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

By John E. Wade II / June 24, 2015 /

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…

Innovation in Government

By John E. Wade II / June 16, 2015 /

Leave a reply I frequently think about how important it is to America and the world that WI Governor Scott Walker be elected president in November, 2016, and assumes control in a fair, kind, and competent manner immediately upon assuming office. I believe in innovation in government–and in all other facets of life. I believe…

We Can’t Tax Our Way into Prosperity

By John E. Wade II / June 10, 2015 /

I recently had dinner with my best friend, George, and I expressed a lot of political ideas and judgments to him.  We have a stable, robust democracy in America. However, our prosperity is in jeopardy – with a huge national debt, over a trillion in student loans and entitlements that are actuarially unsustainable. These are…

The Positives of Globalization

By John E. Wade II / June 9, 2015 /

I’ve now read Henry Kissinger’s World Order several times. It’s a wonderful book steeped in history of governments and nations.  But in the 21st century and perhaps in the past, too, private enterprise and trade as well as government actions that influenced those most important parts of human endeavor were greatly under-emphasized. It’s time for that to change.…

Attaining World Order: A Challenge for Our Next President

By John E. Wade II / June 9, 2015 /

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…

Attaining World Order

By John E. Wade II / June 5, 2015 /

I’ve read and I plan to write a lengthy review of World Order, by Henry Kissinger.  It’s quite informative and interesting, but so much of the book is taken up by wars, balance of power, and such with very little devoted to globalization and the fact that governments do not compare in size with private businesses…

The Time is NOW to Stop Radical Muslims

By John E. Wade II / June 3, 2015 /

The barbaric acts of the radical Muslims must be stopped.  Militarily they can not be allowed to go on.  But part of the long-term puzzle is a worldwide alliance of all major non-Muslim nations.  The Sage of Singapore recommended that approach.  This alliance would back the moderate Muslims.  But another piece of the puzzle is…

Election 2016 Is on My Mind!

By John E. Wade II / June 3, 2015 /

One of the worst things that can plague a democracy is corruption and distrust toward its leader.  That’s exactly what we would have if Secretary Clinton becomes the next president. It just doesn’t make sense to elect a person for president who can’t be trusted from the very beginning. We need an honest, capable, and…

Democracies, Freedom, and Free Enterprise

By John E. Wade II / June 2, 2015 /

I recently wrote some thoughts as I was reading through (for the second time, I think), Henry Kissinger’s recent book, World Order. Although Kissinger doesn’t say so, I believe he thinks President Obama lost a war that had already been won, even though he had reservations about the nation building there and perhaps in the war…

WI Gov. Scott Walker’s Results–They Really Count!
