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.

Continuation Discussion - Valueless Human Life

Ever so often a message promotes a continuous stream of responses for days & the one entitled "Valueless Human Life" certainly has done that.  Below are two additional responses.  The first one is counting on the Republican Party to be the answer to our problems & calls for fast action while the second one calls for a more gradual swing of the pendulum but in the same direction.  I add a few comments in red.
Both messages act as though "we" have the power to vote in Republicans any time "we" want.  "We" are drastically outnumbered & the sooner "we" recognize this the better off "we" will be - how else did our supposed center-right country wind up with BO, an overwhelming Democrat House, & a virtual filibuster proof Democrat Senate.
Arizona Representative John Shadegg has introduced the Enumerated Powers Act since the 1990s - this bill requires any Congressman to call out the authority from the Constitution for any new spending.  All 435 Members of the House take an oath to uphold the Constitution & yet only 68 have signed on as co-sponsors of this really redundant bill.  It is hard to believe that we are going to find the answer to our problems by just voting in Republicans - especially those who currently undermine the Constitution every day & have not signed on as cosponsors of John Shadegg's bill.
---Response #1---
Both the article and response are correct - for a faster correction we should vote for Republicans and fast.  We can not wait for enough non socialist or tea party members to come up to run, but vote for the ones who do run with an R behind them.  It is critical to remove what we have in power now.  I have been telling everyone to watch their words and decipher them - they are not hiding much now that their real beliefs are out.  As I heard from a communist tonight in the Khrushchev era , we do not have to fight you, we will feed you small parts of socialism and you will accept them - than you will wither like rotting fruit and lose to communism.  We are already more than 50% socialist thanks to both Republicans & Democrats.  Without the right "non socialist or tea party members" this slide will only continue no matter how fast we vote in Republicans this portion of the two party election cycle.
---Response #2---  
    We are not going to succeed in our objective unless and until we do the following:
    1. The ballot box has an additional entry that can be check marked to indicate none of the candidates are acceptable.  This is why the primaries are so very important - maybe even more important than the general election.  This will send a message to both the political parties.    We need more than just the two political parties.
    2. The political pendulum that currently is on the extreme left cannot be swung to the right in one easy step. It will never succeed unless it is done gradually. The reality is that it is difficult for the voters to accept sudden shifts in ideology.  Gradualism is certainly how we got to our present point.  David Hume - "It is seldom that liberty of any kind is lost all @ once."
