From My Perspective: Why We MUST Vote FOR Bill Cassidy for the United States Senate

  I am a Caucasian who grew up in a segregated South in Mississippi and Georgia, but have lived in New Orleans since 1977. I have seen positive changes in the elevation of African Americans in the South and nationally. But there is much left to be done and it is my sincere belief that Republicans can do so to the benefit of everyone of every race.
    The tragedy of Senator Mary Landrieu’s democratic “leadership” of Louisiana African Americans is sad, very sad.  After eighteen years of being in Washington as a Senator, what has she accomplished for African Americans? I recently viewed a commercial about her lack of on-the-ground effects between her elections with a lot of African American support.  The commercial was followed by an African American panel of Louisiana-elected Republicans, yes, I said African American Republicans.
    It’s time for such leaders to speak out against Senator Landrieu and her record of voting with her fellow Democrats for hand-out programs, while supporting the Obama Administration in such vital areas as education.  In New Orleans, which is predominately African American, charter schools are helping in the long term the ones who need it most.  And what do the teacher unions and Obama Administration do about that?  They oppose these charter schools, a long term piece of the puzzle for New Orleans’ crime problems and potentially unemployable (if uneducated) African Americans.
    Education!  Education!  Education!
    This is a key in this Innovation Age and it will be more and more important as time goes by.  Senator Landrieu’s blind acceptance of the Obama Administration (97 percent of her 2013 votes and similar democratic votes over 18 years) have hurt the very ones to whom she seeks (and allegedly to whom she caters, though it is apparent that she isn’t truly helping them) as a liberal politician over and over and over again.  The panel I saw does not believe in the values of the Democratic Party, which foster dependency instead of education. Education is the only long-term solution and opportunity for everyone–African Americans, Caucasians, Hispanics, young and old, everyone.
    We must grow in fitness of our mind, body and “little piece of God.”  Teacher union bosses–with their first priority of union dues–adversely affect this process.  And guess who gets hoards of money and on-the-ground support from these union bosses?  You guessed it, the Obama Administration and Senator Landrieu.  Who suffers from that connection?  African Americans and Hispanics who can’t afford private schools, but have a real opportunity in the charter schools.
    I say it again.  The most important long-term issue is: Education! Education! Education!
    I stand in support of Congressman Bill Cassidy, M.D., who cares about the long-term plight of African Americans and all the other people of Louisiana. He knows education is a winner in the long-term and we must not let our Katrina gains in education and the leadership in that area slip away while sending Senator Landrieu  back to her “real” home, Washington D.C. (as news accounts have shown that she doesn’t really live in Louisiana).
    Senator Landrieu is a politician who represents the failed policies that go all the way back to the “Great Society.” Those policies have been disastrous for African American families–in the long term. The values of Dr. Bill Cassidy are in line with those African Americans on the panel who see the truth–dependency on food stamp type programs is fine and kind to an extent, but that certainly is not the long-term solution for our poor. Living from one government check to another doesn’t foster the values that give individuals real opportunities in their lives. It is also very detrimental to the recipient’s self-esteem. This dependency must be addressed in a kind way, a long-term way, through education and other positive long-term programs that really work.
    For New Orleans, I have a warning. The Katrina money is going to dry up and the path ahead must be far-sighted, especially in education.
    Again, I support Dr. Bill Cassidy for senate and his long-term identification with the real needs of all our Louisiana citizens, not least of which is education, education, education, a Republican priority.

Reelecting Senator Landrieu would be WRONG

The liberal Senator Landrieu has been elected to represent the conservative state of Louisiana, yet her voting record is incomprehensible.  How in the world can Senator Landrieu keep a straight face while she is in Louisiana, when her voting record in Washington is aligned with President Obama 97 percent of the time?  And, unfortunately, that includes a crucial vote for the passage of Obamacare.
    Thankfully, come November 4th, Louisianians can right this wrong with a wonderful conservative republican, Congressman Bill Cassidy M.D.  Bill Cassidy actually read Obamacare after Nancy Peloci forced it through the democratically controlled House for passage.  He opposed the bill on network television.  As a physician, he understands the importance of doctor-patient relationships, especially over time.
    Let’s elect a senator who represents us, not President Obama.
    The importance of this election can’t be overstated.  Republicans and everyone else must realize that it is essential that President Obama be opposed in his final two years by a united Republican majority in the House AND Senate.  We can do it!  We must do it!  Senator Harry Reid must not “lead” the Senate.  Senate committees must have Republican chairs.
    Go Republicans!
    Go Bill Cassidy M.D.!

Governor Scott Walker: A Wise, Capable and Honest Leader

Governor Scott Walker’s book, Unintimidated, is inspiring to me.  Governor Walker has strong, innovative experience at the local, state legislative and state executive levels.  He has and is making reform after reform.  We desperately need that sort of innovation in government at the federal level.  We Republicans must win—and win big—on a nationwide basis in 2014 in order to properly modify Obamacare, turn the budget around and make other necessary reforms.  Then in 2016, a strong and successful Republican ticket—possibly headed by Governor Walker—would allow serious innovation at the federal level, including kind, efficient, extensive, imaginative and creative actions.  Of course, to do that, Republicans in Congress have to be victorious in 2016, too.

We have our work cut out for us in 2014 and 2016 but there is a dire need to help the American people and bring back stability and order, and encourage freedom and democracies globally.  Prosperity is a major goal both domestically and internationally.  It is one of the ten elements of Heaven on Earth as I have conceived it.  And I believe Republicans can restore that and more.

President Reagan instituted economic policies that revolutionized our business sector and led to similar policies around the world, including China, with very successful outcomes.  The United States, initiated by President Reagan’s programs, proceeded on a twenty-five year growth path with dramatic and positive effects and opportunities for the American people.

It’s history which Democrats have tried to rewrite.

Now, I sincerely believe we need Republicans and Democrats in our fairly unique two-party system.  In China they have only one party.  That is not good and is detrimental to the freedom and liberty of the Chinese people.

But, at the same time, sovereignty is sovereignty and we need world order.  Eventually, we, the United States, ought to encourage people around the world to seek their own freedom, liberty and democracy within their own borders through nonviolent means.

Poverty breeds all sorts of bad things.  Free enterprise can help enormously and that is one of the prime reasons I oppose President Obama.  He just doesn’t understand or trust business and is philosophically opposed to it—unless he, in a third world way—can control it, especially BIG business.

I’ve seen the financial insides of all sizes of businesses.  What I’ve found is they are all just people—groups of people.  Profit is not a bad word, certainly not one of those many four-letter words invoked against Governor Walker as he went about reforming the state of Wisconsin.

Life is a struggle and none of us knows in depth the suffering of many, many people, with or without money, power and prestige.  Governor Walker certainly had a difficult time, as described in his book, Unintimidated.  But he was victorious, not just for himself, but more importantly for the people of Wisconsin and the example to our nations that Republican innovations and reforms can work wonders, including improving education, lowering property taxes, fully funding state pensions, the only such state in our country, lowering income taxes, fostering greater reemployment, and turning a deficit into a surplus without layoffs and austerity.

We need Governor Scott Walker in the presidency and that is why I am declaring my support so early.  First, re-elect him Governor of Wisconsin, and then help him march on to become the next President of the United States.  I sincerely believe Governor Scott Walker is the kind of leader that President Reagan was, a populist conservative who understands how to get results.
