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.

Ever Wonder When 2 + 2 Did Not Equal 4?

Thanks to our mid-west member who sent along this link of a video showing the amazing precision of the principles of mathematics . It was my study of mathematics during my college days a long time ago that helped form my understanding that there was no beginning of the universe & eternity really exists in two directions (past & future) - ever wonder when 2 + 2 did not equal 4?

In line with all of this is the discovery this past week where astronomers sighted dozens of potential Earth-size planets in orbits around stars other than the sun. These sightings are based on NASA's Kepler space telescope which now has over 1,200 possible worlds in their view. These findings illustrate the infinite nature of the universe & the unlimited potentials that lie ahead.

Bill Hendricks offers the best answer to whether or not intelligent life exists on any of these planets when he writes "I have long maintained that the greatest argument for the existence of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe is the fact that they have not attempted to contact us."
