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.

Don't You?

Congratulations & thanks to a subscriber to ReturnToExcellence.net for writing & getting the letter below published in the popular NJ Courier-News (he would love to see responses from any of you which I will post). The subscriber has participated in numerous FairTax seminars & Tea Parties & in fact was the presenter of a FairTax seminar to a group of over 50 people. These type of things are perfect examples of what any of us could do if we were interested in contributing peacefully to the fight against the destructive statists who work round the clock taking away our liberties & way of life little by little each & every day until none are left. I just wish we had a whole lot more like him - don't you?

Dear Editor,

Any soccer mom or hockey dad can tell you that spouses paying one another to cook and clean won't sustain their family. And for similar reasons, our nation's economy cannot be driven by the creation of minimum wage jobs with us serving one another hamburgers or selling one another Chinese made products.

Money must come in from outside the home, state and country for us to sustain our way of life. This is pretty basic stuff; however, apparently few elected State and Federal officials get it. As the number and size of social programs grow, taxes will increase. And while the volumes of regulations continue to multiply, enabling even more abusive government control, the production of American made goods will decrease and even more national income will be lost. Increased taxes plus disappearing jobs is not a formula for recovery. The only question remaining is who will be left to pay for all of the social programs and bureaucracies?

To improve our balance of trade we need to encourage the growth of American companies capable of producing and selling products to global markets. We must let our free enterprise system work as intended to create high paying jobs to fuel our recovery.

It isn't that difficult.

1 - Reduce all taxes and curb the government's obsession for control of every part of our lives.

2 - Reduce the amount of money sent to our enemies in the Middle East for crude oil and to our economic rivals in the Far East for the purchase of consumer goods.

3 - Stop sending aid to governments who "hate" America.

Now is the time to protect our freedom and defend America for the benefit of future generations. Can the free world exist without America?
