The Dire Need for Governor Scott Walker as our 2016 Presidential Winner

I did say winner, because Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin is a superb winner. His courageous leadership, honesty, and innovative nature, along with his local-level, legislative, and governorship qualities and experience absolutely shine. These same qualities will shine if Scott Walker is elected as our next president.

Governor Walker, as a conservative republican, has won three gubernatorial elections in the last four years in a blue state that President Obama carried in both 2008 and 2012. This includes a recall election won by a larger margin than the initial election—the first governor in U.S. history to win a recall election.

How is Governor Walker such a winner? One example was his decisive action and courage in eliminating bargaining entitlements—by fighting the unions—to increase efficiency, fiscal flexibility, and effectiveness of schools and state government. By gaining flexibility without those entitlements—a great innovation—he was able to save jobs and lower taxes…and …much more.

Scott Walker can win the presidency in 2016 and rescue us from the damage of the Obama-led democratic disaster, through his genuine, honest, wise, and capable leadership. If you’d like to know more about Governor Scott Walker, I encourage you to read my review of his book, Unintimidated: A Governor’s Story and a Nation’s Challenge.

Scott Walker Can be Our Next “President Reagan”

As I’ve recently written, I read Henry Kissinger’s fine book, “World Order.”  It’s well-written and certainly worth careful reading and consideration.  But I do have one major problem with it – a book called “World Order” with practically little mentioned about globalization, business, taxation, regulations – so much of which directly affects – for good or bad – prosperity.  And prosperity is one of the key elements of a Heaven on Earth.

Kissinger says about President Reagan “rarely has America produced a President so suited to his time . . . ““. . . Reagan combined America’s latent, sometimes seemingly discordant strengths:  its idealism, its resilience, its creativity, and its economic vitality.”

We need the courageous leadership of Governor Scott Walker to invoke those same superb qualities in our nation.  He can.  He will.  It’s up to the American people to realize the opportunities of having a strong pro-business President like Scott Walker reviving our country, following President Obama and his fellow Democrats’ dismal performance.

Motivation, Simplification, and Love

This past November was a huge victory for Republicans, America and the world.  Thank You, dear God.

I sincerely believe that the Republican Party should now begin to unite around Governor Scott Walker to run as our 2016 Presidential candidate.  His record for winning difficult elections is proven.  His courage, leadership and innovation are proven.

Over the next two years the Republican Party must unite to avoid damage from this divisive, arrogant, radical, incompetent, dishonest and unwise President.

We must be positive in trying to help our economy through lowering and simplifying taxes – corporate and individual.  We must try to obtain the keystone XL Pipeline.  We must pursue ways to achieve universal healthcare with ways that make sense economically, doctor-patient relationship wise.  Without one’s health, there is nothing but one’s faith in God.

Free, fair trade agreements should be sought worldwide.

The wisdom values must be spread in all ways possible – empathy, truth, honesty, justice, cooperation, peace, compassion, universal well-being, creativity and general knowledge.  And just as important as seeking to promote the positive values, we must do all we can to shun the negative values of selfishness, greed, envy, hate and revenge.

We can’t be perfect, at least right now in The Innovation Age, but pursuing wisdom-associated values and shunning the negative values, can allow us to improve, within ourselves and helping others to do the same.

We need to treat each other with and between entities not with complex laws and regulation, but strive to attain a rule of values.

If something is not right, our first reaction should not be to advocate for government to do something about it.  First, we must ask ourselves what we can do about it.  Freedom can be, in effect, lost by over-regulation and over-laws.  Individual freedom must be championed by all as we seek wisdom and shun the negative values.

The future is all we have ahead of us.  One very vital way to guard that future is through financial literacy – as individuals, government entities, spiritual entities, business entities; basically all human entities have a financial literacy factor.  Prudence and wisdom require us to recognize this vital part of our existence.

 

I really like the way Governor Scott Walker started out his victory speech.  He thanked God.  I thank God, also, for all the results of the big Republican wave yesterday.

We need Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives and everything in between.  The truth must be our goal and so often it’s subjective and not easily perceived. From birth we must seek wisdom.  That goes for voters, too, as well as candidates of both parties. We are in The Innovation Age.  It’s exciting as well as a time we must cling to wisdom values, shun negative values and seek a foundation of faith in God.

We must grow in our fitness of mind, body and our “little piece of God,” in balance with meaning and purpose.  We can, we must, and I believe we will as I sincerely believe that Almighty God has pre-determined that somehow, someway we will have Heaven on Earth.  Why?  Because I believe deeply that “God is Love.”  And that He loves us with an enduring, steadfast love, on a moment by moment basis, throughout eternity.

We all have our own spiritual journey.  Some are devoutly religious with one of the world’s great religions – and are kind, loving and compassionate.  Some have never managed their first step on their spiritual journey.

But one by one, million by million, billion by billion, I sincerely believe someday, somehow, this Innovation Age will grow into the Spiritual Age – Heaven on Earth.

America is still a frontier, not just in technology, but we must become the leader in innovation not just to help ourselves, but also the destitute of the world.   We are not only Americans, but we are also world citizens just as all others on earth.

A world full of stable, robust, prosperous democracies will be a world of permanent peace.  But we must reach that wonderful goal through non-violence, and, as a backup, American military strength.

The role of America in the world – in my opinion – is special.  We are the frontier.  We must not sink into complacency or low self-esteem.  Instead, we must examine ourselves honestly, yet in a healthy manner, realizing that, as of now, no nation and no individual is perfect.

The reality of life is to survive, strive and thrive.  That’s not something that is awarded by birth; it is a continuous and wondrously challenging process.  I think the quote that “If it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger” is so worthy and truthful.

Our Country’s Bright Future

I am very optimistic that Republicans can be victorious in 2014 and 2016.  But we can’t take ANYTHING for granted.  We have a President who is a superb political hack.  He knows how to pull the emotional strings and is not concerned about the truth or consequences to America or its people – or the world.

To preserve the American dream of upward mobility for all its people, it is absolutely mandatory that Republicans are victorious in 2014 and 2016.

The mainline press won’t help us.  Many liberal universities won’t help us.

Who will?  I have faith in democracy now and, in those crucial elections, for our people to step up to the plate and discern the truth.

Right now we have 30 Republican governors and they are getting results – better education through charter schools, vouchers, etc.; fiscal sanity unlike Illinois and Detroit which have been governed by the folk heroes of the Democrats, and on and on.

I am impressed by Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin, having read his book “Unintimidated” once – word for word – and reviewing it multiple times.

From it I hear the voice of my lifetime’s greatest President, President Ronald Reagan.  Not only does he communicate quite well; he has a vital grasp of local, Wisconsin and national affairs.

He doesn’t have the title of “community organizer” in his resume, but he has a whole lot more important experience – things that are intensely relevant to our future.

But now is now.  We must elect Republicans at all levels – state legislators, governorships, other state offices, Senators, and Congress persons in 2014.  We must take back our government from the liberals who are wrecking us domestically and internationally.

I’ll never forget how at the Democratic National Convention in 2012 they booed God, more than once.  So, how could 2,000,000 Republicans stay home – on Election Day?  Shame!  Shame!  Shame!

The reality of the global financial situation is perilous and we have a President who is incoherent in his foreign policy.

Republicans must strike now in 2014 and again in 2016 to allow us to lead – economically as well as militarily – to allow us to reach toward Heaven on Earth.

The cynics will not understand the positive possibilities of the future.  It is up to the healthy skeptics and the pragmatists to understand the wonderful outlook – if we vote and support good government and sound fiscal policies and a whole lot more good things from the Republicans at all levels.

We don’t need a folk hero to lead our country!

Consider the legacy of President Reagan – a growth economy which enhanced the lives of so many in the middle class, lower class mobility and everyone else; and how his adroit bargaining, economic strength and military power led to the end of the Cold War, without firing a shot.

We have some of the similar challenges now, a difficult economy, radical Muslims, and Russian expansionism.

In our democracy we each have an important role to play in terms of voters.  I hope and pray that our electorate will discern the immense possibilities in electing Scott Walker, who is currently the Governor of Michigan.  I genuinely, deeply believe that he has the “right stuff” to propel us toward heaven on earth.  He has a rich and victorious electoral and accomplishment record at the local and state level.  He hasn’t been contaminated by the Washington beltway re-election disease.  He’s a courageous leader like President Reagan.

Yes, Republican, Democratic and independent voters should try to see through the mainstream press which is likely to attempt to destroy ANY Republican Presidential candidate despite the glaring character and other flaws of Secretary Clinton.

America doesn’t need a Democratic “folk hero” in 2016 or, for that matter, in other offices in 2014.

Scott Walker has the “Right Stuff” for Our Nation

I truly enjoyed my many readings of Governor Scott Walker’s book, Unintimidated.  His record as Governor of Wisconsin is impressive, demonstrating strength of character and principles, innovative positive actions, wisdom, honesty, and leadership.

All in all, I genuinely believe Governor Walker has “the right stuff” for re-election in Wisconsin and a winning Presidential run in 2016.  He has both local and state experience.  He was County Executive for Milwaukee County as he was re-elected three times with larger margins of victory each time.  He also served in the Wisconsin Legislature.

He learned at the local level how destructive public unions are—willing to accept layoffs of teachers, other workers, and higher taxes, just about anything to preserve their involuntary dues income.

Federal employees have some unions, but they have much more limited powers than many state and local unions.  But federal workers receive pay and benefits 16 percent higher than comparable pay in the private sector.  I believe that as president, Scott Walker would address both pay, redundancies and inefficiencies in our federal government; there are enormous savings that could be found in that endeavor.  But it takes courage and it must be done in a kind way, with outplacement services comparable to good citizen corporations.

Courage is in short supply for so many inside the Washington beltway.  Governor Scott Walker, like President Reagan, could provide courageous leadership toward heaven on earth.

We need to increase growth and opportunity in our nation.  Upward mobility is crucial.  Education, which Governor Walker understands, is one definite key in the 21st century.  Without education, upward mobility for most is stymied.  I understand that the budget for teachers’ unions nationwide is larger than that of the Republican and Democratic Parties combined.  But when collective bargaining rights of unions are taken away, as in Wisconsin and Indiana, schools are able to be run with the primary goal of maximizing student upward mobility, not the income of union bosses.

Secretary Clinton and President Obama are creatures of union support, in effect helping to destroy the upward mobility of students all over our nation.

Unions were once needed by workers who were abused by management.  But that time was decades ago.  It is possible to have responsible unions, but the record and effect of teacher unions has been disgraceful.  In the 21stcentury we must motivate and educate all our citizens, especially our youth of all races, to attain global-type capabilities.  Unions, especially teacher unions, are the enemy of upward mobility in the United States.

Governor Scott Walker has proven through death threats and national media calling him “Dead Man Walker” that he will stand up to unions and whatever else stands in the way of our nation’s journey toward heaven on earth.  As he essentially points out in his book, he is not anti-union, but he is pro-teacher, pro-student, pro-taxpayer, and pro-good government.

He states again and again that he respects public servants who concentrate on the next generation rather than the next election.  He also explains that those persons are much more apt to win the next election.

The march to Heaven on Earth is not without its challenges.  Governor Scott Walker has faced—with determination and strength—his share and more.  And he certainly shined.  He’s needed to continue his reforms in Wisconsin in one of the 50 laboratories of our democracy.  But on January 20, 2017, I hope and pray that he will be inaugurated as a Reagan-like President of the 21st century.  I see that in him, genuinely and sincerely.

And remember the legacy of President Reagan: a growth economy which enhanced the lives of so many in the middle class, lower class mobility and everyone else, and how his adroit bargaining, economic strength and military power led to the end of the Cold War, without firing a shot.  We have some of the similar challenges now, a difficult economy, radical Muslims, and Russian expansionism.

In our democracy we each have an important role to play in terms of voters.  I hope and pray that our electorate will discern the immense possibilities in electing Scott Walker.  I genuinely, deeply believe that he has the “right stuff” to propel us toward Heaven on Earth.  He has a rich and victorious electoral and accomplishment record at the local and state level.  He hasn’t been contaminated by the Washington beltway re-election disease.  He’s a courageous leader like President Reagan.
