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.

Responses - An Electoral Analysis

Thanks to everyone who provided a response to the original subject message. Below are four excellent insights that add to the discussion. The fourth brings the last paragraph of the original message into perspective for all of us to reflect & relate to re the future of our country.

---Response #1---


Perhaps there are under-currents that haven't surfaced with the same intensity like the issues you have addressed.

There still could be "unhappy Republican overhang" from 2008. Similar to discovering a cheating spouse not everyone can forgive and forget in two years. Our elected Republicans cheated on us, they had a love affair with Democrats. True, some members of the Republican Party did kiss and make up accepting the promise from their Republican leaders they will never cheat again. But many more Republican constituents are hurting and have not regained the trust that a political marriage demands. As with many adulterers the separation may end in divorce.

---Response #2---

Yes, I have a face book page, and a friend to this fellow with about 250 readers, I continuously have debates with quite a few, I might light a little spark at times but talk about dense gray matter, only a transplant will fix the problem.

---Response #3---

Your electoral analysis presentation was well written, As you know, I have mentioned several times in the past to you - Hispanics are the fastest growing population in U.S. This is fertile ground for Democrats. They are not rich, and can easily be swayed how to vote. If Democrats make a concerted effort to get their votes - election will be close.

---Response #4---

That last paragraph in your reflection is so true. Most of my friends and family won't even talk about the upcoming election, and do seem to be oblivious to the truth of what is happening to our country. I have talked to many people as a volunteer for our IL state senator candidate, and many are saying what's the use of even voting? It is so sad!
