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 - Only 21 Of 87 Freshman House Republicans Are Still With You

Below are two responses to the subject message that add to the discussion. I purposely did not highlight one obvious Rep that did not vote the right way yesterday - congrats to the few who noticed & commented that Paul Ryan was not on the list of Members who voted against the phony FY 2011 Budget Bill. Ryan is now the lead sponsor of the FY 2012 Republican Budget.

Yesterday Senator Coburn reported on Greta's FOX hour that the IMF stated its displeasure with the 2011 budget deal. No surprise. The main surprise is that our congressmen are putting their careers over our nation's economic health. If the Fed ends QE2 this summer and our debt continues to grow 4 to 5 billion per day, interest rates will spike and the dollar may collapse. How short sighted our Congress people are. We need term limits ASAP.

---Response #2---

Doug - Question for you.... Will you be doing a piece on your blog re: What does it mean to be a FairTax co-sponsor other than signing up for a congressional bill?
