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.

Chris Christie Has No Opinion On Obamacare!

  Last night I sent the message below to our NJ members only.  Although it is specifically meant for NJ it really applies to all states - should they join the fight taken up by over 14 other states and challenge the unconstitutional provisions of Obamacare!  You would be wise to find out if your state does not take up the fight - but then again if they don't you know why already.

Below is a message from Steve Lonegan that I am sending to NJ members only.  Any one who still thinks the Republicans are the answer to our problems should look @ this one carefully.  In the fall of 2009 I said that six months after the election we would not be able to tell if Corzine or Christie was NJ Gov - we are ahead of schedule.

Governor Christie in the Crosshairs on Obamacare

"It's a 2,500-page bill. We would like to act in a way that is informed. And from my perspective, given the transition and that I haven't been living with this issue for a year, I want to make sure I get fully informed by my attorney general and by my commissioner of health, which I've asked for them to give me advice. When they do, then I'll consider whether or not we need to take any legal action." -Governor Christie

Amazingly, that was Governor Christie's response when asked if his administration would join the fight taken up by over 14 other states and challenge the unconstitutional provisions of Obamacare!

After 8 long months of contentious debate, it's hard to believe that Governor Christie is uninformed about two of the worst provisions of Washington's government takeover of health care - the individual mandate and the burdensome Medicaid mandate that would cost New Jersey taxpayers billions of dollars.

Now, he claims he needs advice from two supporters of the government takeover in his cabinet before making up his mind -- his newly appointed Commissioner of Health & Senior Services, Poonam Alaigh, and his Attorney General Paula Dow.

AFP recently opposed Alaigh's nomination. We have shown that Dr. Alaigh is an Obamacare supporter who refused to be forthcoming with us on her views on these very issues when she repeatedly refused to respond to our health care survey. Alaigh was also a donor to the Senate campaign of Congressman Frank Pallone, one of the co-sponsors of the House health care bill.

Paula Dow is also a supporter of left-wing causes, whose first action as Attorney General was to support Governor Corzine's 'one gun a month' rationing law.

You and I cannot allow Governor Christie to not defend our rights because he is taking "advice" from Obamacare supporters in his cabinet! You and I have fought too hard and too long to let that happen.

Governor Christie needs to hear from you now. Click here to sign our petition - demand that the Governor direct his Attorney General to join these lawsuits and protect our rights!

On to Victory,

Steve Lonegan
State Director



  1. signed. I know you feel like I do. I am sick and tired of so called "moderates" who define themselves that way because they position in the middle of the spectrum even as the spectrum moves ever left.

  2. So far, IL has not challenged the unconstitutional provisions of Obamacare...and.....I don't see a challenge in the near future...not a surprise!

  3. So I guess my question does not need to be answered. I knew the answer beforehand but just wanted to ask. Now I know
    SPINELESS. Thank you
