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.

Congressman Steve King's Call For Help

In a recent message entitled Electoral College Analysis & Strategy For Strengthening America I wrote "Two House candidates needing support are Anna Little in NJ & Steve King in IA.  Both are FairTax supporters & Congressman King has already been attacked by his opponent for supporting the FairTax.  King is in a tight race for reelection in a redrawn district."
Until today I didn't realize just how tight this race was.  Congressman King is being targeted by BO/Pelosi because of his outstanding congressional record including his vociferous support of the FairTax.  Steve feels vulnerable because he is running in a newly drawn district in what has become a swing state – Iowa.  His high profile opponent has unleashed a tidal wave of negative ads costing more than Steve spent in all five of his previous campaigns for Congress combined.  Many of these ads directly attack the FairTax with false misleading information.  Steve King's loss would be a terrible blow to the FairTax & America.
Iowa is the first swing state to start voting & that early vote began today.  In 2008 Iowa cast 35% of their ballots by election day.  This means some of the votes that count in the 2012 election are already being cast.
