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.

Close Call Isn't It?

The only thing more ridiculous than BO going on a "listening tour" on Greyhound One @ this point in his presidency is conservative TV hosts, who should know much better, who fill the airways with losing or misleading points like the two I highlight below.

The first point is the protesting & complaining that 51% of income earners do not pay any federal income taxes.  The normally level headed Neil Cavuto even seemed irritated about this during a recent monologue.  Now who can think that presenting this fact this way, @ this time, is a winning issue when you are looking for a majority.  The time to bring this up was long ago when the number was around 10% or 41% ago.  The issue can still be presented properly but to be effective requires a change in mindset where all Americans regardless of how much income tax they pay realize they really do have skin in a game they are in jeopardy of losing in November 2012.

The second point is the questioning by pundits as to whether or not BO understands basic economics because his programs do not or have not created an atmosphere for job creation.  The universal response & discussion I have seen on these shows concludes fallaciously that BO does not understand economics.  These arguments make it look like we are all on the same All-American Team with just different ideas of how to improve life.  Well we're not all on the same team.  BO is on an anti-American team that counts on the 70% of our citizens who receive some sort of government subsistence – & have no idea or concern where this money or benefits comes from – to stick with him as long as the government provides the means for their subsistence.  BO perfectly understands economics & his programs are designed to produce precisely the terrible results they have so that more & more people become government dependent.  Click here for an encore presentation on this blog by Jon Voight for the best explanation I know of re this matter .

For long time readers of these messages I don't need to list every one of BO's transgressions – just go to ReturnToExcellence.net & click on "Classics" on the left hand side of the blog & look up "Obama Payback Will Cause Us Problems - 11/9/08" to see what lied ahead for us after the last presidential election.  This message has unfortunately played out with America very well falling into the very last stage of Death Of Democracy.

As described by Jon Voight above, in BO, our citizens face the biggest enemy America has faced since King George III in 1776.  TV & radio hosts would be wise to portray this accurately instead of hoping for the next interview to spike their ratings regardless of which network they are on.

Thanks to James Schaefer who recently summed up our political future when he wrote "Ultimately, this is a discussion about what we as a nation want to be.  Do we seek to be a can-do, make-do society, so ably demonstrated by our parents' & grandparents' generation who left a better world  for those who followed, or a society marked by citizens trying to extract as much as possible from government on somebody else's dime." 

Close call isn't it?

  1. Doug - yes BO understands economics in depth. His ultimate goal is to destroy capitalism and to create a large Nanny state. Left unchecked the US dollar will collapse. Following that will be several years of unprecedented global financial restructuring that will destroy all Nanny states. Sorry BO. Subsequently a new world order will emerge and new heights in prosperity. For more economic analysis supporting this view I recommend books by 2 investors who predicted the housing bubble few years before the 2008 collapse. Author and books -- Robert Weidemer - Aftershock, and Damon Vickers - Day after Dollar Collapses. Can some conservative journalist give BO these 2 books for his Martha Vineyard holiday?

    Meanwhile good luck to 3 presidential candidates who understand how to grow the economy given their private business experience -- Romney, Cain, Bachmann. If one of these become Rep nominee, let's figure out best way to decrease enthusiasm for keeping handouts by the 50% who pay no taxes and increase the enthusiasm for the other 50% so they all vote.
