Scott Reed ran Bob Dole’s disastrous 1996 presidential campaign. Dole lost and Scott Reid now works for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. He is now a senior political analyst for the chamber. Scott Reed says he plans to crush the Tea Party. Karl Rove, another high-ranking member of the consultant class, has also declared war on the Tea Party.

Christmas has come and gone and we have celebrated the birth of Christ. However, he will always be with us. We will know the tree by the fruit it bares. We do not need to say God bless America. Americans need to bless God through his son.
There have been two that have died for you and I. Jesus Christ for our sins and the American soldiers for our freedom. More and more Americans are getting to the point that they don’t believe they need God. This nation continues to forget who she was yesterday, therefore she does not know who she is or where she is going.
