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.

Candidates' Night - August 3, 2010

You are invited to attend & participate in the subject meeting @ the Bridgewater Library @ 1 Vogt Drive, Bridgewater NJ 08807 on Tuesday August 3 starting @ 6:30 PM. The purpose of the meeting is to bring all FairTax & tax reform candidates in NJ who ran for public office in the last year together to honor them & to develop the most synergy possible going forward. Eight such candidates accepted my invitation to participate in this meeting. There are two candidates - Mike Agosta & Anna Little - both of who will run in November on the FairTax after endorsing the FairTax during the primaries so it is important to maximize our efforts in spreading the word for these two candidates.

This is your chance to personally meet these high energy people who unselfishly ran for public office to defend all of our liberties. You will never get a better chance than this.

Please feel free to bring guests to the meeting - just let me know how many people you are bringing because in addition to being the host I am also the janitor who has to prepare the room & clean it up.

The agenda is as follows:

1. Introduction - Doug Hartlove

2. The Importance Of Running For Public Office - Stan Serafin, former NJ State Assembly Candidate

3. Statement by all candidates in attendance regarding their future plans & how they will support the FairTax & America (Greg Ament representing Mike Agosta, Tod Theise, Dave Corsi, Richard Luzzi, Lon Hosford, Jim Poesl, Gloria Leustek, & Alan Bateman)

4. Frelinghuysen, Lance, Garrett - no support of FairTax from them. John Boehner's call against the FairTax.

5. Discussion of attack ads used in other states against FairTax candidates. PA's negative experience & GA's positive experience. What was the difference in these results?

6. Discussion of Rick Barber's (losing candidate in Alabama Second District) appearance on Hardball & follow up attempt by FairTax NJ

7. Preparation of candidates - brush up on any points requested tonight

8. FairTax NJ will stand behind the active candidates as a resource ready to help. Private training sessions planned - seminar or moot court - candidates' preference of format.

9. Closing Remarks - Doug Hartlove
