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.

Improvements To BO's Budget Plan

Last week was another monumental despicable one for America's finances under BO's administration. First BO presented a $3.728 trillion dollar budget where 31% of the outlays are financed through borrowing - meaning another $1.15 trillion will be added to our national debt. The federal budget was $2.7 trillion only two years ago. Next, Congress voted to increase the debt ceiling by $1.9 trillion - this followed a $290 billion debt ceiling increase on December 17. The debt ceiling is a tool to provide the Treasury with more leeway in the administration of debt - as if they need more leeway.


  1. Add one we can do much faster than any of the others - one that We The People can grasp and claim as victory for our country. This November vote to take back the houses of this nation,
    VOTE out the infection.

  2. The children's pledge as well as the graph were real eye openers!
