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.

Huckabee Commentary - The Elimination Of The IRS Through The FairTax

click on graphic to enlarge
Click here to hear Mike Huckabee's excellent commentary about eliminating the IRS as part of the FairTax legislation, HR 25.
Under the FairTax every individual decides, instead of the IRS, how much tax they pay & when they pay it.  The April 15 income tax filing deadline is eliminated & instead you "do your taxes" at the checkout counter whenever you make a purchase - and walk away with no chance of an audit.  Under the FairTax, the ordinary citizen will never come into contact with a federal agency for the purposes of collecting taxes again.
In the video Mike also recommends that even under the current income tax system that all government subsidies to all entities – religious or not – be ended.  Mike says – "If you want something pay for it.  Leave the government out of it."  That very simple idea by itself would solve so many of our problems starting with the lesson that government is not free.
