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 - Dede Dines Out

Below are three responses to the subject message that I selected because they are not from anyone who I had the original recent discussions with on the NJ Gubernatorial election matter. All three responses express dissatisfaction with the current electoral condition & not just in NJ.

So the question is what do we do about it? Our best hope is to get involved every chance we can to unseat BO's plans between now & Nov 2010 when we once again have a chance to find some people who earn our vote & really have the country's interest @ heart rather than merely staying in high paying, plush jobs with many perks. The same applies to solving state-level problems.

At least in NY's 23rd district those people have a real choice thanks to the candidate himself sticking in & the leadership of those, starting with Sarah Palin, who endorsed the Conservative against the wishes of the detestable NY Republican machine. Just think how we would feel in NJ if something like that had happened here last Spring - we would have the real choice now of Steve Lonegan vs. Jon Corzine, not some phony malleable hand picked candidate who can't articulate a position on anything.

Glenn Beck writes in his book "Common Sense" - "Every time you vote 'against' someone rather than 'for' someone the two party system wins & America loses."

I tend to agree with you - Corzine and Christie are poor choices.
Christie has a lot of negatives against him.
Corzine not saying much of anything.
Its a NO WIN situation.
Neither is saying how they hope to improve conditions except in vague terms.

Interesting to get your slant on the NJ gov race....have been following it on the national news...I suspect that IL will be up against something like what you have there come gov election time.

---Response #3---

You have a good point, except how long will it take to fill the bucket. The NJ Senate & Assembly both have to be changed as well before much of any candidate will mean much at all. With a Christie vote at least a quart will go in the bucket, other wise the bucket stays dry and Corzine will poke a larger hole in the bottom. Now is the time to ban together, not in the next four years where third candidates have no chance of carrying the bucket at all. If they want a shot at the prize they should run in the primaries. I also would have liked Lonegan, but it wasn't to be.
