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.

Two Late Comments - FairTax Ambushed & Alphabetically A Through Y Why BO Should Not Be Reelected

Below are two late comments that I present because they add to the discussion of the two subject messages.  I don't know FairTaxer, a fellow blogger, who must have picked up the posting from the internet like so many commenters do.  The second comment is from a subscriber to ReturnToExcellence.net who took up my challenge of refuting the numbers game re BO's reelection chances.
---FairTax Ambushed---
FairTaxer (http://fairtaxer.wordpress.com/) has left a new comment on your post "FairTax Ambushed":

In addition to the "unbiased" hearing it was given where, as you mentioned, many Democrats already had an unfavorable opinion of it, did you notice how the seats (nearly filled in the beginning) gradually emptied as time rolled on? It's like "I'm done making my attacks, I don't need to hear anything more."

It's sick the way these corrupt politicians work. Every one of them need to be voted out immediately, but as you also alluded to, we don't have the grassroots movement needed to do that at this point.

The only thing I can say is keep trudging along. We'll eventually get there; as long as we don't give up.

Thanks for this article, I look forward to more from you. Please check out my blog and follow me on twitter @TXFairTaxer

I must disagree. Not that Obama WILL be beaten, but that he can be...Yes, it's all about numbers, but its the numbers that actually go out and vote...Further, its about the numbers in about 10 (swing) states...sorry, 40 states are accounted for, and won't play in the campaign. Sure, money matters, but since Obama won't have much good to sell, he'll have to go totally negative; that could be over kill. Very few people who voted for McCain will now vote for Obama...so the question is, are enough swing voters, from swing states, angry enough to change their votes....just maybe...
