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.

AFP Attacked In DC

Thanks to Steve Lonegan for sending this intense message below depicting attacks & events from last week-end's AFP conference in Washington DC that vividly shows the disorder & lawlessness of the Occupy DC protesters.  These type of groups are using our Constitution & values we cherish as weapons against us.  Stick with as much of the videos & write-ups as you can stand – they are very intense - to see what is coming to the rest of America if people of substance do not put it down quickly.



"Occupy" Movement Launches Vicious Attacks on AFPF

Dear Doug,

If you weren't there you wouldn't have believed it yourself. As thousands of patriots gathered for AFP Foundation's Defending the American Dream® Summit on Friday night, the leftist fringe launched unprecedented attacks on our members.

This band of malcontents stormed the DC Convention Center in an outrageous attempt to blockade the exits. As attendees at the summit tried to leave, "Occupy DC" thugs locked arms just outside the doors so that people could not walk out. One of those attendees was 78- year old Dolores Broderson who had come to our summit all the way from Detroit, Michigan; an 11-hour bus ride.

As Dolores tried to exit the DC Convention Center, she was knocked down to the ground by the "Occupy DC" throng, suffering injuries to her hand and ankle.

In the video below you will see the incident in which Dolores was knocked to the ground by this lawless gang of agitators. Not only that, you will see how they tried to block a man with a two-year old in his car from driving home. And how they verbally assaulted Daily Caller reporter Michelle Fields. (Caution: Contains some vulgar language)

Click here to listen to Dolores and other activists give their account of the incident – including how no one from law enforcement came to their aid.

Read Michelle Fields' stunning account here as she tells why she will never try to cover the "Occupy" thugs again.

Before the "Occupy DC" protestors decided to turn violent, our Communications Director Mike Proto bravely went amongst them as they marched around the block unstopped by law enforcement. Mike took a number of photos of "Occupy DC" radicals holding all kinds of signs with venomous and hateful rhetoric.

Despite the attempts by these far left hooligans to disrupt our summit, the event was an immense success. Thousands of concerned citizens made the trip to Washington, D.C., including nearly one hundred of you from right here in New Jersey!

As I noted at the New Jersey Delegation Breakfast, we have accomplished a lot together in the past year promoting conservative principles in our state.

The fact of the matter is the "Occupy" crowd is losing. They are losing because of so many of you, hard-working taxpayers and concerned citizens, are willing to stand up for the cause of liberty.

For that, I can't thank you all enough!

On To Victory, 


Steve Lonegan

  1. OWS is funded by global Socialist and/or Marxist leaning organizations. Let’s call them ‘statist political supporters’. They would love to create an environment of near anarchy. They view this as a means to their end – toppling of capitalism. The DC event was part of their strategy. Similar to DC is the OWS Oakland riot last week; I think it was even more ominous than the DC event. Very disconcerting was the Oakland government’s response which was to placate OWS and for some even to support OWS. Let’s place the Oakland government also in the ‘statist political support’ camp. Below are my observations of OWS Oakland last week which I posted on IBD past weekend:
    Saul Alinsky would be very happy with OWS (especially Oakland version) and their statist political supporters. Their goal is to destroy capitalism and current government. The Oakland government is loaded with statists who along with OWS would love to replace current system with socialism and Marxism. Call this their version of creative destruction: destroy semi statist government and replace it with a more powerful one. And BO is an Alinsky disciple. I would not be surprised if he is calling some of the shots.
