Now that Karl Rove is setting up his new Conservative Victory Project that will challenge committed constitutionally conservative candidates, we are about to see an internal fight among GOP conservatives that will rival Joan Collins and Linda Evans from the 80s show Dynasty.
Their fights were classic! Before we continue with our analysis, please watch the video below to understand how vicious this fight is going to be. Go 45 seconds into the video to capture the true essence of the fight.
This fight will be worse than a pillow fight between Collins and Evans. This will be worse than Tom and Jerry. Yes, worse than Nancy and Tonya. What is about to transpire is a fight for the soul of the Republican Party. Even more than that, it is a fight for the future of conservatism.
Which side will win out? Will it be Karl Rove and his money machine intent on preserving a GOP majority for decades to come that has no problem with moderate Republicans as long as they have an “R” after their name and caucus with Republicans? Or will faithful Tea Party principles win out, led by a group of patriots who are more concerned about standing on the principles of freedom and limited government than worrying about the future of the Republican Party?
The outcome is unclear. The only thing that is known is the brutality of these upcoming GOP Primary battles.
But let me say this: The buzz inside the evangelical community is that they are ready for a fight with the GOP power brokers. They are ready to fight for Judeo-Christian principles and for candidates who stand for them. They are tired of being used by a Republican Party who has asked for their loyalty but has delivered little in return. These evangelical leaders see a Republican Party that is reluctant to talk about social issues anymore even though the real problem in America is its moral decline.
The result is that you now have a situation where GOP leaders feel the ticket to remaining a viable political party is to grow the “big tent” and in the process move away from hot-button social issues because they don’t want to “offend” anyone and lose votes in the process.
Evangelicals say no way. They see this as a struggle between good and evil. They will not retreat. As a matter of fact, Karl Rove’s new business venture may have just awakeed a sleeping giant. Now, evangelicals know for sure where Rove and the “Establishment Class” stand. They want to win elections and preserve the Republican Party. That’s the goal, plain and simple.
Evangelicals want to win elections too but they aren’t interested in preserving the Republican Party. They’re interested in preserving the culture and the constitutionally conservative Judeo-Christian principles that come along with it. The battle lines have been drawn. The fight is on. Joan Collins and Linda Evans better watch out.
