Bullock....what now?

Post by wbtfg » Tue Dec 03, 2019 5:22 pm

So now that Bullock has finally ended his presidential bid, which never got off the ground in the first place, where does he go now? Obviously he's our governor for the next year or so, but what next? I assume he won't run for senate. Is he positioning himself for a cabinet position? Will he follow the Marc Racicot path of working for a big money lobbying firm in DC? Will he seemingly disappear, other than serving on a few board of directors, like Brian Schweitzer?

(Note: I'd appreciate if we could keep this discussion somewhat civil and not go directly to the childish name calling, personal insults and partisan talking points.)

Getting a cabinet position was probably his original intent to begin with. However, I think it would take a miracle for any of the current Democrat candidates to become president.

Does Bullock have a law degree? I could see him joining a prestigious law firm in the state if he does.

Amazing at the number that had tossed their hats into the ring. Slowly they are winnowing down as they realize no one wants what they are selling...

I sure hope he does, he was Attorney General before governor!

I see him looking for a cabinet position if the Dems win next year. If that doesn't pan out, cataholic is probably right, he'll join a law firm.

I completely forgot about that. Hard to believe that was 8 years ago. I just googled it and he has a law degree from Columbia. It is very possible that he may join a national firm with that degree, or do something similar to what Racicot did in Washington.

I have to disagree some in that I think there are plenty that want what they are selling, after all they always promise to take from someone else to give to those that vote for them, so most are blinded by their own greed to see who the puppeteers are and what history shows us will happen with that (there has never been a socialist society that worked, including the hippy colonies of the 60's - just how many of them are thriving today). Most every liberal agenda is purchased this way (for votes) and can be tied to the Marxist Saul Alinsky and a) overloading the system and/or b) breaking up society into factions (i.e. divide and conquer).

Saul Alinsky was the ideological mentor of B. Obama and H. Clinton, and here is a peek at what they are really about. In addition to the 13 Rules For Radicals, I find the following about how to create a socialist state most interesting.
How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:
There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

1. Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.

2. Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible; poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3. Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4. Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5. Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).

6. Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

7. Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the government and schools.

8. Class Welfare – Divide the people into the ......wealthy and the poor. This will cause more disconnect, and it will be easier to take (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
The above about creating a socialist state: http://www.kegley-inc.com/8-levels-cont ... l-alinsky/
Included the Rules for Radicals as well: https://bolenreport.com/saul-alinskys-1 ... -radicals/


Socialism - the financial model historically used to control the masses! It has noting to do with
freedom, and seriously erodes the primary constitutional freedom of free enterprise.
