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 - Reversing The Apathetic Mindset That Is Controlling America

Below are two responses to the subject message that add to the discussion.  The first gives a terrific example of what many of us feel like after the Roberts' ObamaCare decision.  The second presents an excellent understanding of the mindset change that is so sorely needed in America.

I feel like a bee that spent all day collecting nectar and pollen, along came the lawn mower, took all I worked for and killed me at the same time.
---Response #2---

Doug - great chronology. It depicts a steadily growing mindset of Americans abdicating personal responsibility and embracing entitlements.  Just as one event (Pearl Harbor attack) led to chain of events to current entitlement dependency mindset, I truly hope for another new event that will lead to a rapid reversal of this mindset. This event may occur very soon (ex months): the collapse of European style entitlements due to Euro Zone bankruptcies and creditor imposition of austerity. When this happens let's hope Americans will view that as a harbinger of what lies ahead for the U.S.
