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 & Results - Laura Ingraham Tax Poll

Thanks to everyone who voted for the FairTax in the subject poll which was removed from Laura's website before some of you had the chance to participate. The last I saw the FairTax was ahead of the Flat Tax 57 to 40. If any one has other information please let me know. Over the past several years the only issue to even come close to the FairTax in these polls is term limits which of course the FairTax takes care of by eliminating the big & powerful jobs in Washington that make people want to go there for decades @ our expense in the first place.

Three of the representative responses I received within minutes of last night's posting from people in three different states: "we both did it!", "Done! The FairTax is still way ahead.", & "This poll is certainly encouraging for the FairTax....but you are right when you say 'let's not be complacent.' I put my two cents in."

All of the work we have done & are doing is cumulative.

At times like this I realize more than ever how many people reading these messages were introduced to the FairTax by Carol & me & have become supporters. I thank you for your trust & promise that as we continue to work together for America to never let you down just as you have never let me down as witnessed by the overwhelming response to this poll.
