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.

AAPS - All For The Patient

Tons of poll numbers came in this past week. The three most discouraging ones I saw indicate 1) 46% of those polled oppose repeal of ObamaCare & 45% favor repeal, 2) it is about equal @ 39% apiece thinking ObamaCare is a good idea & a bad idea - down from 48% (bad idea) to 30% (good idea) in early 2010, & 3) only 45% think BO is a liberal - the lowest % ever since he became a national figure. Now the first two are hard to believe but the third one is preposterous or we are further gone than I think we are.

On one side House committees are starting new healthcare legislation to replace ObamaCare or @ least defund it through the appropriations process & pass legislation to remove the law's least popular components. On the other side the law is moving forward little by little every day creating over 150 new boards, bureaus, committees, commissions, offices, pilot programs, working groups and agencies which will issue tens of thousands of pages of onerous regulations that will change healthcare forever - source Rodney Frelinghuysen.

Thanks to one of the doctors in our group who mailed me the December newsletter of AAPS (Association of American Physicians & Surgeons) as well as two e-mail updates. Both she & I welcome any comments from other doctors or others in authority in our group pertaining to this message.

Although self-described as a non-partisan group the hostile anti-American media refers to AAPS as conservative. I have never seen them refer to the AMA or AARP (sponsor of United HealthGroup) as liberal so you start to get the picture right away - AAPS must be good for America.

AAPS was founded in 1943 & has between 3,000 & 4,000 members. AMA was founded in 1847, incorporated in 1897, & had 228,000 members as of 2009 - such number includes retired & practicing physicians along with medical students, residents, & fellows. Physician membership in AMA is thought to have decreased to less than 20% of practicing physicians. AMA membership was 244,569 in 2004 so it is declining. Most recently AMA has endorsed ObamaCare. AAPS is for repealing ObamaCare - in fact they have filed a lawsuit calling it unconstitutional.

Both ReturnToExcellence.net & these messages are dedicated to stopping the Death Of Democracy of the American Republic which means rooting out all enemies of our country - like opponents of the FairTax - & putting them out of business or otherwise tar & feathering & running them out of the country on a rail.

In this regard please do your own study of AAPS & AMA & if & when you are satisfied with both their credentials ask your own doctor if they are a member of AAPS or AMA. Let the conversation flow from there & please let the rest of us know.

AAPS says they dedicate themselves to the highest ethical standards of the Oath of Hippocrates & to preserving the sanctity of the patient-physician relationship & the practice of private medicine. The AAPS motto, "omnia pro aegroto" means "all for the patient."


  1. The AMA was intially against Obamacare. The main source of income for the AMA is the monopoly they hold on coding numbers that we are all forced to use ( I have heard estimates of 75% of the AMA annual income). When Obamacare became aware of the AMA position, discussion was held about using alternative coding sources and the AMA secured their continued income with a change of heart for Obamacare and are now in favor of it. Amazing!! And the AMA claims they stand behind what is good for the people. Interesting little tidbit. Keep up the good work.

  2. Reading your post and the worry of BO's reelection - out of 2,000 pages of the health bill I hear only four points that are always used. If that is all the Republicans have for negotiation they need someone who can decipher the rest of the bill.
