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 - Individual Rights & Homosexual Marriage

For the benefit of those who do not read RTE directly online below are three responses to the subject message that are now part of the original online posting.  The first responder thinks we would be better off with heterosexuals working to leave state-controlled marriage than homosexuals fighting to be put under its control.  The second responder believes that had the FairTax (& its inherent tax simplification) been enacted homosexual marriage may never have been an issue in the first place.  The third responder correctly identified why we have the push for changes in marriage laws.
The thoughts expressed in this message & the original subject posting offer a solution to the homosexual marriage question that has been elevated to the Supreme Court level of our judiciary system.  For those interested in a solution purely on this issue please read both postings carefully & then work for the best interest of your country using whatever information makes sense to you including these messages.  For those who are interested in destructively using the homosexual marriage issue to undermine the American way of life please realize your agenda is being exposed more & more every day & it is just a matter of time before you are tarred & feathered & run out of the country on a rail.

Doug - I agree entirely. I also saw the Dr. Ablow interview and wrote to him immediately afterwards.

I prefer marriage without government approval. They simply use it to incorporate your marriage and to hold each of you responsible for things the other may do. They use benefits to entice you and then strings to control you. It is another source of government control. I believe in the U.S. the marriage license first became widespread as a method of preventing whites and blacks from marrying.

A few years ago I asked my minister why his power to marry was "vested in him by the state", and not by God. He stated he wouldn't want a married couple to live in sin. I replied that a couple can get married before the state and immediately cheat on each other. Another couple can get married without state approval, but before God and be faithful the rest of their lives. Why would the second be living in sin? He never acted the same towards me (and I attend a different church today).

In my opinion, heterosexual couples should be fighting to leave a state-controlled approved marriage instead of gay couples fighting to be put under its control.

this was my post on Facebook this morning.

I haven't mentioned anything on the homosexual marriage debate. But let me make this clear, if the folks that are against homosexual marriage would support the FairTax, that is a national sales tax instead of the most divisive tax - the federal income tax - most of the support for homosexual marriage would probably falter. In fact with the FairTax homosexual marriage may never have been an issue in the first place. The federal government is screwing us on so many levels with this income tax including dividing Americans rich vs. poor, corporations vs. people, etc. I am providing a link below of an older but still relevant article on this issue. No matter how the Supreme Court rules, we still should be pushing for the FairTax or some form of national sales tax.

The last sentence in the posting is the real reason for change in marriage laws.
