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.

Fighting America's Biggest Enemy

Just when it looked like we were going to be safe until after Labor Day the House Energy & Commerce Committee rushed to pass a Universal Healthcare bill just hours before the August recess began on Friday proving again the old axiom that your money is not safe while Congress is in session. Although BO did not get what he wanted - namely having the over $1 trillion 1,018 page healthcare reform bill passed in its entirety before the August recess - this last minute action by this committee does give him the most modest face-saving possible & keeps the door open for the issue's return in September.

Cap & Trade had already been put off until the fall & the union Card Check bill has no legs until 2010 so Universal Healthcare has emerged as BO's #1 issue. All three are ruinous for America's continued prosperity.

Most elected reps are not planning on having formal town hall meetings during the August recess but this should not stop you from letting your voice be heard if any of these issues are important to you. The treacherous speed with which the Statists had been moving all of the aforementioned bills toward becoming law has stalled somewhat. We can expect BO & the Democrat leadership to come back after the recess with a strong push to get as much as possible passed.

In an earlier message I provided links for the telephone #s of every member of the House & Senate & mentioned that it would be a good idea to keep the numbers handy because we would need them again. Click here for the link for the House & here for the link for the Senate. I have confirmed that any call to these Washington numbers on the links would result in the Member getting our messages - this is especially true if there is an overwhelming theme to the calls like stop Universal Healthcare in its tracks.

Carol recently told me in horror that America's biggest enemy has been elected President. If this & the progress made recently in stalling these bills does not make you want to fight I don't know what will.
