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.

Declaration Of Independence

Thanks to Congressman Frelinghuysen for sending this link of the Declaration Of Independence & many other points of historical interest.  I hope you make time to get the most out of this website.


  1. I would say every rule has been accomplished to get rid of this president.

  2. Doug....just reading the Declaration of Independence makes me realize how wonderful, brave, strong our forefathers were. I so appreciate our forefathers for their convictions which led to our freedom....may we the people be so brave in the upcoming elections.
