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.

Responses - Broadway Comes To Belgium & Classic Christmas Messages

The spirit of Christmas & fun of year end Holiday celebrations were embodied in the recent postings of the spontaneity of the singing of the Hallelujah Chorus in shopping malls & the Julie Andrews' song in Belgium that lightened people's hearts based on the overwhelming positive responses received - which was my intent in presenting them.

I recommend to the many new subscribers to ReturnToExcellence.net to go to the "Classics" section on the left hand side of the blog for two previous favorite Christmas messages - A Contrast In Christmas Messages from December 22, 2007 & In Hoc Anno Domini from December 24, 2008. Long time subscribers should like the refresher.

Below are three representative responses to Broadway Comes To Belgium from three very serious Americans each of whom make enormous contributions to our postings throughout the year. Responses like these put me in the Holiday spirit.

---Response #3---
