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.

Easter Ends BO's Latest But Not Last Holiday Schedule

Subscribers to ReturnToExcellence.net & the members of this e-mail club were smart enough to know that even after the election in January of Scott Brown to the Senate as the so-called "41st vote" that BO would not give up on what he regards as his legacy - namely passing Universal Healthcare.  Two January messages in  particular proved this by stating "his (BO's) top priority remains the same - Universal Healthcare" & "Pelosi has signaled that Universal Healthcare - BO's highest priority - is not dead saying that she 'will climb the wall, catapult over the wall, or helicopter over the wall to get it passed into law.'"  How sad for America.
Thanks only to the participants of Town Hall Meetings & Tea Parties - several of which many of you attended - we have been able to hold off passage of BO's plan but another chapter will be coming to a head shortly.  After the initial stalling last year BO wanted a healthcare reform bill on his desk to sign before July 4, then the August recess, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, & Christmas & now he rounds out his current holiday schedule by calling for congressional passage before Easter.  If we hold him off again watch out for Memorial Day.
Now people in our group also know why BO is obsessed with getting his Universal Healthcare reform legacy in place - something that FDR, Truman, LBJ, Carter, & Clinton could not do.  Clinton had moved to the right @ this similar point - BO hasn't & won't.  So BO is working from this ideological position & obviously does not care about the will of the people or even what is best for them.
Why else would he be unconcerned about the tens of trillions of dollars of Medicare unfunded liabilities or the estimate by Medicare's chief actuary that as many as 20% of Medicare providers will either go out of business or will stop seeing Medicare patients when the proposed $500 billion in Medicare cuts go into effect - if these cuts never go into effect just add $500 billon to the deficit in a lose-lose for America.  Even without the Public Option rationing is guaranteed - how do you add (through unconstitutional mandates) 30 million people to the healthcare roles without a large increase in doctors without rationing?  Every incentive in BO's plan is for people not to want to become a doctor.  If this is not enough for you wade through the blog postings for more.
Over the past year I have documented the onslaught of BO's planned destruction & it will not end even when the cows come home.  As you all know I have conducted many "call Washington" projects & I hate them all.  Leadership means that our elected reps know what the right thing to do is & they don't need people theoretically less informed jamming their switchboards reminding them not to sell the country down the river.  If you can muster the conviction once again & of course if this is important to you please determine your own course of action to make your voice heard to both your congressman & senators.  Just let me know if you need help with who to call.  Thanks to a member of our group - a young mother of a two year old - who gave me the list of the wavering congressman.  I will be glad to share it with you if you like.
In the meantime below is a message I received from one of the many doctors in our group pointing out among other things the disaster of the Massachusetts mandatory healthcare plan that was the brainchild of the despicable Mitt Romney who masquerades as a conservative & gets away with it by the pitiful Republican Party.  Submitting to BO's plans without another round of fight only guarantees the same result for America as the sorry Massachusetts example.
Doug.....there was an editorial in the WSJ on Monday that described well what is coming our way.  Mass. has "required" insurance.  You get what you pay for.  The government does not have the money to cover what they offer so the level/amount of care has to go down.  The government is already "killing" private practice.  Your chart is no longer a tool for the doctor to treat the patient.....The privacy of your chart has been severely violated.  It is open to the insurance industry to review and just recently, Medicare is now auditing hospital and office charts to check for "correct coding".  In English this means that the chart must contain components outlined by the government or the doctor could by fined.  How is that....You intimidate the doctors into submission by cutting fees.  From March 1st thru the 10th Medicare is holding all claims because Congress has refused to fix the physician fee schedule (mind you this has gone on for years).  What other industry would tolerate a 10 day freeze with no monies coming in?  The picture is not pretty.  Our only hope is for the public (groups like yours) to wake up and speak up.  Have a good day.
