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's American Flag - Another Silly Costly Issue?

I remember the NJ gubernatorial election of 1981 where Democrat Jim Florio lost to Tom Kean by the slimmest of margins – in fact the margin was virtually the number of people who voted for Kean because they were incensed that the Meadowlands' Arena had been renamed the Brendan Byrne Arena to honor the previous Democrat governor – the Star Ledger ran a poll & story of people who said they voted for Kean after they saw the new name on the arena.  This is really a silly issue to lose an election over isn't it?

Click here to see a video, commentary, & comments re a Florida county's Democrat headquarters flying an American flag with BO's image in place of the stars on the flag.  This has brought much outrage from people who just might not vote for BO because of it.

Now such stunts do not follow the Alinsky method that BO is a master of & as such you can bet he was not the one who initiated the current flying of such a flag.  I'm sure BO feels there is plenty of time for that after the November election.


  1. No it is not a silly issue to lose an election over. It was an indicator that those voters were sick and tired of political hacks, patronage and cronyism.

    Multiply that silly issue by thousands and you end up $14 trillion in the hole.
