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 - Electoral Map & Voting Standards

Thanks to everyone who provided their comments re last night's subject message.  Below are three very varied thoughtful responses.  A fourth was provided earlier today by the great Thomas Sowell on FBN.  When asked if BO could win Dr. Sowell thought for a moment & replied "I am afraid he might."
---Response #1---
I don't know where you go to get all this information and facts.  Makes for interesting reading.  As you mention, BO, even though hated by the general public, can still win.  He is a very good speaker and will visit strategic states he needs to win the election to talk to people there about his programs & will get plenty of TV coverage.  When he tells the public in these states, that the GOP is not doing anything constructive, and he is, it will stick with many dissatisfied people.  Remember, the wise person running for office, always mixes fact and fiction together, to get the public thinking his or her way.
---Response #2---
The election is a year off...DON'T PANIC ...Since BO was elected, FL, OH, and PA elected both Republican governors and senators...They can switch back, along with IN and NC. Nothing BO does (and deep down you know this) is going to help the economy....he can rant and rave about the GOP and Bush, or the bad weather...most voters just aren't listening. Sure, a lot can happen before the election; it's a full year for BO to screw up even more.
---Response #3---

Being a betting man, I am going to say that NJ's 15 electoral votes are up for grabs thanks to Chris Christie.  Also, I am predicting that Chris Christie will be the VP nominee if Mitt Romney wins the primary.

Should Christie be the VP nominee and if I were to engage in wishful thinking then several of the New England states including NY possible could be in play.

Is it fair to say that the 47% of Americans who pay no federal income taxes live in the blue states?
