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.

Responses - A Separation Of Economics & State

Below are three varied responses to the subject message that pertained to unemployment, the Stimulus, & how to unleash the free enterprise capitalistic system to create jobs & wealth. Keep your eyes on BO's "jobs summit" planned for Thursday to see if any of the free enterprise methods detailed in the original message are even discussed - in other words will we have a separation of economics & state or will we have the continuation of a centrally planned (against competition) low growth high unemployment economy?

Response # 1 comes from a subscriber to ReturnToExcellence.net & makes an excellent point re sole proprietors or partners in a small business.

You don't have to be a reader of these messages very long to notice that the writer of Response # 3 did not make, as it applies to me, careful use of possessive pronouns.

---Response # 1---

I can tell you from our experiences things are not getting any better.

Don't forget that when small business owners shutdown their businesses they cannot receive unemployment benefits.

Since my company deals directly with small business owners, I can tell you that they are nearly ALL, and I do mean nearly ALL, right on the edge of shutting down. Only pride and the fact that they cannot get unemployment benefits keep them hanging on. Also, for many of them, having their business open or closed doesn't change the property tax equation.

Thanks for your continued efforts to keep us all informed.

---Response # 2---


I believe this article represents one of your finest writings. Will our grandchildren know prosperity or poverty?

---Response # 3---

Entrepreneurs do create those jobs, but your Pres. is doing everything he can to discourage them by adding big health care increases and increasing the amount of money entrepreneurs pay in taxes.

All your Pres. does is spend money that we do not have on different programs, hoping that they can cure the economy. People who are behind in mortgage payments? - govt will give money to their mortgage firms not to foreclose on their homes. This only prolongs the problem.

Next year govt will be on big spending project to create thousands and thousands of jobs. Will it work??
