It is difficult for me to actually believe the final outcome of the just run Presidential Election!

It is so difficult to believe, because Obama had so much working against him that it took a noble purpose for each and every American person to vote for him in the massive numbers in which they did.

It seemed as though most all of the American press – the newspapers, the Radio, and the television – were positively focusing on what Romney said he was going to do, and on the supposedly little that Obama had accomplished and/or done in the four previous years he worked as president.

Little was said about Obama’s killing of this nation’s number 1 enemy, bin Laden, and little was said about Obama’s saving the American economy from its near financial collapse.

Little was said about the stock market nearly doubling itself since Bush left office.

Little has been said about the unemployment rate going significantly down while he has been in the office of the presidency.

In fact, not much was said about Obama want to increase the taxes the VERY rich will pay, he is in favor of “pro-choice” legislation, he is not in favor of reducing requirements for off shore drilling, he supports same-sex marriage, and many other concepts.

While the thoughts and concepts of Mitt Romney opposed all of those issues just mentioned, these positions got little play in the press,

I don’t believe that most of the press – especially FOX – ever focused upon what the very real issue was against Barack Obama/

Supposedly he wasn’t born in the United States.

Supposedly he isn’t a United States citizen.

Supposedly he is a :socialist,”

No one opposing Barack Obama, however, told the truth:

He is a Black man!!!

The election just past would supposedly tell the American public something rather important about themselves, but it didn’t; it supposedly explained to the National Republican Party that they are doing something very. very wrong, but it has failed to do so; and it supposedly caused the beginning of a change very much for the better in all politicians. philosophically, for all clear-thinking politicians of every political party in the United States.
The TEA Party is the key to understanding this.
The TEA Party came into visible existence during the 2010 Republican sweep.

They won so very many seats in the House of Representatives that the Republican Party won control of the House, but the TEA Party members gained rather firm control of the Republican Party there, as well.

Indeed, since that time they have run TEA Party members against Regular Republican in primary races in a substantial number of places, as the ousted Senator from Indiana - Richard Lugar - can regretfully testify to.

It is now rather apparent that the TEA Party doesn’t want to join forces with the Republican Party at all, but instead TO COMPLETLEY CONTROL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!

The TEA Party still says NO NEW TAXES!

The TEA Party suggests that the needed funds may be garnered by taking money from Medicade and Medicare, and other domestic programs, all of which currently dramatically help the middle and lower classes of Americans. Nor does the TEA Party say how the needs of these people would be met in the future given no new taxes.

They are, quite literally, totally devoid of any intelligent ideas!

As more and more Americans become aware of this paucity of intellectual cognition, the popularity of the Republican Party is going to continue to diminish, if it doesn’t split into two parties first.

But that is another article. So………

I firmly believe that this country’s historians are making a classical mistake by totally ignoring the relevant teachings of the late American motivational psychologist, Dr. Abraham Maslow,(Ph.D.)
Maslow postulated that each human’s behavior was determined by which one of Maslow’s five Basic Need Levels the individual finds him/herself functioning on at the moment.

These five Need Levels include: Physical Needs, Safety Needs, the Need for Love, the Need for esteem, and finally the Need for Self Actualization.

These five Needs are in a hierarchy. In other words, a person who is starving to death won’t be enticed by a shiny new car, but he will be very interested in a ham sandwich. And the same is true regarding the other Need Levels.

I offer you the following for a clearer understanding of the five Need Levels:

1. Physical Needs: The need for oxygen, for food, for water, for warmth. The Need for most anything which is necessary for human survival.

2. The Need to proceed at a reasonable speed along a winding road, staying away from a very steep cliff, to not play with loaded guns, and others.

3. Love and Belongingness is the third Need Level, and it is here that a person will seek out approval and acceptance for his or her actions and/or opinions

4. Esteem is the next Need Level. What are the things which make you feel important? Your house? Your car? The way you dress?

5. Self actualization is the highest level of functioning any human being may achieve. It is characterized by complete self satisfaction without depending upon any objects or other persons doing something to make the person in question happy, sad, mellow or whatever in some way.

If we take this personality theory and change it to a social/political theory for a moment, we may then arrive at a firm understanding of many of our worldwide social concerns and problems.

We have, here to fore, two opposing economic systems: 1 socialism/communism and 2.capitalism.
Socialism/communism involves the supposed sharing of your wealth with others in the society or nation. Capitalism, however, represents take all that you can get and screw the other guy in order to get what you want, if need be if you quite seriously want it.

If one views every Communistic/socialistic county, one must agree that the vast majority of the population there were on one of the first two levels of Maslow’s Hierarchy, and were functioning on the physical or safety need levels most of the time before they started a revolution.

On the other hand, in any society where most of the people are functioning on the third and/or fourth levels Maslow’s Hierarchy – Love and Belongingness and Esteem – Capitalism seems to rule the roust.

Following this argument then, it would have made much more scents to have supplied the Soviet Union with food, energy, building supplies, warm clothing, etc. after World War II, rather than having General George Patten publically exclaim that we ought to keep right on going to Moscow now that we have conquered the Nazis – particularly since we were the only country in the world with the A-Bomb at the time.

In my mind, there is little wonder then that they constructed the “Iron Curtain back following WWII. Now, however, and very regrettably, we are doing the very same kind of thing to Iran

It is long past time that our men and women dressed in a military uniform, and those who work in the Defense Department but wear civilian clothes, began to use their heads for something more that HAT RACKS!

“Right”“Left,”“Democrat”“Repub lican,”“Liberal”“Conservative, ”“Capitalist”“Socialist” these are all words that are in the newspapers and on television most every day now, and almost all Americans are sick and tired of hearing them over and over again and again!

It is a constant battle between the two philosophical positions, with a never ending conflict in sight.

Here in the United States, our government goes from being one sided to the other: from being too Liberal” to being too “Conservative.” And we seem to be in the middle of a rather “dramatic change philosophies right at the moment.

This nation seems to be moving from a very “Conservative” position to a rather “Liberal” one. The election just past validates this point.
Obama won the presidency – again - even though

Romney was favored; the Democrats picked up a couple of seats in the U.S. Senate, even though the so called experts said the Republicans might win control of that chamber, and the Democrats actually picked up several seats in the House of Representatives, even though those same so-called wise men were predicting otherwise.

The Republicans, however, since the election, don’t seem to understand that they lost, and lost rather badly.

And watching the various news broadcasts it is now very much apparent that while the Republicans all agree that something is very wrong with their party, it seems that no two of them can agree with each other as to just how to fix it. The Republicans are heading for major loses in the 2014 elections a little over a year from now.

And if one views an American history book critically, one will quickly understand that this country has vacillated from one position to the other ever since Adams and Jefferson opposed one another in the late 1700’s.

The LOSERS in all this unadulterated nonsense is “We, the People….”!

What is badly needed is a new and intelligent political party in this country.

Honesty, Honor, Integrity, Morals, Mercy and Grace have been pushed to the side.

Our Elected Representatives have forgotten they serve us. We pay them to do their jobs and they choose to elevate themselves above their service levels and use American tax dollars for their own personal agendas.

The constitution wasn’t designed to ignore or go around; it was created as law, the rock our country was built upon.

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

America is a Republic for the “Citizens of the United States of America” not the entire world. How can a country so divided Unite?

ok doc either you are being quite facetious or you do not watch the news very much. I'm not trying to draw you into some pointless debate or argument as your political and personal beliefs show strong in everything you write. I admire your commentary and find myself fascinated by it at times. If you truly don't know who he is google his name or go to YouTube and watch him there.
