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 - Ron Paul's Sobering Financial Analysis

The message with Ron Paul's video on Freedom Watch brought many comments. Below are three that add to the discussion along with my tying numbers one & two together regarding who the government & the American people are & a few additional thoughts in red.

In the final analysis everything can be lumped under the heading of "getting elected". Most of us concerned with the health of our country felt the Tea Party & Tea Party Candidates will save the day. However, the jury is still out. For me, the contest is between the unions and the government AKA us. I am watching the battlegrounds of Wisconsin and NJ very closely. If those governors go down in flames MOVE to another country. Watch Governor John Kasich in Ohio also.

Ron Paul doesn't sound very hopeful. It seems that it is up to the American people to stand up for what is right, outnumbered or not! - Isn't that always the way - which is the theme of my messages?

---Response # 3---

Doug, I understand your frustration. And yes, if Anna Little had been elected and voted to allow the budget stalemate to continue, I'd be letting her know what I think of her. Unfortunately, nobody pays any attention to what is going on in Washington except the dedicated ones like yourself. Most people are so overwhelmed in their daily lives, they don't have a clue what's happening right under their noses. We just have to keep fighting and not give up and we have to keep getting the message out. Keep the Faith. What you say about not knowing what is going on "under their noses" is exactly why I write the blog. In fact it is written @ the suggestion of the great SC Senator Jim DeMint & Tea Party Member extraordinaire. People who read the blog can't say they don't know what the details of the issues are.
