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 - Anna Little To Interview Doug On The FairTax

My sincere thanks to everyone who listened in support of my FairTax presentation this afternoon on WIFI radio. Special thanks to all of you who phoned or e-mailed messages like "Good job Doug...!!!!" after the show.

I think the program was a success in that the staff on the station seemed to know something about the FairTax - probably due to the influence of Anna Little whose knowledge is very complete having run for Congress in 2010 as a FairTax supporter. My hope is that the several co-hosts regularly discuss the FairTax among themselves on the air & in response to callers who ask economic questions. Please take advantage of every chance you get to speak on the FairTax yourself - it all adds up - the steady consistent beating of the drum.

Below are two responses that I particularly enjoyed. With regard to the comment about having such a good "radio voice" - I responded "I don't know about the voice but I have been told I have a face made for radio."

---Response #1---

I got a chance to listen to you on the radio giving the overview of the FairTax. I wish they gave you more time to explain its many benefits but it was good to see the support on the station for it. Do you know of any legislator in CT (the bluest state in the U.S.) who supports it??

---Response #2---

Hi Doug,

You did a great job just now talking to Anna Little. You have such a good "radio voice" - I think that they should hire you to be National Spokesman for the FairTax! You have a nice friendly tone to your voice, you articulate well and you don't come across like a snobby "know-it-all". You were really good!

PS: Tell Carol I like her too!
