SORT BY Relevancy
In our series of candidates for the MA governor job, Dr. Don Berwick is the peditrician, who morphed into a manager/executive and ws tapped by the President to head the Medicare and Medicaid program. Now he has big plans to revolutionize Massachusetts as governor.
He has an impressive set of accomplishments. We'll speak with him instead about his several big goals. You can get the details of problems and solutions from his campaign site here.
We surely won't go all wonky though. Son of a rural Connecticut GP, he often frames his policies in plain talk. Listen for a metaphor about not passing a car stuck on the sdie of the road. He has specific ideas for fixing big problems. He also couches the solutions in moral as well as practical terms.
Jeff Berwick thought he had fournd paradise. He was going to co-develop Galt's Gulch Chile. Instead he's lost hundreds of thousands and damaged his reputation. He says he was duped along with numerous other investors. There's a lesson in it for Jeff and for you too. Beware of the sociopath, they're lying in wait for you and for me!
We'll recap the Massachusetts party [primaries and risk humiliation predicitng the campaigns, then results for November's general. The previous day's preimary may settle all, or nearly all, Democratic contests. Now the fun begins.
The GOP pretty much sat out the primary with no contested races beyond Governor, only five statewide candidates, and mostly blank ballot lines. Dems in contrast had three battling for most slots.
Republicans play delusion cards. Dems far outnumber them (not really true, as over half the electorate does not enroll in any party), Republ;ican Governor/LG are essential to holding wildly lefty Dems in check (so-so, with many in both houses here fiscally conservative and hard sells on legislation). The GOP can't fill their tickets because they are at such political disadvantage (not so, as half our Governors have been Republican, the GOP has as much and often more campaign cash, they make little effort to convert the unenrolled to their party, and they have weak recruiting efforts for candidates for office).
We'll talk results and futures. We expect two months of big platform and policy distinctions. We'll predict how dirty the ads and claims will be and what should make the differences in the final.
Jeff Berwick of DollarVigilante.com returns to the Financial Survival Network hotseat. Jeff will be speaking at the 2nd Liberty Mastermind Symposium in Las Vegas, February 21st & 22nd. We hope to see you there with us!
In this latest installment, Jeff discussed:
The IMF’s proposed “wealth tax” in 2014;
The Krazy Krugman Keynesian Counterfitters, and their mad money printing schemes driving us towards hyperinflation;
The gradual “waking up” of the masses to our inflationary future;
The dangers of 2014: Foreign Account Tax Compliance Ac
Ryan and Mike will settle your mind. The MA Dems went to the state party convention in Worcester. Everything ws settled (as in official nominees emerged) and nothing was settled (as in the per-office primaries still contested). Plus the guvernatorial nominee is not the heavy favorite in polling against Dem, GOP and indy candidates.
TBD is the acronym for 2014 September and November.
We've had many of the hopefuls here (check our archives). Hey, we also have our opinions, both expert and gut.
We'll try to sort out Grossman (governor endorsee) v. Coakley (poll favorite) v. Berwick (progressive's delight) v. the others. (Don't leave off McCormick, our all-time show-listen leader.) This will be great political theater this season.
The down ballot, particularly the attorney general, will be at least as spirited (you can listen to both Healey and Tolman here).
We'll do our best to sort out the tangled skein for you.

Jeff Berwick joined us from sunny Acapulco. He's alarmed by the rapid erosion of individual rights in the US and the Western World. When a Frenchman defects to Russia for it's low taxes, you just can't ignore that. The justice department appears to have little regard for the constitutional protections that all Americans were supposedly born with. Perhaps the purported gun grab is just a diversion for what's really going on and for the next freedom busting move by the government.
