About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Woodbridge Tea Party Report

Yesterday the subject Tea Party was held in the rain.  Attendance was between 150 to 200 people.  As many of you know I was invited to speak on the FairTax @ the Tea Party.  My sincere thanks to all of the members of our e-mail club who showed up & passed out FairTax Pocket Cards & answered questions from the attendees who I found to be very knowledgeable about the FairTax to begin with.  Above are two photos of Alan Keyes & me - each during our respective speeches.
During my speech I mentioned that Alan Keyes, the guest of honor, was a very big supporter of the FairTax & he confirmed that during his electrifying speech.
The organizer of the Tea Party was Jim Poesl, Independent candidate in NJ's 19th District For Assembly, who also is a big FairTax supporter.  Carol explained to Jim the work being done in Missouri & SC re state level FairTax legislation & Jim was very receptive to the idea for NJ so he is an important candidate for FairTax NJ to win elective office.
I have gotten to know these people after working closely with them on both the Perth Amboy & Woodbridge Tea Parties.  Any one living in NJ's 19th should take a good look & consider voting for Jim Poesl.  Like Steve Lonegan he is working his heart out for NJ - I can explain it best by saying that he is an Alan Keyes conservative.  There are six candidates running for two Assembly seats & Jim hopes that he & Republican Richard Piatkowski, who organized the Perth Amboy Tea Party & also is a man of substance, win.
I bring this up to people who do not live in NJ because it is important for all of us to find candidates who live & will govern by the principles that our country was founded on.  This was also one of Dr. Keyes main points in his speech.  Neither of the two main party candidates for governor of NJ fit this bill & I can't imagine any one @ the Tea Party voting for either one of them.
BTW, all of this is so thoroughly bred in him that when Jim Poesl spells his name he says P, O, E, S as in Steve, L as in Lonegan.
