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.

Responses - Eye-Opening Insight Into America's Youth

Last night's subject message brought many varied responses as indicated below.  Responder #3 shares my two passions for America – the FairTax & higher education.  He presents links to both an intense video & report to Congress that may be too heavy for all except those truly interested in what happened to education in America or put another way what happened to America & why.  You can also click on The Five Points Of Citizen Control – one of the timeless pieces from the left hand side of Return To Excellence

Excellent video. Posted the URL. Thank you.
Food for thought, Why are America's children over weight? A box of spaghetti costs $0.79 & can feed the whole family, while 1 cucumber cost $1.35 to add to a salad. Could this be one reason?

Doug - Left unchecked (continued BO entitlements), the socialist mindset crashes (bankrupt). The poor and poorly educated will suffer the most. If we have any chance to reverse this mindset, Paul Ryan or Senator DeMint must clearly state that their plans are structured to prevent this and save 'core' entitlements.  DeMint has a better plan but Ryan is in the spotlight. Will either step it up?

Hey Doug. Call me on my cell sometime. Meanwhile, here is an interesting video that goes a long way toward describing our "education" problem, at least as it relates to history, the constitution and economics - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUYCBfmIcHM.  This link goes with the video...it is Dodd's original report to Congress in 1954: http://www.scribd.com/doc/3768227/Dodd-Report-to-the-Reece-Committee-on-Foundations-1954
