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.

Valueless Human Life

So many people have recently told me they are throwing in the towel (@ least temporarily) with comments such as "I am not thick skinned enough to continue fighting" & "in this great Country we get the government we elect."

Now with right & wrong turned upside down - with the Arizona people having to defend themselves for their very lives against criminal illegal aliens when the federal government just won't, with the Gulf oil spill continuing for over two months with absolutely no one in charge & our own government blocking any attempt by BP et al to help, & with General McChrystal being called from the battlefield in Afghanistan to the White House because of some article in a flea bitten publication it all just shows how valueless every human life other than those of the elites has become in America. Why would anyone want to enlist in the military or border patrol under these circumstances? And of course this is exactly BO's plan.

Below is an anonymous piece sent to us from a subscriber to ReturnToExcellence.net that sums all of this up for us in a few short sentences.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

The last sentence means that if the "multitude of fools" is large enough political candidates representing people of substance in America will never win another presidential election.


  1. Doug - I have been wrestling with the apathy of our citizens trying to rectify in my own mind their ambivalence to their government’s actions. In my opinion, a large part of apathy is fear. Afraid of the police powers of our government is a real concern. Everyone knows when big brother comes down on you it’s going to be bad. Throughout history fear of state silences men and we are at that point in the life span of our government. Fear to speak out and object to our government's overwhelming interface in our lives is genuine fear of retribution.

  2. Yes , good article, show support for those who are willing to stick their neck out. But I worry there are not enough with common sense to change the state we have stumbled on.

  3. I think that the 'multitude of fools' (even the 'gimme, gimme's) are having second thoughts about this. Hopefully, the GOP doesn't give us a worse fool in 2012 to run against him.
