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.

Huckabee @ The NH Conservative Freedom Summit

Thanks to a long time subscriber to RTE for sending the link of Mike Huckabee speaking @ the NH Conservative Freedom Summit last month – Governor Huckabee was the clean-up batter @ the conference that was held by Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity Foundation.
Governor Huckabee's speech begins @ the 4:30 mark.  He discusses the FairTax @ 19:30 & best of all he provides a ninth grade civics lesson concerning the Supreme Court @ 21:40 – a lesson taken right out of RTE as I'm sure many readers will readily recognize.
If Governor Huckabee becomes a 2016 presidential candidate he will bring the FairTax & the Founder's intent regarding the Judiciary Branch – two enormous differences from today that will go a long way toward changing the mindset of this country for the better.
