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 Life Saving Lesson

Thanks to a subscriber to ReturnToExcellence.net for sending along this link showing a very valuable life saving lesson taught by a well trained dispatcher & a loving five year old daughter who will only fully realize what she did years later.  I hope the rest of us learn from this link to help save lives if & when a similar occasion arises in our own experience.


  1. Just watched this, it is precious. I laughed so much. Her complete control in what could have been total panic speaks volumns for her and her upbringing.

  2. Thanks for video. I was impressed that the 5 year old daughter spoke so well and was so calm.
