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.

BO Is Constitutional - The Supremes' Decisions Are Not

"And that's why we enacted incentives that are beginning to give rise to a clean energy economy, that are starting to translate into real jobs making solar panels, making windmill blades, making cutting-edge batteries. In fact, almost $25 million of our investment went to a plant right here in Elyria that's helping produce the car batteries of the future."  BO speaking in Elyria, Lorain County, Ohio on January 22, 2010 as part of his economic improvement tour to show America how much he was interested in creating jobs

One year into BO's first term he had concentrated on everything but improving the economy & his handlers had told him that he had to make an economic improvement tour to show how much he was interested in job creation.  I was especially interested in the above quote because my brother-in-law lives in Elyria, Ohio.  It also shows one of BO's real incentives – the others are universal single-payer healthcare & comprehensive immigration reform.  He is well on his way with the last two.
During a speech @ Georgetown University On Tuesday BO used a suit jacket & handkerchief as props to make his point that we have to fight climate change by curbing principally coal fired power plant emissions although other power plant emission curbs will also do.  Raising electric rates for consumers is the method of emission control BO has in mind & he is planning on the EPA doing the dirty work through increased regulations without participation by Congress (our representatives).
Now is any of this on your priority list with the livelihoods of tens of millions of Americans significantly reduced & many people in their 50s or older never being able to work again – not to mention all of the scandals circulating around the IRS & State & Justice Departments.
Now I don't offer much hope in what is currently happening to our country & it is not getting better - it is getting worse.  The two Supreme Court decisions on Wednesday didn't help – not the specific decisions themselves but the unconstitutional decision to take the cases in the first place – just like it was unconstitutional for the Supremes to have taken the ObamaCare case in 2012, they should not have accepted the homosexual marriage cases either.  The Founders never intended nine unelected judges to tell the rest of the citizenry what is up.
In the case of BO he is constitutional having won two elections & elections have consequences & we are paying for them & will continue to pay for years to come.  Click here to hear BO explain just one of the ways.
