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.

Election Preview

"I Need You To Keep On Believing" was the literal cry of BO as he continues his endless 4 year campaign mode swing around the country trying to hold African-Americans, Hispanics, & the youth vote together to vote on Tuesday for people who support his socialist agenda. He has also directed his attention to women & illegal aliens who sense a kill if the current congressional majorities are maintained. Illegals are coming out of the shadows (& woodwork) volunteering to go door to door in some districts. Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce reports that an illegal alien has already been elected to office in Arizona in the past. Unfortunately for BO he may run out of time before election day & may not get to the criminal vote in penitentiaries for convicts he counts on cancelling out your vote.

A subscriber to ReturnToExcellence.net writes "Know you have been working hard and are very anxious about the week ahead. We have been talking to a lot of people about the election, who is running here (ugh) and sorry to say so many negative responses to actually voting! The answers are the usual, too many liars, empty promises etc. Trying to get across that in order to get rid of the politicians we don't want, you have to vote but I never saw so many negative people. Will get back to you as to who we favor right now, so much mud slinging we don't know what to believe!!"

I referred the subscriber to the December 8, 2009 posting on the blog entitled "How To Vote The Bums Out." This posting is ideal for anyone who expresses the above negativity. I also recommend that everyone reread this posting plus others in December 2009 - they are a treasure trove of information that will test your courage in the voting booth.

It is reported that conservatives have a greater enthusiasm to vote in this election than Democrats notwithstanding the above comment. Since April the national rate of Tea Party activists has fallen to 17% of voters from 24%. This reduction is due to people saying they are in favor of the Tea Party in principle but not in practice as they see their own government benefits in jeopardy as a result of spending cuts the Tea Party advocates. The key going forward is to analyze the size of any victories on Tuesday, especially if there is low turn out, to gage what will happen in 2012 when all of BO's community organizing skills will be put to use once again in what will surely be a high turn out election.

I have identified in previous postings 11 Tea Party Senate candidates who are terrific & I hope will caucus with Jim DeMint & Tom Coburn if elected - what a difference this will make for America if they do. For instance Ron Johnson leads in the polls in Wisconsin over statist Feingold. Johnson has said that he is "not going to Washington to join a club but to join Jim DeMint in working for America." This is exactly what we need.

The Comedy Central Spoof Rally on the National Mall Saturday attracted 215,000 people according to CBS (Communist Broadcasting of Socialism) - I saw the crowd live & it was impressive. In contrast the Glenn Beck rally in August attracted 87,000 people according to CBS & the 9/12 rally of 2009 attracted 77,000 as reported by FNC based on Washington DC fire department estimates. My estimate of the latter event was @ least 400,000 people based on elevator space calculations I performed - see blog posting of September 15, 2009. In any event I was stunned to watch some of the Comedy Central Rally live to see the large number of people who could possibly believe in Stewart & Colbert enough to come to Washington for this event. The crowd was youthful so our hope is that as they get older they will mature but that will not help this Tuesday if these people vote.

We have first rate candidates all over the country but none finer than our two congressional FairTax supporting candidates who won their primaries in NJ - Anna Little & Mike Agosta. Both ran & won against the Republican machine in June & now are running against the Democrat machine. Anna Little has received some support from Steele & the Republican Party but Mike Agosta is an outstanding candidate who has not received any help from the Bergen County Republican Organization or the NRCC. Carol & I were honored to meet with Mr. & Mrs. Agosta in their home in August to provide a FairTax attack ad training session that was hardly needed because of their tremendous understanding of the principles of the FairTax. You could not do better than to vote for Anna or Mike if you live in districts #6 or # 9 respectively in NJ.

Mike's Campaign Manager recently wrote to Carol & me that "Michael Agosta stands for a return to the Constitution and the principles of the Founding Fathers." Sound familiar? Mike Agosta is running for public office for the first time in his life to help you & our country return to excellence.


  1. Well written. I always maintained, if Democrats can go out for Hispanic vote - then election can be close.

    From what I hear and read, many people who are eligible to vote - WILL NOT be voting this year. They are disatisfied with Democrat and Republican parties.

    Tea Party came on strong - but they did not say much about how they would cure economy (if that is the word). Also I hear a lot of in fighting among their members.

    As I see it - no matter who gets in - no major change in domestic policy. Govt will continue to print money like mad.

    Hope I am wrong.

  2. Doug:

    Thank you for an excellent up-date & overview.
