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 - Evidence Shows November Election Only Important To Some

ou are correct.  Give people free goodies, and they will vote for you.  It is that simple.  Democrats are giving the free goodies. Republicans do not know how to cope with that issue. Saying they want to cut deficits means nothing to average person who is receiving those goodies.  They want the goodies to continue."  This is the typical comment received re the subject message which made the same point highlighting the last two stages of Death Of Democracy.
The problem facing America was again illustrated on Friday @ the CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) annual meeting when Ann Coulter made a speech (pitch) for Romney by telling all of those in attendance to give up their beliefs & principles & vote for someone who can bring in the Independent vote for the Republican Party nominee.  Think this type of reasoning is not how we got into the mess we are in?
There are so many examples of where we go astray from the blessing of liberty we have come to take for granted. 
The latest example concerns the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) announcing that the Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ObamaCare) requires all employers (including religious employers such as the Catholic Church) to directly pay for insurance coverage for contraceptives for their employees  – later accommodated (not compromised) by a BO update to require insurance companies to pay for the contraceptives meaning the cost will be spread around including to the religious organizations.  The original announcement by HHS had support of 39% of the people who saw nothing wrong with the government ordering everyone to have contraceptives in their healthcare programs – never mind the rights of those who have no use for contraceptives such as the Catholic Church, homosexuals, or the elderly.  Think liberty in America is not about to fall.
The worst & most vivid recent example of our problem comes from our Wall Street Financial VP who, @ my request to represent the FairTax, attended a Rodney Frelinghuysen Town Hall Meeting in Morris County NJ on Saturday afternoon attended by 18 people.  In this year of supposed national crisis only 18 people, in a strong Republican district, attended a congressional Town Hall meeting.  There were more speakers on the stage representing Catholics United & Catholics For Choice (never mind the size of the audience or those @ the Catholic Universities) applauding what the students perceived as free contraceptives courtesy of BO than attended this Town Hall meeting.
I sum this up by going back to another speaker @ the CPAC meeting – the PA AFP state Director – who stripped away the excuses when she said it will do no good to tell your children or grandchildren you went to a soccer game or basketball game on such & such a date – the question is what did you do for America & these children's futures when it was slipping away right through your fingers?
