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.

Rallying the Republicans for Election 2016

We Republicans must unite solidly and quickly behind Scott Walker for President.  Why?  Most of all he is a winner built on courage, leadership, innovation, wisdom, capability, and vision – much more such as his genuine values.

If we Republicans unite behind Scott Walker early, it avoids the disaster we had in 2012.  There is absolutely no way that President Obama should have been re-elected.  A lack of unity, especially early, can help to avoid the confusion with voters.

Winning with Scott Walker, the Presidency, both Houses of Congress with solid majorities and conservative Republican values at all levels nationwide can turn around the train wreck of President Obama and his Democratic supporters.

A big win in this nature must avoid the status quo.  President Regan would find a way to win in 2016.  I believe Scott Walker will, too.  He’s won three elections in a blue state as a conservative.  Wisconsin also was carried by President Obama in 2008 and 2012.

Plain and simple, America and the world are in trouble.  There is an urgency for courage and leadership.  Government debt and entitlements are pressing down and hurting our job and business opportunities.  Japan, Europe, Russia, Argentina and even China also are supporting this debt and sometimes entitlement disease.

There is no easy solution but a proven innovator like Scott Walker can – I deeply believe – do wonders not only for America, but the world.

 

Unite Republicans!

Unite!

for Scott Walker in a resounding journey to a win on November 4, 2016.

The press – the liberal press – will want a “horse race” with Republicans hurting each other.  That is certainly not my vision of a victorious path to the Presidency in 2016.

Remember what “How the Republicans can WIN in a Changing America.”  They wrote not to speak ill of another Republican.

Until November 4, 2016, everything that Republicans do at all levels must be extremely responsible and effective.

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.

The Importance of Positive Values

I have been following the many elections across the globe.  The more I think about India’s election, the more I like it.  As Prime Minister, Modi can and I think will, become a great leader, not only in India, but eventually with great respect globally.

The elections in the Ukraine are encouraging, too; the election of a billionaire who perhaps, hopefully and prayerfully, can’t be “bought” by President Putin.

In Egypt, it appears the “election” of a military authority was without legitimacy as far as genuine democracy.

In Europe, the whole continent (EU) is without direction and the people need the positive values of Copthorne MacDonald and need to shun his negative values – as we all do, but quite difficult there without the foundation of spiritual faith and religions.

A minimum wage law is a form of trickle down government that hurts the unskilled and uneducated poor the most – especially the young, who could work as interns until they gain the skills to rise to better paying levels.

Corporations, in essence, are people, groups of humans similar to other human entities.

The politics of negative values result in negative results, maybe not in terms of achieving election “victories,” but in terms of gaining wise, capable and honest leaders.

The decisive politics of President Obama and the Democrats has and is hurting America.

I support Bill Cassidy, M. D., for the U. S. Senate this year because our nation is in dire need of capable, honest and wise Republicans at all levels in 2014 (including Scott Walker in his re-election campaign as Governor of Wisconsin).

In 2016 we direly need more Republican victories, including the Presidency by Scott Walker.

Let’s address the negative values; hate, revenge, greed, envy and selfishness.  Can you see how President Obama has used those bad values over and over again, especially for the 2012 elections?

He is trying to use them again in 2014 with the minimum wage.  It sounds on the surface that it is a good thing to raise the pay of those on the bottom.  But legislating economies is a very tricky thing.  The truth about legislating a higher minimum wage is that it hurts many who are unskilled, particularly the young who may have little in the way of education.  Businesses will tend to automate more and not hire as many of the unskilled as they would without this “raise.”

Of course, President Obama and the Democrats are fully aware of the real effects of a minimum wage increase.  But they are pushing it to pretend that they are for the people on the bottom.  If they were really for the people on the bottom, they wouldn’t be so anti-business and growth in our economy wouldn’t be so anemic.

Two key drivers of bad policy are:

·       A corporate income tax that is about the highest in the developed world – that is extremely bad for the people on the bottom.

·       Far too many regulations of all kinds.  Again, that is terrible for the people on the bottom because it does so much damage to business formation, existence and growth.  In other words, jobs and increases in pay.

Business is the engine of prosperity in all modern economies.  Invigorated businesses

can and do employ more and more people at better and better rates of pay.  Now that does not mean there can’t be dynamic and clear regulations with simple, low taxation that can be the tempering part of democracies.

Complex, arbitrary, unwise, ornery regulations are the enemy of prosperity – and especially those in the middle class and below.

The media helps and has helped President Obama and the Democrats to foster those unwise business regulations and tax laws.

Albert Einstein stated, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”  I agree with that.  But, the higher the platform of knowledge, the higher the greater the reach for imagination.  Look at Albert Einstein.  He had a lot of physics education.  He did his “thought experiments” with his genius of mind.  But he had the knowledge of his previous education to imagine his superb thoughts.

Truth is one of Copthorne MacDonald’s wisdom-associated values.  Truth and honesty is a difficult path among those running for public office or those public servants already in office.  Why?  Because one is tempted to say what the immediate audience wants to hear – truthful or not.

The truth is that raising the minimum wage hurts the people at the bottom the most.  Yet it appeals to liberals and so many who don’t understand the actual consequences of raising the minimum wage.  Now President Obama understands the negative effects of raising the minimum wage.  But he is – as usual – rallying around the political hay that he might make with this issue.

I’ve written before that President Obama is a superb political hack, but the American people must defeat his plots of politics in 2014.  The stakes for our nation and the world are too high for us to let such tactics win.

It is crucial to America and the world that Republicans win at all levels in 2014 and 2016.  It’s going to take Republicans at all levels to get our nation back on track.

I believe we can do it.  It won’t be easy, not just the elections, but wise, competent, honest governing at all levels.

Like the song notes, “The world needs love, sweet love.”  That does not mean “love” without values or foundational faith.  It means a sort of enduring resilient type of love.

Things that come cheaply can and perhaps normally do end cheaply.  Values and foundations of faith are important to behavior that is pleasing to God.  The role of love in life cannot be overstated.

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.

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.

A Call to Action

I see America like Ronald Reagan saw it, as a shining city on the hill, a beacon of freedom, liberty, and democracies, as well as a nation which fostered prosperity at home and internationally.

On June 8, 1982, President Reagan stated, “If history teaches anything, it teaches self-delusion in the face of unpleasant facts of folly.”  To me that speaks to President Obama and all his fellow Democratic “folk heroes” who will drive our nation into a depression (just as Democrats did to Detroit) if we, the people, don’t step up and understand that delusion the Democrats are perpetuating, over and over and over again.

The mainstream media is just not reporting hard news without bias; so much of our educational systems purvey the same liberal bias.  So, in a way, it’s not self-delusion, but an onslaught of forces that prevent citizens, especially the young, from realizing the underlying truth in our nation and the world.

As the sole superpower—for now—and the largest economy—for now, we must head in the direction of Heaven on Earth.  History is rife with the rise and failure of empires.  We have this very unique opportunity to not just “make a difference” but to have a huge impact in transforming our planet non-violently.

In this worldwide drama, there are no “bit” parts, especially in the United States electorate.  Voting without facts, emotionally (without facts), or for one’s perceived selfish wellbeing, is not in keeping with the path toward Heaven on Earth.

All this is not a matter of mere opinion, but it reflects my deep conviction that Republicans can and will lead us toward Heaven on Earth.  It’s a statement that sincerely must be made by the American people, a statement that, I believe, will echo throughout our planet in a peaceful, positive, and influential sort of manner.

I believe that the nation and the world deserve mighty Republican victories in 2014 and 2016; and none too soon.

What can citizens do who recognize my truth?  Support Republicans as much as possible.  But also write, call, and contact the media.
