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.

2012 FairTax Post Office Event Report

Earlier tonight I sent a detailed report thanking everyone in NJ who participated in the subject project this year.  As usual I found that passing out FairTax pocket cards @ post offices on or around tax filing day reaches the most fertile group of people possible regarding being favorably disposed toward the FairTax.  It is not easy work participating in these events but it is oh so rewarding.  One man in Somerville told me he had just mailed an envelope to the IRS containing a check for over $3,000 – he said he doesn't know what "they" do with the money.  Several other people told me similar stories.  What does this tell you?  What should those of us who know better being doing?
The final tally for 2012 in NJ is 1,597 FairTax pocket cards being handed out @ post offices (there is one more PO captain I have not heard from).  This brings the total number of FairTax pocket cards handed out in NJ, from the post office project alone, to over 11,500 since the project's inception.  I am humbled by everyone's effort & support & can only say thank you by letting you know of my sincere appreciation of your work & friendship.  It is outstanding.
Below is a copy of both sides of the new FairTax pocket card recently updated by FairTax national in Houston.  I used this version in the Somerville Post Office event.  Please let me know if you would like to secure a supply of this card for your own activities.  The next six months of 2012 is very timely in educating our fellow citizens about the most important piece of legislation in our lifetime for America – The FairTax Act of 2011.
