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 - First - We Have To Wake Up

Responses & comments to the subject message that transmitted the Michael Medved piece that provided a breakdown of voting groups that showed BO is in good position to win the 2012 presidential election came in all over the lot.  Below are three of the Responses.  Responder #1 thinks that things are "not as dire as Medved states" & Responder #2 thinks "he is so right."  Responder #2 also agrees with the original message solution to the problem of finding rock solid congressional candidates like Jim DeMint has been doing in finding Tea Party candidates to the consternation of the establishment Republican Party.
Forgetting Medved's analysis & statistics for a second - just look @ some common sense points.  Although President Reagan won an electoral college landslide he lost 40% of the popular vote - I have used this as my starting point since 1984.  We would be fine if the 1984 mindset had continued but a government dependent expansion program was reinvigorated since then & we have slipped @ least two stages in Death Of Democracy to the "apathy to dependence" stage meaning that more than 40% of the electorate is dependent on government programs.  Currently up to 70% of the people on the working rolls pay little or none of the total income tax burden & a large voter turnout is in the 60% range @ most.  Now if a community organizer of BO's skills sees the sense in trying to get this other 40% of people to the polls just who do you think they will vote for?

While I understand the necessity of keeping the troops from becoming complacent, I think the reality is not as dire as Medved states.  First, an inordinate number of blacks showed up in '08.  Many of them are now disgruntled at the stands Obama has taken.  Some have told me they would not vote for him again by either not voting at all or voting for an 'acceptable' Republican.
I am not sure where this influx of Latino voters is coming from.  Most legal Latinos do not support the illegals (as if that is the only issue they are concerned about).  Most are very religious and family oriented, ideals the Dems don't hold dear.  The illegals may be vocal, but, as of today, they are not allowed to vote.  But with motor voter, ACORN and the rest, I am sure many have registered illegally.  Surprise.
---Response #2---
This is the scariest thing I've read but he is so right.  Those of us who believe in our Constitutional Republic form of government have our work cut out for us. Since BO and his cronies will likely be around for at least 2 more years and possibly 6, we have to work even harder on getting the right people in Congress and weeding out the career politicians who after so many years in office think they own it and can do whatever they want and get away with it.  

I sent your link to some of the people at the PRO and some friends. Do you know if any of them have subscribed?    I'll be sending this one as well in the hope that if they haven't yet, they will subscribe.
---Response #3---
I always said in a matter of years the Hispanics will decide elections.  Why? - they are the fastest growing segment of U.S. population.  I did not expect them to make a difference this fast because many do not vote now.  But they can change sooner if their "leaders" put on a drive to register them as voters.
What do you think? - I think you know what I think.
