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.

KO BO Responses - Alphabetically A Through Y Why BO Should Not Be Reelected

For everyone who thanked me (really Bret Stephens) for providing "the food needed to argue points of interest to the FB crowd" you missed the point of the original message as many others saw it including me.  Much closer to the mark was "The Z for zero is so disheartening....surely someone will come forward to step into the ring and KO BO!"

As any regular reader of Global View knows Bret Stephens is as much against BO's completion of the socialization of America as anyone I know & yet after providing reasons alphabetically A through Y for why BO should not be reelected  he concludes his dynamic column by writing  "Z is for zero, which is the likelihood that one of the current GOP hopefuls will defeat Mr. Obama in 2012."

Why is this?

The answers is simply a numbers game for our country that is in the "apathy to dependence" stage of the Death Of Democracy.  Wealth creators are plainly outnumbered compared to those who want to redistribute wealth & I believe that, like me, Mr. Stephens believes this also.  The class(less) warfare pitting millionaires & billionaires making over $200,000 per year against middle class people who can not make ends meet resonates with far too many people I know.

Democrats outnumber Republicans 39 to 27.  Independents are currently breaking against BO 3 to 2.  This is the good news which might make the election close if this was all there was.

Blacks, Hispanics, & single mothers overwhelmingly voted for BO in 2008.  Millenials, defined as (young) people who are the first to come of age in the new millennium, voted for BO in 2008 better than 2 to 1 & there is no reason to believe that they will not continue this way & their size is larger four years later.  A
round forty percent of the millennial generation is African American, Latino, Asian or of a racially-mixed background that totals around 80 million people – not all of whom are voting age yet.   

There is another group that has started to gain notice lately – the 51% of households (not people or income earners) who do not pay any income taxes.  I add to this the 20% of households who do not pay enough income tax that any of reasons A through Y in Mr. Stephens piece means enough to them that they would vote against BO.

But the worst part (for us) is the power of BO's community organization skills following the Alinsky Method explained in Rules For Radicals.  If he can organize all of the above groups that see a reason to vote for him plus tens of thousands of people who have not given one thought to any of this but can be organized & controlled to vote BO's way the election comes to the zero likelihood of BO's defeat that Bret Stephens described in his column.  You can also add to BO's list Tea Party people under 55 who finally realized that some of their entitlements are the ones needed to be cut.

As the economy becomes worse & worse everyday with more people becoming government dependents I present the above type of information to you & hope it is important to you.  If it is I recommend that you redouble your efforts, & then some, because the numbers are stacked very high against us.


  1. The last figure I saw of people getting some kind of Gov. assistance is 51% - that is quite a voting block.

  2. Very good article. Another thing going for Obama, he has amassed a very large war chest to use in his re-election campaign. Repub. need a person with a known name and who will outline some things he would do as Pres. to give Obama a fight in the election. A person not known, will in my estimation not win.

    IF ECONOMY IMPROVES another PLUS for Obama.

    He is a good speaker who says nothing. As a economist - he rates near zero, no knowledge of the subject. But he overcomes this drawback by talking, saying things that appear to be positive - and that is what the public wants to hear.
