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.

A Further Response - Valueless Human Life

Below is a message that I present that was posted directly on ReturnToExcellence.net by a subscriber to the blog.  This will be redundant to all of you except those who do not get your messages directly from the blog & read the comments as they are posted.  My comments are in red below.
In this case the writer believes that all of our problems can be solved by everyone voting Republican - "just this once" - thereby "ridding ourselves of the Socialists."  I refer everyone to the blog posting of December 8, 2009 entitled "How To Vote The Bums Out" that was followed by three similar messages that month that I believe comprise a better method of returning America to her founding principles - which is what many of us, but certainly not all of us, want.  Please refresh your memory & see where you stand six months later on the strategy presented in that posting.
After reading the message below Carol reminded me of Friedrich Hayek's dedication in "The Road To Serfdom" - "To The Socialists Of All Parties."  And we certainly have enough Socialists in the Republican Party to make me feel the strategy below is only a way to perpetuate the two party system @ the citizenry's expense.

Since we have, for years, given permission for the two corrupt political corporations to walk all over and destroy our Constitution, it will undoubtedly take more than just a few years to repair the damage caused by our neglect.  it may in fact be way too late for repair & if we have been neglectful we can only blame ourselves for the results of our negligence

I believe we need to implement a two step strategy to begin moving in the right direction (no pun intended).

Step #1) Demonstrate our power by voting completely Republican (just this once). This is the only way we can be sure of ridding ourselves of the Socialists, and, at the same time, letting the politicians, the media, the Hollywood liberals and the entitlement crowd, know that we are in control, and not them.  but they are in control - not us

Step #2) For subsequent elections we can begin the process of electing strict Constitutional Conservatives. why haven't we been doing this if this is what the people want?

Any other strategy runs the risk of us defeating ourselves and failing to send a very loud and clear message. We can not turn this around by attempting to do it all in one shot. we most likely will never turn it around peacefully since we are outnumbered right now & are losing ground every day as the entitlement program enrollments continue to grow


  1. Both the article and response are correct - for a faster correction we should vote for Republicans and fast. We can not wait for enough non socialist or tea party members to come up to run, but vote for the ones who do run with an R behind them. It is critical to remove what we have in power now. I have been telling everyone to watch their words and decipher them - they are not hiding much now that their real beliefs are out. As I heard from a communist tonight in the Khrushchev era , we do not have to fight you, we will feed you small parts of socialism and you will accept them - than you will wither like rotting fruit and lose to communism.

  2. Doug,

    We are not going to succeed in our objective unless and until we do the following:

    1. The ballot box has an additional entry that can be check marked to indicate none of the candidates are acceptable. This will send a message to both the political parties.

    2. The political pendulum that currently is on the extreme left cannot be swung to the right in one easy step. It will never succeed unless it is done gradually. The reality is that it is difficult for the voters to accept sudden shifts in ideology.
