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.

FairTax On The Radio - April 15, 2010

For anyone who missed Tod Theise & me on the radio last Thursday just click here to hear the audio.  Tod is a candidate for the U.S. Congress in NJ's 5th district running against incumbent Republican Scott Garrett.  Joyce Estee, the WRNJ News Director & host of the show, presented introductory remarks saying that Mr. Garrett declined to appear on the show because "@ this time he does not discuss the FairTax in public."


  1. Very nice job! Enjoyed both your remarks and those of Tod Theise....thanks for all you are doing for the benefit of the US....keep up the good work!

  2. Doug - thanks so much for the link to the radio show. It was a genuine pleasure to meet you and Carol. I not only learned a great deal about the fair tax, but I left WRNJ bolstered by the fact there are citizens such as yourself who are willing to fight for our nation's soul.
