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.

Paul Harvey - "If I Were The Devil"

In 1964 national radio personality Paul Harvey wrote a prescient warning to America in a essay entitled "If I Were The Devil."  Click here to hear a 1996 updated version of the original presentation.
The late Mr. Harvey's point in the essay is to reveal how the enemies of America are successfully undermining our freedoms & morality that are the bedrocks of the nation's foundation – listening to the essay you can see how the deterioration of our society continued over the 53 years since the essay was first presented.
Every week the type of attacks Mr. Harvey was concerned about become more brazen like when football players flaunt their hatred for America in pre-game activities, or when people who have accomplished nothing in their lives demand free healthcare & free college tuition all paid for by people they don't know or have ever thought about. 
The ruinous politically correct mindset is promoted by a government that worries about transgender bathrooms but not sanctuary cities.  Thugs are honored as heroes while policemen who bring them to justice are vilified.  Freedom to follow one's religious beliefs in daily life becomes redefined as discrimination if bakers, florists, pizza store owners, & photographers cannot prove they are "religious enough" to avoid discrimination lawsuits after not participating in homosexual marriage ceremonies.  The government orders you to buy healthcare insurance & fines (taxes) you if you don't & the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court goes along with this twice.  Drug sniffing dogs & metal detectors @ schoolhouses & airports are accepted as a new normal to be put up with.
Now the above type of atrocities can only happen because Americans are not only leading busy lives & enjoying the American way of life but are taking it all for granted with little or no sense of personal or civic responsibility. 
How much longer can a society that is this poorly educated & misinformed - this oblivious to what Paul Harvey's devil is doing to them, exist?


  1. Have seen this a few times on face book, guess FB is useful for something.

    The "enemies of America" are comprised of 2 main groups:
    1- the Elite Left Marxists- tiny minority less than 1%
    2- the believable who are swayed by group 1's constant propaganda that they are "victims"

    Group 2 has been growing in size.

    We need to reverse this trend by calling out group 1's false and dangerous propaganda. We can start by stating that PC or political correctness is a deceptive term. More accurate is to define what group 1 is actually after -- SC or "stealth coup". When one views from the SC perspective, one easily realizes why the Elite Left actions are so Anti traditional American and why they excessively and continually lie.

    Doug- the examples you list are spot on - like sanctuary cities. They are significantly driving our total debt way up. But the Elite Left desires a total economic collapse of what remains watered down capitalism and replace that with a fundamentally transformed America, lead by a tight small but very powerful "vanguard" of the Proletariat with top/down controls and restrictions of economic and personal freedoms.

    Let us therefore all make every attempt to educate the increasing "victims" of Elite Left propaganda, to reverse this trend and return to free markets and individual freedoms.

    Did he anticipate that Americans would be duped to elect a Marxist president? Did he anticipate this president BO would have an administration that would sell out 20% of uranium to an adversarial nuclear power Russia? For what? To enlist their support for attaining a deal with the "mother of terrorism" Iran? Thanks to courageous Journalist Sarah Carter for uncovering the most treasonous act ever. Look for the Mainstream Media to vociferously attack her and Sean Hannity who frequently features her on his show. And how about the DNC paying for Russia to generate fake news designed to sink Trump during election- that infamous Dossier?

    We are in uncharted territory. Either we return to free markets and freedoms or we become a Maoist like command/control of most economic and individual freedoms.

    We need to ask our friends, neighbors whose side are they on? Then explain what the Left has done, why the did so, and what their end game is. Then we should relentlessly drain the swamp and jail all guilty of treason.
