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.

Primary Election Highlights

Although there are still some big ones coming up - with eleven states holding their primaries on Tuesday we are now well into the primary season. In addition to the normal mid-term Members of the House primary races there were races in California, Nevada, South Dakota, Iowa, South Carolina, & Maine for both Governor & Senate.

Highlight results for Tea Partiers include two victorious candidates who Sarah Palin heartily endorsed:

1. Outsider Sharron Angle won the Nevada Republican Senate primary & will oppose the insidious Senate Majority Leader Harry "Ringside" Reid in November.

2. SC state Rep Nikki Haley won the Republican Governor's primary & will be in a runoff because she only won 49% of the vote running against three other candidates - the closet to her had 22%.

Two congressional candidates in NJ who ran endorsing the FairTax did very well with one winning outright & the other being in an election too close to call. Both candidates endorsed the FairTax during their campaigns & said they will cosponsor HR 25 if elected in the fall.

1. Michael Agosta (57% & 5,397 votes) won NJ's 9th Republican district. Third place finisher Sergey Shevchuk also expressed late interest in the FairTax.

2. Anna Little leads her opponent by 63 votes – 50.2% to 49.8% with 482 of 483 precincts counted in NJ's 6th district. Little raised $22,000 to Gooch's $432,000 which is a similar story to Dave Corsi who ran his campaign on a financial shoestring but with great ideas & strong principles & lost his election 54% to 46% to a millionaire establishment Republican party line candidate.

If Little ultimately wins her primary she will take on 22 year incumbent Frank Pallone in the general election. Agosta will take on 14 year incumbent Steve Rothman. The consequences of these two seemingly insignificant races in NJ are enormous so you know the statists will do everything they can to hold America back.
