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.

A Great Example For Voting The Bums Out

Thanks to our Midwest member who sent the inspirational video below of congressional candidate Lieutenant Colonel Allen West who will be running for Congress again in 2010 in Florida's 22nd district - a district well over 1000 miles from the home of the patriot who sent us the link for the video so she is obviously following the race closely. This is the district that was @ the center of the Bush-Gore presidential election disputed vote recount.

After winning an August 2008 primary Col. West lost the 2008 general election 54.9% to 45.1% to Democrat Ron Klein so West is hoping to get @ least a 5 point swing in his favor in this affluent district that votes Democrat @ a greater percentage than the national average compared to figures for the prior two presidential elections.

Now if the above video sparked your own interest in this race it also provides several other links to gain insight into West's positions but please always do your own homework. Klein's positions are a matter of record that can easily be found.

West is a 20+ year career army officer who received many honors. He is very big on safety & education which he calls "the great equalizer."

His opponent Ron Klein is graded "F" by NTU with an 8% favorable rating so this race involves an automatic disqualifier for voting for the incumbent Klein based on our "vote the bums out" program. At least the people in Florida's 22nd district will get a real choice. The rest of us should hope to be so fortunate & if we are that we make the most of it.
