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.

Another Enemy Of America Unmasked

To get a good idea of what we are facing to hold on to the America we grew up in below are two real life accounts in NJ of what is happening @ town hall meetings throughout the country. We hear about Acorn & MoveOn on the news but they come vividly to life below. The first account (my comment in red) is from a member of our group who is a FairTax NJ District Director & the second is from another FairTax supporter. Both messages pertain to town hall meetings held by Congressman Frank Pallone of District #6. Neither writer is from District #6 but went to the meetings to support the FairTax District Director of District #6. Pallone is graded "F" by the National Taxpayers Union with a rating of voting in favor of the taxpayer 7% of the time. Pallone is just another enemy of America holding public office that has been clearly unmasked by the town hall meetings this August.

---Report From Pallone Town Hall Meeting---

John O'Rourke and I attended Frank Pallone's Town hall meeting in Red Bank this evening. Well over one thousand people attended, (2 sessions were held). We handed out some FairTax brochures and papers etc. Several people came up to me and made the comment that they loved "The FairTax" but it will never pass.

I took that as a positive in the sense that name recognition appears to be taking hold. I explained that I believe it will come to pass when we get rid of the current crop of office holders. I add that it will pass in five minutes when everyone knows about it & helps spread the word to their elected representatives.

The meetings main topic of course was the Health Care bill. All I can say is that if NJ's politicians are all the caliber of Pallone, we are in serious trouble. How this man was elected to Congress is a mystery.

It just reaffirmed my belief that we have got to work at having a candidate run in every district.


Bravo! I went to his Piscataway town hall which was loaded with bused in Acorn and Moveon.org supporters who dominated the front rows and the questions. FairTax doesn't have a chance with this guy in office. He was caught on tape speaking with his allies, getting tipped off about the rest of us. It is interesting to watch and will make you mad. If interested, go to conservative blogger for a video.


  1. Fairtax sounded great to me too -- till I read the fine print.

    See how Fairtax spokesmen try to explain away the trillion dollar fine print.



  2. Seeker refers in his links to a "conversation with a FairTax spokesman" that never took place.
