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.

Primer - Tea Party Replacements Needed

A typical response to the subject message was "Average young person does not care about the country running deficits - all they want is more and more. They do not care where it comes from."

To oppose the above all too prevalent attitude that many Tea Party candidates elected in 2010 agreed with once they got to Washington - below is an excellent response (actually a primer) to the subject message re what it takes to be effective in politics today if you are campaigning on limited government, personal responsibility, & free enterprise.  The writer is a long time subscriber who was one that encouraged me to write the blog – she is a committeewoman, mother of a small child, wife of a small business owner, a FairTax supporter, & a person I have tremendous respect for.  Anyone who lives in Middlesex County that would like to help her, as indicated in her message, just let me know & I will put you in touch with her.  The principles listed below are not just limited to Middlesex County, NJ.

---Primer For Tea Party Candidates---


IMHO, People should be attending Leadership Institute bootcamps and other GOTV training type events....NOW.   http://www.leadershipinstitute.org

This year I saw Tea Parties and Tea Party candidates making the very same mistakes the establishment Republicans have made in the past. Mistakes like: Failure to do research on their voting districts/base. Failure to canvass and recruit motivated voters and volunteers. Failure to communicate their message. Taking the year off and not getting to work until after Labor Day.

Guess what? Work for EVERY election begins the day after Election Day the year before ...if not earlier. They should take lessons from Anna Little and "Anna's Army" (which consisted mostly of Bayshore Tea Party members). ***They should look to towns like Old Bridge, which successfully defeated deeply entrenched Democrats for a landslide victory...AND DO WHAT THEY DID, and DO IT BETTER. Work harder, work faster, work more effectively.***

The only reason Anna came as close as she did last year was because of her own effectiveness and hard work as a candidate and the effectiveness and hard work of her volunteers. The only reason she lost last year is because too many establishment Republicans were once again lazy, flatfooted, and just plain stubborn and sour grapes, infighting among themselves as they always do, worrying about "what's in it for them" (just like corrupt members of the Democrat party) instead of fighting the common enemy...and because Middlesex County had not developed a strong grassroots volunteer army or Tea Party, as Monmouth County had done.

We're working hard in Middlesex County to get people aware and trained to be effective in elections. If you know anyone in Middlesex County who is motivated to work smart and hard to take our country back from those who would continue the entitlement state to the point of our destruction, please send them my way!  Thank you.

God bless you.

    You surely are too kind.

    Middlesex County Tea Party midcoteaparty.com has the FairTax as one of the principles it supports. Agenda 21 and Municipal Bonding are also big issues. They go hand in hand...the debt is making Americans slaves on their own land and we do not know who our "landlords" (bondholders) are. I pray we do not end up like my Irish ancestors, watching our food go to our oppressors while we do all the work....with none of the benefit. I post on Facebook in snippets and so far have submitted two pieces to the Bulldog Pundit (www.genehoyas.com) You might want to add a 600 word essay of your own from time to time. I know Gene would be happy to publish thoughtful well written treatises.
