MEMBER DIARY

Winning Michigan is not an option, Mr. Santorum

The issue of Christians and any other religious minorities suffering anywhere in the world is a grave concern. But United States in many cases did not do enough to prevent genocides. You can do something or a comprehensive thing only if you are a president.

You may have the looks of James Stewart somewhat and you may be the Mr. Smith went to Washington as Senator. But you are not a President yet and becoming one must be the only priority. There are millions of people killed in the last 100 years and there may be few thousand will die from now to January, 2013.

You can make the difference, only if you have the power.

In Wonderful Life, the question was what if the protagonist was not born…. You have to think what if you were not the president.

What are the dire consequences?

Your diary about Christians Middle East or various positions you have taken is commendable as you have explained in Arizona debate is good for the believers.

But if you lose in Michigan, your bid is over and the minorities all over the world are going to perish anyways.

In 2008, people were looking for solutions and not someone who can reach across the Aisle.

In 2012, people are looking for a strong leader and not a CEO or a statesman.

American President is pretty much king elected every 4 years based on people’s expectations. And a king is expected to be strong leader. In my previous diary, I wrote about the stale issues like abortion, second amendment, etc. Here are more stale items: ear marks, deficit, national debt, vouchers, no child left behind etc.

Please stay out of all stale issues…. Please stay out of right wing social engineering to social security, medicare and flat tax.

Reducing the corporate taxes is same as reaching across the aisle. It would end as gimmickry. It is neither  going to reduce unemployment nor bring back the manufacturing.

Come with bold initiatives… Talk about heavy industries and well paying jobs. Energy initiatives generate millions of jobs drawing trillion dollars in investments.

  • Increase nuclear power generation share from 20% to 90% of electricity generation.
  • Coal/natural gas/Algae conversion to generate liquid fuel. Talk about big industries and not small businesses.
  • Open 100 new medical schools.

 

Peace comes with prosperity and benevolence comes from the strength.

When you are the president, give only 24 hours for diplomacy. When the marines were killed in Lebanon there was no strong response. Had there been a strong response there would have been no 9/11.

Conservatism with kindness and courage and that what the world needs today. 

As a senator you had fewer choices on certain things. Tell the world you are not running to be a super senator or super CEO. You are running for the president of the United States, the best nation in the history of the mankind
