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 - BO Keeps Republicans Talking About & Agreeing To The Wrong Things

Below are four responses to the subject message that add to the discussion.  I present them for the benefit of the entire readership – not just those who read RTE directly on the internet where all responses are always posted. 
The first response provides valuable information re Marco Rubio, the second points out the upcoming debt ceiling confrontation gets us right back to where we were in August 2011 so the Republicans would have been better off to have fought the battle with BO then than now, & the third & fourth are a thread of discussions re readership & money.
---Response #1---

Hi Doug - I am vacationing in Florida and the local media repeated over & over in a negative light that Marco Rubio voted against the bill to avoid the fiscal cliff. It is not easy being a Republican these days in Congress.


---Response #2---


Debt ceiling debate will be fight of decade. We must win NOW else our foreign creditors will later harshly restructure our debt and spending. Argue this over and over every day over blog sites. Tweet as many Congress representatives, not just Michele Bachmann a champion we can rely on.

Go ahead and risk a government shutdown. If we had one in Aug 2011 we might today be much better off. If we have a government shutdown agree to no more than a $500 billion increase over 12 months. This will be just under half our projected 12 month deficit and force us to better prioritize spending. Again it is much better we do this than a group of sheiks, Chinese, and IMF accountants.

If not now when? Just do it NOW.

Again Doug - outstanding post with relevant details.
---Response #3 From BZ---
I admire you Doug. You are doing a good job, but as they say you are knocking your head against a wall - meaning your thoughts and comments are true, but you need thousands, no - millions of people on your side, not thousands.

I wonder how many people got re-elected this past election?  People were saying, "throw the bums (congress) out."  How many of them were re-elected?

RTE - Happy New Year BZ - You know I admire & rely on your opinion. Do you have another suggestion? If we stop trying we just go right down the tubes with no fight for one of God's great gifts to the world – America.
---Answer From BZ---
And a Merry Christmas to you and Carol.

Do not stop what you are doing. You will slowly get more and more people who share your views,which are good. Your views on economy are very good and correct. Only drawback, it takes time to gain followers.  Lots of time.  It would be good if your views were published in various publications to gain followers. I know you had articles published in WSJ.

It would be better yet, if you had several people with millions of dollars to back you.

You never know, maybe someone who reads your comments, will come to you with money, for your cause.

When you least expect it - some one comes to your aid.

RTE - Google provides me with statistics. ReturnToExcellence is currently read by 3,000 people per month. On one day recently there were 300 people from China alone who found the blog on the internet. After the USA, Ukraine is usually second in readership. I think this is a start I never imagined – but that is the American way even without the millions you mention.
