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 - FairTax Radio Program - March 7, 2012

Thanks to everyone who expressed encouragement before the airing of the subject program – such things always help.  I am just as grateful for the wonderful responses received – like the ones below after the program aired.  I also talked to neighbors who seriously asked me how many people were on the panel doing the questioning – it did seem like a lot didn't it?
The comments below are quite complimentary but please realize that I present them only for encouragement for all of us to do what we can for America because she needs help more & more every day.

Doug - I want to take this opportunity to congratulate you on an outstanding job promoting the virtues of The FairTax.  I particularly enjoyed the segment between you & Chuck H. He started off negative but you immediately identified the benefits of The FairTax leaving him an advocate at the end.

Hi Doug - Thank you for sharing the link so that I could listen to your FairTax Radio Program. I think you presented the material extremely well and I agree with Mr. Haytian the time went very quickly because the presentation/discussion was so interesting.  Hopefully, you will be called back to do another program soon. Best regards to Carol.

P.S. I thought Barbara's points were very good, too.

I was listening to the program again myself afterward, and agree that it was one of the best yet -- you're quite the good debater on the subject -- well informed and able to make your points effectively.

Thanks Doug....although the interviewing panel played "devil's advocate", you did a great job holding your own! Nice job!

  1. Doug -- In your years of advocating the FairTax, how much legitimate critism of the FairTax have you heard and what do you feel are the strongest arguments against the FairTax?
