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.

Trilogy Shows Need For Americans To Regather Strength

"I wish you all much success, but I will not be participating.  After this past election cycle, I have decided that I am in need of some deserved rest and relaxation from all the political stuff.  I have also curtailed my e-mail access.  Good Luck!"  Sent to me last week by a deeply patriotic friend & FairTax supporter who obviously is worn out & still depressed almost five months after the election.
Counting the above note I received a trilogy of messages one recent day including - below "are links to a 2 part series by a Notre Dame Business School professor.  Many of his points are spot on.  He raises some points you have made on RTE such as the role public education has had in creating the uneducated voter."  The professor is a former Democrat.
Link #1 – begins with "Many Americans are wondering how their country, a supposed 'center-right' nation, reached the point of electing and reelecting the most radical leftist administration in its history."  Covers what readers of this blog know as Citizen Control Points 1 & 2.

Link #2 – excerpts – "If you are old enough, you can remember Democrats such as Ted Kennedy, in their rare candid moments, rhapsodizing that someday, when they could get 50% of the U.S. population plus one receiving a government check of some kind, they would never again lose a national election! The notorious but true 47% cited by Mitt Romney apparently is close enough....So the Democrats have a vested need to keep the poor down. Our permanent welfare class is no accident. Government incentives for people to stay poor may be well-calculated."  Covers Death Of Democracy.

The third message in the trilogy included a clip from the first episode of the HBO program The Newsroom that was originally televised on June 25, 2012.  The clip was sent by our SC businessman along with the note "The following includes use of some four-letter words that might offend some, but it should be heard by all. We must reverse this trend."   This clip & various versions of it have been making their way around the internet.  I replaced the version sent to me & present this one without the obscenities.
So there is our trilogy – 1) a real life message written by a friend who has worked tirelessly for America until the last defeat by BO took the starch out of him (& many others who have written to me), 2) a two part op-ed series written by an ex-Democrat who accurately defines many of our problems thereby offering solutions, & 3) a dramatization of a TV show that makes many points that need to be addressed.
Now we don't know how long it will take the citizenry & particularly people of substance to regather the strength to restore one of God's two great gifts to the world – America; but we do know what it will take to do so – the unleashing of the human spirit in the free enterprise system.  But as Mary O'Grady wrote in August 2006 "... what seems to be tempering the hope of even positive thinkers these days is the growing, sobering realization that the burden of socialism is exceedingly hard to throw off, even when patently obvious that it is the chief culprit producing underdevelopment, poverty, & misery." 


  1. As I see it, Republicans HAVE to give some ground, even though they will not like it. To be ultra strict following their principles implies DEFEAT in elections.

    Solution for Republicans - with all spending being done by present gov't (printing large amounts of money - eventually will cause
    gov't to collapse, or close to it). Will not be this year. When I do not know (am not that smart). Large amounts of money being printed by gov.t printing press - will have to be repaid
    in future. I for one not worried - as I will not be around due to my age. Ones who will suffer will be our grandchildren as they will have to pay the debt.

  2. Well done video - first time I have seen it - am sending to others. Posting on face book.

    Yes we are getting weary of reading stuff about George crossing the river - bet they were weary as well.

    Curriculum in some schools is starting to brainwash the children. If the young parents starting at 5th grade do not stop it (through help from Fox News) the country will be lost.

    If only I were born with a golden tongue.
