Attaining World Order: A Challenge for Our Next President

The mainstream liberal press didn’t defeat Scott Walker and a lot of other Republicans in 2014.  The pendulum is swinging toward Republicans who really care deeply about the opportunity, wants, and needs of our American citizens. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker cares and so do I. I want our country to regain its place in the world and for the world.

The future is all we have ahead of us.  So much of the world is plagued by government debt and entitlements that it is crucial that a currency crisis doesn’t occur before Scott Walker (as our next president) can begin the absolutely necessary reforms that are vital to return us to prosperity, real prosperity.

The reality of all this government debt, entitlements, and student debt in America and similar situations in much of the developed world is so very worrisome.  But, of course, most people don’t realize the risk of these government failures and lack of prudence.

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 Republicans!

Unite Republicans!

Behind Scott Walker who can win and show the nation the toughness and ability not only to win, but to lead with genuine results for all.

Americans

Unite!

Unite!

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.

 

Keys are:

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.

An Optimistic Future

I am an optimist at heart.  How else could I try to see the way toward heaven on earth – and do so persistently since year 2000?

But our nation is in jeopardy – with a President who doesn’t embody the traits of a capable, wise, and honest leader.  And right now the Democrats in the Senate make up the majority.  This allows the Democrat, Senator Harry Reid, to foster foolish statements and perverse policies.

This November – we Americans – in our stable and robust democracy – can allow responsible Republicans to take majorities in the House of Representatives and the Senate.  This will help shield our nation from the harmful actions of President Obama.

Our economy is anemic in the long-term with the current leadership – at best.  President Obama, Democrats, and the Federal Reserve have followed unsound fiscal policies, to the great detriment of our country, all the time blaming others, especially the Republicans, for any failures.

As a Republican, I deeply believe that now is the time that American voters must take back our beloved nation from these inept, unwise and dishonest Democrats.  President Reagan provided the ideal leadership to remedy the disaster that He identified.  Now we must elect Bill Cassidy and others to take the majority of the Senate in 2014.

We must gain our independence from President Obama and the Democrats to salvage our democracy.  Don’t think these are ordinary elections – 2014 or 2016.

President Obama squandered a hard-fought democracy in the Middle East – Iraq.  His incoherent policy can only be “explained” by his personal history of being surrounded by anti-Americans.  Of course, that pertains to his domestic policies, too.

We now have a near-record number of Republican Governors – thirty.  They are joined by a number of state Republican Legislators.  But they are fighting an uphill battle against the tirade of regulations from Washington, D. C., not to mention the higher taxes enacted in a tepid economy; both of these actions just the opposite of what President Reagan did to foster 25 years of healthy economic growth.  And don’t forget the foreign policy triumphs in the Cold War fostered largely by the Great Communicator, our beloved President Regan.

I now believe that the 2012 elections were affected drastically by a President who wanted re-election at “any cost” – including corrupting the Executive Branch of government, something that has continued in his second term.

I support pro-choice and green solutions, as do many other Republicans.  Climate change is an issue that is quite legitimate.  The “anti-women” rhetoric that the President and Democrats fostered is completely a diversion from their poor record while in the majority in the House and Senate – particularly Obamacare.  According to Bill Cassidy, who I support heartily for the U. S. senate, there are now 40 million people uninsured under the Obamacare law.   We can do better!

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 versus Hillary Clinton for President in the 2016 Election!

I support Governor Scott Walker in his re-election campaign as well as a candidate in 2016 for President.  Governor Walker is the son of an outstanding minister.  Scott had solid experience at the local level in Milwaukee, legislative level and is currently in his first superb term as Governor.

His accomplishments are partially and wonderfully contained in “Unintimidated.”

Scott is a superb leader, wise, honest, capable and courageous.  It’s not a matter of one thing he has done, but his whole public career of awesome feats.

Scott is a conservative in the mold of President Reagan.  He understands the political process, knows how to win – all important, and can help to reform our national government.

Yes, Scott is a reformer, just as President Reagan was.

Some cynics have given up on Washington and “the best way.”  We just can’t do that.  Skepticism of a healthy nature is fine, but we must not let the Democrats and President Obama or Secretary Clinton erode our freedoms and prosperity.

Instead, 2014 must, must, must be a turn toward reform in the nature of President Reagan.  One by one, reform by reform, we must invoke a new contract with America.

Who can say that the Democrats have brought prosperity to our nation?  After all is said, it is at the state level, in “red” states or Republican Governor states many times supported by Republican legislatures that have brought measures of prosperity to their states despite the negative waves from Washington.

Yes, it has been in spite of, and certainly not because of, that so many Republican states have done everything from improving education – adult as well as children; lowered taxes, thus stimulating individuals and businesses; and, quite significantly, brought fiscal discipline to their states.

The prescription that I recommend is more of the same in all 50 states, local governments,  and last, but certainly not least – our national government.

We can and we really must if we are to innovate as we must in this Innovation Age.

Courage is sorely needed in the national arena and I believe Governor Scott Walker has what it takes to lead our nation toward Heaven on Earth.

As to Secretary Clinton, I see her as a typical Democrat “folk hero” who really doesn’t have the local and state experience, or the character of Governor Walker – a Baptist minister’s son who has a serious record of public service and management skills and experience.

Much will be made of Secretary Clinton as her potential of being the first female President.  But I read a number of years ago, “The Case against Hillary Clinton.”  It was quite persuasive.

I believe her biggest problem is that of character.  The Presidency will be very difficult for her because she will face an almost impossible task of keeping up with what she told to various people.  Such a task is not so difficult for someone like Governor Walker who would be of an honest nature with all and would not have that additional stress.

Honesty is the best policy, for public servants as well as everyone else.

I don’t trust Secretary Clinton or President Obama.  In terms of the Presidency, he completely misled the American people on Obamacare and somehow he deserves to fall from the heights that the mainstream press has – quite undeservedly – placed him.

Trust is so critical to a stable, robust, prosperous democracy.  President Reagan was trusted and, thus, was quite effective not only economically, but also by foreign leaders, even behind the Iron Curtain.

Honesty from a Baptist minister’s son can help to cure this malady of Democratic “folk heroes” making.

In a democracy such as ours, we each of voting age have a role to play.

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.

Experience and Qualifications versus Issues

I deeply believe that Republicans like President Reagan are part of a wholesome, prosperous and bright future for America and the world.  I honestly tell all sorts of people that he has been the greatest President in my lifetime.

We need Republicans and Democrats to make our republic work.  Civility between the parties is also direly needed, not just between elections but during them.

Elections should not be a shortcut or character assassinations.  Also, issues should not be dominant. The experience and qualifications of candidates should overshadow issues – especially not vote-getting premises of more government aid.  Our aid, other developed countries and some other nations have national debts, entitlement and such that imperil not only their own nation, but the whole world.

President Reagan provided superb leadership in a time such as this.  Such leadership is sorely needed now.    My hope and prayer is that Republicans can gain House and Senate seats this year and win the Presidency in 2016.  It will be none too soon.
