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.

BO Follows FDR's Winning Electoral Ways

I am starting to lose track of how many people have recently told me that BO will be a one term president because of the poor economy. Before you rest assured of this conclusion please consider the points in this message.

Currently BO is positioning the Republicans to take the fall for whatever problems result from the current debt ceiling danger. BO constantly appears on TV acting as though he has nothing to do with the debt problem & that he is the only one willing to compromise to solve it. In fact, just the opposite is true but the perception of the majority of the electorate may very well side with BO.

In the last three months BO has raised $86 million for his reelection campaign - far more than all of his opponents combined. This includes a quarter of a million people who never donated to BO before.

And of course before we count BO out please consider that FDR was elected president four times – on each occasion 1) vociferously spewing hate against business & 2) promising much more government - both points of which make up BO’s entire platform that has taken hold even today as over 9% of the labor force is unemployed & another 6 million discouraged people have stopped looking for work with virtually no chance to return to the kind of employment needed any time soon to increase Americans standard of living.

Readers of these messages know that BO used all of his community organization skills following the Alinsky Method to win the presidency in 2008. This included organizing minorities such as Blacks, Hispanics, young single mothers, college students, & people (mostly Independents) suffering from what Dr. Shelby Steele of the Hoover Institution @ Stanford calls white guilt to vote for him. We have no reason to believe that BO will not have these same organizational skills (& campaign funding) working in 2012 when he gets all of the foregoing people to once again vote for him as well as many others no matter how bad the economy is or how long these people have been out of work. This was the superfecta FDR pulled off – people followed their perceived good intentions of FDR's policies four times rather than the disastrous actual results.

Thanks to our SC businessman for presenting this very special census map showing the ethnic population statistics between 2000 & 2010 for every county in America & many of our cities. To add more exact meaning regarding the 2012 election you will have to do your own interpolation back to 2008 & then forward to November 2012. The census map shows some dramatic growth rates in the minorities who overwhelming voted for BO in 2008.

The 2010 mid-term election is representative of other mid-term elections in that about 41% of the 218,000,000 people eligible to vote actually voted. The 2008 presidential election had a voter turn-out of 57% - an increase of 5 million people from 2004, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This increase included about 2 million more black voters, 2 million more Hispanic voters, & about 600,000 more Asian voters. Other than Asian voters the other two groups overwhelmingly favor Democrats. Black & Hispanic participation in the 2012 presidential election may very well increase based on incumbent community organization skills.

Additionally, voters 18 to 24 were the only age group to show a statistically significant increase in turnout, reaching 49 percent in 2008 compared with 47 percent in 2004. Blacks had the highest turnout rate among 18- to 24-year-old voters -- 55 percent, an 8 percent increase from 2004.

"The 2008 presidential election saw a significant increase in voter turnout among young people, Blacks and Hispanics," said Thom File, a voting analyst with the Census Bureau's Housing and Household Economic Statistics Division.

Do your own analysis of Mr. File's comment - if the youth vote, Black, & Hispanic turnout all went up & the overall turnout was insignificantly unchanged then determine for yourself which groups went down & prepare yourself accordingly.


  1. Hi Doug - For me, the map left more questions than answers. If I am reading the map correctly, the "white flight" being experienced in the country's heartland, particularly, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas is very troubling. The big question is, where are the white people going?

  2. What you say is true - Hispanics are the fasting growing group in U.S. and they vote for Democrats because Democrats will create programs to give them money for various "so called projects"

    Where does that money come from - you know, the printing press. Government can print money whereas States cannot.

    My memory is hazy, but FDR's plan was to create jobs by government having work programs like CCC. They would build roads, highways, etc. Other programs built Post Offices,etc. all to create jobs.

    This worked for a while, but sometime down the road someone has to pay the "bill"

    What helped FDR - World War 2. That is when everybody worked for the war effort.

  3. Hi Doug - Although your outlook about the upcoming 2012 election is gloomy, I will be willing to suspect that at least some of those independents and youth ages 18-24 thought they were voting for "Hope in Change" in Washington (tired of Bush etc.).... not America. And after seeing the "fundamental transformation of this country" will decide in the voting booth that they want something else.
