Contemplation

Contemplating Our Purpose in Life

Our purpose is first to take care of ourselves in mind, body and “little piece of God.”  If we don’t do that, we can’t help our families, others and God.  This requires self-discipline and the mutual respect between others and ourselves.

The realities of life can range from joy to sorrow and from triumphs to failures.  The poem, “If,” by Rudyard Kipling captures the feelings of this moment in much more articulate fashion than I can.  Truth and wisdom is so important for us individually and collectively.

My therapist told me years ago that my gift was making things simple.  That’s a wonderful compliment partly due to the source, but also due to the content.  Making things simple while still accumulating the essence of them really is a gift.  Thank You, Dear God.

The future is all we have ahead of us.  Part of that journey must include somehow overwhelming the radical Muslims and all other violent people.  Terrorism and crime must become completely absent from our lives.  Only God can guide us along this path toward Heaven on Earth.

I don’t ever foresee the world becoming a “playground.”  But I do see a joy running through our lives with the ups and the downs until we finally reach the Spiritual Age and God promotes and allows love to completely prevail.

We must stop kicking the fiscal can down the road!

The future is all we have ahead of us.  We need – globally and nation by nation – to take account of our governmental debt and entitlements.  The world has never been in a position such as this with such stupendous debt and entitlements.

“Kicking the can down the road” has happened again and again.  Our economic activity – worldwide – is suffering from this irresponsible behavior by many governments.

Japan – the third largest economy worldwide – is the worst in terms of its national debt/debt/GDP and the continual devaluation of its currency. But there are many other nations which have not taken care with their future – including the United States with 18.5 trillion in our national debt and unsound entitlements, not to mention student loans over a trillion dollars. But our own problems in the U. S. are only the start of it.  There’s Greece, Argentina, Russia, as well as France and Italy that are suspect if not worse.

The debts and entitlements are pressing down – especially in the U. S. on the middle class more so than the poor who have safety nets or the wealthy who are doing well in the stock market and elsewhere. But people are people and I detest President Obama’s type of politics pitting rich versus poor and all his “lies.”  His Obamacare, huge number of regulations and general and total incompetence have done more to hurt the middle class than one could have ever imagined in 2008.

To put it briefly, danger is ahead if governments around the world don’t come to this “fiscal sense.”  Usually it takes a catastrophe to understand, not the ultra-slow recovery from the “Great Depression” in the U. S. – subject to reversal.

“Kicking the can” must come to a realistic and human stop.  Remember, it was due to a deep currency and economic crisis that Adolf Hitler came to power; such a debacle could happen again.

Thinking Ahead to our Next Presidential Election is CRUCIAL

I just finished reading my latest blog for Governor Scott Walker as a 2016 Presidential winner and also my review of his book “Unintimidated.”

Scott Walker, in my opinion, has proven courage, leadership, innovation, capabilities, honesty, and conservative wisdom.

The Presidency with Scott Walker assuming office – on January 20, 2017 – will come none too soon.

World currencies are in question by those who have some understanding – genuine understanding of everything from the yen to the euro to the dollar and others.

A no-nonsense proven conservative at the local, legislative and governorship level is a deep need on January 20, 2017.

Scott Walker gets results.  He knows how to run the government in innovative, but workable ways.  In fact, he calls solving challenging problems in government, “Fun.”

Scott Walker is a rare breed whose time is now – both for the dire needs of America and the world, but also because he is ready.

I heartedly urge you to read “Unintimidated” by Scott Walker and my review, too.

I see many of the qualities of Ronald Reagan in Scott Walker perhaps more strongly; his effectiveness and his ability to get results in difficult situations.

Our current President demonstrates just the opposite that I see in Scott Walker and Secretary Clinton.  Should she become the Democratic nominee – she has never had the responsibilities anywhere near those of Governor Walker – and especially results, positive results in anything of consequence.

To be honest, we couldn’t afford to have eight years of President Obama.  The solution – and it won’t be easy- is to elect Governor Scott Walker and have a “turnaround” like we had when we moved from President Carter to President Reagan.  I deeply believe Governor Scott Walker can and will help immensely.  But we have almost two years to endure with an incompetent, anti-American President Obama – so pray, pray, pray that we can reach January 20, 2017 without disasters or currency crisis, Isis attacks all over the world, and on and on.

It is important that those who elected and then re-elected this disastrous Democratic President and those that supported him support Governor Scott Walker for President and Republicans at all levels in 2016.

We must reform our nation – especially our federal government.
