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.

Supporting Congressman Steve King

One problem many of us have is that our own congressman &/or senators are not worth supporting – in fact we would rather work against their re-elections.
Over the years I have suggested supporting people in other states or districts where your support would do more good for the country. 
For years Carol & I have supported Iowa Congressman Steve King & I recommend that you consider doing the same.  In 2012 Steve was in a very tough race against Christie Vilsack (wife of the former Governor & current Secretary of Agriculture) in a redrawn district.  Steve has let me know that once again BO/Pelosi are targeting him in 2014 because of his outstanding congressional record including his vociferous support of the FairTax.  Steve's loss would be terrible.
Click here to donate to Congressman King's re-election campaign.  It is not too early - his opponents have already started their fund raising being led by statist, out-of-state groups from the east coast.
