About

Mike4Mike is where I will collect news and information about the upcoming election. The slant will be in favor of candidates with the best platform for strengthing America’s families and American freedom, to restore faith in government and redeem our image around the world. I will also discuss the mood of the country, as I see it, and what a winning candidate will have to do to address those concerns. But for it to be a discussion, I’ll need your help. I’ll post any reasonable and on-topic discussion.

This Mike has a degree in Public Administration and 25+ years service to our country managing Air Force product development and strategic planning. Although I was never in the military, as a civilian employee, I went out of my way to become a graduate of Air Command and Staff College and Air War College, and have a good understanding of what’s important to our military forces and of the way Government works.

    Hi Mike,

    I came across your blog after you left a comment on mine (http://www.afterw.org). I know we may be political adversaries but I am not the type who takes these things personally or tries to disparage others. In fact I think there is certainly a lot to like about Mike, and I appreciate good, compelling arguments like yours even when I might disagree on some points.

    In the interest of building readership for both of our sites I am writing to propose an exchange of links. I’d love to link to you from the home page of my site if you’d do the same in return.

    Let me know what you think.

    A blogger name Daisy asked how old I was, questioning my veracity. Here’s what I told her:

    When I was in college, we sang along with the protest songs. We agreed with the message, because it was a different era and the leadership really was corrupt (not like the current president, who is merely incompetent with incompetent advisers clueless about how to run a peacekeeping operation).

    I was a radical at the time, studied socialism and Marx, read “The Right of Revolution”, got a degree in 20th century history, and worked as a Democrat party activist and in the (Teddy) Kennedy for President campaign. The world changed and I watched the protests lose out.

    We grew up, all of us, and learned that “freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose,” unless we ourselves took personal action to make our own lives better.

    We learned that the only way to effect change was from within. I got my Masters and joined the Government and learned what it took to make a difference. I have personally saved the taxpayers a couple Billion dollars by my hard work, without needing to send a press release. My community is better for my activism there, and I don’t need self-serving children who only know the CD re-release of a song to tell me what it was like.

    In the final analysis, as a student of history and government and society for over 30 years, is that life never gets better – long term – living off “the man’s” promises, but only when “guvernment” stays out of my pocket. (That’s why I support McCain, not Obama.)

    (BTW: I’m not personally a redneck, but my cousins are, as I grew up in town but they stayed on the Oklahoma farm. Are you old enough to remember why “M is for the mudflaps on my pickup, O is for the oil upon my hair…”?)

    Thanks Aarika. I’m also a government insider, having saved the taxpayers a couple billion, plus bringing critical technology to help fight both Gulf wars. The critical skill is thinking different about the process. That’s why I support innovation in politics, instead of blindly supporting policy wonks playing the insiders’ game.
