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's Plan To Ingrain A Permanent Underclass Can Be Overturned

"Unfortunately, Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them.  We took their mandate & put all of our focus on the wrong problem: healthcare reform.  It wasn't the change we were hired to make; Americans were crying out for an end to the recession, for better wages & more jobs, not for changes in their healthcare. . . only a third of the uninsured are even registered to vote – about 5% of the electorate . . . to aim a huge change in mandate @ such a small percentage of the electorate made no political sense."  - NY Senator Chuck Schumer speaking @ the National Press Club last month.  Schumer went on to say that Democrats must focus on the presidential race of 2016 by specifying policies "that, if enacted, would actually improve lives & incomes. . . had we started more broadly, the middle class would have been more receptive to the idea that President Obama wanted to help them" correctly implying that none of BO's policies did this.
Now the first part of Schumer's remarks above are completely true.  But regarding the last statement, Democrats may run for political office pretending to "help improve lives & incomes" but that has been the farthest thing from BO's mind as well as anyone else's mind who joined up with him the last six years - like Schumer.  BO's plan is, & continues to be, to make people totally dependent on government - both financially through taxes & physically through universal healthcare.  BO has virtually accomplished this & now Schumer worries about the next election which for him comes up in 2016.
From the very beginning BO has had an agenda designed to ingrain a permanent underclass of government dependent people on the citizens of the American republic.  Until everyone, especially his political opponents such as congressional Republicans, start to clearly articulate an eloquent, effective, & persuasive understanding of this we are working @ a disadvantage.  For instance, recently Charles Krauthammer laid out an excellent commentary on BO's immigration lawlessness but when asked if he thought BO was dishonest he replied "no, of course not," thereby losing all credibility @ least with me.  Only Jon Voight & RTE (& possibly Democrat pollster Pat Caddell) consistently express the reality of the destructive lie that has been perpetrated on America the last six years – those who make excuses for BO, give him the benefit of the doubt, or do not recognize what has been happening after six years in plain sight of one example after another are either complicit or are just trying to build ratings for some TV program by changing positions from time to time.
But getting back to Schumer's remarks – both Schumer & Ringside Reid took losing the Senate Democrat majority & therefore control of the Senate to Republicans very badly.  Many Dems believe that BO's delay in processing the executive action on immigration hurt Hispanic turnout in the election – meaning Republicans won since low turnout is the most reliable way for Republicans to win any election.
BO knows that over 30% of Hispanics under 65 in the U.S. lack healthcare insurance – the highest rate for any group.  BO is making a major effort to sign Hispanics up for healthcare in 2015 after their small participation in 2014 – thereby once again revealing his two major goals of universal healthcare & comprehensive immigration reform.  Right from the start in 2008 BO promised that he would reintroduction comprehensive immigration reform during his first year with all of its welfare laden benefits thereby building up additional future votes for himself, his wife, or other like minded statists.  BO didn't deliver, even though he had control of Congress his first two years in office, and now he has decided to act & accordingly has painted Republicans in a corner with his unlawful executive actions.
Sooner or later deceits like BO's catch up with the perpetrators.  During the past six years Ringside Reid has blocked literally hundreds of bills from reaching the Senate floor for a vote thereby providing BO (& Democrat senators) with the luxury of never having to make a decision on anything – giving the appearance of non-involvement & innocence to the poorly educated disengaged citizenry.  This should change in 2015 with Republican control of Congress especially since all of the promises BO made six years ago have not been kept to labor unions (card check), the anti-war movement (shut down the Guantanamo prison & pull all troops out of Afghanistan & Iraq), environmentalists (cap & trade's huge energy taxes), Pelosi (seizing IRAs like Argentina did), & Conyers (indicting Bush officials on war crimes).
Schumer's comments above makes it appear that there are divisions in the Democrat Party – but it could be as simple as the lifers like Schumer realize they have ridden BO's horse as far as he thinks it will carry him & his colleagues so they go back to a faux position of acting like they want to help middle class Americans after spending the last six years trying to destroy them.
All of this gives Republicans an opening if they can develop an agenda they can clearly convey especially by showing they believe it themselves – an agenda based on the libertarian principles the country was founded upon & originally followed.


  1. Must have missed Charles Krauthammer comment, unless being a little controversial to keep on new stations, he doesn't seam that kind but he use to be a democrat.

    Good article.

  2. Hi Doug - Hope you Christmas shopping is done!

    Your publication covers a lot of ground. I have no response to the plethora of issues you raise other than the unemployment rate is under 6%, the Dow, Nasdaq, & S&P are at record levels, & more people than ever have health coverage. What a horrible legacy…

    1. SS you may be mislead by the Left's talking points. The economy is far from stellar. Main Street is not Wall Street. Median incomes have decreased in this economic "recovery". This is unprecedented. Our total debt of $18 trillion has us vulnerable to a $ collapse. Our labor participation rate of 62.8% is close to a 40 year low.

      Conclusion: economics based largely on socialism, income redistribution, and increasing dependency on government result in sub standard economic growth. free market capitalism has proven to be the world's most successful growth engine. Time to rely on it more in the US again.

      For more perspective please reference these excellent analyses from IBD:



    2. Most people on Main Street would not agree with SS. Most of Main Street has not benefited by the Obama economy. Many who have lost their jobs since 2008 may be employed now but not with the same salary as before, making less, and also not as full time employees but taking part time jobs to make ends meet. And those people who now have health insurance have it on the backs of others. How is that right? Subsidies go up to 400% of the poverty level.
      Seniors who have saved for their retirement and expected to live on interest from their savings now receive 2% and oh by the way this low interest rate also affects those who are working now and trying to save. It is much easier to build up a nest egg on 5% interest rather than 2%. And to think the Federal Reserve is going to allow interest rates to rise next year? Ha! We can't afford the government programs we have now; how can they become more affordable in the future as we keep borrowing? Don't you see, we are spending more than we have, people are receiving more and being told they deserve it and we are learning NOT to be personally responsible for anything. I don't believe the Founding Fathers had this in mind when they wrote the Constitution.

  3. An agenda based on libertarian principles is the answer to reverse the significant damage BO has inflicted over past 6 years, namely substantially increasing the dependency on government class. We must make it clear that this dependency limits our individual freedoms and also our potential to better ourselves. This should start with exposing lies that trap us into a further dependency on government. I was also appalled by Krauthammer not calling a lie a lie regarding immigration which will increases this dependency class with new immigrants and citizens losing jobs to them as a result. Our agenda must also educate all about the libertarian principles inherent in our constitution which is being trashed by the Leftists and Marxists in power. It is utterly amazing that there is no major outcry against BO numerous unconstitutional actions from immigration policy, cap n trade implementing environment policy Congress rejected and altering ObamaCare without Congressional approval. There are many others.

    We need leaders who are great communicators that can champion free markets and limited government and to be courageous to call out the Left on clear lies. Krauthammer fails. Hannity and Mark Levin can only go so far in their role in the media. We need true libertarian conservative politicians to step it up now. If not now then when? The next 2 years may be our last chance.
