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.

Pence & Huckabee Lead Early Straw Poll

Although admittedly early, last weekend Indiana Congressman Mike Pence won the "Values Voter" 2012 GOP presidential nomination straw poll conducted by the Family Research Council Action with 24% of the vote.  Governor Mike Huckabee finished second with 22%.
The exciting thing about this result is that both front runners heavily support the FairTax.  Governor Huckabee ran for president in 2008 & his only comment on his issues paper re taxes was the unambiguous four word statement - "I support the FairTax."
Congressman Pence was first elected to the House in 2000 & has been a co-sponsor of HR 25 for several years - he is graded "A" by the National Taxpayers Union.  Click here to hear Mr. Pence explain some of the liberty principles why he supports the FairTax.
Those of us who constantly, consistently, & most important accurately spread the FairTax word across America are doing the ground work so that when the right national figure comes along we will have a base of support in place.  Mike Huckabee finished in the final four in 2008 - just imagine the difference for our country in his pursuing the FairTax the past 20 months had he won the presidency compared to what has happened.
Couple Messrs. Pence or Huckabee in the presidency with the following victorious Senate Tea Party candidates who will caucus with Jim DeMint (SC) & Tom Coburn (OK) instead of the Republican Party establishment & you have reason to get excited again.
Rand Paul - KY
Joe Miller - AK
Ron Johnson - WI
Sharron Angle - NV
Mike Lee - UT
Marco Rubio - FL
Pat Toomey - PA
Ken Buck - CO
Christine O'Donnell - DE
Linda McMahon - CT
Carly Fiorina - CA
And please do not forget our two NJ FairTax congressional candidates - Anna Little & Mike Agosta.  Also Rob Woodall is running to replace the retiring John Linder & will become the FairTax lead sponsor if elected.
With all of the people mentioned above in office, America as we knew her when we were growing up, has a chance to return against all the odds one more time.
