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 - Dr. Benjamin Carson's Keynote Address BO Did Not Want To Hear

Below are four responses to the subject post that I present for the benefit of subscribers who do not read the posts directly on RTE – where all comments are always posted.
Since Dr. Carson delivered his speech he has been in great demand – he has been on Hannity, Fox & Friends, & was the subject of a WSJ editorial to name three I know of.
Sean was so taken that he unabashedly told Dr. Carson he should be president.  On Fox & Friends Dr. Carson said that his older brother Curtis also was academically inclined & is a mechanical engineer who works for Honeywell in the aircraft landing division.
Both of their successes are the result of their not accepting that they were victims of anything.
In June 2002 Dr. Carson was forced to cut back on his public appearances when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, but the cancer was caught in time.  Thank Heavens.

Saw the video per RTE yesterday. Thanks for the heads up. We need more like him to come forward.

WSJ took note. Maybe now more persons of influence concerned for our country will come forward.  I can only hope.

Excellent.  Notice he said what was on his mind in a simple eloquent way. And he had the courage to say it with the Obamas sitting 5 feet away. John Boehner and the rest of the wimps A/K/A "The Republicans" in Congress should take some notes.

I think BO had all he could do to keep his facial muscles in check. The video is excellent, usually I can't stomach BO on video for that long... But I kept watching his face... I was enjoying watching him twist in the wind... Much enjoyed... I will be sharing this one...

I just watched the video.  I have one word for this man---Incredible!  Will go to the Library Monday to get his book.


  1. Have to say that I just now got to watch the video....could not help but agree with the response about watching Obama squirm....would love to hear a body language expert's take on his contortions. Also, Dr Carson was excellent! He definitely has COURAGE.

  2. One more thing to add to the responses on Dr. Carson's speech. As I watched the video, I also was watching BO's reaction. As the Dr. went over his points, though he never referred to BO by name, he looked more and more uncomfortable and every time the audience applauded, he kept his hands out of sight. I wonder what he and MO had to say about the good doctor after they left the breakfast. Would have loved to be a fly on the wall for that conversation.
