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.

Responses - An Inspirational Meeting

My sincere thanks to everyone who responded to the subject message re the FairTax meeting my mother-in-law organized & paid for out of her own pocket.  Below are just some of the responses I received that I am truly grateful for.
You never know what will develop from such events.  One woman in attendance who has great interest in the FairTax has eleven children & plans to pass the word on to every one of them.  Naturally I will help her in every way I can.  She also took the FairTax DVD & is going to pass it around.
The easy part of all this was mine in giving the seminar.  My mother-in-law did the real work as all of you who organize such events know.
1.  Amen, my friend. God bless your lovely Mother, always. She sets a fine example.  During the Lonegan campaign I had seniors (60+, so I'm including some of the older "Boomers" in this) tell me "I'm retired" or "I'm on my way out" as an excuse not to be politically interested or involved - even when I reminded them this is for the sake of their beloved grandchildren.  There is hope, and it resides with ALL of us, not just our children. God bless your Mom for showing us.
2.  Well, good for her, you and Carol. It proves you are never too old to make a difference.  Thanks for sharing that and God bless,
3.  Great looking group! Yes, inspirational...she is to be applauded for her enthusiasm and spirit after all she has been through.
4.  Congratulations on what appears to have been a super meeting and kudos to your mother-in-law!!!
5.  Your mother-in-law seems to be a very strong person - having two life threatening operations.  She has many more years to live.
6.  You are a very good Son-in-Law.  Glad to hear Carol's mom is doing well.  Great photo
7.  God bless her and great job, Doug.
