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 - Losing Liberty Through BO's Executive Orders

The subject message brought several responses of amazement like "Doug, thank YOU for informing us of these executive orders. I didn't know about them at all...even missed Sean Hannity's presentation."  Sean presented it as a minor "C" news story – although he acted concerned during the presentation.  It shows that the internet & blogs are the best way to get information to people – this is why it is all the more important that our information is correct.  Please don't just forward sensational stories that turn out not to be true – it only hurts our cause & credibility.  Wouldn't you think the exec order story should have gotten better coverage (really non-existent coverage) than it did on the conventional news media?  Does this tell you something?
Another response – "All the more reason to get rid of Obama.  So, no more bad mouthing Romney...our very way of life is at risk."  The thought that the continuance of our way of life depends on Mitt Romney, a politician who has been on every side of every issue for the past eighteen years, is just about as depressing to me as the thought of BO being re-elected.
Lastly, our Wall Street Financial VP made time to write the following insightful response on his commute home from lower Manhattan after working literally all day & part of the night on things that only a handful of people in the world would even remotely understand.  He ends it on a dime  – thanks for the effort: 
On late train ... Great post, critical topic, must respond:

My best guess is BO signed exec order in preparation for:

US Dollar collapse and opportunity this can present to transition U.S. into Marxism.  Why?

BO is intelligent, understands economics well.  He may very well realize that increasing debt well over ratio to GDP may soon (1-2 Years maybe less) will result in foreign creditors declining to finance our debt, thus a $ collapse, rampant inflation, start of a economic downturn much more severe than 2008. BO may have assessed that he will be able to blame capitalism. Then by implementing the executive order he may take over many industries and ration many resources such as food, housing, energy, health care.

Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, BO's ideological idols both stressed timing in initiating revolutions. Both stressed need to not overextend themselves which could result in repudiation for revolutionary change. BO may be in a grey area. He may be encouraged due to reliable
intrade.com betting 60% he will win re-election, poor Republican primary participation and weak field, compliant media, OWS success now back in Zuccotti Park, and U.S. mindset capitulating to total dependence on government.  Perhaps BO is waiting for the dollar to collapse then go full force with peacetime martial law. Then he may be confronted with the major wild card: terms of our foreign creditors. I have read material from economists claiming to understand foreign creditors, the G20 and the IMF. Their conclusion is that they will not allow a total socialist or Marxist solution, understanding that historically such solutions have never resulted in a strong economy. Instead they will set up stronger global monetary system but allow all nations with much private economic opportunities and market competition. However there are global economic powers such as George Soros who believe in global socialism. We can not be sure which side would win. Maybe BO has researched this quite well: maybe he is however overextended and will be severely disappointed (ex IMF says get lost BO).

What to do now? We still may have some time for optimism. Do your part to inform as many people as you can in an unemotional way what choices lie ahead. Blog on news sites and Facebook. And email as many members of the House of Representatives as you can asking for BO's impeachment for this unconstitutional executive order.


  1. If calling for impeachment they better get started.

  2. 1 more reason for BO executive order:

    send message to corporations to play with him so they will reap some benefits if and when BO invoked martial law. Why? I base this on Deneen Borelli's recent book 'Blacklash'. One of many important points she makes is that from her perspective a fair number of corporations have gone along with BO 'crony' capitalism. These corporations feel that it is better to join him if they can't (what cowards) beat him. some of these corporations find it hard to compete in relatively free markets; hence an easy way out is to get government favors. Deneen cites insurance companies and pharmaceuticals are 2 prime industries with many companies that went along with ObamaCare. So a side effect of the executive order is for corporations (ex: energy, food,and maybe finance too ...) to play the game to decrease the pain.
