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.

Is Your Representative The Ultimate Telecommuter?

Directly below is a quote received from a member of our group re the true danger America is facing & really has faced for years - the Death Of Democracy. 
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency.  It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense & good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper & far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.  Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.  The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool.  It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."
To help explain the above quotation Steve Reed recently wrote re the relationship of the NYC electorate & Congressman Charlie Rangel's corruption & tax cheating problems - "It is profoundly regrettable when voters look the other way, overlooking the actions of their representatives, provided only that 'they get theirs.'"  Rangel won his primary race yesterday with more than double the votes of his nearest challenger.  Rangel has been beset by calls for his resignation since a House committee filed 13 ethics charges against him this summer - but not a concern to his constituents who love him.
If you are interested I suggest that you check out the following for more insight into the above thoughts of where America is frightfully but definitely headed - just click on ReturnToExcellence.net : 1)  May 17, 2010 posting of "Jon Voight's Open letter To America", 2) August 10, 2010 posting of "Can We Turn Back After Crossing This Divide?", & of course 3) Death Of Democracy @ the top on the left hand side of the blog. 
Turning now to my own quote regarding the above which builds on Mr. Reed's & graphically explains the first - I have said for quite some time "we have a portion of the electorate who is growing in size all too fast - who could not care less about what happens to America as long as they receive their government relief checks.  This portion of the electorate would not hesitate to vote for someone in jail who has raped their grandmother, been convicted of pornographic crimes, is an admitted crack cocaine dealer who dodged paying income taxes on millions of dollars of money derived from illegal activities, & was captured by our military as an enemy combatant fighting for al Qaeda against America - if that person could telecommute from his jail cell with phone, fax, & computer to approve the issuance of the relief checks needed by his hapless constituents who very soon will comprise the majority."

  1. Have received this piece before...your comments at the end reinforce the reality of what this "death" means, and it is very frightening. I keep asking why can't they see the truth? Maybe they don't want to see.
