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.

Heartfelt Responses That I Share

The heartfelt responses to the last series of messages re the November presidential election & the quality (or lack thereof) of the Republican candidates has been overwhelming.  Here are a few – two directed @ The Historian.  My comments are in red below.

Doug, do you think there is any chance at all that one of the people who can really do the job will step forward at the last minute? You are so right in saying that we do not have a candidate to go up against BO....would someone like Jim DeMint step up to the bat at sometime between now and Nov 6 and hit a home run? I think I am feeling down after watching the FL debate tonight.
Carol & I share your frustration with the B team. In fact I don't think the so-called A team is much, if any, better. This is the most destructive campaign I have ever seen – BO is just sitting there taking notes. Earlier tonight Larry Kudlow could barely stand interviewing Newt. I don't know one person in SC who did not vote for Newt last Saturday – I don't know how they feel now.
Our only chance is for a brokered convention where someone like Jim DeMint comes forward & even then it depends on how far gone the country is. In 2008 I waited for McCain to ask Sarah Palin to run with him. I voted for Palin not McCain so a very strong VP selection will help.
You are doing the right thing in supporting Senator Sam McCann. If we don't win the presidency we must take advantage of our constitutional republic & have in place every patriotic Mayor, Councilman, Congressman, & State Senator that we can to ward off BO's thrust. As Bret Stephens wrote we can also hope for the Supreme Court to overturn BOCare & for us to take over the senate. All of this will slow BO down. We will get our cue if Hillary then wins in 2016 – @ that point we are almost assuredly gone if she wins. It would take a John Galt figure to bring us back & I do believe he is out there. Freedom is fragile – we had George Washington & President Reagan. We need one more.

This is so true! It really speaks to my hope for a shining knight to come forward to rescue us....we are running with losers...good way to put it!

Good afternoon Doug and Carol,
Even though I have not been in close contact recently I still read your comments each day.  More importantly I store much of the information in the files located between my ears.
If you have concerns with the words First Community Organizer please feel free to replace them.
In response to The Historian
If there are such Republicans who truly believe that this course of action would result in a more prosperous future for our county, I say please remove these people from any elected position.
Another four years of The First Community Organizer of the White House will certainly lead to the train coming off the track.........and it will resemble the path taken in the movie
The Fugitive........with Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones.
While I agree the candidates are taking turns playing Russian roulette with a full chamber the course offered in The Historian's words can only bring more nightmares to my slumber.

The Historian... They will blame republicans no matter what happens, if it is good they blame for something else.
Forget the politics and the recovery must start. OMG - I agree. What was it Lady Thatcher said?
Socialism is great until you run out of other peoples' money.
