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.

More Responses - A Speech Vs. Four Years Experience

Can't move on to some other upcoming great messages I have received until I post the following two additional responses re the original responses to the subject message & in particular to my comment re the polls showing BO's approval numbers picking up after his speech following the Arizona Memorial Service.  I provide my comments below in red to each.
---Response #1---
Would you have rather had the Dems still control the House?  We CAN win the Presidency IF we get a good candidate.  I haven't seen anyone really stepping up to the plate with a big bat yet...
Too soon to say.  If not for Libertarian candidate Jim Gawron throwing his hat in the ring Carol & I were going to vote for Democrat Douglas Herbert over Republican Rodney Frelinghuysen.  Something like you voting for Conley over Graham.  If Boehner & Co. louse this up I would rather have had the Democrats in continued control - when we get bad enough it will turn around in a heartbeat but only when it is that bad, or else we are finished quickly instead of this tortuous slow burn.  I voted following the principles of "How To Vote The Bums Out" - see blog posting of December 8, 2009 if you don't remember it.
---Response #2---
Your comment at the end of response #4 may very well be true. On the other hand, I think  this is a calculated shift on BO's part to make it look like he is moving to the center. I don't envision him keeping up this charade. He is too invested in his original ideology and will soon be back to his old leftist agenda. He knows that if he doesn't, he will lose his far left base and he hasn't a prayer of gaining support from the tea party groups nor real conservatives.  With the right candidate to oppose him in 2012, we can send him packing back to Chicago.       
It is precisely because BO is totally invested in his Marxist ideology that he is following the Alinsky method of organization of pretending to be one of us.  BO doesn't have to worry about losing the far left - he is the far left.  If he survives a Primary challenge, if any, he will never lose the far left base, the blacks, Latinos, or the youth vote including single women especially those with children in the general election.  What BO is doing will unfold before your eyes when you read Alinsky's Rules For Radicals .  In the meantime I refer you to a crash course - click on ReturnToExcellence.net & check out the May 17, 2010 posting entitled Jon Voight's Open Letter To America.


  1. Re: Would you have rather had the Dems still control the House?

    This will happen if the Republicans moderate their positions. The electorate will then view Obama and Dems as more 'moderate' and vote them in. To win Republicans should continue to challenge Democrats on core conservative economic principles such as NOT increasing our debt ceiling and NOT compromising on bureactrats running Health Care. The electorate will then identify with these positions and view Obama and Dems as radical as they really are. Please view my blog at http://economics501.wordpress.com/. Also please read http://www.investors.com/NewsAndAnalysis/Article/560521/201101211925/Why-Not-A-Negative-Income-Tax-With-Cash-Subsidies-To-The-Poor-.htm. In a few minutes I will respond to the Negative Income Tax article with a tie in to the Fair Tax.

  2. If Republicans moderate thier positions then Obama and Dems win in 2012. The electorate would view Obama and Dems as more moderate than they are. The Republicans must challenge Obama with true conservative economic principles. These include NO increase in debt ceiling and NO bureacrats running helath care. The electorate will identify with these issues then view the Dems as the radicals they really are.
