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.

Pete Stark - No Problem - Throw The Constitution Out

Thanks to our Midwest member for sending along the link for this video of an exchange between California Congressman Pete Stark & one of his constituents re what the federal government is not authorized to do if the Constitution is followed - which of course it is not every day of the week in our nation's capital.

Stark has been elected 18 times in 37 years so the majority of his constituents approve of his positions. Surprisingly Stark is graded "D" by NTU with a 27% favorable rating - one of the highest of any Democrat. Being this favorable to taxpayers' interests in California makes me wonder how he got reelected so many times.


  1. Have seen this video, it shows what they really think about you - Mr. America!

    I do wonder how many in congress are promised an Ambassadorship when the transfer into socialism occurs.

  2. How many more like him are out there? Scary.

  3. Constitution? What Constitution? Oh, you mean that extremely old and outdated document written by men who owned slaves! That can't really be law since there were no earmarks attached to it.

  4. I thought the woman spoke eloquently and to the point! Did u c the look on Stark's face?? Deer in headlights.... had no answer.
    OMG this is what's been running our country!!
