. How much you wanna bet their man for 2016 will be Jeb? Now is the time for conservatives to make major gains in 2014.

Scripture for today comes from Proverbs 14:34:

Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.

That one needs little commentary. Contrary to what so many God-haters think, though, it explains America’s exceptional past. It is also key to why social conservatives believe the nation’s success hinges on moral righteousness.

The thread is open.
