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.

FairTax On The Radio - March 7, 2012

I have been invited to be the guest on WRNJ radio this coming Wednesday March 7 from 10:05 to 11:00 AM.  The program is entitled "Local Impact."  Co-hosts are former NJ Assembly Speaker Chuck Haytian, Independence Township Mayor Bob Giordano, & of course Joyce Estey the station's News Director who invited me back to her program for the fifth time.  The goal of the program is to take an issue & break it down to how it effects each of us.  Although the program will focus on the FairTax I could tell from the way it was described to me that we will go over many of the points presented on ReturnToExcellence.net over time.
The station's website streams live  - www.wrnjradio.com.  Click on "Listen Live."  You may call in at (908) 852-1234.


  1. Doug, will this program be accessible on the website below at a later time? I won't be available to listen that morning.

    RTE - I will post it on the blog like I have all of the other times I was on the station. Will let you know when it is available.

    1. See also posting entitled "FairTax Question & Answer" dated August 2, 2012 pertaining to this post. Excellent comments with responses. Also to hear the broadcast look for this topic under "The FairTax" on left hand side of RTE.

  2. Fine way of telling, and fastidious post to obtain data about my presentation focus, which I am going to deliver in college.
