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.

More Responses - A 2012 Election Year Strategy That Will Strengthen America

Well the fur continues to fly as two more heated responses to the subject message came in.  See below.

But before you read them, thanks to another subscriber to ReturnToExcellence.net, for sending the link to Judge Napolitano’s closing remarks on Freedom Watch – the best show on TV that was abruptly cancelled by FBN.  Watch quickly because the video will most likely be taken down soon by its owners.

With re to the two additional responses – the first one comes from a Ron Paul supporter in NJ who understands the slow death the establishment Republican Party is sending us to & the second one comes from a decades long friend who lives in PA who has just about had it with Santorum.  They both seem to favor a brokered convention.

---Response #1---

First, I support Jim DeMint in all his efforts, I get the emails and I donate. I wish DeMint would find someone to run in NJ, we need help here Jim!!!!

Second, I don't feel we should rag on the 86 or so freshman congressmen who haven't done what we wanted in their first terms but I would rather send them at least another 86 Tea Party freshman to help the original 86 find their way. If that doesn't work then we will have to remove the original 86 and add others.

Lastly, with thin pluralities that exist in the GOP Primary, I welcome a brokered convention... That just might be the thing Ron Paul would need to get a nomination. If you think you are doing this country a service by supporting anybody but RON PAUL you are just sending America to a slower death than having BO getting re-elected...!!!!

---Response #2---

Hi Doug - you have been working very hard this winter, hoping for good results but the GOP keeps shooting themselves into their feet every time they write a speech. Very discouraged with the candidates and pessimistic about the election. Does Santorum really think he can win over anybody with his constant hammering on religion? And Romney is not winning any friends either. They should be using every appearance to bring down Obama's healthcare, explaining the benefits of the pipeline from Canada, cost of gas, horrible increases in national debt, and on and on. Which state and local candidates can we, in Penna., count on now? Instead of all this crap about the benefits of having a successful business man run the country, and contraceptives and abortion, the true problems should be addressed. When real voters go into the booths to vote, they will be putting their freedom to think for themselves along with solutions for our long-term problems first. Can hardly wait until this election year is over, gets more messy every week! Regards from Jerry and me to you and Carol!
