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 FightsThe Minimum Wage With His Maximum Wage Idea

As part of Tuesday's midterm election four states passed measures to increase the minimum wage - Alaska ($9.75 by 2016), Arkansas ($8.50 by 2017), Nebraska ($9 by 2016), & South Dakota ($8.50 by 2015).  In addition by a large margin, Illinois voters also recommended an increase to their state's minimum wage, but the vote was nonbinding.
America was founded on the principles of limited government, self responsibility, & free enterprise.
We have none of these three ingredients any longer.  The true free enterprise system has been compromised because we don't have limited government & people do not take self responsibility.  That is not the fault of capitalism or free enterprise but rather the forsaking of our founding principles.
What can we do?  Work to get the first two principles back in the people's mindset & true free enterprise & all of its prosperity & wealth creation will follow.  We have moved so far from this – but you & I can do everything we can to rectify the situation with the example of our own self responsibility. 
Click here to hear Mike Huckabee explain why we should turn the tables on the politicians who fight over how to increase people's dependence on minimum wage employment & its impoverishment with his idea of getting people to realize employment @ the maximum wage.
