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.

"Our federal tax system is, in short, utterly impossible, utterly unjust and completely counterproductive, it reeks with injustice and is fundamentally un-American... it has earned a rebellion and it's time we rebelled..."

President Ronald Reagan

Dear Doug, Michael and Ronald Reagan

You know Ronald Reagan as one of the greatest Presidents in American history.

I knew him growing up as "Dad."

Growing up with him was nothing short of an adventure. He was full of love and warmth and the strength of belief and character. He embraced liberty and the bold and just vision of our Founding Fathers.

I have no doubt my father would be one of the FairTax's greatest champions had it had existed in his day. Therefore, as his eldest son, I have added my voice to the great FairTax cause.

It is time, past time for our next tax revolution—together we can make it happen!

Today I join you in the work you have accomplished with gratitude for what has been done already and a keen sense of how much more needs to be done.

Will you join me as we drive this year of 2010 The Year of the FairTax?

This should be the Year of the FairTax! This is the 30th Anniversary of my father's successful campaign for President. Then, as now, the nation was mired in a deep economic recession, our nation was viewed as in decline domestically and internationally, and the American people were looking for real, positive and substantive change in the direction of our country. My father, Ronald Reagan, offered and went on to provide just that, real and positive change for the United States. The FairTax will provide the same kind of free enterprise driven economic growth, simplified tax system, reduced taxes to honest Americans, millions of new jobs and a realistic way of dealing with the massive and rapidly growing deficit.

As my father said:

"We need true tax reform that will at least make a start toward restoring for our children the American Dream that wealth is denied to no one, that each individual has the right to fly as high as his strength and ability will take him. . . . But we cannot have such reform while our tax policy is engineered by people who view the tax as a means of achieving changes in our social structure."

He was right then—and that's why the FairTax is right now.

It is time the political class heard from the rest of us about public policy that actually benefits the public instead of Washington insiders.

I have signed the petition to the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee and I'll ask you to sign, too, if you have not already. Click here to add your name and your voice.

After so long there simply is no good reason that we have not seen a fair and balanced hearing on the FairTax—especially when it can do so much to save our nation. We will have to make it happen and I am ready to do everything I can to win this hearing---and to win enactment of the FairTax.

In the coming weeks and months, expect to see me on the national stage for the FairTax. I'll be asking a lot of you because our nation needs each of us right now.

This is our year and I am thrilled to join the fight.
